The Fighting Cock
How is it going for Etete? Not just this game, but in general.
I (unfairly) assumed he was being brought in as fodder to allow Parrott to step up to the Under-23s/first team squad. I've only seen him bits of him really from highlights but from that and from reading reports, he obviously has a decent amount of ability. With a lad as big and powerful as him at such a young age it's sometimes quite difficult to tell how much of the quality he's showing is just because he can physically bully those around him - we should know more once he's played a bit more Under-23 football.


Marsh v Roles next weekend if they both play.

Can't find anywhere whether Shashua played. They lost 2-0 to Sporting Gijon II but remain top of the table.

Not good for Kyle, Luke and Jack. Not sure what can be done if they just aren't getting games.

Good performance simply cruised to a 3-0 lead, Parrott was different class for 45 minutes, Pochettino junior looked a fine player certainly gets his head up, assist and a goal from him.

Second half changes and a drop in intensity allowed Wolves a couple of consolation goals still several youngsters doing their chances no harm ...

Morgan Gibbs-White the 'star' 20 year old for Wolves went of injured early, shame wanted to see him play.

Will Parrott get 45 minutes against Norwich? Mourinho will I'm sure start with our strongest eleven but should things have gone very well, or indeed very badly, a second half from Troy must be a real possibility.
Just to add some context, Wolves are even worse than us - they now have no wins in 13, have lost their last 6 and are bottom of the table.
I thought they looked decidedly average except Gibb-white.

These are great games to go to if you get a chance , so close to the players and you can hear everything the coaches say. Fascinating listening to them obsess with shape .

Parrott MOTM.
Ireland international Troy Parrott (18) came off the bench to play against Wolves’ first team at the weekend. On Monday evening the Dubliner started against their under 23’s. Parrott really was the difference between the two sides last night and his sheer presence on the pitch helped to galvanise the team. Parrott played a part in all three of our goals and his off the ball movement, work rate, aggression and decision making was top class. Despite only playing 45 minutes, Parrott influence on the game was massive.

Couple of extra points :
- Hinds played as LB again, but did fine - predominantly a RB had also played DM for u21's
- Mukendi's first u21 match for possibly over a year, the versatile forward out with a bad injury, pretty much forgotten about him, but back with a goal.
- Possibly Poch junior's best ever match for Spurs youth ?
