Shooting stars

Posted on 6 November 2003  - 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).

David Pleat says we can learn from Bolton's shoot-on-sight policy.

The Trotters rained in the shots from all angles in Saturday's clash at the Lane, hit the woodwork four times and eventually left with a 1-0 win.

Caretaker boss David reasoned: ""We have to take a leaf out of Bolton's book and have shots from further out instead of trying to be too intricate around the last man and create free space to get an effort at goal.

"If we gets shots in I'm sure we will get goals. I don't doubt we have goalscoring potential at the club, I don't doubt it for a minute.

"Okocha's shots definitely gave a vibrancy to the Bolton team.

"At least those shots were from distance and they weren't getting in behind us and all the players have brought that into focus as well."
