Video Analysis | Did You Think Romero Had A Good Game Against West Ham?
By Harry Hotspur -

My strongest memories of Romero against West Ham were the ones above, where the Argentinian was removed from the action by the freight train that is Antonio. The truth is, our record signing had a much-improved game.

Cuti’s passing was significantly improved, up to 91% – where it ought to be,

The boy’s tackling was also much better, hitting 73%.

Losses weren’t great, but thankfully this was mainly in the West Ham half.

The Argentine also made 11 interceptions, 4 in the Hammers’ half.

So on balance, my opinion, based upon what I watched, wasn’t accurate.

I saw Kane talking to Romero during the Newcastle game and it was clear that Kane respects this guy. Kane is a top player and plays against Romero in training everyday. He will know better than any of us how good this guy is. If he was rubbish I doubt the current Kane would give him the time of day.

Romero stepped out of the defence several times yesterday and looked quality when he did so. I’m convinced this player is the best Argentinian we have signed since Ardiles. Looks like a leader and someone you can respect. His reaction to Fornells was what a Roy Keane or a Stuart Pearce would have done. I think Romero may be the one.

Harry…I agree with your synopsis and I believe that Romero will be a good center half going forward. He was trying his best to stay in front of Antonio and a slight nudge from Antonio which propelled Romero forward, thus appeared as though Antonio looked like he had the better of him. The commentator words of Antonio brushing Romero aside might also have influenced other people in believing that this was the case.
I like the way Romero handled Fornals later in the game. It was a 50:50 tackle and Fornals went down clutching his ankle as if it had been broken by Romero who if you can recall bent down over Fornals and said something to him. Hopefully it was something like get up you f%^king sissy. Now this is where I disagreed with the referee’s booking of a player. After Romero spoke to FornicatingNails, he sprang to his feet and immediately started attacking Romero.
Now someone please tell me why Fornals was not booked for assimilation as how the hell does someone writhing in pain spring back on their feet and feels no pain in the ankle that he was clutching????? This is happening far too often in the premier league and the referees should be more stern with these players and their faked injuries

Needs to learn the league. Italy is quite different I would imagine.

This is the problem with a ‘rebuild’ with no overlap, you’re bringing in players that have no time to acclimatise. Any issues these signings might have are exacerbated by Levy’s nonsensical and neglectful approach to the football and transfers. Joke mate…

Not as good as some people are making out I don’t think. Some are desperate for him to succeed, I think it will take a bit of time for him to bed into our league.

Same here. I just remember him being taken out of the game twice or three times by Antonio, who made him seem like an amateur.

The stats say that he’s a sound signing – if he can avoid contracting Lo Celsitis. How about we sign another CB to forge a partnership, rather than having Cuti babysit Sanchez or Dier?

All in all, it seems to me that there’s now a very clear hierarchy in the squad in terms of quality (first x second 11), with some players fluctuating between the 11s and not bothering to turn up for the second 11, as they think they’re too good for ECL games. Dele, Winks, Lo Celso are the main culprits here, I think.

How can Winks have the gall to say he’s not being given enough chances, is absolutely beyond me. Dele doesn’t say much these days, which is good, but his demeanour on the ECL pitch speaks volumes. Ditto Lo Celso. They just can’t be bothered in the ECL, and they do precious little in the PL. So what is their point exactly?

With Kane uninterested, Moura and Ndombele blowing hot and cold, and Reg, Dier, and Royal being unreliable, it is no wonder we struggle. That’s six out of 11. Jury’s out on Romero for me. I would only trust Lloris, Skipp, PEH and Son at the moment.

Not even half a team.
