    Big Deal, He rarely plays a full game only enters as a sub less than 20 minutes pergame. If he had even scored 3 goals? He is not getting the playing time nor does he gets the recognition in Tottenham, that he deserves. Subsequently he has even lost his "touch". It was a major faux pas leaving Fulham for the wrong club and the wrong coach.

    As if staying at Fulham would have been a better move Philippe? No moving to Spurs made a good deal of sense, I'm not going to argue about AVB, but not going to say Liverpool, who are clearly not likely to return to playing in Europe this year, wasn't much of a better option and it's looking like Spurs WILL get to play in some level of European tournament action, which was clearly a major reason Clint made the move in the first place. Add to this not having to pick up and move from London, which that cited move to Liverpool would have made necessary and this seems at worst a sideways move... but one that gives him a chance to play on a bigger stage than Fulham was ever going to afford him. Face it, he was and is of an age that he HAD to make a move this year or never get to a larger club, and Spurs are precisely that, a larger club... and moving to a larger club means you are no longer the big fish in a small pond, he will see action and it is then up to him to do something to make AVB play him, besides last season was truly a career year and that in and of itself made the move timely... now it's time for him to stay healthy and with some luck score some goals with the NATS now that the Final round of World Cup Qualifying and Gold Cup play is about to take place this year. ...
