Tottenham vs. Fulham reaction: I have NO SYMPATHY for Spurs! - Craig Burley | ESPN FC

Tottenham has just one win in their last six Premier League games and the ESPN FC panel are none too happy about Jose Mourinho's defensive tactics. Craig Burley, Jurgen Klinsmann and Frank Leboeuf share their thoughts on Tottenham's 1-1 draw vs. Fulham with the crew agreeing Spurs should be dominating more games. Burley and Leboeuf place the blame squarely on Mourinho, with both wondering if the manager will ever evolve his tactics. The guys also discuss Gareth Bale starting on the bench and wonder why he hasn't played more this season.

Classic Jose. Score 1 then park the bus with 9 players in the back. Never change Jose.

As expected Mourinho parked the bus in 2nd half, fulham totally deserved this result. There is no way they can make it to top 4.

Mourinho has done this his whole career the difference was at Chelsea if they went 1 up they would then end the game with a clean sheet
Abu Ceesay
Abu Ceesay:
It's understandable to be defensive and play counter against likes of Liverpool and Manchester city but using the same tactics against teams struggling at the relegation zone is a big disgrace to mourinho. It's the one thing why he will not have any bigger job than Tottenham

Craig is giving Jose credit for being able to do something different, well, the truth is he can't, Mourinho ball is all he knows.
Chaz Clifford
Chaz Clifford:
This game has summed up Mourinho In the last couple years. He relies on collective solidity to earn him a clean sheet and individual quality to win him the game. The Mourinho of old was much more pragmatic, now he is more reliant on individual quality as he has relied completely on counter attacks

Now people would understand why many United fans were happy when Jose was sacked in 2018. It’s not the result but the style of play that hurts most.

Yeidon Sancho:
It must be so sad to watch your team just for the score. Having Mourinho or Simeone as your manager must be torture. And again, there are many different ways to feel and play football, different paths to victories. I want to enjoy the 90 minutes I spend watching my team play.

I watched Fulham played yesterday with full admiration for the team and the coach and I couldn't but pray for them to comfortably come out of relegation by end of the season. Mourinho's addiction to this park the bus and counter tactics is the beginning of his downfall in Tottenham. This system isn't working anymore and I thought he should have seen it weeks ago. But huge credit is what Craig Burley should give Fulham', they deserve some respect

Craig you still remember how United slapped your team 4-0 (think it was 94-95 season) and you had a stinker of a game and were subbed at half time?

Sissoko, Holjbeg, Winks, Ndombele all start together while Bale, Lucas, Alle are on the bench.... LOL I'm relieve I dont have to watch that anymore.... Thats Like playing Fred, Mctominay, Matic and Pogba in Midfield while bruno, rashford on bench

When Jose arrived, spurs were blowing teams away by 2/3 goals. Now he is reverting back to his original style where he gets the early lead and is happy to sit back and invite pressure onto his team for the game

We have left 10 points out there, in games we had a lead ... if we get even half of those, we're alone on top of the table. Gotta score when you have the chances. Defense ain't the problem.

Getting a little disappointed with Jose’s tactics. Tottenham have been leading with a goal and getting defensive right away for several matches in a row now and always end up conceding a goal at the end. Something needs to change ASAP.

This season is crazy. Top 12 ish teams have a shot a Europa. 7 or 8 of those could challenge for a champions league spot and 3 or 4 real title challengers. Can't wait to see how this campaign finishes.

Come on you Saints!!! Let's get top 7!!!!

If Arsenal win today There will just be a 4 point gap between spurs and Arsenal.
cvarikos
cvarikos:
The major flaw with Joses approach is that the human brain finds it difficult to transition from one mindset to a completely different one. Its much better at making small changes. You see with City they play the same way regardless of the score - they play possession, take some chances, go forward and it keeps the players 'interested' in the game. If the skysports website is correct it said Spurs played 4-2-3-1 .. thats a formation you'd use when you badly needed a result (with an out of form team). At home to Fulham, I'd like to see them go for it .. 4-3-3.
