Ange Postecoglou has defied critics and exceeded expectations as Tottenham manager, leading the team to a 10-match unbeaten run and playing an exciting brand of attacking football. Despite facing injuries and suspension, Postecoglou has only lost once in the last seven matches. Currently sitting in fifth place in the Premier League, Tottenham's performance under Postecoglou would have comfortably placed them in the top four in previous seasons. The departure of talismanic captain Harry Kane may have proven to be a blessing in disguise, as it provided funds for Postecoglou to make key signings in the transfer market.
The big question was simple: How far could he - and his bold tactical approach - take the team in his maiden campaign in the world's top league?
Postecoglou has proven his ability to adapt to challenges and lay the foundations for long-term success at Spurs. Despite initial surprise and dismay at his appointment, he has defied critics and showcased his tactical acumen. The team's impressive performances under Postecoglou have positioned them in a promising position in the Premier League, with the potential for further success. This demonstrates his ability to not be limited by external expectations and make the most out of the resources at his disposal.
It's fair to say that they've confounded the critics so far. That's especially true considering the club's talismanic captain Harry Kane, who had scored at least 20 goals in each of his last nine seasons, was sold before the season kicked off.
