If you haven’t yet seen Mauricio Pochettino’s comments from after his side’s 1-0 win against Real Madrid yesterday, then Football.London have got you covered, and it makes for a very interesting read as the Argentine was far from his happy, jokey and easy-going self that we’ve all come to know and love.

Instead, much to the contrary, Pochettino seemed agitated, frustrated and annoyed as he suggested that he couldn’t answer some of the questions being levelled at him as they were questions for the club, as well as suggesting that he should change his title at Spurs to just being a coach.

It looks from the outside like the Argentine is far from happy with Daniel Levy and those above him at Tottenham. After two windows without a new signing this summer was supposed to be the big one, yet with just over a week to go the Lilywhites have brought in one player for the senior side after letting both Mousa Dembele and Kieran Trippier leave in 2019.

We don’t know Pochettino’s true intentions and it’s impossible to know what’s going on directly between Levy and Poch, but it seems pretty clear that something is very wrong. The transfer window closes next Thursday, and you’d imagine that Spurs’ gaffer would have wanted more than just Tanguy Ndombele by now.

The fans are in a similar position, the pressure is building on transfers, and whilst Levy may be keen on waiting until the last minute to force through a deal on the cheap, he’s robbing Pochettino of time to implement his fitness and tactical training with new signings.

Whatever happens in the next seven days, some real progress will have to be made for the fans and Pochettino to be happy with the summer, but it’s hard to see a way in which Daniel Levy can make up for his lack of signings over the course of the window so far.

  • What a load of bollocks. Pochettino was brought in to manage the players not the fucking club, he does not hold the purse strings or negotiate for players. Don’t be fooled as that thick twat Saunders is, Pochettino puts forward the names of players he would like the club to try and buy and players he would like the club to get rid of. Ndembele said that prior to signing for Spurs , he spoke directly with Pochettino Who convinced him to join us. Levy broke our transfer record to get Pochettinos number one target which proved to me that he is trying his best to get the players the manager wants. If any of you pricks think that buying a player is like going to a supermarket then you need your heads tested. Every club prizes their top players highly which reflects on their asking prices and it’s going to be difficult to pry them away, negotiations take time to reach a satisfactory agreement. Arseholes like Saunders, Mills and Cascarino should concentrate on improving their sad existence instead of running their mouths about Spurs.

    • Ray, wind the language in please, this is open to all ages. You can make your point without that and people will inevitably then follow suit to make their own points. Cheers.

  • I believe Pochettino is ambitious, build some consistency in the league and a cup here and there.
    To do this he needs a stronger squad. He has done miracles with what he has, but has fallen short.
    I think the frustration of the situation has gotten to him.

    On the contrary, Enic with Levy & Lewis are content with top 4 & CL qualification.
    This is their business plan, To spend and invest on the football side and actually win something
    is not their priority. Just my opinion
