Spurs face PSG in NextGen last 16.

Tottenham's young stars face a trip to Paris in the knock out stage of the NextGen series last sixteen.

Spurs qualified as one of the best placed 3rd placed teams, after what can probably be described as a frustrating group stage, where they dropped points in games that they should have done better, but inconsistency is still a major issue at this stage of a player and teams development, and based on more recent results outside the competition, you hope that the side are running into some great form and confidence, and who knows how far they can get in a competition that ended so frustratingly last season.

Paris St Germain topped their group, which included Juventus, Man City and Fernabache, however the Italians will possibly be kicking themselves for not topping the group, as they were the only team in the group stages to remain unbeaten and earned four points from six against the French zillionaires. Perhaps this indicated that Juve will be the tournaments dark horses, but it does indicate that PSG are not invincible and though they will have home advantage, this promising Spurs side are more than capable of getting a result to take them into the quarter finals.

This round will be concluded in one game as opposed to a home and away leg and will be decided after extra time and penalties, should the game be all square after 90 minutes. This of course will favour the home side, however when you consider there may be added pressure on young shoulders and that Spurs are a quick and incisive counter attacking side, it is still anyones game. We only have to look at how Barcelona dismantled us at WHL, yet we gave them a footballing lesson in Spain, winning 4-1. In the group stage, seven of our eight points were secured on our travels, so perhaps that should be seen as a lucky omen that we have another away trip and have to get a result...

would be great to see the boys do better than last season. going out the way we did was such a disappointment.

Maybe the NextGen team can lend us a striker?
Spurminator
maybe anyone could lend us one!! Though I assume that Obika will be the man to step up, I wonder if Shaq Coulthirst could be the man instead? he played his first U-21 game last week and scored, but I suppose it very much depends on whether we keep Obika or loan him out I assume he doesnt really have a future as a first team player as things stand
oxfordspur
They seem like a talented bunch... shame that most wont make the first team though....
Yidmarks
off topic... we should be in for Tom Ince... as back up for BALE and LENNON....
Yidmarks
38 hours to go.... count the times you refresh your chosen news site... lol
Yidmarks
@ Yidmarks, I really like Ince, but I feel he will only move to a team where he is convinced he will get games. I also wonder whether instead of spending 6m for a player who is still developing, we give someone like Pritchard a try
oxfordspur
Ox - sounds like we also need to get Pritchard and Archer new contracts. There's been some rumours in the last week or so, obviously made up but based on journo's know they are both ripe for the picking if we don't sign them to long term deals.
muttley
absolutely, though based on their progression over the last 18 mths, you would hope they see their futures at Spurs rather than take a chance of moving elsewhere and finding the grass might not be any greener
