November 26: Blowing bubbles

Posted on 27 November 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).

I have to start with the win against West Ham. If someone said to you beforehand that you would go there and win then you would take those points straight away, perfect.

If you play like that and deserve to win then it is a great performance from the whole team. We deserved to win and we could have scored more.

We have now won three away games and it gives everyone a much better feeling if you can go to away games and believe in our performance and team spirit that we can win. You can see that.

We can wait in a game because we know we will create chances and we are so strong in the defence as a team at the moment we can wait and score later.

For me, it is nice to know that we have already won three times away. We scored after 50 minutes, soaked up a litte pressure and then tried to score more.

I hope that Gus is fit for Monday. It was a bad contact with Sinclair and you could see straight away that he was completely gone. You have to be careful with the head, it can be dangerous.

The manager was right when he said this at the start of the season that Gus is a player who plays with his head up. He is so dangerous. He creates chances and has scored regularly. He can also play one, two-touch when he has to. He is a very important player now.

Everyone knows about his character. He is funny, talking to everyone, never angry, positive and I think important for the team spirit. If you are a little down Gus is there and your smile will come back.

We now go to Fulham for the Worthington Cup. I try not to think about when we lost there two years ago. On that night we didn't see the ball in the first half and we were 2-0 down at half-time.

I'm sure that will not happen again. It will be a good game. Both teams like to play football both also both teams can defend.

We will need a very good performance to beat them away. For me, they will not be involved in the relegation zone this season, always 11th, 12th or higher.

I'm sure people will talk about the last time but this is a completely different team and Fulham have changed as well. It's only the memory you have when you look back.

We won't think about it now though. We will only think of this game. If we keep our performances going it will not be easy to beat us.
