£10m? That's the same amount we sold Soldado and Paulinho for and Townsend went for more. Bentaleb's had much better performances than all of them. Seriously, in today's market, the purchase of Bentaleb this summer for £10m would basically be theft.

Theywere all poor, not diff to beat their performances!!! Not exactly the guage to use.

don't know why eriksen can always escape from criticism even when he performed as poor as the others
You can defend the player you love all you like but stop posting bullshite. Foreign players at Spurs rarely escape criticism. Eriksen may not get jenas level of criticism but he does get a load of them. If you are comparing mason to eriksen as if they are on par in terms of importance to Spurs then I can only despair.

There would only be half the posts on this forum without them!

Eriksen has a bigger contribution to spurs so what? When he performs poorly no one criticize him. When mason performs well his contribution is rarely recognized but when he performs poorly so many spurs abuse him more fiercely as if he is an arsenal player, and you call yourself fan lol

How do you know what his personality type is? Seemed to be fine for Poch last season.

There was a game earlier in the season where Bentaleb came on as a sub. As soon as he came on he started show-boating and flipping the ball over his head in the middle of the pitch. He then lost possession in a dangerous area and I remember Poch going absolutely nuts on the touchline. That seemed like a bit of a decisive incident because he didn't get to feature much after that even when he was fit. Maybe he doesn't listen to what he's told. I'm ambivalent about keeping him. Decent player but massively over-hyped by some IMO and has always been a defensive liability. I also have no idea what people are seeing when they say he drives us forward and moves the ball forward well. What I see is a lot of sideways and backwards short passes that amount to not very much in with the odd moment of brilliance like his cross for Kane v Arsenal.

To however rated the post creative, try googling bentaleb psg.
Keep your knickers on - all offended by a 'creative' rating. Going to question every rating? Since when has 2016 last year anyway?

I've heard over the last couple of years stories about how Bentaleb has been wanted by all Europe's top clubs - especially when he was angling for a new contract. Do you know what, he's still here. I have not though heard anything (to my knowledge) from any ITKers that he's on his way. Having said that this is no guarantee - maybe he will and maybe he won't as I don't know how the club rate him and what info others have. I have though heard that his entourage (family) are reasonably creative in terms of talking their client up.

So I think the news that he's wanted by PSG is indeed a creative story, as were many more of them. (y) I await ITK on this.

As it happens I believe because of his injury problems etc, and also that he has hopefully patched up his differences with MP that he should be retained.

Can someone point me toward the Bolasie ITK? Or does @Drexl take the hit for bringing that shit into this thread?

Likewise the Wanayama (or whatever his name is) stuff, where's the ITK on that please?

Were you defending jenas, rose, walker, lamela, vertonghen and many more when they were being criticised? Mason does not get credit for doing well? He was being praised to heaven by some for simply turning in decent performances.Have you been reading bus conductor's post on mason for example.
