WBA display strikes chord with Glenn

Posted on 10 December 2002  - 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 said West Brom's display at the Lane on Sunday reminded him of his days at Swindon Town.

The Baggies, expected to sit back and defend, impressed as they threw men forward in response to our early goal.

But for all their energy, chances were wasted and we showed how it should be done in front of goal - after 30 minutes, it was two shots, two goals, 2-0 and we eventually ran out 3-1 winners.

Glenn was in charge at Swindon between 1991-93, his first managerial job, and took the club into the Premiership.

He said: "The difference between the two teams reminded me of when I was at Swindon.

"West Brom played exceedingly well on the ball, had lots of possession and when I was Swindon manager we used to control games but the cutting edge wasn't quite there. That was the difference.

"We had five or six moments of good movement and passing and we created something. You always felt we could score.

"Robbie nearly had about five one-on-ones, he was a whisker away a few times. You always felt we could open them up."
