    You're right.... but I did read somewhere that he started out as a striker... maybe that's a part of his game that is untapped?

    :woot: You're absolutely right, good eye. He's in it quite a bit in fact. I suspect then that we brought him back after the injury for treatment, and as a result Swansea likely just waived any loan termination fee.

    Edit: I believe that was also Lamela at the end there scoring far netting with his right foot. Incredible scenes.

    I know i am probably reading to much into this but the looks of this vid Poch paired Carroll and Nabil together in training. Could be nothing of course.

    Glad he's back and consequently getting more of a chance to prove himself in front of Poch. If Poch is impressed, great; if Poch doesn't rate him, well he's had considerably more time to evaluate him and so one has to trust his judgement more. Worked out far better since he wasn't going to play for Swans anymore anyway.

    The thing which is going to scew up Carroll's evaluation and fit into the Spurs squad is the UEFA European u21 Championship which runs from 17 - 30 June - and no doubt the FA will want to get them together from i June (meaning no real time off between the end of this season and start of the tournament).

    As the FA have brought forward the start of next season to 8 August, so with all the u21 players needing a minimum of say 3 weeks rest after the tournament that means they start preseason on about 22 July (2 weeks before the season starts) whereas the pre-season for others will probably start say Monday 6 July to give a 4 week pre-season (probably the minimum required).

    So that means that Carroll (DIer, Pritchard and Kane) will all be disadvantaged (and Spurs screwed) by this a combination of tournament timing and the prats at FA not wishing to recognise the effect of startiung the season a week earliy - a decision they have said which helps England senior team the following summer.

    Think the criteria is they had to have been u21 during the start of the qualification for the tournament which he was.

    I'm looking forward to seeing him too

    You good! as you could tell from my Max avatar before, I was a big fan of the coke boys/wave. Sad news. Stacks, chinx gone and Max not coming out any time soon, French is now alone and going to lose his way

    bruh, i was the biggest stack bundles fan. Crazy how chinx was in jail when he was blowing up. Still get a little misty eyed when one of stacks songs comes on my ipod. Him and Budden had some of the best rap chemistry i've ever heard....damn shame.

    I guess on the plus side the lads will be kept fit and Pochettino can also watch their games.

    It is a bit of a shame that they won't be part of some of Pochettinos pre season drills though. And mentally they might be a bit frazzled by Feb.

    Slum Dilla likes comics. Seems like a chinese gentleman was arrested after trying to set off a bomb. One of his comic book heroes masturbated on his ipod and he got a bit of semen in his eye. The chinese gentleman had a friend named Budden who helped him make the bomb in chemistry. Seems like he might have been killed in the explosion.
