Yesterday was yet another awful day for Spurs fans as the team showed little spirit or fight and slumped to another dismal defeat. As if the game against Stoke wasn't a bitter enough pill to swallow, the quotes attached today to Emmanuel Adebayor are an absolute insult to every Spurs fan. Bad Attitude I have never and will never condone booing during a game as I believe it is counter productive, but when you have paid over a hundred pounds on a ticket, travel, food and drink to watch your team, to accuse fans of affecting the team is beyond a joke and frankly an insult. The negative atmosphere created by Tottenham's fans at their White Hart Lane home is damaging the players' confidence, says Emmanuel Adebayor. The atmosphere is not great at the lane at the moment but that has been the case over the last three years, and the boards handling of the 'Y' word was a fiasco that caused many to take a vow of silence. What Adebayor should be considering though before opening his big trap is why the fans are not exactly full of vim and vigour at the moment. Considering that Adebayor is one of the worst offenders when it comes to effort on the pitch, his comments are more hard to take seriously as a fan. Maybe if he and the rest of the squad improved their attitude on the pitch, the fans might just start getting behind the team more, but let's take yesterday's game shall we? Apart from Kane's early chance after five minutes, Spurs were abysmal from the first to the last whistle. It is ridiculous that we were outplayed by Stoke City, who with all due respect, are not the best footballing side we are going to play this season. When the team play so badly, they give the fans little to cheer about and that makes Adebayors comments not only insulting, but also lacking in any understanding of what is going on. Away the lads? "It might be better to play away at the moment," said Spurs striker Adebayor. "At least you know you are going to be having the majority of opposition fans booing, rather than our own fans." So, in Adebayors opinion, the team will play better away from home will they? What utter drivel. Yes, we got three points at Villa but the performance was nothing short of appalling. The fans who made the journey to Birmingham left happy with the points, but not many were happy with what they saw. I don't care which team you support but the away following always tend to make more noise than at home. Go to Old Trafford and all you hear are away fans. It's the same at City etc, etc. Never mind the b*****ks...... Adebayor does manage to say that it is not the fans fault or the players fault at the minute, stating that the players need to understand what the manager wants; He's a good manager and we just have to find a way so that we can try to understand what he wants to tell us and how he wants us to play and put that on the pitch." Is he serious?!!!! Pochettino has had the summer and we are now well into the season so if the players can't understand what the manager wants them to do by now, then I think we have a massive problem, and it is showing on the pitch. These players are paid hundreds of thousands of pounds and are in a very privileged position, so if they are going to cry at some booing from fans who pay most of their wages to watch their heroes, then they ought to consider a new career. I am not sure whether sacking the manager yet again is going to make any difference at all because the players simply don't have any passion for the club they represent. Tottenham Hotspur Football club is a mess from the very top to the very bottom. So far we have heard a player who gives nothing to the cause accuse the fans of causing players to lose confidence and our manager express concerns that the pitch is too small although that did not seem to affect us under Arry Redknapp did it? The mentality of the players has been questioned time and time again yet we see no change. In fact, the players at the minute look lost, the manager looks clueless and the club is going nowhere except backwards. Adebayor has been foolish in his comments and I for one think he should apologise to the fans rather than berate them. I hope to goodness he is sold at long last in January. Whatever Adebayor may think about the fans, whatever the manager may think about the size of the pitch, one thing is certain. This team, this manager and this club are in trouble and it seems no one wants to take responsibility.
