Game by game - Aaron

Aaron Lennon insists the lads aren't getting carried away after making the perfect start to the season.

The flying winger is in the form of his life having scored late winners in our last two league games against West Ham and Birmingham City.

Saturday's strike just seconds from time against the Blues at the Lane made it four wins out of four in the Barclays Premier League, plus a 5-1 victory at Doncaster in the Carling Cup.

"It's been a great start and confidence is sky high at the moment," beamed 'Azza' after Saturday's late, late show. "But we're taking it game by game - we're going well now and we are determined to try and maintain it."

It's a stark contrast to last season's disappointing start. "The squad has had more time to play together and last season I think we were unlucky as well, things weren't going our way," said Aaron.

"This season we've scored a couple of late goals and the team has started better. We had a good pre-season together and the squad has gelled."

Azza's form has seen him back in the England squad for Saturday's friendly against Slovenia and next Wednesday's World Cup qualifier against Croatia, both at Wembley.

It was pointed out that England coach Fabio Capello has been a regular at our games. "I suppose it can only help my chances, but I'm only concentrating on playing well for Spurs and if I get a shot at England, I'll take it from there," he added.
