Once we peel past all sea-lion fans hoping at the fact that these players haven’t died in their sleep, is this an admission that have perviously lied to us about Erik Lamela’s alleged training sessions?
Additionally does this mean that Lamela is ready to train properly at long last?
There’s a gulf in difference between turning up – and turning up being of any damn use to the team.

As ever with the Spurs’ player/fan relationship, we have form for shall we say considerably ‘romanticising’ the worth of players that have been out for a while. And Erik Lamela has been out for a while.
No surprise that Lam-Lam is the first face on the line up.
Wait for the ‘this is just like a new signing’ pitch from the club. When is he going to train with the rest of the team? When is he going to be ready to play Premier League football again?
It’s July and soon will be August. From August it’s a mere hop and skip to October.
You know that old joke when someone says that they’ve been married for 20 years – that they could have been done for murder and been out by now?
By October he’ll have been out so long, he could have been banned for a year for substance abuse. Thank goodness that isn’t the case and I for one eagerly look forward to his imminent return which the above Tweet clearly implies.
