I liked Erik Lamela before it was cool

    8 years is a pretty acceptable lifespan for a dog.

    Never been convinced of his suitability for us and I once described him as a circus act before just accepting he was fully onboard and doing his best.

    Will be remembered for unrealistic expectation and two truly wonderful rabona goals.

    Any time he looked like he was going to push on he, unfortunately, got injured. Always gave his all so can't fault him on effort and seemed to love playing for us.
    Should've probably parted ways a few years ago though.

    If you look up intelligent clam there's a picture of Lamela and that stamp on Fabregas hand is one of the most beautiful moments I've seen in football.

    Who's going to fudge up the opposition with minutes to go, then steal their water?

    I like the bit where the ref and dyche do a moonwalk together.

    I think I read that Gil has a 35m Euro release clause. We're therefore effectively selling Lamela for 10m Euros. That's a reasonable price for him I think.

    It's probably a good deal for both parties

    - Lamela will be effective in La Liga, him having a first team place will be good for him
    - We get a young exciting prospect on less wages

    Good luck to him if/when he goes. Always worked hard and gave his all everytime he put on the shirt.

    Yep, and even on the way out is helping the club (most players hate swap deals)

    I'm gonna miss him! Wore his heart outside the shirt! If more players had his attitude and fight, we would have won the PL at least a couple of times in the last 7-8 years, and probably a few cups as well.

    Won me a shed load of cash too (when I gambled)
    Used to back him when he came off the bench to be booked at 14/1 at least
    Literally everytime he would get booked within minutes hahah

    As said if others had shown his attitude, will to win we might have won something in his years at the club

    It's a shame he's had to leave and it's never quite worked out for him but a decent player who always tried his best even if that was rarely good enough.

    I'll keep an eye out for him at Sevilla and see how he does.

    A player who gave his all, never moaned and knew what it meant to the fans.
    For various reasons, all understable, we never really saw the best of him and if sevilla play to his strengths we will see what we could have had.

    Goodbye and good luck coco.

    What are his strengths?
    The player I saw at Roma that I was so excited to see here wasn’t the player we saw unfortunately

    The way that he could execute difficult maneuvers with nonchalance was something that I love to see in Spurs players. Hopefully Gil will continue the tradition

    This may be my favourite, certainly for the way that Townsend just dies a bit inside and Rose is flabbergasted
