To be fair SB those who want King out are in the minority on this board.....most of us think he deserves a contract for life.
As for Jenas and Bent......well one swallow does not make a summer..............I stand by my views on both of them although I did encourage people to give Bent the benifit of the doubt earlier on in the season. I thought he deserved a run of games to show what he could do.............for me he hasn't grasped the nettle.
Jenas falls into that group who were bought for their 'potential' but never fulfilled it. He's an average Joe with the odd flash of quality (just to annoy the hell out of us). Id rather watch someone in his position who doesnt toy with me!!
Its ironic that those 3 were so influential (if you can call 2 taps a stroke of genius)....but thats all for me......ironic.
I agree with you EY. If you look at the game as a whole both Jenas and Bent were not up to the job. Apart from the goal Jenas did very little and Bent was just there to tap in a ball that was going over the line anyway.
King was good but we know he is good. BUT he is only good when he is on the pitch. The issue is that he can only make some games and that upsets the balance of the team.
I think Layla is trying to score some cheap "see I was right all along" points and its not very becoming is it.
Good post Ey.....Jenas has had nearly 4 seasons with us now,which i feel is more than enough time for him to show us how good he is EVERY GAME.
As for Bent he was never good enough for Spurs,and at the time we didnt need another striker.Im sorry like most spurs fans ive tried to give him a chance this season,but he doesnt seem to be on the same wavelength as the players around him.
And SB im sure youre wrong about most of us wanting rid of King,and im sure he will be with us for along time yet.Its looking likely that we wont have european football next season,so we will be back to playing 1 game a week and hopefully Ledders will be fit enough to play more pl games for us
