Will there be a new manager bounce at Spurs and what does it mean for FPL managers?

The last two years as a Tottenham Hotspur fan have been difficult to handle.

Parting ways with Mauricio Pochettino back in December 2019 has seen Spurs have four different managers in the last two years. And with Nuno Espirito Santo sacked after just four months and one day in charge, it will once again signal more changes. Whether these changes are for the better or not remains to be seen, both from a football and a Fantasy Premier League (FPL) perspective.

Spurs now find themselves linked widely with the same managers that were rumoured over the summer prior to Nuno’s appointment. One of them, Antonio Conte, is expected to be announced as new head coach later on Tuesday, but if he is, should we invest in Spurs assets?

As FPL managers, we always look for a new manager bounce as this can make certain assets prime targets for investment. When Jose Mourinho took over at Spurs in November 2019, he won four of his opening five fixtures – registering 14 goals and just one clean sheet. Ryan Mason collected three wins in the first five fixtures when he took over as interim head coach in April 2021, managing 10 goals and two clean sheets. Nuno Espirito Santo, like Mason, recorded a trio of wins in his first five but with just three goals. And although he began with three clean sheets, it was followed by a pair of 3-0 defeats.

Jose Mourinho Ryan MasonNuno Espirito Santo
West Ham 2-3 Spurs (W)Spurs 2-1 Southampton (W)Spurs 1-0 Man City (W)
Spurs 3-2 Bournemouth (W)Spurs 4-0 Sheffield United (W)Wolves 0-1 Spurs (W)
Man United 2-1 Spurs (L)Leeds 3-1 Spurs (L)Spurs 1-0 Watford (W)
Spurs 5-0 Burnley (W)Spurs 2-0 Wolves (W)Crystal Palace 3-0 Spurs (L)
Wolves 1-2 Spurs (W)Aston Villa 2-1 Spurs (L)Spurs 0-3 Chelsea (L)

There could be some potential for a new manager bounce, especially when you look at the forthcoming fixtures.

The North Londoners sit top of our Season Ticker from now until Gameweek 17 and in that time they will play four bottom half sides. Many FPL managers, myself included, were already looking at this run with optimism before the managerial switch, earmarking Gameweek 11 as a point of investment. However, with a series of awful performances where the Lilywhites have failed to look interested, my desire to spend the level of FPL budget needed to own a Spurs player was minimal.

The injury to Romelu Lukaku (£11.5m) ahead of Gameweek 9 meant I had a difficult decision to make. Free up money and downgrade Lukaku to Ivan Toney (£6.6m), play it safe with the in-form player of the time Jamie Vardy (£10.8m), or go early on my original plan to invest in Spurs from Gameweek 11 – even though their performances made me far from keen on this – by getting Harry Kane (£12.1m).

Who are the best FPL captain options for Gameweek 9? 5

I immediately questioned my decision when Kane was the only player to blank across my Gameweek 9 team, but when you make a decision for the long-term, you need to stick by it for at least a couple of Gameweeks. Kane’s performance against Manchester United in Gameweek 10, much like the majority of the team, was awful and therefore I was pondering on freeing up the money in spite of this fantastic fixture run.

However, the decision to part company with Nuno has made me stop in my tracks.

In the first five league matches under Mourinho, Kane brought in three goals and one assist, while under Ryan Mason he was unavailable for the first match and was returning early from injury yet still managed a goal. Whilst these stats aren’t eye-watering and Kane seems a shadow of the player he once was, the combination of fixtures and the right managerial arrival could potentially see FPL returns from Kane in the next few weeks.

Meanwhile Son Heung-Min (£10.2m), who was the preferred pick for many managers ahead of this run of games, also has a good record under new managers. Son registered two goals and three assists in the first five under Mourinho, three goals and one assist in Mason’s first five, then two goals for Nuno’s start.

However, it is the out-of-favour Dele Alli‘s (£6.4m) form under new managers which is somewhat more interesting. He has notched four goals and four assists throughout the first five games of those three managers. If he regains his place in the team under Conte, this is something to keep an eye on.

