Tottenham fans have lost patience with Andros Townsend, want him sold

Tottenham Hotspur supporters commenting on HITC Sport appear to have had enough of the struggling 24-year-old.

There is probably no way back for Andros Townsend at Tottenham now.

Last season, game after game, the winger would frustrate supporters and they would question whether he could ever return to form in north London. This term, he spoke of how his fitness was letting him down before and how he is now ready to deliver at White Hart Lane.

Let's be honest, that was never the case. Townsend simply isn't good enough for Tottenham and the winger may now have blown his last chance.

Of course, those very words have been written before and, due to injuries and perhaps even sympathy from Mauricio Pochettino, the 24-year-old somehow finds his back in the Spurs line-up from time to time.

But that might not last much longer as Tottenham fans have simply had enough.

If Pochettino is at all able to gauge how the White Hart Lane faithful feel, Townsend won't be given another sniff unless he miraculously doubles his performance levels in training. At Anderlecht on Thursday night, there was the usual from the winger. Cutting inside, losing the ball and shooting aimlessly. Over and over again.

And Spurs fans have made their Townsend feelings clear through various comments on the HITC Sport pages...

Tony Borg wrote: 'He [Trippier] isn't good enough alone with N'jie, Lamela, Townsend and Davies, could mention more but they are the worst.'


Dickspur wrote: 'I'm no Dembele fan, but I thought there ere 3 main culprits tonight - Townsend, Lamela and Trippier.'


Johnsie wrote: 'TOWNSEND should never wear a Tottenham kit again we've finally run out of chances for this championship player!'


Halabil wrote: 'Sorry but the worst of the lot tonight was by far Townsend. If we can get £10 mill for him in January, let's get him off the books. Kane will start scoring in November like last year :-) but yes we need to get an out and out striker.'


Arthur James wrote: 'I did not think Lamela was amongst the bad lot This was the most I saw Dembele dispossessed .I think Townsend was the worst player and not for the first time . Kane needs to realise that power does not always work . Please let Townsend go.'


Norfolk Spur wrote: 'Yet again Townsend was awful. If Mark Bright couldn't see that in last nights game, he must have been watching a different channel! Spurs should get rid of him in January.'
