Setting the standard

Posted on 29 April 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).

Kasey Keller hopes we've set the standard for the rest of the season and beyond with the performance and stirring comeback against Arsenal.

Trailing 2-0 at the break to the newly-crowned champions, Jamie Redknapp's 25-yarder on the hour gave us hope and after pinning Arsenal back, Robbie Keane's injury time penalty secured a deserved point.

"Let's hope we can finish positively from here," said Kasey. "Everyone was happy. We were happy after doing something like that, the supporters were happy and it's important for us.

"It's nice to come back against the champions and get something out of a game that could so easily have gone very badly.

"We said at half-time that we needed to score first in the second half and go from there. We did that, battled, rode our luck, got the late penalty and Robbie stepped up and buried it.

"Credit to everyone. Jamie's strike was fantastic. No-one quit, we all pulled together and it's a case now where hopefully that sets the standard.

"It's something we need to aspire to every time we step on the field."
