As a Spurs fan, there was very little to be happy about while watching the football this weekend but while it was had to take any comfort from the 3-3 draw with West Brom, if you had watched QPR v Notts Forest then you might have been impressed by one current Spurs player in particular.
Tom Carroll drew very few headlines in a game where his Rangers teams won by five goals to two and that’s more than just a little harsh when you consider that he provided assists for all of the first three. We all knew that Carroll was one of the best passers in the club but what is more noticeable now is his ability to pick out a target with a first time ball on a consistent basis.
To credit Tom with an assist for the first may be a little generous and his shooting is an area to work on but the spell at Loftus Road has clearly been beneficial.
“Tom Carroll is certainly one who will come back into the squad next season because he’s good enough for Tottenham,” said Tim Sherwood at the end of last month. That decision might not be down to Tim but hopefully those that remain will make the new coach aware of Carroll’s progress.
