As a Gooner, I had to laugh at Pochettino's rather embarrassing post match interview last night.
For a manager that has won absolutely nothing during his managerial career his growing arrogance is particularly amusing.
His reliance upon working his players too hard is, in my opinion, one of the main reasons that ihe hasn't won a single trophy as manager, as his players have looked jaded towards the end of seasons and this summer with so many Toot players on international duty and the added burden of a pre-season tour and CL football, the fatigue in his team is obvious. The strength of the Toot was a quality keeper and back four, which has subsequently been disturbed. Lloris has been caught drunk driving and I am suspicious of his current absence. Walker left to win trophies and be paid the going rate. Rose and Alderweirald want out, for the same reasons as Walker. I have a feeling that they may not qualify for the CL this season.

Why are you telling us this. This is the Arsenal page, was this meant for the spurs page?

BG1982 - It was so amusing, if you missed his post-match interview try and watch it. He lost the plot with the media.

It's tough at the top, sometimes getting there is the easy bit but maintaining your status as top premier league team and champions league team to be taken seriously is what separates the boys from the men.
Poch has done a great job until now but like Jose he is struggling with the pressure of expectation and it's starting to show.
Hi pressure business football management and it quite often brings out the bizarre in people.

Ha ha i just have. I actually heard it on the radio and without realising who it was I thought it was mourinho 😂.

He won't last long should Spurs miss out on champions league football and fail to win a cup to soften the blow.
Spurs are enjoying their best period I can ever remember them having unders Poch it's the first time I've ever seen them as anything more than a cup team that has always lived off its past in terms of being a big club, but I bet that won't stop the Spurs fans turning on him after just a single stuttering season.
They've not been unwavering up to now dispite him being the best manager they've had in most people's memories.

Spot on G62, the Toot fans will turn quickly.
This is a difficult season for the Toot as Alderweirald, Rose and Dembele all want out. Dembele's contract expires at the end of the season and Alderwierald can be sold for a low amount for a player of his quality, I believe £25m. The problem with giving players such as Alderwierald and Rose a hard time is that their value has dropped. Other chairmen clearly don't like Levy's methods and simply won't deal with him. The huge debt incurred for the stadium build will hurt financially and hence why the Toot did not buy this summer. They look a fatigued side and with matches come thick and fast it will be interesting to see how they cope. What are the odds that they pull players out of the next international matches in October, with 'injuries'.

Poch obviously stayed and turned good offers down for a reason but he may well already be regretting that decision.
Spurs had lots of players at the world cup probably more than any other premier league team so obviously it's going to be asking a lot of small squad to do more or less do two seasons on the trot with no summer break, physically is a lot but mentally it's even more demanding.
No summer signings means next to no rest bite in a relentless season of premier league champions league and domestic cups that Spurs fans would love the club to win for bragging rights if nothing else.
It's a tough season ahead for Poch and hopefully Dick can make it that much tougher still by doing the nld double plus Arsenal finishing above Spurs again after a short interval.

Spuds are going through a carbon copy of what we went through when we built our new stadium but probably in a worse scenario as far as the stadium is concerned. Our new stadium did us few favours and i don't see how theirs will do either.

If you look on the spurs site, ravers already blaming poch, but I don't think levy would sack him unless he became totally shocking, I think he sold poch a story that the stadium wouldn't change anything and there would still be money to tie him to a new long term contract knowing he's the best they can get on a tight budget and then said there's no one available to improve them.

19 Sep 2018 20:50:40
Before Poch they went through managers like most people go through a pair of work shoes, I think the najority of their fans won't bother too much with reasons they might struggle this season and have the patience to look ahead to next season, they will hit the all change button.

The problem is that fans expect more and a trophy or two would keep them quiet. Failing to finish top four this season will cause problems finanacially with the loss of vital revenue to fund the huge cost of the new stadium.
I believe Pochettino is a decent manger, but needs to win something after a decade in management, Once they eventually move into the new stadium the expectations will grow and continued failure to win a trophy may result in Pochettino moving on. Don't forget he inherited some quality players when he arrived.
