PLAYER REVIEW: Erik Lamela

This will be brief-ish as I’m sitting in our old motor as an AA man tries to get her going again….a bit like Erik Lamela, now I come to think of it.

I’m a fan of Coco on several levels:

1.  He loves Spurs and really wants to be at the Club, as he’s just opined when signing his new 4 year contract.  We’ve stuck by him and now he wants to repay that.

2.  On the pitch, he never gives up.  Works incredibly hard for the cause and was an integral part of the irrepressible side of a few seasons back before his injury.  He’s an absolute nuisance to our opponents’ back line.

3.  He definitely has talent and an ability to do something both unexpected and eye-poppingly exciting…whether that be with his cultured left foot, or some slinky ball skills to beat a man.

On the flipside, he can be frustrating to watch.  Drops deep into good space to pick up the ball, turns, drives forward…and then holds on to it just too long, or his touch deserts him, or he runs down a cul-de-sac slowing down the counter or, worse, turning over possession at a time which leaves us exposed.

He knows Poch, his system and how his teammates play by now.  We need to see him staking a proper case for a starting berth.  Truth is, as a squad player he is valuable.  As a starter in the first XI?  He needs to prove that he is worthy of that, bearing in mind he’s likely to be fighting Moura and Son for the 4th attacking place in the side (assuming HK, CE and Dele keep their spots).

In the end, what it comes down to is that Poch trusts him enoeuf to give him #fourmoreyears.  That’ll do for me.

      Vacation, well done HD, refreshed me lad?

    yes, but….

  • AntSpurs 23/07/2018 at 2:19 am

    Love you all , we all get a little sensitive which is what I noted from this evening. I really felt bad for strangling glos, we’ll really he is a heavyweight and allowed the jostle. Everyone here is not about because they’ve been dumped but because they love / we love each other and the same goes for Harry . That guy was the the reason we all found each other and it’s so easy. Harry just let your guard down and realise the brilliance of what you did. If you are a man of salt , despite your persona or as you described me (multiple personas) stand up and let’s all join. This side for the sweetie stuff and your for the angst. Not being funny but that’s what excited me and us all but don’t be a sad act. Stand up. You’re better than this . Your site was beautiful and to have both together would be even better. Anyways love and respect . Ant

    • AntSpurs 23/07/2018 at 2:23 am

      Ok I’m over it now , but Harry you have not lost your business , or had it stolen, you’ve created a whirlwind which is only good for the spurs. Don’t let your ego as I have done get the better of you. Tomorrow join here and we’ll all join forces. You are a great writer but you need to make amends

      • AntSpurs 23/07/2018 at 2:23 am

    • ronwol196061 23/07/2018 at 2:26 am

      I’m with you Ant. If Harry would understand what really happened and why he would be much better for it.

      • Syd 23/07/2018 at 2:42 am

        Wow that’s some heavy stuff

          • AntSpurs 23/07/2018 at 3:33 am

            It’s heavy and it’s not. It is heavy left like this. Harry I know Is a good guy. He really needs to just hold his hands up. The longer this continues the harder it gets. Harry reminds me of my sister,who I used to stand up for no matter what. She turned on me and not only have we not spoken for 3 years (keep telling her time is running out) but she does not let me see her kids. Never allowed it. Then my mother tried to help and now she can’t either. This is fucking bills hit man . I’m having now to tell my son because I ..////anyways life is short man, realise your worth mr hotspur, I could have been dead of it wasn’t for your hard work . I don’t tell you what to do but for fuck sake. Come on the site or allow us back and just say what you feel. Don’t be a cunt, good night. That’s the last word 😘

            • Syd 23/07/2018 at 3:36 am

              Ant, why don’t we just stop talking about Harry and move on and enjoy what we have. I’m off for a little while but take care mate. We just all love Spurs

  • AntSpurs 23/07/2018 at 3:37 am

    Ok no more syd 😘

    • GDawg 23/07/2018 at 9:15 am

      With all the stuff you clearly have going on places like this should be a sanctuary, where you and the rest of us can escape and enjoy banter over a common interest. Not a battleground. I’m just thankful that those involved have set up this new place, to exhibit all of the best of the old place 😘

  • Fat Bertha 23/07/2018 at 7:43 am

    Good golly Miss Molly Ant sure loves to Partay! Ant, I’d ask for a pint of whatever you’re on, but I suspect the cause of last night’s youthful exuberance is more to do with what you’re not on. No wuckers mate, but make sure you look after yourself.

