No surprise this bitter pundit is spouting rubbish ahead of West Ham match
By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham was brought back down to earth in the Europa Conference League yesterday after Vitesse Arnhem defeated a second-string team fielded by Nuno Espirito Santo.

The 1-0 loss ends their three-game winning run in all competitions, but former West Ham star, Frank McAvennie says Spurs never hit top form as we would believe.

He told Football Insider: “My message would be, don’t get carried away.

“That’s an awful Newcastle team, one of the worst I’ve seen. It’s a mystery how Kane didn’t score more.

“Yes, the tide has turned in the league and things are looking rosy again. But what happens when they come up against a proper side?

“Villa are not at it this season and Newcastle are awful. Don’t get me started on that team from Slovenia.

“They made hard work of that, truth be told. Beat West Ham, which won’t be easy, then maybe we can have that conversation.

“But what happens if West Ham win? The pressure on Nuno goes up again.”

The Boy Hotspur says

Spurs did beat a poor Newcastle United side but it is lazy to suggest that more goals should have been scored, it is just a lazy assumption not based on fact and some perspective is required but to expect that from McAvennie is an exercise in futility.

Maybe McAvennie is bitter that his beloved Hammers is below Tottenham, who are apparently woeful this season.

Tottenham went into a cauldron last Sunday, they went a goal down within minutes and the only reason that the Geordies ended up looking so bad is because Tottenham made them look bad.

He then goes on about Villa, the same Villa that beat both Manchester United and Everton this season and entered the game against us after that win over the Red Devils.

We all know Spurs need to improve but considering we have played three of the traditional top six already, while West Ham has played just the one and yet they are still behind us in the standings tells you that maybe McAvennie should concentrate on his own club before uttering nonsense about a bigger and better club.

He’s right.
How this side is 5th is a absolute mystery. Shows how bad the division is…

Agreed. Our first 3 wins were ‘fortunate’ to say the least. Newcastle and Villa are hardly stellar opposition for our next 2. West Ham, Utd and Everton to come and that will even things up. We get 6 points and we have done well.

I doubt he’s ‘pro-Spurs’ but his comments are fair really. We need to beat someone of note to prove the rot has been stopped.

They’ve looked half decent this season so far.

There are far too many washed up bitter ex players being given platforms by various media outlets nowadays in general, but so many feel it’s open season to have a go at us. This guy, and another that really brings my heckles up is Merson. I watched Merson’s Documentary on TV last week and actually felt sorry for the bloke, then a couple of days later he was spouting anti spurs s&^t. If only we could just win this one, one in off someones backside would do, and shut some of this lot up !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

The media are having a West Ham love in of late. Even after their best season in decades, without European football, with the born again superstar Lingaard (do me a favour!) they still only finished 6th. They will have to go some to repeat that with the demands of Europe and no Lingaard, although he could go back in January I suppose.

West Ham are a well drilled, pragmatic and fit team, but that is it. A good team will find them out and invariably they do. I just wish we were one. I do think we are better though.

The way we capitulated v Palace and the Arsenal game are still giving me nightmares. A result against this lot will ease my pain, but the sheer lack of consistency from Spurs worries me.

Palace, Arsenal, Chelsea. Three London derbies. This makes me worried that the other lot just want it more in these games – the Arse and CP are nothing special, but they still put three past us each.

West Ham have a clear style and they are good at what they do. I would rank them certainly above Palace and possibly above Arsenal too.

We need to turn up for once and not start playing when 3-0 down.

Agreed. Brentford to come as well. 10 derbies in one year. We need 20 pts from that lot to be competitive, but have already dropped 9. We lose on Sunday and it is bleak.
