Dele Alli is slowly but surely wearing out his welcome with Mauricio Pochettino.

Gladys understands that whilst the Milton Keynes kid may be a smash hit amongst that section of of fans desperate to take someone/anyone to their hearts, yet amongst our coaching staff there’s a recurring niggle over Alli’s mentality.

The suggestion that Dele’s ‘bird’ to Bonzo was banterous is ambitious given the expression on his face as he pulled it, and these Daily Mail readers weren’t convinced much either.

The FIFA aren’t convinced it was ‘a laugh’ –ย spokesman said of the incident: ‘Please note that we are gathering evidence and cannot comment further at this stage.’

We were given a heads up in this blog recently when the 21 year old acted like a scalded dog after scoring against Burnley. So desperately poor was Dele’s first half performance at half time Pochettino was caused to share his dismay in the most succinct and direct way.

Alli’s typical performance is frequently a cynical affair, where he does the absolute minimum he can get away with. He very successfully distracts from this by scoring important goals. However his work rate is frequently abysmal and the suggestion that heโ€™s a team player is laughable.

This is going to be a challenging season for Spurs and there is never any room for passengers or players that cannot conduct themselves in manner that is fit and becoming in any Premier League side.

It is pretty obvious that Alli needs further nurturing and which is handy for the boy as Pochettino is rather good at this sort of thing.

Question is, is this good news for Alli?

    to those who argue that alli is only 21 , and therefore should be forgiven for his stupid and frequently violent actions..its only to be expected etc etc ad nauseum….id say remember greaves …a thousand times better than alli at 19 ,and didnt need to act like a street thug to get noticed….bobby charlton ..never even booked i believe in his career….those are just 2 players that alli couldnt even come close to ..there are of course many more…alli .largely is a product of the media,skillfull maybe but more a liability than an asset…he will cost spurs dear ..he allready has…..and unless he grows up ,will continue to do so….

    said a little while ago stop trying to impress people with your stupid flicks tricks and nutmegs and just get the ball down make an assist or put the ball in the onion bag , then take the piss don’t draw attention to yourself you will now be under constant scrutiny from pundits journalists refs supporters but the one he needs to worry about is potch I bet he’s a right handful

    Er, no.
    He is in the right place at the right time. Fabulous movement.
    It’s like Mark Lawrenson bemoaning Berbatov… he just can’t see that if you are standing in the right place there is no necessity to run about just to look busy.
    I suspect Poch is very happy with Dele.

      • AntSpurs September 5, 2017 at 10:20 pm

        His sending off against Ghent was fucking stupid and cost us the game and the 3 games this year. It is a problem which I hope he straightens out.

  • AntSpurs September 5, 2017 at 9:50 pm

    Dele is a completely different player to Stevie G or Frank Lampard. For goals and assists he’s already proven. He is unorthodox, he’s clever and his vision, awareness is razor sharp. He knows what he’s going to do well before he gets the ball. A dummy or a flick although at times a little showboaty, can turn what would normally be a five minute build up into a quick attack with the opposition all out of sorts. He’s always thinking, finding the space and where the players are around him. If he’s not, it just comes natural…even better. He dives, he’s petulant, he’s immature at times, he goes missing but he only needs one chance or two and it’s in the back of the net for him or someone else. He’s exciting and I’m sure if he was at Madrid, Barca etc he’d do the same and be loved for it. We need to keep players like him who don’t come round very often. Dele and Kane together are as good as any other partnership going. He’ll
    score more than 20 this year and maybe he’ll be off. Poch should do everything to keep him.

    • Tottenham central September 5, 2017 at 10:06 pm

      I enjoyed reading that. All that good stuff yes. But I think his feet are not as good as he thinks they are. Thats just my opinion.

      • AntSpurs September 5, 2017 at 10:15 pm

        He’s still a yoot and he’s got a bit to learn but some of it is in his nature and won’t change. It’s up to him to make sure that the good stuff far outweighs than silly bollocks. Some of the things he does is pure brilliance. I’m not sure also that was aimed at the ref. Walkerncould have had a dig at him diving and Dele was telling him to piss of ‘traitor’. Who knows but he should know better.

