The Australian has made a flying start to life at Tottenham, winning three out of four games
Only City can analogue Tottenhams index of 11 goals scored so far this campaign, while theyve only leaked four at the further end.
Former winner and co-host of Mail Sports podcast , Chris Sutton, has crave been a believer of Postecoglous afafir after watching him modify Celtic, and before a ring was kicked this season.
I imagine the media in average havent [disrespected Postecoglou] but was there not a "No to Postecoglou" campaign from Spurs fans?, vocal Sutton.
I envisage there was a alike article at Celtic when Ange Postecoglou came over to Celtic because I think a large quota of it was because he is Australian and kinsfolk view Australia as not a footballing country, with the greatest respect, and connections didnt really ulcer subservient the surface.
If you look at every bastinado hes been, hes had 25 successful years in coaching and he turns clubs around. He did well with Brisbane in Australia, he went to Yokohama who were struggling in the in the J-League, rancid them around into J-League champions. He came to Celtic, took over one hell of a mess and bad them around - winning five out of six trophies, two group titles, he added.
But it wasnt legal that, it was about elegance of play, brand of football and then going to Tottenham, that was the biggest item for me. He would tick that box majorly.
Its interesting. Pundits who I respect, Gary Neville, Roy Keane, Glenn Hoddle, own all been slightly vital of him in the means that Tottenham play, spoken Sutton.
Co-host Ian Ladyman then questioned whether tart views from old professionals on the Tottenham stud can be classed as snobbery.
Sutton added: I dont comprehend whether its snobbery. They [have] celebrated football brains, they own their opinions.
What I do project is that they dont assume or havent looked into Postecoglou extremely enough in his coaching vocation and the brand of football which he plays, Ive oral to him many times, construe a heap of equipment about him.

He wants to drama this attacking brand of football and its worked for him for a 25-year period. So hes come to Tottenham and hes saying, "why am I going to change? Its been successful for me". And I actually concept that Tottenham would be a nibble additional of a unpunctual burner, if Im honest. Maybe around October, November they really hit the straps.
I suppose that in a lot of respects, we may be getting a hardly nibble overexcited because Im calm pretty sure they bequeath have some arduous weeks and they cede concede some goals playing the means that theyre playing and obtaining counter-attacked. Then well get "Postecoglous childlike with the way he plays".
But with a guy who has his passageway brochure in management, conceivably not in as fashionable a union as a mountain of English fans would want, I project hes going to accomplish moral things. Remember, when Arsene Wenger came to these shores and everybody wrote him off. What happened next?
