Fredi on five-goal show
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).
Fredi Kanoute feels the five-goal show against Southampton on Saturday was a performance waiting to happen.
The team have clicked nicely into gear in recent weeks, with the home victory over Middlesbrough providing a platform following a sequence of six Barclays Premiership games without a win.
What did prove something of a frustration for Martin Jol and the boys was, in the 1-0 away wins over Blackburn and Manchester City, further chances were not converted during periods of dominance to really seal the victories.
That all changed against the Saints, chances were taken which led to a real confident display from the team that sent the fans home happy. And the players, pointed out Fredi.
"I am hugely delighted. We played very well as a group and, obviously, what we were missing before was goals, but we scored plenty here.
"I think the performance was coming, for a few games we have played very well but needed to score more. It was enough though and we shouldn't complain because we won. This made it four in a row so I don't think there is much to say other than we played well."
Fredi's goal against Southampton made it three in four league outings for the striker, due reward for his selfless overall play.
"Of course it is always good for me," he added. "Personally though, I get as much pleasure from giving an assist as when I score myself. It is something I like to do and I was really delighted."
