ANDROS Townsend Watch: A look at the England’s new great hope.

The Mirror leads with news that the Spurs winger is on 16,000 a week. Every week. It choses to compare Townsend’s new wage packet not with that of a nurse or teacher but with Manu Adebyaor, the Spurs striker on £170,000-a-week. Darren Lewis writes:

Andros Townsend could yet become a target for rival clubs after Tottenham’s reward for his England heroics was a new four-year deal worth ‘just‘ £16,000 a week.

Have Spurs gone mad?

The contract means that, despite a £10,000 per week pay-rise, the 22-year-old’s earnings will still be dwarfed by misfit team-mate Emmanuel Adebayor’s £170k weekly wage – which is partly paid by his former club, Manchester City.

No. But Manchester City did. Maybe Andros should bat his eyelids at City?

Lewis, having placed ‘just’ in inverted commas, then continues to use the shift key:

The young winger had three-and-a-half years left on his original contract, which paid him ‘only‘ £6,000 every seven days.

‘Only’ seven days in a week. You cannot argue with Lewis’ facts.