    If Pooch is the wonder coach and man manager that he is reputed to be then he has to get hold of Ali and make him realise that he is listening to much to the media and soundbites about what a legend he already is. He is becoming a legend but not at football but at becoming a twat you see in nightclubs up and down the country who think they are all gangsta’s. I fear however that he will not knuckle down and prove himself through application and results but will seek to leave at the first opportunity he can to get more wonga, model girlfriends and be seen in all the best celebrity stink holes. He has achieved nothing of note at the moment and he has gone backwards of late thinking all he has to do is step out onto the pitch. Dier is another one who has believed what he reads in the media. He is a very average player with no particular outstanding skill except his lion heart which he showed when he first joined and which endeared him to Pooch and the supporters, No surprise that he is best buddies with Deli is it?

  • Dave September 5, 2017 at 9:24 pm

    Just this once, HH, I agree with you. For an, apparently , ยฃ150m player, he is little more than a squad player. His England performances match his Club performances. He lost the ball in midfield, against Burnley, which led indirectly to us losing two points. I am still waiting to see something, anything, that shows his apparent worth. Reportedly he was waiting for B or RM to make him an offer. We can be assured, on current standards of play that offer is far in the future. To quote Mr Samuels, a fine reporter from the Mail, “stop this insipid play’. If he is banned for the finger, let’s hope he doesn’t get selected for the WC. He will be banned for the first game. I am a Spurs STH. 250 M? Take it.

  • norman wisdom September 5, 2017 at 6:32 pm

    im beginning to wonder if alli is becoming a bit of a liability….h es allready managed to rule himself out of first 3 of spurs european matches…now he might well rule himself out of a few more because of this….but theres more i was a bit confused by his celebration/non celebration of his goal against burnley…his body language was distinctly odd on that occasion. ever the pessimist i find myself wondering if the whole team ethic thingy is getting a bit frayed at the edges…..walker wanted to go and went…dier it seems would have gone to man u if allowed…rose plainly has had enough…alderweireld is kicking up…janssen is disobeying orders …lamela is on an extended holiday,and if that aint enough aurier seems as though he might be a disciplinary nightmare….and….to me sanchez judging by his utube clips doesnt seem up to much…..fyoth however judged on a 15 second utube clip looks like beckenbauer in his prime lol

      Yeah that too, I get he needs to wind his neck in a tad and keep his feet firmly on the ground but i think hes not doing too bad for a player of his age. Also its not his faut Poch seems to have given him a free role behind Kane. Maybe he does need a stint playing deeper and working harder for the team. Time will tell if he becomes the player he should or just become another wasted talent but for now i aint gonna give him a hard time.

  • JohnnyPaycheck September 5, 2017 at 5:24 pm

    I’m beginning to worry Harry – I’m finding myself in agreement with you. Dele has fantastic talent but does tend to go missing for large portions of se games. I really hope he can fulfill his full potential.

    Ronan

    There are players who need to kick on a lot more urgently than Dele alli. He scored 18 PL goals from midfield last season, and laid on 17 PL assists, at the age of 20. Heโ€™s our top scorer this season too.

    The ENTIRE point is looking beyond the goals…

    • Ronan September 5, 2017 at 4:55 pm

      How about the assists?

      • Harry Hotspur September 5, 2017 at 5:21 pm

        I’m not your PA, you make your case against him being a twat.

    • ronwol196061๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ September 5, 2017 at 5:22 pm

      Harry so Trumps persuasion tactics are not looking at the goals?
      LOL!!!

      • Harry Hotspur September 5, 2017 at 5:56 pm

        Alli was compared to Gerrard and Lampard PURELY BECAUSE OF GOALS and it was the worst thing that could have happened.

        He’s about 300 million miles away from being anywhere as good as either of those players.

