+More to come from Reidy

Posted on 13 April 2005  - 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).

Andy Reid believes there is much more to come from him when he fully beds in following his January switch from Nottingham Forest.

The diminutive left midfielder made his debut against Portsmouth just a couple of days after his deadline-beating transfer before taking a few enforced breaks due to our interest in the FA Cup, for which he was ineligible.

Since our exit to Sunday's opponents Newcastle in the middle of March, Andy has began to string a little run of games together and feels he will only improve as he gels with his teammates over a prolonged period.

"I am settling in a lot better and have found somewhere to live which always make it more comfortable," reflected the Republic of Ireland international. "Everybody is being good to me and things are going alright.

"It was a little bit hard to get going with the cup games popping up and having to sit and watch. They are gone now, we must concentrate on the league and get as many points on the board as we can.

"I still think there is a lot more to come from me. I've done okay but I think there is still a little bit of an adjustment period.

"There is a lot to get used to, playing with new players and playing against a better quality of opposition than I was before. It is taking me a little bit of time, but I am going out giving everything I have. I'm sure you will see some of my best form before the end of the season."

One adjustment the 22-year-old is having to make is no longer being the focal point of the team. While at Forest he was heavily involved in most of their possession, most things went through him and he was the taker of virtually all set pieces. It is, however, a change he welcomes.

"I know and it is one thing I am quite happy about, to be honest. I found it very difficult towards the end with it like that, the pressure is on you to create absolutely everything. Whereas playing with the quality players there is here, it is a lot more enjoyable to play."
