Tottenham footballer and training ground subversive Danny Rose has issued the following statement.

“Having had time to consider my actions I acknowledge now that the timing and manner of what I said was ill-judged.

“My words were not meant to offend and for that I would like to apologise to the chairman, manager, my team mates and the fans.

“I’d also like to wish the lads good luck ahead of Sunday’s game against Newcastle.”

Are we all friends again and nothing happened, or is this merely an attempt to weasel out of a 拢130,000 club fine for making an unsanctioned interview?

Also, there was nothing in there about him acknowledging that he was in fact a bit sh*t before Pochettino coached him.

    He’s not saying that he doesn’t believe in what he said….the worrying thing for me was the Suns article claiming Rose went to Hotspur way yesterday and was lauded as a hero by the rest of the squad….that’s more concerning. But then it is the Sun…

    • James147 August 11, 2017 at 3:04 pm

      I don’t believe that happened in a million years. Can you imagine them all applauding and cheering, then they look at Poch and go “Right boss, what’s first today?” 馃檪

  • BrizzleSpur August 11, 2017 at 2:07 pm

    Rose’s comments remind me of a certain private Hicks in the film: Aliens. “Game over man, game over!” I think he ‘broke’. Lost his nerve and panicked. And he’s not alone in that. I’ve read so many comments on here that effectively echo his sentiments. My gripe is down to the fact that he’s nowhere near a position from which he can fairly criticise. Overall, I think he’s caved under pressure from an outside source.

    The intent is to destabilise. We have a squad full of players that other teams want. Players who are potentially worth hundreds of millions of pounds and Levy has them tied up in his basement. If Walker is worth 拢50M, wtf is Kane worth? Alli?

    He’s talking like a man who has already left the club. Chelsea player probably very soon.

    I suspect that we all inwardly agree with what Danny Rose had to say but why did the little c..t voice his feelings in public and at this time is beyond me especially talking to the Spurs hating sun so called newspaper. It’s treasonous at best. No disrespect intended to intelligent people of the North of England but is Rose simply just a thick Northern twat oblivious to how the club is treated by the no class press? You can guarantee that the nonces in the press will have another field day, selling off our players to all and sundry in their pages, which club is talking to this players representative and whos’s looking to fly the nest etc., Levy’s intransigence is going to cost us dearly.

    you bunch of soft light hearted fanny flaps!! get over it we need him!
    He has only fucking said what we all know and what some of you spend 24hrs day pissing about! also probably what some of the players in that dressing room are thinking ( but you probably wont want to hear that as some of you may commit suicide!). im sure they have dealt with him as they should – what more do you want?
    stone him to death??

    Bring in the next clown i hear??? interesting who might that be? all be it we have a whole year to find this out/scout aka ( do fuck all) however based on our transfer movement i wouldn’t be too hopeful of his replacement being any better then rose. and if anyone is now claiming Davies is now the messiah!!!……. seriously i would love rose to stay!

    Point is things wont change so players will want to leave, even your precious Ali and Eriksen at some point will be unable to resit those sinful urges – and i do remember the abuse he received 2014 and it was brutal! why should he love us like that! you think if we bring in a quality player he is going to pledge his life to the badge and never want to leave? yes it was unprofessional but realise the difference between a fan and a professional footballer.

      Lloris
      Alderwereild Verts Wimmer

      Rose has dropped a clanger here. Time for him to go be a big-shot somewhere else.

  • VincentianMagic August 11, 2017 at 12:57 pm

    Hard to know what to do with this one.

    Personally I think it depends on the damage done within the camp. If Rose is willing to buckle down and his teammates forgive, then I say keep him at least until January and see what transpires.

    We are having a hard enough time finding any players to join, so we could do without another headache.

    Hopefully one of Cancelo/Perreira will join, together with a decent CB (Sanchez is a beast), CM (probably Barkley) and mobile CF/wide attacker (Simeone, King or Balde would all be worth a punt at this stage).

    If we can keep what we have and add these four positions then we’ll be ok despite Levy’s best efforts to fuck it up again with late moves in a market that is awash with money and clubs that don’t need to sell, even at the11th hour.

    • YidInExile August 11, 2017 at 1:00 pm

      • VincentianMagic August 11, 2017 at 1:07 pm

        I’m guessing that too. It’s an awkward one as the money has gone crazy. We are reliant on loyalty, a desire to play for Spurs and buying into the Poch vision.

        It’s sad really as with 3-4 decent additions we could have a real tilt at the league and perhaps win one of the cups. Unfortunately the club likes to shoot itself in the foot at the exact moment that things look rosy (no pun intended).

  • TopOfThePochs August 11, 2017 at 12:40 pm

    Lets get this right from the start, Roses motivation is purely money. Vast amounts of money.
    This isn’t a problem – but to dress it up in a calculated way, to be carefully crafted to inflict maximum damage to THFC and its reputation 3 days before the season, in an ‘exclusive’ for a rag with a loaded agenda like The Sun, is disgraceful.
    If he want to earn even MORE obscene amounts of money then just say so, don’t try to justify is with little decisive narratives mate.

    Yea you got stick before Poch moulded you – because you weren’t very good.
    Does he think he’d have got better treatment with THOSe performances if he’d been at Utd or Chelsea?
    Whats more to make a blanket comment like that suggesting that ALL Spurs fans criticised him is fanciful. There were many who still had faith in him. Thats what you called having a selective memory to suit an agenda – i.e to get outta dodge while the money is being dangled. Don’t try and wreck the club who has nurtured you for 10years when a Utd would’ve binned you long ago.

