Mauricio Pochettino deserves the Manager of the Season award ahead of Guardiola and Klopp – agreed?



Spurs opinion: Mauricio Pochettino deserves to win the Manager of the Season award

Tottenham’s Premier League season did not end with a bang as we played out a 2-2 draw with Everton at home.

Christian Eriksen rescued a point for us with a great free-kick, however, Spurs have bigger things to worry about, mainly the Champions League final.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side face Liverpool in an all-English final on 1st June, and reaching Madrid is a testament to the great job that the Argentine has done for us this season.

The Daily Mail reports that Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola and Nuno Espirito Santo have been named along with Pochettino as the nominees for the Manager of the Season award, and the winner should be our Argentine, irrespective of our Champions League run (which should not be counted since it is a domestic award).

He’s magic

Klopp and Guardiola might have slugged it out for the Premier League crown, breaking records aplenty but the Spaniard should not be in the frame for the award.

Guardiola could not match his points tally from last season despite spending huge on Riyad Mahrez in the summer. Klopp, for his part, also saw immense investment in the side, with four big players coming in the summer.

Nuno has done a great job with Wolves this season, but the Portuguese also spent in the summer to get some quality players in.

Spurs, on the other hand, spent nothing on transfers this season. The last senior player we signed was Lucas Moura, and we even sold Mousa Dembele in the winter window.

Tottenham were in the chase for the Premier League title until Jan/Feb, but then our squad was stretched to its limit and we lost ground on the top two.

Home calling for Spurs

Another factor that should be brought into play is that we have played almost the entirety of this season away from home.

We did that last season too and still made it to the top four. That remains a great achievement without strengthening the side, and Pochettino could have done even better had we signed some players in the summer.

Speaking of the summer, Tottenham had several players taking part in the semi-finals of the World Cup and that affected our preparations for the season.

Many of our stars came back tired, while some like Christian Eriksen returned with knocks.

The problems kept on mounting for us. Harry Kane suffered two serious injuries, almost every single senior player was out for some time due to an injury, and Son Heung-min participated in two international tournaments during the season.

Yet, Spurs made it to the top four, reached the semifinals of the Carabao Cup and are in the finals of the Champions League.

Injured/tired players, not the biggest squad in the Premier League, no investment in the side and a change of home all in one season.

Guardiola might have the trophies but he was expected to do that. Pochettino, on the other hand, could end the season with the Champions League crown.

The Manager of the Year award should be given based on the domestic performances, and reaching the top four with a squad decimated by injuries should count a lot more than winning trophies with one of the best teams in football.


Tottenham set to lose the race for Spanish star due to this reason



Spurs transfer news: Arsenal set to beat Tottenham in landing Dani Ceballos reports that Arsenal and Tottenham are interested in Real Madrid’s Dani Ceballos.

The report adds that AC Milan and Liverpool are also interested in the 22-year-old, however, AS (h/t claimed that Spurs had agreed on a loan deal to land the Spaniard.

However, the outlet adds that Ceballos will reject a move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and join the Gunners instead (h/t

The report adds that the interest from Unai Emery was the key to them landing Ceballos, and the Spaniard wants to play at the Emirates Stadium.

A blow for Tottenham’s summer plans

Ceballos would do a great job under Mauricio Pochettino, and it is interesting to note that Arsenal seem to be winning the race for the Spaniard.

The Gunners do not have Champions League football on their side, and the report adds that Ceballos wants to start games regularly next season.

The 22-year-old wasn’t picked regularly under Zinedine Zidane last season, and he might get more games under Emery than Pochettino. Spurs have only signed Tanguy Ndombele and Jack Clarke in the summer, and can do with another quality midfielder joining the side.

Eric Dier, Victor Wanyama and Harry Winks had their injury problems last season while Christian Eriksen is out of a contract at the end of next season.

Not Trippier – La Liga giants interested in another Tottenham star as well



Spurs transfer news: Atletico Madrid interested in Christian Eriksen

Atletico Madrid might be close to landing Kieran Trippier, however, he isn’t the only Tottenham star they are eyeing (h/t

The Evening Standard (h/t claims that Christian Eriksen is in the sights of the La Liga side as they search for a playmaker.

The report adds that Real Madrid are also interested in the 27-year-old Dane, who has just one year left on his current deal.

The midfielder had claimed he wanted to take up a new challenge after the Champions League final, however, he still is a Tottenham player.

Atletico have seen several players leave in the summer, with Rodri joining Manchester City. Juanfran also exited the club, and the biggest transfer has to be that of Antoine Griezmann’s.

The French attacker completed his move to Barcelona recently, and it will be interesting to see who Atletico can sign before the start of the season.

Will Eriksen fit into Atletico’s style?

The Dane is one of the most creative players in the Premier League and would do well at a top club.

Atletico aren’t known for their intricate style of play in the final third, and it is difficult to see how Eriksen would fit into Diego Simeone’s plans.

Staying at Tottenham would be a better decision for the Dane than joining Atletico, however, it will be interesting to see if Simeone’s team submits a quality offer for the Dane.

It would be great to keep Eriksen at the club and extend his deal, but the next best option is to sell him to a non-Premier League club.

Tottenham committed to signing relegated star they see as Danny Rose successor



Spurs transfer news: Tottenham committed to signing Ryan Sessegnon

The Telegraph reports that Tottenham are committed to signing Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon.

The 19-year-old is one of the brightest talents in the English game but saw his side suffer relegation last season.

Sessegnon was inconsistent at Fulham and ended up playing under three managers in the span of 12 months.

Danny Rose Tottenham

The English youngster is versatile enough to play as a leftwinger or as a left-back, and the report claims that Tottenham see the 19-year-old as a long-term successor of Danny Rose.

Tottenham’s Rose was one of our better performers in the previous campaign and started in the Champions League final against Liverpool.

However, the Englishman hinted he could leave in the summer after claiming that Tottenham sell off players who reach a certain age.

Fulham need to sell Sessegnon soon

The report adds that Fulham have to sell Sessegnon in the summer, with the English youngster having just one year left on his current deal.

Ryan Sessegnon

Sessegnon also prefers a move to Tottenham, according to the Telegraph, and hopefully, we can make him our third signing of the summer.

Tottenham could use someone of Sessegnon’s ability and the English youngster should grow under Mauricio Pochettino.

It will be interesting to see if Sessegnon plays as the left-back at Tottenham. His best performances came in the attacking positions, and we could use a quick and tricky winger in the team.

“Thanks for your commitment”, “Am broken” – Several Tottenham fans react as English star is set to leave for Spain



Spurs transfer news: Fans react to Atletico Madrid agreeing on a deal for Trippier

Sky Sports claims that Atletico Madrid have agreed on a €24m move for Kieran Trippier.

The English defender is set to be in Spain on Wednesday to complete a medical with the La Liga club, and the report claims that the deal could be finalised by the weekend.

The report adds that Tottenham were offered attacker Angel Correa in the deal, but Tottenham opted for a cash deal.

The English defender had an inconsistent campaign for Spurs last time around but no one can doubt his commitment to the cause. The right-back came off a wonderful World Cup campaign with the Three Lions, but could not carry that form into the club season.

Tottenham left with a minor problem

Spurs would only have Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters as the senior right-backs in the side should Trippier leave. That could be a problem given that Aurier’s previous season was littered with injuries.

Spurs could do with another right-back coming in and providing cover for the duo.

Many fans highlighted that Trippier just could not cut it at Tottenham while some were pleased that Spurs were getting a good deal for the Englishman. Some fans were supportive of Trippier’s decision to take up a new challenge, and here are a few reactions to the transfer:
