I’d rather keep him than Richarlison. Has much more about him as an all-around forward. He’s a very good player.
Keep both and bring back Gil and you have some fantastic options that can offer a little bit of everything.

Between now and the end of the season I'd love to see Danjuma given a run of games in a 4231. Would also like to see a Sarr/Skipp double pivot, Richarlison up front and Kane in the number 10 role.

If we keep doing what we have done all season I can see us dropping to 8th so we may as well try something different.

We need to see if Danjuma is worth keeping for next season as early evidence suggests that he might be but would need to see how he does in a more attacking set up over a number of games.

Great point on the Fighting Cock pod that Danjuma clearly shows why squad refreshing is important.

The guy is clearly playing for a move either to us on a permanent or to another prem team after the loan and so is really showing up. He wants the ball, he's trying things and he's certainly not shying away. Even things as basic as him staying behind and extra training work helps. The guy actually *wants* to get on the pitch and influence games which I'm not sure you can say for a lot of them atm.

You need players like this who are at different stages at their journey with points to prove to drive competition and lift the squad. And you also have to actually give them minutes so they don't lose that drive and the players who have shirts don't get comfortable.

Couldn’t agree with this any more. Every player needs to constantly feel the heat that poor performance will land them on the bench or replaced by a youngster from the U21’s or replaced in the transfer market. It’s one of the reasons (not just Ten Haag, like some people are trying to suggest) Man United have now surpassed us again, they have continually refreshed their squad and not let anyone get comfortable ever. I couldn’t name a single player in their entire squad that’s ever been allowed an easy ride to keep their shirt and it produces a drive and sheer will to be the best player you can be, under the pressure that you will be losing your shirt if you don’t. If any player can’t perform under those circumstances they don’t belong in a team challenging for honours

Just a shame that the managers dont pick him. Would much rather see him start than Son ATM

I don't understand why we don't give him a go at LWB. We could push him and Porro up and move Kulusevski more central, then you can have Skipp and Hojbjerg focusing on shielding the defence and it would mean Romero could have a bit more license to play wider defensively which he's better at.

Played 124 minutes. A brilliant business by Levy.

Another fine example of the failings of the Spurs football management. Spending money on a player without any clear plan on how to utilise him. Has happened too many times already.

And yet some people dont want to blame Levy for the mess
