Tottenham were on the wrong side of an embarrassing upset on Tuesday night and one Spurs fan has finally lost his patience with Mauricio Pochettino.
A lacklustre Spurs side were defeated by Colchester on penalties after drawing 0-0 in regulation time, with Christian Eriksen and Lucas Moura both missing from the spot during the shootout to condemn Tottenham to ANOTHER away loss.
The north Londoners’ form over the past year has been well below the expected level, and just four wins from 17 away matches suggests there are real problems.
Pochettino admitted before the European transfer window closed that his squad was being disrupted by speculation, but Spurs have not stopped struggling since then despite their squad finally being settled.
There is allegedly discontent behind the scenes and the pressure is starting to truly fall on Pochettino.
And one fan joined talkSPORT on Wednesday morning to make his feelings about Spurs and Pochettino clear.
During the must-listen rant, the supporter even called for Jose Mourinho to be hired as manager as he will guarantee Tottenham finally win a trophy.
“I don’t know where to start,” the fan told the Alan Brazil Sport Breakfast. “I’ve only had two hours sleep before starting work this morning…
“I looked at it and thought gutless, spineless and no ideas.
“Personally I think Poch has had his time now… he’s taken us so far.
“I’d actually bring in Mourinho. I know he’s had a bad spell at Man United but he is a serial winner and we need a trophy.

“We’ll probably beat Southampton on Saturday but that will just be papering over the cracks I think.
“How far can he take us now, since we’ve got the new stadium we’ve gone backwards!”
Given Tottenham’s woes on their travels, they will be delighted four of their next five matches are to be played at home.
They host Southampton on Saturday before welcoming Bayern Munich in the Champions League next Tuesday. Then a trip to Brighton that weekend precedes the visit of Watford to White Hart Lane on October 19, with Red Star Belgrade also heading to north London three days later.
