October 22: Wunderbar!

Posted on 22 October 2002  - 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).

It has been a fantastic week for the club. First the Tribute match with so many great Spurs players and then taking the three points and going into third in the table against Bolton.

Before the game everyone said this is a game we had to win against Bolton but we all knew it would be a difficult game. In the end I thought we played well and deserved the win.

Remember the game at Highbury a few weeks ago. It was 1-1, last minute, and Kanu scored the winner. If you go 1-0 down it is very difficult but I think we now have the class to score all the time.

We created chances, look to go forward and tried a lot of different things to break them down. That is why we were able to do that.

I've now played with Robbie Keane three times and I have to say he is a wonderful, wonderful player.

I think the important goal for him was at Blackburn. From that moment I was sure he will score goals and create chances because he is so fast with the ball.

Give it to his feet and he will do something. He is a special striker and it is nice to see him at Tottenham.

It's so far, so good, touch wood, since I came back. I've no problems. The knee is perfect and now I have to take care of the muscles.

I have to say Glenn Hoddle and John Gorman have helped me a lot. I have asked them for a little more rest, not to go home, put my feet up and watch television, but sometimes to just have a jog and do my own exercises and they let me do it.

I will do that again this week to be ready for Liverpool and it is wonderful to know that they help when you come back. I will certainly give it back on match days. I need a little bit of a different programme and everyone has helped me.

I said before it would be nice to go to Anfield with four Germans on the pitch. Well Christian Ziege cannot play but Didi Hamann will play and hopefully Markus, he was on the bench the other day, three Germans on the pitch and it is a big game now, first against third, what a game! I can't wait for it.

Look out for more from Steffen this week...
