Seven up

Posted on 7 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 says we should aim to make 'a mini-statement' in our last seven Premiership games.

Our American goalkeeper is determined to finish the season on a high after a frustrating run of narrow defeats - three 1-0 losses plus United's late, late show in the 3-0 reverse at Old Trafford - in our last five games.

It was the same story against Chelsea on Saturday - plenty of possession but not too many clear-cut chances and a 1-0 reverse.

"It's frustrating but we've a few games left and hopefully we'll pick it up and finish on a high note," said Kasey, incredibly ever-present now for over two years.

"Fingers crossed we'll finish well and build confidence for next season. It's always important to finish the season well both on a personal level and team-wise.

"Hopefully everyone can get hold of these last seven games and let's make a mini-statement before the break."

In a topsy-turvy season, it's no real surprise that we've gone from one extreme to another in recent weeks - from a run of 15 goals scored and 13 conceded in four games to just an own goal scored and six conceded in the last five.

"Sure, it's been a strange season," reflected Kasey. "Recently, we haven't been able to get goals when we've needed them.

"We went through that spell when we made sure we were scoring one more goal than the other team but now we've got tighter, unfortunately we haven't been able to change things at the other end. It will come though."
