He’s a real wing back just looks so much more comfortable at wing back. If Nuno didn’t he probably would be yes.

I honestly believe he’d make a better centre back than a right back in a 4 with his physicality and he’s less vunreable to pacy wingers as such.

Thought matt played decently yesterday, although Mourinho's tactics were pure poison Dead most of wolves attacks came down the right side

Has started the last 3 games for Spurs now since Aurier messed up against Leicester.

Sent off, based on what Jose usually does he might not be seen for a few weeks after that

Yeah, idiotic from him. Will have to wait for Auriers next mistake.

I haven’t seen it but having just won back his place from Aurier and having three players suspended/banned for Covid infractions, this looks like a massively stupid thing to do in a game that you are winning 3-0

I said "I'd be Tony Cascarino, circa 1995"

Why make such a challenge when 3-0 up and already on a yellow. Jose will not be happy with the stupidity.

Misses next game v Brentford (probably wouldn’t have started anyway) but I can see Aurier starting the next league game.

No he didnt. As one of his biggest fans previously, he looks very much like he needs to play at wing back rather than full back.

He looked a different animal last week at Wing Back. It was working fine I don’t know why Mourinho switched formation after 60 odd minutes against Wolves.

Reguilon isn’t much better defensively and also looked way more comfortable as a wing back against Wolves. 

With Doherty and Aurier it’s genuinely like Floyd and Harry in Dumb and Dumber at the moment it’s a case of when not if who messes up next.

Playing today against Marine after serving his one game suspension for the red card.

Based on prior form that would indicate Aurier is back in for the next game v Villa.

A 2nd string including Ben Davies, Doherty, Alderweireld, Sissoko, Alli, and Moura. And Gareth Bale about to come on.

Not exactly Leeds 2nd string we're talking about here.

No, the point I was making is that Doherty being picked in this team suggests he's back behind Aurier for now.

Is that Doherty's 1st assist for Spurs? He is definitely better suited as a wing back

No it’s not his first assist.

I think the point was made already but given that Spurs are still involved in 3 cups and will probably fancy their chances of a long run in the Europa League (with it's huge volume of games) it's no real major worry if Doherty doesn't play week in week out in the league if he's seen as the starting right back in the cup competitions.

He will still easily manage another 5 league starts at the very least on top of that I'd imagine.
