Brain fart/Championship grade/nervous… Several Spurs fans aren’t impressed with Rodon’s debut at all

By Harry Hotspur -

Social media fan reaction to Joe Rodon’s Premier League debut has been extremely mixed to put it mildly. Whilst the former Swansea City boy undoubtedly was competent in many of his involvements during today’s game against Chelsea, there were clearly several areas of concern. They were referenced in a kindly manner by José Mourinho after the game.

The big question I was left pondering after this game was ‘just how bad was Davinson Sanchez, that Rodon got the nod?’ I just do not see it. Not at all. I take a view that the he bottom line under José Mourinho is that mistakes are reduced to their bare minimum. In which case, what is Joe doing in Tottenham’s starting XI in such an important match?

Are these fans being overly harsh? Ladies and gentlemen, I hate to be the bearer of awkward news, but this Tottenham side are currently top of the Premier League and most of us would rather like to see us stay there!

There is no room for error from fans, you have to be perfection personified, no excuses when you pull on a Spurs shirt.

Silva had a worse debut in the PL making a howler in gifting WBA an easy goal,costing Chelsea points.

He was lucky the mistake he made at the end fell to Giroud!! Just like Zouma was lucky his mistake fell to LoCelso.

Think some of those comments are incredibly harsh, all players make mistakes so calling Joe out for a couple in this match is stronging it. He’s 23, knows he has some learning to do but to play your full debut in such a big, pressurised, London derby, he did ok.
José & Ledley have transformed Aurier & Dier for example in a few short months, so give this young lad a chance under their expert tutelage.

Didn’t think he was that bad, coped alright. Wonder if he was a Jose pick though. Doesn’t strike me as a Jose type signing somehow, age and nationality etc…

I thought Sanchez would get the nod, although he hasn’t been brilliant himself.

Some on social media wouldn’t be happy with Franz Beckenbauer at his peak playing in our defence. How many mistakes have seasoned pros like Alderweireld and Dier made and people are writing off a guy on his debut, just mind boggling.

Sanchez is another overpriced Poch clogger, He’s way too unreliable in a big game like this. Panics in possession and always has one absolute clanger in him. Its clear he is being sold asap so no point playing him if it inhibits the development of a promising defender like Rodon.

‘another overpriced Poch clogger’

What like Toby, Son, LoCelso, Tanguy. All terribly overpriced cloggers I must say! 😂

Sanchez was great in his first season and a half but lost his form after the World Cup. I still think there’s a player there.

Surprised you included LoCelso in making your point 1 goal & 2 assists in 35 appearences in the PL is a terrible return on the investment,for a so called playmaker.

I think you’re being a bit harsh there H. Considering it was the lad’s debut, against the top scoring team in the EPL, I thought he had a very decent game and for the most part looked quite comfortable on the ball. Abraham is an awkward customer, but for the majority of the game he handled him well.

Yes, it was a brain fart at the end and a real ‘heart in mouth’ moment, plus that one lost possession, which resulted in the Werner disallowed goal. However, overall, it was a promising debut and I think he showed that he can handle it at this level. A couple of mistakes, as noted, but he will learn from those.

FFS give the lad a chance. He was pretty impressive. Why do people seem so keen to knock players. He did really well.

Social media isn’t really the place to find measured opinion. It’s generally something is ‘amazing’ or something is the worst thing possible in the history of all humanity… 😂

Jose knows. Great point today. The goons must be swashed away as the fodder they are next weekend though
