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 THOUGHT we defended well at Blackburn on Saturday and deserved a point at least.

It was a slow tempo in the first half, a bit sloppy and a bit sleepy but I thought after half-time the game exploded a little.

I thought we looked the more likely for 20 minutes but Blackburn came into it and what can I say, that's the second away game in succession we've conceded an away goal to lose the game and from the same player as well.

You expect the home team to have a fair amount of the play when you go away but I thought at times we had as much of the play. I didn't think we were in terrible trouble.

Our goalkeeper did well when called upon but unless you are a very, very good side in this league you don't go away expecting to win easily. You expect a hard game and half-way through the second half I thought we looked comfortable and that we were going to get perhaps a draw or even snatch it.
