Tottenham's teenage fullback Gareth Bale insists morale is as strong as ever, despite their poor start and speculation over Martin Jol's future.

He told the club's website: "All the talk has bought us all closer together and the team can kick on when we get that one result. We've got the team spirit, the character and we've obviously got the potential. We know we can do it, we've just got to get out there and prove it."
