These guys outstayed their welcomes at White Hart Lane.

There have been some great players on the books at Tottenham Hotspur over the years. When these players leave – for one reason or another, whether it be for a better offer, for a new challenge, because of injury or retirement – it’s generally a sad time. In the case of some others, their departures come (or would come, assuming they haven’t actually left yet) as a welcome relief for fans of the club.

These guys could strike a dead ball.

Every football team has its designated players to take certain set-pieces. Some teams have the same person taking corners, free kicks and penalties, other teams have different players for each, sometimes different players share the responsibilities, but there are always individuals who clearly spend more time practising certain set-pieces on the training ground and, as a result, often earn reputations as set-piece experts.

What the Lilywhites would do for the goals these guys provided...

Tottenham Hotspur are really struggling for goals this season. In eleven Premier League games, they’ve scored just fourteen times. To put that in to perspective, it’s the same number of goals that Crystal Palace have scored and only one more than the likes of Hull City, Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion have scored – all teams who Spurs should really be comfortably beating on all fronts.

Several Spurs stars seem to have completely lost interest.

Former Spurs chairman Alan Sugar has recently stated that he thinks it’s “disgusting” the way that some of the Lilywhites’ players are performing and behaving. The star of BBC show “The Apprentice” has hit out, in particular, at Spurs’ foreign recruits, saying that “I am no football expert but I have been watching the team for God knows how many years and you can see from the body language. A couple of guys work their hearts out and the rest of them, I don’t know what they think they are doing. They need to be read the riot act by the manager.”


10 Player Spurs Shouldn't Have Got Rid Of

The White Hart Lane club must regret these sales.

A large number of top players have left Tottenham Hotspur over the years. Sol Campbell, Michael Carrick, Dimitar Berbatov, Luka Modric and Gareth Bale spring to mind immediately – but those players had, in their minds, outgrown the club and effectively forced their way out. With that in mind, it was best to let them go, as their hearts were no longer with the Lilywhites and their enduring presence would only have disrupted the White Hart Lane dressing room.

The tough guys of White Hart Lane.

Tottenham Hotspur aren’t exactly known for being a tough football team on the pitch. In fact, all things considered, there hasn’t really been a team in English football with that kind of reputation since the “Crazy Gang” days of Wimbledon in the 1990s. The closest thing to a tough team today are the likes of Stoke City, who are known for being unattractive in their style of play and somewhat more physical than other teams.

Spurs let these guys slip through the net... regrettably.

Tottenham Hotspur are always the centre of attention when it comes to transfer windows. They attract the craziest of rumours – but that’s probably because they actually usually are very active in the transfer market in January and August. The club are linked with countless incoming transfers and potential sales, as the rumour mill goes crazy around White Hart Lane at every available opportunity.
