    They recognised his ability, same with Inglethorpe and Cochrane they will look for bigger opportunities. It's why we've produced such high quality players, coaches worthy of being poached.

    Right on cue it appears as though Bennetts, has been called up alongside Tanganga now for the u19s revised squad. He's deserved it tbf.

    I haven't been through the whole player thread yet but speaking of the Barca player. Are ours fans getting excited about seeing a highly rated yet untested Barca youth product, who left as he didn't see a route to their first team, join our club and respecting that he isn't chasing money but...

    Mathurin did look good, never seen him much before, always was more impressed by Williams on the other wing but Mathurin does look quite slick. The shame about Forson here is that he is a lot more technical ability than he displayed in the games shown. He was very much, get the ball get to the...

    If this came from LWR I'd believe it more, but seems like he is just reporting what the Sport are saying, which I don't have much faith in

    I can see that a little. I think he is more of a deep lying playmaker, whenever I see him he is always picking out passes, but he is a decent little dribbler to with a bit of skill. Definitely think he is a talented little player, one of the many I imagine England will be looking at and calling...

    Haysman no.8 and Hackett no.6. Just edited my previous post with the names which may help

    No. But I don't see him as a Danny Rose, I see him as a very steady LB who does everything to a good standard going forward and back. However, like @Spurzinho I see him as becoming more of a LCB. Where I differ to Spurzinho though is I probably rate him slightly higher. At this point if I am a...

    Based off the pics and the games watched I don't think that is the squad but more the players we have that could have qualified for the tournament, as there are couple of good players in there I was looking out for but couldn't see @topper He is their captain I'll watch the 2nd game in a bit...

    Our u14s competed in the Mayor of Brno Cup (or Primator Cup, I think) I believe in Czech Republic. And beat Bayern Munich in the final on penalties. Info here with some vids I'll try and get round to watching tomorrow. Dane Scarlett was top scorer Another victory for this age group...

    Surely you're going to expect the very people that have a massive interest in our youth to discuss or share their concerns when those players leaving. It's quite a big thing. It's hardly those people stirring anything. Players leave then people either say they're annoyed that we're losing them...

    Enoch Asante has signed for next year. Apparently finished the season with 41 goals. If that's all for Spurs, very impressive

    I agree with this 100% and I think finance is the only reason academy players aren't played for one reason or another. It's what I, and I'm sure others have been saying. If we pay 30m for a player, regardless if a kid is doing better than him in training, we will want a return on that...

    Partially that and the development opportunities they can still offer. RLC has made the World Cup squad by getting a PL loan. Abraham and Ake also had PL loans. They have links to Vitesse Mount is proving himself better than Kluivert and Odegaard there. Traore was at Ajax. Christensen had the...

    Marsh was more than promising in u16s and his first year. Excllebt control, calm tenacious aggressive. As the years went on and he was also moved about it a bit all that seemed to show was the aggression. Became a bit Mark Nobly. Just seemed to get into a big challenge per game then square up...
