Poyet's Spur-fect moment

Posted on 20 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).

Gus Poyet didn't have to think too long before naming his best moment in a Spurs shirt.

Turn your mind back to approximately 5.50pm on November 17, 2001 and a volley that skipped past Richard Wright in the Arsenal goal to rescue a deserved point against the old enemy - the Lane erupted.

"It is my best moment at Spurs, definitely," recalled Gus with a smile on his face at Spurs Lodge. "It was difficult to be calm again after that goal, to be normal again for hours after. So many things were running through my mind.

"To tell everyone how I felt after that goal - and I've told a few people this already - I was driving home two hours later and I was still celebrating.

"There were so many things still going on inside. It was too much.

"Even though it was only for a point, it was the way it happened and that we deserved perhaps even more.

"I don't lie, it was probably one of the top three reactions I have ever seen in a stadium.

"It was magnificent, unforgettable and for me, something that will always be there."
