The youth revolution at Tottenham Hotspur has been well underway in the past few years as the Spurs production line continues to churn in world beaters year after year.
From the likes of Harry Kane to Harry Winks, Spurs truly can boast to have one of the most productive academies in club football.
Spurs recently added to their burgeoning pool of youth talent with the signing of Irish prodigy Troy Parrott from Belvedere FC earlier this year.
While being is a virtually unknown player at this time, one look at his goal below will convince even the staunchest of critics of the undeniable talent in the Irish youngster.
The youngster scored the belter of the goal in Ireland’s U16s 4-2 win over Northern Ireland last week. Check out the goal below –
Ever since reports emerged linking Gabriel Pires with a move to Newcastle United emerged, the player has again more than subtly hinted at his interest in the move to the English club after liking this comment on Instagram few days ago.
The midfielder ’s impressive form this season has seen the likes of Everton and West Ham all looking at the possibility of luring the defender away from Leganes but if the recent social media activities of the defender are anything to go by, Pires might just be playing Premier League football at Newcastle next season.
The 23 year old recently favourited a tweet related to Newcastle United and as always that did not go unnoticed on part of the fans who quickly spread the development around.
Check out the screenshot of his Twitter activity below –
Having once been the team’s talisman, former West Ham player Dimitri Payet left West Ham United for Marseille in rather acrimonious terms. The manner of his departure left a rather bad taste on the West Ham fans who have since viewed Payet as public enemy number 1.
The fans’ aversion for Payet once more came to the fore in the most unexpected of events when West Ham defender Aaron Cresswell was selected in the England squad for the upcoming friendlies against Scotland and France.
With the prospect of Cresswell lining up against Payet in the England vs France tie, West Ham fans were expectedly eager to see Payet receive it from Cresswell.
In the midst of all this bad blood brewing, West Ham defender Angelo Ogbonna jumped in to the side of West Ham fans which will no doubt endear him to the fans. The Italian showed he is as Hammer through and through when he liked a fan post mocking Payet on Twitter.

Despite consistently being the one of the best sides in England for the past few seasons, Tottenham Hotspur yet again ended up finishing the season trophyless, that is, until their cup triumph in the AIA cup yesterday.
The Spurs team left the disappointment of falling short in the league against Chelsea as they triumphed 4-1 against Honk Kong Champions FC Kitchee to lift the AIA trophy much to the delight of their fervent Asian fans.
Spurs’ professionalism on the night was a pure joy to watch and if that wasn’t enough, the Spurs players were seen playing along to the occasion.
One such instance was that of Spurs striker Vincent Janssen lifting the AIA Cup in pure ecstasy akin to a manner that would have done justice even to a UEFA Champions League trophy.
Or he might just be taking the piss, check out the moment below –
Despite not featuring prominently this season with reports linking him with a move away from the club, Manchester United full-back Luke Shaw has time and reiterated his desire to continue playing for United.
And despite being sidelined with injury, the defender once more showed his commitment to the club by engaging in a banter following his side’s Europa League triumph.
After Arsenal’s 2-0 triumph over Southampton which condemned United to 6th spot in the league, ArsenalFanTv came up with a video mocking United’s position in the table. The rest we all know, United won the Europa League ensuring Champions League qualification in the process.
The dramatic turn of events invariably had many United fans taking a piss back at the Gooners and Luke Shaw also got involved when he commented to a fan post.
Check out the post and Shaw’s response below:
Manchester United finally secured the elusive Europa Leauge trophy as they beat Dutch side Ajax 2-0 at the Friends Arena in Stockholm on Wednesday.
Goals from Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan saw the more experienced Red Devils comfortably overcome a young Ajax side in the final showpiece of Europe’s second tier competition.
Quite interestingly, in the midst of all the Ajax and Man Utd banners, a Tottenham flag queerly made an appearance in one of the stands in the stadium.
The white flag had the Spurs logo inscribed on it while bearing the Amsterdam name written on the horizontal blue stripe of the flag.
It remains unclear as to the reasons behind the bizarre appearance of the Spurs flag in a match between Ajax and Man Utd. One possible reason could be the presence of several former Ajax players in the Spurs team.

Ever since news broke out that long serving defender Pablo Zabaleta would be leaving Manchester City at the end of the season, speculations have been rife as to the next possible destination for the Argentine.
The full-back who joined Man City in 2008 from Espanyol has made over 300 appearances for the Citizens winning the Premier League title twice.
West Ham United have been touted as one of the possible destinations for the 32 year old and if recent developments are anything to go, the defender might just be plying his trade from London next season.
Zabaleta was spotted on a train enroute to Manchester from London Euston when a Hammers fan spotted the full back.
Upon enquiry, the fan revealed that the Argentine did confirm his transfer to West Ham next season. Check out the picture below –
Manchester United’s 2-0 triumph against Ajax FC last night ensured that they qualified for the prestigious Champions League competition next season.
The win saw the Red Devils join the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and Liverpool as English representatives in Europe’s premier club football competition next season. Which made Arsenal the only top 6 team to not make it to the Champions League.
And Tottenham fan @Simply_Spurs, well known for his video making abilities, took the opportunity to mock bitter North London rivals with a hilarious video on Twitter.
The video begins with an animation being played to the sound of the Champions League soundtrack and features the logo of the five qualified English clubs with the Champions League animation in the background.
What is hilarious is the fact the soundtrack changes to a lousy one when the Arsenal logo appears next with the Europa league animation in the background

While the season has come to an end, there seems to be no end in sight to the Wimmer- Son bromance as the duo continue to make headlines with their admirable friendship off the pitch.
The duo were spotted getting at it again as the Tottenham made a promotional trip to Seoul ahead of the club’s post-season friendly in Hong Kong.
Speaking at the press conference in Seoul, Wimmer and Son debuted their new handshake infront on a very passionate South Korean audience.
While the duo expertly pulled off the stylistic handshake, team-mates Ben Davies and Kyle Walker who had also made the trip looked in all admiration at Wimmer and Son.
Walker in particular seemed particularly pleased with the Wimmer-Son handshake as he proudly looked on before eagerly applauding for the duo.

Despite having just concluded his debut season with Newcastle United, DeAndre Yedlin has become something of a fan favourite at Newcastle United.
The USA international played an important part in Newcastle’s promotion push with a series of astute defensive performances as well as providing leadership at the back.
With no football to be played till next month, Yedlin showed some unreal commitment to football as he was spotted training with former side Seattle Sounders in the States in a bid to keep up his fitness.
The Seattle Sounders’ official Twitter account posted a picture of the defender training with the Sounders team.
While Yedlin will most probably be called for international duty during the summer, this development does show that he will be more than ready when Newcastle begin their Premier League campaign next season.
Check out the picture of Yedlin training with the Sounders below –
