He is, or at least he was. But it doesn't matter how good you are technically if you're convinced nobody can teach you anything, that you're already world class without needing to put any effort in, and that you are better than everyone else you are playing with.

You can't easily fix that sort of attitude. Even Ronaldo, who is about the most narcissistic footballer on the planet and would have some justification for opinions of that ilk doesn't think like that. The best players in the world, to whom Bostock used to compare himself just after he left Palace, have worked hard and knuckled down on the training ground day after day. By contrast I've heard from numerous people that Bostock has easily the worst attitude they have ever encountered. The stupid, stupid child.

He stupidly believes that God will lead him to glory and greatness. The sad thing is that whatever happens to him will b because the Big Man chose his path for him.

This would suggest that he failed to perform at Tottenham or the subsequent clubs. Compare this with Wayne Routledge for example, who has carved out a decent, if rather journeyman Premier League career since leaving Spurs.
It must suck to be on the cusp of Europe and keep getting pushed back.

I hate spurs for that reason. They want to be like Barca and develop players from their academy and then promote them to the first team. But once they come close to doing so, they have a panic attack, lose faith in the kids, sell him for peanuts and spend a crapload on some oplder name player that is only marginally better so they can feel they are doing something.

Spurs are THE most schizophrenic club in England. Galacticos or Academy, pick a strategy and stick to it. Till they figure out what they want to do, any kid near their academy system will probably feel like they're trapped in a bipolar relationship.

Let's be fair. He played 51 minutes for Swindon yesterday during which time they went 2-0 down. Then he came off & Swindon pulled back two goals.

"People been banging on about Bostock starting-how did he do,folks that were there?"

"He played like a midfielder playing up front. We wasn't that bad and had some good touches, but we needed a physical presence up front (like Williams) and that's not Bostock's game."

To be, or not to be, that is the question:

The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them? To die, to sleep,
No more; and by a sleep to say we end

Another inspiring performance then. In all seriousness, I would love to know exactly what happened when he left us and how he was advised. There is always more to it than meets the eye. He may be a t#at but how much of one may be the question. At the time I really did not see him in this position now.

Rightly or wrongly he doesn't see to be one for the trenches.

An individual rather than a team player.

I think that's why he'll continue to fail.

I was at the Swindon game yesterday and had no idea he was playing! They were truly awful except for a late flurry.

Been said a 1000 times but it was all so predictable.

1.Truely believed in his own way over the top hype

2.He's been ill advised all along by others seeking to gain

3.He's had far too much at a very young age

4.Incorrectly guided on and off the pitch meaning any ability he had has gone backwards, see 2.

5.Has a poor work rate and a **** attitude, see 1. and 3.

6.He won't admit it but any footballing self confidence he once had is now at rock bottom, it's a long way back


He's fast approaching 21 and shown absolutely nothing to suggest he's going to make it as a top level Pro, imo his hopes of a top flight career are now over, will he make a career in the lower leagues tbh i really can't see that either, his ego just won't allow it.

Another brilliant performance from the gifted one at the weekend as a non-used sub for a mid table league 1 side.

He really isn't/wasn't a twat. Everyone, including us, got hyped up over him, and then big clubs started showing interest in him. He was very young and very impressionable like most kids at that age. If he'd stayed, which may not have been a good thing considering the financial and uncertainty at Palace, then he would have developed at a more reasonable pace and still have time to be a Premiership player at a young age. Oh well, hindsight is always 20/20.
I think this thread is more about his dad and his agent than it is about him
