  • I was watching MOTD just purely to see the Blackburn thrashing and Spuds losing. While watching the yids lose I was also mystified by Lennons reactions. I initially thought that the player was acting angrily because he was being allowed to play because of the injury. However reading todays papers and Harry's comments I am shocked.

    How can a player refuse to play because he is more worried about International duty. I recognise he has broken into the squad but actions like this can only make him lower in the eyes of his current manager and cappello.

    Very poor attitude and team spirit. If he was able to carry on then carry on if his injury was that serious then I am sure Harry wouldnt risk it. After he is his player. Players such as Terry, lampard, Rooney, Gerrard and even Walcott would have to be dragged off the pitch when playing for their clubs and take every opportunity to play for their clubs as well.

    This reminds me of Bentley dare I say. First he refused to listen to Wenger, then he refused to listen to Ramos and refused to play for the U21 england team for seniour duties. Now look where he is.

    I know Harry is desperate and will most likely lick Lennons Ar"se because he has been one of their best players, but we all know if that was any other top four manager STRAIGHT TO BENCH OR RESERVES!!!

    I wonder what the spuds make of this..................

    • Didn't missus Harry get rated higher? LOL, that Redknapp always cracks moi up!

    • Vito I dont even regard you as a serious poster or worthy of a reply because most your stuff you just cut copy paste. and half the time you never answer peoples post regarding so.

    • Don't get it?

      Lets break it down for you.

      Bents' scoring record is almost exactly the same as Nicholas Bendtner.

      Both played 60 games, both scored number of goals in the teens.

      Bent cost £16.5m

      Bendtner cost £200k

      Bendtner still only 21yrs old

      Bent sold to Sunderland for £10m (with possible uplift) two seasons later. Has since played 10 games, and scored 8 goals.

      I wont compare Walcott with Bent as Walcott doesn't play as striker. Even so, he has still scored 8 league goals in 60 games, cost £5m (rising to £12m) and is only 20yrs old so still in development.

      The point stands. Bent was a flop at Spurs. Everyone else knows it but you.

    • Tutt Tutt! I really wish "Thursday afternoon every third week of the month" you would learn to be a little less argumentative and remember who is boss here and just bite your lip and agree.

      Dont go getting all upset and begin thinking you wont be doing the dishes either if Spurs lose today.

      Walcott WILL prove to be the tits, you,ll see, and when you do i expect a full grovelling apology forthwith.

    • I have to say I am mystified as to how this boy get into the England team
      He cannot put a proper decent cross over AKA Beckham
      not any of the so called beckham substitutes are good enough that is why cappello will most likely take beckham to South Africa
      IMHO 40 mins of a slow beckham is worth 90 of either Wright Phillips or Lennon
      And walcott seems very fragile to me which is quite sad as we paid 12 million for him I believe

    • Bent just needed a arm around him ,a cuddle now and then ,a whisper in his ear ,and look what happens ,we all need a helping hand to guide us along our way .

    • i dont get it?
      unless u mean bent but then he finished our top scorer so i dont think he was a flop.
      a lot of spurs fans didnt like him because he isnt the most pleasing on the eye but i liked him because he scored goals regularly.

      so it was short,sweet & straight to the point.
      but the point is incorrect so carry on admiring fabon

    • Short, sweet and straight to the point that John.

      I doth my cap in adoration.

    • Or sell them to Sunderland.

    • dont worry vito, when u spend a lot on a player & he doesnt live up to it- u have no choice but too over exagerate anything half decent they have done.
