Stay positive

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).

Darren Anderton is determined that the season is remembered as an all-round success rather than one of cup disappointment.

To do that he knows we have to quickly turn around the dip in fortunes that has led to successive 4-0 defeats and a painful FA Cup exit at the hands of Chelsea.

The first chance to do that is Monday's live televised Premiership clash against Charlton Athletic at the Lane.

The midfielder insisted: "You have to respect Charlton as you do every Premiership team but we've had to suffer a couple of defeats and we need to get back to winning ways.

"We are all determined to turn it around on Monday and restore a bit of pride.

"It would be great to finish the season off in a positive manner.

"Then we'd have reached one cup final, one quarter-final and if we finish the season well, we'll look back at it as a success."

Darren reflected on how quickly footballing fortunes can change - three weeks ago we were looking forward to the Worthington Cup Final in Cardiff and the FA Cup quarter-final to follow, now we've the lost the final, lost in the FA Cup and it's suddenly crisis time.

"Things can change so quickly," he said. "They say a week is a long time in football and we've proved that. It's been a tough time but we're all determined to turn it around again."
