Mousa Sissoko is now talking as if he is a man with a future at Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. Even though he’s introduced a little artistic license.
“This season is totally different because I had the pre-season with the team,” he said. “Last season I signed at the last minute and didn’t have the pre-season, so it was difficult.”
Er… I thought you didn’t fly to the States because you had a virus?
“Now I feel good and ready to fight like everyone, and try to give my best for the team. I hope I will do well this season and we will all do well in the league, in the Champions League and in the cups.
“The manager gave me my chance (against Everton) and I tried to give my best. I think I did well, like all the team, so I’m happy. When you start you’re always happy.
“I had some chances but I didn’t score. That’s football, so I hope my goal will come soon. But the most important thing was to have a good game.”
The jury may be out on Sissy, but I’m not. I still can’t fathom what the footballing reasons were for buying him. Whilst he’s seeing more of the ball than he has done, he’s still doing nothing of any note with the damn thing.
I keep hearing mumbles that he didn’t do that badly and that he was quite good. This is all rather embarrassing and on a direct par with the Levy fanatics that believe were a well run club because we haven’t gone bust.
At £95,000 a week the money would be better invested if we spent it on cut flowers.
