Danny Rose is back in training after an extended lay off that has seen the lad out of action for over eight months.

The old medial knee ligament was the cause but Rose’s real battle with rehabilitaion will come in redeeming himself with Pochettino.

The carnage of The Sun interview is something ‘young’ Danny still climbing out of. Gladys advises that the club will be putting a brave face on their public relations in respect of this, but the 27 year old is fighting for survival on two fronts.

With Bonzo gone, the shape of the Spurs backline has not only significantly changed but Ben Davies has become frankly undroppable.

Yup, Rose and Walks were part of a great defence, but the past is gone. There truth is, that Bonzo bailed at the optimum moment and Rose missed his moment. Hence the spectacular failure of his ‘don’t forget about me’ nonsense in the press.

Can the boy Rose reinvent himself at Spurs? My default position with morons is to suspect an unflattering outcome.

Rose is a depreciating asset and the market rate for an English left back – irrespective of a double digit IQ – is buoyant.

There is a veritable wheelbarrow of statistics that demonstrate that demonstrate Davies to the the superior player, however many of you are obsessed with things that ‘go fast’ and I’m not sure I can be done this evening being told how exciting Hot Wheels™ are, by people communicating via the medium of Alphabetti Spaghetti.

    Well, if having your glass framed print on sale in the “goodies” bin at the website, along with that of Janssen is any indicator http://shop.tottenhamhotspur.com/category/spurs-goodies-sale, no, there is no way back.

    Davies is good, but has a tendency to be caught forward, or caught back. I am not “speed is everything” but in a wing back it makes a huge difference. If an attack breaks down, Davies does not get back in time, Rose does. That said, I would rather drop a mercenary footballer from a great height, when you are paid more than 150 times the national average, chasing a buck really shouldn’t happen.

    Unless rose is wearing 9 t shirts and a there’s a hot water bottle under his top, we won’t be seeing him anytime soon.

  • ronwol196061🇨🇦 October 11, 2017 at 10:34 pm

    How many great games has Davies played?
    He has come on a ton but what are we talking 5 or 6 weeks.He is being spoken of as sliced bread ffs

      Forgotten about the last half of last season already?

      He’s a model professional. Not flash, but highly competent.

    Harvey Weinstein used a casting couch? Hardly breaking news about the film industry, as Marilyn Monroe said “I used to spend a great deal of time on my knees”.

    Is Hollywood now pretending this is a shock? Hypocrisy and humbug.

        Add “HW donations” to Clintons cigar. After the Vegas horror, Clinton and Co went straight in blaming the NRA etc, but Took a week to criticise a fat millionaire who rapes young women…..some online trying to compare Trump to HW. Trump really should not be in a position to win in 2020…..but he will at this rate.

    I would hate to see Rose go to manure. What happens if Davies loses form or gets injured.? Davies has been terrific for us,but what happens when he is up against the likes of Sadio mane, or someone with pace and quality? If he gets shown up fans will be calling for rose.
    Rose is a dick for what he said, but that is part of the plan his agent and mourinhio are planning.Keep Rose and never sell to manure.

  • McG⚽⚽į October 11, 2017 at 10:10 pm

    Lamela’s nearly back, straight in me dream team once match fit and back in the side..

  • gloster1861 October 11, 2017 at 10:02 pm

    It will be interesting to see how Rose is used.

    • McG⚽⚽į October 11, 2017 at 10:03 pm

      Left side of defence I recon..

  • Hartley™ October 11, 2017 at 9:54 pm

    It’ll be good to get Rose back, Davies will need a rest for domestic cup games.

    • David Dillenberg October 11, 2017 at 9:56 pm

      One for you Hartley?

      A village pub has been named the best restaurant in the world in an international poll based on customer reviews.The Black Swan in Oldstead, North Yorkshire, beat Heston Blumenthal’s The Fat Duck and Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir.TripAdvisor said it was the first time a British restaurant had won the title since the awards began in 2012.
      Blanc’s Belmond Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons in Great Milton, Oxfordshire, came second.

    • David Dillenberg October 11, 2017 at 9:48 pm

      IMO it is senseless selling Rose to one of our elite rivals unless of course Manure entertains an exchange swapping Rose for Shaw and Lingard!

      • McG⚽⚽į October 11, 2017 at 9:58 pm

        Shaw and Martial, I’d even be happy to chuck in a few mil on top, not sure about Lingard

        • David Dillenberg October 11, 2017 at 10:01 pm

          Previously out of favour, now that he is an integral part of the team and won over Moaninhio IMO Martial is a no go. Ditto Lingard perhaps?

          • David Dillenberg October 11, 2017 at 10:03 pm

            Shaw and Ashley Young?

            • McG⚽⚽į October 11, 2017 at 10:06 pm

              Young’s too old.

              • David Dillenberg October 11, 2017 at 10:06 pm

                Agreed but could add experience/cover along with Carrick and Smalling!

                • McG⚽⚽į October 11, 2017 at 10:08 pm

                  Now you’re just on a wind up!!

    Davies to me is not top notch he just has improved greatly.He could be but not yet.
    Rose is a tough bastard,strong in the tackle and strong going forward.
    Silly money I would take if ee cpuld buy a world class CM

    Tough? Hence his injury record. Don’t make me laugh RW!

