Only in Pochs first season did we lose more games than we have currently and we still have 10 to play. The football in the main has been turgid , we've scraped past some extremely poor sides while our competitors have torn them apart. Our defence has been incredibly sloppy at times most noticeably the Mime artist of a 'Captain' Lloris & the full backs as a collective have been absymal. Injury plagued or not our midfield is shockingly thin and limited , Winks & Sissoko have done them and us proud considering their basic skill sets to forge a CM pairing between them but for a Top 4 outfit that (laughably) reckons it's only after the big prizes it's simply not good enough. The early glimpses of Lamela & Moura looking like they could put pressure on our supporting forwards has completely dissapeared so much so they can't even put pressure on players that are out injured- they simply ain't good enough regarding consistency or influence. Eriksen I believe has come to the point that all top players will/do at Spurs under the regime that they've done what they can and nothing is going to miraculously happen and along with probably having to barter for a market wage has probably had offers elsewhere and is just going through the motions now, Right? No Understandable? Yes The squad is too thin , there are too many weak links in it this isn't something that's just sprung upon us it's been prevelant and on the decline yet the club have just ignored it. The most frustrating part is that despite all of this we were actually in with a chance 3 of the last 5 seasons yet invested next to nothing to achieve/help it. As I have said previous on many occasion every good side peaks it doesn't just keep improving without competition or ruthlessness where needed for places, especially when your fighting supposedly on 4 fronts and against sides that are constanty trying to improve. Standing still is not an option, this and last season hasnt had any proactivity whatsoever from a managerial or buisness point of view , they've basically gotten away with it until now. And to the many that have come on here giving it the large one about how a few of us are wrong and negative in what we could see coming where are you now aye? The we don't need to buy anyone brigade? The we're just gonna get better and better lot? Look how far we've come / enjoy the ride people? After Pochs most recent it's gonna take another 5/10 years to change the mindset , are you really that naive ? Do you really believe any of Eriksen, Toby, Jan, Son etc will be here anymore than another 3 seasons tops? (some will be gone by next) If you believe that Foyth etc are worthy understudies you are sadly deluded and once a few big players head out the door the others start following. Kane will be in his 30s FFS. And soon it will dawn on you the Metal & Glass monstrosity that we've spent way beyond our means on isn't going to suddenly catapult us into being winners the buisness model will continue exactly how it always has possibly even tighter purse strings while we as fans pay more for the pleasure of it. Until this pathetic championing of punching above our weight, celebrating how well we've done with nothing to show for it this will go on and on. And with an ultimately flawed model the only way (without significant pro active investment) is backwards and you will have happily clapped it full circle.
