The flying full-back, a professional at the Lane since 1993, says we have to go on and qualify for Europe this season.
He insisted: "This squad looks capable on paper but you don't want a team that's capable and not doing it.
"I think you are only looked upon as one of the better teams or squads if you do something.
"There is no point us now missing out on Europe this season but saying potentially we've got a very good team and good young players coming through - of course we have.
"I think it is one of the best squads in recent seasons but we have to match the previous best squads to prove we're up there with them. We can do that by qualifying for Europe."
Steve Carr believes our current squad is up there with the best in recent seasons at Spurs - but has to now realise that undoubted potential.
