Simon on United front
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 felt the patched up team deserved some reward for their huge collective efforts against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.
With 13 players missing, Steffen Iversen and Simon himself playing in unfamiliar positions, United might have expected a far easier ride than the decidedly uncomfortable one they got with only a Ruud van Nistelrooy penalty proving the difference between the sides.
"You can't fault the lads' effort, we really battled hard, created a couple of chances and were unlucky to lose in the end," reflected Simon back at Spurs Lodge.
With such a mammoth injury list, the team on display worked tirelessly to ensure that not easy pickings were on offer. Discipline was called for and delivered.
"Exactly, down the right we had a centre forward playing in right midfield and I was playing right back. I thought we did well, we went out there with a defensive head on and Steffen in front of me was very disciplined.
"It turned out alright and I don't think we did too bad."
