Parking the bus whilst scoring the most in the league! Maureen’s system is extremely flexible, he switches from mid to low block and high press…
For any casual who doesn’t understand ‘park the bus’ then this means all 11 men in their own half, as many behind the ball as possible, literally surviving.
There is no incentive to attack, everyone defends and shuts up shop… Basement boys and relegation battlers have often reverted to this, not top of the league.
HH Says this is quite possibly the cleanest analysis of what José is doing that I’ve read, yet the phrase persists, used as go-to stopgap for those that are frustrated by having to watch defending.
The idea that defending is somehow boring or a sign of weakness makes no sense, and against the fact that Tottenham are scoring so many goals, it is revealed as being totally banal.
If you don’t like watching defending, he’s a pro tip; find someone that can edit video. Get them to grab Spurs highlights from MOTD, edit them, and then you can watch us mount wave after wave of attacks, without having to sit through any of the dull stuff.
We have a bingo!
