Results for Ryan Fredericks

Rangers played Spurs yesterday

10:30 am
New Glasgow Rangers manager Mark Warburton brought the Scottish side down to Tottenham to play a behind closed doors friendly against our Development Squad. The game was three sessions of 30 minutes giving time for all to get a game.



Mauricio Pochettino was very happy with the work that Warburton did with young prospect Alex Pritchard last season at Brentford and wants to send him further players to develop. Harry Winks has signed a new contract at Tottenham and he is one player Warburton wants to take on a season-long loan deal.

The game afforded time for Warburton to discuss other players with right-back Ryan Fredericks name being mentioned. When you find someone who is good with youngsters then it makes sense to keep using them. While Rangers are in the second tier of Scottish football, the crowds are big as are the expectations. Their history demands they win and get promotion back to the top-flight and that pressure may help develop Winks.

For Fredericks it would be a strange move for me having played at Middlesborough and made it to a Championship Play-off Final at Wembley. It would rather suggest he has no future at Tottenham being 23 in October.

For those of you desperate for the score Spurs U-21's won 3-2. Our previous senior games against Rangers recall some to mind some famous Tottenham names.

QPR want Spurs right-back

2:32 pm
Relegated side Queens Park Rangers, now managed by former Tottenham youth coach Chis Ramsey, have contacted Tottenham about the availability of 22-year-old (23 in October) full-back Ryan Fredericks.



With Kyle Walker, Kieran Trippier and possibly DeAndre Yedlin ahead of him at Tottenham his chances of progressing into the first team are severely limited. It is the role of the academy to produce professional footballers, whether that be for Tottenham or not. Sales of players in Fredericks position, unless a full salary Premier League loan can be arranged to increase his value, help to fund youth development. In an ideal world, it should be self-funding.

Chris Ramsey was a part of that and knows the Tottenham youngsters well. He has already snapped up a former protege of his, 22-year-old Australian international Massimo Luongo from Swindon Town.

Last season Fredericks helped Middlesbrough reach the Championship play-off final and QPR were hoping to take him on another loan spell, however, it is believed Tottenham want a straight sale and are asking £3 million (US$4.69m - AUS$6.19m - €4.23m). Fredericks has one year of his Tottenham contract to run so the price may be a little high for QPR.

Ryan Fredericks found his comeback tough

2:30 pm
Ryan Fredericks is delighted to be back playing for Middlesbrough again after spending 8 weeks at Tottenham for treatment on his thigh injury.

Ryan Fredericks found his comeback tough


He revealed his frustration to local paper the Evening Gazette and then spoke to the clubs website about returning to a side who have kept 14 clean sheets this term, impressive when you consider Fredericks was asked to work on his defensive positioning during his loan spell.
"I'm an awful spectator - I think most players are. It is really frustrating. You are just desperate to be out there on the pitch playing your part. 
"I've been away, but been following progress closely. I've watched as many games as possible online, I was at the Man City game and I've been up to quite a few matches at the Riverside to cheer the lads on too. 
"And I was keeping in touch with the boys all the time, texting and speaking. I'm still part of the banter and up with all the in jokes. 
"The group here is excellent and I didn't want to miss too much. But I'm back now and determined to make up for lost time."
“It was a tough game and we knew it would be. Personally the first 20 minutes were hard. I had to get back in the tempo of things, then it got better.  

He returned to action for them in the 1-0 win over high-flying Brentford where he came up against fellow Tottenham loanee Alex Pritchard, himself catching the headlines and continuing to make a name for himself in the division, just as he did in League One last season.

It's good to have two youngsters playing at the top of the division, Middlesbrough sit third, one point off the lead, while Brentford sit fifth, four points behind Middlesbrough after 28 games.

Ryan Fredericks wake-up call

2:30 pm
It happens a lot in cricket when youngsters are paid a decent wage and suddenly they think thye have made it and stop working as hard on their game, the result is they don't progress their careers forward until the penny drops or they leave the game.

Ryan Fredericks wake-up call


Ryan Fredericks isn't the first youngster who has needed a wake-up call, Zeki Fryers was another who needed one as Tim Sherwood pointed out and Fryers has now left the club after failing t progress.

Back in 2012 in a pre-season friendly that Fredericks missed with a knee injury, Middlesbrough thrashed Tottenham U21's 5-0 in Penina in the Algarve region of Portugal. Fredericks credits that game as the wake-up call he needed and determined to get himself out on loan to get some valuable first-team experience.

“I was there at the time but I didn’t play in the game. It didn’t go too well for us and that was the wake-up call that I needed to go out on loan and play some proper football. 
“I was injured at the time, I think I was recovering after fracturing my knee so I was doing re-hab. But even just looking on I could see the difference in size between our lads and the Boro players and the way they played, it was so different I just wanted to go and play proper football.”

Since that game he has been out on loan at Brentford, Millwall and now Middlesbrough where he has been asked to specifically work on his defensive positioning, something Middlesbrough have agreed to help him with. He has settled there really well.

“It’s all open roads and no traffic, which is nice, but it is very different from being back at home. I’ve settled in really well, all the lads are really good here, they’ve take to me really quickly, asked me out for dinner and what not so I’ve been getting on the lads really well and that’s helped me settle quite a lot. 
“This time it’s been easy (to settle), after one or two days I was thinking ‘this is my club’. 
“I thought it might take a few weeks to come in and get a game but I feel like I’m gelling with the team now and know what players can do what and how they like to play so that’s helping me as well. I feel like I’m adapting to the team.”

