To a degree, thatís already what this year always was. Thereís a certain level of enjoyment in beating Liverpool specifically in the Prem, and last year was a blast of a time winning the league. But I saw a path to winning the league then, and this year itís just not there. The weak Champions group has really tempered my excitement to this point.

Mostly I just ponder about how good Leicester is, tracking Monaco being truly awful but then being fine because Ligue 1 is Ligue 1, and generally how disappointing every Italian team is outside of Inter, who are still going to get bounced out of UCL anyway

Pep not being able to win at Anfield is hilarious.

I really don't know how to feel about this. Obviously results have been pretty bad the past 9 months, outside of the flukey Champions League run, but it feels like a gutpunch sacking the coach who gave you the most success you've had in a long time.

there's that notion in soccer that a manager's ability to motivate his squad lessens with each additional year as manager.

it's unfortunate with the young talent they had on the squad, but they look to have peaked under him a few years ago and several players haven't regained their form enough. levy shares some blame too, as he should have reinforced the squad as it was peaking.

dele and eriksen need to be key players but they have been lacking for a while now.

I can't say that I'm shocked but I didn't think Poch would get canned this soon. He's not blameless but the bigger issue is Levy's handling of the roster and his obsession with not paying a penny more than he wants for players.

That and the team is generally made up of players who either don't want to be there (Eriksen) or give shit effort (Rose) or just shouldn't be starting (Sissoko, Aurier) and the problem is there's no one else to take their places. Forgot about Dele, he's either been hurt or disinterested for a while.

I think it had clearly run its course. Poch is a great manager, but his time at Spurs was clearly done. Best to probably just rip the band-aid off now. That said, the real issue here is that Poch is the only good manager Levy has ever hired, so get ready for a shitty replacement incoming.

I'm prepared for the most underwhelming hire possible, so anything more than that will be pleasantly surprising.

getting sacked during the intl break must be weird as there isn't closure or goodbyes between the players and the manager

I kind of agree with this. It's such a shame because I really, really like what Pochettino brought to the table. But it is pretty clear that there are problems behind the scenes, particularly with players like Eriksen, Alderweireld and Vertonghen (guys on expiring contracts). Whilst Levy did open the purse strings this season, he has failed to do so the past 2-3 (likely because of the new stadium), which meant Aurier or Sissoko was about as good as we could bring in.
