Tottenham fans make it clear what they think of Andros Townsend

Andros Townsend is reportedly staying put at Tottenham Hotspur next season and some of their fans have had their say about him.

A recent report from the Telegraph claimed Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino wants to keep Andros Townsend at the club next season.

That is despite the winger often flattering to deceive at White Hart Lane and it does beg the question: How many more chances will the England international get?

Whatever you think of Townsend, the simple fact is the 23-year-old has not performed consistently and the heady days of his initial breakthrough already seem a distant memory.

Townsend now has 86 senior appearances for Tottenham under his belt but with just 11 goals and 15 assists, he has to significantly up his game if he wants to remain in the first-team plans of a manager who has to get things right next season.

Following the news that Pochettino had no intention of parting company with Townsend, a number of HITC readers made their feelings known by commenting on some of our articles.

A piece on whether DeAndre Yedlin should be given chances ahead of Townsend on the right wing certainly got people talking, as did the initial news that the player was going nowhere just yet.

Below you can read a selection of comments from Tottenham fans on their young winger:

Johnsie said: ‘My dog could outshine Andros Townsend! She runs aimlessly with a ball but she's twice as fast!!’

Vegguy said: ‘Indeed - It is over time to move Townsend on. We should have taken Southampton's offer last year. He's had his chance. Partly negatively influenced by playing for Hodgson, but others have recovered while he hasn't.’

George said: ‘He we go, Botchettino has started! Townsend should be gone! He has had umpteen opportunities, and all season has done sweet FA!! Sell him now while Hodgson still picks him and there’s still some value!!’

HaHaHaHa said: ‘Townsend is effectively our 3rd choice winger...4th if you include Eriksen in that. We're also odds on to sign another winger this summer which would push him further down the pecking order. Thing is though, Townsend I believe would almost be happy with that scenario...meaning - for a team of our size - we would have one of the most talented back up wingers around...I would only sell Townsend if he asked to leave.’

Dommo said: ‘AnDross is overrated has not improved and Yedlin should be at least given a chance, one sub appearance isn't enough, his appearances for USA have been very positive of late.’
