Despite coming into Thursday night’s second-leg 2-0 following a home win last week, Jose Mourinho was left shell-shocked after a truly superb hat-trick from striker Mislav Orsic sent the Londoners crashing out.

The manner in which Spurs lost was not only a visual representation of the turmoil the club are currently in, it also piles the pressure on Mourinho, who is now the bookies’ odds-on-favourite to be sacked next.

Following the Premier League side’s shock exit from the illustrious European competition, fans have been quick to slam their team’s performance.

Not only have fans reacted with understandable discontent, but they’ve also been quick to highlight Sissoko’s dire performance, with some even calling for him to sold.

Looking ahead to their next tie, Spurs are set to face Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday evening.

Should they suffer their third defeat in a row, Mourinho’s side will remain in eighth place in the league table and six places off the top-four.

  1. I used to defend Sissoko when he first joined the club, and he eventually turned things around. But now his performances have become inconsistent and flawed and I think its time to move him on. But in all honesty there is a huge rebuild also required to set Tottenham back on track. On top of Sissoko, Winks, Dier, Sanchez, and Doherty are all simply not good enough to set a standard to match Tottenham’s ambition to progress and need to be sold this summer. Alderweireld is a brilliant Central Defender is unfortunately at the wrong end of his career now and Spurs should be thinking about a younger and fitter replacement, and perhaps a similar argument could be levied at both Lloris and Lamela to a lesser extent. I do not believe selling Dele benefits Tottenham, but wonder if irreparable damage has already been caused by Mourinho’s poor handling of a quality player. Bale on the other hand has proved something of a costly novelty that hasn’t worked out at the second time of asking, and perhaps justifies Real Madrids determination to see him off their books. Equally Bergwyn is a massive disappointment given his potential and pace but looks woefully off form of late. Whilst Kane and Son are among Spurs most valuable assets given how things presently stand you could forgive both for now genuinely wishing loftier aspirations and potentially bigger clubs, and both have certainly given more to Tottenham as a team than the club arguably deserve against there lack of winning rewards.
    What this leaves is a rather diminished nucleus of players like Hojbjerg, Ndombele and Moura and perhaps Lo Celsco ( though of the latter I am still a bit uncertain overall, he’s certainly no Eriksen). Others will also be asking whether the likes of Aurier and Davies should also be sold, the former has the talent but arguably not the temperament, and whilst the Welsh left back is hardworking and dogged in his approach, many seem to feel he lacks genuine quality to make difference at the very top level. His counterpart in Reguillion certainly does but given the terms of his deal from Real Madrid it is clear that his time at Spurs may well be short lived. I could go on about players like Vinicuis but this as a long term deal is looking unlikely despite his relative success to games played, asa player he has potential but with such little premiership experience overall it is still a huge risk at almost £40M to cut a permanent deal. But what all of this does spell out is the enormity of a project to get the club back challenging for real, a task they currently look incapable of doing. Whilst I hold know acrimony to Jose Mourinho it is increasingly clear that his methods are not working or actually improving Tottenham as a team. In fact they are perceived by many to be struggling and questionably in decline, and the calls for Mourhino grow increasingly louder as Tottenham splutter and stumble through the season, personally I think he will be gone by summer and greater mishaps lay ahead before may. I cannot truthfully see Spurs beating a formidable tidal wave in Man City who just seem to get better and better and any hopes of a top six let alone top four seem increasingly unlikely considering how Spurs set out to play these days. With the way things stand I wonder how much more disasterous the season can actually become as the possibility of now even being eclipsed by close rivals Arsenal seems increasingly more plausible as events unfold. I hate to say it but Tottenham are in deep crisis now and radical reform and deep change is necessary
