I would never associate Pochettino's Spurs with late (undeserved?) winners... I'm not sure where you've gotten that idea from (if there is a statistic somewhere I'd be happy to see it). I recall one festive season there were a couple of notable ones and of course that night in Amsterdam. The City game was miraculous in itself but let's not forget we neutralised them at home for a deserved first leg lead. As for the final... well the less said about that the better. Yes there was an element of mismanagement but Liverpool were nothing special... play that game again and we would win half the time. I instead remember the countless times during Pochettino's tenure that Spurs absolutely pummelled the opposition and failed to win (or indeed lost) the game. I won't plum the statistics for you but the match records are there should you care to. Let's forget for a moment all those flirtations with winning a domestic cup (which requires luck no matter how good you are) and instead just consider the 16/17 season as an example. Without wishing to appear biased I think we were the best side in England that year... best differential, most goals, least conceded, prettiest to watch. Yet we fell short to a club that could not seem to lose no matter what... a club that in fact had come 10th the previous season and would come 5th the following. So call that what you will (bad timing perhaps?) but fortune was clearly not with us that season. Pochettino won a lot of football matches (with style) yet no silverware... a lesser manager may well have done the reverse.
