    that said i would like the club to take firm action on post match investigations, appeals etc. i don't think we do enough to protect our players at the highest levels from dubious refereeing, hence we are always the soft target

    Dunno Madrid at home last season was pretty good.

    That was indeed good, but Dortmund are in better form than that Real team at the time, plus we had most of our first choice playing unlike today...

    Yeah but it was still Madrid with Ramos, Modric Ronaldo and Benzema.

    The man is amazing. Keeping our positive run going with the approx 22 fixtures in 70-something days with all the injuries and no new stadium. And making Sissoko a positive too.

    Yes, and we also had Kane, Alli, Toby, Verts, a right-back in form, a left-back etc:cool:

    So what did Poch say at half time I wonder, "Don't worry boys it's only Dortmund"

    The adaptability he showed was so so great. Deserves his days off now.

    What with how we invariably seem to perform better in the 2nd half of matches, perhaps Pochettino should incorporate these tactical video sessions into the pre-match routine!

    Interesting that because at about 30 mins you could see across the pitch to the tech area and poch was going nuts screaming at the players and waving his arms, something we very seldom see him do.

    Love it when I can watch a match in Block 143/144, within earshot of our dugout :cool:

    Very frustrating that dozens of those seats remain empty at every fixture, presumably they’re mostly reserved for friends and family or hospitality guests. Although some always seem to get put on sale a few a few hours before matches, gutted that I didn’t get to sit there for the Dortmund game as the late release wasn’t until 5pm on matchday o_O

    So next time you get one can we expect a detailed report like the above?!

    "Pochettino has not won anything, but he has created a club that expects — and is expected — to do so in the future. He has fundamentally altered the fabric of the place that he found. He has made what was once unthinkable entirely feasible, and he has done it so often that his brilliance has become mundane. It is easy to be fooled into thinking this is normal. It is not, and the best measure of how extraordinary it is may well be how ordinary it seems."

    From the article above. A fantastic summary.

    Some people myself included at times, forget just how far we have come as a club under him. To not just break the top 4, but consistently break it to an extent that it now has to be branded the 'big 6' is something not done before - Everton once finished in the top 4 but never again (knocked out in CL qualifier:D). I might of had the odd criticism of Poch, but that is far outweighed by my appreciation of the job he has done and continues to do. The thing I love most about him is that I'm gradually believing (rightly or wrongly) that he loves the club as much as we do.....

    It's good to look from outside the bubble sometimes, any rational football fan (ie sans the social media crowd) can surely join the dots and see its an exceptional effort by Poch (and the club).

    Ive given up thinking (or noticing) Poch does anything wrong or quite frankly can't be bothered to criticise him. 1.Because he has so many brownie points in the bank and 2. What's the alternative, he's the best manger by far and if i could give him a 10 year contract i would.
    Most of the stuff you could moan about is quite minor, so what's the point. Better of soaking up the good stuff.
