Glenn's looking up

Posted on 29 October 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 underlined his long-term ambitions by admitting: "Seventh place is no good to me now."

Saturday's victory against Middlesbrough lifted us up to seventh spot in the Premiership and within touching distance of current leaders Aston Villa.

But Glenn insisted: "We got to be in a better position come May, simple as that.

"Seventh on October the 27th is no good to me. It what we do and what we achieve at the end of the season that matters. That's the way we want to be going forward week in, week out."

The boss certainly viewed the 2-1 win against stubborn Boro as a step forward as we fought from a goal down to take the points against a team happy to defend in numbers.

He added: "We had to defend a little against Newcastle after playing some smashing football and turning the game around here in front of our own fans, which sometimes is the hardest thing to do when you're 1-0 down, shows character.

"We're getting there. You've never mastered this game and the important thing is to improve and we're slowly getting there. The foundations are being laid."
