Tottenham Hotspur boss, Mauricio Pochettino, has certainly been under pressure so far this season, perhaps more pressure than he has ever known as Spurs manager.
The club have just three wins from eleven across all competitions, which is simply not the form of Champions League finalists.
Compare this to Liverpool who have a 100% record in the Premier League after eight games, despite the fact they were in that same final with Tottenham.
Ex-Spurs midfielder, Paul Stewart, has now claimed that he is worried that something is not quite right at the North London club and that he fears Pochettino has lost the dressing room.
Stewart also admits that, although he does not want to see him sacked, he is not sure whether Pochettino will keep his job, but the Argentine may choose to walk rather than be pushed out.
Tottenham face Watford at home this weekend, the Premier League’s bottom club, in what feels like a very pivotal fixture for Pochettino and Spurs.
Stewart said (LoveSportRadio): “I’ve watched them this season and I was as disappointed as any supporter when I saw the performance against Brighton.
“You don’t have to be a genius to see that something’s not quite right. They’ve had the opportunity with the new stadium to step up a level and it hasn’t happened.
“I just hope that Poch hasn’t lost the dressing room. It’s so important and if you lose that, I don’t think there’s any way back. I fear that Poch has lost the dressing room.
“I honestly don’t know whether Poch will keep his job. You’re always one game away from the sack. I get the feeling he’d walk rather than get pushed. He’d be honest and say he’s taken it as far as he can and bow out with pride.
“I wouldn’t like to see him be sacked, because he’s taken the club such a long way.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
Anyone who sees the smiles on the players’ faces around Pochettino in training and claims he has lost the dressing room needs to have another look. In my view, that is not the problem. The issue is that Spurs need some fresh blood and a mix-up if they want to keep up with the likes of Liverpool and Poch needs the funding to do that.
