Cameron Carter-Vickers in action for Ipswich Town against Bolton

A good article on squad rotation and how perhaps Zinedine Zidane got it right last season when Real Madrid not only win LaLiga but retained the UEFA Champions League, the first time this feat had been achieved in the tournament's history in it's current guise.

Chance Analytics


Looking at the Tottenham squad there were 16 players who were relied upon. Mauricio Pochettino has tended to work with a smaller set of players than previous managers in an attempt to keep the players feeling really involved and an important part of the squad, which in turn has the knock-on effect of keeping the players happy.

We saw only one major first team squad member leave on a permanent deal, Kyle Walker, although having bought a replacement we also saw Vincent Janssen leave for a season-long loan deal.

Tottenham Squad Minutes Played 2016/17

Eric Dier 4,092
Christian Eriksen 4,036
Dele Alli 4,013
Victor Wanyama 3,894
Toby Alderweireld 3,325
Kyle Walker 3,169
Harry Kane 3,149
Heung-min Son 2,973
Ben Davies 2,683
Mousa Dembele 2,504
Danny Rose 1,803
Kieran Trippier 1,457
Vincent Janssen 1,355
Moussa Sissoko 1,306
Harry Winks 1,298
Erik Lamela 943

Cameron Carter-Vickers 360
Georges-Kevin N'Koudou 324
Josh Onomah 277
Filip Lesniak 4

This season we have seen the same squad management, the same rotation of the full-backs, when they are all fit. What this season has also shown with Ben Davies and Danny Rose, is that if you are in possession of a place, in other words you are generally the one picked for the bigger games, you don't automatically lose it when the perceived previous first choice becomes available after injury again.

Ben Davies with 14 actually leads Danny Rose (13) on career assists. The Welshman has 5 assists this season, which is the 4th most of any defender in the Premier League. He has also chipped in with 2 goals. Only Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli have created more goals for Spurs this season.

When Davies plays, Spurs have a higher win percentage than when he doesn't. He was bought as a player who had an attacking element in his game, yet was rather more defensive than Rose. We are seeing he has grown in confidence and developed his game to suit us, giving a greater attacking outlet than many might imagine.

If you valued them you's have Rose as the more expensive player. Rose hasn't been the player he was last season, we are only seeing glimpses of it this season. I still wonder whether he is just biding his time until the summer.

Pochettino rewards players, Wanyama hasn't yet claimed back the role that was his last season. Their was press talk of Dier leaving because reporters perceived he might not be happy not being first choice defensive midfielder. Now the show is on the other foot, Dier has the spot and Wanyama has to try and take it off him, the same as Rose has to try and remove Davies.

Those that want to battle are the players you want at your club, they have the right mental approach, those that go into their shell or want out are fair weather players and not players for us long-term.

It isn't possible to get every transfer right and it is only Pochettino who will know if a player is worth persevering with after one season. If their is improvement in them then yes, but someone like Janssen there were big question marks over. We loaned him out and didn't want him back when he was injured it seemed. Latest reports suggest Fenerbache want to keep him another season.

They paid us a £2.25 million loan fee and if you take into account the add-ons on the deal that brought him to the club will not have been triggered with his performances last season, his fee isn't as reported in the press, as they add in add-on fees to a transfer fee.

Do we sell him in the summer, do we loan him out for a similar fee and hope he grows as a player with another season of football?

We are being linked with a centre-back or two in Germany, yet we have Cameron Carter-Vickers making his way at Sheffield United and now Ipswich Town. He has started most Championship games and has 2,110 minutes playing experience under his belt. He has also won his first full international cap for the USA in a friendly against Portugal where he came on as a substitute after 48 minutes.

Carter-Vickers and others will need to assessed pre-season to see were they are at, but in all this development we mustn't lose sight of the fact that we must start winning things.

That makes developing youngsters that much harder. Some supporters want to abandon this youth development, they want players bought, stunting youngsters opportunities. A fine balance has to be trod and that isn't easy.

Right now it's Champions League qualification that matters and we could do with Llorente coming up with the goods again against Swansea in the FA Cup.

Cameron Carter-Vickers and Toby Alderweireld release clause

10:30 pm

TRANSFER TALK


HITC have come up with another of their articles that show they don't know much about Spurs. This time the article was about our young 19-year-old (20 in December) USA Under-20 and Under-23 international (he has 2 and 4 caps respectively) centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers.

