Alright, I know you were all anxiously awaiting this, so here are the results for our Community Player ratings so far. For those of you wondering why I didn’t post these sooner, the answer is two-fold. First, I am very lazy. Second, the spreadsheet just looks kind of dumb with only one or two ratings in it.
So, four games into the season, we’ve had four different man of the match performance. A few of Tottenham Hotspur’s big names—Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, and Dele Alli—have been largely disappointing, but everyone turned things around against Stoke City.
On the whole, Kyle Walker, Danny Rose, and Toby Alderweireld have been the most consistently good performers, while Heung-Min Son has the highest match rating of the season thanks to his brace Against Stoke. On the opposite end of the spectrum, late game subs Josh Onomah, Harry Winks, and Tom Carroll all have sub-6.0 ratings and Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen are both just slightly above we’ll call the “Carroll Line.” I admit that’s not as catchy as the Mendoza Line, but cross-sport analogies are bad.
