Kasey: No luck

Posted on 8 January 2003  - 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).

Kasey Keller says the first goal in Saturday's FA Cup loss at Southampton typified our luck over the festive period.

Our American number one insists he had James Beattie's free-kick covered until it spat up off the surface at St Mary's, bounced free and was tucked away by Michael Svensson. The rest, as they say, is history.

"It's always a shame when something like that happens," reflected Kasey.

"I had that ball all the way but all of a sudden it kicks up, hits me in the face and they are 1-0 up.

"That was typical of Christmas. Even in the home game against Charlton, the first goal deflects to Jason Euell and the second came after I saved from him but the ball hit Chris Perry and bounced back to him.

"I also thought we played well against both Newcastle and Southampton and deserved more, certainly more than nothing from either game.

"We've had good performances and not picked anything up but then again, we didn't play too well against West Brom and won comfortably. Things like that happen.

"Southampton was tough for everyone. We were flat and couldn't get going. But everyone is determined to turn it around."
