That'll do for starters!

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).

Sean Davis is understandably more than satisfied with the start of his Spurs career.

Two solid and stylish performances in the centre of our midfield have contributed to a four-point haul from our opening two games against Liverpool and Newcastle.

Speaking outside St James Park after Saturday's fine win over the Magpies, Sean reflected that it is some achievement to emerge from the venue with the points and no goals conceded.

"To come away from home to a place like Newcastle, score a goal and keep a clean sheet, is obviously a great result," said the summer recruit from Fulham.

"I've never got anything up here so, to start my Spurs career with a draw against Liverpool and a win here, is fantastic.

"They were at home and we had to weather the storm. There were a few chances in the first half, but we had at least four or five good chances in the game and were perhaps unlucky not to score one or two more."

It did appear that failing to net in the opening period drew the venom from Newcastle's attacking intent in the second half and Sean feels our team contains the perfect weapons to take advantage of such occasions.

"We just kept it solid with two banks of four and, with the likes of Jermain and Fredi up front, you can always nick a goal. This time it was Thimee who scored and it was a great goal."
