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).

I THOUGHT before Sunday's FA Cup tie against Forest that it could be a difficult game, especially after what happened at Charlton. Chris Hughton went there to watch and said Leicester were the better team. You think 'what is happening here in England?' because Charlton is normally a very good side and Sheffield United could have won at Arsenal as well.

In the first half Forest played a very rigid system and it was difficult for us to open them up, although we still had some chances. I think our final ball was a bit below par on the day.

I'm not too disappointed because we can go over there and put things straight and that's important. In the last five minutes they broke with the lad Commons, who did well, and they could have scored again. You can't say Forest played unbelievable football but you have to break them down. We had five or six chances and if you don't put them away, you have to go for a replay.

I feel the disappointment from the fans. We worked hard and with the players we have we should beat them but hopefully we can put that right in the near future.
