    20/21 PL: TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR v Fulham

    And of course Jose biggest achievement in the change in attitude and performance of our most expensive then flop...Ndombele. He still rarely plays a whole game...Jose still working and developing him. Now lots of fans must acknowledge that!!!!!!

    This story rears it's ugly head on a regular basis. Personally I think there's no way Jose wants this guy back. He could have stayed and waited to see how things developed with Mourinho taking over but he preferred to get out. That will dig deep with the manager and I just cannot see him accepting him back into the fold. I was appreciative of his overall contribution to the club but his final few months were an embarassment for everyone and his lacklustre performances were an insult to the rest of the team. No thanks !!

    It's not polite to use the word thrashing but 3 or 4 goals is on the cards. The only word of caution is they have had a good first win in the premiership and confidence will be high and beware the variables. Luck,Bad Luck,Aurier,VAR. Our stuttering run needs to get back on target.

    Yes let's just hope it works out that we Gotta Go Out fighting early in the second half to stop putting ourselves Under Pressure especially when only one goal up we've got to go for the kill early I think when we've got two goals ahead we can be confident we won't be stupid enough hopefully to let in two, we just need to stay aggressive stay on the front foot for 90 minutes or Plus encouraging teams to come out as the worst thing we've done surely if he looks at those games that we cocked up that's what happened we invited pressure got it and the other teams deserve the goals

    Yes mate I have many a time I was in the get ndembele out of our team camp until he turned it around and actually grafted the way dele should have done. Again we will probably never know until Mourinho might leave one day but was the turnaround of ndembele down to Mourinho or did he just finally wake up and say hang on a minute I need to change I can work with this team and I'm going to graft now. Fitness crap about him not going out of the 90 minutes shouldn't really wash now unless he was taken by covid he's getting paid a lot of money to be fit on that pitch. He's proven it now for at least 80 of minutes I just think jose only has another plan to swap him out with what we've got sitting on the bench and then ndembele just was to be the man that gets taken off, when you my opinion should always be Winks and he should be getting splinters on his ass unless we really need it for the last 5 minutes inStead of not bringing on the flare midfielders that will actually change a game earlier

    You make some good points and I agree with a lot of what you say. All us fans will have opposite views on player developement. For me Moura wasn't first choice for the CL Final and hasn't been since. I have said before last Summers transfer window was I believe the best in decades, not for expensive star buys but for quality value for money. The start of the rebuild of the Mourinio squad.. I won't list them all but I believe there have been definate improvements in Son,Dier,Davies,Sissoko,Winks,Tanganga,Skipp, Dele, White, Devine and no doubt others. Jose has been in charge 13 months, no time at all in the organising and running of a premiership club. I am sure Jose does deserve some criticism but also he has done good things and I am not sure he gets a fair crack of the whip. He will never be liked by some Spurs fans which may change as Cups and League standings improve. Either way I imagine the Club are very happy with him and the progress we have made so far.

    Decided to post a Match Thread now so we can read everyone's comments and views well before kick off and team news. Typically for us they get their first league win of the season just before we play them. Regardless of that this should still be a comfortable 3 points for us and anything less I'll consider as failure. My scoreline would be 0-2. Your thoughts ??

    Mourinho Caught On Video

    https://www.balls.ie/football/mourinho-bale-training-459076 I presume this was aimed at Gareth Bale (although Jose just says "Go to Madrid" rather than "Go back to Madrid" which seems strange. Whoever it was aimed at it's hardly motivational. Whilst Bale is not in the shot, the general assumption on the internet is that he is who Mourinho was speaking to.

    Mourinho Caught On Video

    Its quite common for players to go to a 'bigger' club to only be benched as a back up. Maybe he's addressing the players in a way that he's letting them all know they have a place in a proper team as opposed to a 'bigger' team where there may be no real room for them to consistently play. Just a shot in the dark... whatever, however he meant it, I doubt it was a direct insult. More a stimulus comment COYS

    Hard one, I think we should play with 4 CBs and 4 DMs, in order to keep a brilliant 0-0. I feel sorry for Bale, he is such a great player.. Poor the muppet-manager doesn't play him, it's a huge loss for us.

