The boy Dier is a real puzzler for me. Whilst he’s happy to be either in defence or midfield, I’d have to ask the question ‘who cares, where does he play best?’
Is Dier going ever going to keep a fit player out of the backline or the midfield? The answer is not just ‘no’, but the question answers what Doer does – something I’ve been struggling with for some time.
He’s an understudy. Having made that mental breakthrough ladies and gentlemen, I’m going to view him in this new light. Is Dier winning friends on the international stage? Dunno, don’t care. But he seems happy enough.
