Despite not buying anyone in the summer of 2018, Pochettino led the way in the first half of last season. However, from February 2019, our situation is getting worse and worse, and the team's performance and style of play are getting worse. It's certainly not all bad news, with the Champions League semi-final reverse in Amsterdam in May bound to remain in the memory of fans for life, though the final performance was so numb later.
Most disappointingly, after a poor start to the season, senior officials felt the need to fire Pochettino. Since then, despite some victories under Mourinho, the style of the team has become so straightforward and ugly.
Although Mourinho's start to life at Spurs isn't bad in terms of his record, I think it's hard for him to build a team that could be close to the level Pochettino once was. Since his arrival, the team has changed to a direct and long-handed style, not in line with our club's proud tradition.
However, most Spurs fans are too eager to take a trophy, and if they feel like they can play like this to take a trophy, maybe they will accept it. But I don't think it's going to take the title like that, I hope I'm wrong, but I don't think Mourinho is the same manager anymore and I don't think he has the ability to gather a bunch of players and coach them to play modern, progressive football.
Pochettino's spending line-up over the past few years has begun to fall apart and the team needs to be completely rebuilt, but the club has done a bad job.
It's been two and a half years since Walker left, and when Trippier was sold, I thought the upper echelons were finally going to fix it, but it's amazing they didn't. Riccardo Pereira is a legendary player but doesn't see why Leicester City are selling him and why he is abandoning Leicester City to Tottenham Hotspur right now.
Left-back is also an issue. Danny Rose is no longer good, nor is Vertonghen ideal. Andy Robertson and Lucas Digney have been handed cheap signings over the past few years, and it's frustrating that Spurs aren't sure when they have a chance to sign any of them.
The goalkeeper and centre-back are also in trouble. Both Lori and Vertonghen are old, even though they were excellent members of the team. The attacking line looks fine overall, but I still want to see a midfielder brought in to partner N'Donnell.
The problem with this bad team building is not getting rid of players who are no longer good anymore. It took a long time to wash Jansen, Lorentt and Trepire, and they weren't good enough. It's a crime that Danny Ross and Vanyama can stay on the team. Olier is not good enough, and right defender Peters urgently needs to borrow.
There's a lot to go, captain Lori. His outstanding contribution to Spurs over the years must be respected, but he is no longer the outstanding doorman he once was.
In reality, my only hope is that by this time next year we can see hope, see a blueprint and plan and know clearly what the club is doing.
But to be honest, I don't see the ability of the current Spurs to get any trophies in 2020, and we look worse and worse. So as long as I can feel the team on the right track, it seems to me enough.