He has adapted well and instead of being the right-back cover he was signed for he has found himself as first choice right-back with Damia Abella suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury.

“It’s never nice to come into the team that way but sometimes that happens and I suppose it’s his loss and my gain. 
“That’s a nice thing, I haven’t got to think ‘will they keep me on’ from month-to-month. I’m here for the season so I can get my feet under the table and get playing. 
“My aim was to cement a starting place and then show everybody what I can do, to take each game as it comes and do my best in every game I play and whatever comes from that I will have to take. 
“My first game was more about showing I could be trusted to play so I was more playing safe and showing what I can do defensively. 
“But now the games have opened up a bit and I can show what I can do offensively.”

It's an interview that reveals a little of the mind of an up and coming footballer and aspects such as showing I can be trusted are equally as important at first-team level at Tottenham for a new recruit. Fans just expect the best from game one without a thought about any subtleties like proving oneself trustworthy.

Little point showing yourself to be brilliant offensively if you equally show you can't be trusted defensively,depending upon the position you play of course.

Ryan Fredericks was speaking to the local Gazette.

Big season for Fredericks now with Yedlin arrival

6:30 pm
The signing of DeAndre Yedlin raises questions over the future of Kyle Naughton and Ryan Fredericks. The American is the same age as Fredericks but has already played at a World Cup so this now becomes an important season before Yedlin arrives.



Just 19 months ago Yedlin was playing college football, he has just shown American youngsters what can be achieved and in a short space of time. That makes him big news, he is not just an American signing for a Premier League club, he is an American kid fresh out of college signing for a Premier League club.

His approach is refreshing, figuring out that everyone, whoever they are, has a weakness and his role is to find it, then exploit it. That approach has taken him a long way in a short period of time and suggests he may have the right mentality for Tottenham.

The News Tribune quoted Seattle general manager Adrian Hanauer as saying it was a positive move.

“We thought it was ultimately a good decision for our club, although a difficult one. Every club in the world sells players. It’s just a matter of weighing the benefits and the drawbacks, and we decided that this was a good decision for us. And by the way, DeAndre clearly wanted this transaction to occur as well. 
“It provides us with some cash to reinvest in any aspect of our soccer business that we want. Whether that is on the youth side that hopefully allows us to develop two or three or four more DeAndre Yedlins, or designated players, or soccer facilities or infrastructure that hopefully will position us for strength going forward.”

Former Seattle Sounders and Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Kasey Keller also told the News Tribune that he hopes it will be a long and successful association with Tottenham for Yedlin.

“Tottenham is a phenomenal club with phenomenal fans and a great opportunity. But with any big club — it doesn’t matter where you go — you understand that there’s a high level of competition for you to earn your spots, and I have complete confidence that Yedlin has the ability to have a long career wherever, if it happens to be Spurs or someplace else. … As (with) any American going to any club, I just hope it’s the right situation for them, and they have a long and fruitful career at that club.”

I look forward to seeing him in a Tottenham shirt and watching him develop, it does mean that Ryan Fredericks has a season to train hard, step up to the plate and show what he can do by taking whatever chances he is given.


From being a season where you would expect him to get starts and substitute appearances in the Europa League and perhaps push for the back up right-back slot next season, it now throws his Tottenham future into doubt.

Walker, Naughton, Fredericks, Yedlin, next season we are only going to need two unless we are going to ease Yedlin in and he may be too good for that.

Kyle Naughton will surely be off and it could depend upon Fredericks development about Kyle Walker.You would image he is safe but who knows, two up and coming 22-year-olds next season could see us cash in, alternatively Fredericks may have to leave with Naughton.

The pressure is on for Fredericks right now, does he see Yedlin as a threat to his future and will he respond in a positive manner, I guess we'll soon find out.

Players staying out on loan

12:00 pm
Jake Livermore is set to stay at Hull City today after his successful loan spell so far there where he forms a central midfield pairing with former Spurs crowd favourite Tom Huddlestone.

Jake is on a season long loan and Hull City boss Steve Bruce has conformed he is staying at Hull and not being recalled by Spurs. There had been rumours starting to circulate that he would be recalled by Sherwood but they have no foundation.

Loan rules state any club recalling a player has to give 24 hours written notice and we have not given any so we can't recall him.

Another loanee Ryan Fredericks who has been at Millwall on a 93 day loan spell has now extended that until the end of the season. Ian Holloway has been keen to keep him at Millwall and we have been waiting to see our injury situation at the end of the window before we would sanction any deal.

Ryan Fredericks Spurs News
A surprised but delighted Ryan Fredericks
Right back Fredericks was Ian Holloway's first signing after taking charge at Millwall, a club we regularly send players to to develop, Adam Smith, Harry Kane and Andros Townsend immediately spring to mind.

Fredericks has pace and made a flying start to his Championship loan spell scoring the winner in front of his home fans on his debut. He scored the only goal as Millwall beat in form Ipswich Town 1-0 at the New Den.

Ryan put is a cross from the right towards the end of the first half and it evaded everyone ending up in the back of the net as I think his expression shows.
