“Unseen”: Alasdair Gold shares what’s “taking place” at Tottenham right now


Reliable Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold has lifted the lid on something “largely unseen” and exciting going on at Spurs right now, concerning their set-up.

What’s the latest Spurs news?

Ange Postecoglou, the new manager, moved from SPFL powerhouse Celtic to north London over the summer, and he has so far disproved his detractors.

Following Antonio Conte’s unfortunate final season in command of Tottenham, Postecoglou is demonstrating a thrilling, engaging new kind of football.

The Lilywhites have brilliantly equaled last season’s Triple-Champions Man City in Premier League scoring with 11 goals in their first four games.

Spurs have won three games in that period, going undefeated. After drawing 2-2 with Brentford on the opening day, they went on to defeat Man United and Bournemouth by scores of 2-0 each.

Their thunderous 5-2 triumph over Burnley at Turf Moor was their most spectacular win thus far under Postecoglou. In fact, right before the international break in Lancashire, Son Heung-min’s hat-trick, James Maddison’s exquisite curling effort, and a screamer from Cristian Romero sealed a statement three points.

Postecoglou gave a detailed explanation of why he won’t be giving up his thrilling style of play any time soon in an interview with Sky last month, stressing the necessity to amuse the crowd.

Postecoglou remarked, “That’s the beauty of our game.

“The beauty of football is that there are so many different ways to win, so many different ways to set up your team, so many different methods to deal with the opposition.

We can both succeed in this game even though I’m definitely at one extreme and others are at the other.

There is a relationship between that style of play and entertainers, especially with a football club like this one that has continually sought that out in its teams.

The Spurs first team have come on leaps and bounds over the last few weeks, but away from Postecoglou’s men, reporter Gold says there is something “largely unseen” and exciting going at Hotspur Way right now.

Indeed, beneath the Tottenham boss, Gold writes on X and for that there appears to be a “revolution taking place” concerning the N17 academy set up.

New youth signing Luka Vuskovic, who will apparently come to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in 2025 when he hits 18, looks set to become another one Spurs’ exciting young crop currently turning heads.

According to Gold, there are a number of young people to keep an eye on, including Aflie Dorrington, Jamie Donley, Brooklyn Lyons-Foster, Josh Keeley, Luca Gunter, Ashley Phillips, Mikey Moore, Callum Olusesi, Oliver Irow, Tyrese Hall, Matthew Craig, and George Abbott.

In addition to a renewed conviction in the talent emerging at Tottenham, new academy head Simon Davies has been tasked with synchronizing the system to the first team. That doesn’t even take into account the potential of adolescents like Alfie Devine and Dane Scarlett who are now on loan.

As a result, Gold continues by saying that Spurs’ prospects seem excellent both above and below the surface.