    • Flat Oeuf 23/07/2018 at 7:50 am

      Yup. Well said.

    Antspurs, we need your energy on the pitch!
    I get your meaning, there are many Spurs blogs and they all have their differences (it would be pointless if they were all the same). Horses for courses and all that. I don’t think a single blog again , if that’s what you mean, is possible, but peaceful or certainly non-aggressive co-existence ought to be.

            I imagine a pro’ footballer can’t just take the day off pre-season training without permission from his current club? (Unless you’re Odemwingie, of course…)

        • GDawg 23/07/2018 at 10:33 am

          Grealish. Don’t know much about him. TBH doesn’t think much of him. I’m receptive as long as Poch has agreed to it

          • Chauvelin 23/07/2018 at 10:42 am

            Well, he has certain standards… unless they’re at least 50 million they must be junk.

            • GDawg 23/07/2018 at 10:44 am

              Kovacic is a pipe dream

              • Chauvelin 23/07/2018 at 10:52 am

                I thought a realistic central midfielder would be Gomes. But I think Foyth might be a possibility in there, he looks a cultured footballer.

                • GDawg 23/07/2018 at 10:54 am

                  Is he on tour?

                  • GDawg 23/07/2018 at 10:58 am

                    Foyth I mean

                    • Bardamu 23/07/2018 at 11:00 am

                      Yes, he’s there 👍🏻

                • McG ⚽⚽ 23/07/2018 at 11:00 am

                  Yeah, Gomez does seem realistic. I quite liked what I saw of him on you tube, more so than Grealish as it happens.

    • Sniper 23/07/2018 at 10:32 am

      Work on the theory there won’t be any transfers.
      Then if there are, it will be a nice surprise.

                Didn’t Hercules on SC say (no names of course) that he is definitely not content?

                • Bardamu 23/07/2018 at 11:06 am

                  I think I did read that, yes.
                  It’s hard to know how reliable these ITK’s are.

                  • Caspurs 23/07/2018 at 11:11 am

                    The problem English clubs have is, maintaining the quotient for homegrown players, If a club wishes to bring in another foreign player it may well be the case that another foreign player will have to be sold to make space in the 25 man squad. A big issue is the early closure of the English transfer window, this means our clubs are effectively disadvantaged. Spurs need to sell a foreign player in order to sign a foreign replacement i.e. one in one out. European clubs know that if they wait, English clubs will be forced to sign the players they need, and that after the 9th can be held to ransom as PL clubs will need to offload players in order to meet the quotient. This scenario leaves PL clubs with little to no leverage when negotiating with European clubs, resulting in having to accept lower transfer fees.
                    I support the move to close the window before the season starts but, perhaps this change should have been postponed 12 months, and not introduced in in a World Cup year.

                    • Bardamu 23/07/2018 at 11:14 am

                      I think I’m glad if English clubs get rinsed a bit and the European clubs make some gains. We’ve had it all our own way for too long with the Sky money.

                    • UnkleTaff 23/07/2018 at 11:17 am

                    Out of the lot of them Herc comes across as one who isn’t a mouthpiece for the club. His posts during this window have gone from expressing optimism, to irritation, to downright criticism. Which worried me.

                  • Fat Bertha 23/07/2018 at 11:24 am

                  My default position is that Pochettino is fully content with life at THFC and no amount of ‘IDHAFC’ will shift me from that position. He’s been given the biggest train set in the world to play with and, whilst there will always be minor frustrations along the way, the bigger picture is that he wouldn’t be able to shape a club in the way he is doing anywhere else in the world.

