You don't get trophies for surviving in the Premier League or getting kicked out of Europe early. He is choosing to not leave his mark in the trophy cabinet and I think that is a shame.

Tom was pivotal to that win. He created the first goal and was only a couple of touches away from the second. He was shouting and organising throughout and he commanded players to leave what otherwise looked like dangerous balls because he could see they were going clear. #UTC

I only saw the second half, but that was an excellent performance compared to previous games. We threw so many more bodies forward when in attack and looked dangerous all the time. A clean sheet too. I feel Tarks has been carrying an injury affecting his performances from the very start of the season.
