Only played 51 minutes in four appearances for the Premier League but Spain don't hesitate to put him in the National squad. Does seem a bit strange that Nuno seems still unconvinced about his qualities.

I think it’s working on his defensive duties ,,,he has all the ability,,,I think Nuno should take a punt on playing him as the number 10 ,,,a lot more lively in possession and he does work to get the ball back ,,,more than Dele and Ndombele

It must be that Spain have a more defined role for him that Spurs do at present. I think he has the ability to do well. 

It seemed to stem from his first full game. 

He had a pretty good 1st half, but then was  switched to the right for the 2nd, where he hardly was involved. 

In the after match interview when asked to comment on him, Nuno, for some unknown reason, said there was work to do on him. He had possibly made an immediate decision on him, and put him in the box, 'for next season'. 

I like Gil and think he is just the sort of player who could shine for us. I will leave it to those ho know more about football whether he should start more in the EPL games.

Another in the long line of players that are good enough for their country - but not for their club!
Every Continental Club side blood the youngsters into the first team without fear because it is nowhere near as physical as the Premiere League - everyone says ours is the best - but could it be even better with a more technical outlook rather than physical?.

It’s also down to Nuno to be brave and play him as a number 10 ,,,he wants to play on the left side  but we do have sonny which most probably walks into any other team in the world ,,,,so Nuno has tried dele,,,and Ndombele there ,,,option is try Gil there ,,we were all calling for him to start against Arsenal,,

This lad will run at defenders and the fans have taken to him already. One thing is for certain which I have previously mentioned, his aggressive style will result in many a free kick for us in dangerous areas and I'd have him in the team against Newcastle without hesitation.

Agreed fella ,,,throw him in give him the 10 role he would cause panic and free up space for Kane to play as a striker and not drop off

With not getting game time at Spurs, it is not surprising not being given a start for his country. 

This guy was possibly the best buy we made if he was given the opportunity to to realise his potential. 

It wouldn't surprise me if he was starting to get pissed off. I hope I am wrong, but he is young and could easily react badly to the way Nuno appears to be ignoring his development. I would hate to see him go the way of the likes of Dele and Winks as an example.

Watched him last night against Italy and he has such a hunger for the ball. Always looking for a space and then demanding a pass. Such a refreshing change from the "Don't give the thing to me, I don't want it" attitude of some of our other players. I just hope he gets a full 90 minutes against Newcastle and a true chance to show what he is capable of.

People say he's too young and inexperienced and yet this 20 year old may well return to Tottenham next week with an International Trophy to his name, something not many can lay claim to, especially at Spurs.

Gil came on with 18 minutes remaining and got involved right away, bringing down a long ball with a neat pass to a teammate. He also came close to scoring a few minutes later when the ball fell to him, but the opposition defence blocked his effort.He was constantly looking to make clever runs, mostly operating in the half-spaces around the box, but generally being involved across the entire forward line. He weighed in with two shots and two crosses, took 23 touches of the ball, and made 15 passes with an 86.7 percent accuracy. Overall Bryan looks extremely comfortable in a Spain side brimming with exciting attacking talent.

Mate he was magic when he got on ,,,showed for the ball all the time ,,,he wants to make something happen all the time ,,,,he should be our 10 ,,,he is a wasp buzzing around always moving

Im not convinced of him. Especially for the price we had to pay that included Lamela. But maybe I’m too harsh and its too early to judge him.

I feel sorry for him, cause under Nuno he won’t develop. No one will

He's a 20 year old, extremely gifted and talented player, who already commands Spanish International selection. He needs integrating into Premier league football and positive handling. At his age confidence is everything so to know the manager and his team mates believe in his abilities gives him a massive boost. Bringing him on in the 84th minute as Nuno did with him against West Ham does little to inspire or motivate and only puts unnecessary pressure on Bryan to try and make an impact within such a short time on the pitch.

If the manager continues to use him in this fashion and only play him fully in ECL games then he will become disillusioned and extremely negative about his future at Spurs. I believe he has incredible potential but unless it is nurtured and encouraged then we will only see the real Bryan Gil at his next club, when he is inevitably either moved on by the management or puts in a transfer request. That would be such a waste.

I agree fella ,,I think Nuno should start him in the number 10 position ,,he would give Ndombele someone to pass to going forward .

gill has the skill and energy to make the rest off the forward line make there moves when he picks the ball up from midfield.

To me it sounds like, you are talking about a young Lamela who signed for us back in the days. I see a lot of similarities between the two, although I think Lamela had shown more at this age than Gil, but to be fair, the Spanish league is more difficult than the Italian, which became a playing ground for pseudo talents and pensioners.

If you are right, I hope the pressure won’t kill Gil as it did with Lamela. Gil is ambitious, but that makes players also careless. I won’t see him injured, because he wants to prove a point or try „the impossible“ to show his worth to Nuno!

But as you said, this has a lot to do with the manager and because we haven’t one (Nuno isn’t one), it will be hard for him to develop!

That could work, although I think he plays to his best in a MORE offensive formation on the right. In any case we have nothing to lose! Except the manager...

but I could live with that

I think Gill would relish the number 10 position,,,,he would have certain defensive duties without the ball ,,,,but when we have the ball he would have that freedom that a number 10 has ,,,he needs to be played ,,,he has the positional sense aswell ,,,if son moves inside from the left he would go out wide to fill that role .same if Moura came inside etc

Yeah mate ,,,but Nuno has those areas filled ,,,my thing is Gill is so talented there are various different positions he could play ,,but the number 10 would give him the freedom and also help with the different areas that sonny and Moura are trying to fill

Let's just hope that the injury he suffered tonight against Burnley is not too serious. Currently a suspected hamstring but all will be clearer tomorrow :thumb:We are trying to fight wars on so many fronts we cannot afford to keep losing troops.
