NICE TRY BOYS
Paul Jiggins and Neil Ashton have hatched this curate’s egg between them.
I hope The Sun have provided the appropriate midwifery assistance to accommodate this deadly duo, at what must be a difficult time.
There is no last ditch attempt to land Pochettino by Real Madrid taking place.
CUT N’ SHUNT
Indeed, hanging upon this concocted tale of Poch being close to a Real Madrid move is just as daft as clinging onto the hope that somehow Spurs will right the stupid stupid stupid wrongs of the summer transfer window – in January.
Yes, it is true that Mauricio Pochettino is deeply unhappy with how he has been left to mend and make do for the 2018/19 season.
It beggars belief that Spurs were the only club across Europe’s top 5 leagues not to spend in the summer.
The inability to sign even one player in the summer has pressured the entire squad.
Notably muscle injuries have plagued Spurs. Danny Rose, Mousa Dembele, Jan Vertonghen, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen have all currently side-lined, although there have been as many as 8 players out on occasion this season.
Pochettino fears that he is becoming cut adrift from the project which now appears to be more about the propulsion of the THFC brand, than it does about the actual football team.
Contract renewals for key players feel like they have been mothballed. In 2019, deals for Mousa Dembele, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghemn all run out. Christian Eriksen’s £75,000 a week contract expires in 2020.
It is highly unlikely that Poch has a long term future at Spurs.
Because nobody under Daniel Levy ever has.
