Tottenham fans are debating the future of Mauricio Pochettino, after his side put in yet another lacklustre performance on Saturday.
While most fans are still absolutely certain that Mauricio Pochettino is the man to take Tottenham to the promised land, quite a few are starting to question his judgement after Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at West Brom.
Not for the first time in the Argentinian’s reign, Spurs have just seemed to lose some energy and motivation in the final weeks of the season, and the defeat at the Hawthorns is their third in their last five matches in all competitions.
Of course, those calling for Pochettino to go are only a small minority, and most fans are more angry at the club for not backing him more than at the boss himself, but concerns are certainly growing about his game management.
One of the biggest compliments regularly paid to Pochettino is how fit and energetic his Spurs side looks, but they have completely gone off the boil in the closing stages of the season.
With no trophies left to play for and top four all but secure, you can probably excuse players for taking their foot off the gas with a World Cup to look forward to, but fans are nonetheless upset with their side and manager.
Some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…
Will always be thankful for how far Pochettino has taken us domestically however his in-game management and substitutions in critical matches of the season has to surely be looked at and questioned on the whole.

Starts an injured Harry Kane while insisting the likes of Toby and Danny Rose weren’t fit enough. Claims Lucas can’t get on because he’s “played little football the past 6 months”. I’m fed up with it! He is so stubborn with his damn philosophy, it’s gonna be his undoing.

Pochettino is a good coach. Could be at a bigger club than us.
Problem is, he simply doesnt have the squad to endure his demands of levels for a whole season.
We either increase the quality of squad to be able to confidently rotate, or stay in limbo.
Over to you ENIC

People slaughtered Harry for dropping a 10pt lead with a third of the season still to play. Poch has almost managed to do it in just a month with a much better squad.

I mean Son for Dele instead of Lamela. Poch “I just don’t think you understand” that Dele is more of a goal threat than that donkey…

Many criticised Reknapp for having “favourites”
Can someone explain to me how Lamela isn’t Poch’s favourite?
His performances show he shouldn’t even still be at the club let alone the 1st team.

I love Poch & he's clearly a top class coach but his massive flaw is his substitutions as my god, he hasn't got a clue when it comes to in-game tactics & changes. Yes, he's still learning but he's not learnt his lesson at all on this in 4 years with us.
