MP is all about motivation.
He gets his players to work hard, in training and on the pitch by pure force of character.
Therefore players play well above their natural level - Fergie was the same.

Just maybe we are not getting the results in the cups and big games is because the opponents are just as motivated as us for these games. Then it comes down to moments of magic by world class players and tactics.
And luck.

The truth is our players are limited - just look at how many goals our defenders (dont) get, or midfielders for that matter. They are well drilled to play a certain role, but there is little flexibility.
It is not entirely MP's fault that we are tactically limited in that way, but MP does not strike me as a total football kind of guy either. I reckon Jesus makes any tactical switches.

"Or it's been a poor season again..." WTF???!!!
If we don't win the FA Cup that's 10 years without any trophy that's a poor season imo sorry but I grew up in an era where trophies are the thing to aim for and for the last ten years we have failed to win a thing so I do apologise if league positions are secondary to me when I'd love to see my team winning things again.

You grew up in an era of mid-table mediocrity. A Cup run was the only thing that salvaged an otherwise dreadful season.

I support the wrong team because I want my team to win things? Fucking hell football supporters in the year 2018 are fucking shit.
No because you judge a season as shit because we haven't won a trophy. You sound like an entitled rawkite or glory hunting utd fan.

If you can’t take pride in the immense progress we’ve made over the past five years then I feel sorry for you tbh.
How much is Levy paying you?
All the Poch Supporters always reference the year AVB left and Tim took over to show we have improved giving the impression we were a poor team.
In Redknapps time he did well with a WORSE SQUAD than we have now and he achieved some good league positions and the common consensus on here, is that Redknapp was not the greatest manager. 2009 we went champions league Redknapp got 4th again but we never qualified because chelsea won the cup and in the bad years we were coming 5th bar 6th once,Yes we have improved with 3rd and 2nd, means more money for Levy but its the same CL that Redknapp gave us in 2009.
I think Poch has been blessed with a very good squad it can improve but its a squad that is capable of winning things now
the Poch supporters reference how much other teams are paying for players and were lucky to be where we are, but how much would are players cost if we sold them.
I told my brother we were going to lose against Juventus I told him you cannot play Trippier Davies and Dier its too many players to carry against top teams when it really matters.
I also predicted when we were drawn against Juve that we will lose because Tactically Poch is inferior to Allergi.
Poch has improved us but why is it a problem when someone feels with the squad he has we should expect to win trophies especially when it makes it easier to keep your best players happy.

We haven't won a trophy in 10 years mate and have 1 league cup trophy in 20. It's not just 1 bloody season you know. I totally understand supporters frustrations because this club just doesn't win anything. It's about time this team delivers.

Did you predict we’d beat Real, Dortmund, United, Liverpool and Arsenal? Because there’s predictions and then there’s pessimism.

Pochettino 100 % is the right man for us going forward I have confidence he will get us winning trophies not only about that but playing great football developing players and competing across the board within our parameters and beyond.

"he will get us winning trophies..." could be a way to go on that...
