Eriksen Update? Better Late Than Never, Football London
By Harry Hotspur -

The mooted return of Christian Eriksen to Spurs is set to become an increasingly tortuous business and Football London last night published a piece allegedly providing the truth. The bare-bones being that Eriksen’s agents are seeking to get the Dane back into Tottenham, and that Mourinho isn’t convinced.

The truth my friends, was published here some 3-months ago, when The Boy Hotspur told you that Eriksen wasn’t wanted back at Spurs. In that piece, the killer line was, ‘The Boy Hotspur understands from a source close to the club that media speculation about a return of Christian Eriksen to Tottenham is fiction.’

Of course, the agents of Eriksen have been in contact with Spurs, it is my understanding that they have been in touch with just about anyone who’ll take a call, in order to scramble their boy out of Italy.

Indeed, it is crucial to retain any semblance of credibility for the agents that it looks as if Levy would even consider a return to N17. Mourinho is highly unlikely to publicly debase Christian, so the longer the suggestion of a return can be kept alive, the more hope there might be of someone else stepping in and ending the Inter nightmare.

Add to this, we have the mumblings of fans with short memories seeking greater entertainment and pitches for Eriksen providing a creative spark start to sound plausible. But they are not plausible. The Dane is 29 next month, and it’s all well and good saying that he became poor with us because he didn’t want to get injured, but serving up the same lacklustre stuff for Conte raises serious concerns.

In conclusion, people who go back to their exes always manage to overlook the most appalling aspects of their past so readily, and people who want their inside information first, read The Boy Hotspur.

Let him go to the Goons

Really torn on him. Would take him back if he managed to get back to his best – but that’s a big if, as he hasn’t been “on it” for a year and a half now probably.

I don’t think Mourinho will fancy a player who doesn’t tackle and goes missing in games, AND has been below par for quite some time. We need consistent, reliable players who are 7/10 even on an off day.

I’d take him back. Talking of short memories, people have forgotten how many chances he created at Spurs. More than anyone else in the league while he was here.

As for the big games he went missing in, that’s not been our issue this year. It’s the smaller teams when we’ve got most of the possession and the onus is on us to create. Can only think eriksen would be helpful in those situations. Got to be an upgrade on sissoko/winks in those games…..

Chances Tintin created? This wasn’t many.. His passing and chances created was sub par for his position in the prem… He topped assists in two or three years because he was feeding our one and only striker Harry Kane…. Tintin flattered to decieve… We have a top war general in Mourinho.. He won’t want a wet fish like Tintin back…. He forced his way out of the club for pennies of what he was worth… He made his choice.. Good riddance.

Jose should watch the CL final the club participated in. Jose needs players who step to these occasions. The Dane went missing.

Agreed – although he went missing a long time before 1st June 2019.

Despite his obvious deficiencies which we are all fully aware of, currently struggling for a creative spark I would take a punt on Eriksen who can at least pick a pass and chip in with goals!

I wouldn’t. He took the art of disappearing in games to a new level. Better to stick with Alli unless he’s loaned and we bring in Sabitzer.

Apart from Houdini I think Defoe holds that crown.

That’s way too expensive a punt. Yes, we could do with someone of his passing quality in the midfield, but he well and truly burned that bridge on the last season he was here. Be happy if we took a pass on this one.
