Mickey Mouse league decision making, based on that article's reported timeline.

Whoever is doing these tests are doing a really shit job with false positives.

Hardly something you can avoid. The timing is a bit questionable, though - how do you not get a result earlier than with an hour to go (lineups were announced before game was cancelled).

Yeah, think we essentially agree. Don't think he should or does get benched forever based on yesterday, but I wouldn't rush to start him over Tarek any time soon either.

An example re: the conversation earlier in the thread about teams not taking full advantage of the added subs. North London Derby is in the 78th minute and there has been a total of 1 sub between both sides. Even crazier, there are 6 players on yellows.

Top 5 players on the Spurs bench (Ndombele, Lamela, Sessegnon, Bergwijn, Fernandes) valued at ~$140M by Transfermarkt.

3 subs ended up on the pitch, in 82, 84 and added time. Spurs play again on Wednesday.

Parker, playing at the level he did last season (which was an anomaly for him), over the course of a season, is still likely better than Tarek or any other option we have currently. If that is his floor and we know what his ceiling is, I bet on him returning to prior form (because he is only 27 and would not expect significant decline yet) because that gives us the best chance of fielding the best possible iteration of our team.

Agree on the long term outlook, but starting him after last night's performance is quite literally rewarding bad play.

He's not a game changing player who gets to play himself into shape in competitive games, so he needs to prove he's back in training and off the bench unless forced into action (presumably like last night, hopefully with a different outcome).

Also not sure Tarek is necessarily worse, haven't seen anything terrible from him in his time here.
