    Sell Dele and Tanguy. Buy Sabitzer and Dybala. Job done.

    Player Watch...Dele Alli

    His goals and assists should be far better than that most of the time he's playing as a 10 or behind Harry in almost a free role. He has to hit his 2016/17 numbers, or get close to them, every season to allow him the luxury of playing that role. He's shown no ability to adapt to other...

    Nothing personal, i just haven't seen him develop his game in any real way and improve.I won't make excuses for that like a lot of people seem to. Hopefully he'll prove me and his doubters wrong next year but let's see.

    He's also been a millionaire since he was 18. Plenty have it FAR worse than he ever did. Look, i'm not saying he didn't do well to get where he is now , i'm saying he needs to quit making excuses about his body and all the stroppy hand-throwing and sulky looks on the bench. Then start delivering...

    Let's hope so. But i can't see how he fits into Jose's team. He struggled as a striker badly when Kane and Son were out. Jose has said he can't play as a midfielder. He doesn't have the pace or dribbling skills to play wide. IMO he can only play in a 433 as an AM where we already have GLC. Or...

    I know you picked 5 years because it will include his great numbers in 2016/17. Last 3 years it's closer to one in 5. And that's in systems that are set up to allow him to play an almost free role as a number 10. Very few top teams play a number 10 nowadays, why should we give him that luxury...

    Alright let's agree to disagree. Maybe i expect too much of him. Perhaps he is just a squad player who can chip in with the odd goal here and there. Let's just settle for that then.

    But his performances show me right? His numbers of goals and assists going backwards since 2017 show me right? Anyway it's not about me being right or wrong, it's about Dele not delivering on the pitch and the more people make excuses for that, the longer it goes on. He's lost his place for...

    Should be ahead of Hendry really. He's just a genius. I can't think of any sportsman more gifted in their chosen sport than Ronnie. He's basically the Maradona of snooker.

    A period in which he's lost his starting place for club and country? Are you saying he's had 2 great seasons? Stats can show whatever you want them to.

    The same one Jose didn't start at all once he had other fit options? The same one Jose said can't play as a midfielder..thought so. ;)

    So what? Where have i said he doesn't run enough? If KM's covered is the barometer, let's put Mo Farah in the team shall we, he'll outrun everyone. He covers a lot of ground, most of it to no effect, throwing his arms around. Great stuff.

    His problems come from not being tough enough mentally or physically. Also his inability to fit into tactical systems that don't allow him have a virtually free role as a number 10. Fannying around on Instagram and fashion modelling don't help either of those as far as i'm aware.

    I wouldn't say exemplary, that's probably over-stating it. It's his performances on the pitch that are the real issue. I think he's better off doing a bit less social media stuff. Clearly others don't.

    Well the manager seems to think like me which is why he never picked him at all once his other main players were fit. Could that be because he can see Dele for what he is, a luxury player without the strength, speed and athleticism needed at the highest level?
