I reckon it makes us look small time. "Ooh look Eriksen is available isn't it exciting we might be able to get him. He used to be really good. We are little Brentford let's try and get someone really famous."

What's wrong with getting good younger players. Eriksen 2022 is a vastly different player from Eriksen 2017.

As someone commented, it could well become a sideshow.

Don't get me wrong, if the club think he is worth going for then great, but I just don't feel he will bring us what many fans think he will, and it just feels slightly too keen.

That’s a little insulting to the leadership team and given the due diligence we undertake before we recruit even development squad players imagine there will be zero sentiment involved.

Did you read my first line of the final paragraph?

Which is actually the COMPLETE OPPOSITE of what has happened.

He started 16 of the last 17 games of a season in which they won the title for the first time in over a decade.

As I said, he didn’t have a good start but was flying by the end of the season. If Conte was so unhappy with him why has he very publicly said the doors is always open for him at Spurs?
I think Conte has a lot of respect left for him because he acted professional, after being left to rot on the bench for 6 months apart from weird subs in the last two minutes in every other game. He eventually found a role for him but Eriksen isn't his type of player.
The open door comment was regarding trainingfacilities I reckon. Or lets hope it was 😉

Mate, I did and I know as much as you regarding likelihood of him signing.
However my point was regarding you agreeing that it might become a sideshow. If and still a big if we were to come to some agreement it would be after extensive medical tests and confidence that he could deliver benefit this season. Our owner doesn’t entertain PR exercises and while the media would obviously be interested in his progress, I doubt there will be additional interviews allowed and the focus as always at BFC will be on the team

I see the thread banner update has the same colour code as 'suggestion'.

This would be f*cking amazing if it were to happen! Although I still will be cautious and say it probably won't! He's one of my favourite players in general though (from before the Euros) and it would be phenomenal if it somehow did happen!

I don't know not what you mean, but it's late on a Saturday and your are typing in capitals so I'm out, for my own safety.
I assume it means Erikssons representatives contacted us not the other way around

If his ticker is all okay then and if this happens, I guess he'll need some sub appearances through February before making a start and then who knows.

Of he truly just wants to play football then why not sign for 18months.

What’s the current position? Coming to train? Made contact with the club? We made contact with his representatives? Negotiating a contract?

I don’t think Eriksen would put his family through the continual worry of what might happen unless his risks were on a par with anyone else playing the game.
That would suggest he is more than healthy enough to play.
Would love to see him holding a Bic and wearing the red a white stripes sometime in the coming days

If this one falls through Banana I may never forgive you ;) because I'm like a kid a Christmas.

Just adding his quality from sub appearances would have a massive impact on performances if he can reach previous levels.

Exactly, adds real strength and experience to our squad that is all ready full of quality. Also without having to pay a fee.

Would allow Ivan to get into the box and have a good chance of getting the ball back in a dangerous position.

I’m guessing it is possible they might have placed Eriksen’s device more carefully and with more planning about the risk of contact than for someone who doesn’t play a contact sport for a living.
I'd have thought it is placed in the optimum site from a medical perspective.

My tuppence worth.

I read Banana post slightly differently.

I wonder if that response is to your post implying we have actually gone to him to secure a deal. Maybe it’s the other way around.

No where did I put that box for my rose coloured…. 🤔😏

That’ll vary by person- there may be an advantage in making the operation simpler and putting it near the surface for someone for whom it doesn’t matter how protected it is. Just as I’m sure the way they’d sort a cruciate would be different for a non-athlete where the key thing is to get you back walking but not to be as robust as a sportsman.

I wouldn't worry about it making us look "small time " he will probably go to Newcastle and be their saviour

Would he really attract younger talent? Don’t we already do this sufficiently?
Actually this might be a fair point. We've already been gazumped by Monaco for Vanderson. The closer to the top we get, the tougher it becomes to get the jump on the next big things.

There's a fair argument to be had for furthering the appeal of the club with a big name signing.

Would be very exciting. The only concern would be if he came in for 6 months and took up a place in the side, preventing others from playing and developing for next year. I think we'd need a longer commitment for it to be worthwhile.

The more I think about it the more sense it makes.
PR value ✅
Adds attacking quality ✅
Inspires/role model ✅
Jensen, Bidstrup, a few others can learn from him✅

It would be nigh impossible to damage a pacemaker or defibrillator through non-life threatening thoracic trauma. After 6 months the risk of lead displacement through trauma is also negligible. The reason for his suffering an alleged cardiac arrest, presumably due to ventricular fibrillation, and exertionally provoked, will be the reason taken into consideration before medically/financially/even legally advising/allowing a return to professional sport, and only he and his medical advisors will know. There may also remain uncertainty about why it happened. If there is strong evidence for a reversible cause then there may be a chance of him playing again.

👍 Agree maybe they would not get the minutes they need. But, being around and watching a top class player will also help with development.

What if it turns out he isn’t up to it after a month?

But our owner doesn’t do PR!

If you recall when Warburton left and was manipulating the press to suggest he was the injured party, despite advice from many media savvy fans offering to tell the truth, Matthew chose not to.

He is the last person to look for ways of increasing Bees or his media profile, all he cares about is the success on and off the pitch of the club he owns and supports.

I think this is a bit of a myth tbh. Ask Marcus Forss how his development has gone when he hasn't been playing.

For those of us with limited medical knowledge - I've just spoken to my consultant heart guy and he told me Eriksen has a defibrilator NOT a pacemaker, and that it only kicks in when he's actually having a heart attack. He says they're fairly sturdy things, and if CE was his patient he wouldn't object to us signing him - the only problem would be if he chested the ball down and smashed the defibrilator at the same time he had another heart attack. Then there'd be trouble. :)

*mind you, he's an Arsenal fan and didn't say whether he'd recommend THEM playing him!

Maybe true he’s not had the chance to practice what he has learnt. But I think he must have learnt watching Ivan and Bryan.

An ICD won’t do much for a heart attack. It’s designed to shock the heart back into a normal rhythm of it detects an arrhythmia that doesn’t stop itself.

I believe CE has a subcutaneous ICD rather than a transvenous ICD. There is a good chance that it’s not even located in the chest and is under the arm. This is how a Boston Scientific S-ICD is fitted:
