Well his agent did say a couple of weeks ago that they expected CE would be paticipating in grouptraining with a new club BEFORE the end of January. Maybe they where being a bit optimistic I don't know. But if true, he is probably going to sign with somone this week - which would explain the 'Eriksen PL comeback by the end of the week' story from the weekend.

Interesting article by James Gheerbrant in The Times:


Here’s how we compare in his opinion (he watches us regularly) vs. three others allegedly in the frame: Brighton, Newcastle and Wolves.

How would he fit at Brentford?
Brentford have offered Eriksen a six-month contract, and one can certainly see what he could add to Thomas Frank’s team. Brentford are a strong, organised, well-coached side but they lack guile and imagination — from open play, at least. Their average of 6.05 open-play chances created per game is the second-lowest in the league, and with the exception of Mathias Jensen, the midfield offers industry but scant creativity. Signing Eriksen would redress this and Brentford could offer him a platform not dissimilar to the one he enjoyed under Conte — they already set up in a 3-5-2 and Eriksen would play alongside two much more diligent midfielders, probably Christian Norgaard and Vitaly Janelt. Brentford are one of the most innovative and effective teams in the league at set pieces, and one could certainly see Eriksen’s delivery adding dead-ball value: between the start of the 2015-16 season and his departure, no player in the Premier League created more chances from set plays than Eriksen. Culturally, he would fit in well in a squad which has several Danish players, including Norgaard and Jensen. The question is whether Brentford could accommodate Eriksen in the defensive phase. They are one of the more active pressing teams in the league, allowing 12.3 passes per defensive action. But Eriksen’s quality in attack makes him a gamble worth taking.

Been following CE since his Ajax times, and I really think Brentford have a good fair chance of getting him here. Been following the media here in Denmark regarding the rumors on CEs next destination. The following teams have been mentioned:

PL:
- Brentford
- Leicester
- West Ham
- Arsenal
- Tottenham
- Crystal palace
- Aston Villa
- Newcastle

Championship:
- Fulham

Other clubs:
- PSV

And of cause there might be others clubs in the pool, that we don't know of.

Compiling all the pros & cons for each of the teams I really feel Brentford have a 50% of this happening, personally I would love to see him in Brentford.
Also I think this will be a great opportunity for Jensen to pick up some trades from the maestro albeit he may loose some playing time, but it would definitely give him a "fast-lane" opportunity to develop as a player.

Hopes from DK & GL with the tonight's game!

I think the Jensen synergy is interesting as MJ often comes on in Eriksen’s place for Denmark (and indeed did in that game v Finland at the Euros). So playing and training together daily between now and the WC may well appeal to both, improve both players’ WC selection chances and improve MJ as a player for us.

One of the things Eriksen did "pick-up" on in Contes Inter system, was in the defensive phase. He definitely added to that trade from his Inter adventure.

Hard to disagree with most of it except the Conte comment. If TF is planning on using him exactly like Conte did then it would be a waste (of player and money). He sat extremely deep - at times even deeper than their true dm Brozovic and he was mostly involved from his own half - setting up transition play. I guess it worked at Inter but he needs to be further forward imo. As an atticking cm

He definitely learned how to work in the defensive unit. But he did a lot of defensive work and pressing under Poch aswell. Just further forward or out wide. It will never be his strongest trade though 😅

If was in any box then it would be Phil GIles's, and it would be CE's agent. Keep an eye out and get the pics on here afterwards :cool:
I'll take a look...

Not sure I agree with that. I think he was very good (and under rated) at Spurs for his defensive work. Pochettino did not pick players that didn't work hard to win the ball back.

Agree with this. My spurs supporting mate says he was the hardest-working creative player he's ever seen.

I agree with you - Let me try and re-phrase, more grit/aggression & tackling was added to his defensive work, and the defensive part of his playing role under Conte was bigger than the defensive duties he had under Porch.

Is this rumour close to real? Didn't really take this original suggestion post much serious tbh : ) But recent 2 days the rumour has been mentioned everywhere.

In the meantime we have Newcastle must beat Brentford to Christian Eriksen signing - opinion

If he really want World Cup like he said, he should consider nowhere but Brentford for: minutes, danish coach, danish players.

It won't be ha. He will consider his options (the correct thing to do for him) and will make a decision when the time is right.

As far as we know, we are the only club to make an actual offer, which currently puts us in the lead...

We are based frustratingly close to LHR. If we were somewhere miles from a massive airport you could look for the tell tale signs of a private jet going from say, Odense to Leeds / Newcastle / wherever, but given the proximity of Jersey Road to LHR, my understanding is that our signings as and when they arrive from foreign shores normally come in commercial...

Personally believe this to be a long shot myself, but this private 'luxury-charter' aircraft has just arrived at Biggin Hill, route unlisted. The company appears to be registered in Germany

A plane arriving a BH from no-one knows where isn't useful information.

It will be 1 of dozens landing every day. You'd better off looking at Luton, but too many into there too.
