Andy Reid Analysis

Andy Reid Analysis

There aren't many Spurs fans mourning the departure of Andy Reid. Reid arrived in January 2005 with Michael Dawson, and whilst it was envisaged that Reid (who enjoyed god-like status at Nottingham Forest) would be the star buy, it was Dawson who turned out to be a real diamond, while Andy struggled to make headway and edge into the Spurs midfield which has had great strength for the last two years.

Perhaps Reid's greatest Spurs moment was his goal against Aston Villa in our 5-1 victory of May, 2005, but that was his only Premiership goal in 20 League starts and 6 substitute appearances. I can say that I have seen Reid excel at reserve level, but that's a different sphere. Andy is usually thought of as a left-winger, but actually aspires to be a central midfield player - for creative rather than defensive reasons.

Spurs appear to have done a very good deal in the sale of Reid to Charlton, where Iain Dowie is busily re-shaping his squad. It will be interesting to see if Reid becomes an automatic first choice at The Valley, or whether I see him again at Reserve level. Whatever the case, Reid tried his best to make it at Spurs, and I wish him well at his new club.

Im really sorry it did'nt work out for Andy Reid at spurs. I was really exited when he arived with Michael Dawson Who prior to joining had a series of injury problems including glandular fever. Since they joined Spurs they have had a complete reversal in fortunes, Dawsons has barely missed a game whilst Reid has had one problem after another. However I really hope he has a change of fortunes at Charlton, Good luck Andy.

Sorry to see him leave Tottenham, wished he was not so injury prone during his time there he may have been able to show what he could do if he had had a run in the team.....anyway he's gone now so good luck to him at Charlton.

Well that means Dawson only cost £5m and he's worth the full £8m already anyway, £10m+ for us to even fathom a thought of selling him, so good bye pie man and no hard feelings (except the crust)!
