Every time you get a point there it's a good result. <P>The crowd were absolutely brilliant last week. During the game, if it's not going right on the pitch, they can make such a difference.&nbsp&#59;When they are positive and&nbsp&#59;get behind us they are brilliant. On Saturday they stayed positive and that helped us stay positive. It's the same when<IMG src="/media/images/decorative/photos/cpix/lee3.jpg" align=right border=1 DESIGNTIMEURL="/photos/cpix/lee3.jpg"> you go to places like Manchester City, Newcastle - Spurs fans are no different and they showed that on Saturday.&nbsp&#59; <P>As soon as&nbsp&#59;Leeds scored I thought 'here we go'. That was all we needed because we desperately wanted to win the game. <P>But the crowd kept singing, remained positive and it helped us get to where we wanted to be. <P>You could see when we scored how much it meant to everyone, we all celebrated and it was a great day - hopefully the first of many.<P>There was a bit of pressure on before Saturday so it was great to get the win. We hadn't won for&nbsp&#59;a while and there was a buzz in the dressing room afterwards - you could sense the relief. <P>We took that into Liverpool and went up there fully believing we could get a result. We created a few chances but you are always going to be under pressure at&nbsp&#59;Anfield. I'm told it's&nbsp&#59;our first point up there since 1996 and that shows we're doing everything right at the moment. That win last week kick-started&nbsp&#59;us and we expected to get something at&nbsp&#59;Liverpool. That's our frame of mind at the moment. <IMG src="/media/images/decorative/photos/cpix/davies1.jpg" align=left border=1 DESIGNTIMEURL="/photos/cpix/davies1.jpg"> <P>We all feel the crowd is fully behind us again and we know&nbsp&#59;that when we&nbsp&#59;go out there against Fulham they'll be supporting us all the way. We now have to be more consistent. <P>I've scored a few goals&nbsp&#59;against Fulham and it would be great for me to get off the&nbsp&#59;mark for the season against them on Saturday. It's not weighing on my mind massively, we're only three games into the season, but it would after five or six. I've been threatening a bit, so hopefully it will fall into place on Saturday. <P><STRONG>TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE v FULHAM - <A href="">CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS</A></STRONG><P>I don't know Chris Coleman that well because soon after I got&nbsp&#59;&nbsp&#59;into the Welsh squad&nbsp&#59;for the first time&nbsp&#59;he had his terrible car accident. <P>He's been with us a few times though and he's a great character, a funny bloke and one all the Welsh lads love. He was in the first squad I was in and he was very friendly, easy to get on with and he was one of the first players I talked to at length. <P>Talking about Wales, obviously we've a huge game against Italy next week. It's something that's excited me ever since they announced they were holding the game in the San Siro. <P>It will be&nbsp&#59;a massive occasion for everyone. I'm not thinking about it at the&nbsp&#59;moment though because in this game you can only think about the next match. That is Fulham on Saturday and I'll be giving everything to make sure we get another three points. <P><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 24pt&#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> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt"><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 24pt&#59; FONT-FAMILY: 'Monotype Corsiva'&#59; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">Simon</SPAN> <DIV>&nbsp&#59;</DIV><DIV><P><STRONG>SIMON IS 10/1 TO SCORE FIRST AGAINST FULHAM WITH LADBROKES.COM - </STRONG><A href=""><STRONG>CLICK HERE FOR MORE</STRONG></A><P><BR>&nbsp&#59;</DIV>
