Patience from Postie

Posted on 31 October 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).

Helder Postiga insists that his first Tottenham goal can wait as long as the team are winning.

The Portuguese international striker was desperately unlucky not to get off the mark against West Ham in the Carling Cup on Wednesday when David James stooped low to his left to deny 'Postie' a memorable moment.

The 21-year-old is adament that the team comes first and that his moment will come sooner rather than later.

"I don't think I was very lucky against West Ham - in the next game I hope I will be," said Helder. "The team played very well - fantastic - a derby win is good for Tottenham.

"It is important that Tottenham win, not who scores," he added, before saying he enjoyed his first experience of a London derby.

"It is a fantastic, the atmosphere is great and I like these games."

Bolton are next at the Lane and in there ranks is Mario Jardel, a player Helder knows well for his goalscoring exploits with Porto and Sporting Lisbon.

"Jardel is a fantastic player - he scored a record amount of goals in Portugal."
