Tim's the Maine man

Posted on 10 February 2001  - 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).

Tim Sherwood is hoping to capitalise on a possible air of anxiety at Maine Road on Saturday.<P class=MsoNormal>As we turn our attentions back to climbing up the Premiership after our midweek FA Cup exploits, City are scrapping for points at the foot of the table.<P class=MsoNormal>Joe Royle&rsquo&#59;s men have lost seven times at home this season and are on a run of nine without a win. In contrast, we have yet to lose this year.<P class=MsoNormal>Midfielder Sherwood declared: &ldquo&#59;It will be difficult at City. We have to make sure we start well, keep it solid, tight early and then you&rsquo&#59;ll find that their punters might start getting a bit anxious.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;They will look to come forward because the onus is on them to break us down but hopefully we&rsquo&#59;ll be able to capitalise and pick them off.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Experienced Sherwood knows it is important not to let league form slip as we look to the FA Cup for glory this season.<P class=MsoNormal>Sherwood said: &ldquo&#59;It is our bread and butter. Week in, week out, we&rsquo&#59;re out there training for an end product and that is a league game most Saturdays.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;If we&rsquo&#59;d have turned a few draws into wins we&rsquo&#59;d have been right up there now but on the other side of the coin, if the draws turn into defeats, it could be disastrous. But we&rsquo&#59;re looking up rather than down.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
