I still can’t believe that I actually have to write an opinion piece like this.
Over the last few weeks, I have seen more and more people on Twitter calling for Pochettino to be sacked. Some want him gone now, some want him to be given the elbow at the end of the season if he does not win a trophy.
I can’t put into words how stupid I find this.
Maybe it’s just me, but I remember a few months back when we made a Champions League final despite making no signings in over a year. I also remember making four consecutive Champions League group stages, despite only appearing once in our history before that.
On the other hand, we have had a bad 2019 and we did lose away to Leicester after a dodgy VAR call, so maybe Pochettino should leave after all.
I feel as if a number of Spurs fans have become impatient and greedy. They have forgotten where we were five years ago, and they want to make the leap to regular trophy winners overnight.
Pochettino is still a young manager and is learning by the season, just as his players are. We sometimes forget that Poch hasn’t been to a Champions League final before either. He hasn’t won a league title or even a cup. This is all new to him too.
So, why are we, as the fans, not putting our faith in the man who turned down big offers to stay with us? He may be going through a rough patch with the squad at the moment, but I tell you it would be a whole lot rougher without him.
He stuck with us. We stick with him.
With consistent funding over the next three years, who knows where we’ll be. Or maybe we’ll be in the same spot we are now. I’m still not sure, but I know I want Pochettino to be managing us whatever the case.
Poch Out. I’ve never heard anything so ridiculous.
