Tottenham Hotspur is playing attacking football again after playing a defensive and negative brand of football for years.
Under Mauricio Pochettino, Tottenham accomplished that, and they were rewarded with consecutive Champions League appearances.
One thing is certain: Ange Postecoglou is giving it his all. It remains to be seen if he can replicate what the Argentine accomplished at Spurs.
Ange Postecoglou may be “the most attack-minded manager in the world,” according to former England striker Michael Owen, who expressed this opinion to Premier League Productions on March 12, 23 at 6:45 p.m.
However, he also believes that three players—Guglielmo Vicario, the goalkeeper, and Ben Davies, the stand-in center backs—do not like playing in Ange Postecoglou’s style due to its openness.
Spurs were concerned that they wouldn’t be able to field a strong lineup against stand-in players after Micky van de Ven suffered an injury and Cristian Romero received a suspension.
That isn’t the case, though, as Spurs demonstrated in their 3-3 draw with Manchester City on Sunday. Michael Owen had the following to say after the game.
The Tottenham playmaking style of Ange Postecoglou
Owen remarked of Mourinho and Conte, among others, “They were so negative.” “They were supervisors on defense.
“After completing that, you suddenly have the most offensive and attack-minded manager in the entire football world.” The players have a very different perspective on the game.
The players who are attacking must be having fun with this. However, I’m not sure if I would be enjoying it if I were the center-halves or the goalkeeper, or something similar.
Spurs vs. Manchester City in the Premier League
Ange Postecoglou is dispelling the doubters.
Many predicted that Tottenham’s trip to the Etihad would result in a potential thrashing in addition to their fourth straight Premier League loss.
However, they silenced many of their detractors by playing according to their own principles in spite of injuries and winning a point against the English Champions.
It probably gives the Spurs team and supporters more faith that they can become a serious team when their main players—James Maddison and Micky van de Ven—return.
Regaining a spot in the top six would have likely been the goal at the beginning of the season.
However, after missing out on all of Europe in the previous season, there is now a real chance of securing Champions League football.
