Watch Kulusevki’s Best Actions Against Southampton

By Harry Hotspur -

Dejan Kulusevski took a while to warm up but, once he had, there was a good case for the player being named Man Of The Match.

It was a fine performance where the Swede delivered much improved numbers in terms of many disciplines, including Total actions / successful, passing accuracy, and perhaps most notably, his tackling. Bar the first half hour or so, the Saints were under relentless pressure and Deki was probably on balance the biggest thorn in their side.

Kulu was outstanding H and the boy also seems to have a very focused and mature attitude. A humble demeanour when interviewed, but with that hint of arrogance on the field, that most top players have. I hate to use old cliches, but genuinely ‘the sky’s the limit’ for Kulu. He has a real chance to become another Sonny or Kane, in other words a really top player and to top it off he is only just 22 years old.

Kulu’s different class. Will be very special in time methinks, difficult to keep hold of special.

I bet Dier is looking forward to playing against Haaland.

Absolutely no one is looking forward to that. What a beast

Did anyone else think we pressed MUCH more against Soton than any game I can remember under Conte?

There was a big demo outside the Utd megastore by the anti Glazer protesters which forced it’s closure. Utd are in a real mess. I wonder if Poch fancies his chances if Ten Hag doesn’t last? For fans of Isco, he had disciplinary problems under both Zidane and Ancelotti and is a bullet dodged IMO.

Ten Hag needs time and a clear out of all the wasters there, and there’s quite a few…

Lol.. What was Ten hag doing though? He brought Tintin on as a false number 9 which was strange because he can’t play there very well.. Then moves him to cover the back four as a defensive midfielder.. He definitely can’t play there.

Isco to Sevilla on free transfer, probably could’ve done a job for us

I’m inclined to agree although he does appear to have lost his effectiveness since falling out of favour at Madrid.Perhaps he just needs a new challenge.We are crying out for his type of player.

We certainly need more creativity in the attacking midfield.Isco and Kulu feeding Kane and Son would have been interesting

Kulu was great. Reminds of Robben cutting inside from right.

Great start but next week and once the CL starts and we play 2x weekly will give us better indication of where we go.

Next week will be a good barometer of our progress having lost four times to Chelsea last season.It may be a good time to have a fixture like this as it will show up deficiencies and give us time if required to secure some more incomings

I must admit that I never thought he was quick enough to play in that position in the PL but he is deceptive. Somebody on Sky Sports compared him to Waddle this morning and he is one of my all time favourite Spurs players. The pundits are already tipping us to have a good season and at the minimum achieve a top four place which always worries me . When so called “experts” agree on anything, I am always inclined to take the other view. If we can shift the deadwood, maybe we can get the other recruits we need to make a serious challenge. I don’t think we are strong enough defensively and we lack creativity in midfield but there are encouraging signs. What I really like about Conte is that he clearly only wants to recruit/ coach and select players with the right mindset, in other words, players with a winning mentality. There’s no compromise with him but whether he last under Levy remains to be seen.

Kool as ice… He’s only 22 years old and already performs like a seasoned vet.. His left foot reminds me of Bales.

To me he’s got a bit of Robben about him.

MOTD tripping over themselves in praise of Deki. Conte polishing a real diamond of a player for us.

Conte has managed to polish two turds in Davies and Dier.. I thought they were both done.

Alas there was only so much he could do with Winky.

Winky’s problem is that there is so much more to playing in midfield that it’s very hard to coach. Coaching defenders is a lot simpler.

True. Initially I wasn’t crazy about 3 at the back but it seems to work well for Davies and Dier providing cover for each other. Plus one of the 3 is usually upfield, mostly Cuti so it can still be attacking.

MF is a different animal I agree.

“Polish” Davies, by playing him in the position where he excels for his country? Yeah, takes a real genius to do that.
