Serge Aurier released his inner Kieran Trippier for Dele’s goal. Hoping it can be a big season for him. #COYS— Harry Hotspur (@HarryHotspurWHL) August 12, 2018
Looking at Serge Aurier's defensive performance yesterday, I'm delighted we didn't sign anyone this summer #COYS— Come on You Spurs (@spursfan365) August 12, 2018
Our defence was all over the place yesterday. If I was Poch, I would be going to a back 3 and wing backs for the Fulham game. Get Toby starting and get Trippier in at wing-back instead of Aurier. #COYS— Wacko Mercenary (@strevens84) August 12, 2018
Seriously concerned about Aurier. Defensively he is a major liability. Would prefer KWP to deputise Tripper to be honest. Or at least bring in Toby in a 3-man defence. But Poch does not trust Toby anymore? Big issues that need to be resolved. #COYS #THFC— ⓀⒺⓋⒾⓃ (@KevinMMathews11) August 12, 2018
Thought him and Aurier were both poor overall. Aurier had the nice cross for Dele' goal but other than that, not a great performance from either.— COYSDonohue (@COYSDonohue) August 11, 2018
