Kasey's praise for Cud 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).
Kasey Keller appreciated as much as anyone the quality of Carlo Cudicini's stunning save from Jamie Redknapp's free-kick to keep us at bay in Sunday's clash against Chelsea.
The Blues' number one made three superb saves to deny us and, in tricky conditions for goalkeepers, everything stuck as the game ended goalless.
The pick of the bunch was the save from Jamie's dipping, volleyed free-kick from 25 yards when he clearly took a step in the wrong direction but recovered to turn back and tip the ball over the bar.
Kasey, also in fine form, commented: "Jamie and I were talking about it and it's a very difficult ball to see for a keeper because you don't see it until late.
"So what happens is when you don't see it coming, you to tend to chase it over the wall. If Jamie put it a yard either side it would have been in but he made a great recovery and then had a strong hand to get it over the bar. It was a fantastic save. At first I thought he had it, then I thought he'd overrun it, but then he produced the save.
"It was tough out there especially after the downpour and you have a combination of conditions. If it's wet, it's wet and you can adjust to that but when it's wet, dry, wet, dry it's difficult and you have to take that extra care and keep the ball close."
Kasey reflected the mood of a dressing room that felt we were worthy of a win.
"I think if we'd have got three points today or perhaps a draw at both Liverpool and against Chelsea we would have been pretty happy," he said.

"We had the chance to beat the spell but you have to give credit to Cudicini, who made three great saves. They tried to counter on us but credit to the lads, they always got back well and that makes a difference to me when I'm trying to make a save that there is pressure on the ball."
