    It is street football called monkey posts in Nigeria. The goals are small and you need skill to dribble and pass players in a small field area.

    You can see a bit of it in Dele.

    He did. He used to used to travel home with his father a lot. 'Street football' or 'Set' is not registered. It is just a group of boys coming together to play. It is one of the reasons we are good at youth level. It is very easy to start a game in Nigeria - you just need a ball and space with minimum 2 players, shoes or stones can act as the posts. A lot of Dele's skills are from there. You don't need pace although it is useful - you just need to be able to outwit your opponent.

    It is a reason why I get shocked when I see Nigerian male kids who claim never to have played football. The kid must have been very anti social - even ladies play 'street'.

    Sounds exactly the same as when I grew up playing football with mates in England?

    Perhaps - I didnt grow up in England. Wilfred Ndidi mentions about it below wrt the Nigerian environment.

    https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/50827313
    Born in 1996 to a military father, Ndidi grew up in a Lagos barracks. Discipline and education were the priority while football was a passion his father frowned upon.
    "Any time my dad went to work I would go and play," Ndidi said in an interview with BBC World Service.
    "I would then get the signal that he was coming and go back to what I was doing, so he didn't know I'd been playing. I got caught several times but was still going. I love football. I just want to play."
    While many of his Leicester team-mates started their careers in the academies of professional football clubs, Ndidi's football education came on the roads around the military barracks he grew up in.
    "We would wrap sheets of papers up and using Sellotape make it into a ball," he adds. "There was no money to buy footballs.
    "We played on the main road, using two tyres as goals. The big guys were using the good pitch, we had nothing to use and just played on the road."

    At least they’re learning how to shoot, unlike the Belgian kids...

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/f...Tottenhams-Mousa-Dembele-new-Luca-Modric.html

    Mousa Dembele is explaining why he does not score many goals — just six in the Barclays Premier League since joining Fulham in August 2010.

    The Tottenham midfielder takes his time and chooses his words carefully, exhibiting the same calm, unhurried manner and balance with which he plays.

    It’s not a lack of confidence, he says, but a desire to score the right kind of goal; to ‘do it nice and beautiful’. Welcome to the relaxed, laid-back world of Planet Dembele, where time seems to tick at a different pace and style is everything.

    ‘I just like to play, to pass the ball and dribble,’ says the Belgium star. ‘When I was young I never shot. I always wanted to dribble the ball in the goal. I don’t want to shoot because I don’t like to, but it’s different now. You have more experience and you think more.

    ‘Is it about scoring the perfect goal? Yes, maybe. Before I always played on the street with two lampposts that were like a basketball pitch, and we could not shoot. You had to dribble and touch the ball on the posts to score. We never shoot the ball.

    ‘So maybe it’s because I always played on the street and I liked to do it nice and beautiful.’

    It'd be lovely to throw a "Young English talent loaned back to championship club" kind of signing in there ahead of summer and I like what I've heard about Eze despite never having seen him play..You don't want to interrupt his season to halt progress and then the full pre season is around in no time.

    Depending on what we do over the next few days ( potentially very little..) I think we'd then be at a stage of needing maybe one or two experienced first teamers for next transfer window for the really key positions come what may for the rest of this season. As long as we don't lose any one and get the odd contract sorted there would be a good balance with some yoof knocking at the door too.

    Would be somewhat surprised if this happens as Bergwijn seems right around the corner. Not that Mourinho would be against having four quick dribbling wide players in the squad, just that there are other areas more in need of the funding.

    I still think we should be making moves like this (if we have the funds of course).

    Seems an incredible talent and would help bolster our homegrown contingent as well.

    Looking unlikely for this window now but should be keeping an eye.

    Sounds like another excuse for being brick and getting a nose bleed in front of goal. ;)

    Why would he be interested in a sideways move?

    Doesn't mention us in the article, we were linked quite a bit before and people said a deal was close. Think that was pre Mourinho.

    With the signing of Bergwijn and more pressing issues elsewhere on the pitch I imagine if we're interested it's more of a possible interest if we can afford him later in the window when other business is sorted.

    some ITK has been posted on spurs community in the past couple days, looks like it's not gonna happen as Jose don't fancy him -

    Who: Hercules
    When:30/07/20

    Scouts love him
    Daniel Levy loves the deal, as ‘DL deal’ with all the cards we hold with QPR
    Down to if Josè agree. At this point it is unsure if he will give the nod, due to possibilities elsewhere.


    Eze and his family been down to us on more than one occasion. Personally I would be gutted if we allowed him to go elsewhere. Two very obvious deals are close.

    which sounds promising, but then from the same source......

    Eze: I read in forum we weren’t really in for him. Well we were! Josè Mourinho obviously does not share the appetite of scouts and DL, which was a deal up his street. We 400% were seriously in for him. And had Poch stayed, would have been a ‘done deal’ as he liked him a lot. We just have to trust Josè here.

    Well he had to seriously backtrack after saying that it was a done deal last summer or January.
