Pointless loan considering he is stuck behind two other loanees from other prem. teams.

I'd look to get him back here and begin/look to integrate him.

So much for Danny Mills and his shite comments when it was announced we'd be signing him. Tosser.

This isn't the kind of news that encourages you that it was the right thing to do to sign him in the first place. Not even making the matchday squad for his hometown club who know exactly he's about as a player doesn't inspire confidence that he'll eventually reach a level that could see him challenge for a place at Spurs. Hope there's some kind of one-off circumstance (e.g. injury/fitness issue etc) that would explain this.

18 years olds that play in the prem are as rare as hen teeth. We wont see this boy for 3-4 years. We probably won't see Sessegnon regularly for 2-3.

Not sure how people can get excited about watching unproven kids, these two boys are future investments, nothing more.

Re: Sessegnon, is that 2 or 3 weeks, months or (lol) years?

It will be 2-3 years. He wasn't a guaranteed regular starter in a d0gshit Fulham side because he, like most 18 year olds can't hack the premier league in this day and age. He will be lucky to get the nod in the league cup with the size of our squad unless we have significant injuries.

Have you seen his premier league highlights reel? No, because he didn't have any....

You seem to know a lot about it. How many starts did under 19's make in the Premier league last year?
Fuck knows, pal - how many 17 year olds have won player of the season in the Championship? Your post was typed-up dog-shit, hence its reception.

Ok, so you, and others all have an opinion, but no one actually has a fucking clue.

11 players under 19 started PL games last season. 5 of them started only 1 game, suggesting emergency. Only 2 started more than 5 games, Sessegnon being one of them obviously.

So it wasn't shit at all was it. It makes perfect sense because as I said, unless they are physically abnormal with Rooneys power , or Owens pace, you just don't see them impact the premier league. It is on another level physically.

It was a feat for him to win that. He will be a player for sure. But one of the best 10 teams in Europe and the Championship could not be further apart. He isn't ready for us. Everyone here will see that for themselves over the next few months.

Can we recall Clarke if Leeds agree
Leeds main problem is GK and def. if we could loan them someone more suitable they might jump at the chance. However it’s early days and perhaps we should wait and see first.

"Jack Clarke - Lively first 5 minutes, setting up a chance and having one himself early on. Linked up well with Alioski a few times in the opening 15 minutes. Wonderful left-footed through ball to find Jordan Stevens in the build up to the second goal, a moment of real quality. Looked more dangerous in the second half than the first - seemed to enjoy being predominantly on the right wing more than he did being mostly on the left. Leeds didn’t use him enough following the second goal. 7/10"

I was speaking to my Leeds mate again about him not being on the bench and he told me it’s not because he’s out of favour or anything it’s because you can only have 6 loan players in the matchday squad or something g. Their back up keeper is a loan player so they have to have him, then they have some Brighton CB on loan and they’ve got issues in defence so they need him. Then they have that big signing from wolves but he’s apparently initially on a loan. Then named a couple of other loan players they’ve got who play in positions that they are more in need of so when you consider Clarke, who’s another loan player, they just can’t accommodate him at present.

I obviously have no idea how accurate any of this is but he’s pretty knowledgable in general especially with Leeds (as you’d expect) so I’ve no reason to doubt him.

Not our problem how many loanees they have - Jack needs to play whenever hes fit and that should have been a condition of the loan.

Tottenham need to remind Leeds that Clarke needs to be playing week in week out and gaining experience. If they refuse to play him recall and loan him to one of their competitors for promotion with agreement he will play.
