Dead man walking

Beggars belief that a manager well qualified and decorated, can make the same mistakes over and over again, with the same bunch of players?

I am not a manager but I did play this game, and it should be coached the mistakes out of the players, so they don't fall for it again and again.

In every game, where Spurs led 1-0, the same pattern in the second half.


The team just gets drawn into going backward, more and more, encouraging the opposition to have the space in front of their midfield and invade Spurs area, and then they mount attack and from one of them, get a goal.

Surely, the players are told not to drop deep in the second half. Too deep.

And almost the same in every game. Once the opposition score, Spurs then suddenly are on the forward and makes you wonder why they weren't on the front foot before?

I was shocked when I saw the line-up, never assumed that Dele won't ebe playing tonight.

The trio of Son, Dele and Kane served Poch so well in many games, so why have we stopped seeing this?

We have lost momentum in the league and getting into top 4 is going to be a tall order now, needing others to drop points.

I'd rather we don't sack the manager half way through the season and specially if he hasn't been given his full season yet.

But there is already unrest amongst the indigenous and some are even baying for his blood.

Like I said, it's not the right time to do such things.

Disappointed but I have seen worse at Spurs and it is hard to swallow such playstyle after being with Poch and his flair/attack style.

I praised Jose when we were scoring the goals for fun, and rightly so, in fact every Spurs fan on here did the same. That was when we were scoring for fun. Then came a series tough game against the top sides, and Jose rediscovered that he could get points by being defensive, something that almost all Spurs fans were shocked with.
It was bitter pill to swallow but while winning no one complained. Now that we are not winning games that we should, the unrest has started.

He is dead man walking Jose.

It's a factual comment tbf.

Albeit ignores the bigger picture.

People that narrowly deal in solely facts are some of the stupidest people on the planet.

4 more points than we had at this point last season, and that's when we started so badly the manager got sacked
----------------------------------------------------------------------
How many points where you off top last season and where you in a cup final when Poch got the boot?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yeah but that's not the point?

This is a supporsedly a top manager?
Yet we are making the same mistakes over and over?

Some of us knew where we were headed the moment he was appointed.

Jose OUT

I'm not sure Spurs strength in depth is all it's made out to be by some. Certainly in certain key positions.

You are dropping an alarming amount of points from winning positions.You are also the side that are the best in the league for first half performances,so that goes hand in hand it a perverse way.

Manchester United are one of the worst teams in the league for conceding the first goal,but they sit top of the league.

The league is a strange one this year,who would have thought that City would be the lowest scorers out of the top 9 teams in the league after 17 games.

The likes of tonight,if Son's shot was 2 inches closer it would have gone in and at 2-0 up you would have won.

Yeah but we are playing like Sissoko up the top, while Bale and Dele in the bench? In what world?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
That’s Jose though. I thought he’d refound his mojo?

It's most definitely good enough to not get pegged back during the majority of a second half against the 18th placed team, at home, when we have a lead.

We should have won that game. Put Bale or Dele in place of Sissoko and we have more chance of winning the game. I mean who the hell cares about Bale's deficiencies in defence when we're going to sit back and concede an equaliser anyway?