    I struggle with the concept of a team 1-0 up sitting back for long periods of a game. Of course a team wants to see out a result and in sitting back invites pressure from your opponents and allows you to attack them and catch them on the break. Harry Kane has provided many goal assists and magic passes whilst in a deep position and Son scores loads of goals from breakaways. I keep quoting he factual 2-0 loss to Leicester which was the direct responsibility of 2 players mistakes and in reply I get the mythical if we hadn't sat back but had attacked we would have won the game. Not necessarily so, instead of a good opponent equalising they may have gone on to win the game. If it is a fact that we have drawn,lost more games in the second half of games when leading then it stands to reason we must play well in the first half of games. Something to be worked on and improved on and as I have said before if the fans know it so does Jose and the Coaching team. When we have our run of games where we win and draw late in the second half, which has happened in the past and will again, the books will be balanced.

    Some very good points about Mourinho the improvement on the players thing though I think started with dele a little bit but went downhill. I'd love to know what happened to that high five in Delhi getting aggressive getting stuck in at the beginning of the season what he first came in and then disappeared I can you have such a big turnaround of phone surely he's trying in training and he's saying to Mourinho I will graft if you put me on. I'm in the same camp you are I think Mourinho needs more time the covid situation not being able to strengthen the team properly is probably hindered that but two main grievances I've got with him is the Sitting back on a 1-0 and park in the bus without attack needs to stop. He also goes on about being aggressive but the team seem to be lacking in the fight which we need to bring back again. A difference when our boys get on the front foot attack and get down the Wings scare the life out of defences that's what we should be doing constantly Sonny and kane hanging on their shoulders giving them grief and running off each other with the rest of the team actually bloody having a go shooting on trigger.I was thinking this morning when was the last time any of our players tried to go round anyone and score or win a penalty.Stevie and Lucas have got it in the locker and they just seems to be a bit parts again, were missing lo celso I know and lamela coming back to hopefully improve this....

    But just think of the bragging rights if we win the League Cup, do well in the other 2 cups and finish in the top 4! I will happily shower you with apologies and appropriate praise acknowledging your greater wisdom. COYS

    Believe we still have lost more points from a positive position than poch did ,,without boring everyone to death ,,,jm is lucky that there is no supporters in the lane there would be an awesome backlash

    There are some on here who take 'attacking' as rushing around like a headless chicken. All we ask for is to replace all those sideways and backward passes with players getting into spaces in the opponents half so there is someone to pass to. Getting down the wings and putting crosses into the box. Having more players showing the confidence to run with the ball forward when there is space in front of them and not just passing it to your nearest team mate for him to take the decision. COYS

    Eriksen......

    Coming on as a 90th minute substitute in what was supposed to be his 'dream' move to Inter and knowing he's up for sale in January. I feel sorry for the guy but a lot of this mess was self inflicted. I hope he eventually finds his niche but I certainly don't want him back at Spurs. His face speaks volumes.

    Sheffield has nothing to lose. Emilio will be rested for the Liverpool match, so it will be a tough and physical match, cause they will defend with 11 men and we will have to make the game. As in previous post I think we have no creative midfielder. Tanguy isn‘t one. He needs to play as a number 8 and Harry shouldn’t be turned to an ACM even his shirt number said so. I would try Lamela in a 4231. I like him, but when he is not used why keeping him? So let him play. A creative midfielder (no real options at the moment) For what I see, we need a right wing (unfortunately we have to accept Bale is a fail and the welsh seems not to be bothered. Lucas is not a game changer and is more sub material) We also need an experienced left footed defender. That’s imminent. Not another right foot. No matter Korean, Spanish or Brazilian. Even the best defender in the world I won’t take him when he’s a right foot. Btw Rodon can’t be worse than Dier or Ben as CLB. So why not trying? This is nothing new and that’s exactly the problem. No interventions! To me Ole has achieved what Mou is only talking about. Utd reached a CL spot last season and are serious title contenders for this year. Seems it was not the players. Just saying! A must win says nothing when you are Tottenham. I’m sorry, but my prediction is a 0:0 or 1:0 to Sheffield in a boring 90 mins. Match
