What had started out as quite a promising campaign has definitely turned into a topsy turvy year for Tottenham Hotspur, and this week has been no different as we backed up a poor performance against Arsenal in the North London Derby defeat with a quite incredible performance that saw Dinamo Zagreb fight back from a two goal deficit to unceremoniously dump us out of this season’s Europa League competition.

Opinions amongst Spurs fans have always been torn when it comes to manager Jose Mourinho and this last week has done nothing to temper those thoughts, and it probably feels even more frustrating as ahead of Arsenal it looked like we were again playing ourselves into some good, attacking form and leaving the more defensive and pragmatic approach behind us.

We will be missing Erik Lamela after his sending off, and Son Heung-Min continues to be out. In other potentially good news, there’s mixed talk about Jack Grealish returning so he might miss out for them, but in any event, we know we have the firepower to take all three points, it just again comes down to how we play and, well, how we play.

The question that no one can bet on ahead of a match this season.

German striker Jurgen Klinsmann spent two years at White Hart Lane in separate spells, but how many league goals did he contribute?

  • TK “Sinking I am” are you turning into Yoda. Don’t usually quote m8, but loved that one.
    3-0 Tonite COYS. 🙂

  • Mmmmm, no regular right back in the 11 or the subs! I was expecting Rodon to start with Toby but he isn’t even on the bench.

  • No Toby on top of all the other absences Not sure that Tangy at right back and Rodon to partner Sánchez strengthens the defence. Nor do I have much confidence in Vinny partnering a knackered Kane up front .It’s certainly ruffled my feathers but needs be I suppose.

  • Yes but he is our only CB backup with Toby out, he has played Sissoko there before but I’m still surprised he doesn’t have Doherty on the bench or even the youngster from the U23’s.

  • 4-3-1-2 with Kane and Vinicius up front?
    at least we see something different. I guess I won’t walk away but I’ll watch today. god, the whole JM mess has me depressed. I’ve been retreating into reading ancient Greek pre-Socratic philosophy to try to shake it off. Now there’s a place to find some forgotten formations. talk about going traditional.

  • Just heard that Villa have lost 9 out of the last 10 games with Spurs and drawn one. Not a good omen knowing the way these sort of runs go with us when we need a result.

  • keeping the hemlock handy sounds dandy advise. I’ll stick with the sensimilla today, though. I’m trying to shake off the Mourinho malaise. a life well lived is a life that connects with the truth, beauty, and justice of the cosmos, and that’s best done when the whole is in harmony. no room in this for extreme self centeredness. We’re best when we laugh at ourselves for thinking we are above the rest. What is special is the whole cosmic community. Connect with that which makes us glorious, not that which makes us separate. we are community.

  • Wondering about Lloris’S comments on Thursday.
    I wondering is he starting to cultivate his way out of Spurs by making his Captaincy, therefore his position at Spurs untenable.
    He can’t get on with the rest of the team, there fore needs to leave.
    Only thinking out loud.
