Our front three when Bale signs 🔥🔥🔥
Lucas Kane Son
I was open-minded about Mourinho & I really liked the early signs & ‘new Jose’. My doubts crept in when he publicly destroyed Ndombele. Some of his decision-making around team selection then = 🤨. I’m done now. Team selections, tactics, use of subs, reliance on (bad) favourites.
Jan Vertonghen: thank you for your wonderful years of service. Thank you for being the best I’ve seen at Spurs at carrying the ball from defence into midfield. Thank you for being part of our best modern era CB partnership. Goodbye and good luck 💙
Always baffled by the amount of disrespect Ryan Sessegnon gets. 20yo (younger than Roles, Tanganga, Eyoma) & already has 130 games under his belt. Won Championship Player of the Season / Young Player of the Season. I remember when Bale had a slightly nervy, inauspicious start.
Fourth straight year, baby.
Ndombele’s first pass... probably our best pass of the match.

Harry Kane’s passing is INSANE!
Jamie Redknapp is, of course, surprised at the shape that Spurs are playing in... the same shape we have pretty much consistently played in since Mourinho arrived.
So the thing about Ollie Holt's comments about Bale being a sticking plaster... he might be right. But it ignores all of the context, all of the nostalgia, all of the fun.
Even if Bale only manages 10 matches... even if he can barely move anymore...
I AM SO EXCITED!
I definitely feel like, after the last year... we deserve today. 💙
Properly feel for Gedson. Absolutely abysmal penalty but he actually made a difference and played with a bit of spirit and fire in his belly, was willing to take his man on every time where too many constantly played safe.
I will mostly ‘stick to football’*, but for the purposes of a pinned tweet:
-If you are racist I will block & report you.
-If you threaten me with violence I will block & report you.
Thank you for the messages of support. 💙
* though I’ll still call out racism where I see it.
Harry Kane after an actual proper break is looking like actual proper Harry Kane again 🥰
Can’t say enough how important it is to report racists. Spent an hour last night going through the replies to Ian Wright’s video & barely touched the sides. Do your bit to make this platform easier for oppressed people. Imagine how it feels to read that shit as a black person.
Mourinho properly calling out Ndombele. ‘I was expecting players not tired to give more to the team... ‘somebody’ has to realise this is the PL. I hope that next season he can be fantastic...’.
Lamela absolutely bossing this midfield, even I’m surprised by this.
All I’ll say is I still firmly believe this is not Mourinho’s fault (yet 😂).
Tanguy Ndombele coming on and doing Tanguy Ndombele things. This isn’t new. He nearly always makes a difference. The thing that is new is the language around him now - language of faith and belief. Hopefully that will continue. twitter.com/hugo_prods/sta…..
Ollie Watkins is the most obvious striker target. £18m release clause, homegrown, 24, fits the profile in terms of being a CF that can also play wide (was converted from a winger), rounded skillset. He scored ten goals for the previous two seasons playing wide, 25 this season.
Definitely something to work with here. twitter.com/BnsComps/statu…..
I would love Spurs to defy the critics and finish top four. My view - just the view of some know-nothing behind a laptop - is that there is no way we can do that *unless* we integrate Ndombele, who has the potential to transform our midfield and maybe even our team.
I’ll be going to bed in a decent mood tonight. I honestly expected us to lose. I saw plenty of graft, positional discipline, actual tactics, some proper heart and, although a lot of our players were gassed, we turned it back on for the last ten. Not bad, Tottenham, not bad.
