Skipper thanks the fans

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).

Jamie Redknapp has, once again, heaped praise on the White Hart Lane crowd for their incredible support against Arsenal last Sunday.

The skipper commented on the backing offered by the supporters immediately after the game and said then that it surpassed anything he experienced playing for Liverpool against Everton.

Back at the training ground this week, Jamie reflected on the atmosphere generated again and said he hoped the performance of the team rewarded the crowd.

"It was brilliant. When that second goal went in my hair felt like it was standing on end.

"It was a great, great atmosphere and I loved it. For me personally to score was a magic feeling, but when Robbie scored it was even better.

"I was pleased for the crowd because they have had a tough time this year and haven't had a great deal to shout about.

"They really got behind us and were that 12th man for us without any doubt."

Jamie know hopes the team can pick up where they left off against Aston Villa on Sunday, a side who have hit form at the right time and are in the frame for a Champions League place.

"Massive form, they have come from nowhere really," added Jamie. They have a great chance of finishing fourth, a point behind Liverpool and Newcastle with those two playing each other on the last day of the season.

"If they can win their last three games they can get in the Champions League. Hopefully though, we can do ourselves a favour as we want to get the result on Sunday."
