Perry in his prime

Posted on 3 December 2001  - 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).

Chris Perry afforded himself a little pause when asked the question of whether he is playing his best football since joining the club.

"I think so," pondered Chris, who has cemented a place in side since Gary Doherty's broken leg against Torquay back in mid-September.

"I'm probably playing the best football since I left Wimbledon."

Before that time, Chris was the picture of frustration as he possibly contemplated a future away from the Lane after failing to secure a regular place in the first team during pre and early season.

"I was just frustrated at the start of the season with not being in the team," he reflected. "It's difficult, but luckily I got my chance with a few injuries and I thought 'it's the only chance I'm going to get and I'm going to have to take it'."

Seize his chance Chris certainly has, the phrase grabbing the bull by the horns certainly springs to mind with the former Dons favourite impressing in what has been a pretty much impregnable defensive unit.

"Luckily I have," smiled Chris, before looking ahead to the encounter with Bolton.

With having former Don Dean Holdsworth in their ranks, Sam Allardyce's troops have been reported to have adopted a few Wimbledon team bonding tactics to assist on their return to the Premiership.

Chris feels that anything that bonds the players can only be a good thing as the season develops.

"It's always good with any side, the team spirit. If you can get all the players pulling in the same direction it really does help.

"It also helps when you're down and when you go away you're strong and you stick together and it makes you more difficult to beat.

"If you look at their away record it's very good.

"If you've got 11 players who've got a great spirit between them it's like having an extra man out on the pitch and obviously that can help."
