“It’s the whole f***ing team.”
The latest three episodes of All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur were released on Monday, giving Spurs fans a chance to relive the horror of last season in even greater detail, and rival fans the chance to revel in a bit of the misery going on behind the scenes.
Danny Rose’s confrontation with Jose Mourinho over his lack of game time had captured the attention of viewers last time around, and this time it is a dressing room argument between best friends Dele Alli and Eric Dier that has got people talking.
The argument takes place in the immediate aftermath of a disappointing 3-2 loss to Wolves back in March. Spurs had gone into half-time 2-1 up and spirits were high, with captain on the day Harry Winks telling his teammates they had been “brilliant” in the first half.
Dele was not so convinced though, as he appeared to respond to Winks by saying “we can do better, though, come on.”
After a tactical briefing from Mourinho, the players went back out for the second half, conceded two goals, and came back into the dressing room fuming.
Dele was the most audibly frustrated, complaining of the same problems arising in every match. The midfielder described Wolves’ goals as “three of the worst goals [he’s] ever seen in his life.”
Dier, though, quickly became tired of his moaning, and question why he kept repeating the same complaints without naming any of the people at fault.
Dele replied, “it’s the whole team.”
The argument goes on like this for a while, with no conclusion, before Mourinho takes control of the dressing room to explain to the team once again that they’re too nice and need to make more cynical fouls.
