Moussa Sissoko’s Dream Comes To An Abrupt End

We watched the game last night between Monaco and Tottenham in the group stages of the Champions League and it’s fair to say Tottenham were not good.

They looked second best throughout the game to Monaco and had it not been for goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris, who made some great saves, the scoreline would have been a lot worse than just 2-1.

One of the Frenchman’s saves late in the game was just a world-class reaction save that will be shown in years to come as maybe one of the best saves ever in the Champions League.

But in short – Tottenham didn’t turn up for the game.


Moussa Sissoko in action late in the game

And it says something of the impact Moussa Sissoko has made at the north London club when he came on late in the game and we had forgotten all about him.

We watched the Tottenham – West Ham game over the weekend and Moussa didn’t get on.

So it looks like – at least for the moment –  Moussa is a bit player at Spurs and the Spurs fans must be asking what exactly did they get for £30M.

Not much would be a good answer.

It was always Moussa’s dream to play in the Champions League – well he’s achieved that but he didn’t help his new club much did he.

Spurs are in 3rd place in Group E with 4 points from their five games and they will have a chance to qualify for the Europa League knockout stages if the can win their last game of the group.

That’s a home game against CSKA Moscow on 7th December.

Here’s some the tweets sent out by Newcastle fans after Tottenham were eliminated from the Champions League last night.

    A tweeter pointed out earlier that he’s such a Narcissist that most of this stuff will go whoosh right over his head – these buggers live in a bubble isolated from the real world.

    One of the NE journos a couple of years back just for a laugh asked somee of the higher paid NUFC and SAFC players how much a bottle of milk was – the average answer ? – £70 !!!

    Not only is Sissoko’s failing badly so too is Pardew. Not that they will give a shit, they both will think they’re doing a great job.

    Does anyone know the structure and machinations of the Sissoko deal. I know it’s being paid in installments, but what happens if after a season Spurs have had enough and want rid and sell him for half, ie 15M.
