I’ve said it.I won’t be the most popular person at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but I can’t keep it in any longer.5 Pressure is growing on Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham following another poor displayCredit: AFP or licensorsMauricio Pochettino is clearly a good manager.He’s moved Spurs up from being a team fighting to get into the top four, to a team finishing in the top four (although, the way they’re playing at the moment, that run could be coming to an end).But I don’t think he can take us any further – and it doesn’t look like he wants to.The 1-1 draw against Watford has left Spurs five points behind Chelsea in fourth, and the Hornets were unlucky not to get the win on Saturday.I’m entitled to my opinion. I’ve been a fan since I was a nipper and been a season ticket holder for around 30 years.I’m sick to the back teeth of seeing endless sideways and backwards passes.Keeping hold of the ball is a waste of time if you don’t hurt the opposition when you’ve got it. And Spurs rarely hurt the opposition these days.Why, oh why, can’t they ever break down supposedly inferior sides?That’s Pochettino’s fault. He tells the players how he wants them to play.5 Dele Alli rescued a point for Spurs on the weekend as equalised late on against WatfordCredit: Reuters5 Tottenham are currently five points off the top four after nine games playedCredit: ReutersFunnily enough, Liverpool and Manchester City do quite well moving the ball forward quickly.Talking of top teams, they win things.But if you want to win things, you need to put out the strongest team you can in the domestic cups, a concept Pochettino doesn’t seem to understand.He ‘rests’ Harry Kane for Colchester in the League Cup….and the chance of another trophy bites the dust.Fans want to see their club win trophies. That’s what they remember and tell their grandchildren.The run to the Champions League Final was great but why couldn’t Pochettino lift the team for that match, the biggest game in the club’s history?He dropped Lucas Moura, the bloke who got us there, and didn’t have a Plan B when Liverpool got a penalty after 22 seconds.OK, it’s not his fault that there are a number of players who don’t want to be at the club.5 Spurs have won just once out of their last seven games in all competitionsCredit: ReutersSpurs chief Daniel Levy makes shock admission Mauricio Pochettino has players he doesn’t wantBut it is his fault if he keeps playing the ones who have just given up.Christian Eriksen is convinced he’s now good enough for Real Madrid.Dream on, mate.
