“Lazy Punditry” “Do Your Homework” Spurs Legend Barks At Sky Sports Duo

By Joe Fish -

It takes a brave man to stand up to Roy Keane, especially in the mood the former Manchester United captain was in last night.

And there have been few braver to wear the Tottenham shirt than Graham Roberts, who hit back at the accusations of a soft under belly thrown at us by the neutral Sky Sports panel of Keane and Patrice Evra.

This is what the Spurs legend posted on Twitter:

Pochettino certainly addressed this issue to a degree. A team with a softness to it doesn’t make the type of comebacks we did in the Champions League last season, time and time again. Although this narrative is difficult to completely dismiss until we get over the line and win a trophy.

I don’t think this team is soft; certainly not in the ‘it’s Tottenham lads’ of Keane’s United days. But, definitely more so than we were 18 months ago, we are vulnerable at the back. Is this a character thing? A confidence thing? A personnel thing or a tactical thing? Probably a combination of all.

Roberts vs. Keane on pay-per-view next month. Book it, Eddie Hearn.

One point is better than zero, in the state we were in pre Covid we would probably have lost this game. But with players tiring and other players badly needing game time I’m surprised Mourinho didn’t use all his subs. After the West Ham game Spurs don’t play for ten days so Mourinho has missed an opportunity here to get players game time. The other worry is if we get a lead and the other team equalise what is the plan B? We’re not good enough to sit on a one nil for eighty minutes.