''There is every chance that Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino will try to loan him out this summer" they tell us.

Well that is completely UNTRUE. The opposite is the truth, who says so, Mauricio Pochettino himself. The cream of our young players stay under his guidance at Tottenham to learn his and our way.



Looking from the outside the situation surrounding 28-year-old (29 next March) Toby Alderweireld I would think is not over his wages but over having a release clause in his contract. Currently he has once that can be activated in 2019 and we want him to sign a new contract that takes out that release clause, especially at it's current level of £25 million (€28.86m - AUS$42.89m - US$32.37m).

On the continent it is normal to have a high release clause which rises with each new negotiation in return for a pay rise. This may be the sticking point with his agent. If Virgil van Dijk is worth £60 million (€69.27m - AUS$102.94m - US$77.69m), the figure Liverpool were prepared to pay, then Alderweireld as arguably the best centre-back in the Premier League, must be £80 million (€92.37m - AUS$137.26 - US$103.59m), which is ludicrous. 

We don't want a release clause so we can charge what we want. I doubt wages are the real issue at all.

Carter-Vickers, Walker-Peters and Onomah set to play more next season

8:33 am


Tottenham turned to youth, much of it British youth, and put a strategy in place to develop our own players, who will know our system inside out and can seamlessly integrate into the first team should an opportunity present itself.

When you are familiar and comfortable you are more likely to have the confidence to perform. Tottenham currently have a number of youngster following Harry Winks and Mauricio Pochettino has suggested to Football London, only days after they suggested one of them should go out on loan against Pochettino policy, that three Spurs youngsters will be getting more opportunities next season.

“Yes, of course. They are players that we are thinking about for the future. Yes, we expect that they will be involved next season more than they were this season. 
“When you are young and you have the chance to play in the U20 World Cup, it’s always fantastic to go and play. Of course, always that type of international competition will help them to develop their skills and improve and then it will benefit us.”

TheFIFA Under-20 World CupKorea republic  2017 consists of 52 matches to find the winner and Josh Onomah, Kyle Walker-Peters look sure to represent England while English-born Cameron Carter-Vickers will be representing the USA.

These tournaments give players further opportunity to travel and represent their country. They have to get used to new food, new cultures, different temperatures, surfaces, facilities, humidity, all helping their learning and development. The last few tournaments have seen players go to Holland, Canada, Egypt, Colombia, Turkey and New Zealand where Serbia beat Brazil in the final.

They have to expand their comfort zone, which again allows them greater confidence when they return to club football.

Carter-Vickers performance overshadowed

10:30 am

Jamie Redknapp has been ridiculed by Spurs fans for his comments about Liverpool right-back Cameron Carter-Vickers!

It all rather overshadowed a decent performance from the 18-year-old (19 in December) USA Under-23 international centre-back. It is not hard to see why the club rate him so highly or that he is a Premier League player in the making. He outperformed Kevin Wimmer, who many have been calling for inclusion on his wrong side to replace Toby Alderweireld. He showed tonight the decision to put a right-footed Dier on the right of our centre-back pairing to be the right one.

He could have done better for the first goal, as could Wimmer and probably Vorm. It was a moment they all were not anticipating and were far to reactive in their football. Vorm has to wait that little bit longer and would be expecting his centre-backs to do more than they did. It is moments like that that youngsters learn from, they have to make mistakes to improve, everyone does.

Mauricio Pochettino has no doubts about him.

“I think he can go on to be one of the best defenders in England in the future. He is strong, he has a good mentality, he has all the qualities of a player with a big future.”

'Best young player on the pitch for me is Carter-Vickers the right back for Liverpool' - Jamie Redknapp, 2016.

Always disappointing to lose but if Cameron Carter-vickers and Harry Winks do not have a career at this level I will be amazed.

Hoped for a bit more from Onomah. He's been a bit tentative so far. Carter-Vickers is looking very capable again though.

Carter-Vickers played well last night. Could push Clyne in months to come. ūüėāūüėāūüėā

Captain Carter-Vickers

8:30 am

The England Under-20 side the mini tournament they were competing in during this international break with a 2-0 victory over USA Under-20's.

