The last week turned out to be a nightmare for Tottenham Hotspur.
They have made a shaky start to the season and following their latest defeat, it looks they are in a crisis at the moment.
Pochettino is under huge pressure. The performance against Brighton was so uninspiring that doubts surfaced whether the Argentine has lost the dressing room after taking the club to its maximum potential.
Of course, the players get a large share of the blame. It’s staggering to see so many players making silly errors in almost each and every game, and there is a dearth of dynamism and energy in Tottenham’s playing style this season.
A club insider told Athletic that although Pochettino has not lost the dressing room as yet, the players feel they are physically and mentally drained out under him.
“The place is a regime and they’re sick of him,” one dressing room source told the Athletic. “It’s his way or nothing, there is no balance. The players don’t get the impression they are trusted at all.”
Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to express their reaction, and the majority of them feel that Pochettino has lost the dressing room.
That’s outrageous. Nothing to offer the club? If they have said that out loud to a journalist that is a disgrace.

Poch finishes top four every season, despite no net spend and the wage bill of a mid-table club. Someone ask the players why they think he should change his methods. Is it just because they are lazy pricks who don’t like having to work hard for the two hours a day they’re in?

8 games in and nothing to offer ???
This is all getting a bit silly
All of a sudden we have the wrong players,,coach, tactics, training methods ?
These players need to get it sorted or piss off.

Why have they nothing left physically or mentally? They’re the same players who’ve been finishing top 4 with the same guy coaching them. Why have they nothing left?????
