Atouba Leaving.

The world's most skilful left back (Trademark A. Vale) has been flogged to Hamburg for, as usual, an undisclosed fee. The defender, best remember for a stunning strike against Newcastle and trying to turn defenders in his own box will join the German club assuming he can agree personal terms.

Amazingly he played 24 times for Spurs providing many heart stopping moments! Good luck Tim and good luck to Hamburg fans next season as well.

COYS!

Aah, poor Timmy. Whilst we have the seen the bad with him, need i mention an example?, we've also seen a cracking goal from him. Is there more to come from him? Who will be his replacement? I hope this means another new signing

Jol did repeatedly pick Toubs before Edman last season, Edman only came back in once Toubs was injured... does this mean Saliteri has been signed as our new left back with Kelly staying number 1 right back? Edman and Paramot/Ifil as backups? Otherwise surely Jol would want another left back... Maybe Reto will play further back now tho as Reid is here and we keep being linked with new wingers. thoughts?

Look all of you, you must realise that Atouba was not all that good.

I noticed that as a left back Atouba had a tendency to not look round at the winger on the other side, and was always too far away from him - bread and butter stuff!!

As a winger, he was just a stopper. He had some fancy flicks to confuse his opposite number, but that just not enough!! He was also not some one who could burst up the wing and either cross it in or score goals - (like Ginola could with ease). Atouba only did it once against Newcastle, which is unacceptable in my view.

I conclude that the club tried to educate him about these problems, but he just seemed not to take the advice in. Therefore, not top six material, and its good business to sell him to Hamburg (an average club in Germany - Says it all don’t you think?)

Any Ideas how much money were selling him for?

means: hamburg again buys the worst players they can find...

ok, let me ask something. we dont know shit about Atouba, but when one reads over these comments, it becomes more than clear, he is not the defender, who can do it.
so, can you describe a little, why his game is weak and what his strengths are (if there are some...)

thx + bye from hamburg

Well Pleased to hear that Atouba has finally gone to cast his magic on some other poor team. shame coz i was well looking forward to some more drag-backs in our own penalty area next season.

Hopefully now we can really shovel the shizer and sack off antony "The Heskey Of Defence" gardner as well.

Honestly, i still have nightmares to this day about him and Doh!-erty as our centre backs under pleat.

Gardner failed a medical so he won't be going anywhere for a while unless he gets his act together.

To our German readers:

Sadly Atouba is full of tricks that he tries to pull of in your own penalty area sometimes losing possession and putting the team under pressure.
