Expectations too high maybe?

There was a lot of expectation around the Lane today amid a game that was certainly going to be the first real test of the Pochettino era. Some of that expectation was probably far too high given that we have only really played some pretty poor teams thus far.

In those five games a number of players that we probably won’t see a lot of have had some time on the pitch (indeed Falque has departed for Genoa for example) and some of our bigger names haven’t featured at all. We’ve seen the same old defensive slip ups at times, the same glaring sitters missed, 16…
