Dele Alli's form is under scrutiny but has he really lost his edge? Dele Alli finds his form being questioned right now but there seems to be some confusion about what type of player he was in the first place.
Three years ago, you were supernatural. You was hard and nasty. This player is an untameable wild horse,Alli has had to scrap his way to the top too. No respecter of reputations, zero compromise, the boy from Milton Keynes had not been refined in a top academy but nor did he appear constrained by it. Here was a player with an edge to his game,
He had a desire to get in the box. He was always nasty, playing on the edge, getting sent off once or twice, but today he was non-existent. He's been like that for a year or two."
He is still only 23,That is well worth remembering. Alli needs to get back to basics. Start doing the things that made him such a potent player in the first place. Just knuckle down and the form will return and with it the praise. Praise that once earned him back-to-back PFA young player of the year awards.
so what is the truth about his predicament?
Is it as simple as a lack of desire - just another example of a young man who, like the fictional Balboa, has forgotten what helped take him to the top? Dele Ali needs to pick up his form from where he has dropped it,lol, and get back to the game and also to get his place back in england team.
