Parrott Given A Salutary Lesson In Big-Boy Football [Video]
By Joe Fish -

Anybody can miss a penalty, so there is no blame to lay at the feet of Troy Parrott for last night’s FA Cup exit at the hands of Norwich City.

We have seen Parrott stick spot-kicks away for fun for Tottenham’s youth teams. Top corners, panenkas, you name it. But his effort last night was tame, as the 18-year-old learned a lesson in the pressures of senior football.

MORE: Jose Talks About Parrott As Though He’s Damaged Goods [Video]

Norwich goalkeeper Tim Krul claims to have shook the Republic of Ireland international’s confidence, telling the Eastern Daily Press: “For me personally, I look at the player. Who’s confident and who’s not.

“The young lad, Parrott, I played a little bit with his head. “I said ‘I haven’t seen many penalties from you when I’ve done my homework’ and he just looked at me.”

The below video shows Krul getting in Parrott’s face before the striker’s penalty, and the mind games he later played with Gedson Fernandes…

When you think of the pressure Parrott would be under stepping into Harry Kane’s shoes, you can see why Jose Mourinho has been cautious with him.

Parrott looks mustard. I’m getting on the Parrott train early, let’s just hope he doesn’t get shipped out on loan, or dare I say it, sold.

What I find difficult to understand is this . Regarding Botch and Jose . Why go along with the Corporate Mantra ? ‘ I am Berry Happy ‘, ‘There will be No Major Overhaul in the Summer ‘, I can understand the Be Careful or else you Gonna be sacked , scenario, but we are talking about 2 Men , Multi Millionaires , Respected in their Fields , Who were, are , scared to open their mouths , or paid up Members . Regarding Gagging Orders . Blanchflower Refused to sign those way back in the 60’s, Check It out .

Andy Jacobs on Talk $hite (one of the few good people on there with Hawksby), said he went to the new stadium when Poch was still there as a Chavski fan and was full of jealousy. He said, “this club have everything, great stadium, great manager, great football”.

He also said that Lewis could have easily given Levy instructions to keep Poch happy, got Dybala and Fernandes etc, had a real freshen up. He just cannot fathom the logic behind how the club’s being run and how bad everything has becomes so quickly…

He’s spot on.

Levy is playing the long game, you have to give him credit for doing his job (Joe asked him to do) which is to make money on his investment. Winning doesn’t matter, fans really need to understand that. I think now with boxing and Gaga there will be a lot more companies looking to sponsor the stadium. ENIC have manipulated the faith of fans to make a huge investment which is virtually impossible in any other market…

So we miss out on a home FA cup quarter final against Man Utd. Man Utd brought in a striker in January who has now scored three goals in two appearances. We are unable to do that.Man Utd win 3-0. For some reason their players do not appear to be fatigued even though they appear to play as many games. Our club is a sham. Levy and ENIC are a toxic cancer within our club. ENIC/LEVY OUT

We should have got a central striker in January, we had a month to sort it out.

It could have made the difference, especially with Jose’s flipping long-ball game. Levy is penny wise and pound foolish, no Champions League is going to cost a lot more, to put it mildly.

Where football is concerned I would say Levy is actually a complete idiot…

Troys penalty was poor he opened up his body easily showing where he was going. Perfect height for the keeper and soft with no conviction… Krul was a beast for holland at saving penalties. Acts the clown to put people off. Unsportsmanlike, but it works.

The tax exile whos been living in the bahamas since the 80s 😆 hes irrelevant I think spurs/enic/levy is just one of many pies that pumps obscene amounts of money his way. Lewis has no problem investing in stocks where he made most of his money. I’m pretty sure its levy who calls all the shots. I could be wrong and its lewis ordering levy to make profit and balance the books? Lewis owns more. 70 percent. So is levy his dog? Or is levy doing his own thing?

With all the other on pitch problems the club has now, focusing on s penalty miss by a kid striker seems slightly frivolous under the circumstances.

Everything about this team has become ghastly this season and Jose has probably made it slightly worse with his anti-Spurs football. None of us would mind if the boring footy brought results, but it isn’t even doing that.

The whole thing is an embarrassment and a mess. Not the players, not the club, not the fans. The people that run it, they made the mess.

The penalties weren’t good by any stretch, but they are not the real issue. We have played them 3 times in the last few weeks. There’s a strong argument to say the better football came from them on every occasion. Now before I get hung drawn and quartered for that, I take not even the tiniest but of satisfaction from that statement. While I have my reservations about Jose, I would trust him to know if parrot was ready, trouble or whatever. So I don’t hold it against him, at the end of the day anyone can miss a penalty. But the real issue here is why is it we can’t seem to play anything resembling decent football anymore? The lack of attacking isn’t a surprise, it’s Jose’s way, but you got to question why we seem to be struggling to defend properly anymore

When people accuse you of gaining pleasure from watching us play badly and even losing you just need to ignore it.

This is known as a weaponising the argument and it’s ploy to deflect criticism. If you criticise the performance, and you blame that performance on certain things (like the manager) others don’t agree with, you get it in the neck for a lack of loyalty.

It’s the same tactics as Stalin’s Russia, any criticism of the state is disloyalty, no matter how justified.

It’s complete balls, don’t fall for it.

It is the worst possible scenario after moving into the new stadium. Quite a few people feared this would happen but withheld judgement until they saw what the owners were going to do. Some people are trying to dress ir up as some kind of rebuilding project, as some kind of reinvention.

I believe Jose was hired to fix things in the short term. Leavy said when he appointed him that the squad was very talented and It just needed to get back to winning ways. That hasn’t happened all, no surprise there.

It is just a complete shambles, there is no other conclusion to draw at this point.

Disappointing for Troy but he did at least step up while the old hands hid. He can also console himself with the knowledge HK missed one on his debut under far less pressure (already 5 up) and without some lummox getting in his face before he’d even reached the box. (Btw why was Krul allowed to keep being a yard off his line when the lino was staring right at him?)
As for the preceding two hours … another witless, disheartening performance; ultra cautious while still looking achingly vulnerable against a semi-championship outfit. At least the crazy gibber about “targeting” the FA Cup has ended but every game now is just clarifying for opponents we are there for the taking.
