‘I have never been a fan’: Craig Burley slams Tottenham midfielder who ‘passes it sideways’

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has drawn criticism from Craig Burley for not seeming to fit Ange Postecoglou’s style of play at Tottenham.

According to the former Chelsea player, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg only “passes it sideways” and has yet to start a Premier League game this season.

A new appearanceEven though they are still trailing 1-0 after 97 minutes, Tottenham this season has a reenergized midfield that is tearing teams apart.After the victory against Sheffield United, Paul Merson admitted something regarding Spurs.

A midfield that lacked flair and bite in the past has been improved by James Maddison’s swagger and attacking strength.

Then, two players who had been having trouble, Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr, are revitalized and performing as promised when they were first acquired.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, who started the EFL Cup loss to Fulham, is left to watch from the sidelines as a result.

Hojbjerg not good enough for Tottenham

Burley admitted, “I’ve never been a big Hojbjerg fan. “I just can’t. He seems to be moving about a lot. He passes it backwards before playing with Skipp.

“I think the personnel change, especially in midfield with Maddison added, is just a huge difference,” said the player.

Does Hojbjerg have a future at Tottenham?

There was speculation that the Denmark star may go for the exit door in the summer, but despite the chatter, he stuck put. things has been asserted that his presence in the changing room, along with two other players, makes things a little “awkward.”

Hojbjerg will sit on the sidelines for the foreseeable future, barring an injury.

It wouldn’t be shocking if the transfer window opened up again in January and he left, since Postecoglou might then be able to sign a dynamic midfielder who is more athletic to fit the kind of game he like.


’This one? Wow’: Ian Wright stunned by what he’s been told about Tottenham player

Dejan Kulusevski’s goal in Tottenham’s 2-1 victory over Sheffield United was the Premier League’s newest-ever winner, which shocked Ian Wright.

The former Arsenal player praised the Tottenham supporters for their celebration of their team’s victory while taking aim at the “celebration police,” who have in the past interfered with players and fans appreciating such occasions (18/09/23 @ 2:10 pm).

It’s absurd enough to score the game-winning goal with 100 minutes remaining, but to trail 1-0 with 7 minutes remaining and still win the match is absurder still. Paul Merson admitted as much about Spurs after the game, even if it “hurts me to say it.”

Dejan Kulusevski was the one who garnered praise for his cool-headed finish over the weekend, but Richarlison deserves praise as well.

The Brazil star came off the bench against the Blades and contributed to both goals after this week’s public disclosure of his mental health difficulties.

When notified about the Spurs’ historic goal, Wright responded as follows, which may turn out to be a turning point for the player.

The late, late show from Tottenham

Which one? The newest thing ever, right? Wow,” Wright remarked. “Observe the crowd. I was happy to observe the jubilant celebrations and enthusiastic applause of the Spurs there.

“You score a late goal, that’s what it’s all about. We (Arsenal) have already scored one of those this season (against Manchester United).

“Toward the end of the game, you snatch it. Fans ought to be having fun. Oh, the celebration police have arrived, people exclaim. Why are they rejoicing when there are only five games left? they ask. It’s incredible.

The mood has changed at Tottenham

Even though Ange Postecoglou has only been in charge for a few months, the former Celtic manager has already changed the atmosphere at the team.

Spurs fans have not experienced such a strong sense of loyalty to their team since Mauricio Pochettino’s reign.

Even though it’s still early, the atmosphere is as upbeat as it has been for Spurs going into this week’s game against Arsenal.
