Former Liverpool and Nottingham Forest striker Stan Collymore has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur face their biggest off season in several generations and has urged the club to throw their support behind Mauricio Pochettino.
Collymore who now works as a football pundit believes that Pochettino has been playing a game of poker with the club over the past few weeks where he has publically stated that he may consider leaving North London if there is not a change in the way which they operate (The Sun).
Spurs have failed to sign a new player in the previous two transfer windows yet still made it through to the final of the Champions League and finished in the top for of the Premier League for the fourth successive season.
The former striker feels that if Daniel Levy decides to back Pochettino in the transfer market he has an excellent platform to build upon, but should the chairman not look to allocate transfer funds then it could see the Argentine and several key players depart Tottenham.
Biggest off season for several generations. Poch ( my opinion) playing poker with the club.
"Back me properly or…"
If he wins that battle for £££, he keeps am excellent nucleus with him, club don't smell the coffee, him and several leave.
Back him. He's earned it.

This is certainly a pivotal time in the club’s history to see if Daniel Levy is serious about taking the club to the next level. If he fails to do so, it could set us back years if Pochettino throws in the towel and some of the first team squad follow. We have the opportunity to bring in two or three quality players and start to challenge for trophies on a regular basis.
