World Cup Balls: Spurs Makeweight Andros Townsend Gives Arsenal And England Fans A Good Laugh



WORLD Cup Balls presents the wisdom of Spurs’ player Andros Townsend, now ‘writing’ for the Sun:

MISSING out on a World Cup is the most devastating thing in football. And it is good news that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain should only sit out the opener against Italy.

As there is nothing more painful in the game than getting sidelined for the world’s biggest tournament.

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 Watch: better than Bale and Lennon, the Spurs legend made Arsenal buy Ozil

I can only hope money doesn’t change him because he seems like a decent lad from a good family.

Arsenal’s Theo Walcott only needs to beat Spurs ‘superstar’ Theo Walcott to be a World Cup legend


HOW good has Spurs’ Andros Townsend become since he scored in England’s 4-1 win over Montenegro?

Tony Cascarino (Times):

I felt for Theo Walcott on Friday, sitting in a TV studio watching his replacement have a great game. Walcott would have wanted Andros Townsend to do well for England — just not too well! It’s a strange mix of feelings when you see your rival excel.
