Gus: The big one

Posted on 27 January 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).

Gus Poyet has declared Wednesday night's belter against Newcastle United as 'the biggest game of the season'.

We're currently seventh in the battle for European qualification with Newcastle third, seven points ahead of us having beaten Bolton last week.

"This is a key game," said Gus. "I know we always say the next one is the most important but this is the biggest game of the season, for sure.

"We are on a good run, we're at home, it's one of the teams in front of us and we have to win.

"It will be difficult because away from home, it is difficult to mark Newcastle because when you go forward, Bellamy has such pace and he can capitalise on the space.

"But it's at White Hart Lane, we're are home, we need the points and we will be ready for that game.

"It's a game to be clever, patient, you cannot give a goal away because if you lose an early goal you have to chase the game and then leave the space and that's the best thing for Newcastle. We have to be well organised, clever and try to go in front."
