    I doubt they have.

    @Bishop would have to have a particularly weak mind for it to affect his performance though.

    Transfermarket view (not claiming accuracy), btw if we really had Toby for 6 years for effective €3M (plus wages), fudging hell that was a steal.

    That one error being the penalty in his first game then. I was thinking of that yesterday, and I couldn’t recall any other big mistakes at all.

    He really was the dogs pods. Numerous games where he played like Pirlo spraying balls around setting up goals. He wasn't always perfect, he had off games. Wasn't the best in the air. But he had a voodoo knack as well. Could put off players, and niggle them just enough. Still we move on!

    What about the own goals?

    Yeah there were definitely other ‘errors’ too; losing a man at a set piece, own goals as you say. Bloody internet as usual, putting some stat down and talking it up as fact!

    Damn I have to ignore any stat that paints Henderson in a flattering light! I did suggest the error count was low from my only memories though :D

    He always did like a nice clean parting.

    Well done Toby and good luck.

    Start as you mean to finish I guess. He also conceded a penalty in his last game for us against Leicester on the final day. But your point still stands, he didn’t make many mistakes.

    824 out of 30,000 attempts isn't great.

    Great servant for the team. For me his main weakness was in the air. Otherwise a very good defender, one of the best CBs we've had in my time supporting Spurs.

    I think a lot of our fall from grace is down to him and Verts ageing. They were both top class players and worked brilliantly together. Losing both around the same time has given us huge issues which as of now have still not been resolved.

    How did we not manage to win any silverware with these 3 phenomenal Dutchmen in their prime at the core of our team :(

    Him and Jan were such a great partnership, complemented each other perfectly.

    So many good performances from Toby, great memories but I think he was in decline, didn't quite have the quick awareness he used to and was slightly out of position for a few goals. Probably saved a fair bit on wages now as well.

    The last bit is key. Even if the fee was as low as £3m, that’s about another £12m saved in last two years of his contract.

    Yep. Neither have been replaced and now we have to put up with fudging Dier and Sanchez. It’s like going from Kane to Frazier Campbell.
