Yet another season has past by and left many Tottenham fans confused and bewildered. Over the course of the 2013-14 season fans saw two managers come in and out of the ever present revolving door called White Hart Lane. Andre Villas-boas and Tim Sherwood both tried their hands at the club but, neither succeeded. Sherwood even managed a 50% win ratio with the Lilywhites but, even that wasn’t seen as satisfactory by the club.
So once again a new season and a new manager await the North London club. Mauricio Pochettino was announced the new coach early this week. Bringing multiple familiar faces with him from the potential sinking ship known as Southampton.
Inside information believes that Pochettino is going to actually be given time to work with the club. If this is true Tottenham could be in for a real treat but, only if Mauricio is given full reigns of the club. His use of time at Southampton proved very beneficial. Bringing a relegation destined side back to life. Unfortunately for the Argentine post season has seen Southampton owners rid the club of all the hungry players Pochettino had crafted. Many believe this is the initial reason Pochettino and many others at the club left.
The final question is whether the former Saint manager can replicate the same make-over he did to Southampton, with Spurs. After countless managers have tried to bring the best out Tottenham, fans are noticing that maybe the problem isn’t the manager but, the players. Perhaps yet another summer overhaul is in need. An overhaul directed by the coach not the chairmen. Either way there is only one thing certain, there is a certain toxicity around White Hart Lane. Toxicity created from the taste of Champions League football the fans got seasons ago. Which has left many hungover and feeling hard done by. Will he change this and bring back glory to White Hart Lane? Or will he be the next manager to walk to the chopping block? Only a trigger happy Levy can tell you that.
