12 subs allowed for the Liverpool game. Will be interesting to see what academy players make it.
If we only have one goalkeeper on the bench, it will most likely only be Kyle Walker-Peters and Oliver Skipp. I expect George Marsh and Jamie Bowden to travel with the squad, as they are the only other fit outfield players registered. Alfie Whiteman could also travel, if we want a 4th goalkeeper in the squad.

Another of the 2nd year academy signing what is almost certainly a pro contract. Looks certain that all 2nd years now have signed pro contracts.


Going to be a massive overhaul of the development squad to be announced shortly given the number of this years 2nd Year academy joining them
Who is the lady with the big baps. Nice

Just went to Amos' twitter and no mention that he is training so here are the fit possibilities:

Whiteman, Austin, KWP, Eyoma, Marsh, Skipp, Bowden.

Very little on Amos twitter feed.

This is from end of March :

Last couple of paras :

It’s a six to nine-month injury and I’m nearly six months in. At the start, I thought to myself ‘can I get back in six months?’ but the specialist said with the season ending in May, there was no point coming back for a couple of weeks when I can aim for May, June and then into pre-season training in July.

“Everything I do now is focused on the first day of pre-season and I’m working towards that when I get there, I’m not just in good shape but the best shape I can possibly be.

I’m doing a lot on the pitch at the moment. I feel like a footballer again! I’m working with the ball, passing, dribbling, high-intensity running, twisting, and turning. The finishing line is in sight.”


I suspect that if the club wished he could have done intensive training during May to be pretty much fit, but without a few friendly matches I cannot see him being on the bench in CL final after about 8 months out.

So just depends upon whether Poch thought it was worth it - but as everyone will probably be fit the last places on bench will probably go to Skipp and KWP with 19th man being Marsh or Bowden. It would be 'unfair' to have Amos (if he were fit) on the bench in place of say Skipp so most likely scenario would be 19th man for Amos, so why go through the intensive training, better to have a Bowden or Marsh as 19th man
 

Just a reminder that the Terbourg Tournament for u19's starts on Friday 31st May and runs over the weekend. In Spurs Group are Ajax Cape Town, Vitesse and Flamengo (Brazil)….whilst Liverpool are in the other group !

A couple of our u19's such as Oliver Skipp and Jamie Bowden may be on first team duty of course

If our starting 11 is:

Lloris
Aurier -Alderweireld - Vertonghen - Rose
Winks - Sissoko
Son - Dele - Eriksen
Kane
Bench could likely be:

Gazzaniga
Sanchez
Foyth
Davies
Walker-Peters *
Dier
Wanyama
Skipp *
Lamela
Lucas
Llorente

That's 11 players.

So I'd hazard a guess the 12th player would be either Marsh or Bowden. Both of which have been on the bench in Premier League games this season or travelled with the Champions League squads.

What's incredible is that for our biggest game of the season, we are likely to have EVERY single player fit. Which we haven't had all season.

I know he's been shite, but not even giving Trippier a place kn the bench ahead of George Marsh is a little harsh.

I think Trippier will either be in first X1 or on bench, so we have 12 subs without discussing Marsh, Bowden or Edwards.

Outside chance Poch will think Vorm should be on the bench as he's been a decent back up GK for a few years at Spurs - but if he does problem is who to leave out.
