...I'll give him this - he's not THAT bad as our 5th choice RB (after Walker, Naughton, Dier, and Yedlin)...

...is one of the worst players I have ever seen play for us (been a supporter for 13 years). I know some are going to say "he wasn't so bad (last night)-- he had a decent game save for a couple of mistakes." Unfortunately, that's not true- he had an awful game, as usual. In fact the only thing you might say is that that wasn't his worst game in a Tottenham shirt, that, indeed, he's actually been poorer than last night's performance.

It's funny- I was describing him to a friend of mine with whom I was watching the match (a guy who's both new to football and new to Spurs), and I said that Chiriches is good for at least two truly horrendous, head-scratchingly awful plays per game, minimum. Then, literally seconds after I said this, there goes Vlad, doing one of his patented high-wire acts (you know the kind- wherein he gets himself into a bad position and then proceeds to dribble into an even worse one mere feet from goal). I swear it was like he heard me and wanted to demonstrate for my buddy what I was just talking about.

How is it possible for this guy to be this awful? Is he just uncoachable? Obviously he is talented with the ball at his feet-- but how could he be that bad at defending? Isn't he Romania's number one CB?

I think we're all waiting for him to turn some mythical corner and start playing like the steal we thought we might've gotten when the signing was first announced- but is that really going to happen? I'm simply amazed that a player we bought to defend can't actually defend. It's uncanny.
Are you 13?

I know I shouldn't, but I cannot wait for the day when there is a massive egg plastered over your face
Nothing would please me more than for Lamela to start turning in great performances. He needs to improve all aspects, not some aspects, all aspects of his game for that to happen. Eriksen has improved his tackling and his effective work rate since last season, so it can be done. But I think Lamela is only "passing through" and won't be here next season.
As I say if I am wrong I will be pleased for you to post an egg on face picture attached to this post.

Oh there's not lies there... If you want to review any of it go for it.. The fact you are one of the more blatant trolls on this site means you might as well not...
No- a bit older. But thanks!

Went through the thread and saw that there are 13 people agree who with me and think the guy's a liability, though!

According to this Romanian article, Napoli already wants to get rid (translated):
http://www.gsp.ro/international/str...a-ce-planuri-are-antrenorul-sarri-463406.html

Vlad Chiricheş came to Napoli in the summer from Tottenham . In England failed to adapt and came to Italy with great thoughts .

But nothing ! In Italy only has 3 games in Serie A, plus three European Cups . Most times it was up, so the club heads are another central defender.

Italian press claims that coach Maurizio asked Daniele Sarri to Pray , a defender for 21 years that Juventus bought from Empoli.

Sarri knows very well the time he coached Empoli and they consider the best option for Napoli .

As this team never stopped Juventus , Napoli tried to buy it and probably to escape Chiricheş , which has a fairly high salary , 1.3 million.

Wasn't there a proper bastard fight about this signing with his club's president at the time? A man who was believd be more than a little criminally-inclined and facing charges or in the slammer?

All very odd. Probably us laundering some money for someone as a favour.
