Si's highs and lows

Posted on 26 February 2001  - 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 quickly crashed down from the biggest high in his football career.

The young midfielder grabbed the headlines last week after coming off the bench to score two superb goals in our 4-0 win against Stockport County.

He was almost guaranteed a starting place with Oyvind Leonhardsen out for six weeks but disaster struck at the end of last week when he started to suffer from the effects of a virus.

Davies tried to tough it out in the midfield cauldron against Leeds United on Saturday but he was clearly struggling and substituted at half-time. He was immediately pulled out of the Welsh Under-21 squad and has been told to rest at home for the early part of this week.

A devastated Davies revealed: "I've been pretty ill all week and been on antibiotics and to be honest, I've not really recovered and I just didn't have anything in me at all. I felt so weak and couldn't really do my justice.

"I struggled to breathe in the game and I haven't been eating properly, I haven't really had an appetite, so it's all come out.

"It's an absolute nightmare for me but one of those things I suppose. I been pulled out of the Welsh squad and I've been told to stay at home, rest and try to get my energy levels back up."
