Glenn: We deserved to win

Posted on 18 November 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).

Glenn says the late, late leveller against Arsenal felt like a winner, but is convinced that we deserved to win the highly charged encounter.

On clear chances created and balance of play Glenn certainly has a point, one backed up by Arsenal chief Arsene Wenger who conceded that we deserved at least a draw.

Wenger, in fact, condemned his own side for sqandering possession when in the lead, saying that his attackers should have headed for the corners at such a late stage instead of seeking to double the advantage.

"They should be thanking us," quipped the disappointed Gunners boss after witnessing his team lose their lead in the final minute of stoppage time.

In Glenn's mind it was justice done when Gus volleyed past Richard Wright to send White Hart Lane into raptures.

"Without a doubt, over 90 minutes I thought we were the better side and deserved to win," reflected Glenn. "Nobody will convince me of anything else.

"The goal felt like a winner at that late stage. It was added time, there was a bit of time wasting, but the referee, to be fair to him, put his watch up and said he was going to add on time and I think that's what the difference was for us.

"It was a terrific finish from Gus and it was only what we deserved."
