    Its only a matter of time before it starts to click again for him, let the haters hate, they are scared of him.

    Reports we have put an £80,000 per week contract on the table,

    Is it enough for one of the brightest talents in the world?

    I think he reacted similarly to Dele's goal at Selhurst as well.

    I think his head's been turned. Not in that he wants to leave for another club but he seems to have a lot more off-field distractions.

    BT Sport documentaries & adverts, FIFA18 poster boy, changing agents, signing his tweets #DELE20 shows me his focus is not on his football. He seems more interested in building the 'Dele' brand, at the moment.

    More likely other people thinking they can make money out of him.

    He started last season in exactly the same way, we just need to accept that as a 21 year old footballer who sill has a lot to learn about the game is in poor form...it does tend to happen.

    I'm a bit concerned about the relationship between Dele and Harry. Where Dele always used to look for Harry at every opportunity, he barely passes to him now, and in the England game yesterday was actively turning away from chances to put Harry through, in favour of a worse option. Also Dele hasn't celebrated Harry's last few goals with him, whereas normally he's first there. When Harry scored his second at Huddersfield, everyone went over except Dele who just walked back to the halfway line.

    Although Dele seems generally very unhappy on the football pitch at the moment so maybe it's just that. But to me definitely seems as though there's been a bit of a breakdown between the 2.

    I've been slowly running out of patience with him this season, after championing him for the last couple of years. But I'm sure he'll sort himself out before long. I trust Pochettino.

    If Alli thinks he has it rough by Kane being a bit selfish, just wait till he plays at Real Madrid and tries to get the ball off Ronaldo!

    I think it's just a by-product of Dele's form at the moemnt. When you're struggling to get things going, you're going to get a bit frustrated and seeing a team mate bang them in for fun just emphasises that.

    Ultimately Kane (on his current form) will be hitting a few things he should probably lay-off to a team mate. DA strangely enough will be doing the same but mainly because he's trying to change his fortunes a little, but given his form it's just not coming off. Primarily this has been where he's lost the ball high up the pitch trying to beat a man lately.

    If they're both on form, then they're more likely to be linking up IMO (see Eriksen currently) and creating goals for eachother. Not sure what the fix is but maybe DA is just putting a bit too much pressure on himself and is trying to force things. I'm sure Poch will have seen things in close quarters and will have it sorted soon enough.

    Amazing that even international media are tricked to believe his a good player.

    He has absolutely no skill that would make him interesting for Barcelona.

    He wouldn't start if he went to Real, not straight away. They have Asensio who would be ahead of him and is a massive talent, Isco also just signed a new contract and they have Dani Ceballos who has a lot of potential and, rightfully, held in high regard by them. If anyone was interested it would be Barca, but despite their very good start to the season they are a mess and financially they are fucked despite the sale. The situation with Messi will be their biggest concern at the moment.

    Forget whether or not he is technically better than those you mention. he has scored 30 league goals in 70 starts for us as a non striker and he is only 21. Goals win games and end product is what makes him valuable. every team in the world will be interested in Dele and it is what would get him starts in even the best teams over technically better players.

    More amazing that everyone else who watches him is wrong and you are right.
