    I know how you feel...the Singapore rumours refuse to fully go away though.

    Did not do too well today, after being so dominant the past few games. I get the feeling that he has to do the work of RCB and RWB at times since Royal finds himself out of position at times defensively.

    I didn't think he played poorly today. Maybe his passing wasn't as expansive as it could be but that's mainly because the midfield was locked down and so the passing options weren't really there.

    He's been overall very good this season but I do think he was slightly at fault for the goal. Unlucky of course, and as a Spurs fan, I'm used to it. Tbf, most of the defense weren't at their best in that moment. You're right about the midfield though, Bissouma was very good today.

    What a player. He is someone that stands out for his performance win, lose or draw. I really believe that he’s in the top few centre backs in the league. He’s underrated by many over the club but will show just how good he is over the next year.

    That was a masterclass in reading and anticipating the game, we have a very special footballer on our hands.

    That tackle was beautiful. The ref went to blow his whistle for a foul and probably a red, then realised it was fudging beautiful

    That describes Romero perfectly!
    Brilliance always plays on the edge.
    He'll probably end up being the victim of brick refs quite often though.

    Superb today.
    And I love how he wins a key challenge with a spot-on, close-call tackle and then still manages to carry the ball forward in the same move.

    Where would you rank Romero compared with the other top defenders that we have had over the years?

    Think its a bit early to make those comparisons - I dont think you can talk about those things til someone has been at the club for say 3-4 years and you can differentiate between form and class. He has the potential to be right up there in my view given he's only just turned 24 and has all the attributes needed

    The tackle at the weekend was excellent and should be allowed. However, do that in a European game and it risks a red given that the studs on his left boot were showing. That shouldn't be the case, but the opponent would be rolling around on the floor and the speed of the challenge could easily end up with him off. If that happens, everyone would be saying that he shouldnt take that risk half way in to the opponent's half

    You can see that he knows he has to inspire things from the back
    He is an absolute hunk of burning love of a player and now that CFs know he will take them out there will be a fear factor
    Fully expect pool to milk it on Saturday

    Was annoyed with him celebrating in Maguire's face during the Utd match. But have to say he's been brilliant in recent games.

    I was critical of him earlier in the season, but his decision making is so much better now, he’s turned the risk factor down a bit and is far more dominant for it.

    Agreed. I loved his performance yesterday and many of his recent games. But next week will be a huge challenge for him. Will be very interested to see how he does. If he misses one of those challenges, he’ll be walking because he could do serious damage.

    As a centre back, usually your priority should be to ensure the striker doesn’t get past you which means unless you’re certain you’ll get it, just keep yourself between the ball and our goal. This fella ignores that most of the time and, to be fair, most of the time it pays off.

    I love him, I think he has potential to be world class but he still has to prove it against better opposition than Leicester B. A great game next week, against the best attack in the world at their stadium, would go a long way towards convincing me.
