Hunter Godson, Brand Editor of The Players’ Tribune, took to Twitter to criticise Tottenham Hotspur defender Eric Dier after he was outplayed by Marcus Edwards on Tuesday night.
Tottenham were defeated 2-0 in Portugal by two late goals, and Edwards who left Spurs for the Portuguese club stood out for his excellent performance, which included a stunning run that nearly ended up in a goal.
During the first half, Edwards easily dribbled past Dier before taking on a number of his teammates and forcing Hugo Lloris into a save. Godson slammed Dier after the incident, mockingly tweeting that Edwards had ‘sent him back to Portugal.’
Besides being embarrassed by Edwards in the first half, Dier lost possession 7 times and gave away foul twice. But to be fair, he was not the only player who had a mare. Emerson Royal had a horrid game as well as he lost possession 10 times and was pretty easily dribbled past before Sporting scored their second.
And can we talk about Son? Is he the same player that won the golden boot last season? He looks far off it and it is a complete mystery. Some reports suggest Son hasn’t taken the signing of Richarlison well which has effected his performance and if so then that shows just how weak his mentality is.
There is a growing concern amongst the football experts and journalists regarding Conte’s persistent nod for Son who has not had a single good game this season. Tottenham legend and former boss Glenn Hoddle and MailOnline journalist Oli Gamp are just a few of those who have raised questions regarding the Italian’s decision.
It’s perhaps time for Conte to courage up and make the decision to drop Son for the inform Kulusevski who has been rather undeservingly benched. It would be a ruthless decision, but if it pays off, it will only make Tottenham’s bench stronger and more dangerous.
Lo celso imho has never had the energy required to play EPL football… the reason we conceded so many goals in the last 20-25 of games was that he & Tanguy were nearly always gassed… that statistic changed when either 1 or both were loaned out or subbed off
Same thing happened to Lo Celso, who had been one of our best players under Jose until he was signed permanently.
A case of the Adebayors?
Because the rest must be even worse. Which is hard to believe.
What about the rest indeed : Harry had a stinker and lost possession 19 times, and Rich. strayed offside too often. Agreed that Kulu should start but for any one of Kane, Son or Rich.
Incidentally,OT why does Kane take our free kicks?
His form has dropped since he was signed permanently… maybe hes homesick or doesnt like Conte’s methods
I hate to admit it,but Romero was equally culpable in their second goal.His attempt at challenging the Sporting player was feeble.
I thought Royal had morphed into a good defender but not such a great wingback according to some recently. Last night he was neither…
