Glenn on forward thinking

Posted on 10 August 2003  - 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).

Glenn Hoddle feels that all of his four first team squad strikers have the flexibility to combine with each other in tandem.

Robbie Keane, Helder Postiga, Bobby Zamora and now Fredi Kanoute make up the striking contingent and the boss is certainly happy with the variety of options at his disposal.

"I feel now that we have got a nice balance - all four have got a combination they can play in," said Glenn.

"I've looked at Bobby Zamora and his play was excellent at Brighton. I feel now that with better and more experienced players his movement is even better than I thought it was.

"Fredi has got stature - look at the size of him - he's got presence and pace. He's got a little bit of everything.

"Robbie is different, he's elusive in and around the penalty area and you don't want to defend against him. Postie is someone who I feel is a mature 20-year-old who will fly once he gets his first Premiership goal."

Glenn added that he hopes the competition for places will result in an increased goal tally and that all of them will get chances to impress.

"They will all push each other now, fighting for places and, as long as the spirit is right up there, the four of them will realise that they are all good players and are all going to get opportunities.

"I want to get to get to a time when, in the last half an hour of games, I can make changes that are going to affect the game. Everyone can't play well in every single game of the season.

"In that part of the pitch we are looking a bit stronger. We're pleased with what we've got up there and Fredi is going to have a massive impact, I'm sure."
