Do Tottenham Have A Negative Split Strategy

Nevertheless, I wondered whether there was an element of split-half strategy going on.

The basic concept of a “negative split strategy” is that you start out at a pace that is not quite your maximum (85-90%) for the first part of the course and then you go all out at 110% for the second part of the course.

As a keen cycling fan, I’ve noticed a pattern in Tottenham’s recent Premier League matches more akin to a strategy used by some professional cyclists in time-trials.

However, we have seen Tottenham start with a more conservative, defensive strategy in the first half of matches and then playing with a bit more flair, verve and drive in the second half of matches.

If this is a deliberate plan by our “super-coach”, I guess it’s resulting in too many goals conceded in the first half and not enough scored in the second half at the minute.

Nor is he telling players to only put 85% effort in to conserve energy for the second half.

This got me wondering whether this is something that Mourinho is deliberately working on.
