good morning!

I know we had this a few days ago, but I think it’s worth revisiting. Besides, people can trend up or down quickly. And Sunday’s win lifted fitzie from his shohei sorrows. Let’s get to it!

Trending Up:

Daddy Davies:

I mean, c’mon. This man was immense yesterday. He had that first block to deny Newcastle from scoring early on in the game, but he really was everywhere. Davies doesn’t often get the appreciation that he should, which is a shame. Let’s hope Sunday’s performance changes that.

Davies is king.


A brace! A brace! Richy scored a brace! And celebrated with the pigeon dance. This has got to be one of the best performances from Richy since joining Spurs, and it’s been a long time coming. Both goals were with his feet too. Wonderful stuff.

Pedro Porro:

Man, this guy absolutely killed it. He’s been pretty solid this year, but yesterday’s performance just shows how important he is to this squad.

Trending Down:

Former Tottenham Hotspur players named Kevin Trippier:

Pour one out for Tripps. He got absolutely schooled by Sonny on the first two goals. I believe this is what is colloquially known as a ‘hiding’.

Better luck next time, Tripps.
