Lets hope Toby’s injury is not as bad as the last time when he did his hamstring. Such a shame as he and Dier have started to look a good combo together. Maybe playing for Belgium hasn’t helped with this?

They’re certainly beatable, no doubt – would like to see Toby passed fit for it though.

Good call Jose for getting the Rodon in even though he wasn’t his first choice.

As long as we get the results I’m not too bothered right now. Overall though I don’t like the approach at all.

Can we keep doing this for the whole season? Who knows but if it wins us the league then I don’t care to be honest and it’s working at the moment.

You’ve changed…lmao. personally I am still struggling to get on board. I hope this results in the league the same as we all do, but really am struggling to even begin to enjoy the approach and really worried 38 games like this and I will feel so detached that I won’t care of we win the league anymore. Happy to win games like this when we have to, but shouldn’t be the main tactic.

I’m on board while we’re getting the results mate.

However, I make no secret of my disdain for the approach. Me no like…

I’ve felt detached since about Jose’s 6th game in charge! The first few games was a reaction, lots of attacking play and possession. Once he got stuck into them it’s was Jose’s style as we expect… not for me.

Still can’t believe people are being negative about Mourinho’s tactics. We can’t play attractive gung ho attacking football a la Redknapp era Spurs all the time if we want to win anything!! Yesterday was a masterclass against an extremely talented and ruthless City side. We have scored plenty of goals this season and have ground out wins when needed. That’s the mark of a title challenge and a massive mentality change that Jose has brought to the team. He’s making us very hard to beat, and to play like “intelligent kuntz, not stupid kuntz”

Personally winning and how we win go hand in hand for me. If I choose to have a season where I don’t bother watching and simply tracking results (like I used to under George Graham) then winning the league will be great, but may as well simply be a statistic.

Look, you’re not getting arguments from me. I’m with you 100%, since Jose’s been at Spurs I generally only watch the highlights and the goals.

The stats etc tell the story, I’m not sitting through that unless I’m sat in the ground watching them. I’ve been to four matches I think under Maureen and I have to say, I didn’t enjoy it.

I don’t watch Spurs to satisfy myself with ‘good’ defending and ‘good’ organization at the back. I’ve never watched the game for that. Ok, periods in the game when you do that, dig in etc etc and do it well, yes all part of the game. Not as a general approach, flipping horrible. Tolerate it if we win, just about…

The fact is you can also win like Liverpool, Citeh a season or so ago or Bayern etc. Jose’s methods are no longer the only way to win big stuff and the world has moved on. Right now it’s working for us and we’re winning, what can you say?

That’s not in the Jose plan, let the opposition lose it and score on the break. Citeh have had 69% possession and 11 shots to our 3 it feels strange and it’s a good job there’s no fans in the stadium. Nor sure how they’re going to react to seeing the opposition dominate possession at home.

From what I know about watching Spurs at home over the years, it will be a bit of struggle for the crowd. Win, lose or draw.

If we win like this then I guess you can’t argue with it….

People commenting on BBC saying it’s a boring match, no chance! Low block, counterattacking and excellent defending (so far) Vs possession domination and then dirty cheap fouls when spurs win back the ball and look to counter. City should have at least 3 yellow cards for purposefully stopping spurs counters but they didn’t get any!
