I so don't want us to sign Eriksen for some reason... It's the same feeling i had about Dempsey.
Two problems with this in my opinion.I can understand the opinion in not preferring Eriksen individually, but it is unfathomable to me to suggest we don't need an upgrade at CAM.
Two problems with this in my opinion.
#1: It's highly questionable how much we're actually going to be playing with a CAM this season, and
#2: Is he really an upgrade? I haven't seen him play, but a lot of people have made very convincing arguments that he's overrated, and that his form has sunk as well.
That is irrelevant. He just never seemed like a Tottenham player to me. And i have the same feeling about Eriksen.
Are we speaking hypothetically? Mata, Ozil, Mkhitaryan.Fair enough, to each their own. And not criticizing, but curious as to who you feel is a Tottenham player who could step into that role and perform?

Realistically, Holtby. When he played at the U21 Championship, he looked like exactly the player we need. It's time for him to step up.
Why does everyone want Eriksen so badly? He's not the player everyone thinks he is. He has been shit for Denmark for awhile now and has been outshone by Siem De Jong and Viktor Fischer at Ajax. He's definitely not progressing as everyone thought he would've. If we have the money than Willian would be a much better buy.
