Found his level? Watch Former Spur begin again with a fine poacher’s goal

By Harry Hotspur -

The Dele Alli story is likely to be one that transcends into footballing folklore much as the way ‘do a Leeds’ did. After showing some promise at Tottenham, it all went wrong and after failing to take advantage of his situation at Hotspur Way, not to mention the mentorship of José Mourinho.

Now aged 26, the Englishman suffered notable humiliation in England. His move to Everton didn’t work, and Harry Redknapp described the transfer in the bluntest terms – as it was the former Spurs gaffer who recommended Alli.

“He was a disaster, a disaster. I watched him play, and he loses the ball, he walks and doesn’t run, I don’t know what’s happened to him.”

This goal against Ankaragücü in the Süper Lig on 04.09.2022is hopefully an indicator that Dele can at least finish his career at a reasonable level.

He’s gone to what is basically a pub league. He will shine on occasion of course he will. Steven Gerard was a good manager in a similar pub league north of the border.

There has never been a bigger fall from grace in PL football history. Dele is finished.

The End.

Came from MK and played his heart out to earn a bumper contract. Then rested on his arse with a smirk and a cigar and watched the £££ roll in.
It’s been hard to witness. They’ll probably make a film about him when his dosh runs out.

Regarding Tuchel it’s interesting to note that Conte has not yet signed a contract extension.

Pretty sure there’s an option to trigger a years extension, which should happen at the end of this season.. Then fingers and toes crossed he’ll sign a new longer one.. Lol.

This pantomime never fails. Contes doing his old worshipful master pose for his first shot as ENIC boss….all sudden Chelsea have “crisis” and Tuchels off leaving a nice Conte shaped hole. They won CL year or so ago and he was best thing since sliced bread now they just send him packing after couple of bad results. They all take turns…looks like Levy’s top 4 banks ok for another year. Good for him.

The picture says it all. He’s only been there 5 minutes and he’s telling people to sush. The thing with Dele is I don’t think he actually cares anymore. He’s getting £100k a week to saunter around the place, and no matter what happens will retire a multi-millionaire, and that suits him down to the ground.

You win the Champions League and you’re out on your ear within a year. Didn’t we lose in Zagreb too?

Now they’ve got the potentially toxic Boomerang on their books, they must have someone else lined up…

Potter is meant to be their main target if you believe Sky Sports with Chelsea also interested in speaking to Poch and Zidane. Boehly seems clueless to me as he plays head of recruitment but I wonder when the light is going to be shone on the Saudi Public Investment Fund’s links with Clearlake Capital, co-owners of CFC.
Poch at Chelsea, what larks!

Chelsea spent £250 million on players in the summer, Zagreb £5 million. I’d be a bit ticked off myself.

Premier League is going Hollywood, its a non stop 24 hour rolling circus, carnival, reality show.

The way Tuchels been acting on the pitch and in interviews suggested something was up behind the scenes.. Still all that money, plus they just got him Aubamayang.. Crazy decision considering he won the CL, but we don’t know the full story do we.

Listened to an Athletic blog with Mark Chapman and one of the journalists hinted that something was going on in Tuchels private life. Also said that one of the excuses given for sacking him was Chelsea wanted to remove all links to Abramovich from the club. Bit tough on Tuchel who I have to say seemed to represent the club quite well during the fall out from the war in Ukraine. Nobody else put themselves in the spotlight, no sign of Bruce Buck or Granovskia then.

There were some questionable tactics like playing their best attacking player – James – at CB and Pulisic at RB, and spending 120m on LBs, but I agree he was a standup guy during the Abramovich debacle and probably deserved a better fate.
