Its quite possible that the reason both Poch and Jose keep playing him, is because on the training pitch he's likely light years ahead of anyone else in terms of that technical prowess. Jose dropped him at first, but he's back to putting Eriksen in midfield because no one else has that speed of thought in him. He's closest we have to a De Bruyne.

Shame that he can't be arsed no more.

Fuck sake, I can't handle him staying until the end of the season. Watching him jog about is going to raise my blood pressure 40 points.

Genuinely can't remember a Spurs player who has made me more irrationally irate.

Sad really as he’s only half of what De Bruyne is.

Not sure why we aren't just taking whatever is on offer. We are going to lose him for nothing in the summer and he's not performing anywhere near what he is capable of so what is the club gaining by keeping him?
Well you are trying always to have a strong position on the market. For future deals too.
We maybe hope Inter is a bit panicking end of the month and pay up for him to increase their title hopes.

And as we still use Eriksen all the time he still has a certain value to our squad. We need to finance a possible replacement in the Winter too.
I would agree that argumentation with Victor though as he has absolutely zero to give to our first team anymore unfortunately.

Personally I still hope we agree a deal and get a playmaker in.

Well I suppose if the Eriksen situation is going to become more of a norm then there is strength in your argument. Hopefully Inter will move a bit closer with enough time in the window that the money could be put to good use.

lol, he is exactly what Inter needs to challenge for the scudetto.
Inter are neck and neck with Juventus and are playing very well. Eriksen will have to earn a place in their team. Given his current form that’s unlikely to happen.

He's only in that current form because his thoughts are elsewhere and he wants to avoid injury. He'll be superb for Inter.

It's just negotiation. It's pretty clear Levy would have a desire to sell for anything more than a bag of crisps but he obviously doesn't want to give off that impression. He'll just be trying to get a bit more out of them. Conte has a tendency to throw his toys out the pram when he doesn't secure his transfer targets too.
