Tottenham Hotspur are currently coached by Jose Mourinho.
Jose Mourinho is known for low blocks, defensive football, and counter-attacking.
Jose Mourinho has won trophies at every single club he has been at.
The above three sentences are all facts. These facts are not changing any time soon. Mourinho will continue to be the Spurs head coach for the foreseeable future.
Therefore, some Spurs fans need to cast aside their opinions over the style of football and get behind the project; a tried and tested winning project.
There will come a time when Spurs fans are allowed back into the stadium in large numbers. Now, I know that Mourinho football isn’t pretty and can be frustrating to watch, especially when points are dropped. However, it is effective!
If fans return are divided on the style, with some getting on the players’ or manager’s back, the defensive football will become harder. Mistakes will creep in and what was once comfortable defending will become nervy.
Nothing can be achieved by demanding Mourinho to change his ways, he never has and never will. Instead, the best chance us fans have of seeing glory is to fully get behind him and the team, accepting the fact that it won’t be prime viewing pleasure.
As much as I would love to play fancy, free-flowing and attractive football, Tottenham do not have the players for that at this moment. If the Lilywhites opened up and traded punches with the big clubs, they would lose the vast majority, as we have done for years.
Mourinho has assessed the players he has and found a way to play to their strengths across the board. The man even has Serge Aurier defending well!
There will be boring moments and extremely frustrating defeats, just like last night. However, Spurs are defending well while also creating clear chances each and every game.
That may not be the way that everyone wins the title, but it is currently the only way Tottenham can win the title.
In conclusion, I beg those doubters not to drag the team down with negativity but to get behind them and see where this takes us!
