Jermain's loved it

Posted on 11 May 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).

Jermain Defoe says it's been a 'mad few months' since he arrived at the club - but he's loved every minute of it.

The livewire striker made a storming start to his Spurs career after joining us from West Ham on transfer deadline day in January.

A goal on his debut against Leicester City was followed by four in his first three games as we put together a run of five wins in seven matches to move from 18th to 10th in the Premiership.

Jermain then went seven games without a goal and we only found the net via an Andy O'Brien own goal in six games.

He returned to the scoresheet in the draw against Manchester City and again on Saturday, a spectacular first half strike a worthy winner against Blackburn Rovers.

"I was delighted to score," said Jermain. "I thoroughly enjoyed that goal, great ball from Ledley and a win in the last home game of the season. We all knew how important it was for the fans."

Throw in a fine full debut for England in the friendly against Sweden in March and calls for a place in the Euro 2004 squad and you can see how Jermain's world has been a mad one of late.

"It's been a mad few months," he pondered. "I signed right at the last minute on deadline day and it's gone from there.

"But I've enjoyed every minute to be honest. I managed to score on my debut and that's always special. It helps you relax and you are not thinking 'I need to score' in the next game.

"It's been tough at times but we're all looking forward to next season."
