Oh dear, oh dear; in a time where we usually put out the Christmas lights, let Michael Buble come out of hibernation, and generally walk around as if we have hangers in our mouths, it seems that the Spurs boys are just not quite part of the same bracket.
Yeah, the north London club haven’t had an awful lot to cheer about this year; from getting themselves out of Europe quicker than Great Britain herself, to becoming the side that no Premier League wishes to be… King of the Draw. Still, surely Christmas can cheer them up, maybe sticking Chris Rea’s, ‘Driving Out of Europe’ on would help?
Doesn’t seem the festive period will do it for the Lilywhites, though, as the Spurs stars seem about as uninspiring as that bloke, Courtney, off of the Apprentice in Tottenham’s promotional video for their Christmas advert…
Don’t get us started on those jumpers, which look like the Lilywhites are working a Cadbury’s advent calender. And, we know Harry Kane is Tottenham’s ‘own’ and all that bollocks, their ‘marquee man’, as Vincent Janssen continues to look about as lost as Alan Carr in a Guy Ritchie movie; but why use the Englishman in a promotional advert?
Just about every Tom, Dick and Harry knows how dull the King of Corners can be in-front of the camera; even his mate, Dele Ali, can’t take him seriously ?…
Hopefully for Spurs there’s more Christmas cheer than both Harry, and Josh Onomah, can muster up in a promo video; otherwise it could be a case of the ‘greatest manager’ in the Premier League could be getting a different kind of Christmas sack from Daniel Levy come the end of the year.
Have a look at the 9 Premier League players who are too good for their clubs…
To say that Arsenal's title ambitions rest on the shoulders of Alexis Sanchez would be an understatement. The Chilean frontman is easily the Gunners' best player, and is clearly missing the company of Messi. Image Source: Twitter
Last season's aberration may have brought Hazard back down to earth, but the promiscuous Belgian just won't stop flirting with Spain's super clubs. Image Source: reddit
Although things didn't exactly work out at Anfield, fearsome frontman Benteke deserves more than Selhurst Park and Alan Pardew. Image Source: Twitter
Lukaku had his chance at the big time when he joined Chelsea back in 2011, but at 23, the striker is now an entirely different proposition. Everton fans know his days in blue are numbered. Image Source: Twitter
Londoner Kane has talked big about his loyalty to Spurs, but their dismal Champions League campaign is a timely reminder that he'll need to up sticks if he has his sights on Europe's biggest prize. Image Source: Twitter
At 35, Zlatan is no spring chicken, but he's still a class above his new United teammates, who should probably get used to the sight of the Swede's disapproving stare. Image Source: Twitter
Burnley's capture of Defour was one of the more surprising summer transfers, and early signs suggest he's going to fit in like a bull in a china shop. Image Source: Twitter
Reigning PFA Player of the Year Mahrez has been a little off the boil this season, which is handy because it will help keep the vultures at bay - for a few months at least.
Valdes won every trophy he could possibly win at Barca... twice over. Now he spends his weekends manning the sticks for Middlesbrough. It's just not right. Image Source: Twitter