        Anyone who refuses auto acknowledge this needs the class of help I cannot provide.

        He’s a fraud.

    • WitTank September 5, 2017 at 5:26 pm

      Apart from his goals and assists, what has Alli given to us?

      I think the point is that his all round play needs developing. He floats around doing nothing for alot of the time and quite often loses possession (certainly against the better teams & international sides) when attempting fancy stuff.

      Some coach or journo, cant quite recall, said of him in his MK days “He always gives you something”. I think this may imply just what we are speaking about here, the odd moment of brilliance interspersed by long periods of not really doing too much.

      Poch hopefully will drum it into him as everyone including Alli wants to see him fulfill his potential.

      • Ronan September 5, 2017 at 5:34 pm

        Please name one midfielder in PL history who has scored and created the number of goals Dele has by the tender age of 20. Which young midfielders doesn’t he match up to, in terms of influencing games?

        • WitTank September 5, 2017 at 5:40 pm

          Nobody is doubting that side of his game.
          You need to see it from the bigger picture of how much better he can become.
          My fear all along with him is He’ll end up believing his own publicity.

        • Al September 6, 2017 at 2:05 am

          Yes Mr Keating, but be honest and admit that he ain’t offering anything else when not scoring (or assisting the season before last).

          Listen, if he does the ‘score 20 and do fuck all else’ thing for five years in a row plus, we’ll probably get off his back, begrudgingly. But when it’s one year, we’re entitled to ask for more the season after.

      • Harry Hotspur September 5, 2017 at 5:51 pm

        Correct.

    • DDS September 5, 2017 at 5:46 pm

      I’ve been saying for quite some time that if you are going to say that he gets 18 goals from midfield, you also have to ask how he plays as a midfielder.
      He’s a poor dribbler, his passing is hit and miss, he ‘gets about a bit’ certainly but he simply doesn’t do enough either defensively or creatively to play him in midfield.

      Consider this; a defender who gets on the end of crosses and scores 8 a season. Great, right? But what if he’s frequently out of position and not very good in a one-on-one?

      Either you stick him in midfield and hope for the best or you drop him but he isn’t good enough to be a defender. Dele isn’t good enough to be a midfielder.

      • Ronan September 5, 2017 at 6:08 pm

        Sure, he only laid on 17 PL assists last season, as well as scoring the 18 goals. It’s why he’s rated the best of his age in the country. But fair enough, you’ve clocked other 21-year-old midfielders who do more, offer far more. Well just name a few of them, so I know the standard he’s falling short of.

        • Harry Hotspur September 5, 2017 at 6:20 pm

    Personally I don’t mind that he acts like a buffoon sometimes, he’s only a kid and it’s good to have some characters in football otherwise we’d have less interesting things to talk about. But for me he really needs to kick on as a footballer now. In his first few appearances he managed to fool a few top players with his cheeky nutmegs, but now that he’s been with us for two full seasons all rival teams have wised up to his tricks and he’s becoming less effective. Was notable in last night’s game that he was still trying the same thing time after time, and he was losing the ball each time let alone managing to beat a player

    • Wig September 5, 2017 at 3:51 pm

      Not to mention that when he does beat a player his first instinct appears to be to fall over to try to win a free kick. He needs to kick that out of his game

  • Harry Hotspur September 5, 2017 at 3:25 pm

    Anyone would think Dele had won something and was due some latitude.

    Instead we have a wanker who has to be shouted at during half time when playing Burnley.

    blah blah blahโ€ฆ. yes it was petulant and stupid but the lad is a fantastic player who needs to be pulled into line.
    This whole middle finger salute furore reeks of faux outrage. Who actually cares, honestly?

    Clearly you will when he gets sold next summer.

    He’s an undisciplined runt.

    I’d sell him without blinking.

  • Hartley September 5, 2017 at 3:21 pm

    I think he should be hung, drawn and quartered with immediate effect, holding a finger up while playing a football game is an absolute indefensible action which cannot be condoned and puts into perspective North Koreas’ recent actions.

