    I don't care what Poch asked for. We needed a striker and we know we didn't end up with one and again there's no excuse I find acceptable for that from the chairman.

    None.

    The last bolded bit is what we as fans are hoping but inexplicably ENIC seem to be gambling on too..which is as wishful as Danny Rose being diplomatic:p

    Totally agree mate. The board have been here 20 years, the seems to be a lack of clear direction at the club.

    If we had got Eddie Howe in, although i dont think he is good enough i could see what we were trying to do. But im justnot sure if the is any plan above getting the best manager on paper to manage the team.

    To beat so many rivals with bigger spend then others with similar spend we need to think and plan better.

    I'm fairly certain Jose said pre-Rona that we didn't need major signings, just the correct signings to compliment the already top level players we have (its in the doc pre-Rona).

    Therefore for me he is pretty much operating on the budget he signed up for. He doesn't seem to be targeting an Eriksen replacement and we instead signed another wide player in Bergwijn....are we letting that slide?

    Do you not believe that ENIC we’re going to change their strategy though now that we had £££ coming in?
    People keep on saying their MO needed to change and it looked clear that was the plan but everyone sights what we were doing whilst building the ground

    Doesn't that say everything? Another manager says they need x and instead get z lol

    Again, no point signing Jose is you are going to carry one doing such things...

    The club misjudged the level the squad was at when they sacked Poch and appointed Mourinho - it's as simple as that. Had they been correct and the squad was still at the level it was previously then appointing Mourinho makes a bit more sense (if you believe he isn't a spent force himself) also as Bedfordspurs says, last season before covid and fully in the new stadium we started to drop money again, so again the appointment makes more sense if that sort of budget is what we were to be operating with.

    They got the two decisions wrong (Squad is fudged and Mourinho is not the manager he was) and to compound that the pandemic hit sending an already risk averse chairmain in to over drive.

    To a degree yes we started spending more money i can see that. I just dont get the Mourinho appointment and im not one of those who thinks he is finished, if we were not in Europa league i think we would finish quite highly...

    But the key point is, where is the quote of Jose calling the players lazy? Before you freak out you have a take a second to check through the info, otherwise your ire isn’t quite as valid.

    You could put forward a case against Jose for not having a creative player in the front four....The subs.......Shifting Sissy about as if he is the master key....All of these things, go to town on it. Half reading reactionary headline and going full Karen on Facebook just brings down the quality level in terms of posts.

    This may be getting a bit like trying to fix BedfordSpurs’ their/ they’re issue but I’d like you to prove me wrong haha

    Levy will never change, it's not a money thing. It's an approach and his approach has always been consistent.

    Did he? Ok so he signed up for something where he wasn't always going to be given the players he wanted.

    In my opinion....When Levy came knocking, Jose probably looked at the squad, - Kane, Dele, Son, Ndom, Lo Celso, Davinson, Dier, Toby, Davies and maybe a couple of others and thought he'd be able to get a tune out of those + whoever is added (under the transfer strategy of the club).

    You've got to look at his behaviour. It's not just based on the quote in isolation. He's tried to hire him before. In the doc, heavily sanitised as it is, he's almost starstruck by Mourinho. He hired the guy and fired someone who he had a lot of time for and that the majority of the fan base loved in order to do it. He's also said he believes Jose is a top coach.

    Everything points to Levy believing strongly in Mourinho as a winner.

    This is the thing. Whatever it is Jose is being paid to is not working so far. It seems to me a direct repeat of his Utd debacle but with less resources at hand in terms of spend and personnel.

    9 months in and we do not look like a good side and the players aren't doing it for him.

    Has anyone seen his approach in episode 7 of all or nothing. The way he talks them through the stuff on screen is coaching 101. The players physical traction though and lack of push back was a worry though

    Planning to watch it later. Any good?

    F**king shambolic, gutless performance on the first day of the season doesn't dampen our desire for all things Tottenham. There's a Stockholm Syndrome element to our support of this f**king club. We're doomed to failure but we just can't let it go.

    It’s the same as the rest
    A fluff piece
    A few standouts
    Vorm says he hasn’t played and didn’t expect to play vs Norwich
    Jose told Winks don’t go wide in case we lose the ball... so defence first
