- Our most overrated player by Spurs fans: Seems daft to say, but for me it’s Sissoko. Everyone is raving about him this season. Yes, he has put in some very solid performances and dug us out of a hole given Vic, Dembele and Diers injury issues, but all I see is a big lummox who is powerful, has a good engine but who in terms of footballing ability is a Championship player at best. He is woeful on the ball 99% of the time. Selling Dembele to China may have been a sensible business decision (although the money we made is pocket change nowadays) but it was a poor footballing one. He was back to full fitness, it would’ve been different games had he played against Chelsea, Burnley and particularly Arsenal who he always dominates against. Sissoko isn’t fit to lace Dembele’s boots IMO.

- Our most underrated player by Spurs fans: Toby. I know we all know he’s good, but I’ve heard Spurs fans saying we can cope if he goes, he’s 30 now etc. we’ve got Sanchez, which to me suggests they don’t appreciate just how good he actually is. He’s a legit world class centre back, but on top of that he has the leadership qualities that the likes of Foyth & Sanchez don’t (yet) have. Furthermore, his range of passing is superb - a great weapon in our arsenal in turning defence into attack and an outlet that we really miss when he doesn’t play. Apart from the odd poor moment he’s been excellent again this season, and what pissses me off is it appears he loves playing for Spurs, celebrates hard when we win, has a great relationship with Verts, yet we’re prepared to let him go in yet another ‘smart business decision’. We will not be able to replace him easily - if at all, and we will miss him phenomenally when he’s gone. Huge huge loss to the club and anyone that thinks otherwise is massively underrating him.

- Our most overrated player by oppo fans: Might not be as applicable now, but after the World Cup I saw fans of bigger clubs than ours saying they should move for Trippier. England rose the crest of a wave against poor opposition, he had some good games and scored that free kick, but even back then I was saying he’s not all that, can’t defend, is positionally poor especially when playing in a back 4 (which we were playing, as opposed to the 5 that England play). For me he has had an absolutely woeful season and needs selling in the summer - but we will keep the likes of him and sell off our best players in Dembele, Toby and Eriksen instead.

- Our most underrated player by oppo fans: Dele. They all hate him, which I like. But they don’t get just how good he is. As soon as he didn’t score 20 goals in season it’s ‘he’s peaked early, he’s lost it, he believes his own hype, blah blah’. They’re either too dumb or don’t watch us enough to appreciate his movement which pulls oppo players everywhere, his clever runs, his instinctive flicks, or how effective he is when he plays deep (goals went down but assist went up). Also don’t recognise how he scores crucial goals rather than stat padding; you can’t train someone into being as intelligent in their movement around the box as he is, it’s just natural. They hate him, so they underrate him - the trouble with a lot of modern fans is they watch stats more than games, which results in ill informed, one dimensional opinions.

Winks is so overrated. Spurs need an upgrade if they are to really progress.

Son is brilliant, but wildly inconsistent, which is something that rarely gets acknowledged these days.

All our players are inconsistent. Though, when they're on a roll there's no stopping them. The 10 day "much needed" break did us damage. Son was knocking em in game after game And before that so was Kane. Seems we play better when there's no delays between games.
