Phil Neville, just like everyone else it seems, think we have a superb manager in Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino and feels he is essential to our future success.
"I absolutely love him, they are the best coached team in the league, I think they're a young team who are getting better and better.
"People keep saying about Kane leaving, Alli leaving, but they have got to keep hold of that manager because I think he is one of the best.
"Trippier's made five chances today and he's had no opportunities at Spurs, this was only his third start.
'For someone that's only made three starts that was an unbelievable performance today."
He seems to be forgetting that there is life outside the Premier League, the 25-year-old (26 in September) right-back has played 1.103 minutes. He has 3 UEFA Champions League games, not exactly a nothing competition, 4 FA Cup ties and 2 Football league Cup ties as well as having a baby and being unable to get enough sleep.
Yes he has had to be patient and the press therefore start transfer rumours but Trippier is quite happy at Tottenham and has never been to the manager to ask to move or kicked up a fuss.
I wrote a while back that we need to use the Kaizen approach to improving not just players, but every aspect of the club, that every staff member should be looking to see how they can improve how they do their job, be it changing supplier or something they can do themselves. It was interesting to hear Mauricio Pochettino say the same thing in a post-game press conference.
We clearly think the same, the small things make a difference and lots of small things add up to something significant. The next few years are an exciting time for our club after many years in the doldrums.
