A couple of apocryphal but nevertheless interesting anecdotes regarding an up and coming haircut by the name ofย Joshua Oghenetega Peter Onomah.

Onomah is a of course a local lad and Tottenham through and through. However the 20 year old is finding the whole process of paying his dues rather frustrating.

Whilst discussing the ‘them and us’ set up at Hotspur Way, Gladys mentioned that it is young Onomah in particular who is desperate to get into the Groovy Gang, and become a fully paid up member of the first team.

It may not just be the change in sock colour that’s driving him.

The lad is contracted until 2020, that deal was struck in February of 2016. Therefore his situation is such that an extension is unlikely unless he’s promoted from the Development squad. He’s a sufficiently protected asset.

Glad tells of the Enfield born boy rocking up to trainingย at the beginning of last season was reprimanded by Poch in front of the whole team for going out and buying a brand new Bentley and driving it into the first training session.

He was told to stop being billy big b______s and knuckle down. He was sent home and told not to drive the car in again.ย  Subsequently he dropped down the pecking order and I don’t think he made an appearance until November.

Interesting/excellent management tactics.

    I’m surprised he didnt go to training after in a yellow Reliant. I’m sure Poch would’ve laughed.

    What cars do the other players turn up in?
    Is there some sort of system where the youths have to drive Vauxhall novas, the squad players vw sciroccos and the 1st teamers 190 mercs?

    • gloster1861 July 5, 2017 at 1:23 pm

      They park the Bugatti’s in the Asda car park and walk in.

    Its the socks that makes me laugh!

    You can make anything a desirable status symbol if it is sought after .

    I wonder if the old sweaty socks turn up on eBay, or are they all accounted for and burned ceremoniously in a Viking Funeral?

      Is the pitch softer and bouncier than normal? Is it the right shade of green?

  • UnkleTaff July 5, 2017 at 1:12 pm

    I see we’re being linked with the Swansea defender Alfie Mawson. I hope we sign him.

    I have no idea if he’s any good or not but Alfie Mawson is a pwoper footballer’s name and that’s more than good enough for me.

    • Harry Hotspur July 5, 2017 at 1:15 pm

      If he’s got a sensible haircut and no tattoos, he must be our number one priority.

    • gloster1861 July 5, 2017 at 1:19 pm

      Only if he goes by Alf, none of this poncey Alfie nonsense.

      • Harry Hotspur July 5, 2017 at 1:20 pm

        If he can’t abbreviate his own name without annoying me, he can fuck himself.

          “…asking a Mawson if he knows anything about chandeliers is like asking Mr Kipling if he knows anything about cakes.”

    A rather effective way to tell a player to remove his head from his anal orafice.

  • gloster1861 July 5, 2017 at 1:04 pm

    Should be a fleet of chauffeur driven Silver Ghosts to safely deliver their previous cargo to and from Hotspur Way. With men carrying red flags walking in front of them.

    • gloster1861 July 5, 2017 at 1:04 pm

    It`s not like when I was a kid. Mum made me walk all the way to the servants quarters to get the limo to school. Don`t know they`re born.

    How reading that made me smile. Football needs more people like Poch. Perhaps not back to the days of painting goal posts and cleaning boots, but something to say football is about graft and not just talent, headphones and pimped rides.

    What an idiot, seriously does his memory not go back to Adebeyour getting the tin tac for driving a brand new Rolls Royce into Hotspur Way (and of course generally being a lazy cunt) and being labelled a bad influence on the kids?
    First class twat, but if he has learned from that then ok we can move on ……
    Any chance of a petition for a boycott of the juve game H? Outrageous prices for a friendly! ๐Ÿ‘น

    • gloster1861 July 5, 2017 at 1:01 pm

      If Ade had put a shift in regularly and used his talent, he could have arrived in a Harrier jump jet as far as I’m concerned.

      • JuandeInternational July 5, 2017 at 1:10 pm

        I’d have given him piggy backs if he played like he did vs chelsea back in 2013.

  • UnkleTaff July 5, 2017 at 12:39 pm

    Well-played Pochettino.

    I’ve got a lot of time for young Josh but if this Bertie Big-Bollocks attitude isn’t knocked out of players early on then it can fester until it becomes a problem.

    Hopefully Onomah has taken the message on board and decided to knuckle down.

    • gloster1861 July 5, 2017 at 12:40 pm

        Bloody Levy, the place isn’t even serviced by a reliable bus route!

      But where is he now?

        Metz.

  • gloster1861 July 5, 2017 at 12:35 pm

    So how are players meant to arrive at Hotspur Way? Do they buy five year old Astra’s? Come on a push bike? Uber taxi?

    Seems rather odd to me, also would have thought they all have expensive cars.

  • Vikingyid July 5, 2017 at 12:35 pm

    looked really good in the u20 World Cup, I know it’s only boys but he was a stand out performer and looked more promising In CM rather than being stuck on the wing

    • gloster1861 July 5, 2017 at 12:37 pm

      Me too. Poch keeps playing him wide, and he clearly isn’t a wide player. Round peg, square hole. He looked much better and involved playing as a CM.

  • TriniSpurs July 5, 2017 at 12:30 pm

    He’s crap. Flog him in league cup and sell him to Brighton in Jan.

  • AccringtonSpurs July 5, 2017 at 12:27 pm

    That’ll do it.
