Steffen's Diary

Posted on 30 December 2002  - 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).

I must say a few words about Christian Ziege who has been having some bad problems in hospital with his thigh.

I am really disappointed for him, he has played so well in the last few games and his left foot has been unbelieveable for us - his free kicks and everything.

He will come back from it and everyone is thinking about him at the moment.

We are really disappointed with the outcome at Newcastle, because that performance we put in deserved a point and I think everyone will agree with that.

We had a bad start at Man City and were maybe a little lucky there, but not here. The performance and team spirit was really good and I enjoyed the 90 minutes.

We didn't reach the same level of performance in the second half but it is really difficult. You play away and start really well - I think that was really important - but we needed a goal, the first goal.

We created some good opportunities, not chances, but a lot of opportunities in that first 20 minutes. If we had gone 1-0 up it would have been very difficult for Newcastle to come back later.

They scored from a long throw and later after a wrong decision from the referee. That's why, in the end, the defeat was really disappointing.

I would like to wish you all a very happy New Year.
