Commentary: Vincent Janssen isn’t good enough and I was right

New, comments

Why are you booing me? I’m right.

My OPINION piece on Tuesday sparked outrage in the comments. It was rank and wild speculation, not analysis, like I haven’t been reading every Alasdair Gold transcription of a Pochettino press conference and trawling ITK on Spurs Community from grown men with ridiculous names. I apparently left out the part where Poche took over recruitment after 2015 even though the premise of the piece was that Pochettino was exerting too much control on transfers. Worst, I had committed the sin of clickbait in expressing disappointment that Poche was burned by bad scouting and analysis leading to nothing rather than good scouting and analysis.

Unrelatedly, I asked our beat journalists why Janssen was banished beyond even N’Koudou, in a way that seemed unfair from Poche. In return, I got something even better:

There. See. Poche got burned on Janssen and GKN among others, and that’s why he won’t let Levy sign people. And I was right.
