Most of us realise that Eric Dier and Moussa Sissoko aren’t the world’s greatest footballers – however one can’t slate Pochettino for playing either of them so frequently – he’s got no choice.

Dier was an influential player, in so much that he had a lot of the ball.

However, any talk of Barcelona being interested in the 24 year old is risible.

Nobody lost the ball against PSV more than often than Eric.

Given the Cheltenham born boy’s position on the park, it is pretty scandalous that he was one of the worst at recovering possession. 

Solution?

Difficult one to call.

One idea might to be invest in better players for is a visibly tired squad.

Another is to open the biggest square footage retail outlet for a football club in Europe.

    Just reminiscing to when we first qualified for the champions league under Redknapp. Surreal, exciting, nerve wracking. Strange how it now feels so like the norm that these cheap exits don’t hurt as much as they should. Depressing too. That’s what the business model has done to us. At least if you sell your club and it’s soul for oil money you get success. We sold ours for the purgatory of pointless comfort, with no real prospect of actually winning a flip thing.
