Agreed. The football we’re playing feels like we’re back in the Gerry Francis or George Graham days. At least Kane and Moussa are back.
I'm actually so surprised how much Tottentham are playing like Mourinho's united. I really wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt when he was sacked by united, but during the 1-1 draw with united last Friday, I was thinking to myself how if I was a spurs fan, I would have hated watching that game.
It just reminded me of the countless united games I watched under him that were the same formula. Nullify the other team with compact, negative, boring football, only bringing excitement on the rare successful counter-attack. Then inevitably not get as much out of the game as you would want. I know this isn't exactly anything new but the reluctance to try anything new must be quite alarming for spurs fans. Already stories coming out about falling out with players, in this case Ndombele.
I'm still so baffled by him being offered that job. Poch was fucking class and on his way to good things. Plus he was rarely perceived negatively by the media or other fans.
unbelievably boring to watch. a 2-0 win against a sort of rival (West Ham) still feels boring as shit. Ndombele and Kane are totally wasted in this system, and we're not defensively solid enough to effectively play Mourinho ball. I'd cut an arm off to have Poch back. Would rather have got relegated with him than get 6th with Mourinho. Even under Sherwood, Redknapp, Jol etc we were better than we are now, often with a much worse squad
