Firstly, I must say that no one man will ever have the ability to answer all the problems our club has. It will take more than one player or manager to fix everything, but I do believe we already have an answer to some of our many problems. No, it is not Harry Kane, though I believe he can be the answer to our striking problem for many years to come. It isn’t Hugo Lloris or Christian Eriksen, in fact it isn’t even a player. It happens to be our head coach Mauricio Pochettino. Please, let me explain.
Our squad is filled to the brim with great, youthful talent, and we need someone to develop those players and give them a chance. Poch may very well be that man. If you look at what he did at his previous job, I think you will see why he is exactly what we need. Now, Pochettino cannot be given all the credit for developing the many young stars he did at Southampton, their youth academy and scouts should be given much credit as well. They are the ones who gave us Gareth Bale, which shows their eye for great talent. While at the club Poch gave many youngsters a chance, and made some others into stars, like Schneiderlin and Lallana. He took them and their young squad to a high finish in just one year with the club. His time at Southampton proves he has a great eye for youth, and is never afraid to give a newbie a chance. Just take a look at Kane, Bentaleb, Mason, and Dier-wolf for proof.
Pochettino might not be the answer we were looking for, but he does have the ability to make our club great. We are in a desperate need of someone who can develop our up and coming stars. As a club, I do not think we have the ability or the resources to try and buy ourselves a way to the top four, or a title like Man City or Man U. We will need to develop players to reach that top tier of football clubs. Is Pochettino going to be the man to lead us to the Promised Land (Top 4)? I don’t know, but I do know he is going to need more talent to work with if we are going to make it there. I think that it is going to take time to reach what we hope for, and we must be patient. Knowing all this, we should be hopeful and excited for what lies ahead. COYS!
