Home sweet home

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).

George Graham is looking forward to returning to Fortress White Hart Lane on Tuesday night.

Our manager admits our win-less away form remains a puzzle — not least when our home record reads played 10, won seven, drawn three, lost none.

We have been as good at home in the Premiership as we were poor in Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at Ipswich Town and George aims to extend that home sequence when Newcastle United arrive at the Lane.

He said: “Our away form has been the puzzle of the season for me. I can’t put my finger on it.

“We’ve been nice and bright at home all season apart from the Worthington Cup tie against Birmingham, but in the Premiership we’ve been excellent.

“Even the last two home games which we’ve drawn we dominated against Middlesbrough and had a very exciting game against Arsenal when they equalised in the last minute.

“So where I’m pleased with our home form the away form remains a puzzle.

“Ipswich was disappointing but we have to keep learning and learning, stay positive and think we are at home and that we want to keep our home form going. There is no reason why we shouldn’t.”
