Poch Gently Nudges His Players Under The Bus
By Harry Hotspur -

The Mirror is carrying Pochettino quotes that don’t sit well with me. What do you think?

“The feeling at the end, when we conceded the three goals, it was like the team was tired and gave up a little bit,”

“Maybe that showed a little bit our frustration in the game because up until 83 minutes the team were alive, we were fighting, trying to create chances to score a third goal, and we were still in the game. But they were very clinical.”

The only line in there that is vaguely honest, is the part about the Germans being very cynical. Mind you, even very cynical is an understatement. Bayern München bit, tasted blood, and then they went berserk.

Spurs looked physically done in before the first half was over. The feel good factor from Son Heung-Min’s 12th minute goal was extinguished when Kimmich equalized, and then horribly eclipsed by Lewandowski.

That was the point of no return for Tottenham, in case you missed it.

When the players came back out, they actually looked completely demotivated.

Who’s fault was that, then?

    The wind has gone out of their sails. Not all the players but Eriksen, Alli, the defence. No spring in their heels. Can’t blame them really. Team spirit is shot to bits. ‘Gave up a little bit’? They folded lock stock and 11 smoking barrels.

  2. Paul says:

    Any comment about Jan and Eriksen totally dismissing the affair rumours today? After you claimed it was all true from your sources inside the club?

    I have to admit you had me going with the ITK stuff for a while….

    A bit of a reality check, this is no world beating Bayern side, they’re rebuilding and don’t have the funds to compete with the mega clubs. I’d also bet most of our players are on better money than them. But they showed us up. How in the name of God can we not be as fit as them? There is no excuse for this continual exhaustion after 30 minutes, what is going on? I’m sick of the same mistakes, slow starts , knackered after half an hour, general lack of interest until the other team score, giving a goal away early, giving away one just before halftime, and just after half time, and conceding in last ten minutes. We have stopped scoring late winners, can’t score from corners. Can’t defend a simple ball over the top, no idea of where opposition players are, until it’s too late. Wake the f,*CK up and stop disgracing that shirt.
