Dear the Poch Out brigade,
Tottenham Hotspur made it back-to-back defeats in the Premier League last night as they lost 2-0 to bitter London rivals Chelsea.
Not only did this end any hope of a title challenge, but it has also called into question whether Spurs will even finish in the top four.
This in turn has prompted a good few comments on our recent articles with some fans claiming that Pochettino should be fired for not knowing how to win trophies.
There have also been cries to have Daniel Levy removed as chairman due to his unwillingness to spend money.
In my opinion, both of these ideas are utterly ridiculous. Pochettino has been at the club for five years now, and has taken Tottenham to the next level in their progression. He has transformed the team from a squad of the edge of top four finishes, to one that is consistently in the Champions League.
What this has led to is greed among fans. It’s as if some people want to see the same lightening fast rise as Manchester City had, despite the fact Tottenham are doing it with no money, compared to the bottomless pit of City’s bank account.
Building anything from the ground up takes time, and you are bound to suffer set backs. For too long Spurs rattled through new managers without a care in the world, and now the club has found a diamond, some fans want him gone because he isn’t delivering instant success.
I’m afraid that isn’t how it works. Pochettino should be given all the time he is willing to give to get the team winning trophies.
As for Daniel Levy, he runs the club like a business, which may not set the pulses racing when it comes to transfers, but it does keep things ticking over and prevent the club from falling into debt.
Levy has overseen an incredible stadium build, albeit delayed, but he has put his heart and soul into progressing the club forward.
The funds clearly aren’t thereto spend at the moment, but you need only look through our current squad to see that he is willing to spend when the right players come along.
Davinson Sanchez, over £40m. Sonny, over £20m. Lamela, £30m. Plus the fact he has been signing up a lot of the big players on bumper new deals.
It seems as if all fans do nowadays is complain. How about we sit back and enjoy the progression and the wonderful team that we have, instead of pointing fingers and demanding sackings every time someone has a bad game.
Support the team, otherwise you are part of the problem.
