Fucking hell, if that was Dier doing a good job and "what was asked" I'd hate to see what this (Bournemouth's shot map) would like like if he fucked it up:Did the job he was on the pitch to do, the Jose plan was to make B'mouth shoot from distance by stopping them getting to the byline and crossing and by having a screen in front of the back four. Dier whilst still clearly not match fit was the guy who just roamed across the centre of the pitch getting in the way ... not pretty but effective
B'mouth managed 20 shots, which is huge for any away side, but Gazza made just four saves. When we lost focus at the end a free-kick and B'mouth getting behind the FB's cost us two goals, all too little too late but showed where B'mouth are good.
Dier wasn't great, but he did what was asked well enough and lasted a full 96 minutes, clear signs of the player he once was, he's only 25 defensive midfielders are at their best in the late twenties and early thirties, he has time.
Stick to bashing Sissoko ... just being an even bigger idiot by picking on another player won't help your reputation ... in fact probably best if you say nothing about players you don't like .. it just makes you look silly - "The Dier Zone" what the fuck is that?Fucking hell, if that was Dier doing a good job and "what was asked" I'd hate to see what this (Bournemouth's shot map) would like like if he fucked it up:
All of these shots are coming from the "Dier" zone.
It's not all Dier's fault (just like it's not his credit that Bournemouth's shooting was shit), we defended fucking badly as a team throughout, but we desperately need a proper DM who can actually protect the defence and simultaneously play a modicum of football, Dier struggles with both.
"The Dier Zone" what the fuck is that?
Stop being a lame mate. I never said anything when people stated Alli was poor. It was when people (like yourself) took it a step too far and brought up non football related stuff that I said something.How predictable that you defend that but have a mini crisis over someone saying Dele was poor
