“No Eric your just not prem league standard!” Spurs fans reacts to Diers assessment of his season so far
By Bruce Grove -

Eric Dier has been slammed by Tottenham fans after he made an honest assessment of himself and his contribution to the team so far.

The defender is one of the first names on the team sheet under Jose Mourinho, with the Portuguese manager seeming to have a soft spot for his centre-back.

He has had a hand in some of Tottenham’s poor performances this season, but he claims that he has had a good season mostly and admits that sometimes he has been poor and that has also affected the team.

His comments were posted on Twitter and some fans were quick to jump on and let him know exactly how they feel about his contribution so far.

Considering that he has been almost an ever-present in the lineup this season, some made it clear to him that he hasn’t done enough to deserve the space he has in the team. Here are some of the reactions:

Enough chances. DIER & Sanchez, Winks, Lamela, Sissoko, Davies, Aurier, Lloris Bergwijn etc just not required standard. Sadly Toby too old. La Celso needs to stay fit or he needs shipping out too. We have to be ruthless. Even on Sunday morning you wont keep your place that long. Pope, Soucek, Grealish in. Most of all ENIC need to go , 1 trophy in 20 years. Wigan, Portsmouth, Leicester, Birm City & Swansea all done better let alone big boys

Narrow 2-1 City.20 wins in a row for Citeh against West Ham who took it to City and could have snatched a deserved last gasp equaliser.

Dier’s inability to understand (and own up to) just how sh*t he’s been is yet another reason to get rid. England international, 27, who has been here for years (since the start of Poch’s tenure) should be the cornerstone of the side, a leader who knows all about what it means to be Spurs, having essentially spent his entire senior career here.

Instead, he committed defensive harakiri against West Ham, Liverpool and Chelsea – and those are just the more recent examples where he cost us points. And he won’t take responsibility. I understand Kane’s words in the Amazon thing more and more every day.

Just get rid and bring in someone reliable please. Someone who will help bring us trophies, not just “that night when he kicked half the Chelsea team into touch” (and when we lost the title).

I thought he was a good player in DM but at CB he is too clumsy and against quality opposition he is out of his depth.

Agreed and yet he is one of the first names on the team sheet. Madness!!

If and when the penny finally drops that Rodon is a more effective centre back we can relax a little!!
