‘Unacceptable’ – Some Spurs fans react to scoreless draw against Bournemouth

Some Spurs fans on social media are livid with the team’s inability to create anything of substance going forward as they played out a scoreless draw against relegation-threatened Bournemouth this evening.

Jose Mourinho’s men never quite got going at the Vitality Stadium and looked sluggish right from kick-off.

Spurs looked toothless when they had the ball, as they continued to shift it from side to side in their own half, looking for nonexistent openings in the Cherries defence.

Barring the final twenty minutes of the game when they had some success in getting in-behind Bournemouth’s backline, the tempo from Tottenham was simply not quick enough to create any meaningful opportunities.

While some Spurs were understandably frustrated with the side’s display but there was some disagreement on who deserved the blame.

While a few pointed the fingers at Jose Mourinho’s tactics, others insisted that the players needed to take responsibility for the performance:

Spurs Web Opinion

One thing that is evident over the past couple of games is that playing two pivots in Harry Winks and Moussa Sissoko means that we miss out in terms of creativity. We looked much better after we changed formation and Ndombele partnered Winks in the middle of the park. The obvious solution is to play Lo Celso deeper and drop one of Winks or Sissoko, which is what I suspect Jose will do against Arsenal. Most fans will be hoping that the Spurs boss is brave and stars Ndombele for the North London Derby, which the Frenchman arguably deserves on the back of his second-half performance.

    You are Baffled why Spurs fans want Mourinho out, really.
    Basically the same team that Poch took to the CL Final last year, and we are drawing away at Bournemouth without managing a shot on goal. I have been watching Spurs for 50+ years and since The Special One took over the football has been miserable. I don’t want him to have the chance to bring in “his” players. His players are old and expensive, we are linked with Willian and Giroud for God’s Sake. We are Tottenham not the Chelsea Pensioners, history alone dictates than we stay away from them. Who’d take the job, again really, Poch is still out of work, perhaps he’d consider coming back!
