Spurs expert John Wenham has been left raving over Tottenham Hotspur prospect Mikey Moore after the 15-year-old scored an ‘absolutely ridiculous’ goal for the club’s Under-18s.
Wenham spoke with Football Insider about how the youngster is getting along. So far, it’s looking very promising for him.
It appears the striker’s stock is only rising, with two goals against Charlton Athletic in a 5-1 win in the Premier League Cup.
Wenham believes that things are looking up for the Spurs youth side, citing a big win against Marseille in the UEFA Youth League as particularly important.
He stated: “Mikey Moore scored two in that game against Charlton, he is someone I said I will be talking about a lot more.
“One of the goals was absolutely ridiculous as well. He is on such a positive trajectory as a 15-year-old being selected to play at a higher level and contributing massively in those games.
“That is really pleasing, for me. It was great to see Jamie Donley get on the scoresheet as well, it’s been a little while since he scored, so that was great for him.”
TIF Thoughts on John Wenham’s comments…
We believe that Tottenham could be on the verge of developing an exciting bunch of youth talent. Especially Moore, as one his goals against Charlton was an absolute corker.
For a forward to be playing that well at only 15 years old is incredible. He’s playing with players around him who are likely a bit older than him, indicating he could be the real deal.
The fact that someone who follows the club as intensely as Wenham is singing his praises is a very good sign. Furthermore, it appears the youth side are making positive signs in the right direction.
This could be a gamechanger for Spurs. The club may be able to generate some homegrown talent, potentially saving them from having to spend money on new players – and given they had their eye on their homegrown quota over the summer, this would not be before time.
In addition, they can make a potential profit on these players and use that cash to strengthen and improve their squad, so we agree that the outlook is bright at Hotspur Way.
