    Jose doesn’t give minutes for sentiment so he must be pleased with Clarke in training. Still hard to see where he fits in though, the wide positions are stocked so who’s role is he competing for?

    Maybe he's so thin, you assume he is taller than a stockier guy of the same height. But yeah he did look 6'. Hopefully will add some muscles this year.

    I thought that too at the time; I remember Andros Townsend smashing one top bins against Shamrock Rovers, and he tried to do it again 5 times in every game from there onwards.

    Thought he did ok to be honest and as others have said it was a pity his shot was blazed over. As for his prospects here again as other have said he has a few players in front of him for the wide positions so it will not be easy for him

    Tbf he also did it on his debut in January 2011 when he produced an absolute blinder against Charlton in the FA Cup 3rd round and was named MotM. I remember being surprised and disappointed (!) the way Harry swiftly deflated both Townsend and the inevitable media hype calling for him to be given a run in the first team by saying dismissively he would be going straight back out on loan to a Championship side. :D

    Ooh I used to love a dingdong Brush. It's been so long since I last had a brush with a big strong goalie, trying hard to rise up to the challenge but receiving a knee in the chest instead.

    How times have changed, thank GHod they didn't video decisions back then.



    Tottenham were knocked out of the Europa League, despite a comfortable victory over Shamrock Rovers in Dublin.

    Goals from Steven Pienaar, Andros Townsend, Jermain Defoe and Harry Kane sealed the win, but Rubin Kazan's 1-1 draw against PAOK Salonika rendered Spurs' efforts futile.

    The result in Greece meant Tottenham could not progress, no matter how many goals they scored against Rovers but, after making nine changes to his starting line-up, Harry Redknapp will be pleased with the performance of his fringe players.

    Youngster Townsend caught the eye on the wing, with his fantastic goal capping a classy performance, while Danny Rose continued his rapid development with an assured display at full-back.

    Needing above all to score goals, Tottenham were razor-sharp in the final third, but they did enjoy some luck at the other end of the pitch as both Jake Livermore and Carlo Cudicini escaped red cards for bringing down Rovers players when they were through on goal.

    Pienaar's opening goal came against the run of play, and there was an element of luck about it as the midfielder's angled shot took a deflection off James Paterson to beat Richard Brush in the Rovers goal.

    There was nothing fortunate about the second goal with Defoe laying it off for Townsend, who placed a first-time shot into the top corner from the edge of the area.

    Once they had secured their foothold in the game, Spurs set about boosting their goal difference to overhaul Rubin Kazan in the Group A table.

    And once Defoe turned his marker on the stroke of half-time to score a third goal, set up by Townsend, the improbable suddenly became possible.

    Unfortunately for the visitors, 10-man Rubin Kazan equalised in Greece early in the second half to take Spurs' fate out of their own hands.

    Did you know?
    Shamrock Rovers named former Spurs midfielder Rohan Ricketts on the bench, but he remained an unused substitute

    Regardless, they continued to pile forward and were given a reprieve early in the second half when Livermore hauled down Karl Sheppard when the striker was through on goal - only to breathe a sigh of relief when the referee waved play on.

    They might have scored a fourth when Sandro's shot hit the past after a defensive mix-up, before another decision went Tottenham's way - Oman was through on goal and brought down by Cudicini, but the Italian was spared conceding a pelanty and red card by the linesman's flag.

    Both sides traded half-chances as the game became stretched in the final 10 minutes, most notably when Iago Falque hit the post from long range, before 18-year-old striker Kane spun his marker in the final minute of the match to score his first goal for the north London club.

    However, it mattered very little to Redknapp's men, who will now hope their elimination helps a sustained title challenge in the Premier League while their rivals - the two Manchester clubs, Arsenal and Chelsea - continue to battle it out on the continent.

    This guy is more of a future left than Sessegnon.

    This is a good move. I think that he's got a lot of potential but he needs games. Let's hope he gets them there after his last couple of loans.

    I must admit i have not watched Stoke for a while but they have never really been a team that encourages skill, long ball and chase is the normal. Maybe they have changed?

    Doubt it under Michael O’Neill. Good manager who gets results but it’s not pretty.

    I’ve been unimpressed by Clarke. Not writing him off, he’s not had enough chances yet, but he’s looked very lightweight for me.

    I don't really mind skilful, young attacking players going to such teams. They have to learn to fight for the team first and foremost which is good for them. The player will still get chances to show their ability on the ball as well.

    You can see why Jose thinks it will be a good grounding for him...
