Here we go again...
Exactly. Makes very little sense. I really don't go in for the "it's a pay day" stuff, as he could hang on until the new year and likely have his pick of a few better clubs.I suspect if Spurs get Conte I don't fancy him staying long because of how Spurs are run under DL, they are bound to clash.
Aren't you missing Mina and Digne? I don't know who else you have back there apart from Godfrey and Keane but Godfrey was covering at full back so it seemed more like Holgate was playing out of necessity than anything.Oh we're going to be in some serious trouble the next few weeks with the games we have coming up now.
The last few matches should have set us up nicely for the run in, but we've messed it up badly.
It's a familiar story, season-on-season. Injury hampers us, lack of depth in positions and then poor individual mistakes.
Can't/Won't blame Benitez for this as we were in the shit before the season kicked on. But we didn't have the injuries... However I can't understand playing certain players.
Carlo did the same, insisting on playing the likes of Iwobi and Holgate when other players have shined.
Did Poch really overachieve? Take out that dream CL run (which is still cup football where anything can happen), Spurs were shit in the league that year IIRC, and then shit again the next year which resulted in him being sacked.As for Levy, I think what we've seen of him and his penny-pinching ways over the last decade is because he was on a mission to finance and build a billion pound stadium. Poch was brought in to do as well as possible with minimal spending while the stadium was being finalised/built and he did magnificently - he massively overachieved with what was offered to him which led to the bar being raised. His first couple of seasons were like a perfect storm of his energetic pressing game and a fit, young squad which is why I don't think he'd be half as successful coming back. PSG are a pretty awful watch so far - they've won a good few of their league matches by fortunate late goals, although they were great against City in the Champions League.
