A few people have been asking why he refused to celebrate his goal on Sunday, saying his body language wasn't good. Like every Spurs fan on earth, I hope to God he's not feeling as if he wants away, or that he's somehow not happy behind the scenes for whatever reason. If he's been 'tapped up' by someone, with the way the sports news media is these days...I'm sure we would have heard all about it.

So, what's his problem?

I was sat behind the bench on Sunday and a couple of times Poch got up to pass on instructions to Dele, I noticed that Dele kind of gesticulated his hands in a manner that looked like a bit of attitude, almost as if to say 'I don't know what you want'...

Not suggesting there is a problem and was most likely frustration, but a couple of us sat near each other noticed it.

Looked to me frustrated I'm sure if his initial shot had gone in he would've celebrated. Luckily it rebounded straight back to him to tap in.

It was a tap in after a lucky rebound to put us 1-0 up against Burnley with plenty of the game left to play. It's not like he just scored a screamer in the last minute of stoppage time to win the World Cup or something.

Chill. Its his new celebration and it takes more concentration than a fancy handshake.

I missed the game as I'm on holiday in the South of France smashing the F5 button in the ITK thread but from what I read he hasn't started the season as well as he'd hope so perhaps it's more about frustration with himself?

Sometimes I don't really understand what Dele's best position is. He looks good today as a box-to-box midfielder in a 5-3-2, alongside a holding player (winks) and a playmaker (Eriksen)

He's young enough that it could go either way. For me, player he resembles the most is Lampard. Obviously not physically. He's the physical opposite of Frank.

What I'm saying is, he's not fat. And by he, I don't mean Frank.
