Source Close To Club: Troy Parrott loan is about earning some trust
By Harry Hotspur -

Some Spurs fans have yet to grasp how the club operates in terms of loaning out players. These decisions are frequently passed off as part of player development, but in truth these deals tend to be struck as a last resort when the path to success at Tottenham is blocked by their own inadequacies.

Lack of game time isn’t an issue for professional sportsmen, top flight side need squads that are equipped to fight on as many as 3 or four fronts in the 21st century.

Troy Parrott’s impending exit comes at a point where Spurs could still seriously do with a Harry Kane stand-in, yet Parrott clearly isn’t deemed to be ready. Denis Cirkin is ahead of Parrott, which given the lad is also from Dublin, must surely sting.

The Boy Hotspur understands from a source close to the club that Parrott needs to gain the confidence of the training staff at Hotspur Way as a matter of some urgency.

The Sun ran a piece last year, highlighting Parrott’s love of the high life. Tottenham are speaking to a number of lower profile clubs about taking the boy to see if he can earn the trust that is currently MIA.

There is no denying these young players have the ability to succeed , it’s the mentality to cope with the big stage at their age, is what they need to realise. It seems clear that Parrot has not got his head around what he needs to show in his attitude and behaviour to be considered for the first team. There are hundreds maybe thousands, who have had the ability over the years and end up wasting it, and it’s simply down to the individual at the end of the day.

Yes mate. In fact loads of lads all over the country have the ability. Much talent is lost. Poor families in non football scouting areas. Many turn to crime or drugs or end up in jail. Accidents, tragedy, the list goes on.. The lads in any acadamy will have talent. What really seperates the best from the rest is their mental ability. Producing top level consistently and being the ultimate competitor is all in the head… To be the best you have to believe you’re the best. Mentality is everything at the top of any sport.

Agreed, it’s always been tough to make it through , but the difference these days is that clubs have so many young kids on their books, that they dont get enough individual coaching that some of them need, to help them reach the next level.

Playing the likes of Mason Mount, young impish golden nugget Gilmour mixing experience with youth Chelsea are adopting the correct approach.

Mason Mount also went out on loan abroad and then played a season for Derby.Gilmour played in Rangers Youth?Chelsea had 38 players on loan two seasons ago only one or two will make it at Chelsea,some others will have a career at a lower level but sold for a profit.

For the length of his career John Terry was one of the only players coming off the conveyor belt at Chelsea,if they needed a player they just went out and bought one.Now things are changing and Mount,James,Tomori,Abraham,Hudson -Odoi and Loftus-Cheek have made a break through.

Managed by an intelligent astute manager Chelsea will be competitive next season. Selling Eden Hazard presumably Chelsea supporters feared the worse but quietly going about their business quickly signing Timo Werner and another player they have done well in the circumstances.

Leslie Crawford

They have brought in Werner because Frank can’t rely on Abraham,their keeper Kepa and the defence is their weakness they let in more goals than under any manager in 22 seasons.Until they buy quality defenders I don’t see them troubling Pool or City. As much as we recognise them bringing the kids through,they are reverting to type and going after big purchases as well Havertz,Chillwell.

Leeds fans never rated Clarke very highly, rarely got on from the bench either, ditto Sessegnon after his year in the PL in the first team. The alleged “shrewd” Levy is a mug and they saw him coming! £40m down the swanny when we’re desperate for other positions to be filled. It seems that discount Danny has a twin personality – most of the time it’s so cautious he misses out on players like Grealish and Dembele, then just once in a while he has a brain fart and throws money down the drain on players like those above. Weird.

He was a bit light weight and the step up in quality at his new club under a change in management was difficult.He has been in the gym and looks stronger,hopefully to be unleashed under rader as our next wingback. A really nice lad who is very professional and gives no trouble at all when not in the side.

For both Winks and Sissoko between them to have only scored a handful of goals thats not good enough at this level. Need to chip in with the more goals. As good a midfielder he was Dembeles lack of goals was a negative feature of his game.

Leslie Crawford

We still need to replace the goals Eriksen scored year on year and get Dele back to where he was playing a few seasons ago.With Moura,Kane Son and Bergwijn I don’t expect much from Sissoko or Winks.LoCelso hasn’t scored in the PL

It’s a big step up to the PL from the C-ship as many teams have found out, including Fulham. He was pretty poor in their PL season, which makes it laughable that we paid £30m for him imo. He was worth £10-15m tops after he failed to raise his game in the big league. At that price he might have been worth talking a punt on, at £30m def not.

He was only a teenager this time last year and you’re writing him off already. Wing backing is hard to master. It takes time. 23 is the magic number. Give the boy some time.

Its all good if the loan player is getting games. If not its pointless. I wouldn’t let any young player I bought go out on loan instantly. Year at Hotspur way “our way” first.

The loan system is a cash cow for the likes of City and Chelsea. Most top clubs have a European subsidiary, with Utd and Chelsea having one in the Netherlands, City have about 8 now around the world. Not all the 18-21 are going to get a crack at the first team so they are given game time on loan to increase their value and help them prepare mentally and physically for pro football. Mason Mount spent time in Eredivisie before Derby, Cantwell at Norwich went there too. They weren’t good enough to get in the First XI at their parent clubs so the loan helped them develop. KWP should have gone out on loan 3 years ago at least, just like Rose did (I thought he was amongst our duds before Sunderland, despite the Arsenal world i.e.). When Rose came back he was a different player. If Parrot is not getting time at Spurs, he needs it elsewhere, playing is definitely better than sitting on a bench.

Agreed. When Tottenhams cash cow really and I mean really starts pumping P’s we’re gonna start buying and stashing players around the world too. Five years time. I don’t think some people realise just how much money we’ll be earning in the not to distant future. That plus our winning money too. In José and n€w lan€ l€vy one must trust.

Some fans seem to think a player of any age has a god given right to play. Some players also seem to think this way and have forgotten about training and effort. Players get too much too soon and think they have made it. Perhaps Ali should go to giggs house and look at his collection of medals the ones he won on the pitch not off it.

I think its fine for a fully developed player to sit on the bench week in, week out.. Like the Babyfaced assassin used to be the perfect super sub for manure back in the 90s… But the young do need developing. They need experience. It’s no good having potential stuck on the bench wasting their time. I’m not sure messi and ronaldo would have become what they are, had they not been playing every week since teenagers. They say you learn a new thing every match. The only thing one learns on the bench is how to deal with the mental frustration of not starting… Parrot needs to play and prove himself. Skipp is reportedly going out on loan too which is needed if we are not playing him.

Troy off back to Ireland? I don’t think troy going back to “your not bringing that horse into the lift are ya? I’ve got to, the stairs will fucking kill him” league will do his technical learning any good. A championship club at the very least is where he should be going. QPR or Bournemouth
