Digger's Diary

Posted on 14 May 2004  - 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).

IT WAS nice to get back to winning ways against Blackburn on Saturday. It's been a while. I thought we played well, passed the ball around and created a few chances. The crowd were great again and it was enjoyable to get that win.<P>IT'S ALWAYS difficult when you haven't won for a while and although there were a few nervous moments, we got there in the end. We were all aware of what happened last season against Blackburn and winning made for a much better walk around the pitch to thank the fans. We all want to make it better next season. <P><IMG src="/media/images/decorative/photos/apics1/digger.jpg" align=left border=1 DESIGNTIMEURL="/photos/apics1/digger.jpg">JERMAIN DEFOE scored a fantastic winner and he's all about goals. I didn't know too much about him before he came to the club but he wants to score all the time. He shoots from anywhere and is an out and out striker. He thrives on goals. People have talked about him in terms of going to the European Championships this summer and I'm not sure there are many strikers like him who England can call on at the moment. I think England have to pick him because if he hits form, he'll score goals and can score a lot in a short space of time. I'm confident he'll go because someone who can finish like that can turn games in an instant. <P>I JUST think with Jermain, he'll score goals whatever level he plays at. It's a similar situation with Robert Earnshaw, my Welsh team-mate playing at Cardiff. Earny scored goals in Division Two, has stepped up and done the same in Division One and has also done it at international level. They are both confident in their ability and whatever level they play at, they know what they can do. They will score goals no matter what. Natural goalscorers, it's just in them. <P>TALKING about goals, I'd be delighted to finish my season off with one in our last game at Wolves on Saturday. It's been a difficult season and it would be nice to score and whet the appetite for next season. <P>WOLVES will be a tough one, don't worry about that. They've been playing well of late and maybe that's because the pressure is off them.&nbsp&#59;They are going out there and getting what they can from the season and are playing well. They have some decent, experienced players and their front two Cort and Camara&nbsp&#59;can make things happen. It's their last home game as well and, like us on Saturday, they won't want to lose in front of their own fans. They might be down already but they have a lot to play for on Saturday - their last home game in the Premiership, Dennis Irwin playing his last game and I'm sure Paul Ince will want to make a point.&nbsp&#59;They will give everything. <P><B><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 20pt&#59; FONT-FAMILY: 'Monotype Corsiva'&#59; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">All the best,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p></SPAN></B> <B><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 20pt&#59; FONT-FAMILY: 'Monotype Corsiva'&#59; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">Simon</SPAN></B> <P><B><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 20pt&#59; FONT-FAMILY: 'Monotype Corsiva'&#59; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt"><o:p></o:p></SPAN></B>&nbsp&#59;
