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 was a relieved man following our late double strike against his former club Southampton, revealing that he had his doubts over whether a first three point haul of the season would be registered on the League table.

A tricky day at the office finally yielded a full reward after two late goals from Christian Ziege and Simon Davies lifted any lingering tension from the White Hart Lane atmosphere.

Glenn was understandably delighted to secure a first win at the fourth time of asking.

“Very much so, you felt, possibly, that it wasn’t going to be our day after the chances we had in the first half,” he commented.

“We kept plugging away at it and overall I felt we were worthy winners.”

Glenn went on to reveal that a little bit of half time tinkering added a solidity to the back line in the second half, reducing the threat of the Southampton attack.

“We tightened the belt in bit in the second half, I felt we were a little bit too loose defensively in the first half, although we looked as if we were going to score.

“Once we did that, the balance of our game became just right and we still created and had good finishes from Christian and Simon.

“All in all, it was a good day for us.

“There’s room for improvement, of course there is, there always is. There were moments today when I really felt we passed the ball exquisitely. They were moments - we’ve got to get that more consistently.

“There is a lot work ahead of us, but it’s good to get a win.”
