Can Alli help revive Spurs' season?
24/02/2021 | sport | football | 384
Boss Jose Mourinho says it is "amazing" to have Dele Alli back, so can the midfielder help revive Tottenham's form?

It's all in Jose's head. He's got to play to strengths. But can a leopard change his spots?
4-1-3-2 best formation from now to end of season. Just go for it. Nothing to lose.
Harry & Bale up top. Son on left wing pinging crosses. Ndombele middle high. Dele right of middle and swapping with Bale. Doherty and Regullon overlapping full backs. Holberg anchor shielding the centre backs.

It's a risky attacking formation you are suggesting. Maybe Hojbjerg and Ndombele can anchor the midfield with Dele behind Kane central, swopping occaisionally. Leaving Son on the left and Bale on the right, swopping occasionally. Then have the fullbacks priority to be defenders. Looks like it could work on paper but on the pitch ????

What is your problem with Brentford? You consistently make derogatory comments about them to the point of obsession. 'Hounslow bus shed' is not remotely amusing or geographically correct; their new stadium, which is now a train stop in Kew, is light years ahead of the old one and doesn't deserve to be sneered at. Oh and Barnsley won't be promoted in this decade.

It goes both ways though, too many fans believe every single thing about their club is perfect and anyone who criticises is talking nonsense regardless of how they put their view across and even if they provide some factual evidence to support it.

Example, if you think City's spending is OTT go on 1 of their HYS's then simply quote 1 of the many stats to support it and watch the replies you get.

It's a more athletic and taxing sport now. Not as tough, but unless you're boxing, the idea isn't to nobble top quality athletes.

Poch was fired for throwing away the CL final (we managed to lose to an underperforming Liverpool) and then failing to lift the squad the following season, even with all the expensive new signings he'd asked for.
There was a time when MU, BM, Barça and RM could pick and choose who they wanted from other clubs. Now Spurs don't sell any player unless they want to.

I think not, Deli Alli is a talented player when it suits him, much like his chum Lingard.
Jose won`t play him in the PL, and he won`t play Bale unless he has to.
Spurs need to sack The Toxic One asap if they want to achieve anything in football.

Crouch summed it up correctly. Has the ability but there's a question about his attitude. So unless the attitude is correct for every training session and every game then he won't become a regular. Managers , team mates and fans want to see the commitment. Until that happens he'll be in the supporting cast. Don't blame JM for demanding that.

Sir, you are so correct. He started to believe he wqas bigger than Spurs and dreamed of big money elsewhere, such as at PSG. Only after the January transfer window closed did he realise that he wasn't as sought after as he thought he was, so he biuckled down and started training with a better attitude. It is not a Manager's job to give someone a better attittude, its the player's responsibility.

He’s been good in a couple of games against terrible opposition this season. If he can perform in the PL then he’ll walk into the team.

What I find strange is that pundits don’t seem to realise that Ndombele has been much better and has replaced him in that midfield position. They all seem bemused as to why Dele isn’t starting, as a spurs fan it’s obvious.

I'm a lifelong Spuds fan. The comment is spot on and i wonder whether under the relative success under Poch (particulalry in the last few seasons) went to some of the players heads (and they just got fatigued and were dreaming of their next adventure - like Erikson.

Wasn't aware spurs had ever been a force!
Beat me to it my friend, BBC lovies aren't they bless em. I see we had Jermaine Genius' 'greatest goals' to 'celebrate' his birthday on here the other day. I literally didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Removed

I think its quite clear it was a general comment about the disproportionate amount of articles he seems to have about him for someone who isn't playing that much or really done anything at all silverware wise. Then again is he one of a very few who have entertainment agents so it might just be that.

The media fo make me laugh. One good game against a pub team and all of a sudden you are back. Clearly the lad has an attitude problem and until he sorts that he won't be playing in meaningful games.

Dele Alli sums up Spurs completely, World beaters one game, garbage the next, which is why they will not win anything this season ! something is wrong with the club they have good players but seem to be missing something ?
They for me need a Roy Keane at his peak type of player somebody to bully them into it they are too soft & gutless when it matters.

Any team in the EPL would be improved by Roy Keane at his peak. Hardly in depth genius to suggest that. How about Maradona at his peak too? Van Basten maybe?

It has been a difficult season for Tottenham's Dele Alli, but a wonder goal and two assists against Wolfsberger in the Europa League on Wednesday showcased what he still has to offer.
The 24-year-old midfielder has played just six times in the Premier League for Jose Mourinho's side this season and has not started a match in the competition since being hauled off at half-time
