Steffen's Diary

Posted on 20 February 2003  - 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).

It's nice to have all the lads back from international duty this week and everyone looks good. Monday was a long, hard session but we all enjoyed it and we are all together again, looking forward to Fulham.

Of course, I can remember the game at Loftus Road earlier in the season but we are at home and I don't think we will let them come back into the game like that again.

We won at home last year 4-0 and that is the target, not necessarily to win 4-0, but we are at home and we have to remember that we beat Fulham a few times before we lost 3-2 at their place.

I am always confident at home and we've done well here this season. For me, we have only had one bad game, against Middlesbrough. The rest have generally been close but we've managed to win most of them.

It is always positive pressure at home from the supporters and they get behind us well.

We've had a few disappointments away and that's why it's important to come back home, handle the pressure and beat teams at the Lane.

Now we have to do it again on Monday.

Home form is vital in the Premier League. It gives you the foundation to go and compete for a place in Europe.

We are strong enough to win games away but the Premiership is really strong and you can't just say you'll win five or six games away. The target has to be to win home games and go from there.

So Fulham are next. They've had a few good games recently but they've just drawn against Burnley at home.

They beat Villa and that was a massive win, they now have a gap between them and the relegation zone, that was important for them. The pressure is off really and when that is the case, we have to be careful because they can play nice football. But I am confident we can win this game.
