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).

We needed the result against Middlesbrough on Sunday and now we move on again. We played well in the second half and it is not always easy to play against ten men.

We could have had four or five goals, but it was a new situation for us and I understand that. I thought they played a bit better than us in the first part of the game.

You could see they were a settled side, without creating a lot of chances. I don't think we played with a lot of confidence at first, but you can't expect that with the defeats we've had.

The only problem is we should have scored more goals - at least two more.

The sending off followed what I felt was a cynical tackle, but it was a turning point in the game. We had a spare man and I was very pleased with the way we used it and took advantage.

I was very pleased with Reto Ziegler, I think he was a big surprise again and played well. Ledley King I thought was magestic, he uses his left and right foot and is improving with every game.

You are always pleased after a win.
