I’ve just read some accurate tweets by Spurs fans, who are really not happy with Eric Dier’s performances lately. I’ve been trying to point out his failings since the 1-0 loss to Man U, back in October, see below:
After my article on the 28th October, entitled Dire Straights, after Spurs had conceded an 81st minute winning goal against Man Utd, I rightly pointed out that Erik Dier was the main culprit, for losing Martial, and then failing to even chase him down, if you look at any pictures from that goal, Dier is standing still and Jan Vertonghen had sprinted across from the other side of the box, and slides in front of Martial before he scored. Several Spurs fans were outraged at my comments, so how do they like these apples?
Dier was also at fault with Leicester City’s first goal midweek, he cleared the ball straight to a Leicester player, then lost Vardy, and just stopped and watched him volley home.
Today against Watford he doesn’t mark anyone, he’s lost the player he was supposed to be marking, leaving Harry Kane to try and deffend at that first corner, and Watford score, look at the video or still pictures, he’s not marking anyone, and his main job is defending !!
Somebody wrote an article yesterday, that Dier is a ballplayer, well that’s a f……. laugh, in most games lately, his passing has been crap, and as for skills with the ball, like what ?
He sooooo over-rated, if he carries on like this, he can forget about any World Cup games!
It’s time for Mauricio to drop these ‘Stars’ who have been underperforming, Alli, Dier, Eriksen, make them work for their place in this team, they don’t try, it’s too easy for them, and the results of this are there for all to see.
Yes, we were unlucky against Leicester midweek, mainly due to not taking our chances, and today, unlucky that we played with only 10 men for nearly half the game.
I want us to start playing again, scoring the chances we make, but some players are just not at the races lately!
