Tottenham’s kids gain revenge for Carabao Cup defeat at Colchester with EFL Trophy shoot-out win as cheeky fans call for Spurs to release a DVD

The Sun Sports 1 month ago

TOTTENHAM’S kids have gained a slice of revenge on Colchester just a fortnight after Mauricio Pochettino’s seniors were humiliated by the League Two minnows.

The U’s famously dumped the Premier League giants out of the Carabao Cup last month on penalties after holding the North London side to a goalless draw.

But Spurs’ U21s held their nerve tonight from the spot as they travelled to the scene of that upset in the EFL Trophy.

Colchester looked like they were about to inflict more misery on Tottenham after Luke Norris gave them the lead.

However, Tashan Oakley-Boothe’s second half strike was enough to earn a draw in the Group A clash – which ensured a shoot-out to determine who would earn an additional point.

But despite the hosts featuring five of the side that became cup heroes two weeks’ ago, it was the visitors, managed by Wayne Burnett, that triumphed 6-5 after sudden death as Brandon Comley fired wide for Colchester.

And as Spurs announced the final result on Twitter, that led to much mocking from rival supporters while others demanded that Poch call-up the youngsters to the first-team after they achieved what their elders could not.

One fan responded: “Sack the first team and replace them with these lads.”

Another wrote: “Play them all v watford. At least they care.”

A fellow fan commented: “PROMOTE THEM IMMEDIATELY.”

As another said: “Start them next Saturday please.”

However, not everyone was as positive as the mickey-takers were also out in force.

“Announce DVD, we’ve managed a win against the mighty Colchester,” said one response.

Any asked: “Is it true the spurs development squad will take on Bayern’s first team next week followed by Brighton?”

As another simply summed up by writing: “That’s typical Spurs.”
