So we have a new man in charge, one that is already dividing opinion, whilst some seem very happy to write him off before his interpreter has had the chance to speak…
Of course I say the last bit, rather tongue in cheek as we should already know that he speaks very decent English, but why let the truth get in the way of a good scaremongering. I have gone on record in saying that with a new manager, needs to come a fresh approach from the club as a whole. Lets see a big smiley face from the boardroom and for the first time in years, real transparency in who is responsible for what and how. If Levy can`t be the friendly face of Tottenham, what about Baldini or someone else who can charm the press from the trees and the fans from their comfy armchairs.
That might be too big an ask for a board that seem happy to keep everyone in the dark, but hold everyone and everything accountable for our woes, yet fail to take responsibility for their own mistakes. Can they really learn from past mistakes and failures? Moving on from that, I wonder if we as fans need to take a long hard look at our own agenda and support? Both Harry and AVB questioned home fans and how quickly they wrote of the team and perhaps made life harder for the players in adding pressure as opposed to bugging them up. Did they have a point?
Watching Liverpool`s fans during the 25th anniversary of Hillsborough gave me a lump in my throat. I have to confess to feeling real warmth and respect for them as a mass and also questioned the difference between them and us in terms of never say die support for their team. That support wasn`t a one off this season and of course it is easy to be united when you are winning every week and looking strong contenders for the title. Would we all be more positive and singing as one, if we were doing well in the top four? Perhaps we should ask Harry or AVB?
Do we as fans need to get our heads out of our backsides and relearn how to enjoy and support our club? Often at football today, I don`t feel there is the genuine enjoyment and love of the game, but instead it is replaced by a more demanding and expectant body, that doesn`t want good football and the right result, but he insists on it. As fans we talk of what the club should do and where they go wrong, but can we do the same with ourselves? We argue constantly that the manager needs time and patience, but how easily did we turn on Sherwood and similarly there was a high percentage stamping their feet in dissatisfaction at all of the other recent managers during their tenure, despite our last three actually doing rather well in terms of results and league position.
In Mauricio Pochettino, we might not have the man that everyone dreamed of, but equally we have a man that looks quite capable of doing a decent job, given time and support from the board, but also that same backing from the clubs fans...
