Tottenham Hotspur’s surprise Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Colchester United was certainly a shock with the defeat only magnifying the poor start to the new campaign.

While there have been a mumblings of discontent from some pockets of fans on social media who have called for the club to part company with Mauricio Pochettino, talkSPORT presenter and Spurs supporter Paul Hawskbee believes that the blame should lay at the door of Daniel Levy and the board.

Hawksbee admitted his surprise at the negativity aimed at Pochettino and praised how he has helped to transform the club over the past five years while also highlighting how the Argentine has had his hands somewhat tied in the transfer market with both incomings and outgoings.

He singled out the example of Victor Wanyama where he was signed for £11million (BBC) and looked set to join Club Brugge for £13million (Evening Standard) but still finds himself involved in the Spurs first team despite the move failing to materialise.

It is an absolutely brilliant summary from Hawksbee on the situation at Spurs.

  1. I can’t count the times I’ve said, “all of our problems stem from Levy” he might be a Spurs fan and he might be a great businessman, but as far as a club chairman goes, he’s getting it wrong. He has one of the best managers in the world and still he refuses to back him enough to let him have a go at the title, just when Pochettino creates a miracle by getting us to the Champions League final, still Levy doesn’t back him to the degree he should. It’s happened with every manager we’ve had under Levy, that’s why we won’t win anything while ENIC, Lewis and Levy have the reigns. We can all see it coming, it’s got to the point where Pochettino has had enough and is now looking for ways out, if he leaves, it’s on Levy’s head. 12 years without a trophy for a club the size of Spurs, which other top six side has done that? It’s time the fans woke up and voiced against the board and chairman and showed Pochettino some support, it might be just enough to keep him with us.
