Michel Vorm 'happy' with first season at Spurs despite limited appearances

Tottenham's recent signing from Swansea picked his favourite moment from the season just gone.

Michel Vorm has been discussing his first season at Tottenham with the official club website, and the Dutchman was very much happy with how he settled in and his game time, despite playing second fiddle to Hugo Lloris for much of the season.

Vorm played 14 games in total last season, though had to wait until a knee injury to the Tottenham captain before he could make his league debut, which wasn't until March 21.

"Everything was obviously new to me, so the season was special," Vorm told the Spurs website. "Since the day I came in, everybody was very welcoming and that gave me a lot of confidence. It seemed like I was one of the boys straight away and that’s always a good feeling. We obviously reached the Capital One Cup Final and I played most of the games, then I had a spell of four games in the Premier League at the end of the season – so it’s been a bit different to what I had been used to but at the end of the day I’m happy."

The former Swansea goalkeeper revealed that his personal highlight of the season was the Carling Cup match against Nottingham Forest. It wasn't just famous for Vorm's debut, but was also the time when Ryan Mason really announced his presence in the Spurs side - as he helped Tottenham turn around a deficit to secure a 3-1 win, and a long march to Wembley began.

"My first game at White Hart Lane was special," Vorm said. "When I started the warm-up for my debut against Nottingham Forest it was a nice feeling and that’s something I won’t forget.

The 31-year-old went on to emphasise how impressed he was with the support at White Hart Lane for that tie.


"For me, that game, while not the toughest, was very important," he added. "If most teams in the Premier League played at home to a team from a lower division in the early rounds of a cup competition the stadium wouldn’t always be full, but White Hart Lane was packed that night and that says it all. The atmosphere at the cup games has been amazing."
