    The Spurs Youth Thread - 2018/19

    There's a lot to unpack there so I'll do my best. 1) just for clarity the views I was representing were Terry's not my own. Now it may be that he's seen something in the academy system that we haven't and it may be that he's comparing the old "clean my boots" philosophy with the idea of academy...

    The Spurs Youth Thread - 2018/19

    Come on IG, you can have all the experience in the world but still not be or do what the manager needs. If Parrott started tearing it up in training with the seniors and coming off better do you really think Poch would think twice about integrating him as a back up next season? Same for any...

    The Spurs Youth Thread - 2018/19

    I just posted it because I found it interesting not because I endorsed it. I can't find the bloody video now because that would have been better. The point I understood from him (and I do think it was Terry) is that youth academies are not conveyor belts, they are places where players will...

    I agree in part. It's a problem in England for the reasons you raise but then you look at big clubs abroad that also have the ability to burn 30million on a bench warmer like Real or Barca, Bayern. They are producing youth players at exceptional rates so much so that the league is flooded with...

    The Spurs Youth Thread - 2018/19

    There was a sky sports debate interview,I think with either john Terry or Patrick Kluivert talking about youth football. It was a very interesting perspective in saying (I paraphrase) "Youth players need to show they are better than first team players, not just equal to, if they want to get...

    Player Watch Player Watch: Juan Foyth

    Two points: 1) Great prospect But Sanchez is surely ahead to replace Toby. 2) I think he needs to play DM until he's ready. Would rather see that with Davies as back up For Verts

    What the pundits are saying about us

    https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11095/11630809/liverpool-manchester-city-or-tottenham-soccer-saturday-pundits-give-title-race-verdict Read this article this morning and realised they don't mention Spurs once, not even in passing. They even changed the article title from the one in the...

    Can you imagine the entire 60,000 stadium stamping their feet and clapping to "We will rock you" That would be something

    Pochettino's greatest trick could be a revitalised Janssen for title run-in

    I find this situation very interesting. We have a player that on the one hand has struggled to compete at the level required and has been ostracised from the squad being loaned out to Turkey, played ok, but had injuries and on the other has never come out negatively against Poch or the club...

    I cannot see how they are not trying to extend his deal. It makes perfect sense for him to to be developed
