Campbell: Tottenham Fans Like Me

Frazier Campbell had a stressful transfer deadline day, learning at the last minute that there was no chance of him being sold, rather he was on his way down south to play for Tottenham Hotspur.

Whilst he wanted to stay and prove himself at United, he was happy to get experience from the London club. However, little did he know then that Spurs would go on to have their worst start to a season since 1912!

There might have been fears he would be resented by Spurs, who were not very happy to see their prize striker leave, only for them to train up a United striker in return. However, he’s played five games in a Spurs shirt now, including a couple of matches in the UEFA Cup, and the fans seem fairly responsive to him.

Campbell was voted as Man of the Match by Spurs fans on Sky Sports in their recent away draw against Wisla Krak, and our young striker is getting good vibes off them.

“Obviously results could be better but that will come,” he said. “I’m just waiting for a chance to show what I can do and make the most of any opportunities that come my way. The fans have been good to me so far, I try to add a spark when I play and I think they like that.”

    Hate to tell you Man U Campbell but I think a lot of Spurs fans are not convinced by him. In fact I wouldn’t say any of the strikers are in anyway good enough at the moment but Fraser is prob the best of a very very bad bunch

  4. Bob Koh says:

    Campbell better than Palyuchencko, Bent & other so-called strikers is good enough for me. After all, he’s there for games so he’ll come back to OT better.

    Personal opinion I think that Campbell will be one of the main pillars line of attack Manchester in the coming years, the work of Wazza and Danny willback and Tevez

    So far, Campbell is the best offensive player. he has 1 assit and he almost scored. (Actually is not made, but he forced the Wisla Krak deffender 2 made a mistake and 2 score on his Net). In addition to his amazing moves in the Ground and keeping pressure on the opponent’s defenders, which is missing in Bent and Palyuchencko

    personally i hate the Spurs but at the same time when I see thier posittion in the league table and the poor performance till now its shocking me, and personally I agree with the former Tottenham manager Martin when he said 2 days before that the problem in the Spurs thats Ramos is destroying the English style of this team which is always the main style 4 this club same as Man united , West ham , Aston vill and Everton.(who used the English players alot wid english performance style).

    Another important reason is the lack of cohesion in the team. We saw every season more than one player is joining the team and on tshe other side more than one player leaves the team and this creates an imbalance and cause the team

    On the another side aclub like Everton does not have even a quarter of budgets Tottenham , but he has clever Coach and knows how to run the Group firmly and discipline and is therefore able to compete league standings until he seemed almost to go with four senior and due to the discipline and harmony great team which was missing from Tottenham
