Video: Lamela gave Townsend a lesson and a nutmeg

SPURS vs CRYSTAL PALACE


I talked before and during the game about the difference between Erik Lamela and Andros Townsend and how Lamela was showing Townsend what he should have been doing at Tottenham instead of complaining. The mental attitude is key, at the moment Townsend is looking an ordinary player.

If he wants to move up a level he has to work on his mentality, he has shown, even while sitting on a substitutes bench, th mentality of someone who is not a winner, someone who will only try when he feels like it and doesn't see the day to day stuff as important.

Those who remember will recall me writing an article on how a substitute should not only be watching his team, but should be studying his potential opponent, or opponents. He should know what he is going to do in given situations, he will have been briefed before hand and shown videos of course, but he is a chance to bring yourself mentally up to speed with the game and your opponent on the day.

You should be coming onto the field totally prepared having done your homework on the bench, not sat watching the game as a spectator. Townsend used to warm up with more interest in what was going on in the crowd than the game. Then when he did come on he had to start to mentally adjust to the game so rarely made any sort of impact or positive contribution. That is solely a mental issue.

Erik Lamela was tackling back yesterday and was superb in defence, quite apart from his attacking skills, Townsend went to sleep and let Danny Rose run round him for a chance in the first-half, Rose unfortunately didn't shoot.

Spurs fans then delighted in and complained about Match of th Day not showing the Argentinian's nutmeg of the former Spurs winger. The crowd loved it and if you replay it, watch the players reaction in the background. It's Danny Rose and upon seeing it he puts his hands on his head in looking in awe at the spectacle.

Dembele, Lamela approach vs Townsend approach

SPURS vs CRYSTAL PALACE



At his pre-game press conference Mauricio Pochettino spoke about the changing role of players and what a manager expects. He spoke about respecting club staff as reported in the last article.

"We use full-backs inside like a midfielder, we use wingers like a full-back, we play with midfielders that can play like centre-backs, and centre-backs that can play like midfielders, or offensive midfielders that can play like a striker. Now we are a little bit mad, the managers, we like to invent a lot."

He spoke about Andros Townsend and what he had to say we revealing, not just about Townsend, but about all players.

"Andros, as we know, he is a classic winger. He plays wider but it is not about his qualities. He wanted to play more and feel important in the team. 
"Here at Tottenham it was difficult because he was sharing duties with Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela and Dele Alli and Nacer Chadli. If you wanted to play more, you can wait or find another place to play."

When you want to play more, you have to produce more on the training field. You have to show the application there. It is no different than working in an office, you don't get promotion simply as a matter of course, you have to show you deserve it, when a place becomes available. Your everyday performance then matters at decision time.

If Townsend wanted to feel important in the team then he should have improved his game rather than just do what he wanted to do. You either rebel because you are not getting your own way, which in his case demonstrated he felt he was more important than the team ethic clubs need to be successful. 

Mousa Dembele on the other hand holds his hand up, takes responsibility for not being selected and improves his game. Erik Lamela sorts his mental approach out and improves his game.

We come back to the importance of mentality again. We have heard about it throughout the Olympics from athletes, coaches, commentators. Talent gets you so far, to go the extra mile you need to apply the right mental approach, same as in any walk of life. You get what you make, your lot in life isn't given to you, it is what you create, you and only you have responsibility for it.

You can blast out and blame others or look at yourself and do something about it. It isn't hard to see the different routes players take, some like an easy life, some like to push themselves.

Respect - Townsend and Bentaleb

SPURS vs CRYSTAL PALACE



There are plenty of sentimental fans who want Spurs to keep players like Andros Townsend and Tom Carroll, see them given a 'chance', even though they get a chance in training every day. That kind of sentimental attachment to a player is no good for a manager who has to look at a situation with cold hard eyes.

Those same fans don't want us losing games, they don't want us dropping points, yet also want youth developed. We have found a manager who is clearly better than the average manager and perhaps tempers that desire some hold. He works with youth all the time so if he decides a talented young player has something missing or circumstances prevent their development, then their departure isn't as much of a blow to them perhaps.

Tottenham can't develop every player in the Tottenham team, thus some must fall by the wayside, Andros Townsend was one of those and today he'll be on the left wing taking on Kyle Walker and trying to provide crosses in traditional style. It is rare in this world of inverted wingers to see a left footer on the keft wing.

