+Robbo raises his game

Posted on 24 March 2005  - 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).

Paul Robinson is in little doubt that he's raised his game since arriving at Spurs last summer.


The England number one had a tough time of it as Leeds United suffered relegation in 2003-04 but he's quickly found his feet again since making the move south.


Robbo has kept 12 clean sheets in the Barclays Premiership and has started the last five England internations since taking over from David James in September.


He's expected to start again when England take on Northern Ireland on Saturday and Azerbaijan on Wednesday in World Cup qualifiers.


Robbo gives a lot of credit to his coach Hans Segers while also thanking Lane legend and goalkeeping consultant Pat Jennings.


"I've definitely improved since I came to Spurs," said Robbo. "Hans is a good coach and I've learned a lot from him, especially my technical ability which I feel I've improved.


"And you can't fail to learn from someone like Pat. Just having him around the place - the man's a legend. That speaks for himself. He's a great man and he achieved so much in the game."
