    I don't think that's true. He started this season excellently and was decent when coming back from a very long lay off a year ago.

    He will be moved on soon along with Wanyama.
    We must stop keeping players with chronic injury histories.

    Not sure he has a chronic injury, the quote of managing his fitness seemed to me to be about his all action style of play, especially in the really hectic schedule periods.

    Nobody is playing well at the minute, we’ve been crap all season really, obviously we have largely got away with it results wise but other than Sissoko (and recently Rose) I don’t think anyone is hitting their numbers.

    I would add Jan into the success for this season.
    And Sissoko :).
    Everyone else has been patchy at best.

    Jan has had his moments imo, he’s also noticeably slower than he used to be.

    Levy will get rid this summer imo
    His purple patches are too infrequent in the SIX YEARS he’s been here.

    And I’ll never forget the city miss ;)

    If you're going to remember every first time shot missed from outside a crowded box I hope you've got a big memory.

    I am not sure that will happen, but IF it does it will not surprise me.

    And don’t get me started on only having one foot and the subsequent ‘ribonas’:rolleyes:

    His injuries though have been horrible and sad for the lad.

    He will be sold I agree
    It’s an area we need players to perform in consistently but also stay fit

    Saying that Poch does love him

    Poch needs to help Coco get a good move.
    He’s given the lad every chance at Spurs!

    Let’s hope he has a blinder tomorrow and proves me wrong.
    Bet he gets a yellow;)

    He's had two long lay offs but his fitness has been pretty good, those apart.

    I think that you have become a little blinded to his qualities.

    He certainly struggled when he first joined the club and has had two, nasty, long, injuries but he has been consistently good outside of that and always been in Poch's squad when fit and often in the first 11.

    He was great in the first three/four months of this season, when much of the rest of the team was struggling. He'll come good again and I think that he will be here whilst Poch Is here.

    He had a good spell early in the season.
    Then once again gets an injury and looks laboured and all that smoothness and touch has gone again.
    Time for us to stop keeping players with ongoing phisical problems.
    Wanyama and him have problems, sad but brick happens.
    Fit and your right can plays some lovely stuff but then sadly these hip problems flare up again!
    Very sad.

    He has missed more than he has played
    And now he doesn’t look a top player, more a functional one that works hard.
    Still see a big issue being his lack of a right foot which holds him back
    If we were to go for someone like Bowen I could see him replacing Lamela

    Yeah, you're right, sell that Kane muppet as well, him and his glass ankles.

    Mexico..All's I'm saying
    Kane misses 4-6 weeks of the season and still scores 30+ goals for fun. He’s our best player so not sure why has been shoehorned into the debate.

    Lamela doesn’t need to be replaced IMO. He’s a great option to have as a backup player. I think it’s clear that our first choice AM options behind Kane are Eriksen, Son and Alli with Lamela and Moura slightly below them on the totem pole.

    Lamela was arguably our best player for the first couple of months this season but i don’t think it’s unfair to say his end product/form have tailed off since November time. If he can regain his early season form then fantastic but when everyone is fit and available I don’t see where he fits into the staring eleven.

    It was a joke, a bit of light relief. Laugh at your troubles kind of thing.
