    This manager at this club. They were made for each other.

    Every interview ... everything he says is perfect. Even if we'd conceded from the disallowed late breakaway and lost ... you know what he'd've said ... and you know we'd keep going at it. We'd given the ball away cheaply over and over again, and what does he say at halftime? "I'll take the blame." Not 'stop trying it', but 'trust yourselves, and do it better'.

    I am so on board with this shit it's almost embarrassing. It's not optimism ... it's love.



    ... did I say 'almost'? :unsure:

    The step up from Celtic was asking a lot of him. To stick to his principles and prove he's right is incredible. You have something special here.

    The word authentic has been abused over the last decade, but … that’s a definition I’d ascribe to Ange.

    He will get this right. I think maybe the blip is now over after yesterday's result. We should forge ahead even without our top players. This man knows what he's doing.

    Had him at the top of my list and now you all know why haha.

    In the past, we've had the wrong manager at the right time and the right manager at the wrong time. This time, I think we've gotten the right manager at the right time.

    He is an excellent coach. You can see what he wants to do, what kind of players he needs to make it work, and, more importantly, what kind of players do not work in his system.

    My concern is with the people who run the club. If the people above Ange do not get him the players he needs, it will end like it always does with our coaches. My reservations are based on 22 years of evidence under the current ownership. The first test will be the January window. If we don't get the reinforcements we need, as was the case this summer, we will know it's business as usual at Tottenham and it's just a matter of time before Ange leaves for a club that will back him.

    No coach is perfect. He does some interesting, innovative things, and some dumb things, like playing a high line against Chelsea while a man down which gifted them 3 goals.

    He will get it right if his effing stupid players stop getting sent off for studs first tackles. I'd have thought that he's the sort of coach who'd GRILL it into his players to keep their discipline. He has work to do on that.
