Glenn's frustration game

Posted on 20 January 2002  - 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).

A frustrated Glenn Hoddle was left in no doubts that we deserved maximum points against Everton on Saturday.

We were certainly in charge in terms of possession but a dogged Everton defence, two fine Steve Simonsen saves and David Weir's stunning volley combined to make sure Walter Smith's men left the Lane with a point.

Injury to Les Ferdinand, who departed at half-time with concussion after heading his 14th goal of the season, only added concern to the manager's disappointment.

"It was a frustrating afternoon," Glenn admitted. "Walter (Smith) will be pleased in Everton's circumstances, they defended well, played very deep and we found it very frustrating.

"We had enough possession and felt we should have won the game but it didn't happen.

"The difference is scraping the top of the bar right at the death or it hitting the bottom of the bar, it goes in and we're setting here talking about another good win. Overall we deserved it.

"It was disappointing that we didn't win but there was nothing wrong with the performance and we can go into the next game with a lot of belief."
