Jacques 'a little<br>disappointed'

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).

Jacques Santini admitted to 'a little disappointment' that our efforts against Norwich City went unrewarded.

Head Coach Jacques pinpointed City goalkeeper Robert Green's contribution as the main reason why Sunday's clash ended goalless at the Lane.

Green produced a string of fine saves to keep out Jermain Defoe and notably Thimothee Atouba but it wasn't one-traffic - Paul Robinson also saved twice from Darren Huckerby while Ledley King somehow blocked Huckerby's goalbound effort after he'd skipped around Robinson.

Jacques reflected: "It is possibly two points dropped but when Huckerby went around Paul Robinson it was possible for Norwich to score and therefore for us to lose the game.

"When a lot of international players are tired after 70, 75 minutes it is also possible to lose the game.

"At the end of the championship we might see it as a point won but I am a little disappointed because the effort of my players wasn't compensated.

"My team had a good game. We have seven or eight good chances to score but Green was the man-of-the-match.

"When we won our last game against Birmingham we only had one or two chances to score whereas this time we had six, seven, eight chances. It was a good performance by Green. He made four or five international saves.

"So overall I am a little disappointed but only with the result."
