    His experience of really having to fight his way through the youth ranks and unsuccessful loans could be invaluable to the academy.

    I always thought he was a better prospect than Tom Carroll, he seemed to be moving the ball and the team forward rather than knocking it sideways or back. Hopefully he can pass on his knowlege to future young Spurs.

    Probably the only classy player to have worn a Chelski shirt since their financial doping began.

    Saw this elsewhere:

    Mason said: “I can’t speak highly enough of Petr Cech. He’s set the standards of what it is to be a proper man and a gentleman.

    “Straightaway [after the incident] he contacted my family and my fiancée and reassured us that what we were going through was normal and to be expected, with not being able to talk and struggling with light and everything like that.

    “As soon as I got a bit more strength I was keen to see him because he said, ‘as soon as you’re ready, I’d like to come round and speak to you’.

    “I think it was after about eight or nine weeks he came round. I was a bit worried at first because I hadn’t really spoken to anyone for longer than ten minutes. He walked through the door, sat on my sofa and said, ‘just sit back, don’t say anything, just listen’ and he spoke for about an hour and a half.

    “I didn’t say anything, he just spoke and it was brilliant because when he left my partner said, ‘wow, the things we were a little bit worried about…’ It just reassured us that everything we were going through was part of the process of recovery.

    “We’ve been in touch ever since. He’s been round to the house again and we speak on the phone regularly. He’s been fantastic.”

    And Mason says the example set by Cech in helping him means he would have no hesitation in offering the same levels of support to anyone unfortunate enough to suffer a similar injury.

    “I’m sure if someone goes through that again [what we’ve been through] we’ll be fighting to be there for them and to support them,” he added. “It gave me such strength, hearing him explain how much of a positive impact it can have on someone.

    “I’m hoping no one ever does go through that sort of injury again in sport but, if they do, I will be there [for them] like Petr was for me.”

    From what Poch has said it sounds like he will personally make sure Ryan comes back as a coach. Don’t know weather he’d make it as a manager. But more often than not those that had a career cut short by injury quite often are more determined to make it as a manager.
    I was disappointed when he left as I liked him as a player, compare him to Sissoko no hesitation on what one I’d want in my squad!

    For a player who was sort of star crossed when it came to injuries, Mason had a lot of really great moments. He finished off that great passing move against Sunderland to get Spurs a 1-nil victory, had that great goal against Forrest in cup when Spurs had been flat and were behind and he and Benteleb were relentless in midfield, snapping into challenge after challenge against the goons when Kane got both goals to win it. He also always came across as a thoroughly decent guy and when Poch did decide to move him on, there was no drama, no recriminations. I really am sorry his playing career is over, I hope he enjoys and thrives at whatever he decides to do next.

    I am delighted that Poch would welcome him back in a coaching role, if he is interested.

    It's a nice sentiment to say he can come back as a coach, but we don't know if he would be well adapted to it. Maybe Poch knows, he seems to know most things. Maybe it is a role coaching the under 11 girls team or doing those care-in-the-community things with disadvantaged locals; he would be a good fit in terms of empathy, brain injury etc.

    I'd love to see him at half time at the Juve game. No alcohol on sale in the concourses (except Club Wembley) so the ground should still be pretty full if he were to come out pitchside at that game. The reception for him would be huge.
