Spurs announce 25 (or 23) man squad!

Tottenham have this announced their twenty-five man squad for the second half of the season.

Although they have only named twenty-three players, Steven Caulker, Tom Carroll Harry Kane and any number of youth players qualify as they qualify as an Under 21, so there is no real need to panic at the lower number. Perhaps looking a little deeper however, you do wonder how many games David Bentley or Jonathan Obika play active parts, whilst Sandro is even less likely to play unless hobbling around on crutches is considered an asset. Perhaps we will see Bentley getting a chance, at least on the bench and then who knows. Stranger things have happened...

So in effect, 23 could almost become twenty, but does this offer opportunities for Kane, Carroll and even the likes of Parrett, Bostock and Louongo, should they not be sent on loan in the next few weeks? All have great talent, but so far have lacked Premiership opportunity. forget indifferent loans away, that counts for little, in my opinion. Sure we want to see a youngster dominating in a lower league loan, however is that really what is important, and developing 'boy into man' and returning a more rounded and mature individual with a greater understanding of life and the game being what counts. Livermore, Carroll and Townsend have hardly set the loan world alight, yet both have looked decent, when called upon. Could one of the others be the same, if given half a chance?

So the squad is: Hugo Lloris, Brad Friedel; Kyle Walker, Kyle Naughton, Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Michael Dawson, William Gallas, Younes Kaboul, Jan Vertonghen; Scott Parker, Sandro Cordeiro, Jake Livermore, Mousa Dembele, Tom Huddlestone; Aaron Lennon, Gareth Bale, David Bentley, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Lewis Holtby; Clint Dempsey, Jermain Defoe, Emmanuel Adebayor and Jon Obika.