Kyle Walker-Peters played the first half, while Cameron Carter-Vickers completed the full 90 minutes as skipper for the USA. Carter-Vickers has been a regular in the USA Under-23 team since he was 17 and occasionally drops down when the USA are playing tough opposition.

It is good news for Spurs that he is getting some game time under his belt while he provides cover at Tottenham for Toby Alderweireld. Having recently agreed a new deal at Tottenham, Carter-Vickers is in line for a senior call-up soon as former Tottenham striker Jurgen Klinsmann wants to fast track him into the senior squad.

Spurs roll out another signing

7:00 pm


The Tottenham PR machine churns out another story with the contract signing of yet another player, this time 18-year-old (19 in December) Cameron Carter-Vickers who is currently a regular on our bench as backup to Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen.

"Obviously the new deal shows the manager has faith in me. I've been here since I was ten, eleven, just working hard and trying to get to this stage now. Obviously I want to push on more but it means a lot. It's taking your game up another level and getting that little bit better. In my opinion we have two of the best centre-backs in the league here, so to train with them every day and watch them play, I can only learn from them and it can only make me better."

Carter-Vickers holds dual nationality and could play at senior level for England even though he has represented USA at every level from Under-17 to Under-23. However the USA believe that it isn't an issue and he is fully committed to representing USA.

Carter-Vickers and Wimmer set for Gillingham head-to-head battle

5:00 pm

ANOTHER TALENTED SPURS YOUNGSTER


Cameron Carter-Vickers deserves to be in the team suggests Mauricio Pochettino at the pre-game press conference ahead of tomorrow's Premier League tie against Sunderland.

"I believe that Cameron is doing well. If you watch the games against Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Inter Milan again, I think he deserves to play in the starting XI. 
"He can give to the team better quality than another player. It's for that [he's named on the bench]. All my decisions are because I think a player can give more things than another player. It's for that that I picked him on the bench. 
"Kevin is the same. He arrived late to pre-season and was injured, remember. He didn't play in Australia and Cameron did very well. You can watch the games and if he deserves to be on the bench, then why not? Because he is young? It's about performance."

He is likely to make play against Gillingham in the League Cup in midweek alongside Kevin Wimmer who had a hamstring injury and missed the start of the season. Carter-Vickers has thus taken his place on the bench while Wimmer continues the pre-season training that he Moussa Sissoko and Georges-Kevin N'Koudou have been doing.

The Gillingham game will be a head-to-head battle to see who sits on the bench when Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are playing. There were rumours that Spurs would listen to offers for Kevin Wimmer towards the end of the transfer window, presumably because of the progress of carter-Vickers.

They play on opposite sides, Wimmer covers Vertonghen and Carter-Vickers Alderweireld but from what I have seen Carter-Vickers may just have the versatility to cover the left side better than Wimmer can cover the right.

Pochettino to look at Cameron Carter-Vickers

Cameron Carter-Vickers is very highly thought of at Spurs. Manager Mauricio Pochettino likes him, he has the talent and more importantly the mentality to succeed. The 18-year-old (19 in December) right-footed centre-back has already played 9 games for the USA Under-23 team and has impressed the coaching staff and teammates, who were surprised by his ability when he moved up from the Under-20 side.

We haven't yet bought a backup for Toby Alderweireld and Pochettino will take close look at him during the International Champions Cup. For a youngster it is a challenge to play against Juventus and Atletico Madrid, no just the football side but the mental side of the game as well. He will have to play against big teams, whoever they put out.

For he and others, how they perform will determine their immediate future this season. Will he impress enough to be trusted to step up? Will we be using Kevin Wimmer as centre-back cover for each side, assuming we can get someone to take Federico Fazio off our hands of course? That would allow us to give Carter-Vickers cameo appearances to get used to the level.

We are being linked with right-sided centre-backs but nothing seems very serious at the moment, perhaps that is because the sale of Fazio doesn't look very likely at the moment.

Would Spurs be interested in Bartra this summer?

Would Spurs be interested in Bartra this summer?

Why do players fall for this you are a part of my plans garbage when what the boss means is, I need you in case a get a couple of injuries otherwise you won't be starting many games. Marc Bartra could have left Barcelona in the summer thanks to a release clause but Enrique convinced him to stay, despite looking as if he was going to be fifth choice this season.

