Tottenham WHL

The renowned and outspoken Gunner supporter was asked what he thinks is wrong with Spurs.

Despite spending the entirety of the expected Gareth Bale transfer money on an abundence of European talent earlier in the summer, Tottenham Hotspur have collectively returned less than a goal per game in Premier League competition with just nine strikes after 12 match-days.

Their 6-0 mauling suffered at the superb and technical feet of Manchester City's star players was no doubt their worst day at the office and, while it was a sore subject for Spurs supporters, it brought glee to a number of Arsenal stars, as well as Gunners fans, such as Piers Morgan.