    • gloster1861 October 11, 2017 at 9:46 pm

      He’ll be targeted now. Downhill I fear.

    • ronwol196061🇨🇦 October 11, 2017 at 10:24 pm

      Dont be dumb when you are not Glos.
      He fuckong goes in hard like Wanyama,Walker,the last Brazilian we had,Dave 2 broken legs Mackay…need more?????,

  • SpurAndy 🍒π October 11, 2017 at 9:39 pm

    Davies is good, Rose is better.

    • gloster1861 October 11, 2017 at 9:42 pm

      Rose doesn’t cross well. Davies makes better use of the ball. Which is the whole bleeding point.

      • McG ⚽⚽ October 11, 2017 at 9:47 pm

        I agree with Andy, still feel Rose is the better baller…

      • SpurAndy 🍒π October 11, 2017 at 9:53 pm

        The clues in who our rivals would rather buy.

        • gloster1861 October 11, 2017 at 10:00 pm

          And who we will allow to go?

          • McG⚽⚽į October 11, 2017 at 10:02 pm

            Yep, just as we did with Bale, Berbs and Modders..

  • McG ⚽⚽ October 11, 2017 at 9:33 pm

    I look fwd to having Rose back. Davies will need some rotating, & the pair pushing each other for a first team place will benefit the side. Hopefully all water under the bridge in a month or two’s time. Makes me laugh how quick some people want us to sell our decent players, was Eriksen this time last season…

    • gloster1861 October 11, 2017 at 9:36 pm

      Alternatively, I can argue that Davies has improved greatly by being played regularly. Rose can fill in when we have two games per week. ‘Fill in’ is the phrase I prefer.

    • donald October 12, 2017 at 2:48 am

      I figure over the last year nearly all the team have been subject of rumours to be sold, mostly to Man Utd. I heard, from a well connected source, that the FA were considering letting Man Utd have a squad of 36 instead of 25 so that they don’t sulk

  • ronwol196061🇨🇦 October 11, 2017 at 9:22 pm

    I think these days with Pochs rigid training and expectations of players work we need to double up on positions and not play then every game

    • Mad Carew October 11, 2017 at 9:25 pm

      That’s why Shaw would be perfect, happy under Poch’s wing, content to play in rotation, the right age and potential to be the best.

  • Mad Carew October 11, 2017 at 9:15 pm

    Even if he were to get back to his best in the PL all it will do is increase his transfer value, no way Poch & Levy will have a Supergrass at the Club, Luke Shaw & £30m in loose change and Poch will bring Shaw back up to his peak (as he did at Soton).

    • AccringtonSpurs October 11, 2017 at 9:16 pm

      would rather Celtic’s Tierney than Shaw.

    • ronwol196061🇨🇦 October 11, 2017 at 9:21 pm

      Luke Shaw was made by the person who will make Davies

  • ronwol196061🇨🇦 October 11, 2017 at 9:09 pm

    But I would respect both players and give them quality games each and secondary games each

    • ronwol196061🇨🇦 October 11, 2017 at 9:12 pm

      When a crazy bid comes in then re look at it

      • AccringtonSpurs October 11, 2017 at 9:13 pm

        It’s good if we make a profit on him – but if it ALL gets reinvested in one player i.e., Sessegnon, that’s not great biz

        • ronwol196061🇨🇦 October 11, 2017 at 9:17 pm

          Davies is good enough if we get a great CM

  • ronwol196061🇨🇦 October 11, 2017 at 9:08 pm

    Rose is tough. He can stand up to any top player.
    Davies is very good,he has been playing great..but is he great? Not yet.

    • AccringtonSpurs October 11, 2017 at 9:09 pm

      Like people have been saying on the inter web it’s a good job Mané is injured for Liverpool as we don’t want a repeat of Davies up against Mané.

      But yes, he’s been excellent

    • ronwol196061🇨🇦 October 11, 2017 at 9:16 pm

      Davies to me is not top notch he just has improved greatly.He could be but not yet.
      Rose is a tough bastard,strong in the tackle and strong going forward.
      Silly money I would take if ee cpuld buy a world class CM

  • ronwol196061🇨🇦 October 11, 2017 at 9:05 pm

    At worst Rose can be the greatest winger presser that ever lived

  • Matty k October 11, 2017 at 9:01 pm

    I said the day the Sun interview broke that Rose should be sold. Nothing’s changed. Get rid

    • ronwol196061🇨🇦 October 11, 2017 at 9:19 pm

      I disagree.
      He was better than Walker and sees City wanted him.
      In theory we all want our players to be loyal but its all business for them.Its different for the fans.

  • Blanchflower October 11, 2017 at 9:01 pm

    Until the last two seasons his potential showreel consisted of the one goal against Arsenil. Two seasons of good attacking left wing back and he genuinely believes he is Roberto Carlos. I pity the lad. Been infected with a bit of Bostock-itus I fear.

  • AccringtonSpurs October 11, 2017 at 8:49 pm

    It’s a shame Rose had to do what he did. Still clinging to what fans used to say about him – I get that. but they worshipped him for a while now – he can’t see how far he’d come. Shame.

    He may have kept more fans had he just complained about signing players you have to google rather than saying he remembers what the fans used to say, that he was worth more, and that he wanted a move up north.

    He’ll have to prove himself all over again after this lengthy spell. Not long till January.
