+Robbo's Diary

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).

IT WAS A good result for us against Liverpool last Saturday and we were pleased with it. We said before the game that a draw would be a good result for us, it keeps us ticking over and keeps the momentum going.

Luis Garcia's goal was a good one, I saw it all the way, but just couldn't get near it! It started well outside and it was above me as well - I think it went over me before it went around me and it was a good finish. Not as good as Erik's though.

Fernando Morientes has a good chance from close range before half-time and I was pleased to save it - I just managed to get something on it.

Overall it was a good result and a good performance.

WE WERE NOT happy with the way we played in the first half against West Brom on Wednesday - we played very poorly. We did better in the second and should have won. It was another good goal against me, Gera got it from about 12 yards out and just whipped it with pace. It came through a lot of bodies and I didn't even get the chance to get a dive off.

A neutral looking at it would probably think a draw was a fair result and it was a good game to watch.

OUR NEXT GAME is a big one and I don't need telling that. We'd like to take something away from Highbury on Monday, it is a big game not only for us, but for the supporters as well.

We know if we win there it could make their season. Hopefully we can reward the way they have been with us this year and take something with a big performance.

We have played well away from home but just haven't scored enough goals. We've had one of the tightest defences and played reasonably well - lets hope we can get that win on Monday.

We have given ourselves a little platform this season to build on over the next couple of years. We can achieve something this year and it would be a massive disappointment if we don't, in the next couple of years, progress from where we are.

Highbury has not been a great place for me to play before, I've been hit for four I think every time I've been there. I don't like it and want to go there and win. Turn it around and put in a good performance.

It has not been a lucky ground for me, but this has been a new team and a whole new start for me. It has been a good season and I need to take that into Monday night's game.
