Hope you all are safe and doing well!

Ed what do you think about Ndombele as a person and as a player and how he has been for Spurs?

{Ed001's Note - he has not lived up to expectations so far. He shows flashes but no more than that. I would put that down to a few things though. First he is not playing regularly. Secondly there is friction between him and Jose. He is not yet settled in England which won't help. Not that any of it matters while Jose is in charge. Jose always has a scapegoat and that is him. He is not going to be able to show what he can do while Jose is in charge.}

Doesn’t make for good reading? Any chance this ends well for all?

{Ed001's Note - I can only see it ending well for all if Jose moves. The lad is supremely talented but he is not being handled well. Other than that, the only thing I can see is him being sold.}

Is it a case of a player that is not physically compatible with the demands of the Premier League?

{Ed001's Note - he doesn't show any signs of that. It is more of a mental thing adaptation usually. Physically anyone young enough can work to build up physical strength and power to cope. The problem is that he gets no support, just snide comments off his manager, the man who should be backing him. You don't get the best out of players by publicly slagging them off. Jose should have learnt this by now. It has been the issue that brought him down everywhere he has gone.}

Jose is definitely an issue I’d agree there.

I think I’ve seen suggestions that there were questions about Ndombele’s mental application before when he was at Lyon . which if accurate adding a “man manager” like Jose to the mix was probably not going to go well.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, it was known he needed careful handling to get the most out of him. Which is why it is particularly odd that Jose has not been informed of this or that he has decided that this is careful handling. I really do not understand it. It has never worked for him in the past singling out one player to pick on, why does he continue to do so? Someone really will have to explain the thinking on this one to me.}
