Steffen's Diary

Posted on 7 October 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).

It was a nice win again and another special feeling. Again, I have waited eight and a half months for another game in the Premiership and we won.

It was wonderful and we deserved to win against Blackburn. Okay, we had problems in the second half for 20 minutes, but then we created a lot of chances.

Three times we were one on one with the goalkeeper and I think we should have finished the game before we did. That is why we deserved to win.

I made a run down the right wing like I did at times last season and there will be more to come soon. I have to look after my fitness at the moment, I can't do it all the time because I am still building up my stamina.

I am happy to be back and happy to play in the first team - I will keep my place now.

It was very close for me whether or not I would play at Ewood Park. I wasn't sure on Thursday after being out for so long. I played in the cup game, but this was the Premiership and only five days after.

It was very, very close because it was a different level for me and that's why I wasn't sure if I could do it.

It was on Saturday morning that I knew I could play. The manager gave me a little bit of rest on Thursday and that was very important for me. I had an easier session on Friday and, on Saturday morning I knew straight away that I could play and help the team on Sunday.
