'Bring out a DVD', 'Genius' - Tottenham fans buzzing after 9-0 thrashing of Arsenal
Tottenham fans are buzzing on social media after the U18s, under the guidance of Scott Parker, wiped the floor with Arsenal by hammering their North London rivals 9-0.
Reo Griffiths was the star of the show, helping himself to four goals and three assists in the victory, while Rodel Richards and Dilan Kumar Markanday both registered a brace each and David Markanday rounded off the rout.
The Gunners won the previous fixture 6-0 against the Lillywhites back in November last year making the turnaround all the more astonishing.
Reactions from fans ranged wanting the club to bring out a DVD on the victory and others felt that had they featured against Manchester United in last weekend’s FA Cup, the result could have been different.
Whatever the case may be, it looks as though Spurs have a bright future with some of the talents coming through the youth team.
First-team manager Mauricio Pochettino has already stated that he would be prepared to field the kids in next season’s cup competition to avoid criticism over the club’s lack of silverware.
