Parked the bus! More like docked the cruise liner in front of goal.

undecided whether this is a bad thing against a team like Citeh..

To be fair our shape is good and we’ve been very disciplined with it over the first 45.

That chubby midfield fellow wearing 28 is quite a player.

That was a fucking great half of football... mainly from Citeh but we've done well on the break, been drilled on our shape and done OK.

Citeh are some side, how the fuck do you set up against a side that doesn't play a conventional formation... only thing you can do is go unconventional too...

Think Jose has got it right with 2 x RB's but we've not seen anywhere near enough of Serge going forwards to make this tactic a success...

Kanes been deep but again I understand why as he is creating space for Son and linking up with FatBelè... who has been tidy on the ball and on his standards worked his fat arse off...

Some superb tackles from all the back line and Reguilon has been a superb outlet getting forwards and linking up very very well... this kid must be the summer priority for the club as he is top top class.

Holjberg is a spoiler. Like when Palacious joined and immediately made are midfield and difficult place to be for our opponents

has been outstanding all season and especially today

Really? We must see beauty in very different ways, in my mind that was pig ugly. Nice three points, but a whole season of bus parking and counter attacking will get tedious, especially when the opposition teams figure us out

Its a big big man who can say he was wrong...

That was an absolute lesson on how ro win a football match.

I'm gonna start using his name..... that is a huge leap forwards for me and I am still not comfortable doing it...

I would say for many many Yids who like me are.... resistant.... that game right there will be enough to drag them kicking and screaming onto the Mourinho bandwagon.

You cannot argue with that result no matter how much you crave for pretty flowing technical football.... that result was superb.

Shame about Toby he has been a fucking rock and a huge part of our stability. Huge job for Rodon to fill those boots...

By the way..... I am not yet saying I am wrong. Not yet.

Don’t get me wrong mate, it’s not a great watch but against City and probably Liverpool that will be the approach.

I’d hope to see more expansive play against teams we expect to beat. I do take your point though. I wouldn’t want to watch it every week but happily take that today.

Yeah it's not what we crave as a fan base but every team barring maybe Liverpool play like that against City, they're an exceptional team and we don't have the possession based players to go toe to toe with them, so Jose resorted to doing what he does best.. It's why he's won the sheer volume of trophies he has. We won't be watching it week in week out, we're 2nd top scorers in the league, we have the players to destroy teams but sometimes you have to be a bit more pragmatic in terms of how you go about getting a result, i'm sure you'll take a few performances like that, if it means a trophy?!!.

It's so impressive what he's managed to do with this group of players over the last year. Historically he's doing exactly what he's done at pretty much every club he's been at. He gets players on his side, the togetherness and the mentality he's managed to instill in such a short of period of time, is so impressive. Watching Eric and Serge today was a microcosm of that, both so disciplined and played a blinder.

I know it wasn't pretty today but the way i was feeling when Poch got sacked and we got him in, i was so deflated, and now i feel proud as punch of our team, never thought he would make me feel like that, i feel dirty but he's done to me what he's clearly done with his players over his career, he has this innate ability to win you over, pains me to admit it but like you mate, i am definitely being won over! I even have to give kudos to Levy, he's clearly jizzed over the idea of getting Jose in for years and the money spent over the Summer, has given the club such a shot in the arm, the business done was exceptional and add to that Ndombele, who's also effectively a new signing and things look very rosey. I know things can go pear shaped very quickly but i'm buzzing right now!

Chavy, I kind of see Jose's approach to these matches as "Organized Crime". We are very disciplined & organized in our set up but it's like a crime against the club's ethos but we manage to steal the results. I agree that we won't see this week in, week out but he'll utilize it in order to get the desired results.

I believe Jose has regained that fire (if he ever lost it elsewhere) & he's ready & willing to prove many wrong about him.

Not to get too far ahead but if he wins the league with us, it will be his greatest accomplishment since he won the CL with Porto & place him back at the summit of elite coaches.

True mate but you know what, Jose ain't going anywhere for quite some time, so might as well embrace it. We'll always have the performances like the Utd, Saints and the 1st half against the Spammers to get our juices flowing. People also forget we served up some proper shit performances during the latter stages of Poch's era, where the performances were flat, sterile and insipid, so i'll take the togetherness and mental toughness of today's performance as a positive in terms of doing what was necessary to get the 3 points and a step in the right direction in trying to win some silverware.

We've won what, 3 trophies in the last 30 years, i wanna celebrate winning a trophy again, if it means having to sit through games like that, more often than we would ideally want, then so be it. I wanna win something!

Gotta say, Pep is a stubborn bugger. They need to start crossing into or box, or shooting from distance or both. Would have liked for us to have played a bit more on the front foot but that was a huge 3 points. Mourinho and Levy are still cunts though. COYS!

Despite the ultra-defensive setup, it was still easier on the eye than our efforts against Burnley, Brighton and West Brom. Good crisp passing and imaginative play with the little possession we had, and the communication and concentration under siege was really satisfying. Kudos especially to Dier, who was in his element.

Mate, it's fucking awful to watch. I did something I hardly ever do during a game, I got up and went in to the kitchen to start dinner! I watch it the same way I watch arse or Chelsea if they are on, by doing something else and checking the score.

I can't do a season of this, it will finish football for me.

Agree but it was defensively brilliant.

I’ll cop it in certain games as long as we have a go for the most part. As has been pointed out, we have hardly been negative overall. We blasted 6 past United and 5 past the Saints. We have the best goal difference in the league and sit on top of the table. I cannot stand Mourinho but it’s hard to be very critical of him right now.

I get it. I understand why some of you buggers want to have a nice big snog with Jomo. We are top of the table and that's nice, but I just cannot allow myself to believe that we will stay there. OK, we beat City, but how many times out of 100 would that happen in a game with stats like this?
SpursCity.png

The answer is not fucking many! If you want to get the tissues out and start pleasuring yourself about how great we are under wossisname then off you go, I won't be using many Kleenexes until I see us top of the table with less than ten games left to play, not less than ten played - premature celebration affects many football supporters and can be treated by a kick in the cobblers reality check.

MY PL season review under the cunt some of you seem to be loving a bit too much:

Everton - Acceptable first day jitters - 5/10
Southampton - Yeah! 9/10
Newcastle - Poxy 4/10
United - Yee haw! 10/10
West Ham - Fuck off, just fuck off 1/10
Burnley - scraped a lucky win - 5/10
Brighton - see above
West Brom - see above
City - Hung on, lucky they didn't convert any of their chances - 6/10

Summary - 2 good games, 1 not bad, 5 mediocre , 1 fucking rubbish. Even if I was being generous and said there were 3 good games, that's only 33.33% good and 66.% pony.
