Detailed focus on Specific topics:



  1. Leipzig was better because they have better, fitter players. Atletico Madrid defeated Liverpool with a very old fashioned system. No one ever gets beaten by a system, you get beaten by players.

  2. Ngl, Leeds would defo brush this Spurs side given it's situation and I think you should do a video on Bielsa and his style of play because it's unnoticed

  3. I just think that Mourinho's man management will cost him in the long run because it's been exposed too many times at Real, Chelsea and Utd. If he had a fully fit squad then the tie would've been different

  4. Imagine basing this analysis on 'age'. Spurs are missing 4-5 key players. Starting LB, starting CDM/CM, starting ST, starting LW, starting RW, and a rotating core CB.

    Leipzig manager has won fuck all.

  5. Spurs should have parked the bus to keep clean sheet and depend upon setpieces and counter attacks to score 2 goals
    Why Mourinho isn't parking the bus?

  6. RB Leipzig decided to play more possession than usual. Spurs could be considered a high-possessive team but Leipzig totally outplayed them! Nagelsmann's genius tactics were what won them (Leipzig) the game. If they keep this up, they would cause even more problems for whatever opposition they would face against in the quarter-finals.

  7. Nah, swap the managers and the result would be the same – overwhelming victory for Leipzig – Mo set up well within his limitations and couldn't figure in two goalkeeper errors – (+1 v Burnley) – the squad has been poor for mor ethan a year and miracles don't repeat.

  8. Champions League will be cancelled. There will be no more football till Sep I believe. COVID-19 is spreading further and the pandemic is getting worse and worse. There is no way football resumes on April. It's just not gonna happen.

  9. Absolute bullshit of a title. Spurs are missing half their starters and the ones playing are tired. Embarrassingly biased.

  10. This tactical analysis is pointless. Leipzig players were simply stronger, quicker and technically better than Spurs players. Whichever tactics Spurs played, if you don't have the players to take advantage, you might as well pack up and go.

  11. Mourinho had to adapt his tactics because of the injuries. Maybe with the presence of Kane and Son, Tottenham would have played with a different tactic.
    For instance, Lo Celso need not push higher up and can act as a pivot. The pace will be provided by Son and Moura, on both the wings for the long balls and Kane would hold up the ball in front. Alli won't need to drop back and instead can play between the lines where he is comfortable. Excellent Analysis!

  12. Mourinho is gonna sink their club a lot more next season. People complaining about spurs not having kane and son should remember that leipzig played without their 3 starting cb’s in the first leg and still kept a clean sheet, while spurs conceded 5 over both legs despite mourinho being negative.

  13. Very informative analysis, thanks! Leipzig had very good combinational play and past through Spurs' pressing easily. I believe Spurs wasn't quite comfortable in pressing high and that left them exposed at the back at times. It seemed like Spurs' Lb wasn't very comfortable in going forward to provide width which made it hard for them to penetrate.

  14. No, Mourinho doesn't need Kane, Son, Moura and Eriksen to organise his team defensively. Leipzig are an intense side. They move together. Tottenham are just way too loose, with too much space between their defensive and midfield lines. They don't press as a whole. They don't even try to build up some passes to "rest" a little bit. Players are scared of falling. I hope I'm wrong, but I think Mourinho is becoming somewhat irrelevant in today's football

  15. Sacking Poch was a mistake, he manage to make it to ucl final last year and also beating real madrid. While Mou couldn't even beat Leipzig…

  16. Mourinho is done. If Levy is as smart as many spurs fan want you to believe, he'll sack him and reset his club with a new upcoming manager next summer.
