    He's probably our most technically adept player. Alli has the gift but Eriksen has done it in big games for club and country for a few years now. His chance creation and assist stats are as good as anyone in the league and don't tell me he can't shoot. Corners maybe he could work on but let this guy leave and we've got to plug that hole with around 80-100m.

    He also puts in massive shifts in the press, covering as much distance as anyone else in the team in plenty of games.

    This sitution and the Toby situation don't sit well with me. Maybe Levy's had his eyes, so focused on the stadium, its shafted our contract negotiations.

    The delays to new WHL are to Levy what Brexit is to May :eek:

    Alli has done it more in big games for the club that’s for sure

    £80/£100m though is enough to replace him wIth

    I wish this myth that Levy didn’t do enough would cease. It simply is not true. They have been trying to get Eriksen to sign a new contract since the summer before last. He has not because he dreams of Barca. As for Toby, again, he demanded ludicrous money versus his injury record PLUS he irked the manager a few times. Remember, we had a deal sorted with him only for the agent to shift goal posts once VVD signed for the dippers.

    Hope he’s as keen on Madrid.
    Fans think Daniel spend all day playing with the scale model of the new stadium in his office.

    Come on. We all know Levy is stashing money away somewhere and refusing to spend.

    It would have been in Levy’s interest to have Toby and Eriksen signed up, even if just to protect their value. The only thing that would really disappoint me is if their replacements earn more than what was offered, I.e if Levy offered them something at the top of our scale then there’s not much else he can do.

    Ottawa, actually.
    It doesn't make sense because Levy would want to maximise their value as much as anyone else - max sales price is what he's after.

    I absolutely don't believe Levy didn't do enough with the negotiations for Eriksen and Toby - that would be silly. He did what he could, but Eriksen wants to win things, and Toby wants a payday. We can't offer either trophies or money, so they're out. Simple as.

    However, do I believe that Levy will offer Poch Aldi bargain-bin replacements (if any) this summer, while Poch insists on top drawer or nothing? Yes.

    I think Eriksen is just knackered. Maybe it is just my perception but it seems to me that he has played more games than our other first team players, especially in midfield. Hopefully he'll have a bit of freshness back ready for our run in.

    We are all just guessing. The summer will sort it!

    That is where things could sticky. Unless the manager specifically says he wants a certain player, compromises are not going to go down well.
