Bit of a drab England game against Hungary. Jack Grealish getting dropped for Bukayo The Great was amusing. Would have been nicer if he’d been able to rescue the game.
What I think we’re all loving is the decline of Harry Kane. The highest level in football requires the physical and mental working in tandem. The Spurs striker isn’t at the races in his head. His failed move this summer has totally rattled him. It is quite something to see how something like that can take from the best on the planet in your position, to a total bum in a matter of 3 months.
What was Daniel Levy thinking turning down that money? One of the shrewdest businessmen in football has been going through a midlife crisis. He sacked Poch for superstar Jose Mourinho. Now he’s turning down mega cash for a player in decline? Imagine the damage Spurs could have done with £120m this past summer. It’s stunning that he chose to keep a loyal player against his will… and pair him with Nuno.
THOMAS PARTEY SCORED AGAIN. I think that’s 4 goals in 4 games for Ghana. WHAT IS GOING ON?
Honestly, he gets in so many good positions, he really should be, at the very least, hitting the target. Imagine if he could pop up with 8 goals a season? Someone from midfield has to move the needle on goals. Hopefully this blip in form translates into Premier League games.
We also saw Emile Smith Rowe score a fantastic goal on the counter-attack for the U21 team. Goals shouldn’t be a problem this season once everyone clicks. It’s a confidence thing. We’re getting the ball into the right areas, now we need to start converting.
The left back position of Kieran Tierney was a guaranteed for him last season, but this time around, there’s a young talent making waves. Nuno Tavares scored a goal and bagged a couple of assists as Portugal U21s smashed Lichenstein. The Portuguese is super raw and there’s plenty to work on with his decision making, but it’s good to have a player breathing down the neck of KT who hasn’t had the brightest of starts.
William Saliba is now captaining the French U21 side. A fantastic honour for the player who is making his mark at Marseille and making it harder and harder to be ignored next summer. The club went out of its way to sign leaders this summer, it’s nice to know that we have one coming back to the club after a good loan.
Right, short one again today. See you in the comments. Also, take a watch of the podcast.
