He has interested Fulham who were relegated last season and Hamburg who were almost relegated last season.

You obviously think he is good enough for us.....I despair.
Quite the difference in not believing he's good enough for us and simply being an asshat with comments like yours. He's done nothing wrong while he's been here in terms of his personality and desire while on the pitch. He didn't live up to the promise but in the end he's just a failed £1.5m purchase.

Come on,I like Lewis as a person but he simply isn't good enough for us.
As I have said before...............Spurs fans should not get attached to players,if they are shit we will sell them and if they are really good they will want to leave.

True.

Player must have ability to make impression to people with their performance not their personality.
But his personality and devotion was too good......
I will miss him ...

Never quite worked for Lewis, I don't think he has been used in his proper position. I feel he is a deeper midfielder than a no.10, which he played a few times, and a bit like Siggy he's a good player who was never going to fit into the system we had when we signed him.

I hope he does well and I'd expect him to leave next summer, assuming we don't ask for too much

Hope he does well, I do not expect to see him play for us again sadly. He never really had a decent chance here I feel.

People complain about us having a trigger finger, they should see how many managers Hamburg have gone through recently
It's not Hamburg. It's the curse of Holtby. Just look at his record since December.

AVB - Played him, got sacked
Sherwood - Said he had a Spurs future, sent him on loan, got sacked
Meulensteen - Brought him in, got sacked
Magath - Played him, got relegated, should have been sacked
Pochettino - Read the danger signs, shipped him out
Slomka - Brought him in, got sacked

Much as I like him, he's like the footballing version of Typhoid Mary. If Slomka's replacement lasts until Halloween, it'll be a miracle.

I swear I saw him today in Hertford Town Centre driving a LHD f.off convertible Beemer with German plates ?

Come to think of it I fell off my stepladder shortly afterwards. Jonah.

(y)Lewis helped Hamburg get a point at home to Bayern today
Didnt wtch the game, but looked on whoscored and saw he only completed 40% of his passes which didnt seem too flattering, then I saw the team stats...How many busses did they park to only have 26% possession and 55% pass accuracy? 5? 10? No wonder why Holtby only completed 40% of his passes.
