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).

Wolves is a tough game to come back to after an international break, but we're all determined to get the first two matches against United and City out of our system.

If those two results had been in the middle of the season we'd still have been disappointed, don't get me wrong, but to get off to such a bad start in the Premier League hasn't been ideal.

I'm pretty convinced those teams will be in the top three come the end of the season, so we can't get too down, but we were gutted to concede eight goals, that's the main thing, especially five at home.

We've got to bounce back and we'll aim to do that at Molineux. If we manage to win there, three points on the board will make the table look a whole lot better.


Jamie O'Hara has moved to Wolves and that's another good signing for them, a confident player who will get on the ball and try to create things.

As a team, we want to stop the goals going in. As a defender, clean sheets are high on my list of priorities. I must say, conceding eight goals hit me hard, conceding goals at any time hurts, but I hadn't conceded five in a Tottenham shirt before City. Hopefully it will be the last time.

It's a really exciting time for the club with the arrivals of Emmanuel Adebayor and Scott Parker.

I've played against Adebayor on many occasions and he's scored on too many of them, so I'm delighted he's on our team now. Hopefully he'll get off to a flying start at Wolves because when he's on form, there is no better striker around.

I spoke about Scotty earlier in the week. As I said, he'll get in amongst it and away from us, he'll sit in front of the defence and do that holding job for us.

Both players will only help the squad and let's hope we get them off to a winning start on Saturday.

All the best!