Pochettino let him go after 16 years at Spurs, a tough call but one that was needed to be made. He had little end product, he rarely scored and rarely created anything for others while being not up to the task defensively.

"I think the discipline is important. It is important that all players want to be part of the team, and play for the team. 
"The discipline and the realisation are very important for success .That is very important, to show respect for everyone at the club. That is one of the principle things that for me is very important. 
"I think that football is full of hard decisions. It is not about personal things or issues. We [Townsend and I] have spent nearly two years together here and had a good relationship. We took a professional decision. I think that it is not an issue. We split our ways and nothing happened. 
"As a manager, you take a lot of decisions every day. If a player's not happy because they want to play more, then they try to find another way to try to play. This is the difficult thing with football. Basketball is different - you can have a squad and change every five minutes or two minutes and everyone is happy. Football is different."

Respect for staff at the club is important to Pochettino. There is a chain of command and specific staff have to do specific jobs. Townsend showed disrespect to the fitness coach and that was the end for him. Adebayor, Kaboul, Capoue and to a lesser extent Lennon all challenged authority, all are gone.

We don't know the story but Nabil Bentaleb has clearly been left in no doubt he has no future at White Hart Lane. You get the impression that there has been a similar lack of respect for authority, rather than a purely footballing ability decision.

Former Spurs winger on the move

TRANSFER TALK

Winger on the move

It didn't take a genius to work out that Newcastle United signing a right winger would indicate that former Tottenham Hotspur wide man Andros Townsend had agreed a deal to leave the club. It is quite common that clubs line up a replacement before they sell a player. It makes business sense, otherwise other clubs know you are forced to sell and off a low fee or you get stuck with a player who you don't want.

Newcastle did just that completing the £12m move of Matt Ritchie from Premier League side Bournemouth before allowing Andros Townsend to depart for Crystal Palace. Perhaps he will fit into an Alan Pardew system. They activated his release clause that allowed him to leave should Newcastle get relegated, which of course they were.

Newcastle United managing director, Lee Charnley told the press there was nothing Newcastle could do.

"Naturally we are very disappointed to lose Andros but we are bound by the terms of his contract. 
"Given our situation in January it was a condition of him joining that we included a buy-out clause. However, I am sure now with Rafa as our manager we will not be in a position whereby we will need to agree to clauses of this nature in the future."

Links to a few stories, some of which you may not have seen

Good morning, a few stories doing the rounds, some have legs, some don't.

If anyone ever wanted evidence that the popular press invent stories then the Sun reporting that Tottenham want to swap Townsend for Wanyama has to be right up there. Newcastle are reported to have agreed a fee, a medical is reported to have been booked, Pochettino is reported to have intervened to accept a lower deal and Townsend has issued what amounts to a farewell message. 

The story will have been written and planned, but it turns out to be rather poor timing. It flies in the face of all the evidence from other national press, from ITK sources and from my own contact in Newcastle, a city I enjoyed a couple of years back when Kaboul picked up his injury. Tynemouth is well worth a visit on a Friday night. Townsend to Newcastle is expected to become official in the next 48 hours.

The News Hub:- 10 High Profile Tottenham Hotspur Supporters

The Comet:- Mr Tottenham Steve Perryman, Sir Geoff Hurst, ‘Chopper’ Harris and Spurs legends including Ossie Ardiles, Pat Jennings, Gary Mabbutt, Martin Chivers, Phil Beal, Keith Burkinshaw, Graham Roberts and Alan Gilzean will be coming to Stevenage for the Jimmy Greaves benefit show.


Evening Standard:- Tottenham interested in West Ham target Burak Yilmaz. However he is a 30-year-old and we don't buy average 30-year-olds so why are the Evening Standard reporting it as if we are chasing him?

Bet Bright Blog:- Dele Alli Spotlight of greatness

Tottenham have been linked with 24-year-old (25 in May) Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette but a French journalist thinks he is staying put at Lyon and that there is about a 1% chance of him leaving.



