Reaction justified

Posted on 20 April 2003  - 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).

Glenn Hoddle says the vocal frustration of the crowd against Manchester City on Friday was a justified reaction to the performance on the day.

Many of the full house at White Hart Lane voiced their disappointment at half and full time and Glenn conceded that they did not receive good value for money.

"I think you've got to expect it," said Glenn is his post-match press briefing. "People pay good money and we didn't give them value there.

"We had a go in the second half, we came out and needed that crucial goal to get the crowd really behind us - something might have happened then.

"Anything we tried almost, on the day, didn't come off. When we had a great chance Schmeichel's come up with a save with his legs. Sometimes you get away with a performance like that and get a result out of it, here is wasn't going to happen - whatever we tried didn't seem to come off.

"Of course the crowd are going to get disgruntled. I thought they were pretty patient with the way that we played. Their frustration was justified."
