Some Tottenham Hotspur fans react to Ryan Mason achieving two Spurs feats last achieved by Harry Redknapp
Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting on social media, after Ryan Mason became the first Spurs boss since Harry Redknapp to win each of their first three home league matches by beating Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 on Sunday.
Mason has now overseen victories over Southampton, Sheffield United and Wolves in north London, since being appointed as the caretaker head coach (Sky Sports) following Daniel Levy’s decision to fire Jose Mourinho ahead of the Carabao Cup final.
It took Mourinho until his fourth Premier League fixture in charge at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to achieve three home wins, while his predecessor Mauricio Pochettino needed seven games after defeats to Liverpool, West Brom, Newcastle and Stoke.
Mason is the first Tottenham head coach to win their first three home league matches since Redknapp in November 2008 (BBC), while Andre Villas-Boas took seven games and Tim Sherwood needed six including his interim spell as the Portuguese’s successor.
Redknapp was hired by Spurs in October 2008 and opened his home tenure with wins over Bolton, Liverpool and Blackburn, before enjoying a four-year stay in north London that featured guiding the club into their first Champions League appearance (Standard) in 2010.
Tottenham beating Wolves on Sunday also saw Mason achieve the feat of becoming the first Spurs boss to beat the Molineux natives at home since Redknapp in September 2010, with one draw and two defeats following.
Here’s how these Tottenham fans reacted to Mason achieving two feats no other Spurs head coach has achieved in more than a decade by beating Wolves…
What a manager. https://t.co/DWuvwvf0xP

It would be a different ball game if Wolves was full strength without any injuries

Lost the one that mattered though and the Leeds performance was horrendous.
Way out of his depth but trying hard to be fair.

He's done really well and a future England Manager given the right career path. 👏

Great win and happy for Mason. Yes, needs more time and experience — especially with a meddling Levy. I do feel we had some rub of the green today and that Mason dodged a bullet with his Dier over Rodon decision. Again, will take the 3 points v. complaining!

Mason’s done no more than any average Spurs fan could have done. Stuck with a regular reliable players with nothing exciting on offer. I would like to know why Rodon is completely out of favour while Dier is still picked.
