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).

Mido suspects the presence of Edgar Davids on the pitch has a positive effect on the players around him.

The experienced Dutch midfielder has started the games against Middlesbrough and Chelsea and shown his own qualities in both those games but Mido - facing a suspension for his red card against Chelsea - believes Davids raises the bar for the other players.

"Edgar is a great lad, a great player and I think we are very lucky to have him here," said Mido. "If you look at the last games you can see he made a big difference in the midfield. I think Michael Carrick was more aggressive because of him.

"It is a mental thing, when you see an older guy fighting for every ball you know you have to all fight with him. I think he lifted the team up and we needed a guy like him - I think he is a great signing."
