For the past two going on three years we all have been waiting for the speedy winger Andros Townsend to showcase his talent. At times he did show the Hotspur faithful he could handle the task at the wing. Unfortunately for Andros, I have little faith that he can make it to the next level. Clearly I may offend others at the lane; I do this in only to get the discussion out in the open. With that said I will give a few reasons why I see Andros as a player belonging too a lower sitting club.
Townsend is a player you can easily read with the ball. Mostly he tries to outrun his defender only to give a pitiful cross toward goal or lose out to the defender. The international comes off as a single minded player, on the pitch you sense he has issues with his awarenes & football iq. Too make matters worse is when the international Gets to the final third he has no build up play. Andros will cut in no closer to the goal than 25 yards from goal an swing with his left foot. “ball is heading toward the fans.”
Andros Townsed just is not a player that can wait an build a set play with patience. What kills me the most is his lack of defending; complete game over for me. The Internationals stats for 2014-2015 are 2 goals and 2 assists from 754 of playing time. He clearly isn’t getting the playing time needed too feel loved at white hart lane, so why not just leave.
With levy who in all honesty isn’t that great of a business man, regardless of what every article says about his ability to do deals. Over the years his resume for purchasing players & hiring managers and technical directors that do not fit the same vision are counter productive. In my opinion we should be chanting for him to get the boot. Levy may have bought some time with new NFL deal. Besides that almost anyone can haggle a deal for Andros to leave the club, suitors such as Aston, stoke or even Watford could pay 8-12 million pounds for the lad. It just depends on the club you are dealing with. Remember Roy Hodgson added some value with that call up for our lad. It’s time we reek the benefits.
With all that said; Andros Townsend is a decent individual player at times but at this moment with Tottenham he does not make any case for himself to be on the pitch in our shirt on opening day.
