This is going to sting with Spurs fans.
Losing 5-0 at home to Liverpool was the latest in a catalogue of poor results this season to put alongside the 3-0 home reverse to West Ham and the 6-0 humiliation at Manchester City.
On Sunday, there were clear deficiencies at both left back and up front.
Kyle Naughton started on the left side of defence and was replaced by Zeki Fryers at half-time. Yet Benoit Assou-Ekotto is out on loan at QPR.
Sure, Tottenham have missed Danny Rose through injury but BAE is surely a capable replacement.
Up front, Roberto Soldado continued to struggle despite his hat-trick v Anzhi in midweek.
The most damning statistic of all is that Tottenham did not have a single shot on goal versus Liverpool.
Emmanuel Adebayor looks like a good option for Andre Villas-Boas – but the Portuguese boss doesn’t seem to want to use the Togo striker.
As soon as the final whistle blew, BAE posted the Tweet above.
