Not so special anymore but good enough for Spurs?
Mourinho has cultivated siege mentalities with success at his former clubs. If he can do the same in Tottenham’s remaining 10 games, he may just be able to save his job.
The only way to silence the discord he generates is through the delivery of bragging rights; supposedly his very raison d’etre. There is just a teeny problem in that regard; we just aren’t very good at football these days.
If we all think back to why we all fell in love with Tottenham, it certainly wasn’t for the trophy count.
If Daniel Levy hasn’t already war-gamed what an expensive summer parting of the ways with Mourinho might look like, he certainly will now.
What will pain Spurs fans most is that it took until Lamela’s dismissal for Jose Mourinho’s side to really go at their rivals.
Gareth Bale has something many players at Spurs don’t have and that’s a fairytale in them…
The prospect of Bale, Son and Kane in this form being unleashed upon the Arsenal defence is almost too exciting for Tottenham fans to bear.
There is little to be said about the striker that hasn’t been written already.
