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).

Paul Robinson, Pedro's Old Trafford 'goal' and a pepperami feature in the latest batch of your personal reflections of season 2004-05...

I think the best part of the season for me was Paul Robinson's relationship with the fans. I think it has been a fantasic season with Robinson in our squad, I think we can safely say that he has been the one that has helped us to get within the top 10 this season, he has saved some very good chances from many players. The best part about Paul Robinson's relationship with the fans is that he is not just England's number 1, he is Tottenham's number 1 as well. I think I can speak for all the fans when I say this, the song 'England's number 1' means a lot to the fans for what he has helped us achieve and also it means a lot to Paul as well.

He has come a very long way since the beginning of the season and has improved massively. I'd like to think that Paul will be with us for some time because I love coming to games knowing we can sing a song to him from all the fans around the world and that means a lot to us and him.

I couldn't believe it when the final whistle blew for a final score of 0-0 at Old Trafford as I sat watching Spurs perform brilliantly against their supposedly superior opponents on Premiership Plus, 'relaxing' on the night before my mock GCSE exams, the 3rd of January. Sure, I was perfectly relaxed for 89 minutes or so before I realised that Pedro Mendes' goal wasn't going to be given.

I could tell it was over the line just from seeing it on the TV screen first time round, without a replay. I was expecting the ref to signal goal and the Spurs fans to be walking away from Old Trafford singing happily for the extra two points the goal would have given us.

But no, the linesman wasn't looking, Roy Carroll didn't admit that the ball had crossed the line and referee Mark Clattenburg didn't give the goal from where he was standing, a similar viewpoint to that of the TV pictures I was watching and could clearly see that the ball had gone a good couple of feet past the line.

As a result, I was far from relaxed on going to bed and far from relaxed as I sat down to my exam papers the next day, still seething about the previous evening's injustice.

My name is Declan Minnock aged 14 and a JSM. Me and a mate of mine and his Dad went to see Spurs against Middlesborough at the Lane when it was screened on the jumbotron just after we had seen it advertised on the website the night before. When Jermain Defoe jumped on that pepperami - that was at the Riverside for no apparent reason - and bundled it to the ground all the fans back in London cheered and that made my season, which was saying something as I also went to three matches against Nottingham Forest, Brighton and Blackburn at home.
