Hi, everybody! We only just found about this, but it’s pretty neat and we thought we’d share it with you.
Today (actually RIGHT NOW), Tottenham’s U23 team is playing Southampton’s U23s in a Premier League 2 match. Since it’s being streamed on YouTube, it means we can embed it in a post for you to watch without having to leave the cozy confines of Cartilage Free Captain.
Here’s Tottenham’s lineup for those who are interested.

The lineup is sadly lacking in the Marcus Edwards and Samuel Shashoua department, but it will give you hopefully a good look at Kyle Walker-Peters at right back, as well as Anton Walkes, who made his full Tottenham debut on Wednesday against Gillingham. Shiloh Tracey, whom Spurs signed last January, also starts the match along with Wheeler Dealer Radio’s favorite Tottenham goalkeeper Tom Glover.
It’s rare when we get to actually watch the youth team in action, so enjoy! Post your reactions in the comments
