Second in this new series is Josh Onomah, the young midfielder who has featured six times off the bench for us so far this season...
Josh: "Firstly, I made my debut in January against Burnley in the FA Cup - it was a proud moment for me and my family and a dream come true really. They were just the first step, then in July I went on to sign a four-year contract. I’ve always supported Tottenham my whole life and it was a dream come true to sign for years and devote my life to them. The best of it all was making my Premier League debut at home – it was an amazing feeling for me and a proud moment for me and my family. I just hope for many more – 2015 has been a great year for me and I can only wish for more. It feels like a dream really so hopefully I can keep going and make more dreams come true. I couldn’t celebrate my debut too much as we had training the next day but I went home with my family and had something to eat and celebrate with them. It was good."
Josh: "It depends where we are! If we’re at White Hart Lane I’d run over to where the academy players are because growing up that where I was watching Tottenham play so I think I’d run over there and celebrate there."
Josh: "I’d say Mousa Dembele – he’s impressed me a lot this season both in and out of possession – he’s a midfielder that can do both things which is really good. Also, Christian Eriksen because he plays in that number 10 role and he gets lots of assists and goals. Combining them would make a very good player!"
Josh: "I look up to Mousa Dembele because I think we’re kind of similar players in the sense that he likes to beat players and tackle and get forward to score goals. Off the pitch he’s a good person, he’s friendly to me and we get on well."
Josh: "Definitely not. We’ve been very good this season, especially in the Premier League. We’re still unbeaten (in 13 games) and we’ve got positive momentum going into this game and every game we want to do well and win so we’re comfortable."
Josh: "The day before a game we usually watch a video to see how they play and how they work – nothing too much. Mostly it’s about us and how we’re going to play. We drew against Arsenal and Chelsea so a win now would be positive momentum for us. A win is definitely what we’re looking for. Right now, I’m just learning the way of first team football and if I come or start I will look to make an impact no matter what. I need to score, I’m desperate to score and scoring tomorrow would be a dream come true."
