Opinionated Rating: Spurs Ace Who’s 25 In A Few Weeks Gets A Lavish 6/10
By Harry Hotspur -

An undeniable positive is that Spurs won and took one step closer to another final this evening. The negative is that despite playing Austria’s 7th best side, we still saw some inexplicably subpar performances.

DELE ALLI revisited his past glories in many respects, which means that there was a fair amount of fancy Dan stuff, which was undermined by the sort of stuff one can only imagine keeps nitpicking nasty people like Mourinho and I awake at night.

3 key passes. Then 20 times the boy lost possession of the ball.

16 ground duels were contested. The 24-year-old won just 4 of them

In respect of the explanations and the excuses, I’ve heard them all. Not for turning fans will undoubtedly cite the nutmeg that flashed across Wolfsberger AC’s goal, and I wish them well with that and their other efforts.

We saw 79 minutes of the Milton Keynes lad this evening, his first start since Marine, and on balance I’m still struggling to identify how superior the Austrians were to the Scousers.

Dele is potentially… let me stop you right there. He’s 25 in a few weeks. The potential has flown. Like a misplaced Milky Way bar, in one’s hand luggage.

Good win against the Austrian Bierkeller (pub) team. Nice to see Bale influence proceedings but we learn nothing against such poor opponents…

You can only beat what’s in front of you. We didn’t pick the opposition. 4-1 we go again.

Dele Ali is a great asset. He only cost £5mil and he must be worth at least £6mil now

Personally I thought Dele and GB looked like the candle had been lit. Smouldering it may be, but there were definite signs of life.

Sissoko however should never wear our shirt again. He’s not a very good footballer. Any sign of life has long since been extinguished.

Sissoko is yet another example of ENIC wasting everyone’s time…

Via SkySports:
Man of the match – Dele Alli
This was a big opportunity for Alli, who was handed his first start since clear-the-air talks with Mourinho, and he took it with an impressive showing in the number 10 position.
A sublime piece of skill almost saw him get on the scoresheet as he nutmegged a defender and got a shot away but goalkeeper Alexander Kofler made a block, with Eric Dier heading the resulting corner over.
Alli may not have got the goal his performance deserved but he showed his class throughout, flicking another ball inside for Bale to go close to a second following the restart.

So, yeah. It wasn’t a completely poor performance from him, but nowhere near a man of the match, and still riddled with many things Jose wants him to stop doing. Two tricks that were nice but didn’t lead to goals nor assists, 4 duels won out of 16, and 20 times he lost possession. Unfortunately, if you post numbers like this against Wolfsberger, you can’t expect to play against tougher teams regularly.

Anyway, it’s nice to see the boys learned from the past away matches in the EL and did what had to be done. The first half was pretty damn good, and Bale seemed like a very decent player.

Now please crush Wet Spam! I can’t stand those tossers…

Lol, Sly Sports. Man of the match. A sublime performance. An impressive showing in the number 10 position.
Who writes this shit?

Dele is clearly back to his stellar best having almost scored a goal and almost provided an assist against Wolfsberger.
For crying out loud. 🙄

People are failing to wobble their heads sufficiently.

P.s. I thought Bale looked pretty decent tonight too.
Eric Dier looks pretty decent some matches too. Eric should therefore be banging on the Chairman’s door in the morning demanding £1,000,000 a month.

Harry, I’m an Irish Spur, and as much as it pains me to say it, I do wonder whether Matt’s game might possibly improve if he were to train and play with his shorts around his ankles. Like Rocky chasing a a chicken in a ripped tracksuit.

Yeah, I never said he was worth the money because he scored against Wolfsberger, but it was at least an improvement. Will it lead to more contributions against better opposition? Probably not, because WAC were, well, garbage and would struggle to stay up in League 2.

At this point, I’m just glad we got anything out of the million-pounds-a-month boy.
