Bizarrely we've offered an extension to Harrison. Marsh and Tanganga have also been offered fresh terms.

With the release of the Premier League retained list we can start to round up the ex-Spur news. I was waiting, in particular for the Watford and Wolves lists. Watford have offered an extension to midfieler joy Mukena (so extremely well done to him) but they have sold left winger Dion Perreira to MLS side Atlanta United. Wolves released centre half Ben Goodliffe but have retained Bennie Ashley-Seal.

Ex-Spur news: Right back Louis Ramsey who signed for Leicester last summer has been let go. He left us an U16 and joined Norwich. He spent a season on loan at Woking before getting released and joining Leicester along with striker Ryan Loft who will be staying with Leicester for another year.

Will they make Some sort of announcement that Skipp is in senior squad if he is or will just be on the website when it’s updated or we have to wait to spot him in white socks.

Absolutely speechless that we've offered Marsh and Harrison new deals. What am I missing here? What perceived value are we holding on for? This stinks of a lambrini version of the Ogilvie disgrace. Fuming.

A lot of it is mental. Games that really mean something to the other players in the squad. Being in front of fairly large crowds week in week out. Different coaching methods etc...
Without wanting to sound like someone who thinks he knows more than he actually does I genuinely believe that a league 1 loan would not really benefit Roles and that a higher standard of football in the mid to lower level championship would more suit his style. Oxford United in league 1 are my second team if you like as they are local and some of the football I have seen there from both the home and away teams is dire- particularly since Appleton left.

Wouldn't mind see him loaned abroad.

Jack's ceiling is far higher in my opinion. CCV benefited from his physical advantage and his real level has been found. Jack is the opposite story as he's physically maturing now and his skill set is shining through.
I still think CCV could end up I th PL in a few years. Hut Roles has a lot if technical ability and like you say no real physical ability which kept him back. I'll be honest not as excited about this as others as it will invariably come to nothing but hopefully he'll go in.loan and prove himself to another club

Seems Ccv got left out of USA gold cup squad. Still think he will end up a solid pro in bottom half of PL or championship. I definitely think of him as older than 21 which is nothing for a CB.

I think we keep some players just to make up the numbers as we have uefa YL again plus the u 23 games. Have we still got Shilow Tracy

Lily white Rose has put out a list of our under 23’s. There are 30 players. Presumably a bit of trimming to come there.

Unnecessary mate. Shows a lot of commitment to bring us a lot of information we then use to form.our opinions. If it was adult football we'd be calling him a proper fan.
Getting a Megabus to Glasgow to watch Cyprus to see Antony Georgiou is bat shit crazy behaviour.

No surprise. The US left off quite a bit of their better players from this squad/sent them to the U20’s in favor of washed up scrubs and meh mls guys. CCV’s just one of the many glaring omissions.

Nice finishes. That ball at 2:18 was class from another lad.
Will Patching. Ex-City and England U17. No doubt about his talent, just missed basically two full years of football through injury.
