    Looked like Troy embraced him with the hug first. Some lick.

    Better get the hugs in early with Mourinho. His early days are his nicest / best .

    Great news, even if it was just five minutes at the end. So currently we have SIX Premier League forwards! And here's something cool to think about - even if only Connolly, Obafemi and Parrott make it from the group coming through, then we'll be pretty much sorted for strikers until the qualifiers for the 2036 Euros start! Longer if Odubeko's performance for West Ham's U18s today is anything to go by

    Would he have got on if it was 0-0 or 1-0?

    Probably not, but it was the same for Connolly - he came on with a few minutes left when Brighton were 4-0 down to Man City. Mourinho probably took the chance to stick him out there and get a first impression of how he looks in the big league, hopefully with a view to using him a bit more. With any luck he'll get some good time in the FA Cup in the New Year.

    I actually thought the more interesting part of it was that, even though the game was won at half time, he still only gave Parrott five minutes off the bench at the end. Could easily have given him half an hour to take a good look at him at EPL level. Makes me think it might have been more of a ploy to get him to sign a new contract than a suggestion that he's about to get any meaningful game time any time soon. Hopefully he gets a decent run out in the Champions League dead rubber game but even that's not a meaningful game really for Spurs.

    I was hoping Mourinho would give him a longer debut but no harm in a little taste to get the butterflies out (not that Parrott seems the type to be overawed). Then maybe it’s a start in a low stakes game, or 20 minutes while Spurs are comfortable, before earning his stripes from there.

    Bottom line, Mourinho doesn’t strike me as a guy who will play Parrott for political reasons or to get the player to sign a new contract — if he’s giving him any game time, it’s because he’s at least curious to see how he does at this level — the fact Mourinho has that interest is all we can ask for and is hugely encouraging.

    Lucas starts up front. Parrott on bench. Disappointing. Bayern have a pretty strong side out though

    Not too surprising after he only got a token five minutes on Saturday. Hopefully a loan or even a permanent move away from Spurs in January, if he's not getting a decent run out in a dead rubber Champions League game, he hasn't got a hope of getting any decent Premier League game time any time soon.

    If I was him I'd be steering well clear of the rumoured new contract offer.

    If u dont take a new contract then likely he would be totally frozen out for all of next season and a season with no football at 18 would be a bit of a disaster

    If he has a good agent he would be getting a move away sorted out.

    Bringing on Wanyama with a few mins to go when they were losing is vintage Mourinho. Parrott hasn't a hope of getting any sort of regular football while Jose is at that club.

    This. As skstu would do.

    I'd be worried of him falling down the leagues, but he does look like one that has the ability to rise above that.

    Only a day or two ago we heard rumours of german interest. Go To Europe Troy!

    Yeah, easy to bash Mourinho but he's given Parrott more PL minutes in his two weeks at the club than Poch had anyway. Disappointing last night but Mourinho has more to consider than appeasing Ireland fans!

    I'm basing my opinion on Mourinhos history. He doesnt trust young players. With Poch I did have some hope that he would be used eventually. The 5 mins Mourinho gave him points more towards Mourinho trying to look good which is what he always trys to do early days to win over the fans.

    I think that narrative about Mourinho is overplayed, not that it's untrue of course, but I think it's the same for most top managers who have taken over big clubs, where the remit is to win, win, win. Look at Guardiola at Man. City, Fodan gets a sniff every now and again and that's about it, even after impressing. Klopp has pretty much assembled a fully purchased XI at Liverpool, bar Alexander-Arnold. I didn't see too much criticism for him not using Ben Woodburn for example, an exciting forward in the same mold as Parrott.

    Mourinho brought McTominay in out of nowhere, and continued to play Rashford consistently even with Ibrahimovic/Lukaku in the team. I think it'd take an injury crisis of significant proportions for Parrott to see proper game time at Tottenham in the near future, regardless of who the manager is. At least Mourinho has shown that he's on his radar though, I doubt he'd waste a sub option just to 'look good', not really his style regardless of it being early or late in his tenure.

    I think we should wait and see if Troy gets time in the Cup before writing off his chances under Mourinho.
