    Every positive result we get makes our loss in Cyprus look worse and worse!

    We should be strolling this group now, but the loss to APOEL (who lost 10-0 to the team we just beat :ROFLMAO:) means we still have work to do.

    Real Madrid 10-0 APOEL
    APOEL 1-0 Spurs

    Spurs 3-2 Real Madrid

    :ROFLMAO:

    Hard to say, they're different. Winks came alive by getting on the ball and progressing the play, Skipp is obviously a lot more anchored and gets things started. I'd say for seasoned watchers who know what they're looking for that they're both at about the same level at the same age. Where Winks was ahead was in his maturity, he was so professional and focused from day one. Skipp can show his age at times by losing concentration or being a touch inconsistent. Right now though you'd be mad putting money on him not making it. He looks custom made.

    Agree him and Lyons Foster great prospects as they are both so young. But without doubt Tanganga will make it.

    Let's face it, the first team are going to win tonight. Look at the facts:

    Youth team beat Dortmund at home. First team beat Dortmund at home.

    Youth team [REDACTED] Apoel away. First team beat Apoel away.

    Youth team draw away to Real Madrid. First team draw away to Real Madrid.

    Youth team beat Real Madrid at home. Therefore tonight, in a flawless theory with no redacted logic-holes, the first team will beat Real Madrid at home.

    Skipp seems to have everything.watching the u17s world cup it seems staggering that he was over looked.looks a better prospect to me than TOB.

    Skipp a beast. slightly concerned about the no 3 did not seem to have much defensive instinct. Real Madrid obviously a well oiled machine did well to roll up our sleeves and battle for a win. Edwards obviously a Rolls Royce of a player. We may have to be patient owing to a lack of physicality but it could be well worth the wait.

    What I took from that game.
    Eyoma-solid if not spectacular
    Tanganga-Absolute beast my current fav youth virtually ready for carabo cup etc
    Lyons-silky smooth a bit Rio like
    Bennets - not a full back imo,looks much better going forward
    Skipp-not quite As Convinced as some on here but definitely a prospect
    Marsh-not sure what he does
    Shash- tricky little player grows on me by the game
    Edwards-moments Of Magic.Not sure why he plays on right.Fir me he’s a straight up no 10
    Roles- yeah not bad
    Sterling-Really Not sure tbh,just can’t see him making it with us.

    Although Edwards flits in and out of a game.He is capable of magic therefore I’d rather him on bench than Nkoudou for sure.

    How does youth competition work for last 16. Presume it’s independent draw from main competition?

    Think so yes. There's also an extra step in the Youth League though. If you finish top of your group you go straight through to the last 16. If you finish 2nd you play against a team who qualified via the Champions route in the "Play-Off round" before getting to the last 16.

    That play-off will be a one-legged game, and we would be away were we to play in that round, so winning the group is pretty key.

    Is Scotty coaching this team, or maybe just involved in some ways? Thought he's with our U-18?

    Agreed while I thought Bennetts wasn't terrible, he was defensively our weakest link. Thought postionally he was fine, just defensive intensity, concentration and instincts were lacking at times. If he sharpens that area of his game he could be a top Left back, just like how Rose has turned into one.

    he's basically the apprentice, mcdermott's the head coach.

    I think U19/18 is more or less same team.Seemed like he was in charge today.

    When the camera panned to Raul I didn't recognise him. Been a while since I heard of him.

    What a player he was though. Made lobs over the keeper an art.

    I'll take that epic waste of time and raise you 'watching both via updates on Spurs community in an effort to bring back the glory of the watching on teletext years'

    Wondrous days indeed
