The Tottenham Hotspur faithful have taken to social media in their numbers on Thursday, to reveal their concerns with the situation of defender Joe Rodon.
Antonio Conte’s men are of course currently locked in action.
In the club’s latest Premier League outing, Spurs have welcomed capital rivals Brentford to north London, for a first-ever top-flight showdown between the two clubs.
53 – Tonight sees the first ever top-flight meeting between Tottenham Hotspur and Brentford. It will be the 53rd different London derby match to be played in England’s top tier. Capital.

The hosts, of course, headed into proceedings much the fresher of the sides, after seeing their scheduled meeting with Burnley last weekend postponed owing to hazardous weather conditions.
This means that Tottenham face Brentford in search of a bounce-back result, having slipped to an alarming 2-1 defeat at the hands of NS Mura in the Europa Conference League this day last week.
Where is Rodon?
As alluded to above, though, ahead of the action getting underway on Thursday evening, it was not the clash itself which piqued the attention of many a Tottenham fan across social media.
Instead, this came in the form of an altogether surprising omission from the Lilywhites’ matchday squad.
Despite having been spotted alongside the rest of Antonio Conte’s troops in north London, and Cristian Romero being sidelined long-term, defender Joe Rodon has not even been afforded a spot on the Spurs bench to face Brentford:

In turn, the reaction amongst the club’s fanbase has since been one of concern and disbelief, with just some of the social media highlights showcased below:
Really don’t understand wtf he’s done
— Jack🏴 (@RodonTHFC) December 2, 2021
Not been picked by 4 managers in a row now – something must be up behind the scenes and in training
— Ian THFC (@ian_butler3000) December 2, 2021
Never gets a fair chance and run of games to shae what he can do, but if 4 managers now have barely used him then the writings in the wall

What’s the issue with Rodon?
Some of our other defenders give nightmare performances (Sanchez against Mura) yet keep their place in the starting XI.

He’s been brilliant for Wales and has been pretty solid in the games he’s played for us. Something must be up when it’s now the 4th Spurs manager leaving him out.
