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).

Pat Holland said he's delighted to have a chance to banish the weekend's disappointments against Arsenal.

The lads suffered a 7-1 defeat after going down to 10 men after just 10 minutes.

However, they were the better side in the first half and with Andy Barcham causing all sorts of problems down the right flank, Claude Seanla levelled Arsenal's opening goal to make it 1-1 just before the break.

Unfortunately, Arsenal forged again right on half-time and then took advantage of our tiring legs in the second half.

Coach Pat reflected: "It was a tired side but we've had a fantastic season and I'm just looking forward to the final game against Chelsea

"We're fortunate we've got that game left. The boys were down and rightly so but you have to look at lots of factors.

"People in the game will understand it because everyone goes through the same thing.

"They were fantastic in the first half, to think they played 35 minutes with 10 men and were the better side, you have to give them credit. It's just a shame the legs went in the second half."
