Hopefully he watched the first half at least...
Assuming the story we offered a contract is correct, then he'd definitely have watched IMO. At least we did show what we're capable of and just got punished for lacking the final touch, one that he himself would contribute to improving.

So, realistically if he signs he will miss Wolves game this Saturday but be good to go (subject to fitness) at City away. We will have him potentially available for 15 games along with a returning JDS. Options would look much better in terms of an attack minded midfield.

With a little run out at Everton and maybe with a Raya

We need that threat from the middle. We saw first half last night the difference it makes pushing one of them forward.

You must be joking. JDS has been out for 9 months and has recently played 45 mins in a friendly game. He won't feature for some time yet and when he does he'll likely pick up niggles etc. He won't play a significant role for at least a couple of months.

I'm coming to the opinion that we probably need to play one of Vitaly or Norgaard. As good as they both are, I do think the midfield is a bit blunt in an attacking sense and so reliant on Baptiste, Jensen etc who play at the tip of our midfield three. We're also incredibly dependent on the Wing Backs too, and when Sergi fills in at LWB and Mads play's RWB neither add a huge attacking threat IMO.

Of course, I've been watching football for long enough to appreciate that. I believe from what I've read/heard that JDS is targeting the Arsenal game to be back involved in the first team squad, having gotten a few more B team games under his belt. My point being with the ability to 'rotate' Eriksen and JDS, taking account both are coming back from serious injury/health situations, we will have much better offensive options than we have now.

Spot on mate. We are hard working, but a bit toothless

Suspect it will be a while before he makes a start even if he signs now. We'll want to run him through a mini pre-season and we'll no doubt take the utmost precautions with that.

As if we wouldn't take care of him.
i meant more a financial side for us. Hes a big name player, they often come with big wages etc, but this is an exceptional set of circumstances and hopefully a deal that suits both parties can be arranged

Think he would be more keen to join us after the Man Utd performance than if he had watched us against Soton, Brighton and even Liverpool.

Blimey it will not be worth signing him if he needs conditioning first. On that basis he will probably get 10 games after which 2/3 of the games will just see him settling in. That 7 in total, not worth pursuing.
My bet is he is good to go.

I think and said yesterday during the first half that Jensen pretty much showed the Eriksen shaped hole we have and put to bed any question about whether he’d fit into the way we play. From a results based perspective yesterday was disappointing but if it helps to make the move happen it’ll be worth much more than the three points we would I think have without doubt got against Man U had we gone in at half time with a deserved two or three nil lead.

If he plays at his full ability for us for the last 7 games we’ll probably get at least 4 wins from them and even if we’ve lost all the 10 games before that it’ll almost certainly be enough to stay up fairly comfortably.

From his info on Twitter ‘ He’s a Portuguese insider specialised in transfers ‘ he has 44.1K followers, so probably a legit source.
Fair enough. Very interesting, but, with all the "clickbait" these days I wouldn't be surprised if he's posted that for some likes and retweets though