As a gift to FPL managers, Conte spoke in the summer about how he would use Kane if he was his manager:

“Many praise Harry Kane for his ability to go get the ball and play with the team, such as with the equaliser against Denmark. But it’s in the box where he’s clinical and as a coach, I would always keep him in there because he’s devastating.”

Antonio Conte on Harry Kane

Under Nuno, Spurs have been a shadow of their former selves, sitting 17th across the division for goals scored, 19th for goal attempts and shots in the box, plus 17th for expected goals (xG). As an FPL manager invested in their attack, as well as a Spurs fan, this is something that will need to be rectified quickly. We could see Conte deploy his favourite 3-5-2 formation, with Son playing out-of-position alongside Kane in a move which benefits both of them from an FPL perspective.

Moreover, it could mean that we could finally invest in the Spurs defence, as with Sergio Reguilon (£5.0m) and Emerson Royal (£4.9m) playing as wing-backs, their potential for attacking returns could be very interesting.

I am planning to wait and see what happens, with a close eye on the game at Everton in Gameweek 11. However, for those who aren’t currently invested in Spurs, there is potential to go early.

Tottenham Hotspur v Everton past results, via 11v11

With the run of fixtures that Tottenham have, as well as the potential for us to see Son playing out-of-position, I would be tempted to go early on the South Korean captain. Meanwhile, Saturday evening’s performance highlighted how important Reguilon is both in terms of defence and attack, thus I would be looking at a move for him or Royal on the other flank ahead of the Gameweek 12 deadline.

As a Kane owner, I’ll be holding fire and hoping to see a revival of the player I have loved so much over the last few seasons. It’s time for the big players to stand up, be counted, back the new manager and get their season restarted.

    It'd be so typical if the Spurs player to get actually became Ndombele. Conte's midfielders chip in with lots of goals as well from making late runs into the box.

    1. Cok3y5murf
      • 5 Years
      24 days, 15 hours ago

      Was considering him even last week. Been doing well at CAM and cheap. But then he gets dropped

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      24 days, 15 hours ago

      In the unlikely event he did nail down a slot, He’d be a distant fourth behind Son, Kane & Regulion anyways

      Any returns would be sporadic, unpredictable & pretty much random

      38 career goal involvements (excluding the French second division) in nearly 200 games isn’t exactly going to help him rival the likes of Mbuemo, ESR & Gallagher for a 5.5-6.0 midfield slot

      1. Ginkapo FPL

        Thats what some might have said about Kante

  2. The Knights Template

    Is Maupay french for Murphy?

    1. Echoes
      • 1 Year
      24 days, 15 hours ago

      Or is Murphy the English for Maupay? 😉

    Does 'manager bounce at Spurs' extend to me keeping Dier for a bit longer?

    Not like he's hurting anyone, I suppose - 2nd on the bench there, Billy-no-mates.

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      24 days, 15 hours ago

      If you still have him, probably a hold.

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      24 days, 15 hours ago

      His problem is just that he’s not good at football, if he could figure that piece out he’d have a chance

      1. mynameisq
        • 8 Years
        24 days, 15 hours ago

        Every new manager seems to initially trust him weirdly, maybe he speaks lots of languages

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • 11 Years
          24 days, 15 hours ago

          Yup - He played youth football as a teenager in Portugal which endeared him to Mou, Poch bought him from Portugal so he was Poch’s baby, and speaking portugese helped him with Nuno as well

    3. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      24 days, 15 hours ago

      He seems to always get in with new managers for a while so I'd probably hold

  4. Oooo Matron

    Roll the transfer (2.7 itb) & who to bench?

    Ramsdale
    Trent James Azpi
    Raphina Salah Mbuemo Foden
    Vardy Toney Maupay

    Subs: Livramento, Allan, Cancelo

    1. Water_Pink

      Azi out ?

  5. The Knights Template

    Is the 'Show Replies' tick box broken for everyone else?

    Been like it a while...

  7. Redranger

    Which is the best route to getting Chilwell/James?

    A) Duffy & Toney > Chilwell/James & Hwang -4
    B) Duffy & Havertz > Chilwell/James & Gallagher

    1. Hits dont lie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Prefer B personally, but would you wait a week? Toney and Havertz have decent fixtures

      1. Redranger
        • 6 Years
        24 days, 15 hours ago

        I’m worried about their prices going too far up to be honest, but I guess it’s not too good of an idea to take a hit before an IB.

    2. Akeem
      • 6 Years

      B if pressed

    Looking for a little help here due to silly captain choices
    To me my team seems ok, AM I missing something? (Holding Lukaku)

    Ramsdale
    TAA Dias Liveramento Chillwell
    Salah ESR Foden Sarr
    Toney Antonio

    Steele-Gray-Chalobah-Dennis-

    1. Water_Pink

      Maybe sarr out?

  9. Thiagwho

    Sorry Dennis is Lukaku

  10. Wılly
    • 8 Years
    24 days, 15 hours ago

    Have enough ITB to move Havertz to Son with 1FT available.

    A. Havertz to Son

    B. Save transfer & play

    C. Benrahma to
    i. Mbuemo
    ii. ESR
    iii. Gallagher

    1. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 3 Years
      24 days, 15 hours ago

      Save to have 2 FTs after the international break.

      Havertz is probably a better option for gw11 anyway

      1. OneArseneWenger32
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        24 days, 15 hours ago

        pulisic may be the xfactor instead of kai

  11. Echoes
    • 1 Year
    24 days, 15 hours ago

    Plan since WC8 was to do KDB -> Son in GW12, but due to change in circumstances, really tempted to pull the trigger this week. Do it or hold one more week?

    1. Hktrader88
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      24 days, 12 hours ago

      Son vs Everton looks to be a good fixture. KDB vs ManU doesn't look great... he might not even get 60mins. Although you could wait to see the ManC line up in CL

  12. RAFA THE GAFFA

    Good Ebening!

    I'm eyeing up a spurs double depending on how they look against Everton and what happens in the IB.

    But which moves would you do to facilitate?

    Ramsdale Foster
    TAA James Chilwell Cancelo Livramento
    Salah Son Foden Mbeumo Brownhill
    Vardy Toney Hwang

    A) Vardy Cancelo to Kane Manquillo
    B) Vardy Foden to Kane Gallagher
    C) Something else?

    Both would free up some cash to do Kane to Ronaldo if I wanted to around GW15

    1. Bucket Man
      • 3 Years
      24 days, 15 hours ago

      Would do A of those but keep Vardy this week.

  14. Reeker

    Don't think I can come back from doing James to Trent last week

  16. G B

    At the start of last season Matt Doherty was one of the first names in my team... until he moved to Spurs. The guy loves a goal, and those 6pt goals can be huge as we're seeing with James and Chilwell at the moment.

    If I get even a whiff he's nailed under Conte, he's coming straight in.

    1. OneArseneWenger32
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      24 days, 15 hours ago

      agreed but regulion is also better as a wing back so his and emerson's stock should go up

    The Man U defeat has worked out surprisingly well for Spurs. Conte is a great manager, might actually get somewhere now

    DEfinitely a week to hold a FT. 2FT's for after Spurs match might be useful for switching funds from 1 position to another.

    1. Lanley Staurel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      24 days, 14 hours ago

      Agreed. Thinking of moving on TAA to get Spurs in eg defender and Son

  21. Kloppage Time
    • 6 Years
    24 days, 15 hours ago

    Calling all Havertz owners, are you hanging on to him for another week or getting rid? Thinking to keep him for one more week then downgrade to either Mbeumo or ESR to fund Son.

    1. OneArseneWenger32
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      24 days, 15 hours ago

      have to hold once Kaku is out and pulisic isn't eating into playing time

    2. Atimis
      • 5 Years
      24 days, 15 hours ago

      Keeping and will get rid before GW12

    3. Bucket Man
      • 3 Years
      24 days, 15 hours ago

      I’m probably going to ESR this week but have 2FT and only other one I’m thinking is Ederson to Ramsdale but think removing Havertz now the better option. I already got Son on WC for this run of fixtures he has been disappointing so far!

    4. Bavarian
      • 3 Years
      24 days, 14 hours ago

      Have 2 FT's , but need to sort out Sarr first.

  22. stevehaigh84
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Is it worth taking a 4 point hit to bring James in for Chrisensen? It would mean downgrading Armstrong out for Dennis or Saka to Smith Rowe.

    1. Bucket Man
      • 3 Years
      24 days, 15 hours ago

      Not for me. Could easily be rested and Christensen play

    2. Apwilkin
      • 2 Years
      24 days, 15 hours ago

      Not sure I would take a hit for it. Wait to see what happens with Chelsea match playing time. Both players are high rotation risk.

    3. BrockLanders

    6. Atimis
      • 5 Years
      24 days, 15 hours ago

      Thinking about some future moves, who would you get in place of Havertz after GW11 ?

      I'm considering Gallagher, Foden, or could even look at Cornet and Trossard.

      Thoughts?

      1. Bucket Man
        • 3 Years
        24 days, 15 hours ago

        Son of haven’t got him. Like the look of Cornet and good fixtures, Mbuemo,ESR, Gallagher. Foden if you have bench cover is good

        1. Atimis
          • 5 Years
          24 days, 15 hours ago

          Have Son already, some cheapies are nice as could also get like Jim for his fixtures GW 13-14

          1. Bucket Man
            • 3 Years
            24 days, 14 hours ago

            Lots of great cheap midfielders. Struggling for forwards at the minute though.

    7. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      24 days, 15 hours ago

      Anyone have Spurs double up solutions?

      I could roll FT and then do TAA + Raphinha > Son + 3.9m defender. Seems mad but it's there.

      1. have you seen cyan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        24 days, 15 hours ago

        People probably jumping on Spurs too early, I don’t see Conte suddenly transforming them.
        I am considering Son or Kane, not both though and not yet

      2. Atimis
        • 5 Years
        24 days, 15 hours ago

        Won’t be getting Kane and have Son already, considering their wingbacks since GW13

      3. Holmes
        • 8 Years
        24 days, 15 hours ago

        Yep, Raphinha-Ings-Martinez to Brownhill-Carson-Kane

      4. Hy liverpool

      Anyone thinking of Lukaku? I know alot of negatives poke about him, and lets be honest justified
      But with James and Chilley firing, i cant look past him now, crosses into box he could be great

      1. Wheato182
        • 9 Years
        24 days, 15 hours ago

        Lukaku will come good again, he's just frustrating to own, seems very streaky.

        1. Red Red Robins
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          24 days, 15 hours ago

          Yeah true, just do quite like him, especially over Vardy

      2. Holmes
        • 8 Years
        24 days, 15 hours ago

        His best fixtures are unfortunately gone, so going to wait for now.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

        I will probably hold Antonio as I have so much value tied up in him... And from GW 16 and onwards he is a clear season keeper.

      GW10 Mini-League Leaders:

      This is a report on the leaders of various Fantasy Football Scout FPL mini-leagues and community competitions after Gameweek 10, together with news of the latest update to the FFS Live Hall of Fame.

      ** FFSCOUT OPEN FPL LEAGUE

      Srecko Kurtovic leads for a second week in the Fantasy Football Scout mini-league ( https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/68048/standings/c, league code gsnskx) and has risen to second in the world.

      ** FFSCOUT COMMUNITY MEMBERS LEAGUE

      Daniel Masson-Abraham leads for a fourth week in the Fantasy Football Scout Members mini-league (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/361/standings/c), which is also open to all. The league code is visible in the widget on the FFS Home Page when signed in, but only those with a registered FFS account (paid or free) will be eligible for prizes.

      Daniel is world number one for a second week, so we now hold the top two positions. Neither has played any chips yet apart from their wildcards.

      ** LAST MAN STANDING

      See http://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/2021/07/24/the-last-man-standing-competition-2021-2022/ for details of TorresMagic’s Last Man Standing competition (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/26234/standings/c, league code 6dcode).

      The highest scorer in Gameweek 10 was Marcin Cichacki with 89 points.

