‘Did you see that Sweet Guy!’… Madison’s ‘sweetness’ topic made even the ‘swearing away fan’ laugh, what’s going on?
The James Maddison “effect” is happening for Tottenham in the English Premier League (EPL).
Considered one of the best attacking midfielders in the EPL, Maddison joined Spurs this season after leaving Leicester City last season. Expectations were high that he would be able to revitalize Spurs’ offense.
The expectations were realized. Against Brentford in the first round, Maddison had a strong debut for Tottenham with two assists. Against Manchester United in the second leg, he was in fine form, helping Spurs to a 2-0 win, and against Bournemouth in the third leg, he scored his first goal for Spurs.
It’s not just about skill. Maddison has been named vice-captain to support captain Son Heung-min. He’s playing a big role in leading Tottenham to first place.
But Madison’s charms don’t end there. There’s something else. It”s sweetness. It doesn’t get much sweeter than that. His sweetness exploded against Bournemouth in the third round. His sweetness made even the away fans who were cursing him melt.
Many media outlets, including the UK’s Daily Mail, reported on the sweetness of the medicine. The local media described the situation as “Madison’s reaction to Bournemouth fans’ insults”.
Here’s what happened. Round 3 was away to Bournemouth. Bournemouth’s home stadium, the Vitality Stadium, was naturally home to a larger number of Bournemouth fans.
They were outplayed by Tottenham throughout the game, and when Spurs won, the Bournemouth fans were understandably upset. One of the first targets was Maddison, who scored Tottenham’s first goal. All sorts of profanity, taunts, and insults were hurled at Mason.
Then, Maddison came to take a corner kick. The Bournemouth fans had an idea to further provoke him, and they hit on his biggest ‘weakness’. The England national team.
Since 2019, Maddison has been frequently called up to the England squad, but has rarely played. England’s midfield is too strong, and Maddison wasn’t trusted by England coach Gareth Southgate. Maddison has just three caps for the England national team. 바카라사이트
As he settled down to take a corner kick, Bournemouth fans chanted “Southgate’s got the right man, you’re XX!”
After hearing the insult, Maddison fired back. He deliberately pushed the ball forward, which was well placed on the corner kick line. He then repositioned the ball and attempted to kick it. Knowing full well that it was a foul, he smirked as he looked at his abusers.
Then something amazing happened. The Bournemouth fans who were cursing Maddison were laughing too. Here he was, smiling and acting outrageous. It was impossible to hate. One Bournemouth fan even said, “What a wonderful young man he is.”
“He’s one of the most likeable players in the EPL,” said local media. His interaction with the home fans at the Bournemouth game showed why he is so likable. Not only is he one of the best players in the EPL, but he’s also a star who loves to have fun on the pitch. He’s even a favorite among opposing fans.”
