Still little movement from Spurs - there are a few bits and pieces about the situation that its not fair to talk about but nothing major disappointing from an outside point of view that he is only a sub for the reserves though there may be other reasons for that

Us fans never get the full picture, obv. There may be reasons for this indecisiveness where Roles contract and opportunities are concerned. All we can go in is his consistently impressive performances. I'm certainly more non-plussed as to his lack of progress than I was with Edwards' who, whilst a mesmeric talent, was taking a little time to put it all together. Roles is lightweight but that can be worked on. The footballing intelligence and maturity he possesses is rare.

Former Spurs kid Hector Kyprianou has broken into the Cyprus U19 squad. Well done that lad. We let him go at 15 and he joined Orient. He's been doing really well for them and recently signed a 3 year pro deal whilst still only 17. That's something the O's don't usually do these days. They've got no U23 squad and basically just release everyone at the end of their scholarship unless they can jump straight into the first team match day squad. A lot of their graduates get taken on by clubs much higher up after their release because they're really good but just not quite ready for first team football. To show that kind of faith in Hector must mean that they rate him very highly.

I saw on another site that Roles is injured , that’s why he didn’t feature in the Chelsea game and was sub in the Leicester game . They also said if he can do what he did last night in 55 mins injured , can’t wait to see what he can do when he’s fully fit .

We appear to have a very effective production line at the moment. Just need to find a way to hold onto them...
I hope Dawson does his badges and comes back to us. I think he’d make a great coach. It’s a shame pochettino has such a set support group. I think he should leave 1 space for a fresh face. Fergie used to rotate his number 2 every few years freshened it up. I know poch won’t ditch Perez but he could find a new space.
