2022/23 Dele Alli

Welcome to Barcelonaton FC
I think he should have been given more of a chance tbh, but when he has played, he's been poor - Palace aside where he turned the game and for that we should be grateful.

But people blindly backing Lampard here are probably ignoring the fact, or are unaware, that he spent a summer trying to bomb Rudiger out of Chelsea for absolutely no reason.

We've no idea what he's like behind the scenes or in training. Lampard was all happy to have him here but clearly there's something else other than football.

He doesn't get in the team based on his name, and isn't doing enough to force his way in either.

Really wished it had worked out and he found his mojo but wish him well all the same. A measured gamble unlike the high rolling that seems to be going on with the squad currently.

yeah look that's fine, I don't disagree, just saying Lampard made an absolute balls of the Rudiger thing.

And the only similarity between that and Dele for me is that there's been two games where Lampard has started Gordon and Gray and McNeil upfront instead of playing the lad that spent pre-season debutising in the false 9 role.

His tactics in the last two games have been crap and he should get criticism for that.

Dele, when he has come on, has played poorly too, albeit we have ironically enough looked more threatening with players more accustomed to playing central roles playing.

With nobody really knowing how our deal with Spurs was structured it may be more financialy beneficial to loan him for a season to get past any potential time frame constraints Levy put in place like, Can't be sold in the first 18 months without Spurs receiving a whacking great chunk of the sale over & above the 25% sell on fee others have previously mentioned. Just a guess though.
I would love to know what black magic we pulled on how this deal was structured.

The whole thing is so strange.

Fans: really sorry it didn't work out, shame he didn't get a real chance, there's player in there somewhere...

DA: IDGF who it is, but someone's paying me £100,000 week so I can stroll around/sit on the bench for next 2.5 years 😂
