Sky Sports pundit Andy Gray has never been one to hide his feelings and opinions on the game of football. So his recent thoughts on Tottenham’s summer spending are sure to make the North London faithful feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
He said: ‘One day Spurs are going to break into the top four but I don’t see it happening this season. Selling Keane is a big gamble and Bentley apart, I am not impressed with the players they have brought in.
‘If I was a Spurs fan I would be concerned. If Dimitar Berbatov (linked with a move to Manchester United) goes I would be worried about a lack of firepower.
‘Darren Bent has been scoring a lot of goals in pre-season friendlies but he seems to find it much harder to score against the big boys.
‘I know Spurs have been linked with Arshavin but I think he has been over-hyped. I’m not a big fan of Modric either. He looks ordinary to me but I can only assume Juande Ramos knows what he is doing.’ (Daily Mail)
Ordinary, over-hyped and concerned. These are three words that come out of Gray’s mouth when talking about Tottenham’s chances this season. Whilst most would agree that Modric is a bit of a question mark for the club since he’s never played in the Premier League before, most would tend to think that maybe these comments are a bit harsh considering the season hasn’t even started yet!
What do Tottenham supporters think about Gray’s comments? True or is there a more important reason to be upset with Spurs’ summer?
