Soldado polarises fans on Twitter after 1st half: Another Rebrov?

Tottenham Hotspur supporters are singing from the same hymnbook on social media as they put themselves through a 'boring' performance against Tromso.

Tottenham Hotspur have laboured through a goal-less first-half on an artificial pitch in the Arctic Circle on Thursday, November 28 against Tromso in the Europa League, however, considering Spurs are facing a team who were recently relegated from the Tippeligaen and the club are in financial dire straits, the Lilywhite fans - particularly the 300 who made the trip - may have been hoping for a positive reaction following the 6-0 humbling they faced against Manchester City last weekend.

Spurs have made shots on goal, but the ones struck have often fizzed frustratingly wide and have been unleashed from the club's wingers, rather than the man Tottenham paid £26m for in the summer transfer window; Roberto Soldado, a 28-year-old proven goal-scorer in Spain who has now polarised his employers supporters.

The split is fairly equal, with some becoming flabbergasted at Soldado's lack of service, that Roberto requires a strike partner to get the best out of him and that the positions he takes up are begging for a decent ball to be passed to the area ahead of him, so he has something to challenge for.

But the former Valencia man has also received censure… that he is guilty of a languid style, that even Emmanuel Adebayor has greater movement and that Darren Bent would be a good replacement come the opening of the mid-season market when players are available for trading.
