    Love Poch but what on earth is he going on about here?


    The main thing Sissoko transitions is promising positions into throw-ins.

    Its quite clever from the Poch in two ways:

    * Gives Sissoko the much needed confidence that he's an important part of the squad, which could hopefully translate into better performances thus justifying his inclusion. As the Euro 2016 tournament showed, he can actually look like a decent player when he's properly motivated.

    * If you are trying to sell a player & trying to the get the most for him you don't tell potential buyers that he's crap. The value would just plummet & you would end up flogging him for peanuts. Hopefully, with the vote of confidence he's received from the manager translating into better performances, potential suitors may think, "maybe Sissoko could be one our most important players."

    Wishful thinking, but I have to believe that this is the strategy here; it's all I have to hold onto.

    Love Sissoko. LOVE him. Just a shame he is attempting to be a footballer, that's all.

    "Sometimes you think a way about someone because of first impressions and then they stick forever."
    Gaffer being wrong here. Sissoko re-impresses himself on me every time he plays.

    I've just been looking at a comparison of stats this season between him Dier and Dembele and actually, the stats are not all that different

    Perhaps MoPo can take him to Real Madrid when he leaves.

    This is epic trolling by poch on sissy's haters. :D

    A by product of trying to keep his stock high for when we flog, but hilarious to see the meltdown none-the-less.

    HITC are licking their lips at the many "Spurs fans react on Twitter to Poch's Sissoko comments" clockbait links they can post up on Newsnow!

    It's a game attempt by Poch to talk him up, and he is talking about one of our players exactly as he should.

    And while there is plenty of merit in the idea that Sissoko can run and has stamina - useful for transitions from attack to defense - he is a hopeless footballer.

    It's not his first touch alone that's the problem, it's that he plays like a guy who has to rotate himself around the ball rather than maneuver the ball in order to line up a pass or shot.

    And I'll admit to being glad we snatched him from under the noses of Everton at the time :sorry:
