    Spot on.
    Imo this is what always happens with a DOF.
    I hate the idea. They should keep the position ie someone who locates and brings in players but lose the title and change it to Managers Goffer so theres no doubt who's in f in charge. Bring me what Ive asked for or piss off.
    There's no way AVB asked for that lot so who is it the club exactly who thinks they know better than the coach???
    Shit. Did I just defend AVB?
    Apologies lol.

    Yea lots of people do like to blame Baldini/Comolli /Arnesen or whoever but the truth is we really have no idea who identifies the players, who approves them and gives the green light to sign them, and whether the coach in charge really wants them or not. The coaches all say it's what they want but fuck knows if they mean it or not. At least with the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool you know the managers /coaches there all have full system over who comes in. Always a grey area with Spurs.

    Good point that it's not that much different when we haven't got a DOF.
    It's Levy isn't it lol.
    Been playing FIFA too much.

    You're actually right about this, although there's no need to apologize for defending AVB, even as a joke.

    Our squad would have gelled a heck of a lot faster had AVB been given the support, players and the end of the season, without the Sherwood/Ade undermining from within.

    Sherwood was an unmitigated disaster of epic proportions and putting him in charge was a catastrophic mistake that's put us right back to square one (actually, square ZERO considering we were doing a heck of a lot better at this point last season under AVB).

    I did overreact, but he's at least worse than Hitler :p

    This is the only problem I have. If you remove this line, then everything he says is completely justified and understandable.

    But quite simply, Harry Kane isn't a better player than Roberto Soldado. Sherwood has said this to try and rustle a few feathers. Everything he says Spurs related now is to do exactly this. When Townsend wasn't starting, all he wanted to talk about was how Townsend is a real man and should be in the team all the time.

    Not in a million years is Harry Kane going to achieve what Soldado has in his career - most notably being a regular goalscorer in the Champions League.

    What Soldado has done elsewhere is irrelevant. He has flopped at Spurs, and it is doubtful whether he will ever get his career back on track. Kane however is a bundle of potential who is already delivering the goods. I think he will go onto have a very good career, though sadly I suspect that you are right in as much as that he will not be scoring regulalry in the Champions League if he stays at Spurs.
  9. CrazyHeart
    How about we give Soldado a couple of runs of games in the league before making that call? He did a heck of a lot better than Ade in our last match, despite the deceptive result.

    Of course I'm right lol. I always am (its ok, the wifes upstairs) ;)
    Disagree with the rest of your post but you already know that.
    Do you think in 20yrs time me and u will still be arguing over AVB lol? :)

    Getting your facts right before you post helps.
    £30 million wrong.
    not scored wrong again.
    What you expect, I doubt anyone at the club gives a toss what you think.

    Sounds fair to me. He played the players who were outperforming him in training and they both scored goals where he didn't.

    Michael Owen has always been pretty scathing about Soldado and if there is one thing I'd listen to that guy's opinion on it's strikers that rely on movement and instinctive finishing.

    Bizarre. Results improve after Sherwood is appointed and dip after he leaves, and it is Sherwood who is an unmitigated disaster of epic proportions.

    Spurs career?
    1 season.

    In the PL (which was the gist of the thread) he has failed to score in seventeen games. He has though had three assists in eight games so far this season as far as i can find out. Well worth his 25.8 million transfer fee PLUS 4.2 million in bonus payment.

    I don't think the Club gives a toss what i think either, so you got one out of three correct.

    Wind ya neck back in and look at the facts yourself.

    Dude, there's nothing to argue about! Firing AVB when we did and put Sarah Palin in charge totally destabilized us... surely this is evident to even you at this point?

    But discussing this for the next 20 years? Yeah... probably... :)

    Decent shout! :D
