Dele Alli was pance, but Davinson Sanchez looked the business.

Pochettino was brimming with praise for the new boy. “He was very good. The performance was solid. The good thing is that he was very calm and relaxed on the pitch.

“He was aggressive and played the ball. I’m very happy because he’s young and in the Premier League when you start to play and come from the Netherlands it’s always a big impact. But for him it was very good.”

It was an uncompromising start from the 21 year old who had a significant price tag hanging over his head. One time Spurs defender Graham Roberts hailed Sanchez as ‘incredible today’.

The Colombian was fleet of foot, dominating and not afraid to get stuck in. Which is coded language for getting away with two fouls in the in the first 6 minutes of play.

A promising start that suggested that it won’t be long until he looks like he’s been playing alongside Β Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen all his career.

    If he needs a slap then he should get a slap. Spare the rod and spoil the child 😁

      He’s nowhere near as good as Dele though.

  • MysteriousStranger September 10, 2017 at 5:14 pm

    So I’m clear on the rules, we’re not allowed to say Alli was OK yesterday? But we can call him names?

    • 61SpursNut🌰 September 10, 2017 at 5:15 pm

      You can, but on another blog.

      • MysteriousStranger September 10, 2017 at 5:31 pm

        Say he was OK or call him names?

          I suppose so.

    • ronwol196061 September 10, 2017 at 5:17 pm

      Highlight programmes are always going to make Alli look good. He does choose his moments.

      He’s no busy busy John Pratt…πŸ˜‰

      • MysteriousStranger September 10, 2017 at 5:31 pm

        I watched the full game. What do highlights have to do with it? Is that what you watched?

        • gloster1861 September 10, 2017 at 5:33 pm

          I’m saying if someone just saw Spurs on MOTD they think Dele was a hot potato. But
          If you are at the match you could get the hump with his on/off performance.

    • Harry Hotspur September 10, 2017 at 5:41 pm

      People are welcome to say what they want – I’m just bored being told he was fab yesterday by people who can’t string a coherent sentence together about yesterday’s game and yesterday’s game alone.

      That was the game I was commenting on and that game alone. Not other games. Just the one yesterday.

      Anyway, if anyone needs me I’ll be giving Ross Barkley a medical until further notice.

      • SpurAndy πŸ’Ο€ September 10, 2017 at 6:16 pm

        I agree, yesterday he wasn’t fab.

    Renata Sanches for Swansea looks 2 feet shorter than Marcus Edwards and they are ravung about him

    At half time the pundits on the radio are asking where his talent has gone. Bayern bought a did.

    • gloster1861 September 10, 2017 at 5:02 pm

      *dud. We’ve got the genuine Sanchez.

      • Aussie in Switzerland September 10, 2017 at 5:07 pm

        We’ve got the dirty Sanchez….cool

    • ronwol196061πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ September 10, 2017 at 5:06 pm

      He has talent but like Edrwards last year and Carroll at times..no weight
      He has talent its evident
      But ink needs a printer,blades need razors,bullets,guns

    • SpurAndy πŸ’Ο€ September 10, 2017 at 5:15 pm

      Didn’t he used to be in a singing duo with Renee?

  • Harry Hotspur September 10, 2017 at 4:47 pm

    I think there’s a ‘Ross Barkley’s Medical’ sized mental blockage in the blog today.

    F*ck last season – yesterday Dele Alli was piss poor.

    Joey Barton vs Opta – I could weep.

    • ronwol196061πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ September 10, 2017 at 5:02 pm

      Its a case Harry of ‘What did you do for me yesterday?’
      Not much
      But he can at any time
      He needs a kick up the arse

  • SpurAndy πŸ’Ο€ September 10, 2017 at 4:24 pm

    Really can’t get to excited about the Delli issue. If he keeps knocking in the goals like last season and we’re winning what’s the problem. So what if he acts a bit stupid at times and his stats are disappointing. He’s one of the few players in the PL that has genuine moments of brilliance which is what the games all about. Don’t really care if he thinks he’s a gangsta, I’ll just judge him at the end of each season as to whether he’s an asset or liability to THFC. Last year he was a definite asset, this year let’s see. Of course he’s not perfect yet time and again a player with genuine talent that would be sought after by other top European teams is deemed not good enough for us by some and needs to be sold. Don’t geddit.

    • ronwol196061πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ September 10, 2017 at 4:29 pm

      His attitude can be a pisser but I agree.The numbers talk.He needs a slap though,so Im with Harry on that

      • SpurAndy πŸ’Ο€ September 10, 2017 at 4:43 pm

        If he needs a slap then he should get a slap. Spare the rod and spoil the child 😁

  • ronwol196061πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ September 10, 2017 at 4:09 pm

    I watch newcastle come out in a counter…then they stoped went backwards
    Passed swuare and back then back to the winger who started all that.List acminute.kucjed it up and list possession.

    We have to make sure 90% if the time we are going forward.
    Yesterday was an example of doing that
    With Park the bus teams we have to hut them early on the break

    • SpurAndy πŸ’Ο€ September 10, 2017 at 4:04 pm

      I’ve seen bits of him when he played for Bayern. He was roobish. Although in his defence the bits I didn’t see he could have been OK I suppose.

      • ronwol196061πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ September 10, 2017 at 4:10 pm

        He has the right idea it seems but lacks the muscle so far to pull it off

  • ronwol196061πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ September 10, 2017 at 3:38 pm

  • PhilBealOG September 10, 2017 at 3:21 pm

    I thought that we needed a bit more height at the back last season to handle crosses and it looks like Sanchez gives us that. I really like having him in a back 3 between Toby and Jan. Sissoko still flatters to deceive. I counted just one completed pass in the second half. Dembele continues to look like a bad fit for Pochs tactics. When he is out there the creativity just dies. He’s a great player with the ball at his feet but this team needs incisive forward passing and he does not give them that. That’s where Ross B could be a big boost.

    Mattspurs

    Don’t know why you’re bashing a relatively normal performance from Dele – it’s what he always does, last season he chipped in with 20 goals though. I think whilst he can be woeful and risky in possession it’s his defensive work rate that makes it work – if he loses it he tracks back.

    I have to say, I’m getting increasingly bored with virgins trying to defend another second rate performance.

    Don’t like it, exercise some self control and click elsewhere.
