With all the talk about CBs one CB who has gone down in the pecking that we should not yet give up on is BLF who is one of the best footballing CBs we have and it is a good thing that he is starting to play a lot better of late, let's hope he can bulk up a lot because it is what is slowing him down right now and not the lack of ability.
As far as I'm concerned I'd loan Binks out as he is physically ready, as well as Eyoma who should've been loaned out ages ago. Let Walcott and BLF play for the u23s. Loan out or move on Dinzeyi. And hopefully not waste Tanganga in the first team.

We'd get a better idea of where we're at with Binks and Eyoma after a season roughing it and see if they need another loan or not. They can't all make it that's just a fact, and if Mourinho does continue down the path with Tanganga as good as they all are, even if others were top quality I'd be surprised if he brought through another we're not Chelsea.

But it means we have options and then BLF can go on loan next year.

Are the Maghomas one huge family or is it more of a coincidence that we've had so many of that name?

It would be interesting to know how many we've had, as it seems like we've had a Maghoma in our academy for ever!

Dinzeyi Has to be moved on along with a load of other players,we could send Binks to Gillingham it would be perfect for him because he has links with Gillingham.

As below they are a large family but I don't believe the one you referred to is related to them. Just a coincidence. The spelling is different

Good luck to Paris.

Going to be fun watching his development at Brentford. They’re a very fun Championship side to follow as they have a very moneyball esque style of running the club. Often buying relative unknowns and then selling them on for sizeable profits a year or two later.

Started following them ever since Pritchard went there.

Best of luck to Paris, he never looked like he was gonna make it here and I'm happy he is being proactive with his career.

His brother Jaques is another who never got a look in at Spurs but who has gone onto a very decent Championship career, so he knows there’s life after the Lane.

He has made a good career for himself.
He was on the brink of getting a chance with first team at Spurs under Martin Jol but suffered a long term injury and by the time he'd recovered, the manager was gone as was his chance.

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 he'd tear something, break something or rupture something. In the end he was never going to be Patrick Vieira because Very was 6ft+ where as Jacques maxed out at 5'7-5'8 and the injuries robbed him of a lot of his pace so he couldn't maraud up and down like he used to. When I think of how many of our youngsters had really promising careers cut short by injury it really makes me sad. Its a very precarious industry to be involved in.
