    Ill admit it wasn't the most eloquently laid out post but I was drunk at the time off booze and spurs-hammering-those-blue-cunts induced delirium.

    Made this same point to my mates after the game - Souness giving his usual "Walker and Rose are great going forward - that's their strength" shit. Mate can you not just admit that they are great full backs because defensively they are sound as fuck. Nobody beats them one vs one which gives us huge strength defensively. In fact I'd go as far as to say Walker is more crucial for his defensive contribution than his offensive contribution.

    You don't have the defensive record we've had over the last 2 seasons by having full-backs that aren't very very good at defending.

    They are the nearest thing to our 1950's Push and Run wing backs as anything i've seen in my lifetime!

    Their pace going forward merely glosses over the fact that they are both excellent defenders... the fact Rose started out as a winger only helps him when going forward... but defensively, both of them are up there with whoever else Sky/BBC officially regard as 'quality' Full-backs!

    Agree fully that they don't get beaten one on one, but the issue is more that because they are so prone to getting forward, they are often well out of position should the opposition manage to launch a quick counter. However - and this is what Souness etc don't say - our CBs/DMs are very good at moving over and covering for them when this happens. It's almost like they've been coached to play that way, or something...

    I do love that he started out as a winger yet his only real weakness in my own opinion is his crossing/delivery.

    And not so long ago the general consensus on here suggested he'd only be remembered for that NLD goal

    How the times have changed . . .

    I never in a million years thought he would be any good. I remember back when he was still a winger and thinking "He'll be in the championship soon."

    Nice to see him skinning the "bestest left back in the world" (Milner) a few times in that!

    Never thought of them as schoolboy rivals, but both being from Yorkshire and the same age of course their paths crossed! Like how they've put their North/South rivalry behind and become the best of friends.

    Remember in the early days Rose used to be Benny's neighbour.

    That stuck out for me too. It speaks volumes about what was inherently wrong at Spurs for some time, and under HR. Players expecting to be picked and doing so, regardless of how they trained/performed and sliding games they didn't fancy. He also previously mentioned that he felt Harry didn't give him a fair crack at it.
