New Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho took another step at the weekend when it came to winning over those who remain doubtful within the Spurs fanbase as we picked up his third straight win having welcomed Bournemouth to White Hart Lane.

With England midfielder Dele Alli continuing his comeback to form with a brace on the day, a rare effort from Moussa Sissoko took us to a 3-2 victory, although defensively again there are concerns with the way we are shipping goals against.

Former player and now BBC pundit Garth Crooks again named the 23-year-old in his Team of the Week selection and he certainly had high praise indeed for his turn of form following the arrival of our new gaffer.

“The mere fact that Alli has appeared in my team of the week in consecutive weeks and had a memorable match in midweek against Olympiakos tells its own story. It looks like the kid is back. Every time he receives the ball it feels like something is about to happen. That feeling has been absent in his game for some time. Against Bournemouth, he should have had a hat-trick and would have done if he was at his very best, so there is still some work for him to do. It does look like Mourinho is starting to have an effect.”

Alli now boasts two goals and an assist for Jose in the Premier League, which as Crooks points out, was his return across the last 12 matches under Mauricio Pochettino. Five goals and two assists for the campaign so far, so he’s at least moving back in the right direction.

Is Alli Back To His Best?

Yes

Yes

No

He's Improving, But Can Still Be Better

    • I have faith TQ2 – guess it’s just narrowing down whether it was server move or browser update side of life to sort the fix. It’s not related to the previous issue which was posts being snagged by the spam function as you were waiting for me to ‘approve’ them.

  • You’ll have to write loads of short articles DW and put a new one up once the first page of comments has filled up on each!

    • I’ll be watching a little more closely tomorrow, hopefully. But fingers crossed progress was made today in isolating it.

    • Yes, I’m assuming across the board but I don’t know for sure. I’m no techy but I can only guess something corrupted during the server move or our new servers are lacking a patch or something? Thankfully I’m obviously not involved in that side of things, or I’d probably make it ten times worse playing. lol

  • It used to be great fun on here before we used plain text, some posters tried to use HTML code to make paragraphs and the like and we would often end up with bold text on every post because someone turned it on but forgot to turn it off again! lol

    • I do know a better comments system is on the cards, possibly a bit more like the old system I believe from what I’ve heard, but that’s an update for the future. This one should (and I hope) will work better quickly as a tide over.

  • I’m guessing the move to a new server possibly included an upgraded operating system which can often result in issues of this kind. I will look forward to seeing the improvements sometime in the future! :- )

  • If you are reading DW, the Manu match thread has fallen over on page 2 as the others have. It seems you can keep the thread going by using the reply button on the last post on page 1 but I’m not sure if there is a pre-determined page length that means this will eventually stop working?

    • Certainly shouldn’t be TQ2 as we’ve had plenty upwards of 8 pages and 100+ comments before so it shouldn’t be tripping out at 25ish when the second page seems to come into play.
