I’ve posted a reply with media reports of their attitude problems.

I’ve been a member on here circa 20 years and in that time I a long with many others have been around when the attitude of various players, good or bad have been discussed. These were the players that came to mind.

Whereas my posts in other threads highlight how my favourite/most highly rated current players are Van de Ven, Udogie, Porro and Sarr. My favourite Spurs player of all time is probably Ledley King, followed by big Erik Thorstvedt.
And that's what makes it icky, especially since the "issues" with all these players have been very different.

You gotta understand why some people react?

Why don't you just own that it wasn't the best looking comparison, and clarify that you meant no harm? Because I'm sure you didn't.

BAE basically said he sees football as a job which he doesn’t particularly love but he’s been professional in his time with us and gave his all on the pitch whenever he’s played, how’s that equate to having attitude problem similar to ndombele?

I haven’t heard anything about Biss having an attitude problem. It seems like after a good start to the season, he was suspended for a few matches, we had an injury crisis, and then he was away at the African Nations where he contracted malaria. Then he struggled to regain his earlier form.

Maybe we will want to upgrade at some point, but I think like a lot of players he’s probably been affected by a fairly disrupted first season under a new manager.

He also wasn’t used that much last season, so maybe there are some questions about his match fitness, especially when switching to a fairly unforgiving new system under Ange.

Ange said that Bissouma was late to training one time, that's about it. From social media videos he seems like a great guy in dressing room plus Ange wanted him to be a leader of training group.

Today was very telling he was dropped. Does look like ange feels he doesn't give enough protection to the back 4

I don't know why people give a laugh rating for this. PEH is more progressive in his passing compared to Bissouma. He also makes more progressive runs and more passes in the final third.
Hojbjerg is fucking tragic. If progressive passing is kicking it away to the other team then maybe.

I remember Biss playing against us for Brighton the season before we signed him. He was all over the pitch snd totally dominated the game. Where the hell is that version of him?

I think he'll be one of the first teamers we sell this summer.

Never been convinced his attitude has been right.

When Agne talks about having to let go of some good footballers, who might not have the mind set he's after, I feel Bissouma falls into this category.

Never felt he leaves it all on the pitch, so to speak.

Look, I don't think Hojbjerg is the answer but the stastistic shows that Hojbjerg is more progressive than Bissouma. I think we should get rid of both Hobjerg and Bissouma. Because Bissouma has not been much better apart from a short spell in the beginning of the season. Since then Bissouma has been terrible. He's slow on the ball and his passing goes sideways or backwards.

Shame really, i think he has the ability and potential to be a quality footballer but it just isn't gonna happen here. I fully expect him to be moved in the Summer along with Pierre and Gio

We don't need to sell Bissouma this summer. What they should do is sign another quality DM that fits Ange's system.

He's certainly not a bad player and based on his performances at the beginning of the season, he can still be a important part of team if he puts in the work to improve.

I get the sense that Bissouma bought into his own hype from all the praise he was being lavished with and when you add-in that he really hasn't had any real competition for his position, he's become complacent, which I do not excuse but can understand.

I would swap BAE for ND any day of the week I think he would love playing for Ange

BAE was quirky, i don’t think any of us ever felt he was disrespectful or unprofessional in fact i think we all respected him for who he was, the other players seemed to love him have you heard about crouch talk about him?
ND is as you say a massive piss taker

Put my hands up. Thought Conte had dropped a bollock with his opinion of him. Chuckled to myself about it earlier this season. He was spot on.

He was wrong about Sarr though.

it’s hard to say, he started off amazing Bis was unbelievable. He lost his rhythm. I thought he looked good coming on against arsenal.

a lot of players have lost there mojo it’s been a funny season

I'm pretty sure it was Bissouma he yelled at to stop passing backwards. He told Sarr and someone else to push up and press.
I hope this is true. It’s done my head in this last two months. Early season he was sublime, he beat the press with his awareness and a dummy, and he was away, and we were on the counter.

I believe he was our most important player, because of him beating the press. we had space, and our attacking movement and numbers involved in attack, was impossible to deal with.

Shit I miss it.
