Terrible Premiership Football Players
I've been enjoying Rubbish Footballers.com - a site dedicated to the crap players that occasionally clog up the Premiership and lower leagues of English football.
If you haven't visited this site, do so now. And you too will remember how appalling the likes of Mario Jardel and Christian Negouai really were.
But, the one thing I noticed was the lack of rubbish Tottenham players. Being a Spurs fan myself, I'd like to be able to claim that we've never had any rubbish players.
Unfortunately, fairly recent names like Ramon Vega and Gary Doherty spring to mind. So, in the spirit of Rubbish Footballers.com, here's my assessment of Messrs Vega and Doherty :
Gary Doherty: This half bald klutz was bought by Spurs from Luton Town by David Pleat. The idea was that he would be Spurs' Dion Dublin. Apparently, he was - like Dublin - equally good at centre half and centre forward.
This turned out to be sort of true. Doherty was, indeed, equally good at centre forward and centre back. He was terrible at both. For a big man, his heading ability was terrible; he had no first touch and no pace at all. Thus, deservingly, he is now playing for Norwich City. In Midfield.
Ramon Vega: This guy played for Spurs for a few seasons. He was, allegedly, a Swiss international. For Spurs, he was the guy that made all the mistakes, got the own goals and made a poor defence look terrible.
The irony, of course, is that he went to Celtic on loan, scored a few crucial goals for them and generally played like the man Spurs presumably thought they were buying. Ba'stard.
