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).

Simon Davies, one of our young finds of the season and Official Spurs Website Player of the Month for April, is in the hotseat to answer questions from fans in this video special.<P>Darren from Enfield: How did you feel when you first joined Spurs?<P class=MsoNormal>Simon Davies: &ldquo&#59;Delighted. From playing in the Third Division to getting a move into the Premiership was a dream come true for both me and Matthew.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Phil from Derby: How big a jump is it from Division Three to the Premiership?<P class=MsoNormal>SD: &ldquo&#59;Massive. Playing wise, it is a totally different pace and there is so much to get used to. The size of the club and financially as well it is totally different."<P class=MsoNormal>Jayne from Broxbourne: What was it like to play for Barry Fry?<P class=MsoNormal>SD: &ldquo&#59;He was brilliant for me. He gave me my debut at 18 and I played just about every game from there under him. He always said that we would only move when the time was right and we felt the time was right when Spurs came in.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Paul from London: Were you overawed when you first joined the club?<P class=MsoNormal>SD: &ldquo&#59;Yes, probably until the end of that season. All the players you&rsquo&#59;ve watched on TV, to suddenly come part of it was an unbelievable feeling. The first three months were pretty hard.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Adam from Colchester? Do you hope to play a regular part next season even if a lot of players come in?<P class=MsoNormal>SD: &ldquo&#59;I&rsquo&#59;d like to think so but obviously if players come in it will become harder. We&rsquo&#59;ve had a lot of injuries towards the end of the season and I suppose we&rsquo&#59;ll all see where we really stand next season.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Trond from Norway: Who is your favourite player?<P class=MsoNormal>SD: &ldquo&#59;There are a couple really but I used to support Manchester United when Eric Cantona was there and I always thought he was a bit special.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>John from Cardiff: How proud were you to win your first full Welsh cap?<P class=MsoNormal>SD: &ldquo&#59;Unbelievable. When I was growing up I used to watch a lot of the games anyway so to know what it&rsquo&#59;s like to sit in the crowd, to then be on the pitch was a proud moment for me an my family.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Andy from Southend: Who has been you toughest opponent so far?<P class=MsoNormal>SD: &ldquo&#59;It&rsquo&#59;s hard to say but I&rsquo&#59;d go for Paul Scholes.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Jane from Tottenham: What are your personal targets for next season?<P class=MsoNormal>SD: &ldquo&#59;First and foremost to stay in the squad and to be there or thereabouts if injuries come up again. I&rsquo&#59;ve been lucky to get my chance this season and I&rsquo&#59;d like to think the manager would throw me in again.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Richard from Surrey: What would you have been if you weren&rsquo&#59;t a footballer?<P class=MsoNormal>SD: &ldquo&#59;I would have tried to be a PE teacher.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>&nbsp&#59;<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
