Opportunity knocks

Posted on 22 April 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).

Clive Allen views Sunday's clash with Arsenal as an opportunity to put a smile back on the faces of everyone at Spurs.

The legendary Lane striker - famed for his 49 goals in 1986-87 - is now back at the club as reserve team coach.

Of course, he still takes his place as one of the experts on ITV and is in little doubt our visitors deserve to take the Premiership title.

His message though is 'not at our place'. "There is always an edge to the game and it's always a massive game, even more so this weekend," he said.

"Arsenal are the best team we've seen this season and I think they deserve to win the title but obviously no-one wants them to do it against us.

"We have our own predicament and I think at this stage of the season anyone who plays Arsenal would love to beat them. All credit to them, but it's an opportunity for us.

"Arsenal and Tottenham games will always be close regardless of form, regardless of how the season is panning out.

"I'm sure that will be the same on Sunday. I think it will be a close game, I hope it is and I would love to see us come through and win because, without doubt, that would be just what we need for the end of our season.

"It would be great for us to finish in a big way and that would be a win against Arsenal."
