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).

I WAS DELIGHTED with the way we came back from such a disappointing first half in Sunday's FA Cup tie at Manchester City and were able to change the game so dramtically.

We had a young side out and it was such a vibrant performance in the second half.

We could have scored another couple of goals but having said that, when City came again at the death, they could have had a couple of goals too.

I think we showed plenty of character though and I'm just as delighted for our wonderful supporters.

It was great for Gary Doherty to score our equaliser. He's filled in excellently for Dean Richards of late and is a centre-half who is always likely to get a goal when he goes up for set-pieces.

If you look at his Luton record it's a fantastic record but three-quarters of his games were at centre-half.

He used to go up and score goals. He had a knack. I had another player like that in Steve Foster at Luton, the ball seems magnetised to their heads. It was a great corner from Helder Postiga and that was something we worked on, so I was pleased with that as well.
