Could it be that Mauricio is plotting an audacious strategy, one that includes throwing the kitchen sink at our Champions League campaign?
Pochettino said: “… in English culture, it is the Premier League and then the FA Cup. The Champions League and Europa League are important but they are not at the level of the Premier League.
“It is so difficult to explain to people on the outside. Only when you are here you understand that the Premier League is massive for every club, the players too. In Spain or Italy, they prioritise the Champions League over the domestic competition.”
The Champions League is surely no less gruelling than the Premier League, although you could succinctly argue that no football manager ever got the bullet for losing four games in a row in that particular tournament.
Regular readers of this drivel will know I am hungry for silverware, hungry like a f___ing junkie for that ‘I’m outside now’ text message from his man.
