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).

Few fans will ever forget Ronny &lsquo&#59;Rocket&rsquo&#59; Rosenthal&rsquo&#59;s finest hour in a Spurs shirt. <IMG align=right border=1 src="/media/images/decorative/photos/ronnie1.jpg"> <P class=MsoNormal>Cast your mind back to 1994-1995 and our run to the semi-finals of the FA Cup, a run that included the famous win at Anfield. <P class=MsoNormal>But that run looked all-but over at Southampton on March 1. We trailed the fifth round replay 2-0 at the Dell when Ronny came off the substitute&rsquo&#59;s bench just before half-time &mdash&#59; he transformed the tie with a double blast to take the game into extra time before completing his hat-trick as we won 6-2. <P class=MsoNormal>As we prepare to meet the Saints on Sunday, we&rsquo&#59;ve asked for your memories of that night at the Dell and other Southampton stories in our new series 'Do You Remember When...'. <P class=MsoNormal>Now it&rsquo&#59;s Ron&rsquo&#59;s turn &mdash&#59; we turned our roving camera on him during the summer for our Where Are They Now series and, of course, Southampton was on the menu. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;It just doesn&rsquo&#59;t get better than that,&rdquo&#59; said Ronny as his London home. &ldquo&#59;It didn&rsquo&#59;t surprise me because in my career I was capable of some unbelievable performances, I would have liked to have more but I always managed to produce a special event. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;I scored a hat-trick on my debut for Liverpool &mdash&#59; that was unbelievable. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;At Southampton I was coming back from injury and I didn&rsquo&#59;t feel 100 per cent fit but I was so hungry to be in the side. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;I have had better performances though. In Belgium I will never forget when I was with Bruges we played Borussia Dortmund in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Cup. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;We lost the first leg 3-0 at Dortmund but we beat them 5-0 in Bruges at that was maybe the best night in my career. I was involved in all the goals. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;So I had better performances than Southampton but that was also one of the best.&rdquo&#59; <P class=MsoNormal>In this video special, Ronny talks about his career before and after football and his move from a boy in Israel to European stardom. <P class=MsoNormal><I>To watch the interview, <A href="">click here</A> <P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p> <P class=MsoNormal><SPAN style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp&#59;</SPAN></I>
