Dembele was star midfielder who had turned 31 and become semi-crocked, managing a grand total of 680 minutes for Spurs - in all competitions this season - before leaving for China. That made his star-shining cast somewhat less overall light don't you think? But you try and paint a different picture. Nor was Skipp his replacement, as you claim. It has been Harry Winks who has benefited from far more game time this season. As for the rest of your bollocks, the stadium is going to be sold out, with a cracking atmosphere, regardless of your dire warnings.
