Redknapp delight

Posted on 22 January 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).

Jamie Redknapp is delighted that the team have hit an upward curve since the turn of the year.

The captain - hoping to hit the comeback trail for the reserves next week - feels that the FA Cup tie against Crystal Palace provided the turning point after a December sequence that saw us fall into the bottom three in the Premiership.

"Things do look like they are going well and we have hit a bit of form," pondered Jamie at Spurs Lodge. "It is a great start to the year, the football is good and I thought we deserved to win on Saturday against Liverpool.

"The Crystal Palace game was the catalyst for us, it really sparked us off and gave us a bit of confidence. Since then we've gone from strength to strength and that is what we need. It gives us a good chance for the Cup game on Sunday and then we've got some good games coming up."

With the nature of the Premiership this season, it has often been stated that two or three wins make a huge impact on the standings. Jamie is relieved that the team have realised that objective and are now seeking to build on the positive run of results.

"Of course, when you are down there you look at the bottom three but with a couple of wins you can force your way out of it. It is tough down there at the moment and, luckily enough, we have pulled away from it.

"We want to get as many points as we can and then start looking upwards rather than at the bottom end."
