    October has been a nightmare for Tottenham Hotspur. They have conceded 10 goals in two games, turning a shaky start to the season into a crisis.
    Spurs look nothing like the team they were and Mauricio Pochettino is under more pressure than he has been at any other point during his time at the club.
    Is this the natural end of a cycle, or has something gone badly wrong?

    This story is so forward thinking and explained why the sacking was made! (Probably not wise from a financial position but none the less was needed)
    I do have one request for a video.
    We have teams like Rangers, who want their glory back and others like Astana who want theirs known.
    My request is, why some teams find the Europa League so important and other, like arsenal (who at the time of writing this, have not qualified for the next stage but still feel the need to field an inexperienced squad, with a mostly empty stadium) do not. Is the financial gain of the premier League so great? I think arsenal's best chance of reaching the champions League is by winning this tournament, not through the league so should pay this tournament more respect!

    You need to do another one about Jose morhino at Tottenham and his new tactics personality change and transfers and relationship with Daniel levy as well as the previous record his got with other clubs and what he can potentially bring to Tottenham as well as potential trophies and where Tottenham stand now after potchitnho and where they could be at the end of the season with morhino if all goes well

    You got to remember why Poch got the job in the first place. Levy needed a man he cud get away with giving fuck all money to why he was paying for the building of the stadium. It cost so much that he needed a young man who was so thrilled to get the job that he wasn't going to make a fuss about money. Now Poch had got to a lvl where he cud start asking for money, Levy wud rather give it to a more experienced man with trophies under his belt. Poch has proved he's not a winner. His crying for hrs at winning a semi final showed his lack of belief that he cud go one better. Also his zero trophies show he's no winner.

    Overachieving is when a team like Leicester manage to perform at a higher lvl than they should be capable of for a period of time. To which they fall back down to their original lvl afterwards. Leicester won a title and the next season were in relegation battle for some time. So proving that they overachieved.
    Spurs on the other hand got a squad of players together that were of a higher lvl than they'd had before. They consistently performed at this higher lvl for 4-5yrs. Proving that this new standard was in fact their new lvl and the lvl of this group of players. They weren't overachieving for one season then falling back to mid table, they stayed at the lvl of their ability, thus no overachieving! They topped a 2yr league table but failed to win either yr due to unfortunate timing. That was their lvl. The club may have overachieved for where they were used to but that has nothing to do with the quality of the players. If the player were overachieving then none of them would be playing for their country. But they do cus that's their lvl. How many of Leicester player played for their country? Fuck all cus they were overachieving. Spurs sitting 14th in the table is however underachieving. That's why poch got the boot.

      As somebody from the states who started following football 4 years ago and a spurs fan. I couldn't agree more. It seems levy pulled the purse strings closed once the stadium started construction. I admit I'm not tuned to the intricacies of football politics but I'm not buying that players are tired. Doesn't Man City and Liverpool pretty much have the same lineup of tournaments? I think the players are pissed and Mauricio is gonna pay the price. Is it expensive to go and watch a match?

    It looks bad, but we are 6 points away from the relegation spot but only 3 points away from the top 5, if we get a high scoring game where we win we could possibly get back on track and bring in a replacement for Eriksen who fits our play style and can bring back our old style
    We need to also need to do different training and some less training days or mixing up the training would make our player happier and want to try hard
    In January if we get rid of our old players to bring in young prospects who have time to grow and become stars.
    Pochettino needs to start working on our players morale or we wont have any of our prospects wanting to stay because they’re not playing enough games across the stadium
    And he needs to stop focusing on getting far in the champions league and works on qualifying for Europe. We can win away in the CL and then he experiments the teams in the prem against equal opposition making us lose
