“Next season is going to be better for us” Jose Mourinho full of positivity ahead of next season
By Bruce Grove -

Jose Mourinho has been left full of positives by the performances of his players at the end of this season.

The club was outside the top ten when he was named manager late last year, but he managed to help them end this season inside the top six and even more importantly, qualify for the Europa League.

His side turned on the style after the lockdown and wins against the likes of Arsenal and Leicester City helped them to overcome their early-season struggles and end the campaign in a good position.

He was speaking after his club’s final game of the season and he reflected on how hard his players worked to ensure that they ended this season in a fine position despite the lockdown that was imposed in between the start and end of the season.

He also maintained a positive outlook on next season, assuring fans and listeners that next season will be better for himself and his boys.

“One more year for Spurs, one more year for myself,” reflected Jose after the draw at Palace on the season’s final day last weekend as quoted on the official club website. “It’s an important European competition (Europa League) and the season had so many difficulties since day one that I think in the end it’s positive.

“The players are happy, especially because we managed to do that in the last couple of months, when the boys worked so, so hard, even during the lockdown, those sessions were brilliant, and I think they deserve it.”

“It’s positive, but the feeling is a couple more matches and it would probably be different, and the feeling is without so many injuries… just a couple less, it would be different too.

“But it’s over, and in the end, it ended in a positive way and with a positive feeling for next season. Now it’s time for the players to disconnect, to rest and to be back with the togetherness they show day after day, thinking that next season is going to be better for us.”

You lost me at “his side turned on the style” when exactly? Every game after lock down was dull.

This would have been more believable if we’d performed against Palace which we didn’t, we were pretty poor. Aside from the derby win against Arsenal (derby games are a law unto themselves), and a somewhat flattering win against a very injury hit Leicester, there hasn’t been too much to shout about tbh. Now we’re stuck with qualifying for the ropey – the ultimate indignation having to go to all that trouble for the ropey dopey cup. It’s going to interrupt our preseason for sure.
Where is our first signing? Hojbjerg demanding to join us and as usual discount Danny is perambulating over money. Will he ever learn? Can’t he see that the reason the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea win trophies and we don’t is his management style? He’s the only difference between us and the successful clubs, even when we have the better managers, we still flop. The blame lies firmly at his door. I don’t think he’s actually human but an ENIC robot.
Levy has one more chance this summer to bring in the players Jose wants and to stop whining like a little bit_h about how much everything costs and how covid has made life impossible for him blah blah. To bring in quality so we can compete, the money will be more than repaid with qualification into next seasons CL. At the moment I’d bet on Arsenal to win the ropey rather than us, they know how to win trophies, and so do Chelsea. The best decision Willian ever made was transferring from us to Chelsea wasn’t it?
It can be turned around by Jose, but he needs the tools to do the job. It’s a crossroads for sure, because if Levy won’t support one of the most successful managers in world football, who will he support?

Joe Lewis and Enic, effectively himself, are the only entities he supports. He will never change and Poch spoilt things because he overachieved with a low net spend. It is a simplistic thing to say, but we will never win anything with Levy at the helm, it doesn’t matter who the manager is.

That is a fact, and I think it’s finally slowly dawning on even the most ardent fanboys out there that they are being played to meet the financial ends of ENIC.

another year, another cup goes slipping by…a crap Arsenal win yet another cup..all these statements about Spurs losing 200m is misdirection….the club will not make a loss, they just won’t make anything, 100m of which came from the CL final last year..Chelsea already have 2 very good players in the bag and here we are again scrapping over a 20m pound average midfielder…

Maybe we should have gone for Arteta.
