Another one bites the dust.... Taking a 1 goal lead to the Bridge with a team resembling a makeshift life raft patched up with blue tac and sellotape. This is actually getting predictably boring now , big match , big chance... Throw a lead away, then start trying before inevitably whimpering off with nothing but delusional talk of how proud everyone is in the face of adversity. Pochettino the 'Magic Man' so magic he was forced into making the correct change by Davies getting injured, Rose came on and actually made us look like we were interested. The self preservation by the dumbing down of Trophies to somehow deflect the actual ability to win them is all too prevalent for me. The fact we've turned up to a gun fight with a water pistol will somehow be a comfort to all those hiding behind Building schemes and financial graphs in a clear measurement of 'how far we've come' or 'punching above our weight' best loser tag lines. The depletion of our 1st team squad, the sheer mismanagement of it, the zero planning or investment in the playing side when nothing has been achieved while profits, tickets, sponsorship, TV deals, competition money has never been so high is as contemptuous as it is negligent! Think about it , as fans we are investing more than ever into this , as a club they're taking more than ever out of it , putting less back into it all for our Manager to be given peanuts to work with and tell us Trophies don't matter. What's worse is its almost thought we should be thankful for all of it. Where's your Pride ? I'm sure there'll be a plethora of cult lobotomised optimists who'll say it's 'only the Carabao Cup' and pretend we're after the bigger things , but my question is to them how do you possibly seriously contend for the Big Prizes if you can't pick up the little ones and you have the transfer kitty of a mid table Championship side? It's akin to earning minimum wage and refusing to drive a Ford because you only want a Bentley. It's pie in the sky stuff. Besides being (shafted) hamstrung Pochettino has some serious short comings in his managerial repertoire. This is not to say he is a bad manager or that he needs to be moved on but his stubbornness and willingness to tow company line will unfortunately be his and this teams downfall, which I think we can all agree would be a huge shame. This promising project is on the brink of collapse as has been predicted by some of us who haven't had rose tinted laser eye surgery and it doesn't please me to say told you so one bit. There is still time to salvage something of course but come on how long have we watched this revolving false dawn and failure windows??? Something needs to change and change fast ! The excuse culture needs to stop, the glory in failure needs to stop, the patience with these serial failures needs to stop, the fan base needs to wake up from this stupor you're being scammed!
