It has been another underwhelming start to the season for the White Hart Lane faithful. With a new manager and a couple of initial positive results, hopes were raised sky high that a consistent challenge for the top four might be put forward by Tottenham this season.

Unfortunately for Spurs fans the honeymoon period under Mauricio Pochettino has finished and the hard reality is that the North London club are not showing the form needed to go toe-to-toe with the Premier League’s best teams.

Like last term, home form has been a major issue, with Tottenham struggling to win games that a team with ambitions of qualifying for the Champions League should be winning.

The latest setback came on Sunday as Stoke beat Spurs 2-1 at White Hart Lane; the most disappointing thing for the home support was a lack of energy, some chaotic defending and not many chances to get back into the game.

Emmanuel Adebayor
Emmanuel Adebayor has spoken up about the stale atmosphere at the North London club following defeat to the Potters and admitted that a number of the players would prefer to play away from home than face the expectation of the White Hart Lane faithful.

Although things are far from ideal for Tottenham currently, comments in the media that can be perceived negatively are the last thing that the club needs and especially from a player that is underperforming.

Outspoken, controversial but at times brilliant, Adebayor epitomised the lack of urgency in the Tottenham camp on Sunday when it took him a number of minutes to get his boots on to come off the bench in the second half.

However, instead of making his thoughts on matters known the Togolese forward would be best applying himself fully on the pitch, like he did when he whilst on loan and looking for a permanent move to the club, and leaving talking to his manager.
