SO - bench

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).

I'M DELIGHTED to say that I'm back in the squad for Friday's game at Everton, I'm really looking forward to it and hoping to play a part. I've always enjoyed playing at Goodison Park, a great ground with a great history. Everyone enjoys a night game as well so I'm so it will be a&nbsp&#59;tremendous atmosphere. I can't wait. <P>YOU KNOW what you are going to get from Everton, especially with the likes of Gravesen and Carsley snapping around in midfield. That's the way they play, always competitive with forwards who can score goals for them. I think we know what's coming and we'll be ready for it. <P>WE'VE HAD a few narrow defeats in the last couple of weeks. I was at the Lane on Saturday for the Chelsea game and I thought in the first half especially we matched them. We competed well. Perhaps in the end we weren't quite clinical enough in the final third but I thought until they scored we were well in the game. We've had a dip in form since the Leicester game but we know the Arsenal game is coming up and we'll be looking to go into that one with a couple of wins behind us. <P><DIV align=center><IMG src="/media/images/decorative/photos/diggersdiary.gif" width=360 DESIGNTIMEURL="/photos/diggersdiary.gif"></DIV><P><P>THE SEASON has been up and down, up and down. It's been crazy. It would be nice to get a few wins again. The place is always different when we're not winning, everyone is a little down&nbsp&#59;because we're all&nbsp&#59;desperate to do well. The Easter period is always important and if we can manage to get a couple of wins it will set up the end of the season. We're quite a young squad and we're all learning. It will all be good experience for next season and we've a few players at the club at a similar age to me where you really want to be pushing on in your career. I've a good feeling about next season but it would be nice to end this season on a high first. <P>IT'S CITY on Monday and I'm sure all the build up to the game will be about the 4-3 result in the FA Cup. I said at the time it was a freak result. It was desperately disappointing for everyone and we all want to put it right. We need to bury that result as soon as possible. <P><B><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 20pt&#59; FONT-FAMILY: 'Monotype Corsiva'&#59; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">All the best,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p></SPAN></B> <B><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 20pt&#59; FONT-FAMILY: 'Monotype Corsiva'&#59; mso-bidi-font-size: 12.0pt">Simon<o:p></o:p></SPAN></B></P>
