talkSPORT presenter Adrian Durham has once again decided to criticise Tottenham Hotspur.

This time, Durham has questioned if Spurs should be taken seriously as a football club following the match against PSV Eindhoven.

The Champions League fixture only attracted an attendance of 46,588 of an allowed capacity of 51,000 for the visit of the Dutch side, leaving thousands of empty seats plain to see who watched the match on television.

Durham has decided to attack the Tottenham hierarchy and claimed that they have mismanaged the club due to the fact that fans decided not to turn up and the Wembley playing surface is still considerably below the standards expected.

Despite coming back from conceding a goal in the second minute to win the game 2-1, the radio host claims that Spurs have massive problems in a scathing attack on the club.

He is well known for trying to antagonise listeners of his show in order to provoke them to call in.

He said on his Drive show on talkSPORT:  “Spurs in the Champions League, I thought this was supposed to be their promised land?” 

“Fans couldn’t be bothered to go, pitch was terrible again. It’s all because of Spurs’ mismanagement.

“And yet we are meant to take them seriously as a football club? There’s a lot wrong.

“Somebody Tweeted me today saying ‘You’ve got to hand it to them after last night, they went 1-0 down last night and could have easily have crumbled.’

“Really…Spurs? If they are in a situation where they easily crumble at home to PSV when they take the lead then Spurs have massive, massive problems.”

The victory at Wembley means that Tottenham’s hopes of progressing to the knockout stages are still alive.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Nothing to do with 4 matches in 9 days then!? Only so much money that ‘normal’ fans have to spend! And we are paying to play on a pitch that is shite, due to the NFL matches.
