Agree. And the is it burn out, is it this or is it that arguement matters not a jot. Either he is performing well enough to warrant a place in the team or he isnt and nobody can argue that he is. So he should be dropped. The fact he's still starting while leaving at the end of the season just takes the piss and thats what has peoples backs up. Has mine anyway.
It comes down to our old friends Danny boy and ENIC I am afraid. He is a fast diminishing prized asset don't forget. Wasn't the quote £150 mill at the start of the summer? And now? And so January is the last chance to get some pennies in for him, innit :) If he is omitted from the squad for like 6 months, and doesn't play a single match, who is going to come in for him in January? Absolutely no-one. Especially if they can get him for free 6 months after. So this is the last chance to put him on the shop window, hope to entice desperate buyers, and hope to get some pennies in. They must be fuming at his form :LOL:

I thought this on Eriksen was pretty spot on:
"Christian Eriksen, by contrast, darkens the mood every time he takes the field.

Is anyone really upset by Eriksen’s desire for a fresh challenge? Some probably are, possibly aggrieved at his decision to make a private matter so public. In most cases though, at a guess, the fans are just sick of him. Not the person, but the component. They’re tired of hearing themselves complain about his corners and free-kicks. Bored of seeing him press the ball, but then allowing his opponent to drop a shoulder and skip away.

The premise of that criticism is unfair, because Eriksen was fundamental to what Tottenham were for so long. Nobody embodied the improvements Pochettino provoked with greater clarity than he did and, for about two-and-a-half years, nobody was a more critical omission from the Argentinian’s teamsheet. He was the team’s mind and, on some days, the sum total of its craft.

But that’s the danger of being so integral. If a player and a team are almost one then, inevitably, it becomes very difficult to separate them when things aren’t going so well. In this instance, Eriksen has become a symbol of everything that needs to change about Spurs.

For no better reason than there’s just nothing more to say about him. He’s never going to be better than he is right now. He’s never going to learn to do the things that he can’t. What, then, is the point in any sort of debate – what is the value in getting annoyed about any of it?"

£150m? Not sure about that.

The alternative is to keep him out of the shop window in the hope that people think they're buying the player he used to be.

Judging a player by assists is somewhat flawed - you could be the most creative passer in the world, but if you're passing it to a Bobby Zamora you're not going to have the stats to compete with someone playing balls to a clinical striker who scores from nothing

Or maybe his attitude stinks when playing for us and he cares a lot more about representing Denmark ;-)

Doesnt matter if Poch making a hash of things or not, still doesn’t excuse his sloppy play for us this season.

You was fishing for bitches and I bit... 🙈🙈
