With Tottenham Hotspur suffering a narrow defeat to Manchester City on Monday evening it was inevitable so overreaction would take place from a section of the fanbase.
Fans often react in the moment whilst the red mist is in full flow and disappointments are burning bright – we’re football fans after all and immediately post-game isn’t always the best time for reflection.
I’m guessing that’s true of the below fan who took the time to converse with Talksport yesterday morning.
The outlet usually gives you what you expect and they revel in whipping up controversy and frenzy and if genuine, this was definitely the proverbial gift horse.
???? 'I think it will be good for Spurs if Poch goes.'
???? 'He doesn't have a Plan B, he's very arrogant and he's unproven.'
???? 'Eddie Howe would do a better job with the Spurs players.'

As said, it was probably inevitable that Poch would come in for some criticism, especially in light of him stating he’d never been more unhappy at the club with everything that has gone on, and continues to, off the pitch but in amongst all the meltdown it remains our best start to a Premier League campaign I believe and despite the defeat we are only five points off the top and there are clear improvements we can make in our performances, so I’m not getting the doom and gloom.
In any event, you can see all the reaction on social media by clicking the above Tweet but this one caught my eye for all the right reasons, even if it came from the presumed wrong direction.
As an Arsenal fan, I can't help but agree with this fella. Tottenham should get rid of the man who has led them to their highest finishes in PL history. Defo a good move. in Charlie we trust!