Blah blah blah. More noise. Forget the interview @JBurtTelegraph did when Laca said he wasn't moving. Give it 1% https://twitter.com/TeleFootball/status/691657013936439297 


Skybet have suspended betting on his next club. On other players they offer: 
  • Newcastle are 2/1 favourites to sign Berahino (Tottenham second favourites - 10/1)
  • You can get a measly 1/8 that Andros Townsend will sign for NUFC before Feb 3
Finally, I have been writing recently about the importance of fans and how they need to believe, as well as the club and players etc., to achieve success. it all creates the right environment surrounding a team. 

Those in a negative environment find it difficult to get out of and teams can get embroiled in a relegation battle that they really shouldn't be in. Mourinho was finding that at Chelsea this season, Everton have struggled with it and Newcastle are in the same boat.


Steve MacLaren has referred to the fans not doing their bit at Newcastle and making it easier for the opposition. If any side is to make their home ground a fortress then it has to be an intimidating atmosphere and that is created by the fans. Not by the vile hatred displayed by Stoke City fans but by the noise generated by fans who believe expressing their passion, their following.

Townsend to Newcastle at last

Andros Townsend finally appears to be on his way, not on loan as he wants but on a permanent transfer to his preferred destination, Newcastle United who will pay him £40,000-a-week as reported previously.

Newcastle offer Townsend £40K

The Guardian say Newcastle United have finally agreed a fee of £12-million, others are suggesting it is £10.5-million. The reports suggest that a medical will be taking place today. Townend was playing for Tottenham Under-21 side last night so presumably Newcastle were happy for him to get the game time to work on his fitness. 

Last night Sky Sports and Newcastle sources were claiming no fee has yet been agreed, although it was very close. 

Andros himself steered clear of answering questions about the move, although he has posted what appears to be a farewell message. 


"Been an absolute pleasure playing with the u21 boys the last 3 or 4 months!"

I'm sure a move will happen. As usual there has been a game being played through the media with both sides negotiating a fee that suits. Reports claim Newcastle were dropping interest to try and force Spurs to lower the price while quite frankly anything over £8-million must be considered a good return for the disappointing England international. We can't complain at a £12-million fee for him, I'd be happy with that.

Newcastle offer Townsend £40K, Fiorentina drop interest

Italian side Fiorentina enquired about the availability of Andros Townsend and enquired of the out of favour winger the sort of terms he would be looking for. Upon hearing Townsend's wage demands they quickly terminated their interest and moved to 24-year-old Cristian Tello instead. 

The Spaniard is currently on loan at Porto from Barcelona and Liverpool are said to be interested in him, mind you Liverpool are said to be interested in everyone it seems, usually a sign the press know nothing so just link players with clubs to create tabloid on-stories.

The Italian site TMW suggest Newcastle United are willing to pay £2.08-million wages per year to Townsend, that equates to £40,000 per-week. They still want to take him on loan with an option to buy, a deal that is of no use to Spurs and given a bid has been received of £14-million that is still his price at the moment, although most of us would suggest he isn't worth that. 

Newcastle is Townsend's preferred destination and he wants a loan move himself so Newcastle are pursuing other options at the moment such as Sandro Ramirez at Barcelona, the player we are also said to be following. The transfer window is a cat and mouse affair.

The much loved currency conversion of Townsend's offered wages are:

Townsend and Dembele

I read from a Newcastle website that they think Daniel Levy must relent and allow a loan with an option to buy but there is no benefit to Spurs in that so they have naturally looked at the deal from their point of view.

I have heard from several sources over the last few days that we have received an offer of £14-million for him. What nobody can confirm though is who it is from, the assumption in Newcastle United, but there is no confirmation of that.

His departure has no bearing on whether we buy a striker or not, if we can do a deal we will. To that end we are talking with several players agents including Saido Berahino and Moussa Dembele at Fulham. We have made a verbal offer for the WBA striker and won't be drawn into paying over the odds. 

The news is that a deal isn't looking promising at the moment so attentions elsewhere have been stepped up. The favourite now is the Fulham striker with a deal said to be close.

I also see reports that WBA are open to selling Berahino for less to Newcastle than they are demanding we pay, which clearly demonstrates ego has got in the way, thank goodness we don't have Jeremy Peace destroying our club just to satisfy his ego. 

