Lo Celso needs to play nearly every week instead of Eriksen.
Anyone willing to dig in and put in a shift (not wanting out) needs to play

On the fence about our Belgian centre backs, but Eriksen, Aurier, Rose and Wanyama should not be given priority selection, we need to build around the rest who want to be there

Good to see Dier used at CB for example, he's not the greatest there, but he's ok at least and wants to be at the club. Foyth likewise at RB, needs games, still young, hopefully can grow into that role.

Would like to see more of Skipp and KWP though, bit hard for Parrott to get a game with Kane and Son around, so maybe a loan in January for him unless one of them two get injured?

Spurs are a quality team, Id back Poch to turn things around, could go on another CL run. They should take what they can get for Eriksen in Jan and reinvest it in the squad.

Yeah I agree about Eriksen. Wouldn’t have said the prior to the season but it’s pointless having him here now as he’s not contributing. Get what we can for him, but I’m not sure anyone will bother coming in when he’s gone on a free a few months later.

You are right about someone waiting to pinch him on a free (Juve special) but surely there's a club that would take him for 15-20m in January as he is still a quality player.

Maybe Madrid, depends how their season is going I reckon. He’s so shit at the moment though it might put any potential suitors off. Maybe United will come in for him but the talk is he wants to go to Spain

Yeah I've always thought he wants Barca or Real Madrid

Don't think he'd work in Simeone's system at Atletico as they're more of a 4-4-2/4-4-1-1 kind of side unless he wants to play as a wide playmaker permanently, otherwise they'd be an ok club for him also. Feel he's a 4-3-3/4-2-3-1 kind of player

Maybe Var not so good in the champs league. That was a clear dive by the striker on Bravo. Basically went searching for him and kicked him in the head. Hadn’t dived, he probably scores

PSG could be an option.

Should have copied what that absolute nutter keeper did when he’d leave the ball loose, then pick it up & dive into the oncoming opponent & call for a foul

Crazy. This guy used to play for my hometown team. Looked like a talent really but clearly had some issues.

The letter J is pronounced differently in Spanish and Portuguese (and might be different again in Brazilian Portuguese).

Jose Mourinho is pronounced Jo-say because he's Portuguese (and not Ho-say as a Spaniard or Latino would be).

The European Portuguese way of pronouncing it would by Je-SOOZ (emphasis on the second syllable)

Correct.

The J in Portugese is pronounced like the J in Beijing.
