Rested stars and second stringers pulled out of bars? The under pressure Pochmeister may pull a flanker (oh look, grow up), Poch said:
“…we are focused on this game it is important to win, finish well in the Champions League and build the momentum. We deserve to finish first. But the team deserves to build momentum and we can only do that by winning games.”
Poch is is looking to play his way through the slump. With Manchester City romping home in the Premier League and Spurs finding the ground bottomless even against supposedly softer opposition, keeping the momentum going is a tactic that obviously appeals to the chestnut coiffered one…
…it is a chance to go as far as possible in the Champions League and then see what happens. It is too early in the season to say. Its so important to be strong, keep our performances and improve because when you don’t win you have to improve.”
If this is the case, then the gaffer is mounting a bold strategy given that energy levels in key players are at an all time low.
Spurs next Premier League game is at Wembley in 3 days time against Stoke City whose form is indistinguishable from our own.
