Wow so impressed with this guy in the cup game vs spammers. What a way to make an impression!
He looks like heís bulking up similar to when bale turned from a puny player to a tank! I honestly think this kid could be a replacement for jan/Toby

Early days obviously but he had a cracking game. Definitely his best performance in a spurs shirt by far….. but I think we need to see more of him before we can make a proper assessment …… he’s looked pretty timid if previous games IMO but looks like he’s putting in the work behind the scenes. Hopefully a star in the making!

Felt sorry for him today. To go from MOTM hero on Wednesday to giving away 2 pens today... Today's 2nd half showed his inexperience after a solid first 45 but he had NO protection from midfield, and Tripps hung him out to dry. Hope he comes out of it stronger and driven to do better in the next match!

Our injuries are becoming problematic. Actually not a bad time for an international break - gives a chance for some of Dele, Dier, Wanyama & etc. to shake knocks. I'm also glad Sonny is being given this one off - if only Eriksen, Kane & etc were too!

Wouldn't be surprised if that's why Alli wasn't in the squad so he could have time to fully recover.

Felt for him as well but also not a bad thing when young players sometimes think they should be playing. It's a bit of an eye opener for him and other young players to realise it's a big step up and we should appreciate how well Sanchez has done so far and forgive him when it catches up with him sometimes.

This is a tough league

It was precautionary. Poch feels we /England overplayed him when he came back before and that's why he's easing him back slowly.

Poch's hit rate with young defenders is unparalleled. If he was the same with attacking talent we'd have trophies already.

This kid should play alongside Ndombele in central midfield.

No, I’ve just found out Foyth uses and pays for Wyscout, So he can study his opposition attackers, and plan around that. That’s an incredibly mature thing for a player his age to be doing.

He’s a Pochettino son figure, doubt he’s going anywhere

I can see a defensive midfielder in him, something just doesn’t feel right about right back, and for me centre back.

He’s definitely a poch favourite, I haven’t seen anything special myself yet bar confidence in himself.


Dier? Supposedly plagued with health issues this year. He’s not homegrown, costs us foreign register space, if we could try to sell him to Woodward as and alternative to Rice to finish his “image of class of 92” spending project, I’d love to con him of £40m

I mean he had back to back motm performances for us and Argentina a while ago, which for a young lad with barely 20 senior senior games under his belt at the time was quite impressive imo. He's also had nightmare games... to me if half his appearances are close to motm and half of them he gets sent off/gives away a pen or has an absolute mare there's enough raw materials to turn him into a very good player that will probably end up somewhere in the middle of those two extremes.

He could still be Vlad Chiriches in disguise but IMO he's got a good shot of making it if he and Poch work hard on his weaknesses.

I agree, I mean heís definitely at the right club and under the right manager if he is going to excel.

Iím praying heís not a chiriches too

Foyth has good feet and a nice touch. He got targeted for an immediate squeeze by our opponents last season, which made him look slow and a little laid back.

Quite often a young would be CB starts life playing as a FB even if they don't look like a natural in terms of build and physique.

The lad needs games, but that's not easy at his age in a team with top 4 aspirations.

True Carragher was often out there a lot.

Heís got more ability than carragher so letís hope he matures like a fine wine.

Vertonghen and I believe Toby were both blooded at FB. But that's an Ajax thing and in Verts case international abundance of CB's for Belgium.


Vedran Corluka was a CB, but he played FB so well that he played there most of the time. It stands to reason that a CB of tender age gets the nod at FB during an injury crisis.

Yep, definitely re Toby.

Not sure if you knew this, but originally before fullback and center back, Jan was a midfielder!

It makes sense why sometimes when he gets the ball he longs to get forward and involved
