    Says a lot about how many injuries we've had in midfield over the last couple of years.

    Something very strange happened today - Sissoko managed to play most of a game of football and only made me laugh at him twice. Another step up in his quest to become a real footballer.

    That was one of the two. The other was when he ran past 4 Everton players, half the length of the pitch to just look up and tamely pass it to another of them.

    You want Sissoko anywhere on the pitch but in the box and that includes our own. That shinner was a result of his proximity to the goal.

    On a serious note, another energetic display, solid in his defensive work and great at driving the ball forward.

    I thought he was excellent. He puts out more fires per game than anybody at the moment, his passing was quick and accurate. He's been a very solid performer this season.

    The guy defines "putting in a shift" his short passing has gotten a lot better, he did a ton of clean up work today. What I would give to see him finish one of those runs with a goal, or just a random screamer for way out ...

    I'll try to find the clip where Eriksen congratulates him for the 100 and says he's the kind of player that will run right into someone and come out the other side with the ball ... hilarious ..

    Eriksen is full of praise but still comes in and wipes a big bogey (1:12) on Moussa's shoulder :(

    That’s nothing compared to the dissing that Eriksen gave Sissoko on Match of the Day 2 last night!

    I love him, even the occasional spaz. If Poch can coach out the spaz, and get him shooting on target, we'll struggle to keep him!

    I think he'll always spaz a bit because nothing comes naturally to him, in a football sense. He's a natural athlete who plays football. But he is bringing a lot to our midfield at the moment and I hope we keep.

    We seem to be playing with a 3 in midfield a lot this season (or, if it's a diamond, then the other 3 points of it make up the centre midfield). I'd like to see Eriksen/Winks play for the spot on the left of the 3, Dier and a new signing compete for the spot in the middle, and Sissoko plus a new signing compete for the spot on the right of centre. Declan-Rice and Doucore (sp?) would do imo. Let go of Dembele and Wanyama.

    A very good game yesterday, he never stops moving and passed the ball quickly and on target. If he keeps this up he will be among the choices for our player of the season.

    Indeed. He won’t get it because the consistency of Kane and Eriksen has continued to be strong, Dele has reached another level and Toby has settled back into the side well. In a team full of guys who are performing really well it would be hard to say Sissoko is POTY, but equally he would deserve to be in the conversation.
