i'd take one of my personal faves back right now - Benoit Assou-Ekotto
He'd be tearing up and down the wing all day at 33.
Not a huge fan of Davies at all but the lad kept it simple and played well today. Needed that bit of confidence
thought he was a complete passenger personally. i've never particularly had a problem with davies but he's been so meek and timid in everything he's done since getting into the side.
He's kind of like Windows 98. He can do the basics ok but we really need an update to get the full features a full back should offer.
Harsh to call him a passenger thought he did a good solid job today
The thing with ben is that he essentially only cuts inside. He doesn't have the speed to go around the outside. This means that most of his passes will be sideways or backwards because any forward pass would be on his weaker right foot.
My biggest concern was seeing him being out paced by Phil Bardsley..
Im not knocking him, but its almost a waste of a player to use him at wingback.
Hopefully he can upgrade to Windows 98SE then into XP Pro, if he goes into Vista mode we'll have to sell him to West Ham
Actually thought he had one of his better performances for Spurs today. Got involved, didn't do anything massively wrong, but wasn't a decisive factor either. But of course, he never gets anywhere near the part of the final third that Rose usually dominates.
Its DIer who is the big worry for me at the back. I have no clue what has happened to him this season, but he is very under par.
He's playing in defence not midfield that's what has happened to him
Disagree. The few times he has played in midfield this season has not been up to the standard he set last season. He has gone backwards in my opinion. Last season I was touting him as a future Spurs captain, on this season's performance, no way
Maybe if he was being played in midfield every game instead of defence he would be up to standard.
You can't expect him to put in stellar performances in cm playing the odd game here and there. Wanyama has come in and done extremely well and displaced him and dier is being shoe horned into the team in positions that are not he's best imo
I think he's very good as the right sided centre back of back three.
Thought davies did better today. Hopefully hes growing into the player we hoped he would be and push on. I get the feeling his confidence hasnt been to good for a while as at 1 point for a decent period literally everything he did was terrible. I hope hes now building better performances and better contributions to the team.
Though walker and dier were under par today. I actually feel veeery neeevy with dier at cb especially in a 2. Right now i feel we would be better playing victor there and dier in cm or bring in winks.
I agree he's better rcb compared to cb in a back 4 but he still has too many mistakes in him playing in defence at this point in time
he was made to look good in a 4-0 route but he literally could not play and I think we'd be the same team
