He is worth every penny! 16 yrs of pure loyalty and willingness to run his socks off! :townhmm:It is a scandal isn't it. A player who's not played 90 minutes of league football going for £12 million. English hype + Desperation + Levy = quadruple the fee.

I'm amazed that Everton didn't come in and have him link up with Lennon.
His career is over playing for Newcastle he wont fulfill his capabilities there.
He should have been braver and got his agents to look abroad for a league to move too. He'd have more chance remaining in the England squad lighting up a foreign league than scrapping the barrel at Newcastle trying to avoid relegation.
We show no respect to our long serving Legends. Levy can be a right olde banker!
Townsend a Spurs legend?
Not a legend, but a loyal servant for many years who clearly loved Spurs. Is is why any talk of player loyalty is nonsense. Why should any player be loyal to a club when they know that as soon as they are deemed surplus to requirements they'll be shipped out? All those Liverpool fans complaining about lack of loyalty from Suarez never complained about the club. Ditching Shelvey, who probably WANTED to stay.
I would imagine Townsend was keen to move, boyhood fan or not, in order to try to get into the England squad for the Euro's.
