Raving about Dave

Posted on 15 January 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).

Dave McEwen was surprised to be involved at Everton - now he hopes he&rsquo&#59;s done enough to stay in the first team squad. <P class=MsoNormal>The young striker came off the treatment table for the first time in six weeks to play 45 minutes of a reserve friendly at Charlton last Tuesday. <P class=MsoNormal>Four days later and his whole-hearted approach in a 25-minute substitute&rsquo&#59;s stint at Goodison Park won praise from all quarters. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;It was a surprise to be called up,&rdquo&#59; he admitted. &ldquo&#59;I eased my way back from injury with a reserve game at Charlton in midweek, I got 45 minutes there and that was my first game for six weeks. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;There have been a few injuries and obviously before those players come back you have to do the best you can. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;When you get the chance you have to take it and make sure when you get that chance, not to let it go. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;It was brilliant to be involved and it&rsquo&#59;s up to the manager now. All I can do is do the best I can.&rdquo&#59; <P class=MsoNormal>To be fair to McEwen it was all about hard work rather than goalscoring glory in a rearguard action against the Toffees. <P class=MsoNormal>Few chances came his way but his willingness to chase lost causes won applause from travelling fans and he linked up well with the likes of Sergei Rebrov and Darren Anderton. <P class=MsoNormal>He added: &ldquo&#59;It was hard to come in because we were under a lot of pressure. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;We couldn&rsquo&#59;t pass the ball and knock it about as we like to. It was just hard work throughout the team and trying to hang on for the result. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;We&rsquo&#59;re happy to get the point because we were under pressure. Everton haven&rsquo&#59;t been winning but they played well so it was a good point.&rdquo&#59; <P class=MsoNormal><I>Listen to Dave's thoughts by clicking <A href="">here</A></I> <P class=MsoNormal> <P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
