Beat Leicester Jose and I'll lay off slagging you off for at least a day or two.
They have to get result to fight for Europa place, something Jose said he wants for Spurs.

Jose is using Aurier like Maicon. Been watching Spurs this season lot under Jose and their last three games pretty much convinced me even more that right back spot should be the first thing Jose needs to sort out before other positions.

Dreadful crossings & clumsy in defending. Well, actually, today confirmed he also clumsy in everything because during throw in, he threw the ball backward to Newcastle player.

To be fair, his brother just passed away, so today is probably not the best time for analysing Aurier's performance.

If you read my post, I judged him based on what I watched this season not just today's game. He's been clumsy on attacking & defending this season, I'l be surprised if any Spurs fans don't think they don't need to replace Aurier.

Yeah, Aurier has a lot of brain fart moments. Today was par for the course, not an exception.

Not a Spurs fan, but I watched every match since Jose has arrived and I absolutely agree. Right back is the first position that needs to be adressed in the summer window.

Having said that, huge credit for Aurier that he played today after what happened a few days ago.

I watch Spurs since Jose joined and their whole back line could do with upgrades imo. And then a proper Eriksen replacement as well.

That was better
Cannot agree more. Please please give him the money to strengthen the squad this year, he must be given a legitimate shot before he is written off or sacked. Also, I hope for your sake that Levy makes it clear to the players that anybody disagreeing with Jose's philosophy will be sold - no questions asked. That way he will be able to accumulate a set of players who buy into his ideology and play like their lives are on the line. Hope Spurs give him the funds and time to stamp his vision on the team despite hiccups on the pitch in terms of short-term results.

He is past it and it’s evident yet people still come out with stuff like this.

Feck me , are you deluded? Jose wrecked our club, and set us back, good luck to you then, he is going to waste money on the wrong players, and then what?

Agree with this. Levy should sell whoever Jose don't want and sign all the players he wants for his rebuild. Can see him staying long term at Spurs.

I hope this is what happens. You can see he is making us a much harder team to beat. Still lots of work to do but some promising signs at last.

Good luck, win the League on draws? Defense is always good with Jose, but attack?

Attack clearly needs a lot of work but he is focusing on our defensive shape first and it is starting to work. I'm hopeful the rest of the team will eventually gel although we need a few new faces.

How do you think the transfer window will go between Levy and José, especially during the COVID-19 year?

If José was given a decent chunk to spend (say £100m+), how would you feel about Poch not being given that? The team went stale under Poch, but a lot of that was due to a lack of investment IMO

I've no idea. Hope for the best but fear for the worst. I'd be happy if Jose got £100m to spend (he won't get anywhere near that)

:lol: There we go, from Ndombele to this.There will be more to come.

At United, he started with Schweinsteiger to Shaw to Martial to more players to Pogba to the board & end it with to his scouts. Mourinho's evolution.

Same number of wins as us but you've played a game more. Look into your xG data and it's painting a similar pic as to what we were seeing in his 2nd season with us
I'd rather not thanks, I have no interest in new bullshit stats.

This really surprised me! Certainly doesn’t fit the narrative on the cafe for sure, which includes me setting that narrative. :lol:

I still think long term he won’t be right for you, but I do like the guy and wish him well.

What's funny is he did the same at Chelsea. Had Bridge at LB wasn't good enough went for Del Horno still wasn't good enough and then got himself Cole
Tbf to him, there was no FFP at that time.

Anyways he isn't our problem now, his PC is fun when he goes against other managers in a cheeky way.

Still think he will win something at Spurs, FA, League cup or Europa. Just needs to address a few positions, DM and RB being the stand outs. Aurier is simply not good enough for a club wanting top 4 spots, yes there are other problematic positions, but given the state of the game during a pandemic that is not going to happen.

Spurs probably have enough money to bring in two, rumours they were looking at Aarons from relegated Norwich for the RB position and Hojbjerg for DM, doesnt have long left on his contract.

They have a real scatter gun approach to buying players however, no DoF so just buy whoever it seems. Im still unsure why they brought in Bergwijn? When they 100% did not need another attacking wide player and needed a genuine striker as backup to Kane. Even an older player happy to play from the bench in FA, League cup games and Europa matches. The occasional CL or prem game to alleviate how many games Kane plays, which I'm sure contributes to his injuries.

I'm technically a complete club neutral but I have a soft spot for Spurs. Having said that, there's nothing bullshit about xG as long as you have the statistical nous to use it correctly while understanding its limitations.

xG models can't currently be used for determining who "should" have won a game (which is how a lot of people are using it, and giving the entire concept a bad rep). They can, however, provide a pretty accurate picture of comparative attacking prowess over a long enough time period (i.e. a large enough sample size). The range of games being discussed here is large enough that any trends observed are worth paying attention to.

Besides all that, xG accurately identifies that Kane and Son have been two of the top four most clinical finishers in all of Europe over the last six years.

Can't agree more :lol:

We can help too by giving him back his beloved Sanchez, for free :)

Football forums are a funny place. They must one of the few places left where you can proudly bang your chest about being mathematically illiterate.

You won’t find any disagreements from Utd fans. We would love for Jose to be given the money to strengthen (destroy) your team.

Crack on, if you think Jose is going to turn spurs into some some of trophy winning force, then you are in for a big shock!
