My piece on talented and unpredictable Spurs Academy winger Romaine Mundle, his 2021/22 season and my hopes for him during the new season:

Romaine Mundle has had some really good games during the course of 2022, so far. The 19 year old winger who is capable of playing on either flank, is a very direct and skilful winger, who in my opinion has made great strides since joining the club full-time in the summer of 2019. The Edmonton born second year professional has a great change of pace, and his ball control and skill on the ball is very, very good. A very reliable player on the ball, Romaine made 18 competitive for Spurs’ Development side last season, providing one assist. Romaine also made the bench on one occasion for the Spurs first team in competitive competition, and he also featured for the Spurs first team in a pre-season friendly against Leyton Orient, last pre-season. I thought that the now second year professional got better and better during the 2021/22 season, as it went on. And during the second half of last season, the winger had some very good games.

In Premier League 2 games in 2022, against Arsenal (away), West Ham United (away) and Derby County (away), Romaine Mundle had in my opinion very good games. Playing the game with real confidence, the winger is very direct with the ball, and he is always looking to go past the full-back, although he is also very unpredictable in his play, and he does like to test the goalkeeper from distance. In the Premier League 2 fixture away to West Ham, last season, he was undoubtedly Spurs’ best player in that game. Showing great skill on the ball, with his very clever turns on the ball, he made it very difficult for the West Ham defenders, during that game. Providing a really good number of assists for the Spurs Under 18 side in his second year of scholarship with Spurs, Romaine Mundle stepped up well to the Spurs Development side, and he made a really good impression on a number of games that he was involved in last season. I’m also sure that he will get a good amount of goals and assists for the Spurs Under 21 side, in the very near future.

Also capable of playing in the CAM role and in central midfield, Romaine impressed during the first half of the Spurs Under 21’s most recent pre-season friendly, against Leyton Orient. He is so good with the ball in tight spaces, and his link-up play and awareness for his teammates, is also very good. I hope that Romaine gets a really good number of games for the Spurs Under 21 side this season, and I am sure that he will continue to impress for the Spurs Development side during the new season. I would like to wish Romaine all the very best of luck for the start of the new season with Spurs’ Under 21 side, and hopefully he will be involved with the squad for their next pre-season friendly, which is against Bromley on Wednesday.
