Menos Hiras – How Jose Can Improve Spurs in the Summer

Listen to this article

Myself and my very good friend Menos Hiras have decided to cancel the rest of the Premier League season, such has been the form Tottenham Hotspur since August. We have both watched, cried and shouted at the television as the season has unfolded, and we have been frankly terrible. We have lost our great manager and he was replaced with the loathsome Jose Mourinho, but Menos and I are optimistic types and we have an eye on summer already, thinking about what on Earth we can do to fix this dreadful team that we have, and here is our take on it.


Despite being known for having great defenses, it is fair to say that this is not where Jose has made his mark, as yet anyway. Jan Vertonghen will likely go at the end of the season and although that’ll be sad for fans, it probably is time. That leaves us with young Tanganga to slot in alongside Toby or Sanchez but we will need back up. We are also going to need a left-back, possibly two, in order to fill the Danny Rose-seized gap, and Sessegnon for me isn’t the man to play there unless Jose goes with a back 3 and two wingbacks. Two defenders at least are what we need.


I have grown quite tired of people saying that Spurs can’t sign a striker who will want to come because they know that they are going to be playing behind Kane. Big clubs around the world have been managing this for years and there is no reason why Spurs cannot do the same. There was a hope that young Troy Parrott would get the chance that Spurs fans have been hoping for but it seems clear that Jose is not up for playing him, hence the need to go out and get a striker. Harry Kane has missed 3 months at least in each of the last 3 seasons, which indicates that we have to have a backup if we are going to have any hope whatsoever of winning anything at all.

Defensive Midfield

Ndombele hasn’t hit the ground running as we first thought, and he looks completely out of his depth, to be honest. With that being said it is a tough position to get to grips within the Premier League, so he will need a bit of time. Nonetheless, he needs support and we are thin on the ground in that area, not to mention the fact that Wanyama has now left. Spurs will need back up in this position.


I genuinely believe that Jose Mourinho is the worst thing that has happened to this football club for some time and the absolute truth of it is that if he really wants to help us, he could walk out of the door and let a young, fresh and inventive manager come and change the culture of the place.
