Jose Mourinho | Spurs manager

At every club he's been at since 2002, Mourinho has won trophies. Will he win one at Spurs?

To be fair to him though, he did say that the team didn't show any desire or ambition today after going a goal up. Although, he may say that in public but everything he does and says during training may be contradictory to this.
The problem isn't that they don't want to get a second goal though, it's that they don't know how. If you look back at a lot of Spurs' goals this season, most are from individual brilliance from top players or massive defensive capitulations (see their 6-1 against us). They don't know how to play quality combination football other than on the break, because Jose hasn't evolved his attacking approach. Even today's goal was from a shot outside the box that the keeper should have done better with.

Does anyone know what their xG looks like? I'd love to know.

The fact that people saw Jose incite a civil war at Madrid to defend himself, incite a civil war at Chelsea 2.0 to defend himself, incite a civil war at United to defend himself, and then still think "You know, there's probably something in this. Jose is probably right, and it's everyone else that is the problem" truly astounds me. Even by the time he became United manager I was staggered that people were willing to drink his kool aid. At least the Spurs fans are seeing the light faster than ours did.
Yup. I still rather admire him for it.

Sadly, it seems that United fans were (and still are to an extent) a lot more susceptible to falling for it than other clubs’.

He says a lot of things but then he spends all week with the players and they come out the next weekend and it’s the same thing again.

I feel the lack of supporters has helped him. He would have been under more pressure.

Watch him win the Carling cup and he will tell you that was what he targetted all season, He never had the players to beat Wolves

Why is he taking this Fulham thing so personally? Parker can bemoan his lack of preperation, thats his right but feck me Jose must think he fecked his mother or something.
Its bizarre. Feeling youre owed an apology if they put out a strong team is ridiculous.

It is totally ridiculous that from Jose. Surely, Fulham can put whatever team they see fit?

If he had 2 days to prepare he would make it seem like the whole world is against him.

He hates any narrative which implies he isn't up against it. His comments re Fulham/Parker literally make zero sense.

I only feel pity for the Spurs fans at this point.

Jose's horrible negative tactics cost his team the win tonight.

You do realise, I suppose, that United played at home, whilst Spurs were the away team.

But hell, with such a superior xG it's shocking that United aren't top of the league, and even more shocking that United lost 1 - 6 to Spurs, at home.
So now it’s no longer shocking right Glaston? :lol:

xG matters here and proves you relied too much on Kane & Son being clinical before.

He's relying too heavy on Kane and Son as their only source of goals.

Can't wait to hear his excuses for failure if there's no top 4, and sense of being cheated by a giant imaginary conspiracy..... along with blaming everyone at Spurs except himself.

:lol: Mourinho's comments on Parker are so unecessary. Only he's allowed to have a moan. And if someone else's moan kills his underdog vibe he needs to out moan that moan to prove he's the alpha-moaner.

So he is saying his players are bottlers or actually not good enough "skills & ability"? This will end well.
Throwing players under the bus as per usual.

Not long ago he said Spurs have better players than he had at United. Surely he shouldn’t make excuses about his players not being good enough now.

Your ascribing to Spurs under Mourinho of one particular and single brand of football is simply wrong, because it varies according to who we're playing.

Spurs do not sit back and play on the counter in all games. Indeed, in some games we face a packed, deep-sitting defence, where game becomes pretty much attack vs defence.
I guess that theories been disproven last night? :lol:

Home to Fulham. Parking the bus. Pretty clear cut there’s only one brand of football and it doesn’t matter who the opponent is.
