Hi all, my latest blog is looking at Mourinho and asking if he can be the man he once was (winning trophies)? Under Levy, we’ve only won one trophy (League Cup). With been near brides a few times, but never quite getting over the threshold. Mourinho is by far the most successful manage we’ve had at this ground, and a lot is riding in his appointment.

Can Mourinho be the God he once was and bring us – finally – Glory?
As we all know, Mourinho has been successful at all the clubs that he has managed and has the medals and trophies to show for it. In fact, he is one of the world’s greatest football managers; he has achieved excellent success throughout the world. We – that is Spurs – have to go back to Keith Burkenshaw to see what real success was like (and I can)… and even then we didn’t win the league. For that, we have to go back to Bill Nicholson, and 10 years before that then we are looking at Arthur Rowe (1950/ 51): that is it, just two League titles. Since Levy has come to the club, we’ve only managed to win the great (my humour) League Cup, and that was in 2008. Pochettino came, saw and was sacked. Then the “Special One” or “Lucky One” came to our club. Unfortunately, he was affected by the sickness of Pochettino and staggered and stuttered until the COVID-19 virus came to his and our rescue. And rescue it was, we then went from 14th to 6th and into the Europa League. Thursday football here we come!!!
At the beginning of this season, he will, no doubt, along with Levy, sit back and take stock. Buy, sell and build; ready and waiting to show everybody what he is truly made off.
However, after a few years of not living up to his reputation, I am hoping that the 2020/21 season could see The Special One reclaim his crown. His appointment of head coach at Spurs took the Sports Journalist by surprise. Mainly because everybody knew how tight Levy can be with the club’s purse strings.
As I’ve pointed out, success has not been a common occurrence at our club for many years, so ending our trophy deficiency, which has lasted for over a decade would take a special kind of manager/ coach to put us back on the road that Bill Nicholson and Arthur Rowe had set out. And “Special” being the operative word.
