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).

Terry Venables reflected on his return to the Lane as a job well done.<P class=MsoNormal>The new Middlesbrough manager was delighted with his side&rsquo&#59;s defensive display as they grabbed another point towards their relegation fight with a 0-0 draw.<P class=MsoNormal>Ex-Spurs boss Venables said: &ldquo&#59;I've got to be satisfied with a point when you look at Tottenham's home record which was seven wins and two draws before today.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;We've worked on our defending and it is paying off but there is still lots more work to do. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;At the moment that is difficult because we all have so many games to play in a short time. It is a case of matching and patching, but once we get all our injured players back I think we'll do well.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;I'm very happy with the response I've seen from the players since I came to Middlesbrough to help Bryan Robson.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;They've had to learn some new disciplines on the field but they are doing it well and hopefully we can take it on a bit.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;Bryan has been pretty active in the transfer market over the last six years or however long he's been at the club and we've got a strong squad when everybody is fit. <P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;We'll be looking out for any more quality players that become available but it is not as though I feel we've got to rush out and get somebody urgently.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
