Simon's Welsh warning

Posted on 11 September 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).

Andy Melville has already signalled Fulham's intent to his Welsh team-mate Simon Davies on international duty last week.

The pair will rub shoulders again at Loftus Road on Wednesday night having starred together in Wales' 2-0 Euro 2004 qualifying win in Finland.

And Melville appears determined to erase the memories of our three victories against the Cottagers last season.

Simon, a goalscorer for Wales in Helsinki and against Fulham, twice, last season, revealed: "I spoke to Andy Melville with Wales and he said that we were Fulham's bogey team and they are determined to put that right.

"We'll go into the game full of confidence. I don't think we've played as well as we did last season so far but we're getting results now, which is the important thing.

"We've made a bright start and all we can do is keep winning the games."

Simon has also made a bright start with three goals in his six games so far this season.

Two of those goals have come for Wales and Saturday's victory over Finland underlined the new wave of optimism sweeping Welsh football that he is so much a part of.

"It was a great start for us," he reflected at Spurs Lodge. "We didn't play particularly well in the first half but went in 1-0 up and did well in the second half, upped the tempo a little and it was great to get on the scoresheet again."
