It’s been a lively week for Tottenham Hotspur with the departure of Mauricio Pochettino and the arrival of Jos Mourinho, but there’s certainly some renewed confidence going into this Saturday’s Premier League clash with Bournemouth.

Whilst it hasn’t been plain sailing in either of Mourinho’s opening two matches so far, there have been positives and we have registered back to back wins against West Ham United and Olympiakos in the Champions League.

Eddie Howe’s side will be tough though, especially given our form, but with White Hart Lane behind us, we should be looking to make it three wins on the spin and push ourselves further back up the table.

Will our 14th League game of the season see a fifth win? Points might be everything but I can only imagine Mourinho will be looking for significant improvement first when it comes to our defensive play – we’ve shown again what we can do it in attack, it would be nice if we didn’t have palpitations at the back. A 90 minute performance would be welcome here rather than our tale of two halves.

Bournemouth...

  • Yes PY Jose enjoys the Pantomime/circus/theatre of it all. Agreed with BS let’s see how his performances pan out between now and Christmas even give him the first transfer window in January.
    Glad other subscribers (I think Block108) have seen the value of HK10 as captain. As Allan says would love to see Sess on the pitch at LB. But I think Jose is relying on senior players at present. Tried to post several versions of this but didn’t save so if I have several similar entries apologies.

  • I for one love JoMo. Have always wanted to have a Manager/Coach with his calibre run the football at Spurs. I see nothing wrong with his persona. He is a passionate man and tells it like it is and acts like it is. I don’t think you will ever hear him say I think we played well after we’ve just stunk the place out. He takes losses personally. I would love for him to instill that feeling into these players. Yes losing hurts. When we lose it screws up my entire weekend (and I’ve heard many on here say the same thing). At least now when we lose I will know that the Manager/Coach is feeling like shit, like I am. What I liked most in the Olympiakos game on Tuesday is when we were running around like headless chickens, (right after going down 0-2), he was in the technical area, very animated and gesturing and shouting to the players to “calm the f&^% down”. it was something they needed right then and he was there with them. Listen he isn’t God and neither was Poch but the Poch era is over and we all need to support the team and the new man in charge. COYS!

  • For some reason can’t read the posts on page 2 – could someone look into this – been down for the last 24 hours or so I believe.

  • Having said that I won’t now watch Jose’s press conferences, I just did. 😉 And, yesterday he was asked about where he thinks Sessegnon is best to play. He said as a winger. He basically went on to say that he is not developed well enough yet to play as a full-back and that he would need to work more on the defensive side of things for Jose to consider playing him there. (Which is just how I saw it myself)…

    He mentioned that it was unfortunate about Davies being out but he is confident with both Rose and/or Jan to play at left-back. He also said that he has the option to play Aurier there as well, if needed. Talking of Aurier, he said that he feels Serge is a very attack-minded player, hence Jose giving him the freedom to play forward in a more attacking role.

    I have to say that he spoke well, looked calm and confident in his players and the squad…

    As for today and as Jose pointed out, Bournemouth are a good team. A team that he said Howe has set up well to play in different ways and that it’s difficult to predict how they will approach each game. Myself I see the Cherries as a team that always plays to win and are capable of beating the best. But, they are also a team that can be well beaten, on occasion.

    So, it could well be another tough match for Spurs today. But it could also be a match that we win comfortably if it all goes our way. I’m going for the comfortable…

    Spurs 5-1 Cherries!

  • I’m not seeing posts on here. Not from others, since a PY post on Thursday or a couple that I have submitted… So writing this, I don’t know if it will appear…
    Has anyone else had this problem? If you have then you probably won’t see this post anyway! 🙁

  • Very strange am missing all posts between no25 my own and Niall D’s at 49.

    Never mind, life goes on, such as a good win today v Bournemouth, am still in the mind we will see our first clean sheet under JoseYid, lol! COYS

  • This is hard to watch. Dier is so slow and too many 50/50 balls lost by the defensive players generally. Bournemouth look more composed and tidy but our attack will hopefully outgun them.

  • You know there’s something in the air if sissoko scores a goal, no way it’s Jose.

    Who said we will be playing boring anti 1-0 please stand up

  • Ah well, 3 points is 3 points, and beggars can’t be choosers. Why the bloody hell do we have to have a 3 goal start in a home fixture, we get a 3 goal lead and then hang on just. Our defending is just abysmal and surely Mourinho will be seeking funds to rectify this problem in January. One thing for sure, the better PL sides will not allow us to get 3 in front, and will punish poor defending and school boy errors ruthlessly, as we will soon find out.
