As the Golden Cockerel so poignantly stated two days ago on Facebook, Pochettino found a way to make a Champions League final, a league cup final, two FA Cup semifinals, two third-place and a runners-up spot in the Premier League, all despite not having a home stadium for a portion of his tenure, or being unable to purchase a single player for 18 months.
That’s not an alarmingly good CV, especially considering he lacked financial support and had nowhere to call home. The odds were irreversibly stacked against him.
Since Pochettino left, Spurs haven’t finished better than fourth in the top flight, lost prematurely multiple times in the FA Cup, and haven’t made it past the Champions League round of 16.
They did, however, qualify for the 2021 Carabao Cup final only to fire their alienated manager less than a week before falling 1-0 at Wembley, Pochettino’s so-called home for almost two full seasons, to Manchester City.
Bring Pochettino back, and give him the time, tenure, and cash he requires to, at long last, end a distinctly barren, inconceivable 15-year trophy drought.
