Tottenham match awful run that saw manager sacked 18 years ago
By Mark Brus -

Tottenham have matched an awful run from the 2003/04 season by conceding three or more goals in three consecutive Premier League games.

After making a strong start to the season, new Spurs manager Nuno Espirito Santo is now under pressure after losing 3-0 to Crystal Palace and Chelsea, and now 3-1 to Arsenal in the North London Derby on Sunday.

This is the first time Spurs have done this in the Premier League since the 2003/04 season, and you might recall that manager Glenn Hoddle was sacked at the end of that run, with that team beaten 3-0 by Fulham, 4-2 by Chelsea and then 3-1 at home to Southampton.

This is a worry for Tottenham, with Nuno not necessarily looking like the right man for the job at the moment, even if a change from Jose Mourinho was probably also needed.

We’re not suggesting Nuno’s job is currently on the line like Hoddle’s was, but this stat is certainly a damning reflection on how he’s got this side playing.

Tottenham need to improve fast, and they could do with getting Harry Kane more opportunities as he still hasn’t scored a league goal so far this season.

The owners have created a toxic environment and while they are in charge the manager’s job will always be a poison chalice

Nuno should probably drop Kane for the forseeable, put Gill up front & get Scarlett in from the accademy… I think its clear Nuno wont last much longer he may as well go down fighting

Modern mercenaries, no love for the club and no interest in the fans for all their badge kissing. I’m disgusted with the lot of them, honourable exceptions like Skippy aside.

Bill Nicholson always told his players the most important people at Tottenham were the fans.

Not any more, not for a long time.

Fans? To ENIC/Levy they are merely patrons.

It was clear when Conte turned down the job that the club still lacked the ambition to compete for honours and the likes of Nuno was the only calibre of manager they could seriously attract.The club is sitting mid table with a mid table manager operating on a mid table budget. Smoke and mirrors aside, results are on par with the club’s level of ambition and, unless there is a significant change of intent from the board, we are where we deserve to be.

I do feel sorry for Nuno. But that feeling won’t last if we continue to play such inept football. We do not have the right formation, the right mentality or the right kind of leadership on the pitch. We play as disparate units rather than as a cohesive team. I haven’t seen us looking so forlorn in many a year. And that is a real worry.

Surprised to see NES kept his job this morning. Expected to see the headline Nuno no-no across the tabloids. How long will he last?

football is a polical game these days , unfortunately a week in football is a long time .
We have a manager [ obviously a decent man ] that is just not enough of “a face ” to be able to turn our situation around , he would not have the pull power of a Guardiola or Klopp .
The term “big club ” is surely only for those that act in that manner , or else their importance just fades .. Take action now Tottenham , let not our star sink below the horizon , Nuno cannot be allowed to continue , the downturn has to be arrested or it may take years and years for this to be rectified.
We are a magnificent club , fantastic support , best staduium inthe world , surely any successful CEO would recognise , this just aint good enough ……………..
