  1. The Mourinho Thread

    Dec 4 - Man United v Spurs Dec 22 - Spurs v Chelsea Fun days next month!
  2. The English Football Thread

    Oh he can but that was more than 15 years ago at Porto. If he bins all his usual BS stuff and shows he can evolve, then there is a good manager there but there hasn’t been much of that in recent years. So let’s see. Whether it was a swap deal or not, they still splashed out the money. They still decided it was the best course of action in that Eto’o was a better fit for what Mourinho wanted. Calling us a mid table team before he arrived is a bit much, no? We finished 2nd the season before he came and in the Top 6 in 7 seasons prior while winning trophies along the way. Spurs have only 1 trophy to show for in 20+ years along with some Top 4 finishes. There’s no excuse for what he did and how he behaved in 2015/16, regardless of whether he got what he wanted.

  5. The English Football Thread

    Spending big money is still spending big money. Besides, you’re counting just 2 clubs. What about Chelsea (twice), Real Madrid and Man United? Main point here is he’s always gone to clubs with big spending power - apart from Porto but that was more than 15 years ago - and Spurs don’t quite fit the bill. Our situation in 2004/05 was somewhat different than now. It allowed a tad more room to get young and upcoming players and build from there. Moreover, Mourinho spent quite a bit during his first spell here, let’s not forget that. If Mourinho has suddenly made 180 degrees change, then fair play but if his recent history is anything to go by, then this won’t go well at Spurs because he’s not going to be able to spend big money. When he came back here in 2013, he looked like a changed man, calling himself ‘The Happy One’ and all that but it didn’t take long before he reverted to his old self.

    Mourinho spent approximately 150 million across 2 seasons at Inter Milan. The transfer market may not been so busted like now 10-11 years ago but he still went out there and spent. It's only at Porto where he didn't have big spending budget. Otherwise, he's pretty much spent big with other clubs and always want big signings. And when he doesn't get what he wants, he throws his toys out of the pram. It's been built on players doing his bidding? Doesn't that apply to every other manager? Every manager go out there to spend and buy players that fit what they want and Mourinho has been one of the very few managers who's been able to spend A LOT. He spent like over 300 million at United, for example, it got him/them nowhere. Mourinho might be okay with not challenging for trophies immediately but after a season or two perhaps, he would want to do so and that means, he would want to spend (similar to our case in 2013/14 & 2014/15) and Levy has been very stingy when it comes to spending.

    Do people actually still care which club he manages these days? I know he's our most successful manager but he burnt that Chelsea bridge long ago.

    Pochettino was unhappy at Spurs because Daniel Levy didn't want to spend and now he's gonna get Mourinho, who wants to spend hundreds of millions of dollars, to replace Pochettino?!
