Tottenham’s rise to genuine contenders for the title is truly amazing, when you consider they’ve probably homed some of the worst footballers ever to grace the Premier League. But what is even more amazing, is that some of those players are still knocking around the beautiful game and nicking a living!
Sadly, the likes of Chris Armstrong, Darren Anderton and Simon Davies aren’t still kicking a ball around. But there’s certainly a few random pub quiz answers in here.
Like many of Spurs' underwhelming (read: shit) signings, the Egyptian international was destined to be forgot. However, he earned a spot in the Lilywhites history, when he threw his shirt towards Martin Jol after being subbed off?. Now being shite for Al Ahly back in his home country.
16 years as a professional footballer has seen the Portuguese striker amass 14 different moves. Mad. The one-time Lilywhites forward is now back at Atletico de Kolkata in the Indian Super League, one-year after he left them for Rio Ave. Image Source: Twitter
"...It's only a job. Yes, it's a good, good job and I don't say that I hate football but it's not my passion." Assou-Ekotto No wonder football isn't the left-back's passion, as he's now back in Ligue 1 with Metz, and the football is bloody atrocious.
Yeah, we weren't having this either. There can't be any way that the former Fulham creative playmaker is still playing. However, after leaving Lyon, in the summer, Steed is now a Caen player. Image Source: Twitter
The former Spurs player has had a career that someone of his talents just doesn't deserve; Hamburg, Sampdoria, Juventus, and Fenerbahce - some real respected teams in there. Ziegler is now an FC Sion player, which makes more sense.
Such a bland and generic name - sounds like the name you come up with, when you're just using a made-up example. The now-Port Vale midfielder's career makes you question how an earth he managed to spend two years at White Hart Lane; a time that was full of nothing but being bypassed in games, late challenges and fruitless confrontations with officials. Muppet.
When you look at the state of list, and then compare to the starting XI under Mauricio Pochettino, Spurs certainly get the most improved award – like that fat kid at school that turns up to the school reunion with a six-pack.
