Simon says...

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).

Simon Davies admits that he would have preferred a more straightforward victory, but was delighted all the same with the 4-3 triumph over Everton.

The Welsh flyer reflected that the boys were a bit uptight in the opening stages of the game after recent setbacks and points out that the defending as a team must improve.

"It was a massive result for us in the end," said Simon. "I think everyone could tell the lads were a bit edgy and nervous so to get the win under our belts means a lot to us.

"We were creating chances so we always knew we could score, but we would have preferred a more routine victory - but the result is all that matters.

"We look at the goals we've conceded and we're disappointed with them. Robbie scored a great hat-trick that won us the game, but we're disappointed with our defending as a team."

Simon adopted a simple and direct approach when asked to describe the impact Robbie Keane had on the game.

"Great game, great goals, great player."
