Rob's joy

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).

A delighted Robbie Keane declared that his first goals in front of Spurs fans at the Lane were 'something special'.

Having opened his account in our previous Premiership encounter at Blackburn Rovers, the Irish star bagged a brace in Sunday's impressive 3-1 win against Bolton to take us up to third.

A livewire from first minute to last, Robbie took the game to Bolton and thoroughly deserved his reward.

He said afterwards: "It was great to score at Blackburn but to score in front of the home crowd for the first time was something special.

"First and foremost the most important thing was getting the win and it's good to see the lads coming back from injury as well.

"The first goal we had the ball for quite a while, passing and movement, a great move and lucky enough I was on the end of it.

"You've seen how well we can play out there. At times, like I said with the first goal, we passed the ball around for ages. And we all believe there is more to come.

"It's important we don't get carried away but to believe we are good enough to be there, because we are. With the players we'll get back from injury as well we can only go from strength to strength."

And he added that his confidence simply comes from playing. "I'm confident and I feel good," he said.

"As I said before, I'm happiest when I'm playing football. As a footballer, you don't want to be on the bench or in the stand. Most footballers are happiest when they are playing. That's all I want to do and I'm relishing the chance here."
