He was very good last season where he got his breakthrough, going from sub to starter under Jol and creating a lot of buzz.
Unfortunately he failed to recreate this form in the first part of this season which saw him being benched quite often, and there was a lot of talk here in Denmark about his underachieving fall.
But this has all changed since De Boer replaced Jol. Eriksen's been excellent the last couple months by all accounts, which he himself credits getting to play in his favourite "number 10" role as well as De Boer's style being more like the one they practise in the youth teams where as Jol's style was more English.
Like I said before the WC in this thread: He's the most exciting player we've had probably since the Laudrups. Or at least the most technical gifted. We don't develop a lot of players like that here, so he's been very highly rated for a while now.
