John counts the cost

Posted on 23 April 2002  - 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).

John Gorman looked back at Saturday's draw at Bolton and sighed: "That just about sums up the season."

Four points have slipped away in our last two games against West Ham and Bolton when we could, arguably should, have racked up two wins.

Hammers grabbed a point when Ian Pearce smashed home a wonder goal in the last minute and we had the chances to put Saturday's encounter beyond Bolton before a defensive slip let them in for an equaliser.

Assistant boss John reflected: "So many games have been in a similar vein especially at crucial times when we've been on top and could have finished teams off.

"The positive thing is that we've got ourselves in the positions, especially away from home, but we've not capitalised.

"It's annoying for us and frustrating again on Saturday because that was another three points that could have been ours."

Boss Glenn Hoddle said it was something we had to cut out next season.

"It's just about being clinical and that lads know that," agreed John. "We've played well in these games. We've played great football and created chances.

"It's been annoying in the last two games. West Ham, we're two minutes away from the three points and Ian Pearce comes out with that fantastic strike and on Saturday, Bolton score a scrappy goal within a minute of us having a great chance of going 2-0 up. That sums up our season."
