    Anyone who genuinely cares what his sexuality is needs to have a long hard look at themselves. Most important thing is his performance for the team not anything else.

    Whenever a player has had a prolonged unexplained absence in recent years eg. Wilshere, Carroll, Berahino, it has always been drug related. I would say that is the only logical conclusion.

    It's not fucking unexplained. Poch has always said it's a hip injury.

    Fucking hell.

    What about it is unexplained?

    It's regularly been said to be a hip injury.

    His contribution has not been overstated. He created the 6th most chances in the PL last season. That suggests he is very important.

    And that was the best he has ever played for us. We haven't seen anything like that before or after. He is capable of it so fans are right to demand more but that's just my view.

    Not strictly true. He made about the same number of key passes and chances created per 90 minutes in the games this season compared to last season.

    I have no problem with people demanding more, I agree he needs to score more goals, but I think the suggestion he isn't important or that only members of some sort of cult rate him is ridiculous. Obviously you didn't go that far, but even then I don't understand what you mean by saying his contributions are overstated. I think some fans go over-the-top with suggestions he is our most important player, but the facts are that he is vital to our creativity.

    He hasn't played for four months, you could recover from a hip replacement in that time frame. His hip injury is like Gareth Bale's strained buttock.

    We haven't seen anything like it before because that was his only season since he joined us without a flipping injury!

    Maybe if he hadn't of had this injury this season he may have produced more of the same and saved me from having to witness the carthorse sissoko play so many times for us in the white shirt

    You haven't got a clue what his specific hip problem is though, do you, it could be anything. Unless you're part of the spurs medical team you have absolutely no detailed information to go on.

    So you're just making shit up to fulfill your own agenda.

    Lolz! We haven't seen anything like that before or since. You act like he's been at spurs as long as walker

    He played just one full season before that, and has barely played this season

    Wow - so you do not believe a player has any right to privacy?
    It is the player's registration that is bought and sold, not the person themself.
    Clubs do not own the players, nor the fans by extension, so you are not owed any explanations.
    Medical records are confidential, and so are many of the FA's actions.
    You might not like it, but that is the way it is.

    Great spot!

    Indeed, that also happens when you search for "Erik Lamela alien". What are they trying to hide?

    It actually turns up with any search featuring the chap, so he must be up to all sorts. Keeping up with a reputation management challenge like that must be a full time job for our Google notifications team.

    You're absolutely entitled to your views and I appreciate your contributions to this website.

    My view is that this board is for discussion and when the facts are vague and then a well known ITK then adds more uncertainty, then it can naturally lead to speculation and I don't mind that. It's part of the fun of being a non-official club forum where we're not being censored from having the discussion.

    You and some others do mind that. That's cool, but a little picture of a tin of spam won't suppress me into not at least having the discussion with others that want to have it.

    I've been on here for 11 years and one of the best things about this forum is the variety of debate and views. If you start suppressing that then you end up like the other Spurs forum I care not to name.

    You get the same when searching for "Dele Alli drugs" or "Christian Eriksen drugs" or even "Mother Theresa drugs". This fucking thread...

    Nobody is trying to suppress you from having reasoned discussion - people have an issue with the unfounded speculation about him being a druggie.

    What possessed Grey Fox to post what he did is anybody's guess. I could take a stab at it, but I am on thin ice.