                  • Chauvelin 23/07/2018 at 11:23 am

                    Spurs start off at a brisk canter, and the world will be a lovely place.

        • Fat Bertha 23/07/2018 at 11:20 am

          That’s the way my wife has approached life since she met me. Or so she says. She’s still waiting for a surprise.

  • Bardamu 23/07/2018 at 10:57 am

    So, United let me down on a nice pre-season double last night by not being able to beat a side languishing at the foot of the MLS, even with the likes of Alexis and Martial in the line-up.
    On the upside though, by all accounts they were as dull and ineffective as last season. P’raps once the title is out of sight, this could be the season José hits his self-destruct button (again)?

    • UnkleTaff 23/07/2018 at 10:59 am

      I would not be in the least bit surprised if Utd finished this season with a different coach to the one they started it with.

      • Bardamu 23/07/2018 at 11:01 am

        Likewise. He does seem to have this 3-year cycle and it’s his 3rd year. (There’s a joke in here for an opportunist…)

        • UnkleTaff 23/07/2018 at 11:05 am

          There’s obviously no way of proving this I know, but you’ll never convince me that Utd wouldn’t be a lot closer to City than they are now if they’d stuck with van Gaal.

          • Chauvelin 23/07/2018 at 11:08 am

            José is a ticking time bomb. His ego is wound up so tightly.

            • Bardamu 23/07/2018 at 11:12 am

              I’d like to see some stats, but I can’t imagine Van Gaal’s win record was any worse?

              • UnkleTaff 23/07/2018 at 11:15 am

                My view is that van Gaal usually needs three years before it starts to come together. By the end of his time in charge at Man U they were really beginning to click (playing some lovely football along the way) and ended that season by winning the FA Cup.

                The board dropped an almighty b*llock when they binned him for the short-term gratification merchant that is Mourinho.

                • Bardamu 23/07/2018 at 11:18 am

                  I’m inclined to agree and think Utd fans would be much happier with the football under him than they currently are. I see many of them complain about the football every match-day. And Van Gaal was a winner too – a great CV of trophies.

              • Chauvelin 23/07/2018 at 11:19 am

                The raw data is van Gaal 1.81 points per game, Mourinho 2.06.
                But bear in mind that van Gaal was taking over from Moyes and the squad was in major transition.

                • Bardamu 23/07/2018 at 11:28 am

                  Thanks, buddy. Yes, definite rebuilding. Also worth mentioning Jose has probably spent £500mill or so since he took over!

                • UnkleTaff 23/07/2018 at 11:28 am

                  …with de Gea single-handedly being responsible for 0.5 of those points per game.

                  If they should lose him they’re stuffed.

                  • Chauvelin 23/07/2018 at 11:39 am

                    Many years ago, 1975 in fact, I was at Loftus Road and Pat Jennings kept us in the match against Stan Bowles and the rest of ’em. A QPR fan we were with complained bitterly that without big Pat we’d be getting a hiding. It was explained to him that goalkeepers were part of the team. He wasn’t best pleased when John Duncan snatched a late winner.

            I feel a bit like Jodie Foster did getting ready to get jiggy with Richard Gere.

            • Fat Bertha 23/07/2018 at 11:57 am

              Excited but cautious.

              • Chauvelin 23/07/2018 at 11:59 am

                I thought Gere was excellent in Chicago. Preferred Zellweger with a bit of meat on her bones in Brigitte Jones though.

                • Fat Bertha 23/07/2018 at 12:02 pm

                      Obviously not the latter, but same soapy sentiment.

                      Although not stuff like Mama Mia. Recycled pop songs do not a musical make.

                    • Fat Bertha 23/07/2018 at 12:09 pm

                      The only musicals I’ll accept are Annie and Oliver!

          I don’t have to slag off Daniel all the time, I feel confident there’s plenty of that going on in other places.

          Also, it loses its impact if you’re seen to blame him for everything. I mean, it’s everything, Levy this, Levy that, Levy t’other.

      He looks very slight in pictures from recent seasons. Has he bulked up a bit? Not to say he couldn’t be effective in the role if his distribution is good – it’s not all about muscle.

