After that Spurs goal there was some debate as to whether his heavy touch to take it away from the defender was on purpose or whether he miscontrolled it and it worked out. I think it's safe to say, it was just a shite touch.

I've just watched it back. He scuffed the fucker straight into the ground  :lol:

Simple fact is he’s good up to a point, 25 yards out, then he turns into a crock of shit .

 

Solve that and you have a handful of a player .

The usual frustrating mixture really. He lost the ball a lot, but at times he held it well and created some good situations.

 

I think the scoring problem will always be there, because he's not a finisher, either with his head or his feet.

Maybe they should be playing him on the left then he has to cut in and shoot with his right foot whereas now he comes in from the right and feels like he has to cross because it’s an awkward angle to shoot. Or maybe he should learn to shoot with his left foot.

From the clubs point of view , you have paid £40m for something, you can see there’s something in him, there was a reason we paid that much , the key needs to be found .Either the player,  who never looks happy by the way needs to find it or our coaching staff need to. He’s a laughing stock in the PL I’m afraid but from a clubs point of view someone the just can’t afford to leave out.It’s a terrible situation with him .

 

Been our best player last 2 games, grim.

I think he's struggling with the extra pace of the Premiership. When put under pressure, his touch on the ball and awkward movements make him lose possession too often. If he does manage to create space with his physicality (and he's learning to do this a bit better now), then he has the footballing intelligence to link well with his team mates.

 

One thing that I don't doubt is his character. He's handling the negative attention well, never hides and keeps trying. Lots of players would have retreated into their shells.

Physicality isn’t even a word.

 

Oh yes it is

 

Made up over the last couple years by pundits. It’s not a real word.

 

It’s like saying Brucialty is a word

The amount of times he falls over without winning a free kick. Only seen Perez reach those levels.

 

Also, he gives away like 10 free kicks every game by being baited to push some defender in the back. So annoying

I'm pretty sure it's an American invention (in the context that sports pundits use it), and actually (in actuality?) goes back a good few decades.

No doubt he’s useless, but singel out a player after a game like this is just stupid.

 

Everyone without exception was s*** today.

 

They were, but, this useless c*** has been total s*** from the moment he walked through the door. His lack of effort in every single game is unforgivable.
