Admit it, none of us saw that coming. To end the season on the back of a 5-1 hammering to a 10-man, relegated Newcastle United side definitely left a sour taste in the mouths of us Tottenham fans.
To cap it all off, the result meant we have to endure yet another season of finishing below the scum who have taken to Twitter in their droves to celebrate their second place finish.
The result will certainly give Pochettino, Levy, Mitchell and co food for thought of exactly what needs to be done during the summer to ensure that we are not embarrassed like this again and are able to compete in the Champions League effectively.
We’ve been terrible in recent weeks, you can blame the player’s mentality but you have to look at some of the players we have. Mason and Carroll notably are just not up to the mark for a side which is trying to establish ourselves as consistent title contenders.
Pochettino said: “I think today we showed that this wasn’t a team that had played well through the whole season, and I think this was my worst day as a manager in England or Spain.
“I feel very bad, because the worst thing is we showed we don’t care about the position.
“We have shown in the last few weeks that what we need to improve for next season is our mental state. We can see the problem was that we are not ready to compete and we don’t have enough quality to play with the ball.
“The big problem is that we have to try to identify and take decisions for the future. I was very disappointed and upset because the first 45 minutes of the match was a shame.”
Such was the extent of Pochettino’s plight he revealed he had been extended sympathy by Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez, despite the final whistle bringing an end to the hosts’ top-flight tenure.
Pochettino admitted: “It was strange – Newcastle are relegated but he felt sorry for me.”
