What does Tommy Forecast have in common with David Button?

We are all aware of Tommy's " non-career " with Saints, but it seems that he's not the only one to have been frozen out at Spurs.

 

according to a small article I read today, David Button (now 23) has at last been transferred to ..Charlton (fee 500K) ...after playing for Spurs only 8 minutes in the last 7 years.

 

In that time, Button has been loaned out ....13 times (is this a record ?)... Can he really be as bad as " our Tommy?"

 

Time will tell, but as Tommy continues to warm the Gills ' bench.... Button is likely to get first team action at Charlton... We can monitor future score lines with interest.

 

 

if nothing else it will provide the hacks with a few headlines in the future. I can see: Charlton sew up Button in new deal...might be a good starter.

And I still don't get why you do​ this ;)

Surely if he's been loaned out 13 times in 5 years its no surprise he's not had much playing time at Spurs. Not sure what point you're trying to make with that. It's not like these teams aren't playing him - he's played over a hundred league games (ok, a handful were non-league) and he's only 23.

 

Tommy Forecast on the other hand in the same period has played just 22 games, of which only 4 (his first 4) were at a league club.

 

Nothing wrong with being loaned out if you're getting games. Especially at a young age.

Button was good on FM2012 for Leyton Orient when I played them. Played all 46 league matches, conceeded 41 as I finished 2nd, average 7.01 .

 

But then again Pablo Couñago who I think is now almost retired scored 23 goals (went on to score 18 in my first Championship season), so not sure about the realism of it.

 

I also checked and Forecast is unemployed a season after being released from Saints.

People like this really worry me.
