Luk-ing for victory

Luka Modric believes it will take a team effort to turn our season around - and he is fully confident we can do so.

The Croatian midfielder is starting to get to grips with the English game following his summer move from Dinamo Zagreb, but he insists it's not about individuals at the moment.

Luka is instead focused on getting that elusive league victory to give our season a much-needed kick-start.

"The mood in the squad is ok, but everyone knows what the situation is and nobody expected to be in this position," he said.

"The next league game against Bolton could be the turning point in our season if we win because things will look so much better.

"We believe in ourselves and know we can win games because we have enough quality to do so, even though we haven't shown it yet.

"It's difficult to assess my own performances at the moment. I know I can play better, but I think we all can.

"It's not about individuals. If we play better as a team, then we can expect better days and better results."

Up next for Juande Ramos' side is our opening group game of this season's UEFA Cup against Italian side Udinese on Thursday.

"The UEFA Cup is also an important competition for us and Udinese are a good team, so it will be a difficult game," added Luka.

"European games are different to league games because we may get more time on the ball and that could give us an opportunity to express ourselves."
