According to talkSPORT presenter Andy Goldstein, Jose Mourinho cannot be blamed for Tottenham’s habit of grabbing defeats from the jaws of victory.
Mourinho has been accused of being too cautious and not taking enough risks this season but the Spurs boss decided to opt for an attacking approach in the FA Cup fifth-round tie against Everton on Wednesday.
Spurs committed bodies forward in attack right from kick-off and could have arguably been out of sight had they taken their chances in the first 30 minutes.
In the end, the North Londoners ended up losing the game despite scoring four goals as a result of several poor defensive errors.
Goldstein insisted that losing in that manner was in the club’s DNA and Jason Cundy was in agreement with that assessment.
Here’s what the pair said on talkSPORT’s The Sports Bar regarding Tottenham’s defeat at Goodison Park:
👀 “I don’t want to use the phrase Spursy, but…”
🤔 “Is this just Tottenham’s DNA??”
🤯 “It’s not the manager, it’s not Jose, it’s… it’s just the club!”

This ‘Spursy’ tag has stopped have any meaning at this point as it is peddled every single time we have a poor result. Yesterday’s loss was plainly down to individual mistakes at the back.
