    Sorry poch but you need to carry the can for some of this, Eriksen is not here for whatever reason yet you continue to not only play him but leave him on.
    You bring dele back straight away, what kind of message does give to others in the attack, who have have been patiently waiting their turn. He had a good game but was never going to last the distance.
    Second half we couldn't keep the ball or win or win it back, partially because of the two mentioned above, yet you bring on Llorente, what's the point if we don't have the ball?

    I have no doubt some players are letting him down, but poch, you're not helping yourself.

    This. Have to say whilst Moura sometimes had poor touches, he did make some great runs and the likes of Kane, Alli constantly held onto things for too long. i wonder if we've let some cliques have formed and it plays out in the link-ups we see on the field. Moura at least had pace on the break and made Soton think twice about pushing up and when they did Moura was key in us hitting them; however him being taken off before Alli - despite Alli looking clearly out of gas - did make it look like there really isn't as much of a meritocracy going as one would hope...

    Those wishing him gone really should snap out of it. He's perfect for the club. If we finish 6th, that is very disappointing for sure, but actually is par for our wages.

    Sorry, but who is wishing him gone? All i see is laments on the fact that we may be reaching a point where he goes as things are stagnatiing etc, but i don't see anyone wanting him gone...

    Have to question Poch's HT team talk. And the Ref clam who got Poch red carded to the stands. Normally he's talking to players in breaks of play. When we lost momentum Poch wasn't there to get them focused. But back to HT - I think Poch was probably thinking well done lads. Keep going, everything is good. Get a second goal etc etc

    Actually: it was preditable Southampton would change something and improve their performance second half. We were not ready for that fight. Poch didn't react to their HT sub, or give the side a rollocking for not taking chances. But then he did not know what was to come. Some in the match thread called it - southampton will come back stronger 2nd half. Did Poch?

    We played so well first half I can see why Poch would be pleased. What an upsetting performance as we totally dominated them first half and threw it away. A bit of a wake up call to Poch, Levy, the squad.

    Totally agree about the cliques thing, it's why I would never ever play Eriksen and lamela together, it doesn't work because lam is taking one of the cliques place.
    The videos of lamela at Roma he was a greedy direct player, now he looks like he is totally unselfish and trying to I gratiate his why into the team. He is caught on the ball for the same reasons dele and Eriksen r were today, trying to play in the popular choice, not the best placed player.

    Me, I can take a player having bad form, but not trying, goodbye.

    The challenge is how to build a great team when one comes to the end.

    He is paid 7 million a year to figure that out.

    In the match thread there were a few, and others if not quite wishing for it certainly blasé about his departure.

    We are when we lose badly, and that was terrible.
    Everything was there today for us to smash them, even a decent ref, and they went to the beach in second half.

    No, not at all, go read.

    Bloody annoying to lose but, no a couple of hours and I’m over the worst.
    Go read, don’t take word for it.

    Anyway Liverpool next. Chin up!

    Difference is there is feck all we can do about it.
    So we might as dry the tears, metaphorically, and move on.
    As for replacing Pochettino, a little knee jerk, no?

    Only have two criticisms of Poch. 1. his forsight is not as great as his analysis. 2. he needs to do what Guardiola did - demand more clinical finishing.

    It is almost a cultural thing. Create a culture and focus on being a ruthless machine that finds the net as routine. Develop the attacking setups - movement and finishing mentali1y in the side. It did not happen overnight at city. They went almost 2 years before Guardiola got rid of thier wastfulness. Remember when Guardiola came out publicy lambasting city's ability to finish their chances? Poch doesn't have their riches but he needs to lay down a marker never the less as Guardiola did - state we have to clinical. We have to focus on working space in attack, and putting teams to the sword.
