    To be fair I don’t think anyone either on here or at Spurs questions that Toby is still a bacon sandwich. But it’s about managing the games he plays as he’s getting older now and can’t play every game so unfortunately it seems we are always going to have to rotate him out at some point....

    Quite a few had actually anointed Dier as a bacon sandwich after only a handful of games last season but I think everyone except Scara has acknowledged that Dier hasn’t made the position his own and isn’t cut out to be a CB. Toby for me is still a bacon sandwich even if he’s not what he was 2-3 years ago. That also says a lot about how bad our CB’s are.

    Toby should start every game when fit and available. Head and shoulders above every other defender we have. Him and Rodon until the summer please.

    Chosing which two of our centre halves is like rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic.

    Whichever CB isn't playing is suddenly the solution to our problems. Each CB we have has major faults.

    None of our options are great, we have to make do with what we have till the summer but some options are less bad than others. For example, Sanchez and Dier is the absolute worst combination for me. Should be Toby + 1 other until the end of the season.

    Rodon should play every game until the end of the season ( injurys aside), We will get a better chance to see how he turns out and if he does ( and the signs are good) then we have to bring in one more this summer.

    Seems to have gone under the radar here a little bit this topic but having been caught out straight up lying about two of our players he didn't like having it pointed out



    Seems it's ok for him to wrongly imply publicly that the players were unprofessional but any clarification on the issue is to be done behind closed doors.
