    Yeah looked like he threw up as well. Just a really bad situation. Hope he recovers quickly...putting him back on the field is pretty messed up.

    Yeah. That is ridiculous. The same team that allowed Lloris to play some years ago.

    Head injuries are really something that the sport needs to address. If you have an audible account one of the originals for this month is A Beautiful Brain which looks at CTE and focuses significantly on the story of West Brom legend Jeff Astle. It's really well done.

    Credit to Lahoz/4th official for doubting Spurs' decision to bring him back on

    Who's on Spurs' bench? Is Lamela fit?

    The bench right now is Dier, Walker-Peters, Foyth, Gazzaniga, Davies, and Skipp.

    Aren't a couple of them fighting/coming back from injuries as well?

    Spurs are looking dangerous on basically every FK inside of Ajax's half. Almost all of them have resulted in completely free headers.

    Yep...Lucas' speed is giving them a bit of trouble also.

    Ajax should come out hard in the 2nd and really push for that 2nd goal.

    At least Sissoko isn’t tentative about everything. Changed things up a bit.

    Spurs got back into the game a bit after Sissoko's sub

    Mistake number two from Sanchez.

    Strangely enough Spurs have created more than Ajax. Even if they have been dominated for most of the game.

    Spurs have been better since Vertonghen went off TBH. New shape is much more suited to how they're playing.

    That's hardly true. I am currently recovering from my third concussion. All the symptoms happened right away.

    It's well documented that many times the symptoms take some time before arriving.

    Next goal will completely change the tie.

    Okay, hence the word sometimes.

    Edit: Sorry, I should have mentioned this at first blush. Hope you get well soon, concussions seem to be annoying to have to deal with

    Symptoms sometimes do take time to appear, but in this case he clearly to a heavy blow to the head and was visibly dazed on the field.

    There's a reason the NHL has the quiet room and the NFL has the concussion tent, it's to give those symptoms time to appear.

    I'm not really sure what the solution is since you can't just change the player out for a couple minutes/plays to do a longer review, but something does need to be done because there's currently too much pressure for players to hide small symptoms and stay on the pitch.

    It's most likely people don't even realize they have a concussion. When I had my first one I didn't realize I had one until someone pointed it out the next day telling me to go to the hospital. I had a headache immediately but didn't think much of it, took an advil and tried to sleep it off. All 3 concussions had massive headaches.

    No matter what, a professional team should never take chances with their players. I know all too well the problems concussions can cause. This third one I am recovering from is taking forever to heal. It'.s horrible and my memory is ****ed.

    It should be a mandatory subbing off.
