Farewell To ‘Philosophy’ & ‘Building’ As Mourinho Brings Determination & Belief To Tottenham
By Harry Hotspur -

The ink was barely dry on Gareth Bale’s loan deal contract and the boy was talking about a winning mentality and players understand what it takes to win. The Mourinho factor was a phrase coined when Spurs began to noticeably recover their mojo in the Premier League table, but the real debut of the Special One’s magic was destined to come in the transfer windows.

The noisiest Mourinho dementors greeted the Portuguese’s arrival with mindless braying of a doomsday scenario that was to come the moment José demanded unchecked spending from Daniel Levy. Of course this never happened and would never happen. Levy had been wooing Mourinho for weeks (if not longer) before Pochettino was sacked, and the idea that budgets weren’t discussed is palpably laughable.

Instead, Mourinho proved that he was as agile and as brilliant as a manager as he ever had been, by identifying the type of player that he needed at Tottenham in order to break the cycle of mediocrity. Hojbjerg came in from today’s opponents, a club captain that wanted to apply his steel to a project with ambition. Matt Doherty is another no-nonsense, physically imposing and technically gifted addition. Joe Hart has won virtually everything in football both in foreign and domestic competitions. Now we see the arrival of Regulión, along with the return of Bale, both of whom have CV’s that stand up to close scrutiny.

What is under attack, and what will be brutally defeated in the 56-year-old’s regime at Spurs, is the complacency and mythology mumbo jumbo that has left us perennial losers, the archetypal footballing bridesmaids.

I expect in due course that Danny Rose’s soul destroying, ‘Anything from Milan’? routine to be replicated, as yet more fragile underachievers are gently forced out of Hotspur Way, a place that has frankly mollycoddled more players than it has propelled, since the day it was built. Making a Champions League Final is not enough if you lose. Winning is the metric.

Mourinho is taking immediate action – at a price the club can afford – to turn around side that has systematically failed to even occasionally win trophies since ENIC took over. With the wrong end of a billion pounds owed to the banks, there’s never been a better time to cast out the weak minded and get Tottenham winning.

Thank you for your efforts Mauricio, now is the time for action, not words.

Bales first interview… He said this year he wants to win a trophy,, if not,, then two 😆👌 After all the nonsense in recent years, it’s a joy to have him back….. I thought maybe one day when he’s 36 and obsolete .. But now at 31, on the pitch with prime Kane.. Marvellous…. Striker and a centre back come in too and we will fly. Nice big squad, less injuries and if we do still pick up a few then no worries we got cover, competition for places…. We are building, but with a master brick layer and architect, the building is nearly finished already.. Maureens philosophy is win and take no prisoners.. Up the Yids.

Or another way of looking at it could be Doherty and Hojbjerg were the two cheapest players of their type that Levy could find!

Alexander trent was better than Doherty last season in the prem based on their stats… But noone else… Second best right back in the prem for a bargain, hes worth double that or more so is a great signing. He’s consistent…. Hojbjerg I’m not so sure. Jury is still out.

New determination and zero points, so far.

Perhaps Bale really is the sticking plaster Holt was going on about after all?!

Always so negative man.. Positive mental attitude for once. Three points now. Wrapped up in style……. We sign one of the best players in the world and you’re calling him sticky plaster! I don’t know who Holt is, but the helmet can’t be a spurs fan.. We sign Bale and still you are a sourpuss whining and moaning with your glass half empty!

I will believe determination and belief when I see it, and consistently as you can’t tell me what we saw against Everton was either. Regulon I am sure will be great and Bale on his day is one of the best in the world… But currently we have bought an unknown that real didn’t want and an injury prone has been that no one really wanted for the money. Jose has been given access to players that poch could only dream of, could be Jose knows how to play levy, of could be finally levy has been warned by Joe Lewis that failure is now his fault, either way, this needs to be a big season and past 9 months I have not seen an ounce of belief or determination… But I did see the philosophy reach a few finals (including champions League), compete for the title, and produce best football in the land for a few seasons only to be let down by a chairman unwilling to add the little extra needed.
