    Kane is the reason why Tottenham don't need Eriksen. Dude is really good at setting other players with opportunities.

    Spurs head of the league at the moment. Glad for Mou.

    He tactically raped Pep. Gave him posession but City couldnt do shit with it. Jose is motivated, hasnt been like that since his RM days.

    Also, Spurs need to sell Alli while he still has some value. At least for 30mil, for that price any EPL club could snap him up.

    Alli won't see the pitch anymore.

    Ndombele looks a lot better, too.

    I never bought the "Mourinho's tactics don't work anymore" schtick. I thought his problem was that he lost his motivation entirely after Real Madrid. You need a strong locker room.

    It wasn’t that he lost motivation he just never had a locker room willing to do anything he told them to since inter really. Spurs players are so desperate for a trophy they run through a brick wall if he tells them to. I think mou has also learned from his last failed jobs and “modernized” his approach to man management a bit.

    Still a long road ahead for this Spurs team though.

    To a degree, his first two seasons at Real were some hardcore shit and if Barca wasn't so powerful, he would repeat Inter's success. His Real was really powerful until it all went downhill with Iker and others.

    People forget Real was as crazy attacking as Bayern in 2012.

    People talking down on Mou for all these years should just accept that they only follow the sport for the various jersey colors and the media attention it gets.

    People were rightfully criticising Mourinho due to numerous blunders on the transfer market, outdated, ineffective tactics and very poor team performances for a long stretch of time. As thatdude said, he seems to have learned a few lessons from his failures and made some changes, so good for him.

    Then again, it's always like this with you and your favorites. Despite your various useless knowledge, your bias is so ludicrous it invalidates half of what you say. Nothing was ever Mourinho's fault when he was failing to win or perform despite spending hundreds of millions. Just like nothing Conte achieved in his career was ever due to his own merit.

    I'm a huge critic of Lukaku but you make me seem like his biggest fanboy But nah dude, Mauro "benched-by-Choupo-Moting-and-Moise-Kean" Icardi is the worlds greatest forward - even greater than Cristiano Ronaldo who is a limited poacher with no other skills.

    For someone who changes his views based on what I write, you don't seem to pay that much attention to my words.

    Liverpool who were missing 5/6 of their 1st choice 11, due to injury & COVID, completely dominated Leicester who were above them in the league at the start of the match. They didn't miss a beat, Klopp has this squad so well drilled, looked like champions throughout the game. I don't see anyone giving them a real challenge again this season.

    Jota looks like a world beater in this team, it's amazing how many of the signings under Klopp have been a success, very few teams have such success in the transfer market as Liverpool have had in recent years. The only team capable of matching Liverpool's quality are currently 8 points behind in 13th, albeit with a game in hand.

    Jota is a prime example how good a player can become in a right environment. Same with Ndombele, suddenly he looks a lot better

    I've said this before, but I really think Mourinho is best suited to clubs that are at least somewhat outsiders. I remember reading that Mourinho had some trouble convincing Real Madrid players to buy into his mentality because they were very much the establishment in Spain.

    The criticism was never about Mourinho's ability to set up a defense, other than at the beginning of his spell at Spurs when they couldn't stop conceding. Man Utd under him had a very good defensive record. It was more about how he doesn't rehearse attacking movements the way most top managers do these days. It seems he has solved this problem with the Son-Kane relationship, but I'd still be a bit cautious. This has worked excellently in big games, but against smaller teams like Brighton and Burnley they've looked very disjointed, even if results have been good.

    Sadly we always seem to do the opposite get a good player put him in his worst position and and ask him to do things he cant....
    Which matches do you feel more, those with Juventus or Milan?
