How do we navigate homegrown quotas?

To start off, whilst the manner of the last 25 mins yesterday was unacceptable, the win itself was decent. A few weeks ago I wasn’t looking forward to playing Wolves, not too sure if they’ve had a bit of a dip or that some of the novelty and freshness of being back in the PL has worn off, but I didn’t expect to lead 3-0 after 60 mins or so.


Onto everyone’s second favourite topic of discussion on here - transfers. A lot has been made of the likes of Dembele, Rose and Alderweireld leaving, and there’s also an increasing demand to have Trippier and Davies ushered to the exit doors. However, the issue we have is the damn homegrown quota

Kane
Dele
Rose
Winks
Trippier
Davies

They are our 6 homegrown players in our squad and because we only have those 6, we are restricted to only having 23 players registered for Europe, which is why Foyth hasn’t been registered.

Apart from the obvious rectifying of nonsensically having 3 non-homegrown keepers in our ranks, I’m scratching my head trying to work out how we can move players on, get players in whilst improving our squad. This would be easier if Levy was prepared to take a loss on Sissoko but that’s unlikely to happen...

I’ve heard names such as Ake, Chilwell or Tierney mentioned as incomings, and we can send Vorm packing and find some token young or veteran homegrown keeper to make up the numbers there, but I’m struggling to think of how we’ll get around this

Do we sacrifice Son or Lamela and pay top dollar for Zaha?
Alderweireld out and fight off all competition for Ake?
Llorente leaves on a free and find a homegrown backup?

Any other ideas or suggestions?

Good article Ledders, but if Spurs are struggling with home grown quotas, I would imagine some of the other teams around us must be even worse off. Spurs have a lot more British players in their ranks than most.

Difference is city, arsenal, Chelsea have a few non British players who count as home grown because they came through the ranks here, and their British players are mainly squad fillers. Where our squad fillers are predominantly foreign players

Is there an other team in the league with 3 non homegrown keeps taking up the quota ffs compare us to arsenal and city especially we have a lot more regular starters who are British/home grown but we seem to be struggling more with this than them guys.

To free up some spots we can sell

Vorm
Nkoudou ( only league )
Llorente
Janssen ( not registered so doesn’t free up a spot )
Dembele
Waynama

Dembele & Waynama needs to be replaced with quality

Llorente & Janssen could be replaced by a young English striker and we would’ve lose anything

Vorm replace by Whiteman or older English gk

Nkoudou doesn’t need replacing.

So doing that even in replacing the CMs with foreign players we’d free up 3 other spots.

We still need to be careful going forward as 3 of our full backs are homegrown and you could argue all could be moved on too.

Obviously the main problem in getting rid of those players is they aren’t worth anything and we’d have to spend our own money which is unlikely at the moment

Good summary Mk

Seeing as we’re incapable of buying foreign talent at 18 and making them homegrown, we basically need to identify a pool of homegrown players to possibly buy, but there really aren’t that many to choose from, and most of which will cost us a relative fortune....

I kinda disagree as I think we have quality young English players. It’s the reason we are winning lots of youth international competitions BUT these players are at big clubs and would cost a fortune to get even at a early age.

Premier league teams just seem very hesitant to play these kids.

We have a few great young players ourselves but most are a few years away from competing for first team.

Much to my disgust spot on from hengy. The full backs, well left back/s would be replaced we'd hope with a homegrown players anyway.

Say if Trippier left spurs still have KWP and Aurier so don't lose anything there.

I’m no Trippier fan, but is there a possibility you’re overrating Walker-Peters if you think he’s as good as Trippier already? I want the squad to be strengthened as opposed to homegrown players just for the sake of it.
