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).

Normally when you play away from home you should aim to keep a clean sheet and we didn't of that against Bolton on Tuesday. Jermain scored for us and there shouldn't have been a problem. Maybe a lack of experience then cost us, refereeing decisions also helped them I think and it was harsh on us.

It wasn't to be. It was a bad result for us and we should have had a draw because we coped with their style of play. We made the substitution and scored and I think we would have been okay with 11 players. I couldn't change things and bring Mido on so that was a disappointment.

Luck has been going against us with decisions. The Manchester United one, then the penalty against Chelsea with Ledley King - maybe you win some and lose some. We need to win some soon. We worked hard, showed a lot of character but it was a disappointing result for us.

We had chances even with ten men and Stephen Kelly had two possibilities. He is a young player with little experience and should have kept a cool head, but I was pleased with him all the same. I think we missed Naybet with his experience, but it is not an excuse - we have good young players.

I was very pleased with Simon Davies because he looked a bit like his old self. There were some positive things but it has not been going our way in the last three or four weeks. If we get a couple of wins confidence will improve.
