+Robbie on Reidy
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).
While we'll have to wait another week for a further glimpse of new boy Andy Reid in action, his Republic of Ireland teammate Robbie Keane knows very well the qualities the January recruit will bring to the side once bedded in.
'Reidy' made his debut against Portsmouth nearly two weeks ago before being sidelined due to our double-dose of FA Cup action. The leftie, signed on deadline day along with Michael Dawson, is cup tied and missed out against West Brom as he will against his former club Nottingham Forest on Sunday.
"He is a quality player and it must have been the longest running transfer link in history," considered Robbie on the capture of the 22-year-old. "It went on for a while and it is good the club have managed to seal him and Michael Dawson. They are two quality players and a good addition to the squad.
"I know how Andy plays, he is a skilful player who can beat people and score great goals. He will suit the style of play at Tottenham."
Robbie feels that the diminutive wide man will bring trickery, width and balance to the side down the left flank and dismisses any notion that he will take time to adapt to Premiership combat.
"He will bring all that, most people have seen him play and clubs have been after him. It's good he's here and will bring all that, some people might ask if he can do it in the Premiership - but he has already done it at international level and there is no reason why he can't perform at Premiership level."
