Nah!!! Not impressed with him now, hasn't fufilled the potential and hype that came with him. Was likened to Essien, nowhere near his calibre.
When he first came he was getting top billing, he showed a lot of promise, but that's as far as he's got IMO. Doesn't seem to be able to take the next step up. Shame because he works hard and has bags of energy, just seems to lack that finesse to set him apart from so many other players of his type.
You both seem to have hit the nail on the head nicely.
n_b_r says he is useful and versatile - agreed. He can play in various positions and always tries hard. Any team would like to have a few like that.
l_t_s also sums him up nicely IMO - overhyped and never lived up to jhs potential!
After the world cup I thought we were getting a world class midfielder. That never materialised did it? Instead we got an average battler.......Tanio, Ghally etc. Always usefull but not gonna set the league alight.
Im still waiting for Spurs to unearth or buy another Roy Keane, Viera, Pyrlo type maestro........Zokora aint it!
