When will the 26-year-old Tottenham Hotspur striker revive his career, we are running out of patience with him.
“Ally McCoist was once again annoyed with Tottenham despite the win over Fulham, as he was left frustrated by the Frenchman,” the Express reported on Friday토스카지노 도메인.
The Frenchman left Everton for Tottenham last summer. Much was expected of him after his time at Everton, where he scored 10 league goals, thanks to his work-rate, versatility to play on the flanks and in the center, and consistent goalscoring ability.
But at Tottenham, it’s a different story. He struggled mightily last season, scoring just one Premier League goal. His form at Everton and with the Brazilian national team was nowhere to be seen.

This season hasn’t been much different. He has just one goal in 12 league games. He confessed to having problems with those around him, saying, “The people who only wanted my money are gone. Things will start to go well. I’m determined to do well at Tottenham and get back on my feet,” but he hasn’t quite gotten there yet.
The biggest problem is a lack of decisiveness. When he came in for Harry Kane, who left for Bayern Munich at the start of the season, he was a flop. He was supposed to be the focal point of the offense, but he was far from a sharp finisher. Eventually, he lost his place up front to Son Heung-min, who now plays on the left flank.

There was a turning point. He looked to have turned the corner when he scored a league-leading goal with his head against Sheffield United last time out, but since then he has been silent and frustrated. It’s impressive to see him pressing hard and creating chances for his teammates, but that last shot is still so disappointing.
The only consolation is that he is at least registering an assist. With three assists in the league, the Frenchman is doing his bit. Against Fulham, he assisted the opening goal with a simple pass to Son Heung-min in front of goal. Of course, Son’s sharp cutback was impressive, but he also took his share of the credit by connecting the ball without being greedy.
Still, McCoist was bitter. “I think he’s a very disappointing player, really,” the former Rangers striker told Talk Sport while watching the game. He really is.”
“Of course, nobody doubts that he’s a tremendous talent,” McCoist continued. But I don’t think we’ve seen enough of that talent.”
The Express added: “He hasn’t shaken off the disappointment of last season. He has yet to convince Postecoglou that he is worthy of a place in the squad” and “McCoist is unlikely to be the only one to question his form”.
Indeed, transfer market expert Dean Jones also told ESPN that the player’s position is in jeopardy. “There are one or two things Tottenham would like to get rid of from their squad. “There are one or two things they want to get rid of from the team, especially with regard to Hyssop,” he said, adding, “Postecoglou is not sure about Hyssop. They have Brennan Johnson and Son Heung-min can play as a striker. It’s clear that he’s not ready for the PL.”
The Tottenham faithful have long since turned. On July 7, the Frenchman shocked fans when he missed two chances to open the scoring against Luton. At the time, England’s Daily Star wrote: “He had two chances, both of which he shockingly missed. Postecoglou’s reaction was one of disbelief.”
Tottenham fans were equally disbelieving. One fan took to social media to rage: “Shocker,” while others were equally vocal: “What’s wrong with him?”, “Absolutely embarrassing”, “Fucking hell, not again”, and “He needs to go”.
Football pundit Dean Ashton added: “A shocking miss. It’s as simple as that. It doesn’t get much easier than that,” and questioned how he failed to score. “Dejan Kulicepski’s cross was incredible and almost unstoppable. He simply had to put his foot on it. I don’t know why he made such a mess of it,” he added.
Tottenham, meanwhile, are unbeaten in nine games (seven wins and two draws) despite the absence of Heung-min. After nine rounds, they are in sole possession of the top spot, ahead of Manchester City, Liverpool, and Arsenal.
One of the top contributors is captain Son Heung-min. Not only does he lead the team on and off the field as captain, but he’s also been on a scoring tear, scoring seven goals in his last six games. He started with a hat-trick against Burnley last month, followed by a multi-goal performance against Arsenal, a goal against Liverpool, and a winner against Fulham.
He was especially hot in September. Son scored six goals in four games last month to earn the Premier League’s September Player of the Month award. It’s the fourth time he’s won the award in his career, and the first time in nearly three years since October 2020. Son joins Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Paul Scholes, Alan Shearer and Frank Lampard as four-time winners of the Player of the Month award.
As September came to a close, Son’s form continued. He scored his seventh league goal of the season with a spectacular right-footed curler against Fulham, reigniting the race for the top scorer’s award. With 110 goals in the PL, he is now tied for second on the list with Salah (Liverpool). He is two goals behind leader Elling Holland (Man City), who has nine.
He was also named to the PL Team of the Week. Son was named alongside teammate James Maddison in Alan Shearer’s Best 11 of the PL Round 9. This is his third Team of the Week honor of the season. Shearer said: “Son is relishing the role of captain. He added a great goal to his goal collection. He’s up to seven goals already.”