Try and force a player where he doesn't want to go but don't sell to th club he does want to go to for th same money, stupid, utterly stupid, no way to conduct a successful business which explains why we are where we are and they are where they are.

Berahino, Townsend, Fazio

In many a fans world you simply pay what a selling club ask, of course that is no way to conduct a successful business. Buy low, sell high is a maxim that is not exempt from football.

It's all a part of negotiation, you both have a starting point, one side has a figure they won't go below, one side has a figure they won't go above. There are many more variables but that is the basics. Three transfers at the moment highlight these negotiations. Saido Berahino, Federico Fazio and Andros Townsend.

WBA seem to be demanding £23-million for Berahino, we don't think he is worth that much so unless they come down to what we consider a more realistic level given the length of his contract, then there won't be a deal. He may well be cheaper for other clubs with their chairman having to save face. I doubt very much that Berahino is going to be happy though if we sign someone else.

Andros Townsend puts the shoe on the other foot, we are demanding £14-million, which is rather high, however Newcastle United have to get themselves out of a relegation mess so ITK is suggesting they are willing now to stump up the full asking price. There need is so great they will pay over the top, they have tried putting in an offer and suggesting they won't pay over £10-million for him, but relegation will cost them dear so needs must.

Rederico Fazio is a player we no longer use and sevilla want him back. We read previously all the rubbish from press and fans who say the Spanish club will never deal with us again. Why do people write such garbage, business is businness, personal feelings have no place in it. We have someone they want so they are dealing with us.

Naturally they want him on the cheap, naturally we want to maximise our return. They want a loan, we don't, they want a low price, we don't. There has been plenty of talk of a quick deal but the window doesn't shut until the end of January so Sevilla may well wait until the very end as they feel we have to sell and it would therefore be for a lower price than we want.

There is no guarantee Sevilla will increase their offer to an acceptable level to us and no guarantee will will lower our valuation to a level aceptable to them. They sit sixth in La Liga, a way off the Champions League places, thanks largely to their away form where they haven't won a single game yet. Do they see Fazio as a priority or would they be prepared to wait until the summer?

We are in a position where we would like to sell but are not desperate to do so, we are not holding up signing a centre-back because we can't sell him so we don't have an incentive to reduce his price much right now. It is another of those games of chicken that are so often played during transfer markets.

I suspect WBA will not lower Berahino's price to a realistic level and we will sign someon else, that we will eventially find an acceptable fee with Sevilla for Fazio, while getting more than we should for Townsend.

Newcastle won't pay over £10m for Townsend

Newcastle won't pay over £10m for Townsend

There is plenty of talk surrounding Andros Townsend at the moment with clubs hoping to get him on loan which Tottenham are not interested in. The England international needs to be playing to stand any chance of making the 2015 European Championships and he isn' going to get any game time at Tottenham.

He, therefore, wants a loan move but Tottenham only want a sale as his value will have decreased in the summer as he enters the last year of his contract. He has reportedly turned down a move to WBA and Tottenham have reportedly turned down a £10-million bid from Watford. Other interested parties include Sunderland, who the press tried to tell us he was about to sign for and a host of midtable and lower table sides.

Sky are reporting that he favours a move to Newcastle United but Newcastle only wanted to take him on loan after they heard our price. The Geordie side are not interested in even paying £10-million (US$14.36m - AUS$20.57m - €13.27m) though. If I'm honest he is only worth about £8-million (US$11.49m - AUS$16.45m - €10.61m) now. We of course want £14-million (US$20.33m - AUS$29.25m - €18.69m). 

The Chronicle Live were reporting that Newcastle had dropped their interest and looking at alternatives. It has all the makings of going down to the wire with offers made on the last day.

Townsend training with Under-21's

Townsend training with Under-21's

Andros Townsend played his fifth Development Squad game in a row last night against Chelsea and scored a couple in a 4-5 defeat. He is effectively no longer a part of the first-team at Tottenham as he also trains with the Under-21 side.

This was confirmed by the commentators at the game last night so while we have Fazio who isn't playing so he doesn't get injured, Townsend is playing by personal choice for the Development side. It is important for him to keep his fitness levels up as if and when he moves he wants to be playing football regularly in a bid to force his way back into the 2016 European Championship squad. Time is running out with over half the season gone and no first team football for four months. 

