Eric Dier issues one-word reaction overnight following Aston Villa-Wolves controversy

Tottenham Hotspur defender Eric Dier has made his feelings clear on Twitter following penalty controversy during Aston Villa’s 1-1 draw at Wolves on Sunday.

Aston Villa felt they should have been awarded a second-half penalty when ex-Spurs man, Matt Doherty, pushed Ollie Watkins in the box as he tried to shoot.


Ollie Watkins’ attempt, in the end, was scuffed and struck the side netting, making it quite obvious that the returning Wolves right-back prevented him from getting a clean shot on goal.

The on-field referee and VAR concurred that there was no foul, although Eric Dier vehemently disputes this on Twitter.

Dermot Gallagher, an ex-referee, brought up that incident on Sky Sports over the weekend, to which Matt Doherty replied, “Never.”

As you can see in the image below, his old Tottenham teammate sent a straightforward one-word reply in response to that tweet.

Aston Villa’s penalty shout valid

Alan Shearer, the all-time leading scorer in the Premier League, may have been playing as a striker, but he believed Villa were unlucky and that a penalty should have been given.

In the end, Watkins was prevented from making a clear attempt on goal, and Doherty knew exactly what he was doing.

Given the outcome, it might have had a significant impact on the game, but this season, on-field refs and VAR have made far worse errors than the one from Molineux.


Pundit thinks one Spurs player made Harry Kane left personally after certain comments


After remarking on Tottenham’s prospects without Harry Kane, Darren Bent believes Son Heung-min would have been driven to prove a point this season.


When Tottenham’s all-time leading scorer left for Bayern Munich in the summer, several analysts understandably wondered where the Lilywhites would get their goals from this season and completely wrote them off from the race for European qualification.

In fact, pundits like Gabby Agbonlahor of Football Insider and Paul Merson of Sky Sports even predicted that Spurs would find it difficult to place in the top half of the standings this year.

Eight games into the season, though, Ange Postecoglou’s team leads the standings with 20 points after winning six and drawing two.

Heung-min Son took Harry Kane chatter personally

Bent thinks that Kane’s departure has benefited Son because the South Korean has been effective in front of goal, scoring six goals thus far.

The pundit had this to say about the Tottenham captain (07/10/23 at 12:15 PM): “He has been excellent. Kane leaving is nearly a gift.

He started out a little slowly, playing from the left. But ever since switching to center-forward and playing that opening match against Burnley, he hasn’t turned around. a really smart football player.

“When the objective is being approached by the turmoil. He constantly keeps a little distance. give yourself some room. We all know he is a really, really fantastic finisher once he finds that space in the box. His ability to score with both feet is one of his greatest assets. When he is fully in motion, nobody can catch him.

When Kane left, they switched him to center-forward, and he said, “Do you know what? I can score the goals,” he said, adding that he has been fantastic this season. It almost seems as though he took it personally, in my opinion.

“When everyone pondered, ‘How would they survive without Harry Kane? They’ll probably complete the bottom half. He argued that he could move the club ahead and is currently doing so.

When Kane has been injured in the past, Son has stepped up and produced. In light of this, he would undoubtedly have enjoyed the chance to assume leadership of the team after the departure of the England captain.
