Sorry but when you're 1-0 with 3 subs. Have wasted numerous chances and have Lamela, Son and Llorente on the bench to get the 2nd, Wanyama to shore it up and drop Alderweireld you cannot blame the chairman. Bloody cop out to blame transfer activity.

Last time he dropped Alderweireld we lost 4-2.
Made his subs too late, don't blame his assistants, he's on the phone to them, he's calling the shots.

Both fullbacks responsible for the goals. KWP lucky to still be on the pitch.
This is Pochettino at fault.

If you told me at the start of each game that Cardiff/Newcastle/Soton would be winning their games with 5mins left I would have laughed.

At least I'm not Bobby Madley
Worst performance of the season so far.

Get up to play the big teams but we've been shite all season against the relegation contenders especially away from home.

Reeks of a shocking attitude.

Ridiculous by Poch. Is he really all that he’s cracked up to be? Why is he resting Toby and Son when we’ve got three weeks off after today. I actually don’t think we’ll make the top four now

Winks injured, Dier and Wanyama barely played in months, Dembele sold and not replaced, Sissoko overused

We clearly ran out of steam and that starts from midfield, Southampton had plenty of chances throughout the match, Redmond in particular had a stinker for them.

We need an overhaul in 2 areas, central mid needing greater depth and full backs being improved upon what we currently have

Yes Poch is frustrating not being proactive enough in games, but his squad is not good enough in two areas

So maybe buy new ones?

We've pretty much agreed they're not pulling their weight

Coming 5th or 6th in a 3 horse race would be a terrible result.

and yet if we don't fluff numerous first half chances that's all academic. Lucas, Alli, Kane all fluffed chances.
Yes we need midfield impetus and yes they got overrun however he still had options to choose from, and didn't.

He let the game drag on with good options available, he let the game drag on when they changed their shape.
He had options to choose from to secure the lead, or to extend it and chose neither.

If we go 1-0 or 2-0 down and look utterly out of ideas then fair enough, but I won't cop blaming the chairman when you're 1-0 up to bottom half sides and lose.
People tried to do that v Inter away, and it was as much horseshit then as it is now, even worse when it's used as a reason to blame the defeat on his inaction with Burnley and Soton.

You have a fullback who lets the ball run 3 yards out from goal, an England international btw. An England international who 18 months ago disrespected his club and manager. The manager chose to keep him.
We have our 3rd choice RB who is arguably at fault for both goals, we need new one's this summer, that wasn't evident last summer.

He had 2 CM's he could have used this match. 2 off the bench and chose neither.
Had 3 AM's/CF's on the bench to choose from to get a 2nd goal and only chose them once we were behind.

He had options, just chose to sit on his hands.
This is on the manager, and on our fullbacks and Sanchez.

When we couldn't grind out draws for so long, was it really a three horse race?

Think we've been flat track bullies really most of this season, piss poor top 6 record too W2 D1 L5

Since January 13th, Spurs have now picked up 1 out of 15 league points with Harry Kane and 12 out of 12 without Harry Kane.
Harry Kane is not our problem, he won us the game midweek

Our midfield and full backs are and to a lesser extent, Poch
