Poch’s Falling Down Moment LOL by Dan Smith
Thank you Poch for cheering me up. It’s never fun watching Arsenal miss a stoppage-time penalty but then a few minutes later, I was comforted by watching the Spurs manager have a breakdown. The media’s darling could no longer keep his composure. Five years of failing to win a trophy, choking when it matters and just overall being ‘Spursy’ has finally got to him.
Asking pundits to look into Xhaka’s tackle wasn’t a ploy to distract from failing to win his last 3 League games, in the process going from title challengers (in their own minds) to looking over their shoulder. It was his falling down moment, the man is cracking up. Because if he generally felt a tackle from our player needed a re-look, what about the actions of Sanchez or Danny Rose?
If he thinks a player getting off lightly for an offense costs him points, what about his skipper getting away with headbutting someone, just because he’s England captain? Of course, the press won’t mention this. Nor will they mention he’s never looked close to winning a trophy. This time next year, we will read how Poch is a great young coach, with a young squad (a year older) even though they will again be nowhere near the top.
Or maybe just maybe he will be in Manchester or Madrid? Maybe in the summer he will tell Daniel Levy ‘enough is enough, get me out of this hell hole?’
Maybe we are seeing the man break?
