Olsson Smashed Up Dressing Room

Olsson Smashed Up Dressing Room

Martin Olsson may have fouled Aaron Lennon a few times on Sunday but that was nothing compared to the spanking he gave the away team dressing room at White Hart Lane!

Martin has also been protesting his innocence for the first yellow card dished in his direction in the 1-0 defeat.

Olsson speaking to Sky Sports said, 'I was at the ball, not Aaron Lennon, when I got my first yellow card, the second card, well there's nothing to say about that one, it was a really bad day at work for me.

'I can't even explain how it felt. My first thought was 'have I really been sent off', I was so disappointed, mainly at myself. I destroyed most things in the locker room.

'I kicked at everything I saw, doors, garbage cans, cardboard boxes.'

So it's fair to say he cares then, thats the passion we need to see more of on the pitch!

I wouldn't be suprised to see Martin hit with a fine from Tottenham however, time will tell on that one though.

the guy has passion but clearly has no brain, chopping Aaron not once but twice, 1st being advantage play on the 2nd stopping the game!! he should have been given 2 yellow cards in one go by the ref, not taking into account his 3rd foul which got him sent off. thick *****er

A bit over the top i admit but to be fair Mikey, Olsson should have done alot better in the situation. He is a professional footballer on top wages and 19 or not has to do better. You could see the sending off coming from a mile away and he should be able to control himself.....anyhow, i think he's a good player and he will learn from the experience. The problem is that we cant keep carryying player who make terrible mistakes like he did...he cost us the goal with an individual error then the match with his sending off.....

Agreed, he wasnt great but as you say he will learn.

dude, 2 chops, should have been 2 yellow cards, so how Olsson said the 1st one wasnt 1 yellow is beyond me. Maybe 2 was an exaggeration but either one of them was a definite yellow, even the pundits said it.

what lennon did to olsson was comical....he skinned him alive and made him dizzy...thats why olsson was *****ed off!!! not the red card!....nobody in the prem wants to look like a pub league player, and thats what lennon did to olsson! spurs were not 3 or 4 nil up at half time was amazing! fair play to you lot though...u took a proper hiding and only walked away with a 1-0 loss

How did you lot feel when your goalkeeper was playing around with us lot in the PARKLANE end .... and admitting his heart is still with SPurs .... and that he hates Ar5ena1 !!! ?????
26/11/2008 14:33:00
Oh .... and if your not one of the 300 that turned up .... Thats what was happening .....x x It was so funny x x

I like Olsson as a potential player but he is out of his depth at this level. Its a bloody joke the team selection at the moment!
