    You are ridiculing a fact. You are making the suggestion. In essence you are ridiculing yourself.

    Weak attempt at a get out clause. Your post that I referred to was the suggestion. The stats you quoted were intended to be unambiguous and were interpreted as such. Bearing in mind you clearly don't rate Lamela, I think your post was a thinly veiled dig, though a poor example.

    All stats are facts. You're making the assertion our form dipped because Lamela was re inserted into the team. Is that a fact? No.

    Lamela hot takes. So hot right now. Lamela hot takes.

    Agree with your post, but what the hell does that mean in bold? Never heard it before, I assume it means something akin to the scapegoat?

    Edit: No worry google sorted me out :D

    Hot takes are absurd opinions/reactions to things

    We all know you hate Lamela dude, Why do you keep posting these little passive aggressive missives like a big fucking girl. Just come out and say he is shite like a real man. Don't worry, we are not going bite you. After all, your opinion rates fuck all on the opinion meter. :D

    Sorry mate, been a bit busy to respond, I think isinuating I'm blind is a bit rude and offensive seeing as I wasn't really laying into the lad.however he has 4 goals this season 2 against asteros one against Brighton and one against burnley. 5 assists in the league is ok but compare it to Eriksen 9 goals 1 assist in the league and and Chadlis 7-5 he doesn't come close to matching up in the prem. he hasn't even torn it up against weak opposition in the other competitions according to the stats you refer to.

    I am not even saying I think he should be dropped for somebody in our current squad. I am suggesting he be moved on because in my opinion and I watch and pay to watch a lot of games at whl, he has not performed to the level expected and his decision making is poor. I would love to know your opinion beyond just quoting stats as to why you think he is so good. But please don't call me blind.

    Ask yourself why he is always picked?
    I think it's because he plays exactly how the manager wants.
    Pressing, tracking back and tackling.
    It's not what we bought him for, but if it's not happening at one end he at least does the dirty work.
    That part of the game is underrated on here, it's a team effort and that's what MP expects.
    I want him to score more goals and I'm sure that will come.
    I said many times he should be more greedy, he has a wonderful strike in his locker and should use it more.
    He needs to be more consistent, but I think that applies to all of the team.
    Those he think he should be moved I ask you this, how long does the next guy get?
    What if depay came and didn't turn it on for the first season?
    Ditch him and find another?
    I think those supporting him would be saying he needs a season to settle.
    So does Lamela, come the end of next season and he's not improved I could be with you.
    One last thing, I watch every game and don't go to the lane much (work commitments)
    I have the benefit of constant replays and different camera angles to analyse every move in the game.
    Spending loads of money and going to the lane?
    What does that mean? It's a genuine question and no malice intended.

    THFC19 was virtually on his own for a couple of days seems the EL fan club are back in force.

    So, what can we all agree on.

    He has improved his tackling and tracking back.
    This is a primary requirement for MP's system.
    There is no better alternative for that requirement in the squad on the RW.
    He can play the odd killer pass.
    He is weak carrying the ball forward.
    He seems not to be able to beat a man 1v1.
    He often is dispossessed.
    He is nowhere near meeting his transfer fee in value for money.
    The areas of improvement are not the areas we would expect for his position.
    He has not yet had a full season.
    He should be judged after say October presuming he stays injury free.
    If we received an offer of around the 20 million mark we should take it.
    Should get a run at CAM.

    @ Haters or fanboys is that about right?

    It just means mate that I'm not an armchair fan who doesn't see the work he does I do. I'm sure he does get picked all that much the stats don't suggest that. Eriksen starts but it's much of a muchness. We'll see how much Poch fancies him tomorrow won't we? I'm patient with players mate I just don't don't think I've seen enough in the last 2 seasons to warrant the price tag. When you consider what Eriksen and Chadli have done with 10 mil to spare. Think it could be time to cut our losses. Think there are others closer to the exit but IF he doesn't show more spark between now and the end of the season I personally wish him all the best but move him on.

    What's that got to do with selling him or not? You're right in what you say, but it's not exactly a reason to suggest that we should sell him.

    Think you can add
    Has a decent shot but hardly ever uses it
    Finds pockets of space better than anyone in the team.
    Seems to get a complete brain freeze whenever he gets the ball
    Looks as though his legs will snap when he gets tackled.

    Wouldn't it be great if he came on tomorrow proved us all wrong and won us the cup. Even though I've been critical I would love that to happen.

    However ineffective he has been with us you cannot take that rabona away from him, I just hope that is not the pinnacle of his Tottenham career

    A&C is starting to realise that your name appears alongside far too many of these little episodes.
