Pochettino responds to fan criticism

There is no escaping the barrage of criticism towards Tottenham and Mauricio Pochettino at the moment, despite the fact he led the team to a Champions League final mere months ago.

I believe that fans understood the drop of form during the tail end of last season, as the players were clearly focused on the Champions League Final and making it there injury-free.

However, the start to the new season has raised a few questions among the fanbase, and rightly so.

Spurs have won just two of their eight games this season, both coming at home to Aston Villa and Crystal Palace.

Tottenham lost to Newcastle United at home and Leicester away, as well as being knocked out of the League Cup by Colchester United.

Even in the draw department, Spurs threw away 2-0 leads against both Arsenal and Olympiacos away to finish the matches 2-2.

Pochettino has now responded to and accepted the criticisms (Alastair Gold): “That is normal. The fans are always right to criticise. They are the only ones who you cannot complain about. They are right to express their emotions. The fans are emotional. They keep the game alive. You cannot criticise the fans.

“I accept that when you do not win, you have to accept that you were wrong. It’s normal when you lose the game you cannot say you were right, or be arrogant. You need to accept the criticism.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

The fan criticisms are more than just, as the team and manager need to be held to account for the poor run of form. However, I do not agree with the whole Poch Out movement, as I still think the gaffer is the right man to lead Spurs.
