Danny Rose says he was unhappy with reaction to his contract in 2014 - but many backed him too.
Rose said he felt he was being written off, claiming he had just one below par season, and he was deserving of more respect.
There were certainly some disgruntled voices, but many supporters expressed their faith in Rose, noting that he was hardly the only under performer in 2013/14.
Those supporters asked for Rose to be given a chance - one he has gone on to seize under new boss Mauricio Pochettino over the past three seasons.
When you see Xabi Alonso and Tottenham trending at the same time... and it turns out we've resigned Danny Rose for 5 years. Kill me now— Ben Skipp (@ben_skipp) July 31, 2014
Are we sure it wasn't a 5 eared blonde cat that Spurs gave Danny Rose? As a leaving present.— GΔLLΟWS HUΜΟUR (@paulgallows) July 31, 2014

I hope Danny Rose plays to his potential this season and shoves the hateful words of so-called tottenham 'fans' back down their throats.— jim Mc (@jimspur72) July 31, 2014
Good on Danny Rose for training hard he has energy and he is a at em type of player like Poch seems to like. He can still do a job for us— 1882 A Legacy Born.. (@jamiedunne01) July 31, 2014
Danny Rose doesn't deserve to be at spurs like that. I'd have him back at Sunderland any day.— Chris Davis (@C_DavisYCFC) July 31, 2014

Why can't we just give Danny Rose a chance with a decent manager? Yes, he was pants last season but TBF on him, who wasn't? Except for Hugo?— Jo (@Tegan_Jovanka) July 31, 2014
Rose certainly has gone on to prove the doubters wrong - so much so that he earned another contract last season, and still feels he is underpaid and deserves more.
He has gone on to establish himself as England's number one left-back, when in 2014 he was not even in competition to make Roy Hodgson's World Cup squad.
Now opinion on the defender is equally as divided - but not for footballing reasons.
