+J on the Robbo celebration!

Posted on 30 December 2004  - 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).

Jermaine Defoe told Spurs Lodge why he ran the length of the field to celebrate with Paul Robinson after his cracker against Crystal Palace.

The striker explained: "Robbo said to me at half-time 'keep going J, you'll get a goal' and he started laughing. I asked him why he was laughing and he said 'make sure when you score you come running down to me' and I told him if I had the energy, I would. He's a great mate, so I did!"

Unfortunately, Jermain's 10th league goal and 15th in all competitions was wiped out by Andy Johnson's equaliser in the 1-1 draw.

He added: "We managed to score first and went after the second goal but it just didn't happen for us. As I said, we're all disappointed, but I thought Palace did well and at the end of the day, we didn't lose the game. Perhaps it was a fair result overall."
