Heurelho Gomes believes Tottenham have cultivated a feeling of togetherness that has been a key part of their success.
Gomes has seen a radical turnaround in Spurs' fortunes since he arrived from PSV Eindhoven in the summer of 2008.
Harry Redknapp took over as manager from Juande Ramos a couple of months later following a disastrous start to the season and last term steered the club into the top four of the Premier League.
Tottenham are now looking forward to their first UEFA Champions League campaign after negotiating a play-off round last month to take their place in the group phase.
Brazilian goalkeeper Gomes feels White Hart Lane is a good place to be at the moment and has paid tribute to the fans for making it so special.
"I love the atmosphere here," Gomes said in the September edition of the official club magazine Hotspur.
"I try to build a good relationship with the supporters because I like to feel together as one with them. They make the club what it is."
Gomes continued: "We operate in a very good atmosphere and that can only help.
"It ensures team unity and with it a feeling that anything and everything is possible. The team spirit here is great.
"It has to be that way because the Premier League is so tough. You must band together to succeed."
