The way i see it Rose had a puple patch a few years ago, when we was playing with a high and fast press, and absolutly monstering teams, rival managers were often saying we were bullying them, and that obv suited his blood and thunder game, but now he has to kick the ball. I would like to see the stat that shows how often he gives the ball away.
1.9 unsuccessful touches and 0.6 dispossesions per 90 in the PL. 74% pass accuracy.

The stats I posted earlier are for all Spurs games this season in EPL and UCL and are more accurate.

@Archibald&Crooks

The Liverpool full backs at the top of the Assists got 5 between them in the Watford 5-0 recently (TAA - 3, Robertson 2). Key Passes along with assists are actually a better measure of creativity.

Robertson has also played 3127 mins of football across both competitions (4th Highest mins in League, 3rd highest in Champions League for Liverpool). TAA has 2280 minutes.

The likes of Trippier and Davies who are our most used full backs have 2114 and 1905 minutes played each.

Robertson has played about 11 more games than Tripps and 13 more than Davies in both competitions.

Liverpool also haven't been missing some of their better attackers for a lot of the season tbf.

Thanks Paolo, Should make interesting reading for those who think he is a good player.
He's not exactly what I would call a bad player, but yes, he gives the ball away even more than Aurier.

I do think he gets less grief than any other full back we have tbh.

Danny has got to start proving his fitness IMO. The step over against Southampton was indicative to a FB playing a few minutes at CM then having a brain fart and forgetting his position on the pitch. If he cant get into a rhythm of playing every week until the end of the season I think we're gonna need another LB to come in the summer.

The fat lad is Wayne Evans, the Go Compare guy and Spurs fan. He sang at the finale as well.

And I thought Rose played well tonight, but should've scored.

I thought he had a good game too. Think he was gassed midway through the second half. Seen it a few times since he came back from injury re fatigue.

he was a one man wrecking crew on the left. I thought he was great. yeah, if he had a little better control he'd be amazing but he probably wouldnt be playing for us.

It's amazing how we can take different things from the game. Defensively i thought he did well with limited amount he had to do but going forward I thought he was poor. Gave the ball away 32 times supposedly, didn't realise it was that many. Just like against pool he had some very good crossing chances but fluffed them. Shame to see as he used to be a brilliant player.
