I'm not so sure that the problem would be solved overnight, because most of these players aren't the sharpest tools in the shed. They've been getting away with these things for several years, so these habits are more or less second nature to them by now, but they'd get the message at some point...
What's the betting that the cheapest option in the short term turns out to be the most expensive option in the long term because the owners of a building have to pay experts to clear up the mess left by the original company?
I don't think it's uncomplimentary to mention the need to spend money to win things. We've managed to make a fair amount of progress over the last few seasons, but we still have nothing tangible to show for playing some the best football in England. As people point out every so often on here...
If I were working on a rival club's new stadium, I would still do the best job I possibly could. Professional pride would make sure I do. On the other hand, my Spurs instincts would tell me I shouldn't even be anywhere such a project.
No Spurs fan wants to think about losing Eriksen, but it's almost certain to happen, unfortunately. Yes, he might sign a new contract, but we're probably clutching at straws if we think that's going to happen, at least as things stand just now.
For the record, he played 63 League games, scoring 62 goals, from 1928/29 to 1931/32. Although his time with us was entirely in the old Second Division, that scoring rate is still a bit tasty. By contrast, his 4 FA Cup games for us brought just 1 goal.
Greavsie scored 20 or more in the League alone in 7 seasons (1961/62-1964/65 and 1966/67-1968/69). The season he missed that landmark, 1965/66, was when he was recovering from hepatitis. Even then he scored 15 in 29 League games, which most forwards would be reasonably pleased with.