  • Jim,Newry Spur. September 5, 2017 at 3:18 pm

    Anytime I have seen Dele, play for England the one area that can’t be criticised is his workrate, he always seems to be on the move, the problem is the quality of ball and lack of vision from the midfield, I think his frustration comes from working with second rate talent, ie Livermore.

  • grittyspur September 5, 2017 at 3:15 pm

    That’s why you break ’em in slowly!

  • ronwol196061๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ September 5, 2017 at 3:06 pm

    • ronwol196061๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ September 5, 2017 at 3:08 pm

      Id sell Dele and Buy the biter Suarez

        We could probably get Diego Costa, he’s a standup guy oh wait….

  • gus September 5, 2017 at 2:59 pm

    Del Boy has all the signs of a young guy whose meteoric rise has him believing he’s all that, but he isn’t the finished article. Yet.

    • Tottenham central September 5, 2017 at 3:00 pm

      Dont believe the hype its a sequel.

      • Tottenham central September 5, 2017 at 3:09 pm

        Micky hazard was better than him. Saw him driving his black rat a little while ago. Met him at Tottenham sports centre. Lovely chap

        • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? September 5, 2017 at 4:12 pm

          I’d av mickey and Stevie Sedgley over Dele all day….

            • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? September 5, 2017 at 4:18 pm

              Yeah! He was one of my favourite players.

    • MysteriousStranger September 5, 2017 at 3:05 pm

      He’s been a long way ahead of the curve compared to Bale, at the same age. He’s a massive talent, and our 2nd best player at this stage behind Kane without any question.

      He will leave for big money. This is inevitable. Is it worth slating him any more while we have him?

      • McG September 5, 2017 at 3:07 pm

        Nope.

      • SpurAndy ๐Ÿ’ฯ€ September 5, 2017 at 3:22 pm

        It would seem his temperament could be his achilles. However his football talent is up there with the best. I thought yesterday he really seemed up for it and not just going through the motions. I’m happy to put up with the odd stupid act as long as he’s not doing a sulk as he’s a special talent that we will probably lose in the near future and will regret not having him as we do with Bale. Just my opinion.

  • Tottenham central September 5, 2017 at 2:56 pm

    Deles not a great player. He’s just a good player. Not saying he wont be a great player one day. Bang average at present. That’s only my little opinion.

  • 61SpursNut๐ŸŒฐ September 5, 2017 at 2:51 pm

    He will get a ban. It may benefit us in the short term, but long term I think he’s toast unless he grows up fast.

    • HornDoggerMan September 5, 2017 at 2:53 pm

      That is what is so baffling. He already has a CL ban, now he could have a national team sit down. He doesn’t seem stupid but his actions tell a different story.

      • McG September 5, 2017 at 3:06 pm

        He’s 21 that’s all. Gazza weren’t much better, cantona, Lampard had his troubles too. Still gonna be a great player for years to come. We’ll cash in, might as well just enjoy having him for a year or two…

        • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? September 5, 2017 at 4:17 pm

          You knew Gazza was special though. Even if early on he was learning how to channel his talent. By 23 he was dominating Lothar Matthaeus.

  • McG September 5, 2017 at 2:50 pm

    That was never aimed at Bonzo, nice try tho! Wonder if it’ll work…

  • HornDoggerMan September 5, 2017 at 2:48 pm

    Dele appears to be walking on thin ice. I don’t get it. He has all of this talent yet he acts like an idiot. If this is his way of angling for the big money transfer he is either getting terrible advise or is woefully immature.

    • MysteriousStranger September 5, 2017 at 2:53 pm

      He doesn’t need to do anything like this “to get a transfer”. Like Suarez, his talent will supercede any concerns about his questionable on field behaviour and he’ll go anyway, lining Levy’s pockets in the process, who will be delighted.

      • HornDoggerMan September 5, 2017 at 2:55 pm

        I know but it is certainly a poor way to conduct yourself. Sign of the times I guess.
