Glenn: We'll turn corner

Posted on 28 December 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 Hoddle is convinced we will turn the corner of what he describes as 'a little blip' of two successive defeats.

Last weekend's home defeat at the hands of Ipswich Town was followed by the Boxing Day disappointment of losing at Southampton.

It's only the second time this season we've lost successive games and those defeats, against Liverpool and Manchester United in September, were followed by a run of one loss in nine.

The boss revealed that the worst thing was losing games he felt we could win.

"It has been disappointing," said Glenn. "You can't hide from the facts and the facts are that we've lost games that I felt we were capable of winning.

"There is a concern but not a worry. You only really start to worry if it goes on for a prolonged period of time but I don't think it will.

"I think we will turn the corner of this little blip. Every club has had a blip this season.

"We've lost up at Leeds and Liverpool where not a lot needed to be said, the performances were excellent and it could have gone either way.

"We made individual errors but that's the way it goes sometimes.

"At Charlton, Ipswich and Southampton they were teams where we haven't played at our best and if we had, I think we'd have won the games.

"That's the disappointment. You can't cheat the league table - we should be higher than we are but we're not. It just proves there is a lot of hard work to be done.

"It's how you respond and in the past we've responded well. We have to make sure that happens again and that can only happen with us talking about things, working on things and improving."
