    Spurs Youth - 2019/20

    Jacques was very highly rated between U14-16, I heard him compared to Patrick Vieira by serious football people who are not prone to hyperbole. Unfortunately, as you say, injuries really curtailed his development and especially his opportunities. Every time you thought he was going to kick on...

    Bowlox! 2-2.

    Some decent crossing from Tracey as well.

    Spurs Youth - 2019/20

    Got to be fair, he gets a ton of criticism, even ridicule at times, but Tracey has been fairly decent tonight. Sure, his close control and passing isn't the best but he's used his pace and power to give the Derby left back a torrid time and has helped nullify Derby's left flank.

    We're 2-0 up but we've not had to do much. Derby are all over the place.

    Want to offer an update. Previously I stated D'Jean Spencer had dropped out of the game but I've discovered that he's playing for Bromley U23's this season. I have no idea if he's been there for long. Edit: He is in fact new to Bromley this season. No idea where he's been for the last two years.

    He turns 20 later this month so I don't think leaving us quite fast tracked his development as much as he would have hoped. He may not have been on the bench for us at this age but he would have been training with better players, better coaches, better facilities and he would have been up...

    He is. We're probably just trying to develop different areas of his game. That's also why we're probably playing Skinner in midfield, in order to help his passing game.

    Really hoping Etete has a good night. I really like him. It is very hard to come by a player of his size and build with his touch and finishing.

    I can't fathom why Etete can't get a game at this level.

    Looks delighted. :whistle:

    As much as I love White I do worry that he's one of those neither one thing nor t'other midfielders that we're so good at producing. Not quite a defensive midfielder, not quite a box to box player and not quite an attacking midfielder. He's a super little player but he's not super quick, super...

    Nah, Spencer dropped out of the game. It was Kane Thompson-Sommers who went to Birmingham, he's still there as far as I'm aware playing for their U23's.

    Carroll was peripheral at U18 level . He only broke into the side in the final few months of his scholarship and interestingly it was as a left back where he had the time and space to show off his passing.

    Lol, I finished laying out my two best line-ups only to realise there was loads of players from over a decade ago. That was both embarrassing and extremely traumatising. My first youth game was 17 years ago. Damn, I'm getting old.

    Shame there's no mention of Tanganga. Hopefully he'll be on the bench.

    Its a little disturbing. That's the second ex-Spurs player who developed a gambling/drinking problem while away on loan. (The other being Steven Caulker). I wonder if there are any others we don't know about. Please DO NOT speculate!

    I hated pretty much every second of that match. We were brutal and I've got to pin that on Mourinho. We were slamming into a red wall time and time again, no finesse, no clever movement, no drawing them out or pulling them around. Just one dimensional nonsense over and over again. Absolutely...