Reports in Spain once again talk of centre-back Bartra leaving after starting just three games this season. It never ceases to amaze me the number of football who fall for the line managers spin them, they must overrate their own abilities. According to ESPN he was thought to be the future of the Barcelona defence having come through their academy. They say he is commanding in the air, something I would question with his height, athletic and brilliant on the ball.


Spanis footballers are brought up that the team is everything, defenders are brought up to pass the ball out of defence, even in the tightest of circumstances so his upbringing suggests the 25-year-old (26 nxt January) would fit at Spurs as a replacement for Federico Fazio.

Gerard Pique, Javier Mascherano, Jeremy Mathieu and Thomas Vermaelen are all ahead of him at Barcelona, Spurs need a fourth centre-back we can rely on so rotation can take place and we have adequate cover. Any injury now impacts the side as presumably we then have to move Eric Dier back and that means disturbing a successful midfield. When you have injuries you want to minimise the impact, moving Dier would maximise impact, you are moving more components than you have to.

With 18-year-old (19 in December) Cameron Carter-Vickers coming through though, would we be interested in buying another centre-back this summer? He is very highly thought of and has been mentioned by Pochettino as being able to provide cover. naturally he still has developing to do but will he be used next season as Josh Onomah has been used this season?

Carter-Vickers Under Armour advert

10:30 am
Cameron Carter-Vickers was on the bench for the Monaco UEFA Europa League tie. He is a 17-year-old (18 on 31 December) centre-back playing with the USA Under-23 squad and has an outside chance of making the World Cup in 2018. First he has to break into the Spurs first team and he is the reason I suspect that Milos Veljkovic will be leaving the club.

We have an established pairing, we have a back-up in Kevin Wimmer but we need a fouth choice. If we pick Veljkovic, who Pochettino believes lacks the intensity we need, then that may hinder the development of Carter-Vickers.

For a youngster to get his own advert at his age says a lot about him, a lot about his marketing potential in America and thus his value both on and off the field to Spurs. The advert theme is making the breakthrough and it uses Carter-Vickers 'battle' to break through to the Spurs first team.

Kane, Son Heung-min, Carter-Vickers, Hernandez and Mascherano

10:30 am
The ESPN blog ask what Spurs have to do to kick start our season after the international break saw Harry Kane score two and Son Heung-min score three goals for their respective countries. There seems little justification is their suggestion to replace Walker with Trippier at the moment, he should get his chance on Thursday in the UEFA Europa League.



NBC Sports blog ProSoccer Talk bring us an exclusive on Spurs Under-21 captain Cameron Carter-Vickers, our 17-year-old centre-back from Westcliffe-on-Sea down on the Kent coast. He attended the USA U-21 training camp in Manchester last week. He talks about captaining Spurs and the added confidence it gives him.

To demonstrate that players can actually determine where they play and that if Spurs are interested it isn't actually a case of just throwing more money at a deal, Javier Hernandez turned down a move to Tottenham after we agreed a deal with manchester United Sports Witness tell us. We have seen what happens when you throw money at the wrong players, Adebayor and Paulinho are just two more interested in the cash than the performances, yet Spurs fans then always complain Levy should put his hand in his pocket, fortunately these financial geniuses don't run our club.

Quick News
It seems to be being exposed a lot in Spain right now as presumably the European Union's demands for Spain to put their football taxation in order takes effect. Neymar, Messi and now Javier Mascherano under investigation for tax fraud. Stories from Spain say he has not paid £1.10-million (€1.5m) tax on image rights.

The Evening Standard tell us Son Heung-min chose Tottenham over Premier League rivals Manchester City and Liverpool which show we were competing with teams at the top of the league for his signature, always a healthy sign.

Fans help pick the MLS All-Star squad

5:00 pm
An update on the new away kit for sale in America, it has been removed from the sales floor and will not be on sale until 25 July, just before Tottenham go to America to play the MLS All-Stars who will feature Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard, Kaka and former Spurs target David Villa.

Update: The Away jersey has been removed from the floor and will be available for sale on 25 July.


The first group of players have been named for the 2015 AT&T MLS All-Star Game against Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday, July 29 at 9 pm ET, live on FOX Sports 1, UniM√°s, TSN and RDS in America. It's a game I'm looking forward to seeing and hopefully Dele Alli will make an appearance given the rave reviews he is receiving in training. We can expect to see American DeAndre Yedlin and Cameron Carter-Vickers as well.

