Tottenham have long been laughed at by rival fans for not having won a trophy though coming close in recent years but ultimately falling short each time. Mauricio Pochettino rebuilt the club making them a Champions League contender, a top-four finisher five years in a row, and even a title threat a few times. But not even "Poch" could bring a trophy to North London. Drastic changes were needed so Daniel Levy brought in someone known for winning trophies, The Special One, Jose Mourinho.
After one season and failing to win a trophy, Jose decided he actually hated being on a budget and hating Tottenham all together. Jose left North London after finishing 4th in the Premier League but without a trophy.
In comes Boog Fisher. A nobody in the Premier League but he has won the Bundesliga with Stuttgart in years past. Boog is used to being on a budget and is prepared for the shrewdness of Daniel Levy's business tactics.
Why are Spurs in the Champions League at the start of this career, you ask? Well, I simulated the 2019/2020 season just for fun and Tottenham ended up in 4th, even though I was hoping they would be in Europa. So... that's not realistic but we will get past that.
This career will be similar to my Stuttgart career in FIFA 2019, I copied most of the graphics since I'm not creative enough to come up with anything new. The career mode rules will be pretty standard; following the squad rules per Premier League guidelines as best as I can. Following Tottenham transfer rules which means no big transfers (anything under 30m should be fine as long as kept to 1 or 2 moves a window). I play on Legendary with OS sliders, to start half will be 10 minutes but might move down to 8.
The second move brought in a center back to add depth to the squad. Kim Min Jae, an international teammate of H.M. Son was brought in for £9,800,000 from Beijing Sinobo. The 6'3 defender is physically gifted but has not been tested in a top league yet. With Davison Sanchez, Eric Dier, and Toby Alderweireld already at the club, Jae will have time to learn and develop his skills.
The last move was another swap plus cash, deals Daniel Levy enjoys. Tottenham sent American Cameron Carter-Vickers to Wigan plus £5,998,000 in cash for fellow American, Antonee Robinson. Robinson is a pacey left-back who provides the attacking skills Ben Davies has been lacking. The two defenders will start with even rotations on the year until someone steps up to take the position.
The moves have emptied the budget Levy gave Boog to start the summer. From here on, Boog will only be dealing with money earned by selling current players.

GLC being out for so long is rough. Maybe time for Alli or another similar player to step up.
Good chance for Gedson to have some playing time with GLC out. Dele is playing very well but he is the only attacking midfielder doing anything right now.
3 games in and I'm about ready to give up on Ndombele. His stamina is drained at 60 minutes nearly every match.
I am going to try that. In the season I simulated, I kept having to stop and manually adjust the lineups every few games because if he did not start he would complain about playing time. If he keeps that up to start the year, he will be shown the door in January!
How on earth is Lovren still at Liverpool ffs.

League Table and stats for August
Got a nice Champion's League group as well, very possible to qualify in either 1st or 2nd.
Liverpool felt like I was playing 15 men. Their press made it impossible to move the ball and long balls were cleared by Alison. Felt very realistic which was nice but also frustrating how good they were. The first goal I pressed pass instead of clear by mistake so I gave it right to them in the box for an easy goal. Typical Tottenham defending.
I like the Champions League group. If I come out against OM with more points head to head I think we will advance in at least 2nd behind Real Madrid.

Real Madrid v Spurs
With Madrid dropping points in their other game, it is all in my hands now.
Where was VAR for the Arsenal game shocking call to deny you a good result away from home. Corruption rearing its ugly head in the Prem, you hate to see it.
What a result vs Real. It probably shouldn't have been that close if it wasn't for another Lloris error, which I'm sure is absolutely no one's fault but his own Should give you plenty of confidence for the City game.
I was shocked by the Sessegnon goal, to be honest. A desperate long ball that landed perfectly for him and luckily he was fresh running against a tired defender. Lloris seems to be beaten at his near post often, not a great sign for him and might be moving on to someone new at the end of the year.
The error against Madrid...no idea what happened! I wanted to throw overhand to someone on the side but instead, Lloris went underhand right to Benzema. We will chalk that up to a Lloris error....
Spurs v Man City
As many shots and good chances we create each game, we really should be scoring more but I'm terrible at finishing. The match I am about to upload is hopefully the start of better things to come!
