It’s been a difficult couple of weeks for Tottenham, and their supporters inside the Football Transfer Tavern are not best pleased.
Andre Villas-Boas has seen his side fail to score from open play in three consecutive games, and last Sunday it proved even most costly as his side fell to a shock 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United at White Hart Lane.
Whilst Magpies goalkeeper Tim Krul was outstanding, Tottenham missed several clear cut opportunities, and their lack of Premier League goals is becoming a big problem that AVB may well have to address in January.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has declared there will be money available to spend in January, despite the club splashing all of the £86 million they received for Gareth Bale, plus more on new playing talent.
And it has to be said that some of the new talent bought in has failed to deliver so far – and they are not the only ones.
Before AVB re-enters the transfer market, he will need to try and get some more out of the players already at his disposal, as plenty of performances so far have been well below par.
Here we have identified five players we feel are not pulling their weight at Tottenham so far this season.