Prior to the squad being announced the Fan XI has been unveiled before the full MLS squad is named later this week. Will it include former Tottenham player Clint Dempsey or Robbie Keane currently playing for LA Galaxy.

2015 MLS All-Star Fan XI:
GK Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake)
DEF Matt Besler (Sporting Kansas City)
DEF Omar Gonzalez (LA Galaxy)
DEF DaMarcus Beasley (Houston Dynamo)
MID Kak√° (Orlando City SC)
MID Michael Bradley (Toronto FC)
MID Benny Feilhaber (Sporting Kansas City)
MID Graham Zusi (Sporting Kansas City)
FWD David Villa (New York City FC)
FWD Clint Dempsey (Seattle Sounders FC)
FWD Obafemi Martins (Seattle Sounders FC)

A fan XI is a good idea and good publicity, it gets the league fans involved, why is the Premier League not doing something similar, why do we have them choosing or reporters choosing a team of the season. It is important to market the game and never rest on your laurels. Engaging with fans is or should be a key element to marketing, the fan base is the most important asset a club has, the league has.

The 22 man squad for the game will be announced on 18 July and will include Commissioner Don Garber’s two picks of Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard. Colorado Rapids and MLS All-Star head coach Pablo Mastroeni will pick the other 20 players and will include some Fan XI players as their votes are taken into account when selecting the squad.

It all helps to make the fans feel a part of the game, add interest and create awareness in the lead up to the televised game.

Best academy product since Ledley King

7:00 pm
The FIFA Under-20 World Cup Final in North Harbour Stadium, Auckland, New Zealand took place on 20 June with Serbia beating Brazil 2-1 after extra time. Tottenham centre-back Milos Veljkovic lifted the trophy but Spurs had another academy product at the tournament.



England were not there so our players missed out on gaining tournament experience. We saw the England Under-21 side once again fail to get past the group stages in the European Under-21 Championships, just as the senior side failed at the last World Cup.

Tottenham were also represented at the FIFA Under-20 World Cup by Cameron Carter-Vickers whose side the USA met Serbia in the quarter-final, losing 6-5 on penalties. The experience will help both highly-rated played develop. The USA already consider Carter-Vickers to be quite some player.

His father had a long career as a pro basketball career so he has been brought up in a sporting atmosphere. One American media outlet, Sports Vice, speaks highly of him.

'Carter-Vickers is the one of U.S. soccer's newest rising stars; a 17-year-old with a freshly-minted professional contract at Premier League glamour club Tottenham Hotspur. Those in the know in London say he's the club's best defensive academy product since the superb English centre-back Ledley King.'

Tab Ramos is the USA Under-20 coach and he describes Carter-Vickers as being the most mature, despite being the youngest member of the squad.

"Even though he's the youngest player on the squad, he's probably one of the most mature on the field in terms of the way he plays. We're very excited about his future and what he's going to give US soccer over many years to come."

He was born in Southend, Esses and the Americans describe him as shy, slightly lilting English accent, his father was from Louisiana so quite some difference. Despite the accent Carter-Vickers feels he would have chosen the USA if he had the choice anyway.

"England never called me up, so I haven't had the choice of playing for them or not. I think I would have always played for the USA anyway. My dad has had a big influence on me, in sporting terms. He always tells me to stay level-headed. After that loss against Ukraine [at the World Cup], for example, he texted me and said 'just stay focused, talk about your issues and move forward and progress'."

That advice serves him well, in the next game he was described as being immense. That kind of focus will stand him in good stead as will the mental approach of continuing to improve. Former Spurs and USA goalkeeper Brad Friedel, now our US Ambassador, was asked by our official site about him in January before the 2015 CONCACAF Under-20 Championship in Jamacia during that month.

"I know a lot about Cameron having coached him, played with him and trained with him here at Spurs. He went into the US fold not too long ago. They had him in his own age group and he did really well so they put him in older groups and he’s been extremely impressive. He’s playing above his age group again out in Jamaica, but physically and mentally I think he can cope with it. He’s looked very good and I’m delighted he’s playing with the US – hopefully he has a very good tournament for us.”

Friedel was an assistant coach at that tournament so his association with the Spurs youngster will go on. With two such promising prospects, one wonders whether Cameron Carter-Vickers and Milos Veljkovic will be a future Tottenham centre-back pairing?
