As much as I want the team to lift, if the players lift for Jose, that will be the biggest shame.
Poch has been left completely out in the cold by his underperforming wantaways. One of the saddest days in my recent memory.

Tottenham have made a poor start to the season and currently find themselves at 14th in the Premier League. They will take on West Ham after the international break.
Spurs announced yesterday that they have parted way with Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentine was a favourite among the fans, and took Spurs to the Champions League final last season where they lost to Liverpool in Madrid.
