First Mourinho, Then Conte, Now Postecoglou: Is Tottenham the Problem?

Ange Postecoglou claimed the “fundamentals” at Tottenham Hotspur were “pretty fragile” after their 2-0 home defeat to Manchester City.

The Greek-Australian player has largely united the Spurs in his first season as head coach, but threatened to spark a feud within the fanbase with comments after the defeat.

Tottenham fans were divided over whether they wanted to lose the game against City to stop rivals Arsenal from winning the league. However, Postecoglou did not explicitly say that this was the reason for his anger. However, he suggested the atmosphere was “different” on Tuesday. and previously the crowd had helped propel the team to late victories.

This is not the first time a Tottenham manager has called out the club for internal disagreements. Antonio Conte left the club after an explosive press conference in which he criticized the club’s recent history and players, while Jose Mourinho keeps mentioning that Daniel Levy sacked him days before a cup final and the coronavirus pandemic led to him never had a real connection to the club.

Are all three insults related? Is Tottenham really the common problem?

Tottenham’s trophy drought, which will last at least 17 years, has compounded perceived failures during their time as a Big Six club. They find themselves in a strange situation where they are always good enough to compete with the best, but can never quite topple them all at once.

Still, it can’t be a coincidence that this drought has continued for so long – even clubs like Portsmouth and Wigan Athletic have won major trophies more recently than Spurs. Since winning the League Cup in 2008, Tottenham have been beaten in four finals and six semi-finals.

Mauricio Pochettino, now at Chelsea, revealed earlier this season that his job at Tottenham was to make them a consistent Champions League team so the club could finance its new stadium. Such ambition made sense back then, but now it’s time to change the mentality.

Making the leap from contender to serial winner is difficult when you’ve already reached a certain level of overwhelm, especially if it’s a Premier League club. They will win the title again at some point and they are well placed with a manager like Postecoglou – an excellent coach with progressive principles that suit Spurs’ format.

After moving through Mourinho and Conte, it is time for Tottenham to let Postecoglou have his way. If he says that there is a problem and that the fundamentals are quite fragile, he should be allowed to find and implement solutions.
