Stat encapsulated Ange Postecoglou’s entertaining tactics at Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham Hotspur have been one of the most entertaining teams in the Premier League this season and that is mainly down to manager Ange Postecoglou‘s ‘attack at all means’ tactics. One stat that was revealed by Squawka perfectly encapsulates this situation.
According to the incredible stat, “Tottenham are the only side to both win 15+ points from losing positions and lose 15+ points from winning positions in the Premier League this season”. Clearly, Spurs don’t know how to play boring football.
Tottenham have scored in every single game in the Premier League so far this season. They have already crossed 50 goals for the season. Win or lose, Spurs games have promised a lot of goals and last night’s win against Brighton was no different.

Spurs conceded a goal early on in the game but showed resilience to come back and find the winner late on. This has been the story of their season. They either concede early and score later on or score early and concede later on.
As entertaining as the stat sounds, it’s not sustainable when we are challenging for trophies. Playing attacking football is exciting but we cannot drop points after dominating games as much as we have this season.
Departure from the painstaking football under Mourinho and Conte
There is a reason Ange Postecoglou has endeared himself to the Spurs faithful to such effect. The Australian tactician has been a breath of fresh hair for a group of supporters who have struggled to watch the team under Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte in recent seasons.
Ange Ball is so much fun
From the mundane defensive counter-attacking football, Postecoglou has managed to transform the squad and make them one of the most watchable teams in the league. The signings that the club have made have come good big time and the performances are there for everyone to see.
Now, what Postecoglou needs to achieve is consistency to go along with the brand of football. They need results that would help them sustain themselves as a top-four club. With time, it will definitely happen.
