Wasn’t it just a few weeks ago that we were basking in an untrammelled bliss? We’d finished 2nd in the league, and were looking forward to moving forward, consolidating and who knows even exceeding my miserable expectations?
Bang. While we slept heavily reality hit us like a bucket of cold water in the face. From foetal and snoozy to stark awake; a waterboarding descent into hell.
Meanwhile in Gotham, Pochettino is telling people he’s calm.
He can’t be be calm. He can only be calm if he’s been lobotomised. He must be …fibbing. Compromised is one thing, but how compromised can he become before his position is untenable?
The Spurs squad wasn’t for for purpose as we finished 2nd. Yep, that’s right you bedwetting ninnies, our sole purpose is to win stuff and that squad was incapable of winning anything.
Oh sure we achieved lots of minor moments of cheerfulness along the way, but in the final analysis we basically walked away with a Junior Division Swimming certificate with ‘2 Lengths In Pyjamas’ crossed out and ‘Lots Of Possession Against Chelsea’ scribbled over the top.
Poch’s two core problems are straightforward enough fare and not to be debated by the sane.
- Address the £60million starting XI sinkhole courtesy of Sissoko and Lamela.
- Making the bench serve an actual purpose, oppose to house left over bottoms
Given that Spurs are the ONLY Premier League club not to have bought and that we have lost ANOTHER two first team players, we’re 4 members of our starting XI down.
Let me just repeat that for you, because I know that a handful of you otherwise intelligent and considered readers are secretly backward deadbeats.
We’re 4 members of our starting XI down.
Poch not only gets a break because he’s a nice guy, he gets a break because he’s not actually in charge. He’s not the decision maker. So the fact that we play Newcastle this weekend, and we’ve prepared by going backwards isn’t his fault.
But tell me, at what point does his position become untenable? For me, that point is when the window closes and Levy has treated him with abject contempt by making insufficient effort to address the 4 players down business.
THFC is not as some feeble minded tossers would try to kid you a poorhouse. We are perfectly able to trade and to spend sufficiently to get ourselves out of what is a negative position.
Again, at what point does his position become untenable?
