Unless you actually go to games it’s impossible to see the work he puts in off the ball. I have a lot of time for Dele.And then there's the non-stop singling out of players for criticism and abuse. Now Dele is a target for some. What utter bullshit. The guy is young with a precocious talent that needs to be nurtured and protected. We sound like Goons when we slag him off. He's played a lower key role this season but put in some immense performances. That night at Dial Square's Islington campus will live long in the memory. But it's the hard graft that he's put in more recently that impresses me most.
I think he’s playing through the pain barrier for the club right now and has been fighting for fitness since the World Cup last year.
If anything I think due to our constant changes of formation and personnel his natural game has been affected more than most this season.
Great post btw
