Couldn’t agree more Deki!!
(On Ange)


"I love exactly his mentality because that's how I want to live my life. We have to grow, but the best thing in life is not be afraid of anything and just go.
"Doesn't matter who you're playing against or what you're doing in life, just go. And if it messes up, it messes up. You did it with your heart. You're not afraid.
"You're trying to win the game, not trying to lose the game. I love the [manager's] game plan. It's hard, because City are one of the best teams in the world and everything was not perfect, but second half, with 10 players out, playing like this is unbelievable for him and also for the team.
"So I really, really like him [Postecoglou] a lot. His tactics, his mentality, that's the guy you want to work with! 'No fear, just go!' I'm happy to work with him every day."
He added: "We proved we can play against anybody, without a lot of good players. We just have to grow a little bit mentally and we're going to be at the top. That's the only thing missing. The football is there. The coach is there. We have everything at Tottenham."

IMHO yesterday showed that we are a lot closer to having a decent squad than we thought
We have had 12 Regular starters out learning a new system this season, having lost Kane as the season started.

Yes we lost 3 on the trot, though any team would with our key players out some of the time we were the better team in the 3 we lost. The Chelseas game was a freak. We were the better side, till romero and udogie lost the plot. The same with Villa when Cash smashed Bents . I really feel it was a deliberate and Cash should have got a red and definitely a retrospective red.

The interesting thing is how Ange has adapted to the adversity, and proved that even without Maddison, Peresic, Romero, VDV, Bents, Sarr, the "Harry Kane reserve team" can go away to arguably the best team in the world with no recognised CH and get a 3-3 draw. Especially as a lot of the side that were on the pitch could not sting a pass together under Conte.
For me ta miracle thats up there with................. walking on water.
No wonder they call him Ange


I honestly think it is not inconceivable for us to acheive great things this season, if we can get some consistency in the next few games. We have to do it in the next few games till XMAS, as we get players back.
I believe our first team when fully fit is actully a match for anyone in this league.

I have been watching spurs for an extremely long time and its the most excited i have been about our prospects since the early 60s.

We just need to stay in touch with the top as much as we can and try to get our players back as quickly as possible. If we can do that then there's no limit to where this squad could finish.

I truly believe we are on the brink of something special.

As I reflect on this season under Ange, I can't help but consider whether anyone truly cares about our final standing. The journey we've been on together has been nothing short of extraordinary.

The emotional highs and shared celebrations we've experienced as a family of fans have created a bond that transcends the traditional expectations of a football season. Ange's influence has not only shaped our playing style but has woven moments of joy, excitement, and even occasional heartbreak into the fabric of our collective experience.

So, as we look ahead to the remaining games, the outcome, honestly, takes a backseat for me. Whether we win or lose the next 20 games, it's the memories we've forged together, the unique moments we've shared, that will endure. Here's to the wonderful journey we've experienced as a community and the countless memories created, especially with my 11-year-old son, who has been an integral part of this footballing adventure.

COYS! 💙

After these joyful moments, I honestly don't care if we end up at 15th place. It's the experiences we've shared that matter most.

My positivity for him just grows for the subs he threw on can always be trusted with winning in mind. When Conte put on players like Skipp, you know he was just trying to limit the damage. With Big Ange, he actually tweaked the positioning slightly but still thinking to get something out of the game. That was nothing short of amazing. Who would have thought Skipp to come on could help us to equalise?!

Maybe in 6 months we might change our minds.

But I completely understand why he won’t change his philosophy, even with nine men, because how are the players ever gonna buy into it, if he doesn’t go ahead regardless with the high line, playing out the back, and High press.

I can’t understand how pundits can not understand what he is trying to achieve. To change philosophy, would create doubt, and undermine everything!


I think the players respect the fact that they know exactly what they are gonna do, the way we gonna play. No Quarter is given and the mentally to keep coming back and keep going, playing without fear is essential regardless of the score. in the long run it will pay off, you can’t change your style because some players are not fit, that would be an indication of weekness

Ange definitely has massive balls, and you can see that rubbing off on the players.

It annoys me when people say we should change tactic

Well we played very deep last year and we still conceded a tonne. Not to mention we never looked like scoring, least now it’s relentless attacking, beautiful football!

He makes me believe we can still win the league and the FA Cup. I just can't ignore it. I sit back every match, even the losses, and I'm thinking, "How in the world did he get them to do that?"

And we're not even to Christmas yet in his first season. We're going to be a handful in the New Year once again and watch out because it might get a little insane and the hype train is going to start going and going again

Simon Jordan and Souness were talking about this yesterday. Souness said there's no way the press was going to work with 9, and Jordan said he thinks, once everyone's fully bought into the system, he may well play differently with 9 men, but now's not the time to change things up.

If you’re of a nervous disposition, Ange is not the manager for you. It’s not often that teams go to City and put Rodri on the back foot. Can only be done if you’re prepared to take risks and play out from the back.

To be honest I’m never not nervous playing Pep’s City. Even when the team has been set up much more defensively we still concede plenty of chances to them. In fact sometimes i find it even more nerve wracking to set up so defensively because we spend the whole game inviting and soaking up pressure.

Was nervous last year; this year, we'll concede chances but I know we'll give back as good as we get.
