Donít know about anyone else but Imthought Dier was very poor last night. In fact except for the year when Leicester won the Premiership (when he excelled) he has been little more than average. If we replaced Wanyama in the squad instead of Dier that would make no sense at all. However,he can cover centre back and with the possible departure of Toby,perhaps that is Pochs plan and why Levy is really dropping his interest in De Ligt.

His performances are a worry for me , I thought he was dreadful during the world cup.
At the moment I don't know what dier brings other than sideways,backwards and a very occasional forward pass.
The is no aggression in his game unlike two years ago.

He is in danger of becoming Tom cleverly if he does not up it

Thought he did well in his cameo against Belgium. Was much more attacking, played some nice passes and nearly scored but for Toby. Agree with you for rest of his appearances in the tournament, was cr@p against Belgium first time out.

This feels like a make or break season for Dier.

Your right , It is a make or break season not just with us but for his career.
I don't think a top 6 club would touch him at the moment , his constant sideways and backwards passing is painful

For me he looks short as a midfielder at international level. Poch believes he could be England's best CB but he see's himself as a midfielder so he might have to analysis where he will achieve the most long term and be realistic at the moment none of the positions are getting the best from him.

I feel if he'd had a run of games instead of Henderson he might have shone better. In the Euros he was widely considered England's most consistent player so I don't think it's a case of being short at international level.

He genuinely looked more of a threat in his cameo towards the end of the Belgium game than Henderson had all tournament for me. Prior to that I was worried but he showed he still has it in his locker, and one game with the reserves and a couple of cameos from the bench when the team is struggling aren't really fair to judge his international pedigree.

But yeah I agree, it's make or break for his career at the highest level this season. He needs to make a position his own, whether that's CB in a three or as a DM. I think moving back and forth has hindered his development and he's failed to push on from the incredibly promising player we first signed.

Could be tired. Played a lot in the past couple of seasons.

Poch seems to like him though and he might just add a bit of stability to hold things together. But like others in here, I struggle to see what he offers at times.

Versatility is his biggest plus as he allows us tu switch formations without personnel changes during the games. And that is something that Poch mentioned few times in the interviews and therefore I think Poch will allways find him useful member of the squad.

As for Dier, I have a feeling he's a passenger too often in the games. Last season he was quality in maybe 5 games, he was dreadful in another few, and other than that, he was no more, no less than ok. He's a craftsman and has little value added for the team in his game. I have to admit he's defensively solid, though.

He seems to be going through it at the moment, when fully fit does he get in ahead of Winks and Sissoko? I think the answer is no at the moment, the same goes for Wanyama. Maybe he can replace Toby at centre back if he goes?

We are missing his spoiling play against our opponents.

Wish the lad back soon as he is class.
