Tottenham Hotspur’s poor performances continue as we tick into the 2020 portion of the campaign and with injuries now also hitting hard with Moussa Sissoko joining Harry Kane on the sidelines, for most fans, it’s simply a case of going from bad to worse at this moment in time.

Saturday’s late clash with Liverpool was never going to be easy, especially in light of relative form and few would’ve been disappointed to take a point as we welcomed them to White Hart Lane, as Champions League revenge certainly didn’t seem to be on the cards.

Whilst we certainly didn’t have possession, I would imagine the more glass full amongst us will be more happy with the performance as we created a number of chances and really could’ve equalised having gone behind in the 37th minute.

I doubt many would argue we should’ve won and nicked it, but we were certainly more in the game in the second period.

1-0 was how it finished and given how some fans felt the game would go, at least it wasn’t an embarrassment and it could/has to be, something we build from.

  • 123, you are allowed to attack without leaving your defence exposed especially when you have someone as good as Jose to set the team up!!!. Why play Winks and Eriksen and then bypass them.

  • I would love to know what would please some people here. I’m not happy with the result either but there definitely was an improvement in our approach and play in the game. Maybe just maybe Jose said we’ll play tight defensively for around an hour then we’ll change tack and go for it in the last 30 min. What would Poch have done same strategy play who he has then sub them at around 80 minutes play every ball short put ourselves under pressure because we aren’t good enough to play that way. Some people are blasting Jose. I’m still on the fence about him. However I cannot deny his success at other clubs. Who do these people want if is not Mourinho? I think for some if we won the treble The CL the Club world Cup, Sports personality of the year there’d be some one asking why we didn’t win an Oscar and a BAFTA.

  • DoncasterHotspur – Pretty clear why Mourinho is a top manager and you aren’t. With the players he had, without Kane, against maybe currently the best club side in the world Jose played it tactically spot on. If we were to “have a go” at Liverpool and give them the space in which to launch their high speed counter attacks we would have got hammered. When you play a superior side you need to make them play a game they don’t want to play not do exactly what they want you to do.

  • Loz – I have never advocated spending above our means. But we could have done more and chosen to be a bit more daring instead of being the most risk averse club in the PL. If you’re not going to back MP when he had us firing on all cylinders, when are you ever going to back a manager?

    Liverpool may have had more revenues, but only marginally more. The biggest difference was that they were willing to reinvest more of their revenues, proportionally, than we were. The results of both approaches speak for themselves.

    The stadium should never have been an objective in itself, rather a means to generate more revenues. Yet fans like you are quite happy to consider it as such. Enjoy it all you want, but it’s that exact mentality which is holding the club back.
