Bobby Zamora missed out on the action but enjoyed an extra, personal benefit from our tour of South Africa - getting to know his new team-mates.
The striker has been troubled by a slight groin problem and although he took part in light training, he sat out the games against Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs.
His instant impact in two halves of football after joining and his natural amiable personality almost makes you forget that he's only been at Spurs for two weeks.
What a whirlwind first week as well - from signing on the dotted line and his press conference on Friday 18th, two goals on his debut at Oxford the following Sunday, another goal at Norwich last Tuesday and off to South Africa last Wednesday.
"It's been an amazing few days really," reflected Bobby after a training session in South Africa. "And now this tour is helping me settle in even more.
"It's given me the chance to spend a lot of time with the lads and I'm getting to know them."
Although naturally delighted to have got off the mark so early in our friendlies, Bobby stays realistic to the real job in hand.
He added: "It's been nice to score early but I know it will be a completely different kettle of fish if I get the chance to play in the Premiership.
"I thought my performance at Norwich was a lot better than Oxford, I'm settling in well and it's gone well so far."
