Impressed me during pre-season, would be happy to see him play a few Conference league matches this season. Might as well give the minutes to him instead of Doherty who is a known quantity (and not a very good one).

I think we will see a very different player this season.

I was really impressed by Paskotsi in his preseason appearances so far. He never looked like a young centre-back being played out of position, but rather like a natural right-back. His movement and vision in the final third was really impressive, and I'm hoping we'll get to see more of it in the Conference League this season.

The problem with spending significant money on players of Doherty's age and stature is that if they don't work out, we can't afford to just have them rot for years in the U23s, and can't sell them easily when so out of form. We pretty much have to keep playing them so that they either find form and do well for us, or at least show enough to attract some interest.

Having a stormer against Wales at CB. I think we might have found a diamond really like what I’ve seen since pre season.

Agreed. Seemed very calm, composed and intuitive with and without the ball. Really interesting year ahead for him. Could be just as you have said, an unexpected gift.

Playing as the right CB of a back 3?

Huge opportunity for him at international level to put him up against top players. Hopefully he can continue to develop at this pace

Agree
I was hoping he would make the conference league squad
Wow he's not in?? That's desperately disappointing to hear. Following the international mess I was actually half-hoping to see him against Rennes (really don't want us over-extending ourselves ahead of Chelsea). Failing that though I certainly hoped he might see action at some point during the group stage.

What a shame. Seems a wasted opportunity. To my uneducated eye Paskotsi appears as ready for first team minutes as any of our youngsters. Total class tonight by most accounts.

I like this guy, he performed really well in the pre season where he is primarliy started at RB. He is exciting , bombs down that right wing, he is fast and seems to play a fluid one touch first time pass aswell, he really shone from all the preseason games i saw. At 18 he very promising, although it seems he is moe of a CB or in back 3 from his preference either way glad he is getting the international experience cam only help enhance him as player not only via experience but also mentally. I have high hopes for him in a spurs shirt sooner rather than later.

he is not qualified as club trained so it would take a first team space to register him

He'll be club trained for the 23/24 season if we keep him on for that long. If Nuno sees him as good enough he might force his way into a first team space next season but it's not hard to argue that this season comes a little too early for him.

It turns out he won't need a first team place next season, as by the 21st September 2022 he'll have been registered for 2 years so will qualify for the B-List as an U21 player.

Whilst that's after the deadline for squad registration, players can be added to the B-List at any time "no later than 24.00CET on the day before the match in question."

Then in September 2023 he becomes club trained as you say, but remains eligible or the B-List until he turns 21.
