+Simon says 'thanks'

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 has thanked the fans for their response after his return was greeted with a huge cheer at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

The midfielder came on as a second half substitute in the goalless draw against Norwich City having recovered from summer shin surgery.

"It was a fantastic reception," said Simon. "That's what you aim for when you come back from injury, that the fans will give you a warm welcome when return and I couldn't have asked for more.

"It was just a shame we didn't win the game but their goalkeeper was man-of-the-match and that says a lot."

Simon was straight into the action in a 25-minute stint - setting up a Thimothee Atouba volley that forced the save of the game from City goalkeeper Robert Green.

"I probably got more of the ball in those 25 minutes than in a few games last season," he added. "The way we play, the manager wants us to stay wide and to feed his wingers.

"I enjoyed it. Hopefully when I get started in the team I'll see plenty of the ball and be able to do something with it."
