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).

The performance against Southampton on Saturday is what I want more of. I chose Fredi Kanoute start and I think he was one of our best players - then Robbie Keane came on and he showed us what he can do after a couple of minutes.

I delighted that we have three good strikers at this club and, maybe in the future, we can bring through some young ones too. I don't want only to talk about Fredi because Robbie is one of the best strikers around. It is not an easy decision to leave him on the bench, but the team is the most important thing. I wanted to keep Michael Brown in his position and I think it paid off.

We had terrific players out there and they have showed that in the last three of four weeks, I think. It was very positive, Anthony Gardner came in alongside Ledley and did very well.

We have had eight clean sheets this season and are doing well. We can build on this and it is encouraging that we scored five goals. We shouldn't forget though that Paul Robinson made a couple of very good saves at the right time for us.

People ask whether we can keep hold of Jermain Defoe. He is happy at our club and we can go places with him as he is one of the best strikers in England. We are strong so why shouldn't he be here to take us up in the league?

We are showing good character and looking to improve all the time.
