Tottenham’s soft underbelly has plagued our progression for at least the last 20-years. José has stood in a lot of dressing rooms, he’s met a lot of footballers, and took him no time at all to work out that Hotspur Way was packed with nice boys. Whilst I’ve no desire to see Spurs deteriorate into a well heeled version of vintage Stoke, the frailty had to go, because nice boys don’t win anything.
Lo Celso is technically gifted, and as canny as you like. The Argentine picks up 2.14 fouls a game, which to give you a sense of what I’m applauding, Jack Grealish averages a remarkable 3.98 per game!
