Home » » An article worth reading
Danny Higginbotham was a former centre-half who now writes for the Sun and feels stories of Tottenham suffering burn out last season are complete rubbish, which I entirely agree with as you know.
He goes on to explain in his article and Spurs approach under Pochettino of the 'four-second press' to stop counter attacks and explain the press, retreat, breather; press, retreat, breather system we use. It is a nice piece that is simple to understand and will give a useful insight for some fans.
Against Bayer Leverkusen tomorrow we will be coming up against a team who also use a high press, it is more prevalent in the Bundesliga than the Premier League. We will be under pressure and will have to deal with that ourselves, while they will have more experience than we have playing against it.
It makes for a fascinating game.