      The safety score was 37, with 161 teams to be removed and 1,828 going through to Gameweek 11. It will remain open till Gameweek 22, but new entrants must pass all the previous safety scores (Home - torresmagiclms.simplesite.com) to qualify.

      ** HEAD-TO-HEAD LEAGUES

      Martin Stubbs still leads League 1 in MIR’s FFS Head-to-Head Leagues (www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/head-to-head-leagues/) with 24 points. He is 925th in the recently updated FFS Live Hall of Fame.

      Curtis Ledger and Ikhwan Aryandi in League 6 both have a maximum 30 points after ten straight wins, and so do four managers in League 7, nine in League 8 and nine in League 9.

      ** TOPS AND VETS

      Tabz Hashimi is the new leader in my Top 10k Any Season mini-league (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/1378/standings/c, league code kgmryk), displacing long-time leader Dirty Dave, and has shot up to fifth overall after scoring 71 with 21 points from Reece James and 6 from auto-sub LIvramento. Tabz has been playing since at least 2006/07 and has had two top 10k finishes..

      Carl Evans is the new leader in my Multiple Top 10k Finishes mini-league (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/1386/standings/c, league code 03t1fd), which is for teams with two or more top 10,000 finishes, and has risen to 2,506th overall. He has had two top 10k finishes, his team is called For Evs Sake and he is in a mini-league called Az is better than Dad!!!!!, so I suspect that his dad may be FFS legend Evs who came very close to winning FPL a few years back.

      Tommi Aittokallio is the new leader in PDM’s Top 1k ANY season mini-league (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/10031/standings/c, league code 01ef8y) and has risen to 575th overall. He finished 524th in 2016/17 and has also had one other top 10k finish.

      Julian Hancock leads for a fifth week in Jed Alexander (LIvinginapool)’s Top 100 Any Season mini-league (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/194472/standings/c, league code pztxjt) and is now 8,446th overall.

      2018/19 FPL champion Adam Levy leads for a third week in Simon March’s FPL Champions League (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/2594/standings/c) and is now 6,588th overall.

      Jonny Armstrong is the new leader in Chaballer’s Hall of Fame Top 1k mini-league (https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/39527/standings/c, league code 1zpaad) and has risen to 4,649th overall. He is 483rd in the FFS Live Hall of Fame.

      Richard Irving leads for a second week in Skooldaze’s FPL Vets 2006 or before mini-league (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/25315/standings/c, league code hz9bz2) and has risen to 8,446th overall.

      ** MODS, CONS AND FAMILY

      Chaz Phillips (Az) is the new leader in the FFS Mods & Cons mini-league (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/366/standings/c). He finished 817th in 2017/18, has had two other top 4k finishes and is 583rd in the FFS Live Hall of Fame.

      And last but not least, Obay Eid (FPL_Milanista) leads for a tenth week in the FFS Family mini-league (fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/342/standings/c). He is now 108th overall, and 76th in the FFS Live Hall of Fame.

      ** FFS LIVE HALL OF FAME

      The FFS Live Hall of Fame (which, unlike the FFS Career Hall of Fame, can only be viewed by Premium Members) was updated again after Gameweek 9, and 62,701 managers participating in the Fantasy Football Scout and Fantasy Football Scout Members mini-leagues are now ranked in it. The new top ten, with FFS Career Hall of Fame positions in brackets, is:
      1(2) Tom Stephenson
      2(3) Finn Sollie.
      3(1) Pro Pundit Fábio Borges.
      4(4) Morten Tveito.
      5(7) Jon Ballantyne.
      6(8) Garry Murray (Sharky’s Machine).
      7(10) Mark Hurst.
      8(27) Matt Corbidge.
      9(19) Mato Stanic.
      10(15) Scott McIrvine.
      Fábio was the only one outside this season’s overall top 100k after Gameweek 9 and has dropped from 1st to 3rd. Does this season’s current position perhaps carry a bit too much weight?
      Matt (who has had five top 10k finishes in the last six seasons) and Finn (who has had nine top 10k finishes and came 39th last year) were the only ones in this season’s overall top 10k after Gameweek 9.
