Hod's notes

Posted on 24 July 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).

Welcome to my first notes for this new, exciting Members Website.

As you all know, pre-season is well under way and as you read these notes, we should have landed in South Africa for a tour and two friendlies against Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs.

We're expecting tough games - just what we want out there.

The friendlies have gone well so far with wins against Stevenage Borough, Wycombe, Oxford and Norwich City just before we flew out.

I thought we looked very, very good at Carrow Road. We were We were totally in control of the game, kept a clean sheet and it was a good run out for the boys.

We scored some excellent goals as well and that performance was with Christian Ziege, Ledley King, Neil Sullivan and Dean Richards all out.

Norwich are a good side, a neat footballing side and they would be a test for anyone here. It was a good run out but we have to remember it's only pre-season.

It's early days at the moment but I've been delighted with out two new signings Helder Postiga and Bobby Zamora.

As I said, it's only pre-season and those two young men have to adjust to the Premiership, so we can't get carried away.

Bobby has only been with us for a few days, we haven't had a lot of chance to work with him on the training pitch but, as I thought he would, he gives us something else.

He has great movement, both Helder and Bobby have that, they are sharp, eager, young and I think they will be great acquisitions for the club both in the short and long-term.

Anyway, Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs are next for us in a busy schedule in South Africa.
