George's away day delight

Posted on 11 February 2001  - 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).

A delighted George Graham had nothing but praise for the lads after our first away win of the season in the Premiership at Manchester City. <P class=MsoNormal>Sergei Rebrov beat Steve Howey and Nicky Weaver to Oyvind Leonhardsen&rsquo&#59;s superb pass to poke home the winner a minute from time. <P class=MsoNormal>It was a real smash and grab raid after City created the better chances and had what looked a perfectly good goal from Darren Huckerby ruled out. <P class=MsoNormal>But we defended superbly again for our fifth successive clean sheet and even more satisfying, just as the comments about 0-0 draws were ready to kick in again, we grabbed that late winner. <P class=MsoNormal>The result made it eight games unbeaten this year and George enthused: &ldquo&#59;I'm very happy. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;It's been a long time coming, three points away, and it's been a great week for the club and the supporters with two away wins when we&rsquo&#59;ve found it very difficult to win away from home. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;The game in the week was a fantastic cup tie, coming back from two goals down, and I thought that might drain us a bit. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;I thought we looked a bit jaded at times but there's a great team spirit among the boys. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;In the second half City threw everything at us and with a little bit of luck they could have scored one or two goals. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;But they didn't, we took advantage of that and finished the game with another clean sheet and a goal. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;So I'm pleased for the club and the supporters, and most importantly the players. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;The results we've achieved in this eight-match run, I think have been fantastic with the injuries we've had.&rdquo&#59; <P class=MsoNormal><I>Listen to George's post-match press conference in full by clicking <A href="">here</A> <P class=MsoNormal>By Paul Miles at Maine Road</I> <P class=MsoNormal> <P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p> <P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<o:p></o:p>
