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).

Andy Reid suspects that once himself and the forward players are on the same wavelength, productivity in front of goal can only increase.

The leftie, signed at the end of January from Nottingham Forest, has been making more and more of an impression in recent games, a signal of which was his spectacular finding of the net against Aston Villa in our last home game.

It is the supply line provided by the Republic of Ireland international from the left flank, his teasing crosses in behind defences that should prove to be a valuable source of goals once Andy and the strikers are reading each other's intentions better.

"I think that could be the case," agreed Andy. "It will take the strikers a little bit of time to get used to me and where I'm going to put balls, plus me getting used to where they are going to make runs.

"It is an adaption process and another string to the bow of the team, I suppose. It is something different and, as the manager says, he doesn't want things to be predictable when we are out on the pitch. When we come up against tight defences that are hard to break down we will maybe need something a little bit different.

"What I do won't always work and what other people do won't always work but, if we have that variation in the team, we got a better chance of breaking defences down."

Meanwhile, despite a positive beginning to his Spurs career, Andy says there is more to come from him in the future.

"I feel I have been going about my job properly and doing things in the right way. Now I just feel there is a lot more to come from me, although I don't feel I've got off to a bad start at all."
