Glenn left scratching his head

Posted on 31 August 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 was left stunned after our performance in Saturday's defeat against Fulham at the Lane.

As we struggled to find our fine form of the last week, Fulham produced a classic away display, breaking with style to win 3-0 with Barry Hayles (2) and Luis Boa Morte on target.

All in all it was a huge low after the highs of Leeds and Liverpool. "Without a doubt," agreed Glenn. "But I always felt it was going to be difficult.

"We'd had two hard games and Fulham had a rest for a period but that's not an excuse, they deserved their win.

"They were better than us all around the pitch, sharper, quicker to the ball, quicker to the second ball and individually, one on one, they were better than us.

"My biggest concern is the way we lost the goals. They could have been averted.

"If you are not playing so well you can always get in the game but we didn't, it was a poor performance and very disappointing.

"To be honest, I couldn't see where that was coming from.

"Our performances this season have been excellent even at Birmingham, where I thought our performance was right and we were close to winning it but got nothing, Leeds was excellent, Liverpool a great defensive display and lots of good football and solidness, I couldn't see that one coming."
