Tottenham U21’s make it two from two.

Posted on August 19, 2013 by Tony

The Tottenham U21 team took on Manchester City this afternoon and pretty much dominated proceedings finishing 6-3 winners on the day. Sandro continued his recovery from injury and took his place in the team as an overage player, also involved in a strong lineup was Harry Kane who scored a hat-trick, he really is developing well and is beginning to become more and more adept in front of goal, it is still hard to believe that he only turned 20yrs of age last month, he is a big strong player, fairly quick, aggressive and technically sound. Tim Sherwood has always believed that he might develop into something special and that day might now be a little closer than we think.

Tom Carroll also lined up in central midfield and opened the scoring from just outside the box, not dis-similar to his goal for the England U21 team recently, he followed that up with a couple of assists and his all round game is now continuing to improve. Andros Townsend got a run out as did Falque, another of the goalscorers, who has become a little forgotten in the scheme of things but is still a very capable player. Tottenham wrapped up the win with the final goal of the game from Shaquile Coulthirst.

Tottenham won both U21 leagues that they were involved in last season at a canter but still lost the trophy in the final of the knockout competition to Manchester United, they led 2-0 at halftime but were undone by a tremendous United fightback, unfortunately they were forced to play the final at Old Trafford, wonderful experience for the players but maybe if it had been at a nuetral venue as it should have been that fightback might not have happened. It is water under the bridge now but once again Tottenham are well on their way and with many of the players still available from last season.
