This sort of faux vitriol is why football fans are generally mocked for being either drunken louts or children.

We are over the moon when other players say they want to come to us but find it abhorrent when the roles are reversed?!
Whats worse is that he didnt say that he wanted to leave
“I will say this too — I will play up north. I don’t know exactly when, but I will get back up north and play some football somewhere.

“I moved away from home (from Leeds to Spurs) at 16.

“Yes I’ve got team-mates who have moved away from families in South Korea and Argentina, but I have been away for over ten years now and I don’t get to see my mum that often.

“I am going to make it my priority before I retire to play football up there.

“My short-term focus is to get back to playing like last year and if I do that the long-term will take care of itself.

“I’m not saying I want out, but if something came to me that was concrete, I’d have no qualms about voicing my opinions to anyone at the club.”
He states that before he retires he wants to leave the club and play close to home, which is something we hear from foreign players all the time. He isnt saying he wants to leave but says if he anything concrete comes he would talk to the club about it

What he said was very naive and stupid but I feel this has been an overreaction from our fans

I guess the reaction will be based on whether or not you think it was naive and stupid or that he knew exactly what he was saying and how the majority of Spurs fans and the footballing "sphere" in general would interpret it. Seeing as these guys get quite a lot of media training and that he's 27 years old now, I just don't see how anyone can think it's the former.

No disrespect intended.

Hopefully Poch gets asked about Rose's fitness in a press conference soon. Seems like he hasn't even been at the training ground, which would be strange. (I'm sure I read this the other day). Fitness or been asked to stay away, it will be one or the other.

I would still like to see us unveil a huge banner on his return featuring the Google search bar with 'average wage of UK worker' typed in. Petty I know but the arsehole deserves it

Then he probably should act like a professional , not to tell whom to google and whom to not right ? What fans were saying and what a professional should say - are two different things and both of their opinions should vary. A professional should not act like a fan ...
. . . and yet we are bored of these players who have no personality and never say anything other than a scripted response.

Pochettino saying vaguely he has no idea when Rose will be back. No info on what's holding him up. Nothing. Something just doesn't add up here.
Starting to seriously think we've seen the last of Rose in a Tottenham shirt unfortunately. I reckon he's gone in January.

I think it will be this or all of a sudden he will be back on the bench for an away game.

Something is definitely up, you're right. I wonder if he's been banned from the training ground or something. Not to even hear of him being there is very strange. Plus we've had no itk on him, almost like he's in lockdown.

Nothing like overthinking something into a conspiracy. It was just a nasty ankle injury that didn't quite heal right after the op, IMO.

Probably the long term injury that was already keeping him out before the interview? (n)

What the knee injury from January,
8 months ago?? Why aren't they being more specific when he'll be back. What's the problem with his knee. All too vague. All a coincidence I suppose after his outburst!!
We'll see soon enough(y)

Yes, just like Lamela who's been out for close to a year. Injuries happen. We've already been through multiple of these jumping-to-conclusions episodes in the Lamela thread at least 100x now.. do we really need to go through it again here with Rose?

I get worried about our medical team, they are never very precise with their estimates.....

The latest for Danny 'coming weeks'

Lamela - 'advanced stage of rehabilitation'

They also start with the Lamela stuff to make it sound in some way 'positive', I hate our PR team. Poch was on record saying he is not sure whether Rose would be fit for last season, now 4 months on and we get 'coming weeks'.

So is that 2 weeks or 10 weeks?

Why do they need to be specific? He'll be fit when he's fit and anything else is a guess which is of no importance. Sure, we'd like to know, but so would our opponents.
