URZZZZ Spurs scored 23 goals in their last six games, including two of these games with them only scoring one, they seem to be on fire offensively

Of course all those who said Mourinho was boring and defensive have crawled away back into their shells and will no doubt reappear if they begin to struggle again

Mourinho is known for having very successful second seasons at clubs so will be interesting to see how they fare this season


What was surprising about Sunday was that Spurs were playing something like their 4th game in 10(?) days and yet were at their very best with Kane looking as fresh as a daisy having played in 3(?) of those games.

Players much prefer playing to training so hopefully this result in particular puts to bed the view that fit athletes need the rest that managers keep moaning about.


It annoys me when managers complain about having so many games. In many cases, these are the same managers who stockpile their squad

Surely, the more games (league cup etc) the better as it allows managers to evaluate the strength of squad depth and whether they could be trusted in bigger environments

Maybe Vic was right about Tottenham’s defence

Aurier, Dier, Sanchez all just so poor
Genuinely think Morrison, Moore and Yiadom are a better trio

Exactly why Spurs are the least unlikeable glory boy team. Great to watch, full of talent, but will never win anything.

ROFL.....

What moaner Kane is as well. Flattening a West Ham player then staying down injured wasting time. Then in the refs face at the end.
The beauty of this result is that the spuds boss Maureen has no excuse to complain about the goal.
First was rubbish defending.
Second was an own goal.
Third was a wonderful strike.
He manufactured his own downfall today.

2nd in the league, top scorers still, Bale got his first goal on his return, looking good for Spurs

All if buts and maybes, but they would have been top if either West Ham or Newcastle didn’t score 95th minute equalisers against then

If they sort out their consistency, especially in defence, they may be in with a shout for the title

They needed 2 CB's and a keeper during the window imo, I just don't think they have enough depth especially defensively. The Europa League will take it's toll.

I think Spurs will challenge, but will probably ultimately fall short (quelle surprise). I don't think they have a good enough defence - they're missing that big defender/leader at the back that you often find with title winners. Van Dijk, Terry, Vidic etc.

In fact, they remind me a lot of Liverpool just before they bought Van Dijk.

I fancy them to win a cup this year though.

Well Liverpool will obviously miss that this season now. Man City have Laporte... can't really think of any other sides likely to challenge this season. I think Man City will nick it this year.

Harry Kane scores his 200th Tottenham goal in the Europa League. Some achievement.

That’s an incredible achievement given Spurs have only been in the Europa League four times since he’s started playing :D

Jokes aside his record is incredible. I really hope he stays with Spurs his whole career and breaks all their records. Other than Messi it is hard to find a "one club player" in this day and age.

I think if he stays with Spurs, he will break Shearer's Prem record, which I never thought would be beaten.
