Mourinho’s Low Cost Lilywhites Send Guardiola Home Hungry – video
By Harry Hotspur -

A very tough day at the office for Pep Guardiola, a man very experienced in the art of winning; yet one today one incapable of achieving anything of note against Mourinho’s budget buffet of Lilywhite superstars. There came a point on the Sky Sports coverage, shortly after the second goal, were the Spaniard looked shell shocked, absolutely bereft of ideas. What a truly glorious moment that was.

What Mourinho has achieved in one year is utterly unremarkable, unless he is able to win something. Just to be clear…

I had it down as a 2-2, I was half right. I didn’t expect Citeh to be so blunt and sloppy…

Imagine how good we would be with a bit of money spent in the right areas! Let’s not forget we got Hojbjerg cheap because of his contract running down, but it is turning into an absolute steal. If we’d paid £40m I would be happy as he has been great, particularly yesterday and by Levy’s reckoning he is now worth £80m. Both Lo Celso and Ndombele chipped in with an important contribution so that is brilliant to see. More of the same please. Our midfielders do need to support the top 3 more often. Toby’s absence is going to be a monumental miss. He is a colossus. Sanchez cannot be allowed anywhere near our back 4 again. Is the Chelsea game too soon for Mighty Joe? The same set up v Chelsea and we’ll see how good Frank is at working out the problem. They love going forward but are still dodgy at the back. Newcastle could have scored 3 yesterday. City are always going to dominate possession, but they were bereft of ideas, so if we can replicate this performance against the top teams we won’t be far away from those elusive pots and pans. How about playing Hojbjerg, Ndombele and Lo Celso v the weaker teams though?

Late to the show to applaud vintage Mourinho on his excellent text book victory. Taking each game at it’s time heading in the right direction when Jose’s remit is to win some silverware! Great feeling topping the table but with 2 difficult fixtures ahead, like a horse heading the field in the Grand National it’s still only the first circuit!!

It was a very good performance, if not pretty, doing things the Jose way. However, without wishing to put a downer on anything about the win, Citeh were not very good tonight, toothless. Partly because we were well organized but they gave us too much time and space to turn the ball over when they lost it. Not the high pressing machine we expect. They’ve lost that relentless edge at the moment…

Agreed. By his very high standards KDB is strangely off form.
The 2 dangermen for Chelsea are Ziach and Werner who when he motors is deceptively quick.

Dave are you ready to jump on the Tanguy bandwagon yet?

Dan spoilt for choice I’d play Joe Rodon who seems an automatic replacement. Yes he is thrown into the lions den perhaps earlier than expected but I have got no problem with that!!

I think Dan is talking about Tanguy N’Dombele not Tanganga. Sanchez should be back midweek for the EL. We will have 2 days less rest than Chelski this week so we need to pick wisely to give players enough time to recover.

If Harry Winks tries to force a move in January with these sort of performances he’s braindead – an injury to someone and you end up playing in this winning side.

Or you go out on loan to West Brom.

Sonny has now scored the same amount as Arsenal have in the PL this season.Top goalscorer in the PL with 9. Harry Kane top assists in the PL with 8.

In the last two games combined against Man City they have had 41 shots to Spurs 7 and the aggregate score is Spurs 4 City 0.

Clearly what counts is the final score, hence the reason if losing that dominating possession means absolutely nothing!!

As long as we keep winning I’m all for the substance over style approach. We are going to have come up with a chant for Hoijberg involving €15m. What a signing, he was Roy Keanesque today.

A far cry from the diktat of our greatest ever manager Bill Nic who was quoted as saying “It’s no use just winning, we’ve got to win well.”

“Its better to fail aiming high than to succeed aiming low. And we of Spurs have set our sights very high, so high in fact that even failure will have in it an echo of glory.”

Words that shall forever remain at the core of the Spurs identity. Jose is at odds with that to a degree, however, if we win something big it will be tolerated.
