I like him but he's not a top 4 player.

Mind you, we aren't a top 4 club anymore but if we get back there it won't be because of players like Eric Dier. I like him in the same way that I liked Michael Dawson as a footballer. He's tough and doesn't shirk it but he's got too many deficiencies in his game to be reliable.

Dier is a decent player but not world class, however exactly the same as Sanchez he is not a left sided defender. I don't understand for the life of me why Pochettino keeps trying to shoe horn them in. At the minute I guess vertonghen is out so we have no other options. It's madness that this is the case though. We have Toby, Dier, Sanchez and Foyth who are all right sided centre backs.

On the plus side with Dier, at least he gives a shit.

I may be alone on this but I've actually thought Dier has been decent moved back in to defense.
Better that the tanker that he is cruising round midfield making the opposition look superb.

Agreed. I’m pretty sympathetic to him. Injuries and illness have obviously been terrible, but also IMO being moved around from one position to another. Kind of like Jones at man united. Some players just can’t deal with that.

Yeah, but was tipped to be brilliant, was pretty good early in his career, and then got trotted out at CB, RB, and as a defensive midfielder. Now he's utterly useless. Dier isn't that bad, but still.
