What 'sparkling form' was that then? I remember one fluke goal for us and a shit load of shooting into row Z. Then there was a stream of inaccurate crosses. Is that what 'sparkling form' means? He did well for QPR last season and he had a couple of good games for England, but as far as I can recall he's done virtually fuck all in a Spurs shirt.

Beautifully put sir, most overrated player at the club in years.

This might sound weird but scoring that goal for england was really bad. All the non spurs fans/pundits decided he was amazing.

He is crying out for a new coach to actually work with him properly.

I think the Andros situation highlights how much you have to watch a player to really know if they are any good. As Teok said after the England games a lot of non Spurs fans commented to me what an amazing player he was (Bale replacement etc) and its only us who watch the team every week and follow our own players closely who felt that he might have been somewhat over hyped at the time, as it is unfortunately proving at the moment.

Funnily enough it's usually the other way round- fans of other teams thinking our players are shit when if you watch them every week you know what they are contributing.
