Glenn: We made it too easy for them

Posted on 14 September 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 conceded that we made it 'too easy' for Chelsea in Saturday's Premiership defeat at Stamford Bridge.

Two goals in as many minutes from Frank Lampard and Adrian Mutu cancelled out Fredi Kanoute's opener in the first half, Mutu's second made it 3-1 with 20 minutes left, Kanoute struck again to give us late hope at 3-2 before Jimmy Hasselbaink tapped home the clincher.

"I felt the four goals were poor defensively," said Glenn. "To allow your goalkeeper to have three one-on-ones in any game of football is poor defending.

"We made individual errors, wrong decisions and let them get behind us too easily.

"We've given a stupid fourth goal away but at 3-2 you never know, we might have got a draw out of it.

"Unless we improve it won't matter how much good football we play, something we certainly did in the first 35 minutes, because we will always be on the back foot.

"The goals they scored were too easy and that's something we must improve on if we want to achieve anything. But there were a lot of positives out there as well, not all negatives."
