    Yeah it’s worth it
    The guys still a kid mentally
    Kane had a chef and was happily hooked up at his age
    Dele is working out how to cook baked beans

    Wasn't he recently seen hanging around with Grealish and Maddison?

    Spending time with ASBOs is not the action of a mature person.

    I found him likable but immature in the documentary. The bit where he hit KWP’s car at the airport and acted immaturely to cover his embarrassment, the pride at cooking baked beans in the microwave, the Haribo whilst playing PlayStation. He’s a kid and he acts like a kid. He is still young and had a tough upbringing by all accounts.

    I feel a bit sorry for him because I think he meant it when he said that the lads in the squad are like family to him. I think he’s about to find out why football clubs at the top aren’t like family. You either produce or you’re out and he hasn’t really produced for some time.

    He’s a good lad and has bags of potential. If he moves, I’d wish him only good things.

    I think he need a father figure from somewhere and someone to just educate him about the game. When Jose is showing him how to defend better his eyes glaze over as if he didn’t get it. But he did recognise it personally

    I think that he comes out of it quite well on the whole. He has a mischievous sense of humour, I think what some are seeing as immaturity, is playfulness. I think that his biggest problem is his choice in friends.

    It really seems that Mourinho was eager to work with Dele.
    But it's common sense to think that, even with enthusiasm, he'll only work with him for so long, only give him a certain number of chances, before he begins to treat him tougher if he's not seeing a response to instructions.
    You and me probably don't know what those specific instructions in-game are, but I say it's a fair bet that we haven't recently seen him performing quite how he's been asked.

    That’s Scott Parker when he’s with Jamie Redknapp

    TBF thats on Troy as he is hugely in with that family. Alli was in Dubai on holiday and turned up for drinks when he was there, I would hardly judge him on that.

    What? Harry Kane is not among the top passers in the world.

    It’s a Tragedy he wasn’t getting that kind of service himself. He could have have 5,6,7,8 goal involvements today.

    Now this is getting confusing! But agree with the gist of your conclusions:)

    If the thought of being replaced with Lingard can't motivate Alli then he well and truly is lost.
