Have I missed something here, I've never heard anyone call him "the GOAT - greatest of all time", is that a thing or just lazy journalism?

Don't get me wrong, he's a good player but as a club that has had Greaves, Hoddle, Blanchflower etc etc etc, it seems a little bit over egging it.

If Dembele could add goals to his game I don't think he'd be a Spurs player he'd be a starter in one of the top clubs in world football.

There's parts of Dembele's game that is world class however he does have many defaults

I've seen it here and there but never really thought it caught on as it's a bit of a shit nickname really, considering what it's referring to.

with such a good left foot, the easiest way to score more is to take the odd shot occasionally ;)

I've missed it too. It's a thing in north American sport but my guess would be simply a headline-grabber here.
