Tottenham LIVE: Spurs forum and blog
Getting back to the basics of management how long has Pochettino continued with this completely inept funnel everything down the middle no width no pace football?
No matter what tinkering ineptitude he's been up to recently it's all delivered the same endless pass pass pass with absolutely no positive movement/positioning/vision.
You can't break through well drilled banks of 4 trying to thread the ball through the eye of a needle especially at walking pace that even a vets league side would feel is leggy.

Bayern the quality side they are tried to get at us but we were making more clinical...

So it was the League Cup and of course Pochettino loves to throw a mish mash of lesser spotted forgotten about squad members in its the least he can do to make them feel special/included.
It was clearly evident from the off that the reveared under 23s we hear so much about are just waiting to be unleashed on the world of football to...
