Merry Christmas, everyone! IDK over the rest of you, but I'm still over this 6-2 win over Everton. It was a game that I expected to lose points. Tottenham continues to confuse me, in spite of all the evidence to the contrary, to be good.
For today's topic we return well for Christmas, and why not? It is (at the time of writing here in the Midwestern United States) Christmas Eve. So before you open your presents, explode crackers and crush your cakes, or whatever you British do for Christmas, let's take a look at the Spurs player ratings on Christmas Candy.
And since I may not have another opportunity to say it, Happy Holidays to each and every one of you and thank you for reading this ridiculous Tottenham Hotspur blog.
5 Stars: Rumballs
Every winter, our family makes a seasonal outing to the nearest town to visit the local German import store to buy two things: a wedge of that incredibly soft New York cheddar cheese and a huge bag of rum balls. Oh, sweetness of the gods! Chocolate covered, but when you bite into them, they cause an explosion of Ambrosia ̵
I mean, you Who does not like these things? Okay, people who do not like mint. But they also have other flavors. They also make great decorations and
Son Heung-Min: There's no question who's using the man-of-the-match performance. It's Sonny who not only takes his step with two goals and an assistant, but has also made himself one of the most likely Spurs attackers. And that's in a team that includes Harry Kane.
Harry Kane: Two well-hit targets – a poacher hit after Trippier's free kick from the post and another in the second half. Almost another, but his chipped ball at the beginning of the first half was wide. My Christmas present is watching Harry Kane play.
Dele Alli: Spurs never lost a match when Dele Alli scores, and he was again honored at Goodison Park before Jordan Pickford injured his thigh injury. I hope he is fine because Spurs are much better on the pitch.
Christian Eriksen : On a day that all DESK teams have achieved, I feel compelled to give them all five stars. Eriksen's pass was an extraordinary game and his goal at the start of the second half was exquisite.
4 stars: Mint M & Ms
You know which relatives are the good relatives, because they have a huge shell The M & Ms with red and spearmint leaves at the end of the table when you visit during the holidays come. I can not stay out of these – if I'm around, I'll eat those little bastards from the fist. You can also bake with them, but bags never really get into the oven in my house.
Erik Lamela: A nice pass to Son to create Sonnys second goal of the match. Expect to start Boxing Day against Bournemouth. He plays very well now and is only second fiddle because Son was amazing.
Toby Alderweireld : They can be picky and say he could have done more to prevent Sigurdsson's second half-time goal, but otherwise he had a solid defensive game.
Moussa Sissoko: Tottenham's tactical plan was essentially "LOL, what is a midfield", but Sissoko was strong with the ball and came in pretty well, especially in the Spurs second. 19659018] 3.5 stars: King Leo soft peppermint candy sticks
OK, so they're basically candy canes, right? And candy canes are great. These are however thicker, softer and without curls. They are also better than candy canes because they have a toothy bite that will not shake your teeth, and you can actually enjoy the peppermint flavor without your hands becoming sticky by sucking in super-thin candy canes.
Davinson Sanchez: In the first game, it looked a bit rusty after an injury. Did a great job after Dominic Calvert-Lewin crashed in Everton's counterattacks – one hit led to the recall, another to a yellow card for Calvert-Lewin.
Kieran Trippier : Had some trouble with Richarlison in the first half, but Richarlison is a handful. Pretty good in the future, and the free kick he broke off the post was a good stroke.
3 stars: All candies that are basically the same as non-Christmas candies, only in "Holiday Forms" and Colors
You see, there are a lot of great sweets out there. I love Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, but I do not need them in the form of f-kin bells or whatever. Christmas is a time for sweets that actually taste like Christmas, do not sell all year long what you sell, and spend it as a "holiday." I look at you, reindeer seed .
Hugo Lloris: I could not really change any of Everton's goals and had little else to do.
Ben Davies : Fought in the first half with Theo Walcott, but we somehow expect him, right? Improved in the second half.
2.5 star rating: Gumdrops
Gumdrops MUST be good, but they are not, especially the "spice drops" that have strange flavors that do not match the colors. Seriously, who uses "clove" as a gummy candy flavor and why is it friggin-orange? It is not right.
Harry Winks: In midfield he was under very little pressure and was therefore very good with his pass, but most of them were sideways and backwards with very small progressive balls. And still managed to get lost in defense often. I hate to say it, but I would rather see Oliver Skipp at this point.
2 stars: These random candies you find at Christmas in the food of your grandmother with the weird colors
These are the candies you buy if you can not afford to buy real Christmas candies. Overly sweet and incredibly hard, they taste like absolutely nothing and lead to disappointment and tooth decay. Keep them near any heat source for a long time, and they will stick together, forming a single mass with the hardness of the diamond. Avoid.
No Spurs players in this category.
1 Star: Christmas Tree Nougat Sweets
You know what they are – it's those incredibly sticky sweets with the green tree in the middle that they undoubtedly bought at Publix for about $ 2.99 and that tastes of filler with a hint of mint. No, they will NEVER completely get out of your teeth and risk pulling out your fillings. They are like poker chips for seasonal depression.
No Tottenham Hotspur players were as bad as Christmas tree nougat candies.
