Spirit's sky high

Posted on 2 September 2004  - 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).

Jermain Defoe insists the team spirit is bubbling at Spurs - summed up by our win against Birmingham and unbeaten start to the Premiership.

Saturday's 1-0 win against the Blues was a typical 'dig deep' display and another excellent defensive performance.

Of course, at the other end, Jermain provided the goal-den moment of the game to clinch the points with his superb solo effort.

The striker conceded these are the games team want and need to win.

"Definitely, especially at home," he said. "They are the games people expect us to win with the players we have now.

"Everyone was delighted to get the three points and we all had smiles after the game. The spirit's great here at the moment."

Jermain believes that spirit was forged in a busy pre-season. "Everyone worked really hard in pre-season, we had a lot of games and it was all about fitness, the results didn't matter," he added, "Everyone looks fit and strong and the team spirit is very strong and the time we all spent together can only have helped."
