It seems that everything in the life of a Spurs fan is doom and gloom, however stupid that appears to me, but last night, I feel we had something to feel really positive about.
A Spurs XI game against League 2 side Southend (Who finished 4th last season), might not be everyones idea of good times for Tottenham, but its crushing 6-0 victory with a very young and inexperienced side, bodes well for the future of our club, even in accepting that only a few of these players will ever become Premiership regulars. It at least offers the hope that with vision and continued growth we are heading in the right direction.
The team on the night was, Ryan (Priestley, 82); Smith, Ekong (Stewart, 70), Hall, Rose; Carroll (Pritchard, 70), Mason; Falque (Gomelt, 74), Kane, Townsend; Coulibaly (Obika, 61), with the goals coming from Kane (3), Coulibaly, Townsend and Obika. Lets not forget that Townsend, Carroll, Smith and Kane have all played some part in the first teams pre season, whilst Danny Rose has impressed for team GB in the Olympics.
It is so easy to get carried away with youth players and any individual result, but if we look closely at what we have in this era alone, we have plenty to get excited about, just as long as these players are given a chance. Add the likes of Walker, Caulker, Livermore and several others, and perhaps consider that we haven't mentioned Fredericks (just loaned to Brentford), Parrett, Luongo (on loan at Ipswich), Jordan Archer and Bostock, who has impressed this pre season, and you have to feel good this morning.
To further excite, we see Sandro representing Brazil in the final of the Olympic football today against a Mexico side that sadly wont have Giovani dos Santos in their side due to injury, but both have had fantastic tournaments and in the case of Gio, some are speculating he may now even earn a contract extension, such has been the impression he has made on AVB.
Perhaps in our comments to this article, we can all have a feel good factor and big up these young stars in the making and for once, instead of shouting that Kane lacks pace or Townsend doesn't have a final ball etc, lets understand that they remain works in progress and are all still working on their games, improving their decision making, adding polish and gaining invaluable experience. so with that in mind, lets for once get excited and talk about our outstanding bunch of kids and enjoy the moment...
