Tottenham’s charismatic boss, Ange Postecoglou, is embracing the optimism surrounding the club’s Premier League title aspirations. In a post-match interview after Tottenham’s triumphant 2-1 win against Crystal Palace, which catapulted them five points ahead at the league’s summit, Postecoglou declared, “Let them dream. It’s what being a football fan is all about. It’s fair to say that this lot have suffered a fair bit so I’m certainly not going to dampen that. Dreams last as long as they do until someone wakes you up. We’ll see.”
The Australian manager is determined to keep the spirit high among the Spurs faithful, urging them to “continue to dream” as their team achieves remarkable success in the early stages of the Premier League campaign.
The match itself witnessed a subdued first half in south London, with Tottenham’s entertainers struggling to find their rhythm. However, shortly after the interval, James Maddison’s cross-shot forced Joel Ward into an own goal, providing the breakthrough the team needed. Heung-min Son then added a second goal to his tally, marking his eighth of the season.
The game wasn’t without late drama, as Jordan Ayew’s super strike in the 94th minute set up a frantic finish. Matheus Franca’s last-minute attempt to level the score went wide, sealing Tottenham’s victory. This win has now cemented Ange Postecoglou’s impressive record of securing 26 points out of a possible 30 from his first 10 games as a Premier League manager. The future looks promising for Tottenham, and Postecoglou is keen to keep the fans’ dreams alive as they chase the elusive Premier League title.
