Robbie ready to roll
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).
Robbie Keane sees no reason why the lengthy gap between our fixtures should affect his recent fine form.
The brilliant striker has netted seven goals in nine games and has already forged a promising partnership with new boy Jermain Defoe - who has enjoyed a fine start with four goals in three games.
It would be easy to suspect that the last thing Robbie would want while on the goal trail is a two and a half week break, but the frontman views it slightly differently.
"I've been doing well but everyone needs a break every now and again just to recharge the batteries," he reasoned.
"Hopefully it does do that because it can be a long season. To have the break is only going to help us.
"Things have been going well for me personally, hopefully that will continue and I don't see why having a little break should stop it."
Robbie readily accepted the challenge of compensating for the absence of Fredi Kanoute while the 12-goal striker was away on international duty. He said he thrives on such challenges.
"I like pressure. Before Christmas I didn't score as many goals as I hoped I would and the only way to respond to that was scoring a lot more in the new year.
"Luckily for me I have been able to do that and have been taking my chances."
