Pochettino makes fans change their opinion


There are people criticising the impending sale of Clinton Njie, but has Mauricio Pochettino not revealed he knows what he is doing? Has he not revealed he can improve a player and isn't he right to get rid of players who don't take their chance of the training ground to make improvement in a year?

It is for him to determine if the potential is there and if it is going to come out quickly or whether it is a long wait. As a football club improving we can't really afford to wait around while someone improves, as we have improved ourselves.

I have said it before and I'll say it again, as a club we have to be ruthless with players now, you improve or you go, it's that simple. There are plenty of players out there who want a chance, plenty to take the place of someone stagnating. We have to bear in mind the home grown quota of course and that has to come into the manager's thinking.

We are not where we were two years ago so players now don't get the luxury Erik Lamela got, and he only received that because his value was minimal in the transfer market.

If you stop and think back a couple of seasons there was Kyle Walker everyone was complaining about it seems, Danny Rose many fans were saying couldn't defend, Mousa Dembele producing decent performances but really going through the motions for a player of his talent (was still untapped potential), Erik Lamela pining for Italy.

Then we had Jan Vertonghen's attitude which cost him the captaincy opportunity, Harry Kane was called a Championship player because he had no pace or skill, and last summer Eric Dier was written off after pre-season games as a disaster waiting to happen as a defensive midfielder.

Fans are not always the best judges of players and have had to change their opinion on quite a few.

  2. Finally someone talking sense...trouble is everyone thinks they know football when they clearly know less than 5% of what the pros know. In poch we trust.

  3. Have to agree with that article here. Poch is a great manager and probably would know which players to keep or let go. If some players are deemed surplus to requirements because of their lack of commitments for our great club, then I see no reason why we should keep them just because some fans want them to stay. I'd rather give those youngsters in our academy a shot if they are capable of doing the job decently.
