Opinion: In Pochettino we trust?

The biggest defeat in our club’s 138 year history on Tuesday against Bayern Munich, rocked us to the core.   

It would be hard pushed to find any Spurs supporter predicting that we would concede 7 goals against a Bayern Munich team who were considered by many to be not the vintage team of previous years after Liverpool cruised to a 3-1 win in last season’s Champions League last 16 clash.

With a thunderous atmosphere and explosive start, both Son and Ndombele were guilty of missing early chances which would have likely changed the outcome of the game and avoided us fans to nurse the bruises over the last few days of being the laughing stock of North London rather than being the pride of North London.

Being annihilated with such ruthless efficiency by the Germans has opened up the question as to whether Pochettino has taken the club as far as he can.

A growing amount of supporters are saying Pochettino has taken the club as far as he can  and that we should look at Managers who are currently available such as Allegri or Mourinho who have won a great number of trophies.

The upcoming games the club will play against Brighton, Watford, Red Star Belgrade and Liverpool, will go a long way to tell us whether Pochettino can galvanise the squad and get us back on the right track for a top 4 spot and to challenge for both the Champions League and FA Cup. 

We’ve had much-loved Managers in the past such as Martin Jol who gave us hope of a top 4 spot but fell short of doing what Pochettino has achieved on 4 of his 5 seasons in charge.

It would seem ridiculous to consider at this early stage of the season to make a change, however Pochettino will know that an end to our inconsistent form will have to end imminently.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. This is becoming a joke. I’ve been a Spurs fan since the 60’s what is happening. This team is becoming the laughing stock of the league

  2. The players clearly downed tools against Brighton which is unforgiveable. Despite what is becoming a regular occurrence for Lloris to make an error, we could have rolled up our sleeves and made a fight of it to come back and win the game.
    The recent revelation yesterday that Pochettino has become more distant with the squad makes me doubt whether we can get back on track and start playing again as how we can if a number of players don’t back the Manager.
