Well with football back this weekend

for Spurs, and with Spring in the air, I am walking about now with a spring in my step. The age of romanticism is still with us.

What a difference a few months have made. Remember back to last Sept/Oct time when it was all beginning to collapse around us, with a record home European defeat to Bayern, humiliation at Colchester, and a Prem low at Brighton. So what`s changed, well the manager obviously, but new players coming in, defence looking better, results being ground out, instead of just collapsing at the first sign of any set back in a match. Gritty wins over Wolves and Man City and Southampton in the Cup are getting the season back on track very nicely.

I like the look of our two new players that Jose has brought in. Gedson and Steven Bergwijn, both look real quality, and will play a big part in the second half of the season. We still have our continual sicknotes, Ndombele being the main culprit, but Lo Celso has gone missing again, and looks to be not available again this weekend. But should have more than enough cover now to compensate for the odd injury. Ben Davies coming back is a huge plus, the left back position has been a nightmare all season, so he should plug that back. The defence then will look reasonably solid again. Aurier, Toby, Tanganga/Sanchez, Davies. Midfield without a combination of Dier and Winks is looking OK as well, and up front, Spurs are still scoring plenty even without the main man.

I expect a Spurs win this weekend, I am going for something like 3-0. The players have had a rest, so no excuses, should be up and running. Then after Villa it is the big one midweek, CL football back.

Indeed it is exciting times if you are a Spurs supporter, everyting to play for Top Four, CL and FA Cup to go for. What`s not to like about the next three months. All the doomsters can lay low for a bit now.

PS Oh and Liverpool fans laughing at our stadium. Have you seen their antequated 19th century shed they call a stadium. Honestly you couldn`t make it up.

I tell you what I’m NOT excited by, the dreary long ball football. If we are being forced to endure it, there should be silverware at the end.

Jose is George Graham 2:0, tolerated at best.

I can just about live with the football if we get the results or performances. So far there hasn't been enough of the one to justify the other.

If we fail to get top 4 or win the FA cup/CL from this position then Jose failed this season
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Totally failed.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I dont 100% agree but lets call it for was it is.... Levy has hired Jose on massive money to get top 4, nothing else, not outperform Poch over some comparable time period. This feels like some kind of metric applied to this whole situation by "Poch Fanboys"
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I don`t think you can say he hired Jose to get top four this season, he was nearly a dozen points of that target when he was hired, so very unlikely that was his brief. I think he was firstly hired to steady the ship, then to win trophies over the next two or three seasons.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
We were never getting relegated, Its all about money mate.... That stadium is gonna look facking stupid hosting Ropey league footy

False. José has gotten us into this position.

We were miles behind with Poch.

José will get us into the top 4.

Oh, and thanks for filtering me Someone can't take a joke

No, because he has had to sort out the mess he inherited. He needs at least two full seasons to bring the glory days back to WHL, he may do it quicker. But he is going in the right direction, so I am a patient man.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
What is this constant carp that he needs 2 full seasons? since when has Mou hung around long enough to even contemplate a rebuild? his philosophy is buy buy buy preferably using his best mate agent. Load of old tosh and tbh for 15 million a year he gets the rest of this season thats it
