Jamie praise for Lane crowd

Posted on 26 April 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).

Jamie Redknapp described the atmosphere inside White Hart Lane on Sunday as up there and above anything he has experienced before.

The Lane was bouncing before, during and after the game as the fans cranked up the volume and helped the team launch the amazing second half recovery against Arsenal.

Jamie insists the noise factor and support compares with anything he came across during his spell with former club Liverpool and their local encounters.

"The fans were unbelieveable," stated Jamie after the game. "I've played in some matches before for Liverpool against Everton and Manchester United but, blimey, that was incredible.

"I enjoyed it and it drove us on here - it really did."

The skipper feels the team, too, deserve some credit for the character shown in fighting back from a two-goal deficit at the break.

"Great, absolutely fantastic, I'm so proud of the performance really. We could have completely under after going 2-0 down.

"I thought in the second half we got after them and made it difficult - It was a really good performance.

"We've taken a lot of stick lately, but we showed what we can do."

Jamie netted our first goal with a sweetly stuck shot just after the hour mark and there was no doubt in his mind that his effort would find the back of Jens Lehmann's net.

"To be honest, I struck it so well, I knew it was in straight away."
