Think Levy just got sick of all the no trophy jibes so thought that was the best guarentee. He comes in and they lose to Norwich on penalties in FA cup two months later.I don't think anyone is claiming that the blame is all on Mourinho , that the Spurs squad is brilliant and that if they sacked him tomorrow Spurs would go on to win the Title or anything like that.
They have a lot of players in their squad that need replacing and it feels like they need a big overhaul as Pochettino was saying about 15 months ago to be fair.
The issue is if you need to overhaul your squad and you don't have endless money to do it why on earth would you bring in Mourinho?
He does usually take domestic cup competitions very seriously with his team selections but the shorter season has made that near impossible in league cup so think it's all on europa league for Spurs this season. He achieved that objective for Man. United in 16/17 so I wouldn't completely dismiss it.
