Tano: We must dictate

Posted on 4 April 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).

Mauricio Taricco insists that it is vital for the team to impose their own style of play on Birmingham and dictate the play when the Blues visit the Lane on Saturday.

The St Andrews outfit have certainly set their stall out in the Premiership and are prepared to adopt a slightly rugged approach to games to close down and cancel out the attacking intent of the opposition.

Mauricio, however, feels that it is Birmingham who must be planted firmly on the back foot in order for us to end the recent points drought.

"Hopefully we can dominate the game and play better than we have been lately - and get the points," said the full-back, who considers that Birmingham must be more than satisfied with the way their campaign has developed.

"In my opinion that is the way we must perform because if we don't we may struggle a bit.

"They've got enough points at this stage to consider themselves nearly safe and they have a good chance of staying in the Premiership. They have nearly achieved what they set out to do.

"From their point of view, I'm sure they are quite happy with the way the season is going.

"We need the points and we're going to play to get them - hopefully we can do that. We know we need to play well and impose ourselves.

"We need to get the football going so the fans can enjoy it a bit and get behind us. We have to give them something to cheer. Hopefully it will be a nice game of football with us getting the points."
