Lewis Holtby: New Tottenham midfielder on cloud nine since arriving at White Har

Holtby, who left Bundesliga club Schalke for the Premier League in the January transfer window, has already played twice for Andre Villas-Boas' side.

The Germany Under-21 captain said: "I have been living my dream for the past few days.

"I am playing at an absolute top club in the Premier League.

"The day the transfer went through, I left for London with just a small suitcase and a few hours later, I was already on the Tottenham training ground, getting the traditional kick up the backside from my new team mates by means of welcoming me.

"That's the way things are here in London - hard but hearty."

The 22-year-old has already made an impact for Spurs and claims he is well suited to English football.

"I realised immediately that the speed and the toughness really is different here to the Bundesliga," he said.

"It's no place for the faint-hearted and the referees don't blow the whistle as often.

"The game is brutally hard, but that suits me and I really love it. I also loved my second game for Spurs, in which a dream goal from Gareth Bale meant I could celebrate my first win.

"I will never forget this game against West Brom. The fans sang a song for me for almost all of the second half.

"It was incredible and I really had goosebumps. I had never expected such support so soon.

"I've just been in England a week and they already have a song for me, who would have thought it?"

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
