The Comeback Kings of the Premier League


The Comeback Kings

The belief that Mauricio Pochettino has asked the Tottenham players to take on board and nurture is evident in the number of points gained from losing positions. The Argentinian coach has removed the soft underbelly Spurs had and turned us into the comeback kings of the Premier League.

When he arrived at the club we had a soft underbelly that kept getting exposed, we were always likely to lose concentration and concede not just one goal but several. Now we don't panic, we take it in our stride and probe for an equaliser and then the winner.

We lead the Premier League on this score having taken 17 points from losing positions this season, but we also lead the way on the same score since Mauricio Pochettino took over, rather handsomely. We have now secured 53 points from losing positions since he was appointed on 27 May 2014, which is 13 points more than our nearest rival Crystal Palace.

 Of course, it would be better if we didn't go behind in the first place but it shows what fight and determination we have to secure so many points and turn so many games around.

  1. There are many statistics around at the moment that reflect how well we're doing. Many that put us at the top. This one is probably the most important though as it shows to everyone that we're to be feared even when we're down. Feared when most clubs would be looking to relax after going ahead. That sort of stuff gets in your head and gives us a massive advantage. An advantage earned.

    I never liked that we used to have a soft underbelly. It was there to see though. Even with my fan-goggles on I couldn't deny it was true. Now though, even Man U personnel, who famously came back from 3-0 to win 3-5 at The Lane some years ago, are saying that we have moved past that under MP. So heartening.
