    Match Threads Inter Milan vs Spurs - Match Thread

    As supposedly-momentous season's go, this one's really not started off all that well. I find the Lloris drink driving incident the hardest to swallow. I'm really worried it speaks to a wider attitude problem within the squad. Too many getting too big for their boots after the World Cup???

    Got what we deserved. The defending at the end was pathetic, just like Watford. Headless chicken stuff. Lessons not learned.

    I'm late to the party: where was Dier?

    A keeper that lacks presence doesn't help.

    And again. Shocking defending. Three giant CBs that aren't winning headers.

    That was poor defending.

    Player Watch Player Watch: Eric Dier

    Dier will never get the praise he deserves. He's not there to spray the ball about, drive into the opposing box, hit free kicks or drop a shoulder and go on a dribble, and all to often that's how midfielders are judged.

    We're a stronger team defensively when Dier plays. Our system doesn't work if he's not there to slot in at the back when Toby or Jan step into the space created when our fullbacks push forward. You need a defender's instincts and positional sense to do that.

    He's an essential component in the team for me.

    Trippier for me. Lots of other good performances. Eriksen needs to toughen up. Poor for their goal.

    Hmmm. I'm reminded of Ross Barkley.

    Team v Fulham

    Agreed. We looked very at odds. Also, very noticeable how Dembele turned the tide when he came on. Amazing what happens when you have someone in midfield that doesn't give the ball way and retains possession (often on his own) relieves pressure off the back four.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd love Toby to stay as he's quality. Just got a feeling that he'll be gone and will only start / play in emergencies. Would love to be wrong.

    Can't see Toby starting (ever again), so doubt we'll get to see Tripps as wing back against Fulham. Still hoping he starts ahead of Aurier though as right back.
