Happy Monday to everyone, especially Heung-Min Son.
Well folks, just when all hope seemed lost in the first half at St Mary’s yesterday, Spurs pull a rabbit from the hat.
If at the interval you told me we’d win the game 5-2, I would have laughed at you. Just another day being a Spurs fan I suppose!
Right, let’s get stuck in…
As far as weeks go, I’d say we’ve had a pretty good one at Tottenham – wouldn’t you agree?
Two wins, plenty of goals, and a certain someone came home, but more on that in a bit!
Yesterday was a right mixed bag, wasn’t it? A sloppy start suddenly turned into an absolute masterclass from Sonny and Harry, with Tanguy and Gio both looking superb also.
I don’t think I’ve seen a duo link up in a single game as well as Kane and Son did for a long time, least not in Spurs shirts. They were just utterly magnificent, you can’t say more than that.
Credit goes to Mourinho also, I must add. Although playing on the counter does open us up to being vulnerable, when it works, it works.
We can’t talk about yesterday without talking about the real man of the match. No, not the splendid Sonny, but instead one of our own.
I can’t get over just how good Kane was yesterday. As Jose said at full-time, the sign of a great player is that they’re also a great team player, and yesterday was the ultimate example of that.
When Kane drops deeper with the ball at his feet, you immediately know something special is about to happen. If that had been Kevin de Bruyne yesterday, pundits would talk about it for years to come.
I’ve said it for a long time now, but if Harry was a midfielder, he’d be considered one of the best passers in the world.
Never leave us, Harry – you magnificent beast.
GARETH RETURNS HOME
I’m not crying, you’re crying.
When I got word through early this week that there was a chance Gareth Bale could be returning to Spurs, it’s all I could think about non-stop.
The whole reason we love football is for moments like this. The romantic homecoming, the superstar signing, the promise of past glories once again.
I cannot wait to see him in a Spurs shirt again, and what a devastating shame it won’t be in front of 62,000 fans all shouting his name.
And if you’re worried about him not recapturing his form of old, think about it this way: regardless of his back-story with Spurs, imagine if we’d signed a four-time Champions League winner with 105 goals for Real Madrid. Incredible scenes.
One thing I was eager not to do this week was to overlook our other signing, the incredibly talented Sergio Reguilon.
The 23-year-old brings a real vibrancy to left-back, and is certainly an area of the pitch we desperately needed strengthening with the imminent departure of Danny Rose.
Reguilon, who won the Europa League with Sevilla last season, is not only a huge Gareth Bale fan, but also a keen admirer of Jose Mourinho – something you can imagine helped in our acquisition of him.
I’m excited to see him in a Spurs shirt for the first time, and with Matt Doherty on the other side, here’s hoping the pair can drastically improve our wing-back situation for the better.
