Lamela was here longer, though. Even if he did miss 90% of his first season and spent ages injured. Toby wasn't unknown to the medical team either.According to Transfermarkt Lamela and Alderweireld played 257 and 236 times respectively for Spurs.
strange but true.
This article focuses too much on his shithousery and yes this is a bit of what endeared him. But it was his effort levels when he got on the pitch which made us love him. He would bleed for Spurs and run himself into the ground for the team and the article barely touches on this. He did that when we were near top of the league and he did it when we were 7th.
This is what we will miss.
We are missing him around the club,, his spirit was special and with one senior player in Kane checking out and one in Hugo running g down his contract....Well maye another year would have helped more than merely playing time.His injuries were far too many, granted, but when he played, he gave us a ruthless edge that we have missed and are still missing.
