December 20: Positive before Xmas rush

Posted on 20 December 2002  - 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).

The atmosphere at the training ground has been very positive this week.

Of course, we were a little disappointed not to beat Arsenal because we deserved to. But the performance was very good and now we have to build on that.

Christmas is a very important time of the season and we start at Manchester City on Monday.

I remember we won the last time we played at Maine Road, 1-0, Sergei Rebrov scored after 85 minutes or something like that. All I can say is let's go and do it again!

We know City will be tough. They have lots of quality players, especially going forward, and Anelka is dangerous up front.

As I said, this is a very important 13 days for the club with five games, four away, the last one in the FA Cup.

I believe we have the squad to cope now and personally, I feel ready for the challenge as well.

If I do not get the chance to talk to you after Monday's game, have a great Christmas and here's to a Happy New Year at Spurs!
