    The sad demise of Tot Ten Ham Hotspur

    Big drop off since challenging 2015 to 2019.

    They’re a team that I’ve got an irrational dislike for, but I have to say disallowing their first goal today was absolutely ridiculous. The guy was fouled, then had the balls kicked against him and was judged to have handled it. Maybe I’m missing something.
    I bet you can squeal like a pig!

    Yeah the new handball of any kind rule is just bad. They got screwed over there. Credit to Sheffield for exposing just how bad Sours defense is. Spurs are easily the most disappointing side of the season. I’m ok with that lol.

    They were wobbling on their feet in the run-up to the 18/19 Champion's League Final (their European run masked some developing issues) and we dealt them a knockout blow from which they simply have not recovered.

    It's great.

    Ndombele wants to leave allegedly.

    Just thinking, of all the Managers I wouldn't want to get through a difficult spell, Mourinho is high on the list.

    They have the stadium issue, they have taken out an enormous loan and they look unlikely to attain Champion's League football.

    The truly beautiful part? They probably can't financially afford to pay Mourinho off to leave, so they are stuck in this situation for a time yet.

    The biggest case of "missed the boat" ever. They should have spent after the Leicester title,they were primed for a golden spell and fucked it right up by being hesitant and overall tight in the transfer market.
    I've said for years now their team is missing that stardust. Aside from Kane theres no world class players. Maybe Alderweireld but probably not now, they dont have that difference maker in the side and their chance has well and truly gone.
    Huge mistake bringing in Mourinho too. He was not the man they needed.
    Last season they were more desperate than we were for that CL. It would have hurt us but Klopp would still be there and we'd have dusted ourselves off and got on with it. With Spurs you really felt it was all or nothing. Their fans must be devastated watching what's happening.

    Didn't see their match but apparently they were awful and were lucky to escape from mighty Bournemouth with a point. Kane and Son are too good for them and I can see them handing in transfer requests before too long. Mourinho will be sacked before the end of next season too I think

    Levy is a moron. Hes trying to make Spurs financially sound, which Is a good plan. so hes cutting funds for transfers.Yet hes the highest paid executive in English football. how about he cuts his own wages as well??

    To be fair, they had one of the clearest penaltys denied very early on in the game. That said, they were pretty dreadful after that. Jose really doesn’t look like he gives a shit.
