Christian Eriksen

Yay or Nay? Strange old one this, but Levy does have a knack for bringing back former players. Keane, Defoe, Bale to name a few. I’m not sure how I feel with this because part of me feels Eriksen made his bed and should lie in it, but on the other hand, Spurs didn’t particularly want to get rid of him and if he would of committed to us, we would of got him to sign a new contract.

We all know Eriksen in his prime was our main man in the creativity department. We thought we were potentially getting that with GLC, but he’s been very disappointing bar the odd few games. Eriksen is still only 28 and pace was never his strongest attribute, so this is something we wouldn’t have to worry about. He has been awful for Inter Milan though.

Lots of rumours circulating in the media and usually there’s no smoke without fire. Would you take him back with open arms?

Ask yourselves this: If Eriksen was in great form, would he come back to us or look to come back to us? Would Inter let him go?

No

Therefore, I believe he is struggling badly and this is an escape.
Ok, it may workout for him with us, but are you prepared to give him time and effort to get him back to his best?

This is the trouble with Spurs. We bring in so many players who need time to get going. We don't get players who look the finished article and can do a job right here and now often enough.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Absolutely spot on.

We got PEH, Berg and Reggi all come in and hit the ground running.

We bring in Eriksen, will he be the same?
He might!!

But at the mo, he is struggling at Inter in the Italian league, so think if he would make an impact in the PL again? OR will we have the resources to say, you know what we bring him over and give him time if he needs it? I don't think we can afford to do that.

If we get him on loan, what would be the purpose? Where will he fit in? Will he boost the time chances?
----------------------------------------------------------------------




MoreSpurs, Reggie and PEH I totally agree with you, but where do you get that Bergwijn is on fire and has hit the ground running ? He plays a lot because Lucas is so bloody average and Bale just can’t seem to settle, but I wouldn’t say Bergwijn has hit any ground running.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
mate, how can you forget Berg's swivel and goal, the first one that opened the door for a victory against City?
In his first goal, mate. Up and running. He has been hampered by a muscular injury but on Sat, I was literally blown away with his technical showing. Give him a break dude, he'll get us to the next level.

I did that peice the other day on Dele, after Marine.

https://www.ja606.co.uk/articles/viewArticle/430216

The consensus was he played very well and was subbed by a happy Jose. I questioned whether Jose would have appreciated the somewhat showboaty nature of Deles game that night.

He hasnt been seen in a squad since and it begs the question (1) was Jose unimpressed by Dele's flashness in that game or (2) does Dele think he's proved something in that game and failed to follow it up with performances in training ?

Any idiot would know that Jose will be impressed by effort & intensity and not flicks and tricks, no matter hw effective the latter are. HE will be looking for the former qualities in training so if Dele turns up thinking he's the bee's knees and is all style and not enough effort then I'd expect Jose to drop him.

Its a real shame. He was "rumoured" to be starting vs Fulham and never made the pitch even though i think a Dele for NDombele swap is a good one.

Not to make the squad vs Sheff Utd is a kick in the nuts, but may be one he deserves. We'll never know!

Next squad vs Stevenage, or St. Evenage as the locals call it, will be telling. Come on Dele. Force your way in, make it happen son, you have the gift to do this.

If we got the old Eriksen then yeah, he’d be great on the counter with Kane and Son but if it’s the current Eriksen then I’d rather play Sissoko

Totally confused by that last paragraph. We're not playing Stevenage so why are you talking about the squad against Stevenage? Is it some weird joke about Wycombe?

No way are we after Eriksen...

He just doesn’t fit the Jose profile...

His form nose dived about the same time as Dele Ali’s

Never forget that game against Olympiakos... when he was woeful...

Only us Spurs fans continually look backwards, drooling over past players. If he wanted to be here, he wouldn’t have left. It’s not like an 8 year gap like Bale. What is it, 18 months?
