Kasey's welcome break

Posted on 18 February 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).

Kasey Keller feels the team will definitely benefit from the enforced 16-day break as the season heads towards the final furlongs.

Our last Premiership fixture was against Sunderland on February 8 and the team are next back in action against Fulham on Monday.

Kasey says that bodies and minds are now refreshed and ready for the challenge of the final 11 games of the season.

"Definitely," he stated. "It is a good time of the year to have a little break. Especially after the craziness of the Christmas period.

"You feel like you're getting back into a bit of a pattern after a break where a few other teams are playing a ton of games.

"We had that last year with the two cups, running all over the place. It really is hard to stay consistent when you are that tired."

Kasey added that the opportunity to enter the next phase of the campaign with clear heads is also a bonus that will only help achieve the consistent performances the team are striving for.

"That's what I mean also about that consistency. The physical side is a part of it, but there is also the mental side.

"You have be be able to turn off at times. If you are going two days then a game, three days then a game, you never have time to shut off - which is a very important part."
