Expressions of angst on online are not uncommon, in fact most social media platforms are emotionally unrewarding places to spend too much time these days. However, this video from Jose Mourinho on the club’s official feed inspired a well of sorrow from fans.
As ever with Spurs, it was the manner of the defeat against Sheffield United, that was upsetting. Football teams lose games. It happens. But Spurs in the main looked as if they were going through the motions at Bramall Lane, like it didn’t mean an awful lot to them.
As per the Gary Lineker piece we ran earlier, the underinvestment in footballers at Spurs has ruined us. It’s the worst kept secret in the game.
Stadium blah blah blah, training facilities blah blah blah, non of these are worth tuppence if the team is neglected.
Jose looks genuinely hurt, which of course, his detractors will seise upon. His problem is, ENIC are flat to the boards financially, and the only viable action plan would be start shipping out the players that the Portuguese feels he cannot reach.
