England Boss Has Stopped Explaining To Dele Alli Why He’s Been Dropped
By Harry Hotspur -

England supremo Gareth Southgate has stopped checking in with Tottenham’s one time star man Dele Alli, as the 23-year-old still isn’t any closer to being reliable enough for an international call up.

The Sun are carrying the quotes that Dele Alli would have possibly wished to keep out of the public domain.

A fall from grace is tough enough, without having it spelled out in public.

Mauricio Pochettino told The Guardian last week that the ‘devil will return’, but it seems difficult to a precise ETA.

It would be unkind to ignore the fact that Dele Alli’s injuries have plagued him over the last year, with 3 separate incidents involving pulled hamstrings.

What everyone needs to see from Alli is a concerted effort to be as good as he can be – on the pitch.

Off-field activities have gradually irritated many, and Sky Sports pundit Roy Keane warned the boy that if he didn’t do something about his career trajectory, Dele may never play for England again.

    Marcus edwards can make more things (attacks) happen in a game than dier and Dele put together. As you know I love that young baller. He’s getting games games games which is exactly what he needs/needed. Gareth Southgate loves him and Sancho together and they will be back together again for England within 2 years (maybe less) you mark my words.

    The problem for Dier in particular is that Poch won’t stick with a settled team.It’s inevitable that Toby and Jan will return for the game tomorrow so Dier will probably drop to the bench if he appears at all.I hope not as they will be gone by next summer.
    It’s early days in his rehabilitation into the team,but the signs were there on Wednesday night,albeit against pretty poor opposition.I was one of his critics when he was playing in midfield,but I feel CB is his better position.It could be he can turn things around and possibly be the partner Maguire needs in the England side,although I suspect Southgate sees Stones in that role.He has got the devil in him when needed.
    Dele however has a lot more improving to do before he can even be considered.Although looking at the players Southgate picks some of them are not even playing for their clubs.What happened to his idea of players being picked on form?
