Spurs fans Losing Belief in Pochettino.
Vital Spurs fans Losing Belief in Pochettino.
Vital Spurs have nearly 15,000 members, in our latest poll for the first time we have seen Poch's unofficial approval rating drop from around 95% to close to 70% in one of our biggest poll responses ever;
The Poll asked:
Do you still have faith that Poch can keep us on a progressive path?
Have no idea! 6%
You could infer or draw differing conclusions to this poll result; not least of which is that some of our fans are 'fairweather' or simply aren't taking into account the difficulties he's been facing.
What seems to have driven sentiment over the edge is of all people, Wenger's latest comments, which are a tremendous and one could even say vicious put down of Poch and his thinking, Wenger might as well have called him a 'loser' what Wenger actually said:
Wenger was quoted by
as saying: 'I am not Pochettino, I am Arsene Wenger'.
'I am here to fight as long as I can, as long as mathematically it's possible you have to fight. You cannot give any other message out.
'The game today (v United) has to make us angry and even more determined.'
It's clear that Wenger was directly referring to Poch surrendering all hope of winning the Premier League after our 1-1 home draw against West Brom.
Many Spurs fans were hugely disappointed at Poch for the manner in which gave up all hope of the title, especially as not so long ago he'd made it clear that domestic cups shouldn't be our priority and that we were good enough to win the Champions league or the Premier league and that's where our focus should be.
At the time, you could either believe Poch's pronouncements were bold or rash. I thought the latter and many agreed; for a club starved of silverware and constantly attacked for a poor winning mentality, writing off domestic silverware seemed to me to be presumptive and not particularly smart, conceding the chase for the Premier League also begins to look like we were waving the white flag after the West Brom game, and hence our poor start yet again in the Watford game?
We are in a mini slump and Wenger's comments have put fuel on the fire that's been raging about Poch's perceived poor decisions especially when it comes to team selections and his inability to change the direction of games where we've been struggling.
Personally, it's my view that there are many all valid reasons why our results have dropped below what was expected, the question is now, can Poch change the perception of mental weakness and poor attitudes?
