Your Say...on Derby

Posted on 4 February 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).

In our new feature 'Have Your Say' we asked for your feedback from Saturday's game against Derby County at Pride Park. Here are the pick of the replies...

Colin Ryan, London: Once again we have dominated play. I feel short-term we need to get better crosses in to the box as we seem to play the ball at a good height for the first defender. Long-term we need to bring not one but two recognised goalscorers into the squad. We need to win the cup so we then get the missing
ingredient of European football and the ability to attract quality strikers. All our passing and movement and organised play is not reaping the rewards it deserves.

Chris Chumbley, Stevenage: Yet again we underachieved whilst having by far and away the superior side. We need to consolidate our position as one of the top clubs in the division. Derby are not in our league. Come on lads and play like we have seen earlier this season.

Nigel Barnes, Medway: Lots of pretty football in the first half but ran out of ideas in the second half. Once again, we seem unable to turn possession into goals.

Neil Goodwin, Peterborough: A supporter of Spurs now for 29 years. Fantastic progress under Glenn but we must focus more on the Premiership and turn our superiority into goals by either an extended run for Rebrov or some new strikers!

Matthew Ellis, Braintree: I watched this game on Sky Box Office and thought we deserved at least a draw. Having said that at times we played like the second half of the Newcastle game, which I saw first hand. In the Newcastle game we dominated first half and they didn't have a shot on goal to which I can recall. Second half we played horrendously and conceded three. Derby could have done that but thanks to some poor finishing and good defending we stayed in the match.

Eleanor Radville, Ickenham: Why is it that Spurs continue to be so inconsistent? Not only did they beat Chelsea 5 - 1 but they played them off the park. We bossed the midfield and the best striking partnership in the Premiership were kept under wraps four the 60 minutes that they were paired together. Then we come up against lesser opposition and we blow it. Over Christmas I thought we could really kick on in the league, with fixtures against Charlton, Ipswich and Southampton. The inconsistency is so frustrating because our standard of football is generally so high and our movement and play so good, yet there appears no link between this and our results!
