Glenn: Decisions hurt us

Posted on 13 April 2003  - 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).

Glenn Hoddle lamented the fact that key decisions went against us against Leeds - but was full of praise for the performance of the team.

Kasey Keller was adjudged to have impeded the run of Harry Kewell into the penalty area on 75 minutes and referee Rob Styles pointed to the spot. Then, in the final seconds, Simon Davies appeared to be fouled by Lucas Radebe but, this time, the official decided against an award.

"Kasey says he got to the ball first but, from where I was on the bench, he may have held him off just after he's taken the ball - that is what the referee has seen," commented Glenn afterwards.


"These decisions have gone against us, Simon Davies was fouled at the end and it could have been a penalty. The decisions have hurt us, big time."

Despite his disappointment over missing out on the three points, Glenn was happy with the display of the team.

"Performance-wise I thought we played well. I thought we passed the ball after the game settled down, took our chances and looked a threat.

"You come away feeling we might have had a win here.

"It was a difficult day to come here anyway. Three months ago at 2-1 up we would have gone on and won - the mental state of Leeds at that stage would have been a little bit fragile.

"Peter's come in, they've had a 6-1 win and this was his first home game. It made it a difficult time to come here, but I felt we equipped ourselves very well today. We're just disappointed not to get the three points."
