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).

IT WAS a crucial game at Leeds and important to get the points.

A lot of away games are very fractured and nervous but I thought once we got in front, we showed ability. We got hold of the ball in the second half, got the goal we deserved and went from there. We missed chances but we played with efficiency and were the better team

Robbie Keane certainly has the habit of scoring against his ex-clubs. He didn't celebrate again on Saturday and that's the strange thing about it, in the emotion of the game he remembers not to celebrate.

That must be hard. Sometimes a goalscorer will do the same thing every time he scores yet he has such a presence of mind he doesn't celebrate when he scores against an old team.

People are talking about Stephane Dalmat at the moment. He's an interesting player. He's very strong, very pacy and he's great for us because he can attract attention and therefore make space for other players. There is no question about it, he is an old fashioned dribbler and he'll give something the fans to hold onto.
