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).

When I watched the 'goal' go in against Manchester United on Tuesday night I thought it was maybe an inch or so over the line. When I saw it after the game I realised it was two feet or something over the line.

It is a pity, we could have had three points and at the end of the year it can make a difference. We only have one and I can live with that, before the game if you had told me this I would have been happy.

Pedro Mendes is a man with vision and did well to get a shot in from such distance. He also tried it in the first half, but it went over the bar. With the second the keeper should have caught it easily but made a mistake and it was a goal - what else can I say?

I am very pleased with the team, the only thing is we couldn't create a lot as we only had Robbie Keane up front. We had to fight like lions to get a clean sheet and you saw Reto Ziegler have an amazing second half, but he couldn't get the final ball just right in the last 30 yards of the pitch.

We had a very young side and I am very proud of them.
