Glenn on the Robbie Show
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 reflected that it was human nature for Robbie Keane to be slightly charged up while playing against his former club.
Robbie certainly had a zip about his play as he ran the Leeds rearguard ragged and sealed our win with a spectacular goal five minutes before the break.
The boss compared Robbie's display with the one he put on at Blackburn in October, but admitted playing against old clubs does tend to bring the best out in players.
"He was similar up at Blackburn," pointed out Glenn. "But when you play against your old team it's human nature, there is a spring in your step and you want to do well.
"I thought we did well from 1-11 but, if you pushed me on Man of the Match, I thought Keaney was a bit special today. The goal epitomised his performance."
Leeds boss Terry Venables felt it was inevitable Keane would score.
"It was mentioned in the week and it normally happens," lamented Venables. "He did play particularly well though, there is no doubt about that."
Venables' current luck was also summed up by speedily handing the ball back to Stephen Carr for the throw-in that led to Spurs scoring.
"I did do that. You're absolutely right, of course. I wasn't concentrating and was trying to get someone's attention. The ball came to my hands and I gave it to Carr and the next thing they are off and running. That's also typical of my luck of course - I thought 'I can't believe that...'"
Meanwhile, Glenn reported after the game that Gus Poyet had stitches inserted after the collision that saw him replaced in the closing minutes.