      • Chauvelin 23/07/2018 at 12:15 pm

  • SpurAndy 🍒 🥧 23/07/2018 at 12:13 pm

    Initially thought the early closure of the window was a good idea but now it looks like we’re at a disadvantage compared to the rest of Europe. I’ve set my expectations low for incomings on the basis we already have a damn fine team. A couple of top performers would of course be welcome but we’re sitting in a position of pretty good strength so I’m not so sold on the mantra that everybody has to have incomings or they’ll wither. I think our needs are not as great as most of the PL for different reasons.

    • Chauvelin 23/07/2018 at 12:16 pm

      It would actually be wrong to make a desperate last minute signing if nothing comes off. Rather no deal than a bad deal.

      • Bardamu 23/07/2018 at 12:18 pm

        Keep Toby and Dembele if deals haven’t come off?
        It wouldn’t be so bad at all…

        • Chauvelin 23/07/2018 at 12:21 pm

          Toby yes, Dembers is a declining asset by his own admission. I thought Italy would be perfect for him.

          • Bardamu 23/07/2018 at 12:34 pm

            Likewise, but if there are no takers he could certainly still do a job in many PL matches, if not the CL. A crocked Dembele can still school most of the PL’s midfielders.

    offer more than the selling club wants? fastest way to bankruptcy i can think of. but yes, we should occasionally offer what they want to get the damn deal done
    i have only dipped in and out of this site sporadically in the last ten weeks, where is everyone? it is not the same without the wisdom of ron and the contributions of others. summer hibernation due to lack of interest brought on by inactivity in the transfer market? umbrage taken at relentless criticism of the bald one? cannot believe that is it. silly season? brexit distraction?

    allow me one thought as i wander off on the winds of time to soon become a fast fading memory. if your revenue depends on hits/comments whatever; well some thought provoking comments from more of the old crowd might be a good idea. cannot see that the largely illiterate rantings of the likes of tappaspur are going to lead to extensive comment sections. i say this as someone who has always enjoyed this site and while i have not always agreed with your rants on levey and enic (i still recall the dark days of sugar and the darker days of near bankruptcy under scholar) i have nonetheless enjoyed the comments (frankly withing 6 or 7 comments whatever you wrote about is often irrelevant as the participants take it in other directions; which is how a good site works and you should take praise for that). but i do not see some of these newer particpants taking it anywhere other than downward to the gutter. just one man’s thoughts

              I think it’s all media. I still believe, perhaps naively, that MSM hold themselves to a higher journalistic standard. But they are not immune to untruths distortion and position taking themselves. The thing is, you can find all the news you want out there to satisfy your world view. No one knows what is real and what is not these days. Strange times we live in

              • Chauvelin 23/07/2018 at 1:00 pm

                An academic, some UK professor of sociology, explained the impact of malicious blogging, as for instance Russia is accused of (I will put it no stronger than that), is to get people to doubt everything. It never was to convince people of one position, but to create an environment in the West where trust is lost and confusion clouds every issue.

                I’m not saying he’s right, but the worldwide web has been a Pandora’s Box. Or possibly a Curate’s Egg, good and bad in parts.

                • Sexy Beast 23/07/2018 at 1:07 pm

                  And we know that the Mainstream has lied or at the very least been an echo chamber for the War mongers who sold us the WMD fantasy, and told us regime change would be good in places like Iraq, Lybia and still they want to remove Bashar al-Assad. Crazy!!

              • Sexy Beast 23/07/2018 at 1:02 pm

                Er when the alternative media show (with clips and documents) just where the Mainstream is lying and the Mainstream then call for the shutting down of Some alternative news outlets for being “fake news” that’s when you know that the world is in some kind of upside down situation.

    Stadium not finished. OMG! Pfft. The truth is, the stadium doesn’t need to be finished by the Liverpool game. All that’s required is that the stadium be fit for purpose to host football matches.
    The ticket office shambles? This was not scheduled to be finished by the time the stadium opened.