    Whats more suggesting he wants to play ‘oop narf’ because you’re a little bit homesick is an insult to ones intelligence. If it was that big an issue then why would he a Walker been down south for the last 10years? Why tie yourselves into another 5 year less than a year ago?

    Apparently after agreeing to his current salary, and then after a few months going off Tom 7 Dick for the rest of the season, he feels that he’s earned an increase from what he saw was very acceptable then?

    Send him on one of our charitable visits amounts people who really do know what its like to live in misery. I’d suggest he go and pay a visit to the ex Grenfell Tower residents & pour his heart out how he feels undervalued at only being paid 拢165,000 a week and live in his southern squaller of a mansion.

      Apparently Rose’s uncle is the agent who negotiated walker’s 150k a week deal at Man C. Rose’s dissatisfaction was as sure as night following day once Levy agreed to sell walker to the oil-rich title favourites.

      • TopOfThePochs August 11, 2017 at 12:48 pm

        Yep, also the agent who negotiated BOTH of their contracts last year within a week of each other. But Roses own Uncle saw fit to value Walker at around 10K a week MORE than his nephew apparently, if figures are to be believed.

        If he’s got beef then he should be asking his agent why the hell he negotiated such a poor contract for him.

        He wasn’t forced to sign it. If he’d refused he’d have 2 years left right now and be able to leave as Levy would want maximum value from him than left him leave on the cheap next summer.

        • Ronan August 11, 2017 at 12:53 pm

          It was a big mistake letting Man C have one of our top full backs, doubling his salary. Was only ever going to spell trouble.

  • Randy Lee August 11, 2017 at 12:39 pm

    problem is if we decide to pay these players 拢150k each week , the other rich clubs will still double it!

    anyways i forgive him because boy will we need him this season, all be it his last potentially.

    Hope not!

      Hard line, Trump wrote it.

  • Freund or Foe August 11, 2017 at 12:38 pm

    It`s done now. Even if he stays with us for the upcoming season, we know he`ll be off soon enough.
    I just hope the delicate little flower can handle the shit he`s going to get, judging by his interview, I would suspect it will tip him over the edge.

    • Horndog August 11, 2017 at 12:39 pm

      I am climbing out of my pissed soaked bed to agree with you, Fofty.

    • Randy Lee August 11, 2017 at 12:41 pm

      abusing the best left back we have at the club? nah get over it!

        I don`t think I will actually, but thanks.

      He’ll sack his uncle and hire Diane Abbott as his agent.

    I鈥檝e said it once, I鈥檒l say it again, far be it for me to tell him how to spend his money, but Uncle Joe is a farken billionaire and yet he and Daniel only look at Spurs as just another cash cow. I鈥檓 not saying spend their entire fortune but Joe is in a position to be remembered as someone as important to the history of the club as anyone, especially if they had spent just a bit more money to win us the title once in the last two years. They still have time but I won鈥檛 hold my breath, and if things unravel soon they will lose their chance

  • McG 鈿解毥 August 11, 2017 at 12:29 pm

    @ FOF:

    I think he’s right with a lot that he came out with, if he’s not sorry for a big part of what was said, I’d actually rather he didn’t bother.

    • Freund or Foe August 11, 2017 at 12:33 pm

      I couldn`t give a shit if what he said was right or not. He`s an employee of the club that has broken ranks, and no doubt caused massive unrest a few days before the season starts. We can voice our opinions, so can pundits and journo`s, players shouldn`t.

      • McG 鈿解毥 August 11, 2017 at 12:38 pm

        Yep, but it’s done. What’s the point in slating the apology regarding substance? At least it’s not a pile of insincere BS, that would be even more insulting!

        • Freund or Foe August 11, 2017 at 12:39 pm

          It read as an insincere pile of bullshit to me. He didn`t even write it, completely forced.

          • McG 鈿解毥 August 11, 2017 at 12:42 pm

            He’s apologised for the timing but pretty much not what was said. I’d rather that than try & retract on what he came out with.

            • McG 鈿解毥 August 11, 2017 at 12:43 pm

              Call me naive, but I recon he quite poss does regret the timing too.

  • Harry Hotspur August 11, 2017 at 12:28 pm

    Freund or Foe August 11, 2017 at 12:24 pm

    鈥淗aving had time to consider my actions, I acknowledge now that the timing and manner of what I said was ill-judged.

    鈥淢y words were not meant to offend and for that I would like to apologise to the skinflint chairman, gullible manager and my underpaid team-mates and the nasty abusive fans.

    鈥淚鈥檇 also like to wish the google lads good luck ahead of Sunday鈥檚 game against Newcastle.鈥

  • Harry Hotspur August 11, 2017 at 12:26 pm

    There’s a gulf of difference between the timing and manner – and the actual substance of what he said.

    • Freund or Foe August 11, 2017 at 12:29 pm

      This.

  • Horndog August 11, 2017 at 12:24 pm

    Perhaps his words are a bit of both. He wishes he hadn’t blabbed (maybe) and he certainly doesn’t want his wallet lightened.

  • YidInExile August 11, 2017 at 12:24 pm

    Weak statement, dont think the players were ever mad with him as he echoed what most of em feel

      • Freund or Foe August 11, 2017 at 12:30 pm

        I`m not apologising for the knifing, or taking his money. I just hope it didn`t offend any passers by.
