    A year left but if he does not get sold by the end of the summer transfer window ir sign a new contract, he can do a Ramsey.

    Was the reason we sold Dembele.

    Correct but it's also relative.

    I have many gripes about the club but chief among them is knowing our model has to be different from nearly a the other top 6 clubs but still failing to bring in players with potential.

    A gamble yes, but we can't compete at the top end of the market and won't punt at the lower end.

    Result - 400 days plus of nothing.

    Slightly different with Demble, we had a good offer on the table for a player who openly admitted he was struggling and was less likely to be in our plans going forward. He didn't force anything and gave 100% on the pitch. The club and the player did what they felt was best for both parties.

    I disagree, I think what you are seeing is a dysfunctional team and a fatigued player(s). If Eriksen didn't want to get on the ball he'd hide from it, and point for others to receive it, like Sissoko does, but he doesn't, he's never been one to hang on to the ball, he's not a dribbler. Of the regular players ahead of the defence (who by default see a lot of the ball) only Winks (55 ppg) and Dier (53 ppg- and part of that is because he drops into CB) see more of the ball than Eriksen (51). That's not a player shirking responsibility. He's trying to play incisive passes, he did Saturday.

    If this was in someway conscious, he'd be risking fucking up his chances of that big move wouldn't he?

    Nobody is playing well right now. We as a team aren't playing well right now.

    They way we have to “currently” operate means one or both of two things, which is basically what Levy said the other night in a politician kind of way.
    *Clearing the decks of deadwood, which adds some cash and frees up some wages.
    *Sell a top player to raise some serious cash, but limiting the free up of wages.

    Jack Grealish was never the dream signing, but a signing with some proven ability in the EPL and still lots of potential to tap into, a player Pochettino could get a trick out of maybe, without emptying our entire “limited” transfer budget at the time. We couldn’t clear the decks of the deadwood last summer (nobody wanted them) and we were not prepared to sell any big players (that was a priority) so finally the entire transfer budget was offered up to Villa, who’s circumstances changed very quickly and that ship sailed, Pochettino decided not to spend any of the money just to get a deal done (wise move)
    Hypotheticals here, and Levy sticking to the plan “and his word” and assuming this years transfer budget is similar to last years (25m?) that would set up an initial 50m of raw transfer budget, Dembele added another 10 to that and we “must” clear the decks of the deadwood, and quickly, even if they are not all the offers Levy wants, they need to go to give Pochettino a chance here....I’m not going to even guess what these players would fetch but let’s go for around 40m, then that’s a 100m to get us started....now back to the thread, Eriksen in my opinion needs to be sold due to his contract, we can not let him walk next year for free, if Levy let him do that then the whole “way we operate” becomes a complete joke.....so conservatively, Eriksen pulls in another 75m?? we now have 175m burning a hole in the pocket....then of course theirs Toby and his contract, and the 25m buy out clause (he will have his choice of clubs at that money) but it is what it is......Tottenham Hotspur with 200m to spend...umm, Pochettino could fine tune Fulham for that kind of money!
    If Real were even the slightest bit interested in Eriksen I’d be thrashing a deal there before the month of May even ended!!
    A DeBryune type midfielder is a must, and if letting Eriksen go to make that happen, I could live with that!!

    And the comparisons to the “pub player” goes on and on and on.

    Despite the “pub player” trouncing him defensively and the stats posted to prove it from StopspotStopspot

    Why don’t you compare him to his peers? You know, Sane, Hazard, Mane? And other in form creative attacking mids, and stop trying to constantly re write history and make out he’s a predominately defensively box to box midfielder.

    Are you fucking mental mate.

    You even said he wasn’t playing as a deep lying playmaker....you use his stats as an attacking mid over the last 3.5 years to PROVE how good he’s playing.
    Then you say he’s not an attacking mid.
    Then you say he has the same role as Sissoko.
    Then you use his assists and goals to say he’s better than Sissoko.
    Then you ignore his defensive frailties and say “of course he’s not a tackler”.
    Then you say he and Sissoko have different roles.
    Then you compare him to Sissoko again.
    Then he’s a number 8 “like Sissoko and Winks but not like Winks”
    Then he’s an AM again
    Then he’s not an AM because Ryan Fraser has more assists and goals
    Now hes fatigued

    Please, please just go and have a rest.
    Watch football, it will cure you illness.

    Since 2012
    Which over seven years equals 13 posts a day

    If you had a life, you´d know that....but clearly you have so much going on

    I wonder if you have facebook, instagram or twitter?

    Why the fuck would I compare him to wide left forwards?

    I have never made out he's a "defensive" box to box midfielder. I've said that much of this season he's played as a left sided "8" in a CM3, (with Sissoko playing the right sided 8) and that any midfielder has some defensive obligations. His piers, or players playing similar remits most weeks are D Silva, B Silva, Kovacic, Barkley, Pogba. with whom he compares very favourably.

    Why do you persist with this utter bullshit. Doing 20% better in his 2 aerial duels per game is not a trouncing. Doing 15% better in his 1.2 tackles per game is not a trouncing. They still make the same amount of tackles per game, Intercept almost the same per game, Eriksen wins more pressure events, more pressure recoveries, more pressure adjusted tackles.

    Stop fucking lying.

    Doesn't seem to work for you. You called Sissoko a DM and Eriksen a deep lying playmaker, and now he's a wide forward ?

    You just spew out this constant stream of inane, tedious, childish, passive aggressive, wise-fucking-acre, straw man bullshit.

    It's really fucking tedious.

    Oh dear......you mean Eriksen that has been regularly deployed on the left side of an attacking midfield
    And right away you play down his defensive duties....and say he’s a left sided “8”. So he’s an attacking mid from the left side of our midfield. Yes....indeed, why oh why would you possibly compare him to other left sided AMs

    So far he’s not a forward, not a playmaker, isn’t defensive, isn’t left sided, isn’t an AM, isn’t box to box..just an “8”

    :pochfacepalm:




    Sissoko trounces him defensively, the stats are just a few pages back.
    Even saying he is 20% better than a pub player is embarrassing.
    Pressure events don’t exist. It’s jockeying....it’s not stat worthy, and that’s why you like to keep using it, along with the fact he ran 40,0000 km in a game, like it means something



    I called Sissoko a DM and still would.
    You wanted to nit pick it to death so I can happily concede he’s box to box with defensive priorities.
    You think he has the same role as Eriksen and are trying to say that Sissoko plays on the right and Eriksen in the left as “8”s

    8 isn’t a position since 1992, so what is Eriksens position, in words.

    He is an AM, a creative midfielder, left sided forward and has been playing recently as a deep lying playmaker.
    That’s just facts.

    You think football is defined on a graph, that’s why you call him an “8”.
    It’s not a thing. He is a creative, attacking mid, playing a deeper role.

    Disagree all you want, just shows you don’t know what you are taking about.

    Sissoko is there to provide balance to our transitions. Our latest transition appears to be one to Europa League competitors.

    Hopefully Real Madrid will switch their attention to Ryan Fraser.

    I personally can see a future where Hazard goes to Madrid, and if Bale isn’t part of that deal then Eriksen goes to chelsea. If he won’t sign, we have to sell him.

    I don’t care what they do, if they’re smart they’ll just go for Hazard

    Madrid not coming in for Eriksen doesn’t automatically mean he stays.

    He could afford a better hair transplant surgeon if he did, however.
