Scoring more? Against who? You think you will play against West Ham and Bournemouth every weekend? :rotf: :rotf:
With time that defense will get better.


No it wont! Remember I have been telling you this for more than a year. The issue is not the tactics or the system. the issue is that your defenders are bad. They have fancy names and are very talented players, but they are very bad defenders. You cant coach that. They need to be replaced.

If Mourinho is so stupid to give Vert and Alderweireld a contract, then he is not ready to succeed.
They keep tiring out towards the end of matches and that is a fitness issue.
It is NOT a fiteness issue. Thats a lie and excuse told by Mourinho in order not to hurt their feelings. West ham, Olympiakos and Bournemouth players are made of wood abi? They dont get tired too?

It is tiredness that made Sissoko refuse to put in a serious challenge on Danjuma leading to the second goal? Or tiredness that made Vert forget to track Wilson for the second goal?

No let Mourinho deceive you my friend. He is just trying to be supportive to players who are very bad in defending.
What he may want to do going forward is once he gets his 3 goal lead


Dude! You aint getting 3 goals every week!! WTH???!! WHere is this arrogance coming from? Where you getting 3 goals every week under Poch?? You think you'll be playing Olympiakos and West Ham and Bournemouth every week?
switch up the game by bringing on DMers rather than attackers.
You ended the game with Sissoko, Winks and Dier.
Hopefully Hugo will be back in January and that defense will help too.
You know what I think of Hugo.

You guys need to force-buy the Schalke keeper instead of waiting for him to be free in the summer and also buy Koulibaly (Napoli). You gotta be honest and ruthless.
This is one of the reasons Poch wanted to get rid of them.
Mourinho won’t tolerate crap from Toby and Jan in defence.
If Levy wants trophies and Top 4, he will need to spend money on new defenders..

No problem, Wednesday or Saturday we will still score our customary 3 goals and concede another 2.

There was a communication issue between GK and the defenders hence why clueless defending in the last three games. This is not good enough to get top 4 and goal difference could play a huge part by the end of the season.

I am intrigued by IAG's arrogance. Is it because Mourinho is your coach?

He’s not the only one. Some Spurs supporters think like him. I don’t know if it’s arrogance or not but you know Mourinho was not happy with those goals conceded today and we cannot perform like this against United in midweek. The way Gazza and Sanchez dont talk in these games shows you that the defence is still shite. Ndombele failed to communicate with the defenders in which that lead to the goal Wilson scored from that free kick. Mourinho will want his players to communicate effectively to win games as a team and keep clean sheets as a team.

Spurs always lacked that ruthless killer instinct - that’s why I despised Levy for not using that mentality for the last 20 years as he is more of an articulate chairman than that clown Alan Sugar. I’m pleased Mourinho can define that identity in this football club since 1984.

Don't mistake my sarcasm for arrogance. Anybody happy with how we haven't been able to stop the opposition from scoring will need their head examined. It is a problem that has been there for a while now and it is going to take some time to correct. We have recorded a number of 2-2 draws this season and it often comes after we go 2 goals up. The difference this time is that we have been able to get an extra insurance goal the last 3 matches to ensure victory is obtained.

For those doubting it is fatigue that is the major contributing factor go back and watch the matches again, this and against West Ham. We controlled the match much more effectively in the first 75 minutes and closed the spaces far better but afterwards the energy used in that first 75 minutes just disappears as the opposition tend to press us. Ball retention becomes non-existent. We become a team that is not recognizable.

This issue could have been a result of Poch's training tactics that has emphasis punishing drilling regime that has sapped their energy. Hopefully they will recover soon enough and be able to play with the same intensity for 90 minutes rather just 3/4 they are managing right now.

It be like say Pochettino never learn. The way he unsettled the team by not being firm/straight forward about joining another club and demanding his players show loyalty - he never learn. Thank God for Levy's clause.

The 12 million? Thats chicken change for any club. They spend so much more than that on average players. If he wants to go to any club, the club will pay it for him.

I think Moura has a role to play under Jose maybe even more so than Son.
After the Bournemouth game I take this back.

I was going to respond to you but forgot! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Like I said, Son is on another level. No coach with a brain will even consider dropping him, talkless of dropping him for the brainless Moura.

I believe Moura was rested for the United game, as he destroyed United the last time they played there. However, I expect Mourinho to purchase a much better winger and relegate Moura to a benchwarmer after the Mercato -- most likely summer mercato.

I saw a more rounded game than usual, it wasn't one of his best performances but it was promising as it showed that he can play multiple roles in this team.

This is going to be the hardest challenge into JoMo's early reign in charge of Spurs. Going back to his old stumping ground Jose has a big incentive to do well to show his former employer that they were wrong to get rid of him. ManU's Ole on the other hand needs a victory to calm the waters over his job. It will be interesting to see who will come on top at end of 90 minutes. One thing though Tottenham is in high spirits including Mourinho as they are all fighting with determination while ManU are low on confidence as they just can't seem to find a way to win.
