    Based solely on footballing ability and what they'd bring, I'd go for Eriksen rather than Dele just because I dont see how Dele fits into a Mourinho 4-3-3 type team

    The HG point cant be ignored though as you say. We'd need to also sell/loan etc one of probably Moura or Lamela too and bring in an English replacement. I think its more likely that Eriksen arrives, Dele stays and Moura/Lamela leaves...but even more likely that none of those happen and we dont do any business in Jan!

    Eriksen always seemed like a sheepish guy, can't imagine how sheepish he'd be returning here. Sure it wouldn't be good for his game.

    off the pitch I’ve been told he has quite a dark sense of humour and takes the Micky a lot

    Eriksen fits Jose more than Dele.

    Be happy to take Eriksen back and send Bale back to Madrid. Save a few £ and get someone who might contribute

    We can't replace Dele or Bale with Eriksen unless we drop another foreign player from out European squad

    Fair point. We really need to address the HG/non balance in the squad, particularly amongst the 'non first 11' players - players like Moura, Lamela, Sanchez, etc dont add much ability-wise and also complicate signing first 11 players

    This is disingenuous Rodge, there are 5 players we can easily drop that contribute almost nothing.

    Jose said something to that effect afterwards - something like 'let's see whether he can get some minutes on Wed'

    He looks ready for some proper Premier league minutes to me, whether that's starting or as a half time sub.

    It's not a direct replacement then though, which is the point I was trying to make

    Great attitude and performance against Marine. Love to see the sort of thinking he displayed while he was out there. I want him to stay, sort things out, and be the part of the team he was previously. There's so much talent there to unlock. He only has to look at how Kane has modified his game to understand that he, too, can change and succeed.

    The role he played (deeper) is the only role I see him able to get himself into PL team with.

    - I think the front 3 in the PL is set -> Kane, Son, Bergwijn (or if Bale hit crazy form later in season)
    - The 3 behind? PEH, Ndombele +1 (rotation right now is Sissoko, Gio, Winks), Dele could get into that rotation, especially with teams that sit off.

    Up to him, he will have some choices to make as I suspect PSG/Poch will come calling

    Didn't watch the full game yesterday, but from what I saw his attitude looks very much on point.

    If he's very unhappy with how he's being treated and wants out he's trying to get out by looking good to potential clubs he could go to.

    Showed his class, it's easy to say that he should, but we all know that isn't always easy.

    Hoping for him to get more chances to show what he can do going forward.

    He played well, took 10-15 mins to settle in (could be us be cautious knowing they would have high energy in beginning, could be the pitch or just rusty)

    What I like about yesterday was he took responsibility for the game (not just contributing), he tried to control the tempo, move the ball around, be the midfield person that controls the game. That I haven't seen very much of in the past from Dele.

    His attitude and even application is not really the issue for me, it's more that impacting the game. I've been critical of him this season because I felt against lesser opposition (Europa) it would be a huge help for the team if he could impose himself on the game (as his talent would allow), let us put games to bed earlier and rest/rotate more.

    He did well, lets hope he can show that he can fit into the team and take Jose orders on board. Its in his hands.

    If Mourinho’s intention is to get him back up and running, then Fulham would be a perfect game to put him back in to try and push on from the good performance yesterday imo. Dropping him again straight after playing well doesn’t do anything for us or him.
