    So with Jose we have won 3 out of 4. If we keep this up we'll end up on 74 points. Enough for 4th?

    As is his book ‘45’. An absolute legend. If he’d done nothing else but bring us The Bunnymen that would have been enough, but he’s done much else that’s great besides.

    Just watched a vid, and we've been described as Alicia Keys FC - "this Spurs is on fire" and described burnley as mandingo 'you thought you had all the long balls in the world'

    My word, made me laugh, what a great day

    A fit again Dier returning to form is obviously massive for us. I think we've seen against West Ham and Burnley in particular how important a strong (and tall) DM can be against long hoofballs.

    I think how he's valued has been because of his poor form, a large part of that has been because of injury and illness.

    He will definitely be here beyond December.

    The problem is that Wanyama seems beyond his peak and massively plagued with injuries. So we need another option there at some point in case of injuries to Dier and for rotation. Unless Skipp is seen as that player, but I'm not sure he fits as the DM for Mourinho.

    Question is if Dier makes himself a clear first choice, meaning we can get a younger/backup player for him (assuming the above to be true). If Dier hadn't started showing clear signs of returning to form we might have looked for a different first choice, if successful that could have left Dier with little game time and struggling to find form.

    I agree. Just to add to this we already had a squad just about completely void of luxury players or players unwilling to work hard or learn. A squad ready made for Mourinho to come in and do his thing.

    The jury is still out on Moura defensively, but he showed against Burnley that he might just step up.

    If he was stiff before kickoff, what was he like after Son's goal?

    Thought we were very very good yesterday from the off. Was impressed with Kane, Son, Moura and Toby. Most of the others did well.

    But Dier, Aurier, Sanchez and Gazza were weak links and better teams would have punished their mistakes. Aurier was particularly disappointing after some decent performances. He kept diving in unnecessarily. Dier gave some balls away in dangerous positions and was lucky to get away with it. He did some good things too to be fair.

    But these are the margins between being winners and being glorious failures. While yesterday was much better, even allowing for a very poor Burnley performance, we are still carrying some passengers.

    A very encouraging display.
    Everyone played well, apart from Aurier.
    I was expecting him to have a brain fart at any moment.
    Great energetic start, straight from the starting blocks.
    Can we PLEASE do this every game, Home or Away.

    And Sissoko was GREAT. :)
    Hit the post and scored a very good goal.
    A good showing from him.

    BTW. Interesting stat.
    Apart from from Kane and our AMs, ( Son, Alli, Lucus & Lamela )
    Sissoko and Ndombele have the best scoring record.
    Both with 2 goals and 1 assist.
    Not too be bad eh.;)
