Sack Les FerdinandBy: Robert Reed | March 18th, 2013
I was contemplating our current plight when a startling thought occurred to me. Les Ferdinand; what the hell do we pay him for?
In theory ‘Sir Les’ has been coaching the strikers at White Hart Lane since 2008. In that time we have had the most sorry bunch of goal shy wasters I can remember at the club. The cow’s arse has been a complete stranger to the banjo.
They have played as badly as that guy who signed for us in the nineties…who was it now…scored a total of 39 goals in 149 games…what was his name…oh yeah, Les Ferdinand.
Some strikers arrived with a great reputation, none left with it. Darren Bent, Peter Crouch, Roman Pavlyuchenko, Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor have all been at the club during his tenure; benefiting from the molten bronze droplets of soccer wisdom he has been bestowing upon them. In that time not a single player has scored twenty goals in a season.
Some people are saying we would be better off without AVB today, I am certainly not one of them. Ferdinand though! How has he lasted this long?
