Might have hurt at the time, but he was unbelievable in the 6-1 thrashing we got at their place last season. Scored a hat trick and I had to listen to their fans raving about on the radio on the coach back home. I thought they were getting carried away with some of their valuations(£5m-£10m), but fair play, he has been a spectacular buy by Spurs. I didn't even think he'd make their team, let alone be bossing games and scoring blinders every week. Got a big future, just hope he doesn't get ruined by having a team come in and pay £50m for him in 6/12/18 months time for him.
Alli is a superb talent, you'd have to be a fool to disregard it. I love that he's gone straight from this league into a (potentially) title challenging side in the Prem with such ease. It's also a massive boost to all clubs at this level - we can all now say to top sides 'look at what Alli has achieved so far', which means they might be more willing to spend 3/4/5 million quid on a League One player in the knowledge that it IS possible to step up.
His leaving us is obviously one huge reason why our team is so much weaker than last year. Sadly you can't hang on to players like that and, 90% of the time, you can't replace them. Still, we got 5 million which seeing how well he has done seems cheap.
I am glad he went to Spurs and got the chance in the first team as I expect if he had gone to one of the big four he would have ended up in reserves or back out on loan.
If he goes on and becomes a big international star we are going to regret no sell on clause!
