Major credit has to go to Mauricio Pochettino for what’s going on at Tottenham now. It’s interesting that so many players in the England setup have been coached by him in the last few years. Is it all down to how he prepares his players physically and mentally? There doesn’t seem to be any over elaboration from a tactical sense. Not that there needs to be.
There is definitely a massive amount of managerial talent in Spain. Will be interesting to see what the likes of Paco Jemez and Marcelino do at bigger clubs. It seems almost inevitable for Unai Emery. He hasn’t had the biggest of budgets despite being in charge of some big Spanish clubs in Valencia and Sevilla. There’s a good amount of local talent in pretty much all the big European leagues to be fair. Spain , France and Germany lead the way and England bottom of the ladder of course.
Let’s hope this game is as good as Arsenal v. Leicester. I doubt Tottenham will overwhelm City again. Pellegrini might want to consider more than a two-man midfield this time around.
Yes, they need to think long-term but can’t afford to fall back in the process. With the likes of Everton, Swansea, Stoke City and Southampton all capable of usurping them, and all with arguably stronger squads too, Pochettino needs result in the short-term as well.
Very good piece here. Tottenham has dialed back on expectations and that should actually help the club moving forward. This side is definitely not as good as those from previous seasons but the stability will help.
Great piece here from FourFourTwo’s Rory Smith.
I’d agree with pretty much everything in there especially the fact that Dan Levy’s poor decisions along with Manchester City’s monetary might has led to the gap increasing. Not that I’m too bothered about Tottenham’s future success.
Still can’t see how Mauricio Pochettino expects to get by with just Emmanuel Adebayor, Roberto Soldado and Harry Kane as forwards. Definitely one of the weaker Tottenham sides in recent times, yet they still held Arsenal to a draw.
No guarantee at all. History suggests the opposite. We shall see, won’t we?