I reported remarks from Pochettino in a previous article where he said players have to realise they are bought to train, not to play. The club hires a coach to decide who plays. Clearly then you have to do what the coach wants and not what you want, something it has been suggested Townsend is guilty of.

He doesn't want to leave Spurs and has offered to go out on loan for the remainder of the season, but he no longer figures in Pochettino's plans and thus the club will only consider a sale.

His valuation looks high at £14-million (US$20.33m - AUS$29.25m - €18.69m) and I don't see anyone willing to pay that for a player who no longer plays first team football.

Townsend demands loan, Spurs demand permanent transfer

Townsend demands loan, Spurs demand permanent transfer

As I have reported before Andros Townsend does not want to leave Tottenham as he knows any move will be a step down. Tottenham are clearly going places and he wants to be a part of that, however, he hasn't grasped what is required under Pochettino.

I have written before about his mentality and that when he comes on as a substitute he isn't mentally prepared, he 'switches on' only once he has stepped onto the field, which is too late. Obviously, this summer there is the 2016 UEFA European Championships which he wants to be a part of and to do that he needs to be playing football every week.

Townsend has very generously offered to go on loan until the end of the season to fulfil his desires, we have very generously told him he can leave permanently to fulfil ours. Ever window clubs circle us hoping to take fringe players on loan, which rarely happens now given how little benefit there is in it for us.

If we loan a fringe player out then we have to replace them and that has meant bringing in a loan player. If you sign a player to replace a loan player then you are stuck paying two sets of wages instead of one from July onwards and if you then can't sell the player you originally loaned out you have an unbalanced squad. That means somewhere in another position you have to leave yourself short.

Loaning Townsend isn't an option. He seems to want to do what he wants to do and not what the coach wants him to do, at least, that was the word from the training ground. Perhaps he just doesn't have the footballing brain needed to process the amount of information our system demands.

Whatever the reason he and we clearly haven't found his true motivation so although he may be trying, he can't produce the level of performance on the training field and in games that he doesn't yet know he can produce, which is the level we require of players.

Without motivation, you won't survive in this squad because as Townsend is finding, it finds you out.

Townsend and Carroll

WBA want Andros Townsend as do a host of other clubs where he may have the initial motivation to make an impact. His father I understand wants him to move while he wants to stay, but he is highly unlikely to figure given he rarely puts in a performance worth mentioning.

It doesn't take a genius to work out WBA have to sell before they can buy and that Berahino will be spoken about. What ever happened to WBA not wanting to deal with us? As I said at the time and have said ever since, it's garbage, utter garbage, personal feeling do not, should not, get in the way of business and like it or not every football club is a business.

Townsend has hardly played and that recalls to mind the words of Pochettino last summer, words that players will be well aware of come the January window.


"When you sign a contract as a player, you need to understand that you don’t sign to play, you sign to train. And then the club signs a manager or head coach to pick the players. This is football."


Still some people talk about runs in a team when we have shown this season that it is a myth. If you need a run in a team then you are a mentally weak player and that will manifest itself at important times, thus you will always be an unlucky loser. The training ground is where you do your work, the training ground determines who starts, you then have to have the mental strength to make your mark on a game.

Andros Townsend doesn't, Tom Carroll didn't against Warford. Given his chance, he was ordinary, no better than anyone else. One moment summed up his mental weakness for me. In the first half ten yards in our half towards the right he received the ball. There was nobody anywhere near him, space in front of him and he passed the ball backwards to Alderweireld who passed it out of play towards Trippier who had originally played the ball to Carroll.

Carroll should have been taking responsibility not passing it to a centre-back. He has the vision, he has the technical ability. He isn't a defensive midfielder for me but a more creative player further forward. He has a mental weakness, he should be taking control and running things if he plays in the defensive position, not delegating responsibility to a centre-back when there is no need to. It is just the wrong mindset and someone needs to work on it.

It is like he is too kind on the field, Dele Alli would have looked for a forward pass or moved forward himself in the exact same position. One cements his place, one just says I'm a fill in hen required. Which one would you trust to produce when the chips are down because that is the key. When the chips are down who is going to come to the fore and who do you have your fingers crossed for hoping they will come to the fore.

Little moments like the one I mention give you an insight into the answer.
