England manager Roy Hodgson has branded Tottenham midfielder Tom Carroll as “an outstanding footballer”.

But then we knew that didn’t we. Hodgson only had a short time working with the U21’s before he handed the reins over to Gareth Southgate but he quickly became aware of the quality that Tom Carroll possesses, he is a player already handed playing time in the first team with Harry Redknapp almost 2 years ago when he made several appearances in the cups and in Europe, AVB was also sufficiently impressed to pitch him into the Premiership with seven appearances with a further seven again in the cups and in European competition.

As was the case with the two Kyles, Walker and Naughton, Steven Caulker and Andros Townsend, Tom Carroll has gone on loan for the season, a little earlier than he has become used to, with a switch across town to the Championship with QPR and Harry Redknapp. Redknapp knows the player well and we expect that he will return to the fray in a years time with considerable experience under his belt and hardened to playing football on a more regular basis.

Roy Hodgson only used Carroll as an example to show how wrong clubs can be when overlooking small lightweight midfielders, most prefer strength and power and so overlook that type of player, of course Tottenham are well used to the benefits of small but highly skilled midfielders after the amazing success of Luka Modric, as well as Carroll much is also expected of Alex Pritchard currently doing his stuff at Swindon and also in the England U21 setup.

I doubt there is a single Tottenham supporter who has ever doubted the ability of Tom Carroll or doubted that we shall one day see him orchestrating the Tottenham midfield.

  1. I would have preferred him to go on loan to a Premier League club but Redknapp knows how to handle him well enough.

      I think it was all about lots of playing time and Harry is true to his word on that as with Townsend last season. Kane didn’t get much of a look in at Norwich after his injury and Millwall are the other good loaners. I wouldn’t be surprised that with a full season he will voted into the championship team of the season.
