Simon's mixed feelings

Posted on 10 July 2002  - 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).

Simon Davies looks back on last season with mixed emotions.

On a personal level it was a fantastic season - named in the 16 in all-but one of our 49 games, starting 31 - but he points out the natural feeling of disappointment of not making it into Europe following a stirring campaign.

Still only 22, Simon set the crowd alight with his dashes down the right-hand side, performances that helped him secure his spot in the Welsh side as well.

He reflected: "Personally it went well but obviously we were all disappointed not to get into Europe through the cups or the league.

"I set out a few targets at the start of the season, to try to start on the bench and go from there.

"I started on the bench at beginning of the season, got a few games and I felt I did okay when I got my chance and that's how it progressed thoughout the season.

"It went how I've planned and I want the same again next season and to continue improving."

Simon says at a club like Spurs it's not just about grabbing your chance when you get it, but maintaining a level of consistency over a period of time.

He added: "It's not as simple as taking your chance and that's that.

"You take your chance and you'll play for three or four games and then you might be out again. It's a big club and that's what you expect.

"With new players coming in again it will be tough again but you must keep improving, that's all you can do."
