93% Passing Accuracy Ace Silences Uniformed Spurs Fans With Classy Showing Against Blades
By Harry Hotspur -

Steven Bergwijn was forced to limit one of his social media accounts just a few weeks ago, after some frankly unhinged fans took it upon themselves to let the Dutch boy just how dreadful they thought he was. Thankfully, nobody needs this type of fan engagement, and we all moved on, and away from the dubious hate.

Today, Stevie had a much improved game and as we have learned, statistics do not lie, if anything they strip away emotion and shine a light upon what really happened. To achieve such a great passing accuracy in a forward position is frankly immense.

48-touches, our boy saw plenty of the ball and took a couple of pops on our opponents’ goal.

This was a great win against a side that were being put up as a banana skin game for Tottenham. This was a very bad game for fans that got themselves embroiled in the on-game commentary, not just in this place but all over Spurs Town.

Who wouldn’t have taken a 1-3 win at Bramhall Lane, ahead of the clash? That’s right, nobody!

Stats are deceptive. Sheffield Utd were píss poor, one win under their belt.

Yes, yes, hardworking player. He brings that in abundance. Technically very good and still adapting to the league. He’s missed some gilt edged chances in previous matches. Needs to start converting goals or assists, or both in a perfect world.

I’ll judge him at the end of the season.

Played a full game, and showed he’s improving his fitness levels, I hope he has realised the waste of time social media is.

Agree that bergwijn has to be given time and become more confident to take a shot on, as he often looks reluctant to have a crack. Just on your comment that stats dont lie, i couldnt disagree more. I constantly read that players like winks have had a good game as they have a 90% successful passing rate, but if that 90% is all backwards and the other 10% unsuccessful was all forward passes that went to the opposition, then this 90% pass rate is doing nothing to benefit the progression of the team. Stats dont tell the whole story.

Young, level-headed, hard-working guy who’s only going to get better. What’s not to love?

Much prefer him to the other options for his spot alongside Son and Kane.

Well done Stevie!!

Much better team game all round – much better balance between attack and defence.

Liked the look of Rodon – keen to see more of him. Showed great pace and composure on the ball.

We just need to consistently defend those balls into the box better on an individual basis and we can continue to improve!!

COYS!! More please.

Agreed. Make Rodon a permanent fixture of the side.

My heart sinks when I see Sanchez in the team. Ropey at best and can’t pass a ball. Rodon already looks a better player. More composed, solid in the air, can pass the ball. As H would say, “More, please”.

Rondon not only looks class but looks very much like captain material.

Like Sky commentator Bill Leslie, you’ve failed to mention that Bergwijn provided the sublime dink assist for Ndombele’s brilliant goal. The more toys & meaningless stats these guys have to play with, the crapper they get! When exactly did commentators stop , y’know, commentating on matches??

We can all have a pop at players between ourselves in debate and conversation, but giving players grief directly on their personal social media pages is just mass-bullying and disgusting.
I’ve not been entirely convinced by Stevie thus far, I have to admit, but he’s young and developing. I think he did himself proud today.

No denying his work ethic but was n’t Bergy bought to score goals??

5 goals and 10 assists at PSV before joining Spurs. 14 goals/13 assists and 8 goals/11 assists the seasons before. Clearly got both goals and assists in him, although at a lower level.

I don’t think he was bought necessarily to score goals Dave – centre forwards are bought to score goals – Bergy’s a midfielder. I’ve never questioned his work ethic or his desire. He’s just a bit green around the ears, and his passing and decision making is sometimes questionable, but I think with game time he has the ability to iron out those faults in his game. I remember not-so-very-long-ago, a certain player by the name of Harray Kane coming on for Defoe or Adebayor in the last 15 minutes, and thinking ‘Aw for God sake!’
But work your arse off, and a player can transform in a very quick space of time. Stevie has that ability.
