Mourhino is going for the big one, he’s going straight for the league these season. There’s something happening at Spurs!!! The race is wide open, no team is a sure winner this season. Liverpool isn’t having it easy, City as well, Chelsea isn’t on their level best. We’ve got a season in our hands

When Levy hired Jose everyone in the press said it was a disaster the 2 are polar opposites etc. I think jose makes Levy job easier as world class players want to play for him and I think for the first time in years Levy feels confident enough in his manager that he doesn't look at spending money as a bad investment but rather a good investment

Matthew Olugbemi:
Mourinho has been widely misrepresented by the media as a chequebook manager and also of the narative that he can't work with Levy.

Jose usually buys effective players that can deliver his plan.

Porto, worked with no superstars and they became stars.
At Chelsea, sanctioned the buy of Drogba, not a star any big club would look at then. The superstars that came where basically club obsession or marketing business, buying the likes of Shevchenko and Torres.
At Inter, he worked with warriors not stars.
At Real, he brought in players that were not the Real Madrid galactico caliber type, bringing in Ozil etc.
At Chelsea again 2nd time, no superstars, Hazard became a superstar as he had his best moments under Jose.
At MUFC, the likes of Pogba was a club marketing buy, Jose wanted some efficient player that Mufc refused out of pride and their non-existent United standard claim. And we can all see even now at United that they are running after superstars and not addressing the key needs of team, no specific plan.

At Spurs now, we see now that Levy was happy to go for Jose's specific profile of players and they are not superstars and bank breaking players.
I really think Jose's time here will make people look differently at his time at Utd. He started off with a much better squad here than he did at Utd, and he has gotten a better crop of players before he's even been here for a year than he did during his entire time at Utd and I think we've spent about as much money in that time (albeit with 3 players on loan) on 9 players as Utd spent on Paul Pogba, if not slightly less. When you back a proven manager and allow him to do the things he needs to to make you into a title-winning team, you win titles.

When you give Mourinho what he needs you create a very dangerous Mourinho. I'm not getting carried away yet, but if we can take maximum points over the next few fixtures then we may be able to do something special. I think we will win a trophy, most probably the Europa league. I cant wait for the pundits to start giving Jose the respect he deserves

Cheers Alasdair, Rodan is a great signing for us, great in the air and excellent at stealing the ball from players, a great replacement for Jan, £11m is a steal as Swansea fans will tell you. Agree completely with your remarks with regards to Danny Rose, he was a good servant to the club for a long time. My one criticism for your videos mate is no adverts, if ever there was a channel worth ads its this one.
Ali, smashing this just as hard as Levy this window 👍🏻

This window is better than the post Gareth Bale one in 2013. Its ironic that he's part of this one.

I will say it again, i feel lucky i can watch your channel for free, literally you get paid to talk with Jose Mourinho and write about spurs, and we get your opinion and behind the sences news for fres, you dont care about views, i never heard you say like or subscribe you do that because you love your job and us(Spurs fans)
Thank you.

Jose was bought in for two reasons.
1 to attract the players they have in this transfer window
2 to win trophies

Levy has backed by a manger who can win trophies and made good deals to bring it players that can be worked with. Something that Poch didn't do when he got a team that also had 7 new players. This is the Spurs rebuild this time they have a manger who can win trophies.
Thanks Ali. There's a lot of excitement, but Spurs need to be consistent to succeed. As Jose said, one game at a time. West Ham will not be easy. Spurs need to be clinical, aggressive and sharp on defense. #COYS

Also sad to see things go pear-shaped for Danny Rose. When he and Kyle Walker were patrolling the touchlines, we had the best wingbacks in the League. But if the Amazon film is anything to go by, he's not helping himself. The obvious and only thing to do was to have worked very hard and made it impossible for JM to leave him out. And even if that hadn't worked, he would now be a better prospect for another team. As it is, he's made himself almost unemployable, which is a shame given both his great talent, and his long history with our club. Thanks, Danny, for all your work for us.

We had a GREAT transfer window, but Spurs already had a great team, with much more to come from the existing players. A great moment for our club.

Levy must now get credit for what he and Steve Nicholls have done this summer. No more carping. We have everything we need. Two full teams of good players, and an exceptional stadium. Oh - we needed some fans, and, just by accident, we have best fans in the world!

Thank you, Alistair, for another great review. Thanks for 'chatting Tottenham Hotspur'.
Big shame that Danny Rose has ended up without a squad number and no club to go to.
Yes, he's often spoken out when it might have been better to keep quiet, but, should be considered a club legend and respected for the great job that he did.
Thanks, Alasdair, great content as always.

James Hunter
James Hunter:
Agree re the quality of the signings Alasdair, Mourinho's 'almost' is referring to Skriniar. That player at the helm of the defence would have transformed THFC. We lack top top quality @ CB. Our existing are all pretty good, but not good enough for the top opponents, in those very tight games won on small margins. Maybe try again in January.

Capitano Steve
Capitano Steve:
I've been a Spurs fan for over 60 years and have never been so excited by a squad. Even with the double team we only had a first XI and a few others who could come in.
Over the decades we've had many good/great teams but lack of depth was frequently a problem. Now we can put out a first XI and have another first XI on the bench!
Now if you'll excuse me, as I've retired to southern Italy, I'm going to a little bar around the corner to watch the match. We've got the owner well trained, Spurs takes precedence over any Italian match 😁 COYS
After the actual Spurs matches I then always look out for your videos as the next best thing 😊 ! I can’t remember the last time I was this excited for a season, it’s very clear that there is such a buzz around us at the moment, doesn’t seem like we’re being hyped up by anyone outside of Spurs right now which isn’t a bad thing as the longer we go under the radar the better. Very tough run of fixtures next month and your right let’s see where we are after that. Come on the Spurs !!! 👊
Feel lucky to have someone like you getting the real inside stories and telling us Spurs fans in this great chilled out videos. So good to see you excited for the season ahead. I can’t remember seeing as strong a squad as now. Let’s beat the Hammers and keep moving forwards. Enjoy the game tomorrow. COYS!!
34 minutes of 24 Kt Gold? Yes please.
I don't remember being this excited to watch a league game, really hope Bale plays. Here's hoping we have another big win.

Titus Monk:
So great to see Rodon in the squad. I’m Cymraeg, so Davies, Rodon & Mr Bale in the team is a bonus for me on a personal level.

Davies has proven to be reliable if not flash at LB, like Denis Irwin without the goals.

Bale is Bale, older now and somewhat of an unknown quantity pertaining to this particular season & the rekindling of his career... we all know what he’s capable of though.

Rodon I can only hope becomes a defensive monster for us. Somewhere between Stam (he was better than Vidic IMOHO) & our own Ledley King. The welsh Chiellini! 😂 we can dream and/or joke.

Good luck to him at Spurs. And let’s give Bale a few performances to get up to speed.

If Rodon can't play on the europa squad, we could of loaned him back to Swansea for the season, continuing his development. Once dier is back, I cant see the lad playing as much as he needs to. I'm excited to see him in a spurs shirt in the future. Brilliant video again sir! Coys
