A couple of apocryphal but nevertheless interesting anecdotes regarding an up and coming haircut by the name of 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 training 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. Subsequently he dropped down the pecking order and I don’t think he made an appearance until November.
Interesting/excellent management tactics.
