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).

I'M PLEASED to say I've trained with the reserves this week and I've been outside for about a week now, so I'm back into it, had no reaction so far and trying to get fit. The shin&nbsp&#59;still aches a little&nbsp&#59;but the pain has gone. It's about looking after it, so I'm being careful but pushing on now. <P>THE lads have been disappointed with the last couple of games. Results haven't gone the way we wanted. We've eight games left and if we win five of them, for example, we'll push right up there. We've got to get back on the winning trail and it's a big game on Saturday.<P><DIV align=center><IMG src="/media/images/decorative/photos/diggersdiary.gif" width=360 DESIGNTIMEURL="/photos/diggersdiary.gif"></DIV><P><P>CHELSEA have done well. It's difficult to get all those players together and gel as a unit straight away but they are still in there with a shout for the title and if they finish above Manchester United it will be a great season for them. They are a quality team full of quality players but we know if we play to our capabilities we'll have a chance. <P>I THOUGHT Wales did superbly to win in Hungary this week. I watched the game on television and we went&nbsp&#59;behind to a dodgy penalty but dug in and managed to come back and win 2-1. We had a lot of players out but we've a strong squad now and players who can come in and do a job. I hate missing international matches and&nbsp&#59;with a big qualifying campaign coming up, I want to be fit, playing games and staking a claim again. <P>I DIDN'T see the England game but I have seen brief highlights and it looks like Jermain Defoe has done his chances no harm. From what I saw he looked sharp and didn't look out of place at all. Everyone at the club knows how good he is and he will score goals whatever level he plays at. <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<o:p></o:p></SPAN></B> <P>&nbsp&#59;</P>
