“I was in the comfort zone at Tottenham”

Jamie O’Hara is enjoying the opportunity of regular first-team football at Portsmouth.

The Tottenham midfielder moved to Fratton Park on loan during the sumer transfer window and is enjoying his time on the south coast.

He said: ‘I was in the comfort zone at Tottenham. I could have stayed and played matches here and there. But I am not the type of person happy to do that. I want to play every week.

‘I hate sitting on the bench and I hate watching players while I’m sitting there thinking, “I want to be out there”.

‘So that’s why it was a good opportunity to go and play football every week with Portsmouth. And yes, this experience, the whole situation, can only work in my favour.

‘It’s a sticky situation where we are bottom of the league. We are having to fight for every result, and that can only make me better as a player.’

Should Spurs sell O’Hara to recall him in January?

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. no, we should not sell him, loan him out for match experience then we can always have him there for back up until harry uses him regulary, which he will do because he rates him as a player

  2. We need funds to buy new players ie cover for Wilson. Spurs can’t keep spending without selling with the new stadium ahead. There are only a few players that would create a fee that do not fit in our first 11 or regular bench. Also we have loads of players on loan they will not all make the first 11

  3. Forget Spurs ,it is in Jamies best interest to go to Portsmouth where he gets regular 1st team football.Young guys have to grab oportunities when they arrive cause its all finished pretty quickly.

  4. Would be good to have a striker that could play up front on his own with a 5 man mid if needed. Not a big fan of that but keeping 4 quality strikers happy is a non starter. Better to have 3 with 1 able to play up front on his own. None of ours can do that role. Sell Pav and keane and get in 1 that can hold up the play and score goals. Not sure who would fit that role. Van Nist type player.

  5. Jamie O’Hara is left footed and left sided, and versatile. Why sell a commodity that is rare in the Premiership, let alone in the Spurs side. He is still only young will limited experience. He will only get better. He IS premiership standard – whether he will become as good as we need him to be remains to be seen. DO NOT sell him – loan him out to get his experience. Only sell him when he is bored and wants to leave, or we have the left side sorted!

  6. GUYS GUYS GUYS O`HARA IS NOT PREMIERSHIP STANDARD WE ONLY USED HIM IN EMERGENCIE`S AND HE DID WELL BUT ALLWAY`S FADING TO-WARDS THE LAST HALF OF THE SECOND HALF , MUNTARI WOULD BE THE MAN FOR THE D/MID NO QUESTION , PAVLYUCHENKO , JENAS , CUDICINI , KEANE , AND BENTLEY NEED TO BE SOLD TO GET FUNDS FOR ANOTHER TWO C/BACKS WOODY AND KING CAN`T BE COUNTED ON , BALE CAN DO A JOB AT O / LEFT LEAVING MODRIC TO OPERATE BEHIND THE TWO STRIKERS .

  7. If he can accept the utility role he can be vital for the side against tough tackling sides. If he wants to play week in week out, fair play to him. We have Gareth Bale on the left who has more potential anyway. The likes of Townsend and Rose also need a path into the team.

  8. Sell O’Hara. Great battery, and runs all day…but, can’t pass, can’t shoot, can’t tackle, etc. Buy Muntari, and play him side-by-side Palacios, with Lennon, Modric and Krancjar in front of them, rotating Defoe, Crouch and Keane/Pav (whomever doesn’t move in January). That would make us damn near impossible to break down, and some great passing options to our forwards.

  9. 1. O`Hara is one of our own lads. He stays as far as I am concerned
    2. If Man Utd can win the league with Fletcher, Ji Sung Park and O`Shea, then a good manager can definately include O`hara in the developement of a winning squad.
    3. O`Hara is all about attitude. I missed him in the last 20 against Birmingham. He could have made a big difference on the pitch against United, Chelsea and the last 30 minuits at Bolton.
    4. Martin Jol was smart enough to bring in Edgar Davids. O`Hara is my Davids. Bringing a fighting spirit to the team
    5. We tend to keep yelling and shouting when Sol Campbell, Berbatov and Keane leaves the club against our will. But when we have players who become part of our identity as a club, we so easily want to get rid of them just because we don`t consider them world class. Paul Robinson, Teemu Tainio, Steed Malbranque, Michael Brown, Paul Stalteri, Anthony Gardner. Jenas and Hudd have been out of favour for a while. Who is next. Bet it will be Michael Dawson.

    We need lads like O`Hara
