Lads pass character test

Posted on 13 October 2001  - 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).

Glenn Hoddle says the character of his side is building all the time.

The boss insisted the players answered a lot of questions by beating Tranmere Rovers so convincingly in the Worthington Cup after the devastating defeat against Manchester United.

Now he wants to build on that result with a victory when we return to Premiership action against Derby County on Monday night.

“Character is something we’re building,” Glenn pointed out. “I don’t think we’ve mastered it yet. You never master anything in football, that’s the beauty of the game.

“There were question marks about our character from people before we went up to Tranmere. That is a very hard place to play football and I can vouch for that from last season.

“It was a wonderful team performance from Sully through to Teddy and Les up front. The substitutes contributed as well.

“That’s how it’s going to be. It’s a squad situation and some of the players came in and did a good job. We got the four goals, a clean sheet and overall it was a good night.

“It was a good win because of what happened against United as well. That was a crushing blow for everyone involved in the club.

“To play so well in the first half and then to see what happened in the second half. We’ve learned a lot of lessons from that.”
