Did Poch take Spurs for granted?

As I see some fans get all emotional about his son signing a contract I cant help but feel that Poch must also have regrets.

His attitude changed after the Champions League loss. Most of us saw this. Rumours of him not travelling with the team etc.

I think as he looks back we will also accept he lost some professionalism this season and this ultimately filtered down to the team.

Poch is a young manager and has zero experience in long term management at one club. I think he will now have learnt that you need a disciplined approach to building and rebuilding teams.

He should be a better manager IF he has learnt his lessons.

I agree with this statement. It was hard to witness, but there's no denying he threw his toys out the pram after the final. We can debate forever how valid it was, but it was not how an experienced manager would handle the situation. It divided the players and fanbase as to who was on his side and who was with the club. Obviously the regulars loved him, but it's worth noting that Toby only signed a new deal as soon as we hired Jose.

I'm not sure how or what he'll learn if he doesn't go elsewhere before returning to the club, though. But will he harbour the same resentment toward Levy? Will he sulk it off if we don't get the next big name he wants? Maybe once the wounds have healed, if he wins a trophy and we do in the meantime it would take the pressure off any return.

Sandy article from only 18 months ago where he appears to be comparing Pochs early years with Fergies at United.

He even compared bringing youth through and looking forward to the next 10 years dynasty.

How things change eh

"The sky is the limit for Poch and his set of players, just a matter of a bit of patience"

So much for patience

You’re the one who constantly brings it up. I’d rather focus on Jose and his abject record and dull football

Levy took Poch for granted, thinking he could keep getting top 4 without being supported.
