Guglielmo Vicario, the goalkeeper, didn’t do much to impress Richard Keys during Tottenham Hotspur’s 2-1 loss to Aston Villa on Sunday.
Despite controlling the first half, Ange Postecoglou’s team lost in stoppage time and entered halftime equal and dejected.
However, according to what beIN SPORTS host Richard Keys wrote on his own blog, he believes Guglielmo Vicario assisted them along the road by “bouncing around his area” and assisting Aston Villa in getting on the “front foot.”
Furthermore, he believes that Tottenham’s current style of play is “naive” and “reckless,” and if they keep on this direction, they won’t be “joining the big boys.”
Spurs supporters, despite the fact that they are playing with nine men, have witnessed their team play in this aggressive style under Ange Postecoglou, showing no mercy to the opposition or shift in strategy.
The number of guys they are pressing forward has resulted in them consistently letting up on excellent opportunities.
Richard Keys and Guglielmo Vicario’s efforts against Villa as a summer signing served as highlights of it.
Guglielmo Vicario against Villa
Keys stated, “It couldn’t have been an easy day at Spurs, but they shouldn’t have lost to Villa.” Having saying that, Villa were excellent. You won’t find a better finale than Ollie Watkins’. Amazing.
However, Spurs once again shown such naivete. During first-half stoppage time, what was the goalie doing bouncing around in his area to attempt and get them on the front foot? Man, chill out. Retain the sphere. Strike a one-up pose. Play the game with management. Perform every action that you did not perform against Chelsea.
But no, no, no. They repeated the action. They behaved carelessly. You won’t be joining the big boys until you’re more professional, Ange, even if I know “it’s what we are mate.” I will concede that while watching the Spurs play is fun, it won’t lead to success.
“I find it hard to believe that they were short yesterday. The second half is different if they manage to go one-up.
Guglielmo Vicario – form keeper in the Premier League?
This summer, Tottenham was obviously in need of a new goalie as Hugo Lloris’ tenure was coming to an end.
Vicario cost Spurs £17 million (Sky Sports), and thus far, it has shown out to be a wise decision.
One may argue that he has been the Premier League’s best goalie this year and that the team’s impressive start is mostly due to him.
Yes, the London team has made mistakes in their last few games, and their upcoming matchup against Man City won’t be much easier, but the supporters would have welcomed this at the beginning of the season.
