    I don't think that ADSY is Belgian

    Well he seems to be saying the right things about the loan destination. Ok, I know it’s probably just from a PR team, but it strikes the right chord
    (From Football London) :

    Edwards though is now looking forward to playing in the Dutch Eredivisie and feels that his playing style is suited to the league.
    "When I heard about the interest I did not have to think about it for a long time," a delighted Edwards said
    "I have been following the Dutch Eredivisie for some time and I think that football fits me here. I honestly did not know much about Excelsior, but I looked up a few things and what I read really appealed to me.
    "I still have to meet everyone, but I already feel welcome. There is a great atmosphere at this club."

    Let’s hope he gains the maturity to make it a successful loan. As much for himself as for Spurs.

    Indeed. Will he turn up at 8am and excitedly start learning how to say "pleased to meet you" in Dutch, or will he swagger in at 10.01 with gold headphones on, saying "clean my boots, Poirot"?

    I thought he was Dutch. Like Vertonghan.

    Sounds like it could be a very good move. Probably needs to properly stand out in the Dutch league at this point though.

    Yes, that's my concern as well. Only Matic at Vitesse has succeeded on loan in the Eredivisie to such an extent that he also (sort of) made it back in the Premier League - and he first had to prove himself at Benfica for that.

    Just playing regularly would be a good start. He's never played first team competitive games week in and out. Just needs to do the basics well every week, more than try to stand out, and his natral skill with add plenty of spice. When is their next game? Can see Spurs fans having a second team this year if he's starting.

    We should've sent him on loan to QPR until Christmas so that he could pick up the language from McClaren first.

    You sure? Doesn't say he came on on Livescore.

    Livescore is useless. Even my local Norwegian newspapers live update is more reliable.

    Looked like he did quite allright. Holds on to the ball for too long, but probably a bit too eager to impress. Got around his man a few times, and almost got an assist though. Hope he takes his chance there!

    Not a bad contribution for only 10 minutes on the pitch Hoping this'll be the making of him and he can go on to be a first team regular for us.

    He's so small! But a handful. Could have had a assist and a pen.
