LUFC Spurs view on Andros Townsend
Leeds United have signed Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Andros Townsend on loan until the end of the season.
I have spoken to our colleague`s at vital Spurs to get the lowdown on our new signing.
The following Spurs fans said:
A good move. I hope that Grayson sticks around and gives him his opportunity over a run of games because this is what he desperately needs. He is a very bright player, but does need to develop his team game as opposed to being an outstanding individual talent, although he could always try to make it as a singer of his football career doesn`t take off.
The corner pin
Townsend is a very promising player, it's a shame he plays the same position as Bale or he would have had loads more first team appearances. He is most effective on the left wing but can play right wing too. He is quick and is not afraid to have a go at goal. He has scored one or two crackers. A very good signing for you. And yes he is better than Livermore. I rate him as one of our best youngsters.
Getting rid of him in the current climate sucks - come Feb/March and plenty of injuries, where will the striking potential come from? One thing about this boy is he is unafraid to shoot. Do we have the 'emergency recall' clause, does anybody know?
He will definitely make the grade in the Premier League. He is a left-winger but can play left back and also on the right. His strengths are his pace and versatility. His weaknesses are his crossing and not tracking back.
Shame Townsend's gone.
Just a personal view obviously, but I would sooner see him on the bench than the usual suspects if we needed to change things in order to get a goal.
A bit of youthful exuberance, plus ability, could cause some problems in the last 20 minutes, rather than the non-appearance of anyone but Defoe.
