Jonah Bale strikes again
at 18:42 18 Oct 2020

I remember the first two seasons he was at Spurs they never won a league game with Bale in the team. I can't recall a jinx like it. Now, it looks like he's jinxing them again. Spurs were 3-0 up when he came on and then conceded 3 goals.

Looks like we have some great young prospects in the Academy, including Goran Babic and Sam Bellis.

Goran Babic
at 15:13 12 Oct 2020

"Southampton have no shortage of academy graduates to be proud of.

The youth set-up at Staplewood has produced Matt Le Tissier, Alan Shearer, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Gareth Bale.

And it has also contributed to Ralph Hasenhuttl's current side with Jack Stephens and James Ward-Prowse both climbing the ranks to the first team.And the likes of Michael Obafemi and Will Smallbone are both waiting in the wings to become stars themselves.

So who is the next big thing to roll off the production line? Please welcome, Goran Babic.

The 17-year-old central midfielder has been named on the Guardian's illustrious 'Next Generation' list for 2020 which identifies 20 of the very best teenage talents at Premier League clubs each season.

The Serbian-born wonderkid made the step up to full-time training with the club's Under-18s side back in September and has continued to impress during his early season performances. Like any Saints academy graduate, you can guarantee that he is bursting with technical ability.

Babic loves a tackle and, above all, he loves to win. There are shades of James Ward-Prowse about him in the set-piece execution and the way that he picks up the ball and drives at the opposition box."

Brilliant documentary.

A lot of the BLM stuff in sport makes me cringe but Ian Wright gets it exactly right in this documentary.

Some like it hot

"BBC weather reporter Carol Kirkwood was left red-faced on Monday morning when she was broadcasting live from Greenwich Park in London on what is set to be another scorching day in the UK. Unfortunately for Kirkwood, she managed to say a word that not many people would expect to hear at 07:58 am on the first morning of the week. She said:

"Good morning everybody and Greenwich Park is one of the oldest and enclosed of the Royal parks and look at it; fabulous, the sun is beating down. We've seen lots of doggers."
