Digger's Diary

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'S FUNNY&nbsp&#59;sometimes, football. Look at the Aston Villa game. We matched each other 4-4-2 and it looked like whoever made the first mistake would lose it&nbsp&#59;but as soon as&nbsp&#59;they went ahead, we started playing as we hoped we would. We opened them up a few times, Rohan did well and Robbie is always so dangerous in the box like that. It was a good three points. <P>I'VE BEEN asked about Stephen Carr and what he brings as captain. Carry has been here a long time and it's only right he's captain. He's done&nbsp&#59;a great job motivating the lads. He's great to have around, always bubbly and great to have in the dressing room. He can be serious when he wants to be and I think he's the best right-back in the league by a mile. It's great to have him at the club. We all hate losing but Carry's more animated than most. That's a good thing. He'll let you know if you're not doing it and that's what you need. I've been out for a while now, he was out with his knee for a year and&nbsp&#59;if&nbsp&#59;I ever needed advice or anything I'm sure I'd be able to talk to him. We've always had a good relationhip. He's right-back, I'm right midfield so we always talk about the game. He has been great with me. <DIV align=center><IMG src="/media/images/decorative/photos/diggersdiary.gif" width=360 DESIGNTIMEURL="/photos/diggersdiary.gif"></DIV><P>WE DEFINITELY owe Blackburn one after last season when we were all over the shop and they took advantage of it. They have good players and it's strange how it doesn't work out sometimes, like it has been with us. A good win against Villa and we can go up there with confidence. I remember Jamie's slice of all time last season. We're tight and we can go up there and be difficult to beat again. We had the Middlesbrough game before that and sometimes no matter what you do, things don't go right. I think we're looking stronger, not conceding as many goals so that's a plus. <P>I''D LOVE to be at Blackburn but I'll be here getting fit. People say to me I must be having a great time, going away, doing loads of things but it's relentless trying to get fit. I haven't got a date to aim for and that's the most frustrating part. When I get that I'll be able to work to it and I'll be alright then. <P>&nbsp&#59;&nbsp&#59;<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> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt"><B><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 20pt&#59; FONT-FAMILY: 'Monotype Corsiva'&#59; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">Simon<o:p></o:p></SPAN></B> <P>&nbsp&#59;
