The Spurs fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to their young striker, Reo Griffiths who scored a hat-trick for the club’s U18 side against Norwich today. The 17-year-old has been prolific for the club in the U18 Premier League, scoring an incredible 19 goals in just 17 appearances. The youngster’s form has prompted a number of fans to urge the club to include him in the senior squad in the coming games.

The Spurs fans propping our bar up have been enjoying a very successful season this year. The Lilywhites find themselves sitting fourth in the league table and ten points clear of 5th placed Chelsea. Champions League football is pretty much guaranteed for the North London club as they continue to fight in the league for a 3rd or even 2nd placed finish.
The Lilywhites also have a very strong chance of winning their first major honour in ten years in the coming months. Mauricio Pochettino’s side faced Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-finals in just over two weeks time at Wembley. The last time the sides met at Wembley, it took Spurs just ten seconds to take the lead and they never looked back from there, giving Spurs fans hope that they can beat United and take a step to ending their trophy doubt.
Taking that into account, here are our resident Lilywhites’ opinions on young Reo Griffiths:
Get this lad on the bench
