Mixed memories of Goodison

Posted on 30 December 2004  - 12:00

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).

Our victory over Everton back in October was memorable for three Spurs players - although one can't remember it at all!

Noe Pamarot headed home the winner for his first and so far only goal in a Spurs shirt, Reto Ziegler made his full debut in the Barclays Premiership and Erik Edman suffered a nasty head knock that subsequently ruled him out for six weeks.

Everton's arrival at the Lane on New Year's Day will trigger good memories for both Noe and Reto - but not for Erik.

"To be honest, I have difficulty remembering that game!" joked Erik. "But we all know they are a strong team, Gravesen is a key player for them in central midfield and they are fighting for each other.

"They played really well against us and everyone in that team knows his role, knows what to do, they play for each other and that means you can achieve things.

"We are also a good team and we play at home, so we have to be confident."

Noe smiles at the memory of his bullet header from Robbie Keane's corner to secure the win at Goodison Park.

The French defender also cleared off the line in what was another fine defensive effort away from home under pressure from the home side.

Noe recalled: "It was my first goal and it was all very quick. I saw the ball, jumped and headed it and it went in. I was really happy for the team because we wanted that win badly.

"I think now they are a different team, they have played very well since then and it will be a hard game."

Swiss left-sider Reto came on for Jermain Defoe with 11 minutes left of that clash.

"Everton was my first game, we won 1-0 and it was a dream for me to make my debut in the Premier League," recalled the youngster.

"It was a couple of months ago and the group is now compact, we know each other better and I think it will be a good game.

"Everton are a good team but we are also good, we are at home and it's a good game for us."
