Video “Going beyond their limits” Nuno brilliant reaction to win over Man City
By Bruce Grove -

Nuno Espirito Santo got his Tottenham managerial career off to the best possible start with an opening day win over champions Man City, courtesy of a Son Heung-min winning goal.

The thing with this win over City is that it was fully deserved, this result has not come about because Pep Guardiola’s men were caught on the break after dominating proceedings. No, this win came about because Tottenham was the better team on the day. Simple as that.

This is some of what the gaffer had to say after the game this afternoon at the Tottenham stadium.

This guy is the complete opposite of Mourinho. Less about him and all about the team. It was an excellent win and for his first game in charge I thought it was an impressive performance. It’s not easy being the manager of Spurs. If you consider the circus that followed his appointment, I think a lesser manager would have buckled under the pressure. Nothing has been easy for Nuno but he comes out fighting and smiling. Respect where respect is due.
So many great performances today. More please

Oh what a fantastic TEAM performance, can’t fault anybody today.
The worry of starting Dier & Sanchez in central defence was totally soon forgotten, both were solid & Tanganga (my motm) was outstanding, had both Grealish & Sterling in his pocket. Höjberg & Skipp were both immense, the front 3 ran their socks off & even Dele showed glimpses of his best.
NES has obviously worked wonders & the players have clearly responded to him. Remember his 1st interview where many put him down as being insincere or trotting out the ‘party line?’ Well, if today is the start of how THFC mean to go on this season, they will indeed “make the fans proud” as they certainly “gave the best of each one of us, in every moment!”
Was so good to be back at the Lane, watching a THFC side play so well & the atmosphere was one of the best for the past few years! #COYS!

Absolutely. He had us playing as a team. Alli isn’t my fave but ran his socks off which says everything about the manager.

All the Kane fanboys will sure condemn kane now for handicapping us against Man city. Disgrace, he brought shame to the badge. He is gone and his teammates know it.

Levy to sell Kane and not sign a player for the rest of the season after today? 🤔 😂

Anyone who lets ENIC off the hook is a grade one cunt in my book…

Levy’s message to the fans was the usual guff about every ‘on trend’ off pitch thing he could squeeze in. Nothing about the football.

Well done Nuno, his staff and the team. You’ve picked this lot up after 18 months of demotivating and divisive management. The team spirit is back, great man management.

Levy and ENIC can go and f*ck themselves…

Call me suicidal but if you gave me the chance to pick the four transfers after Kane leaves (still seems inevitable) then I’d focus on our midfield and attack more than defence:

  • first a direct replacement for Kane (with more composure/presence than any of our front three today, more aerial ability too would be a bonus)
  • then an attacking mid who adds something different (ideally an outright playmaker) to break down stubborn defences and take the sting out of some games
  • third a defensive mid, ideally with arial presence again
  • finally just the one defender, perhaps a utility one like the Japanese lad

The outgoing players would be Kane and ideally Aurier (good player on his day but the time has come), Sissy and Winks

Will Harry Kane be available for Wolves on Sunday? ‘We’ve gotta go to Portugal first’! Well played Nuno 👏🏾

Doherty coming on was a big risk… other than that think we’ve seen in Skipp.. another Hoyberg… 2 midfielders who can get up & down the pitch for 90 minutes… when was the last time that happened on a regular basis? Anyone know if Sessegnon is back with us? He must of got better after his stint in Germany

Sess would need to get in ahead of Regulon and Davies, not sure he’d get enough game time. Might be better having another season out on loan, he’s still very young, he has time.
