Carr just starting

Posted on 13 December 2002  - 12:00

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).

Stephen Carr says there is plenty more to come from him as his fitness improves by the game.

The flying wing-back has played nine games after returning from a hamstring pull on the opening day of the season at Everton.

That problem followed a nightmare year on the sidelines with a knee injury.

Honest as ever, the Irish star insisted he wasn't where he wanted to be at the moment but explained that it was almost a case of trying to hold onto the reins a little.

"My performance is not up to what I want yet and I think it will be a little while," he said.

It was quickly put to him that people might forget that he'd been out for all-but 18 months. "I do myself," he responded. "I'm getting there but I can't expect too much until I get my full fitness back.

"When you get that it helps with your performance especially where I play, going forward a lot.

"I don't feel I can quite get there at the moment throughout the whole game so I have to bide my time a bit.

"The more games I play the fitter I'll get and hopefully in a few more games I'll be there."
