    There seems to be quite a lot of hate for Spurs on here. I personally don't mind them as a club - some of their fans were a bit unnecessary a few years back when they were above us for a while, but they've not had a lot to crow about for the last half century so I'll let 'em off.
    However, I really dislike Mourinho's style of play and I don't care how many trophies he's won, it's not what I want to see, so I do hope they get nowhere for as long as he's in charge.

    No player is perfect all the time - except Virgil :) and I don't like getting carried away but you can only call it as and when you see ..... Curtis Jones is on the path to glory.

    I can't stand Mourinho so, by association, I dislike Spurs. Didn't mind them under Poch, they played in a similar fashion to us, developed youth and bought young sold old / high too.

    And you hit on the reasons.

    1) Mourinho. I hate any club that Mourinho manages. No exaggeration, I do think he is the worst thing to happen to football in my lifetime.

    He inspires anti-football, not just from his team, but copycats. Not saying diving never happened before Mourinho in England, but he was the first manager to make it a tactic and encourage it in his teams. Plus, he's just a toxic individual all around... Which can be amusing for a few soundbites, but I hate toxic individuals.

    Generally anyone managed by Mourinho will get my dislike by default.

    Plus the other point is, Spurs fans as a whole have been jackasses towards Liverpool in the last five or six years. There is no traditional rivalry between us, or good reason for it. I think it comes down to jealousy alone, but so many have been nasty to LFC, of course I don't want to see Spurs succeed.

    There is of course a third reason. Our legacy. I think some people (incorrectly) will see it cheapen our win last year if another "new team" breaks back into the top and winning the title after it being dominated by just a few teams for the last few decades.

    Naturally, our win was special, with a first XI that is one of the best in all history, but I feel that some people's memories will cheapen the performance of that squad if we were to lose the title to Spurs this season. I don't think it will make it less special if City win, but a Spurs title would steal our thunder a little.

    I will stick my neck out and say Spurs aren't going to win the title.

    No club will steal our thunder. If *insert random small club here* win the title, it will be because of this season's exceptional circumstances. If *insert random big club here* win the title, it will be because of this season's exceptional circumstances and the usual circumstances ie. ability to stay the distance, manage the season well, have better players, expectations of winning etc. etc. and not because everyone else collapsed which will be the biggest contributing factor if a smaller club wins it.

    Turns out Maureen was wrong... Matip was injured

    Obviously we only have one important player injured atm, that's why his team just got beat by a Liverpool team containing two 19yr old with 15 PL league games between them.

    Also he can't count, he says he can list 10 players and then only lists 9. (2 u16, 2 u21, 3 u23, 2 first teamers) 2+2+3+2=9

    He could have just said we still have very good players that form a very good team despite the injuries, he'd have achieved the same thing without sounding like a bellend

    I'm very much going to be in a minority of one, but in all honesty I quite like morinho.

    Ive said before I dont mind his "brand" of football, I can appreciate the organisation and determination it takes to play in such a way.

    As for his interviews, they do exactly what he wants, put all the attention on him and take the pressure off his team. He may sound idiotic, he may sound a ****, but its exactly what he wants, its all a show and even after all these years people still fall for it.

    Jose Mourinho is a very good manager but he's a bad losser. Imagine how pleased he was when he defeated us at Anfield when Steve Gerrard slipped. He never like it when things don't go his way.

    This has long been said of him and I couldn't disagree more. He cares for no-one but himself, he doesn't take centre-stage to take pressure of his players - it's because he needs the attention. He's perfectly happy to throw his players under the bus when it suits him so it can't be argued that he has their best interests at heart. Even last night he implied that it was Bergwijn who let him and his master-plan down.
    He's a little boy in a grown-up body - self-centred, petty and ungracious. And occasionally funny.
