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).

SATURDAY'S game against Fulham was very similar to the FA Cup tie against Forest last week - we had lots of possession but couldn't create a lot and score the goals to show for it.

They had Diop as a holding player in front of his back four and he gave us a bit of a problem. You have to make a decision. Perhaps you have to bring a striker off and put another midfielder on but I didn't want to do that because we have four terrific strikers and you hope you will eventually punish them.

It was a bit of a shame because Defoe and Mido didn't get too many crosses but then again, we had two great strikers on the bench and I told Kanoute before he went on 'you have to make the difference' and he did.

Normally he doesn't take free-kicks and we might get upset when other players take free-kicks, but I was happy with it. He took a gamble and I like that, it shows mental strength.

Having four strikers paid off and it's like a dream to have two strikers come off the bench and both score.
