Okay enough of the dross... Expectations have clearly lowered these last few seasons. Strange since a year or two back Spurs never had it so good in their history.. win percentage wise that is.. yet the malcontents still waffled on. Now the malaise has truly set in the bar has most definitely lowered for all and some... amusing. So what’s happened to Spurs since the heights of 16/17? Why the substantial drop off since the beginning of 2019 with pretty much the same squad? A few reasons... but the most obvious? Dembele. Absolute world class midfielder not remotely replaced (Ndombele has a chance to do so but rarely ever on the pitch). Tottenham midfield is ultra lite... even with Sissoko’s emergence/resurgence. There’s not a player among them capable of dominating possession and the greater reliance on Winks the more evident this becomes. The last year under Poch? Spurs became a counter attacking team... no different to what Mourinho now attempts to offer. Perhaps results are indeed all that matters.. had Spurs won the CL that night against a Liverpool team absolutely ripe for the taking then who could argue? but my God is it dross to watch. The golden age has passed... trophy less for sure... but it will endure nevertheless with the memory of some truly dominant football on a weekly basis for a number of years. Will there be a renaissance? No... not with this squad. The defence is past it... the midfield seriously lacks class. Can they jag a domestic trophy? Yes... but seriously who gives a f#*k? The football absolutely sucks.
