first_imgWHEN Mauricio Pochettino said Tottenham’s new stadium would take them to another level most people assumed he meant up!But things have not gone as planned and the North Londoners’ first full season in their £1billion 62,000-seater home has so far been a disaster.2 Mauricio Pochettino has seen his Spurs side start this season disastrously, with two wins from eight gamesCredit: ReutersPoch’s men have won just two of their opening eight Prem games and suffered an embarrassing Carabao Cup KO at League Two Colchester on Tuesday.It means there are more grounds for concern than a stadium to be proud of in N17 right now.The expected bounce from their new stadium, Champions League final appearance and squad additions has deflated, with cracks appearing in displays and relationships.Pochettino said: “The circumstances have changed. It doesn’t mean more names make a better team, it doesn’t follow that you have a £1billion stadium you will win more games.“It’s a mix of a lot of things that you need.”Tottenham’s first signings for 18 months saw the arrival of France midfielder Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon for a club-record £65million, Fulham’s England Under-21 star Ryan Sessegnon for £25m, Leeds teen prospect Jack Clarke at £10m and Real Betis playmaker Giovani Lo Celso on a season loan.But all the positivity has seemingly evaporated due to a negativity that has been simmering under the surface for months.2Ironically, Tottenham were playing better and seemed to have more togetherness when they were “homeless” at Wembley and MK Dons.They certainly have failed to show the spirit that took them to Madrid.Poch admits things have not been the same since their 2-0 defeat by Liverpool back in June.Ahead of today’s visit of Southampton, he added: “Last season no one believed in us.“We started the Champions League leading the game against Inter Milan and losing in the last few minutes, if you remember, when I was talking about the cows.“We didn’t sign anyone for the first time in the club’s history and everything was a disaster. In the end we got to the Champions League final.ACCA WITH LADBROKES Pick up a whole load of acca features to help you land the big one“When you play in the final of the Champions League, no one is the same afterwards because the perception and expectation is different.“All that creates a new circumstance for the club which is different again and we need to try and find solution like last season.“We need to find the balance for us in between all these things but I am convinced we are going to perform and we are going to fine.”“This season we were a little bit active in the transfer market. We signed present but future players who need time and we have had bad luck with players who got injured.Latest Tottenham newsHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerPochettino hosts his ex-club Saints, admitting: “I feel special things for them.“They were my first club in England.
