The first day of October 2019 was a terrible night for Tottenham. The team was devastated by 7 goals by the Panzers of Bayern Munich. After the 2-7 defeat, everyone has started to question the real reason behind the Spurs’ subpar start to the season. Having reached the finals in Champions League last season, the expectations were high for the Spurs.
In the very first match of Group B against Olympiacos, they left the pitch with a draw. After this game, they lost 1-2 against Leicester and had a draw with Colchester on the road. They ended this winless streak in the Premier League against Southampton but not everything went smoothly. In the next rounds, everyone is expecting a return to winning ways from Tottenham.

Before the match against Bayern, rumors were spread that Vertonghen has been caught sleeping with Eriksen’s wife. According to reports, Harry Kane was one of the firsts to learn about this betrayal. He flipped out and went to Vertonghen’s house and gave him a black eye. It has been claimed that nobody was speaking in the dressing room before the game. It is still not known whether Eriksen has confronted Vertonghen yet. Of course, these are rumors spread out on social media but the club hasn’t refused it yet. Although we may not learn the truth behind these rumors, both Vertonghen’s and Eriksen’s performances have certainly hit the rock bottom.
Another rumor is that players are not happy with the tactical systems of Pochettino. Senior players have been claimed to be very disappointed with the strategies of their head coach, who is also rumored to leave the for Real Madrid in the next season. We cannot only blame Pochettino. Yet, it is true that he has made some questionable decisions as well. He started with Dele Alli instead of Eriksen in the first two Champions League games. Of course, the reason for Pochettino’s decision can be the fact that Eriksen might be a little bit demoralized after learning about the betrayal.
The Statements of the Players after the game
The man at the headlines was Vertonghen unsurprisingly. He stated that he might not sleep after this blow-out as he was embarrassed for being a part of this. Moussa Sissoko pointed out the problems with the tactical systems of Pochettino by saying that “We get tired too quickly physically when we play with a diamond midfield”. He continued “We gave up too quickly tonight.” and took the blame for the disaster. Pochettino, on the other hand, tried to calm the situation down. He stated “We know how we feel, it’s very disappointing, so the feelings are not so good. We are not going to fix anything by shouting. We must stay calm.” and avoided finger-pointing anyone.
All in all, besides all the drama, Tottenham has still many games and they have plenty of opportunities. We cannot predict if the relationship of the players will turn back to normal but we are sure that they will start playing better on the pitch.
