For those of you struggling with the reference in the headline, it hails from Mario Puzo’s gangster novel The Godfather where the phrase “he’s thinking of going to the mattresses”, is uttered.

Mattresses feature a lot in Italian folklore; in the 16th century, during times of war, people were said to hang mattresses down the sides of towers in order to minimise damage from cannon fire, but it also refers to the laying out of mattresses to accommodate your troops – Cosa Nostra or otherwise – who would barrack in the same safe house during feuds etc.

Pochettino and his coaching staff have 100% gone to the mattresses.

I am not struggling to express my admiration.

This is the same respect I had for Villas-Boas.

Both of these men are mightier than the weasels we have been lumbered with.

Dear Lord, a billionaire backer who doesn’t back and a CEO whose favourite phrase is ‘let me get back you you on that one’.

Deadbeats.

    There’s just NO interest in what goes on on the football pitch.

      Look at our scouting appointments, jesus wept.

      We get an acoustic engineer who has worked with U2 to look at the new stadium.

      We hire ‘some blokes’ from a pub do our scouting…
