Trouble and turmoil at the top

The first thing to reflect upon is the fact that after a tenure of only 17 months, Jose Mourinho was sacked. Jose was in charge for three of our five games this month, none of which were won. Draws at Newcastle and Goodison Park either side of a home defeat against Manchester United saw our chances of a top four placing diminish. Club chairman Daniel Levy apparently decided on his way back from Everton that he had seen enough, but waited till the Monday morning to act. That gave interim coach Ryan Mason, aged 29, just two days in which to prepare for a home game against Southampton and less than a week to get ready for the Carabao Cup Final against the formidable Manchester City.

It is of course too early, and to be frank, hardly relevant to judge Ryan, who is Spurs through and through and was suppported by the club when he had to retire through a serious head injury sustained as a Hull player. Ryan helped out with coaching in the youth set-up, took his badges and qualified and has been an integral part of the Academy for more than two seasons now. Daniel Levy has commenced his search for a new manager/coach. Most fans hoped that Leipzig's Nagelsmann would be the man to take us forward, but as he will take over at Bayern Munich, we have to look elsewhere. Perhaps Ajax's Erik Ten Hag will be the man.

Ryan did lead the side to an important win against "The Saints" and this was our only win of the month. Last month we crashed out of the Europa League under Mourinho. This month we lost another League Cup Final with a poor performance, but creditable 1-0 result. Failing to win trophies and losing crucial matches is becoming a nasty habit, leading to despondency among most Spurs fans. With five games to come in May, we cling onto the hope of at least winning a place in Europe. Fifth or sixth place should see us in the Europa League, but even that position will be hard to achieve for this group of players in their current collective form.

The core of Spurs team can be indentified by the fact that ever-presents this month were Lloris, Reguilon and Hojbjerg, whilst Son and Lucas Moura started four games and came off the bench in the other match. Harry Kane was injured late in the Everton game, but only missed Southampton. Tanguy Ndombele also played in four of our games, but was dropped for the Carabao Cup Final.

Hugo Lloris was the only member of the squad whose grades imporoved this month. Our goals were scored by Harry Kane (4), Son (2) and Gareth Bale (a classy goal against Southampton). Kane now has 31 club goals, 21 of which have been in the Premier league. That means Harry has now scored 20 league goals in five of his 7 full seasons with Spurs. Harry was named as the Premier League player of the year at the London Football Awards, and is our player of the month for the fourth time this season. Needless to say, Harry leads our accumulating player rankings as well.

After being named as London's Premier League player of the Year, Harry was interviewed and said:-

"Individual awards are great, they are fantastic achievements. When I look back at the end of my career, these are the things I will go over and take in more but the goal right now as a player is to win team trophies. I want to be winning the biggest prizes there is to offer and we are not quite doing that.

"It is bittersweet, I would rather be winning team trophies and this one but it is what it is. I am proud to win it, it means it's been a good season on the pitch. So I have got to try and continue what I am doing."

Once again Spurs fans have to wonder if one of their top players will go elsewhere to win a trophy or two.

The other major event to report is of course the failed attempt to be a part of a chosen clique of 12 clubs to form a European Super League. Fans of all English clubs ("The Big Six") which did include Spurs are calling for their owners/boards to resign. There is a fracture here which will perhaps never be healed.
