The next Tottenham manager must do this one big thing

By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham has a lot of tradition and history, it is known for many things including playing entertaining football or as it is affectionally known, the Tottenham way.

Another Tottenham tradition is blooding young players, it was done on a regular basis under Mauricio Pochettino and for the most part, it paid off.

There was a time when Spurs had the youngest team in the Premier League, that is no longer the case.

You cannot just throw youngsters into the mix for the sake of it but neither should they be ignored completely.

Look at all of the other big six clubs, each and every one of them has youngsters in their sides, Mason Greenwood, Bukayo Saka, Phil Foden, Mason Mount and so on.

Tottenham do have youngsters and on occasions, they do feature but nowhere near enough and whoever the new manager is, he needs to get back to that.

Oliver Skipp looks special and has had a brilliant season with Norwich City, Ryan Sessegnon could be something special as well and there are others, not least of all Japhet Tanganga.

When you have the senior players failing on a consistent basis, then why not give the kids an opportunity to shine, they will at least be enthusiastic and will give everything.

It is what Tottenham has been known for and we should get back to what worked so well in the past.

Ten Hag feels like a neat fit, especially if integrating the 3 or so exciting prospects (of a PL ready age) we have into the first team is a priority, which I think it probably is.

Our vaunted academy has produced a number of players who flattered to decive when they got into the first team squad,and were subsequently sold on to underwhelm at lower league clubs.

The idea might work where Japhet and Skippy are concerned,but we got Sessignon from Fulham so Scotty would probably incorporate him into the first team.

It’s an impossible conundrum for a manager. Results are the priority but the owners/chairman want to bring youngsters through & sell them. I thought Jose did ok with our youngsters but managers will always be criticised for not doing enough.

The problem with young players is the inconsistency and that managers prioritise results over bringing through young players who could cost them points.
