I wasn't too impressed with JMs post match interview midweek when he said we have no one on the bench.
This is similar shit he used to spout at Man U and its not the best way to endear yourself to the players imo.
If I was one of those on the bench and he said that my immediate thought would be 'well fk you.'
Also as Dele was one of those on the bench and then came on and changed the game it makes JM look bit of an idiot.
I feel if he starts publicly slagging his players then it'll only go one way, again.

I think it’s to gain sympathy and trust from Levy, so he buys him the players he wants in the summer. Smart move. He is the cunning one.

Didn't look too cunning at Chelsea and Man U. I don't think publicly slagging players is very clever at all for whatever reason but we'll see.

What press conference did u watch?
I dont remember him saying that.

in this one:

He clearly states how he wanted Dele to play from the beginning but knew he couldn't get 90 minutes out of him, the same with Ndombele.
He doesn't say anything about not having anyone on the bench...just that we have loads of injuries, which is true.
Maybe you saw a different press conference?

When did he actually do that?

I see Paul Merson is trying to get into the minds of spurs fans and players by saying " Jose feels he has made a mistake in joining spurs ".
When in fact from what I can see the fans and Jose are in alignment and happy knowing that if we don't get success this season we will next with Jose at the helm . To think this numpty is allowed to get payed to give his opinions is astounding .
He so obviously is happy to spout anything that is anti spurs or say things intended to knock the players the club and hope the fans make an atmosphere that will make Jose want to walk away or get fired as at Chelsea and Man Unt.

Merson is more of a plonker lately. Didn’t mind his comments year back or so. But now he just talks pure TRIPE!

Lad used to have competitions every night where they each chucked in a few quid and necked bottles of red to see who was the last one standing. That sort of shite takes its toll.

If Chelsea get fourth after their form in the last 4 months it'll be because everyone else blew it. Their results have been awful and somehow they are still there.
