Jamie O’Hara says he can’t believe what’s going on in Tottenham
With an outstanding start to the Premier League season, Tottenham Hotspur leads the standings going into the break.
Ange Postecoglou took over the Spurs and quickly turned the team around, leading to its current position at the top.
With 18 goals scored and 8 goals allowed in their first eight Premier League games, Tottenham has won six and drew two.
Spurs’ victory against Luton on Saturday put them in first place, and rival Arsenal’s 1-0 victory over Manchester City on Sunday kept the Lilywhites on top of the scoring charts.
Jamie O’Hara, a talkSPORT analyst and ardent Tottenham supporter, isn’t happy, though, because he believes Spurs aren’t currently receiving the respect they merit.
Even when Tottenham is performing well, the pundit feels that “everyone is quick to knock us down” and believes that everyone is “obsessed” with Spurs.
O’Hara said on the radio station, “I’ve noticed with Tottenham, when we’re doing well and we’re flying, everyone is eager to knock us down.
“Everyone jumps on the bandwagon without hesitation. Everyone is fixated on us; “You’re still Tottenham, you’ll still bottle it.”
“I’m tired of hearing, ‘Oh you’re still Spurs. When Arsenal was leading after eight games and flying last season, everyone proclaimed that they could win the league and accomplish many tasks.
“Tottenham, who is currently leading the league with eight games remaining after the international break, is still being told that they have little chance of finishing in the top four. What are you referring to? We’re best!”
O’Hara was told by host Jason Cundy that “no-one’s obsessed with Spurs,” but the analyst who supports Spurs wasn’t having it.
Jason always gives it the big one and claims that after the first few games.” O’Hara continued.
He stated, ‘That’s when you may come back to me,’ after eight to ten games. 11th place: Chelsea. Tottenahm initially.
“You’re backtracking, Tottenham are dominating; stop telling me there are only eight games.”
“You can have an open top bus during the international break,” Cundy continued. Congrats, Spurs.
Even if it’s encouraging to see a team other than Manchester City leading the table at this point, it’s way too early to even consider a title run.
The Citizens have the perseverance to keep working hard, close the distance with Arsenal, and eventually pass them to win the title last season.
Spurs are indeed doing well, and it’s encouraging to see how swiftly Postecoglou has made things better. Most Tottenham supporters will be aware of how early in the season it is, though.
Yes, there will be celebration for their current situation, but they will undoubtedly be controlling expectations.
As for the opposing supporters, they are sure to take shots at them no matter what. Large deal.
