Coach's Corner

Posted on 28 January 2004  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Jimmy Neighbour is delighted with the character shown by his Under-17s after their Christmas hangover.

The youngsters have lost just one in six either side of the Christmas break - that defeat a disappointing performance at Wimbledon in their first week back.

The acid test has followed in the last fortnight. Jimmy's lads have performed well against table-topping West Ham and Southampton, drawing both games 1-1 and drawing praise from their coach along the way.

Jimmy said: "The first game after Christmas against Wimbledon was poor and I said afterwards I would give them that one.

"Credit to them, they've come back and played well against two good sides.

"We played Southampton a couple of months ago and lost 4-2 and if we'd have stayed the same we'd have lost the game on Saturday by the same score.

"But we didn't because we've improved defensively, our approach play and build-up play is a lot better and we are scoring more goals. I'm really pleased with how they've turned out at the moment.

"Now they've got to do it against the so-called 'lesser' sides."
