Last season I published some tables detailing the results of the first ‘n’ games of Tim Sherwood, comparing his achievements to the other full time Levy appointed full time Spurs managers. Now it is time to run Pochettino’s stats through the sausage grinder and see how he is doing. I don’t think I will be bothered really until Mauricio has a full season under his belt and his ‘philosophy’ sinks into the player’s minds. I am very happy with the way we are progressing this season – at the time of writing this we are 6th in the Premiership and still in contention for the League Cup and the Europa League.
I will start with the first 10 games, then I’ll update the stats every 5 games or so. The figures are a comparison of the first ‘n’ Premier League games under each of the Tottenham Hotspur managers. I don’t publish these figures as a stick to beat any of these managers, they all had their good points and most of them should in my opinion have been given more time by Daniel Levy, I hope that Pochettino stays on as manager for at least 2 complete seasons before Levy feels that urge to swing his axe again.
Mauricio’s first 10 games
OK, so that’s not very good is it? Only 1 point more than Santini and more losses than any of the other Levy-men.
|Andre Villas Boas||10||5||2||3||17||14||3||17|
Mauricio’s first 15 games
Poor old MoPo is till in last place on points, but it’s early days and the points gap is getting closer. Santini has been dropped from the list because he never made it to 15 Premier League games.
|Andre Villas Boas||15||8||2||5||28||23||5||26|
Mauricio’s first 20 games
Things are really starting to look up now! Pochettino has overtaken Martin Jol, Juanda Ramos and Harry Redknapp to move into 3rd place.
|Andre Villas Boas||20||11||3||6||36||26||10||36|
Mauricio’s first 22 games
MoPo is holding onto 3rd place, just 2 points behind Andre Villas Boas and 5 points behind Tim Sherwood. How’s he doing these days? I think he took a bit of an unfair shafting.
|Andre Villas Boas||22||12||4||6||39||27||12||40|
Mauricio’s first 28 games ( Current at 10th March 2015 )
I’ve been a bit busy so I missed games 23-27, but now here are the latest up to date figures for the Poch’s first 28 games. Tim drops out of the list because he only made it up to 22 PL games before Mr Levy cruelly chopped his bonce off.
