    I'm pleased to see that Spurs have decided to participate in this competition. I strongly believe that one of Redknapp's worst decisions was to withdraw the reserve side as this left the fringe players with nothing remotely approaching a competitive game for weeks or even months on end. Then when called upon due to injury they were hopelessly out of touch.

    Premier League confirms U21 fixtures & teams

    The over-age allowance of three outfield players & a goalkeeper should help keep the fringes ticking over nicely.

    What a fantastic idea. Gives the young players who think they are ready for 1st team a chance to actuallu show their manager what they can do in what seems it will be a competitive league which will generate alot of.interest.

    Will it stop clubs loaning out some of its talented youngsters?
