    It remains to be seen how Brentford do as a fair few of their younger players are still there from when they *did* have an academy. I suspect they'll live to regret shutting it down, personally.

    I hope Spurs youngsters are told this when they sign Academy Scholarship papers. Obviously not taking David Bentley's place though !

    Jacques: There’s one quote that stands out and I can remember Les Ferdinand telling me after I’d had a really good training session with the first team, that for me to take David Bentley’s place in the first team, you’ll have to work ten times harder than him. It took a while for me to process that but when I think about it it’s like saying I’m as good as him but why would the manager pick me over him if he can do what I can do and vice versa. He’s going to play because he has got more experience and more games than I have. So the thing that I would say to any young player who is looking to go into the first team, is that you’ve got to do more than the other players are doing at the training ground. You’ve got to do ten times what the first team players are doing, if Dele Alli is running 10 km a game then you have got to try and run 11 km in a game or even 12 km. If Son is scoring four goals a game then you need to try and score four goals or even more. And if Harry Kane is scoring 20 goals a season then try and aim to do the same, you can’t compare yourself with those players but you need to put yourself through that mindset of trying to do more than the other players in your position. And that will stand out in the managers head, always try and do better then the person ahead of you.

    Despite our u18's incredible record of 11 wins, 2 draws and zero losses this season, its only our win against Woolwich which separates us at the top of the table with Chelsea in hot pursuit dropping 2 points today.

    West Ham have a 15-year old on their bench (Diallo).

    Sterling missed a pen. Should have let Janssen take it.

    62 mins - Janssen off, Oakley Boothe on. Probably pre-planned as Janssen builds up match fitness

    68 mins - Eyoma sent off

    Sterling looking anywhere near to getting a spot on the bench, now Kane and Son are our for a while, or is Parrott closer to making his debut?
