Gomes praises unity

White Hart Lane fans have a special rapport with goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes - and our Brazilian international mirrors that affection.

Indeed, Spurs fans have been brought up on a diet of brilliant shot stoppers including the likes of Pat Jennings, Bill Brown, Ted Ditchburn, Ray Clemence and Paul Robinson. All were deservedly revered - just as Gomes is now.

"I love the atmosphere here," says Gomes. "I try to build a good relationship with the supporters because I like to feel together as one with them. They make the club what it is."

And Gomes is convinced that training and working with such a positive vibe about the place inspires the players.

"We operate in a very good atmosphere and that can only help," he adds. "It ensures team unity and with it a feeling that anything and everything is possible. The team spirit here is great.

"It has to be that way because the Premier League is so tough. You must band together to succeed."

Read the full story in the September issue of our monthly magazine, Hotspur, where fans also have the chance to win a pair of signed Gomes gloves in our free-to-enter competition. Don't miss it!
