When Harry Kane left Spurs this summer it felt like the end of an era for the club and the fans.
Kane had been the star man at Spurs for the last decade and he’d shown constant improvement over that time. England have a reputation for having extra joy for their best young talents but Kane did evolve into one of the top goalscorers in the world, and there were times where it seemed like he would always play for Spurs.
But the big move happened this summer and he left for Bayern, leaving a hole at Spurs that some thought would be very difficult to fill and lead to phase of rebuilding.
But so far this season Spurs have been delivering the goods and the latest win was an incredible late comeback against Sheffield United. Spurs looked to be heading for a first league loss under new manager Ange Postecoglou after Sheffield took a shock lead in the 73rd minute, but with 12 minutes of stoppage time, Richarlison grabbed an equaliser in the 98th minute before Dejan Kulusevski got the winner two minutes later.
It was amazing scenes, the latest comeback in Premier League history and shows the character of the Spurs side who are keeping pace with the pack that are chasing down league leaders Man City.
Spurs have had a few managers that only care about the winning, regardless of the style, but Ange is concerned with winning in style and loves to get goals. When he was at Celtic last season he said: “Sometimes you can win and not really enjoy a game, but never do you not enjoy a goal. Even the most scrambling, ugliest of goals still gets celebrated. I love the joy goals bring.”
This shows his philosophy is not just about winning, but entertaining fans and so far this season Spurs have been one of the most entertaining to watch. We can imagine what it would be like in the dressing room having a coach that says whatever comes to mind when he needs to address something he’s not happy with.
They’re definitely one to watch this season and it’s going to be interesting to see how long they can keep the pace with the top clubs. #mmlove
