Opinion: Will It Be Poch’s Ego That Keeps Lo Cleso From Starting Against Sheffield United?
By Harry Hotspur -

Mauricio Pochettino’s pressers have occasionally become taught affairs, especially in the last calendar year, and upon each such occasion, the catalyst has been a journalist having the audacity to question the Argentine’s role as Tottenham’s coach.

The gaffer’s latest quotes over instant fan favourite Giovani Lo Celso could be misconstrued as containing a little of the old ‘look at me, I’m in charge!’ sketch.

For fans watching Spurs this season, the idea of a regular XI would undoubtedly be welcomed. Lo Cleso looked lively on Wednesday night.

During BT Sport’s Champions League coverage of the Red Star Belgrade game, it was suggested by Peter Crouch that Pochettino has not picked the same team consecutively since Feb 2018.

That’s 93 games. 93 occasions when either injury or indecision have hampered the Argentine’s work.

It is difficult to imagine what tactical advantage Poch might hold by flimflamming over Giovani Lo Celso starting against Sheffield United.

Spurs cannot afford to concede further ground in the Premier League, we all know that the ENIC model demands Champions League football as a minimum now.

The business’ debt is to great to wear a 5th place or worse finish.

Lo Celso is a breath of fresh air and Pochettino is in no position to ration that commodity.

No position at all.

    This rings true.

    Los Celso and N’dombele are the breath of fresh air that this season needs. There is an international break coming so play them and if they are tired let them be too tired to play for their countries, imo.

    Dyer and Foyth earnt their places for another game. Dyer could be handy against solid Sheff Utd.

        True, but it is what it is Olives.

        If and its a big if but hopefully we have turned a corner and can go on a run of winning games in the PL.

        Our limited squad does now have experience and although not contesting at the right end of the table they should be able to negotiate themselves up and above midtable to contest 4th.

        Alot of the traditional top 6 play each other over the next few weeks so they will be taking points off each other.

        COYS

  7. England Mike says:

    No reason not to play the boy unless he is injured, its a must win tomorrow to build a momentum after midweek, then its a break, so play him.
