Spurs’ Icelandic international Gylfi Sigurdsson scored his first Premier League goal in a Spurs shirt in Monday’s London Derby with West Ham. The close range strike could prove to be vital for the club at the end of the campaign and after the match, the player spoke of his immense relief.

“Getting that first goal, I feel 10 stone lighter,” Gylfi said. “This is why I came to a club like Tottenham, to play games like this and win games in the last minute.”

It’s been a mixed start to the player’s Tottenham career and he admitted himself that it’s been tough,

“I’m enjoying it, even though it has been quite tough – especially with me not scoring in the league. Hopefully this will give me a bit of confidence and a bit of luck and I can keep going,” Sigurdsson added.

After scoring seven league goals for Swansea at the end of last season, it’s been a slow start for Gylfi at White Hart Lane but could Monday’s goal be a turning point or is he always destined to be a fringe player while he wears a Tottenham shirt?




  1. His best performance in a Spurs shirt to date, He looked a threat when he came on, some nice touches and not afraid to have a dig, unlucky not to score with his first attempt, Great save by Superman, sorry Jaskalainen (sp)
    Would definitely give him the nod over Dempsey at the moment

  2. Hopefully it is a turning point for him. There’s a lot of love for Gylfi cus we can all see he is a good player, and he has dealt with being a bit part player with dignity – rather than causing trouble and angling for a January transfer.

  3. Gylfi’s hit the crossbar and the posts so many times! He’s a great player for us, when he came on against the hammers we suddenly looked like we had the momentum and energy with us! And don’t forget gyfli could have scored against Aston villa right in front of goal, but he passed it to gareth so gareth could get his hat trick!!
    He’s a good player for the club, hope to see him start soon.

  4. I truly hope for the lad that it was a turning point. He’s a great lad that put some impressive performances last season for Swansea. He has the potential and quality, he just needs some more self awareness.
