Check out his CV mate speaks for itself:p
Great manager, but it doesn't make sense to claim he is too experienced to finish below us, when he has done so two seasons in a row.
We could just as easily make claims about teams not finishing below us because they spend tens/hundreds of millions more than us on signings and wages.

Perhaps what I should of said is that I think he will finish above us with his resources.

Tottenham’s big game away record
You can read plenty about Tottenham’s bitterly disappointing display against Arsenal, following their bitterly disappointing display against Manchester United, in 16 Conclusions from Saturday. But it is also important to highlight exactly where Tottenham must improve if they are to become serious title challengers.

“It’s important for us to start beating the big teams away,” said Harry Kane on Thursday. “Not just Arsenal, but all of the top six. We’ve done very well at home against them in recent years. But if we want to be challenging for the title, these are the games we need to win away.”

Nailed it. Tottenham’s last 19 away games at big six teams in the league, a run stretching back to January 2014, have produced one victory and nine points. More worrying still is that Tottenham’s otherwise excellent defence have conceded goals at a rate of 2.05 goals per game.

The positive spin is that this is Tottenham’s last problem to solve, but the negative spin is that this abysmal run shows no sign of ending. In the last 12 months alone, Tottenham have lost 1-0 at Manchester United twice, 2-0 at Arsenal, 2-1 at Chelsea and drawn 1-1 at Arsenal. This is the handbrake to progress under Mauricio Pochettino.
hopefully the last few remaining in denial can take their blinkers off and acknowledge what is staring us in the face. we are not going to get anywhere near winning the league by dropping 12-13 points away at our rivals every season. if it couldn't get even close to happening in a season with an almost certainly never-to-be-repeated home record, it definitely won't be happening when our home record regresses closer to its mean.

we need to get better in this regard.

How many points do you think Chelsea dropped away from home last season against their rivals?
