Tottenham ‘win now’ impossible club… The reason why local fans cried ‘Pochettino’
- on Apr 04, 2023
Tottenham has been aiming for ‘Win Now’ over the past few seasons. However, Tottenham is not a team that can win right now, but a club that urgently needs to be ‘rebuilt’.
Tottenham Hotspur drew 1-1 with Everton in the 29th round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Goodison Park in Liverpool, England on the 4th at 4:00 am (Korean time).
It was a game that should have been won. Prior to this game, United lost to Newcastle United and were unable to widen the gap with Tottenham. If Tottenham had won, it would have been a good chance to gain an advantage in the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) fight by widening the gap with Man United, even though they had played two more games.
The sacking of coach Antonio Conte has not changed anything. Tottenham came closer to victory as Abdoulaye Ducoure was sent off in the 13th minute of the second half and Harry Kane’s opening goal from a penalty kick in the 23rd minute of the second half, but Michael Keane conceded a mid-range wonder goal in the 45th minute of the second half and had to accept the result of a draw.
Maybe it was natural. Tottenham appointed assistant coach Christian Stellini, who was like Conte’s henchman, as acting manager. In fact, it was no different from a declaration that he would digest the rest of his schedule with ‘Conte Soccer’.
Over the past few seasons, Tottenham has pursued a ‘win now’. A typical example is the sack of manager Mauricio Pochettino in 2019 and the appointment of manager Jose Mourinho, the ‘contractor to win’. There was a strong intention to create results with the legacy of manager Pochettino, who made Tottenham’s golden age.
But it failed. Mourinho resigned in disgrace for the first time since Porto lifted his first trophy. The hasty decision of Tottenham’s leadership to sack Mourinho ahead of the League Cup final also played a part in this.
After that, after going through the manager Nuno Espirito Santo, Tottenham appointed Conte as manager. As expected, we wanted to win the trophy through a leader who had a knack for winning. The result was as everyone knows. Coach Conte left Tottenham without a trophy, causing division in the team.
Tottenham fans chanted manager Pochettino’s name as the draw drew near. Fans will know it without even realizing it. The commanding tower that Tottenham needs now is not a manager who will win the championship right away, but a manager who will normalize the team so that it can challenge for the championship.
Tottenham need to ‘rebuild’ step by step. Tottenham’s aces are still Kane and Son Heung-min, but since both are 30 years old or looking at the 30th line, it is impossible to trust these two forever. The condition of the defense is also serious, and it is safe to say that there are no center backs and wingbacks who pay for Tottenham except for Christian Romero.
You need to reorganize your squad with a clear plan. Arsenal, which is currently running for the top spot, is a good example. Coach Mikel Arteta, who presented a clear vision to the club’s leadership and knew how to implement it on the field, improved the team’s constitution by making changes to the main team for three seasons. The result is showing up in first place, eight points ahead of Manchester City.
Liverpool is a club with both success stories and failures. Coach Jurgen Klopp joined his team during the 2015-16 season and transformed it into a team that could win the championship step by step, applying his own tactical colors. The UCL championship in the 2018-19 season and the league championship in 30 years in the 2019-20 season were not obtained for free.
I’m struggling now. Liverpool cruised by winning the League Cup and FA Cup last season, but neglected to rebuild the midfield, and the result led to a decline in performance due to the overall overload of the team this season. Klopp’s Liverpool is a good teaching aid that the rebuilding has to start at its most glorious moment.
So did Tottenham. As a result of the UCL runner-up in the 2018-19 season, the leadership may have judged that it was time to ‘win now’. But there were signs everywhere that a ‘rebuilding’ had to begin. There were enough prognostic symptoms such as Dele Alli’s sluggishness, the aging of the main defense, and a steady decline in performance in the league.
But the club’s leadership wanted to win now. Managers Mourinho and Conte, who were known as ‘winners’ but had not stayed with the team for a long time, were appointed. The result is Tottenham’s still irrelevant, and only a stain left on the careers of the two coaches.
Tottenham need to start rebuilding again.온라인카지노 It is not unrelated to this that local Tottenham fans chanted Pochettino’s name. You have to look far. Tottenham is a team that can never win now. Tottenham needs to transform into a team that can challenge for a solid championship through ‘steady rebuilding’ with a ‘director with a vision’.
