Tom Carroll literally carved countless years out of a professional career playing for Tottenham Hotspur by virtue of the fact that he’s Harry Kane’s best friend.
That’s iconic shit right there.

There were flashes of a decent player there. His whole issue was inconsistency.

That’s pretty much the benchmark for professional football. Consistency.

Never disliked the kid.

Which one is Tom Carol and which was Pritchard? Or are they both Winks? I hear they are the hottest prospects since Matty Etherington, except that Josh Onomah and Marcus Edwards....
 
He was too light weight at Spurs, just not at the level.

But can easily make a good living playing professionally and contribute wherever that may be.

A&C's a cunt, Hercules wanks off cats...
He's one of those neat and tidy midfielders that basically does fuck all that we're so good at producing. Not terrible at anything but not really great at anything either, did seem to have a goal or two in him at least.

He is not even top half in that squad. You could make a decent first 11 out of that to start...(fuck knows when) and he certainly wouldn't be in it

Indeed, it's no ultimate indigtment of a player not making it as top-4 level.... The trick is knowing when to drop down a notch.... Think if he'd been playing week in/week out for Swansea, Southampton or similar in his early 20's; one would expect he'd be a better player by now.
