Its not the hope that kills you like many suggest but it's the checking every 5 minutes to see if he has signed a new contract yet. Cut and paste this to the TA thread 😉

*Body language expert alert* but I'd imagine the reason why Eriksen looks so calm and cool is because he knows either way he's going to be fine. Either Real Madrid will come in for him and he will secure his "dream" move or he puts pen to paper to a contract at a club he loves and is adored at and will be compensated quite handsomely. Don't think there's much more else to read into what he's done in Singapore to this point.

Im up for him leaving full stop. It maybe a unpopular opinion and I do understand that , hes played some wonderful stuff in the past, none last season though .
We're second prize to him, he's second prize to me.
I just cant get my head around rewarding him with an improved contract for the crap he played.
Its taken me a fair while to get here,he was one of my favs, but I'm as positive as I can be the man will be crap again this coming season, as most are who don't give two s***s about the team they're in.
I hope he goes, if he doesnt , they're are a fair few of us that will need some big, big, winning over.

I would like to see Eriksen play in a more open Poch system.
When we are fluid Eriksen really excels in that.
I find when we are moving the ball side to side slow building he is one of the culprits and the possession game may have been something Poch instilled in him.
I would like to see more fluidly as our main game and not this war of attrition till the opposition gets tired.
Eriksen can thrive more with an open game and Ndombeke behind him

Eriksen was below his own standards last season, perhaps even below the standards required for a starter in a side with lofty ambitions, but he was not crap, he was actually decent, with a few poor games but also a few very good games.

Mate, id give my left nut for him to perform how I/we all know he can. For me when he's up for it he can play anywhere. He let us down last season, and its only my opinion, but it was because he lost interest in us. He had a CL final, played like a chump. Almost cost us against Ajax.
That i find really hard to forgive.

Not to mention it could be the first time in Eriksen's Tottenham career that he has had genuine competition for his place/the ability to rest.
