Just appears to be a couple of cans short of a sixpack.
Maybe that's just how he is.
I Always imagine him being like the monk in mean machine! I do like him thought he is our psycho and players with an intensity and aggression, despite the numerous late challenges, that I wish other players had.

The "hypocrite" comments are pretty funny because the people who clearly haven't followed lockdown instructions automatically assume that nobody has. Some of us actually have and simply expect the same level of decency and respect from everyone, even if they are multi-millionaire athletes.
Mate, I've totally been locked down and haven't seen a grown up for fuck knows how long. Shit, I started locking down before it was an official thing because my daughter is at risk but even after all that, I still couldn't care that Serge got a haircut, nor am I going to stress about it.

I think we have a few more positions in the team to worry about before Serge tbh. Great, we could upgrade, but let’s get the bloody midfield sorted first.

Wingers are a huge part of successful teams. I absolutely agree midfield is in much need of repair, mostly in the defensive side of mid but stay on topic. This is about Serge, he’s not good enough. We’re struggling to keep up the pace with Shef Utd, Wolves and a very ordinary Man U. New RB in the summer is a must.

Guys nearly cost us two goals last night he is a liability needs upgraded ASAP or the hard work the team will just go out the window with him giving away goals can’t afford that week in week out

One of two obvious positions we need real upgrade on after the music stops this summer.

Diers mistake cost us two points, Sanchez poor header in the first half also blotted his copybook - but Aurier will cough up 2or 3 such errors every game and only gets one cross in three or four into a decent area...

Aarons for me and Sissoko there in the meantime...

Only Trent and Robertson have more assists. We have bigger problems than Serge. A CB CDM and LB.

i have no problem with his creativity. The problem is defensively he is a liability - always has a mistake in him. Even the last min pen that VAR ruled out - he had ample opportunity to clear it. Instead he messes about, loses the ball and could have cost us the game.

ticking time bomb. My blood pressure goes up whenever he's within 50 feet of the ball. If i ever see him in a Spurs shirt again, it will be too soon.

To be a great footballer you need talent, athleticism, discipline and brains - 2 out of 4 is not good enough

Aurier is always an accident waiting to happen. Meunier would be a massive upgrade at RB and increase our aerial ability at both ends. I think Dier can potentially be an amazing CB and is the vocal leader that we don’t have anywhere else in the team. Sanchez needs to play every week as he is very error prone until he gets into a run of games. I would like to see a Dier / Sanchez partnership at CB until the end of the season as they could be a really good pairing for the next 7 or 8 years as they both mature and become more consistent.

If we got an acceptable offer, I'd sell him.

I want players here that Mourinho feels he can win with. If Serge, who I thought was going to be a difference maker to this team and I was wrong, doesn't fit what Mourinho wants as a right back then move him on, he is far too hit and miss.

Can't work out how you think LB is a bigger problem area than RB.
It isn't ... Davies is a more than adequate LB for the way Jose wants to play. Tanganga is a good back up for any position across the back 4 as he learns. Personally I do not see Sessegnon at LB - I think he is better as a WF competing with Son, Moura, Bergwijn.

For me a DCM is the most urgent position to be addressed, followed by RB and then CF (we need a mobile target man as an additional option to Kane).
