Remember when it was said that Pochettino was working miracles with the team he had in 16/17? Since then Toby Alli & Dier have all gone down hill, Rose Walker Jan Dembele Wanyama CE have all left (correct me if I'm wrong) not a single player has been upgraded on from that quality balanced 1st team that finished 2nd. A lot of dross has been bought after a long period of neglect to plug gaping holes in the team. JM has acquired 9 players on a budget of £52 million, at best he's replaced Wanyama & Rose, there's been a backwards step in Walker Dembele Jan replacements and none at all in CEs case. Alli who along with CE was our only other goal threat who even at top of game blew hot n cold n has been Luke warm at best last 2 - 3 years. So If Pochettino was a miracle worker before with a better team then genuinely how can people expect better from an inferior team? I'd really like to see someone answer this because it's not a manager that crosses that white line it's the players and if they're a worse outfit player for player than 4 years previous then how can that be the lofty bar set ? For a couple years I seemed to be 1 of very few that was critical of the previous regime at how poor a lot of the football was often rescued by a Kane brace or a Son goal but was constantly told I was negative and pessimistic. So I dug through some of the results and these aren't all the losses and draws but some of the more woeful ones 2018 Spurs WestHam D Saints D Newport D Rochdale D Brighton D West Brom L Wolves L Palace L 2019 Burnley L Saints L WestHam L Bournemouth L Newcastle L Leicester L Colchester D Brighton L Watford D Sheff U D Where we are at now is 2020 Spurs Draw a game = Nuclear Melt down, "was never like this B4" People are in serious denial of how bad we had got and are equally in denial of the rebuild that's currently underway. I can't believe that anyone is that stupid to believe a Manager would say to his players give the ball away as much as possible and let 'inferior' sides dominate while you tuck in. I also can't believe anyone is stupid enough to believe top player/s walk out on a pitch with 90minutes + to win a football match against supposedly inferior opposition but choose to be outplayed instead under instruction. It's a complete cop out designed to protect lazy, clumsy, half hearted, overhyped players and blame the Manager. They also did this to Poch to a degree towards the end. The truth is as has always been if you don't buy top quality you won't be top quality. So can everyone stop pretending we were miles better before and never had bad results or performances. A few fine margins Vs Palace & Pool + a late equaliser Vs Wolves it's not all as doom gloom as some want to paint. There's an irrational hatred of JM and as said earlier people expect more from a lesser squad (again correct me if I am wrong) Granted it's not been easy on the eye but we have had some really good results this season which people only latch on to the odd draw etc as if they're unacceptable or were never heard of. Certain players need to step up and make things happen , individually & collectively there's no excuse for them as players to be out played/out thought/out hussled etc other than their own ability/effort, JM can't mark players at set pieces for instance where most of our goals have been conceded. Players have to take responsibility yet fans just want to jump on JM. Just look at things objectively , we draw 1-1 with Wolves in 2020 it's end of the world we Lose 1-3 to Wolves in 2018 and no one bats an eyelid. It's insane !
