'More to come'

Posted on 7 December 2001  - 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).

Glenn Hoddle is determined to build on the foundations laid so far this season and has insisted: "There is more to come."

We are currently sitting pretty in fifth in the Premiership, are in the quarter-finals of the Worthington Cup and on a run of just one defeat in our last nine games.

But Glenn has made it clear that it means nothing to be fifth at this stage and his revival of the club has so far 'achieved nothing'.

He said: "Our objective is to play even better and take it further on from here. If we do that it will defintely mean we're getting more consistent.

"That is a tough thing in this league especially this season, there are some very difficult matches.

"It's about maintaining the consistent levels that we've found at this moment in time.

"What I would say is that there is more to come. We haven't achieved anything and we won't have achieved anything until we look back in five years time - that is the time to look at what we've achieved.

"I've come here to put the club back where it should be and the hunger I've got, I know the players have got. The first thing was to get that across and they've showed that.

"But it means nothing to be where we are at this stage of the season.

"It means a lot to the supporters the way we're playing, I'm not denying that, but it doesn't mean anything to be fifth.

"There's a lot of hard graft and there is a long way to go - we've only played 15 games.

"Our objective is Europe this season and at this moment in time, we're nothing more than maybe on course. There is a lot of football to be played."

Glenn registered his delight that the fans were enjoying their football again. "I'm pleased about that," he said. "It's always been a major principle at this club.

"I'm pleased as manager and I know the players are pleased that we are managing to play well and get results.

"We've played well and lost as well this season. We have to turn those performances into wins, certainly against the top five teams.

"Another good sign is that we've been in third gear at times, over at Fulham, West Ham, and we won both of them. That is a very good sign. You can't deny the positives are there."
