Upton stark for Glenn

Posted on 2 March 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).

Glenn Hoddle couldn't find a crumb of comfort from Saturday's disappointing Premiership reverse at West Ham.

Les Ferdinand stuck to the script to score his first goal for the Hammers since leaving us in January and Michael Carrick's early strike in the second half condemned us to 2-0 defeat.

"There were no positives," conceded Glenn at Upton Park. "I thought both goals were poor goals that shouldn't have ended up in the back of the net.

"We just didn't perform. We didn't pass the ball well enough and didn't show the desire that West Ham showed and consequently we didn't deserve to get anything out of the game.

"We didn't pass it well enough and therefore didn't have the platform to control parts of the game.

"We went to Chelsea a few weeks ago and controlled the game for long periods. This time we didn't do it and then we didn't have the desire to turn things around."
