MATCHDAY, and it's a big one! Bernabeu 🏟️, I hope you're ready. They said that you don't know how to appreciate your team, that you are never proud of your players. 😡 Today is the day to put them in their place! Show them that your love is unconditional. Let them know how much this club truly means to you.
No matter what happens, we will come out of this game with our heads held high and our hearts filled with pride. Because we know that ours is a club of complete INTEGRITY. Rest assured, our players will give it everything they've got on that pitch today, and it's our duty to cheer them on till that final whistle blows. Let's not disappoint! Hala Madrid! Hasta el final!
As Conte hugs Pochettino and reminds him that he's not that guy. The Argentine has been in management for 8 years and is yet to win a major trophy. I could make a joke about how he's perfect for Tottenham, but I'm a nice person. However, yesterday's result made me question those that insist he's a top manager. While it can be argued that this is the first job in which a trophy is realistic, it can also be argued that he should have done more considering the situations he's been in. Last season is a glaring example of this. Spurs were in the title race up until Hazard did the madness and sent Lloris back to France with his customary goal against them. They went on to finish 3rd. Below Arsenal. It was a two horse race and they finished 3rd. Again, yesterday, Tottenham were the dominant side in the fixture, yet they never once went ahead and managed to lose 4-2. Spurs choke when the going gets tough and that's down to the manager. They are comfortably the best side in England. Poch is a very good manager, but, to be mentioned among the elite, he needs to start winning trophies. Until then, leave the silverware to the big boys.
