According to former Everton manager Sam Allardyce, Tottenham Hotspur overachieved under Mauricio Pochettino and are now essentially on a comedown from last season’s Champions League excursion.
While “Big Sam” has a 100 per cent win rate as England manager and an equally impressive record chugging pints of wine, his punditry is somewhat wayward at times (and by that we mean almost always).

For starters, how exactly did a squad littered with talent like Tottenham’s last season break expectations? A Champions League final is impressive, but what happened to their domestic campaign? Beaten in the fourth round of the FA Cup by Crystal Palace, dumped out of the Carabao Cup in the semi-final by Chelsea, and then a narrow fourth-place finish in the Premier League despite being outside favourites for the title for a short period.
Allardyce’s proposed solution? Spend big…
“Poch overachieved & now there’s a comedown.” ⬇️
“He only way to get over it is to buy new players.”
“He’s got to get the mojo back in the players & without new signings that’ll be difficult for him.”

Spurs broke their transfer record this summer on Tanguy Ndombele, and also bought Championship talents Ryan Sessegnon and Jack Clarke, while Giovani Lo Celso arrived on loan. Spending is clearly not the be-all and end-all.
