    Showed some naïveté today. He was man marking Kane for the goal that won Spurs the match, letting him get away. Clearly was tracking the flight of the ball rather than his man, and Perisic flicked the ball in a different trajectory, leaving Kane a free header.

    Also was nutmegged by Richarlison in the final 10 minutes on a counterattack. Ultimately that play didn’t cost his team and it wasn’t an easy situation but not a great look and on a different day might have led to another goal.

    That said, a lot of good small moments in possession but some growing pains overall today. Needs to work on concentration and maybe some dark arts and the pragmatic aspects of being a central defender at the top level.

    Kane did him big style there ~ Nathan completely lost his bearings ~ All part of the learning curve for a young player I suppose ~ I hope Wolves get a few results to take the pressure off.

    Two very good players ~ If Son was English the British Media would be having multiple orgasms every time he plays. Spurs are lucky to have Son ~ What a player. I am actually surprised that one of the Bigger / Biggest clubs have not come in for Son and offered Spurs a Big Price for him.

    Me too. I actually think if he was also Spanish or Brazilian... real Madrid and Munich etc would be fighting over him.
    Joint top scorer with Salah last season and know one cares!!

    They'd probably be salivating over Collins too by now if he was English. I wouldn't be surprised if they'd have taken him to Qatar if he'd been theirs.

    This is true. I watched almost the full game and he was outstanding. Kane did him alright but the beauty is you know he’ll learn from it. He’s such a smart player.

    He frustrated Kane and Son for 95% of the game. There was one passage in particular where Son got in behind the Wolves back line and was, basically, just keeper to beat. Collins had about 5 yards to make up - which he did - getting a block on Son’s shot at the last second. Stunning recovery against a player that fast and clinical.

    Just spotted Stephen Kenny and Keith Andrews in the stand during todays game between Wolves and Newcastle. Obviously taking in Collins - - anyone else? Any potentially eligibles we’re not aware of…?

    Don't believe so but hopefully they have chatted with Ronan once in Wolverhampton.

    Just got sent off against Man City for murdering Jack Grealish and I'm quite okay with that.

    Very poor challenge. Hopefully he will continue to learn from it. He has been playing great but still prone to the hairy moment in most games this season

    If Ronan can’t get on now with Wolves with nothing to play for, he will need to give up the ghost of trying to make it at wolves. The cord will be cut in January definitively hopefully

    But we're salivating over him. If he wasn't Irish, our interest would be superficial.

    I love Collins and his attitude I think he never went to the ball he just stomp on that turncoat and idiotic type ( remember ex Lanús Almirón when the paraguayan was mocked by big Jacko) , Collins he is done what it was meant to be , it cant be that everyone despises Jacko, anyway I think Maddison is soon avail for Ireland, under the new rules, so that could be good news for the republic, on Wolves, yes Ronan has to play, but I would have given him a chance in this games, as for Collins, I would try him in the middle of the park from now on, a la Mark Lawrenson next to the small fellow from Anderlecht

    I see that Nathan’s Manager has been sacked ~ ~ It will be interesting to see if that has any affect on Nathan.

    Lage started Neves at CB in Collins absence while two other CBs sat on the bench so don't think he's anything to worry about with losing his place. Unless any new manager is given funds and decides to strengthen at CB to add competition for Collins and Kilman.

    Not sure what a "typical Irish centre back is" but this is good

    The guy that runs that page tends to overhype Irish players a bit. Actually, Collins' defensive stats don't look that great there.

    Typical Irish centre back presumably means a Shane Duffy, Richard Dunne type.
