Doc on what's up

Posted on 24 February 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).

Gary Doherty held his hands up to his mistakes as the lads examined the Leicester game in a team meeting yesterday.

The big defender was at fault for Leicester's first and last goals as the Foxes came from 3-1 down to lead 4-3 before Jermain Defoe's last-gasp equaliser.

Gary revealed: "We had a meeting just to highlight our problem at the moment - individual errors.

"I was at fault for two against Leicester and a couple of the other lads held their hands up and said they were at fault for the other goals.

"We singled out where we made mistakes and we're making individual errors all over the park.

"The back four will get highlighted, particularly the two centre-backs, but the gaffer also highlighted that other players were at fault for different goals

"We've got to take on the responsibility of conceding too many goals and we've got to get through it by working hard on the training ground.

"I think once we eradicate that from our game then we have the possibility of being a very good team.

"We also highlighted the high points in that our run has been quite good, we're only second to Arsenal since the turn of the year in the form guide with 16 points from 21 available. It's not all doom and gloom.

"We are all disappointed because I think we could have gone seventh but six or seven games ago we were third from bottom, so things are on the up."

Doc gave his reaction first to our mobile phone service spurs (((on!)))
