Pas calchimb onda. From the latin: Jury still out
I throw the decision to to the crowd. My personal feelings on this man aren't good.
(First a bitch about Jenas, now Chimsey ~ Harry, the staunch brigade will have you for breakfast and supper now., what kind of anti Spurs clown are you, dammit!...)
He came to us at what many thought was 'top dollar'. I thought and said loudly at the time he was value then. Barclays Dream team man. An investment. Initially he delivered. I liked the reliability and the calmness. And the training ground piccies that came through. Always a cheeky grin and playful sparring with Berba. Good stuff. Then came the attacking full back. Great. An extra dimension maybe. Some of the best ones are, you
The reality, was a quality player, but one who became an invariably unnecessary addition to our strike support. Classic Chimbonda for me was him running up the pitch BEYOND Lennon, achieving little of real worth. His ultimate forward pass was always the same, right footed, predictable, in~swinging nothingness.
My real issue is the then rag tag scarper back routine. How many complications and disasters would have been averted if he had just stayed in position?
And so to my final point. His goals. The last bastion, perhaps of his faithful.
Disinterested, quite frankly, Bonda Backers. I'd be a fool to say no to any goal, but by Christ, what a laboured wait we had for his.
How many versions of that 'Let's put it on PC's head on the far post rubbish punt routine' did we see go wrong before we got a goal? Clearly it WAS working in training. Otherwise there was no way it would would have been so ridiculously indulged in real games.
In summation, do I hate him? No, but I absolutely question what he has become. An undisciplined and too frequent liability.
Oh yeah, and then there's the "quotes."
"Kevin Keegan has approached me and they've offered me more money. "
"I am definitely leaving Spurs. It's all about the money. I don't care about the final, I don't care about the cup."
These have appeared everywhere and been retracted by no one bar Wee Willy his agent. Do Spurs fans seek better assurances than those of Willy? I do.
