Stan Collymore saying :-

Amazing how some have bought into "Mourinho the winner" without any regard for how he leaves clubs.

Unbalanced, fractured, overspending,soulless.

Everything Spurs tried to avoid.

Good luck, I like Spurs a lot, but it's not how this man comes in, it's how he'll leave you.

Benitez has a pretty good record on no money.

The cynic in me is that Mourinho has been brought in as the 'bad guy' who sells Kane to balance the books for the new stadium.

Jose's two greatest triumphs happened at clubs where he spent comparatively little, Porto 2004 and and Inter 2010.

We all hate poverty, war, and injustice.

The Surly One back in the Premiership has completely spoiled my day. I'll get over it by tomorrow, but Spurs fans will be scarred for life. ☹

Has Levy forgotten the state he left Man U in after shelling out plenty for the likes of Pogba? I doubt Spurs will offer him a bigger war chest than Man U.

What about the playing style? Spurs under Poch were a pleasure to watch. When has Jose played expansive football?

Spurs attacking players are going to be in for a shock. I feel for the likes of Kane and others because they aren't going to enjoy playing for Jose.

Style can just gtf as far as Jose concerned. All that counts is winning. If that necessitates kicking, biting and scratching, so be it. He likes everybody in the squad to defend together. Remember him falling out with Hazard at Chelsea for not tracking back?

I can see the likes of Kane and Eriksson bailing out at the first opportunity.

I know right, it’s almost like he took spurs from being a mediocre team to being a consistent top 4 and title challenging team, Or to a champions league final on a smaller budget than those around him.

How many trophies did he win ?


Aye, cos that's all that matter, right? To be second is nowhere....

I'll be watching the Spurs revolution with interest. It's not so long ago that Jose was failing at Man U and Pocchetino was being tipped to succeed him.

Football surely is based on success, Jose apart from Fergie is the best manager in last 10/15 years. Won trophies everywhere he’s been, pochettino won absolutely nothing and isn’t that great a manager imo

That’s utter nonsense. If you are basing it purely on success then Guardiola is a far more successful manager than Mourinho. Mourinho failed at Real Madrid, chelsea mark II and Man Utd.

It's taken Jürgen Klopp a few trophy less seasons to build his Liverpool team into a side that can now win titles on the back of the Champions League success. None of that can happen immediately and while Spurs have had a faltering season this time, they have been making progress year in year out and so the decision to sack Poch was wrong on so many levels.
There is a natural feel when a manager has taken a team as far as he can go. I just didn't feel it in his case.
Signing Mourinho is an act of desperation and will backfire.

I agree partly with you GG but your anti Mourinho agenda makes it hard to take you serious. The guys a serial winner, Champions League with Porto and Inter on an absolute shoestring to Europe's apparent elite. Even at Man U, won the Europa League and FA Cup, no one has come close to that since Fergie, granted it ended fairly badly. There is no doubt this will go one of two ways but I don't think he will have the pressure he had at Man U or Chelsea Mk2 and I can see him doing well there even if the football is woeful.

Awight Pat!

I think Mourinho may give the Spurs fans the silverware they crave in the short term. However, he’s bound to fall out with the powers that be there and I fear in 3 years time they’ll be in a worst situation than they are now.

Much as I like Poch I think he felt undermined there and looked to have fallen out of love with them - I felt a change was inevitable but not sure this is the right one. Klopp and Guardiola have shown you can be both exciting and successful at the same time - Mourinho is so stubborn he’ll be determined to prove he can still beat them without changing his own style - time will tell but I suspect he’s wrong.

Obviously having some of the most talented attacking players on the planet has nothing to do with their success.

The only titles that really matter these days is the EPL or the CL... Everything else is chicken feed.
So the question is.. Or should be...
Will Spurs give the special one enough money to mount a challenge for either? 🤔

I don't have an "agenda" against Mourinho, Frank, I just don't like him or more accurately, his managerial philosophy, which is basically that it doesn't matter how you win, as long as you win. Do you remember the two Inter-Barca CL semi-final ties? Or even the Porto-Celtic UEFA Cup final? Or again Real's performances v Barca which included him poking Tito Villanueva in the eye?

Anyway, just cos I don't like the guy, doesn't mean my opinion is inadmissible. By that logic, we can only consider the comments of those who think he's a great manager cos he's won a wheen of trophies. It would be interesting to have a survey among fans of clubs he's managed previously with a simple Jose - aye or no. I suspect that only at Inter would the "ayes" have it, but concede it would be close at Chelsea and Porto.

Eta. As I recall, Man U were completely outplayed by Southampton in the League Cup final and Ajax were effectively strangled by his tactics in the Europa final. There's no doubt his style wins trophies but, as you yourself concede, the football is woeful. Spurs fans would put up with him if he did win the EPL - they were last Champions in 1961 but to win it now would require zillions and the club hasn't spent anything this year. What makes you think Levy will suddenly start throwing it around like confetti?
