Many Spurs supporters didn’t want their team to defeat City and give Arsenal a title boost.

In the lead-up to Tottenham’s loss to Manchester City, Ange Postecoglou expressed his dissatisfaction with the team’s mindset, criticizing the “really fragile” foundations.

In order to maintain their chances of finishing in the top four and qualifying for the Champions League, Spurs needed to win their penultimate game of the season. However, many supporters did not want their team to win because they were worried about the implications for their team’s chances of winning the Premier League title.

Arsenal would have been in control going into the final day of the season and in a prime position to snap a 20-year title drought had City given up any points.

In the end, Pep Guardiola’s team won 2-0 thanks to two goals from Erling Haaland. They now lead the standings by two points and know that a victory against West Ham on Sunday will guarantee the trophy stays in Manchester for a record-breaking fourth season.

Though many Spurs supporters were happy with the outcome, Postecoglou expressed his annoyance when questioned about whether he was certain that the team was laying the groundwork for victory despite a generally strong performance.

The Spurs manager responded, “No, I think the last 48 hours have revealed to me the foundations are fairly fragile.” “I feel that way.

I’ve learned quite a bit during the past 48 hours. That’s okay; it simply means that I have to start over with a few items. Inside and outside [the club]. It has been a thought-provoking activity.

“I probably misinterpreted the situation in terms of what I believe is crucial in our quest to become a winning team,” he continued. However, that’s okay; that’s why I’m here.

Postecoglou responded to shouts directed at Arsenal throughout the game, stating that he was “just not interested.” The mood grew more laid back as Spurs trailed and eventually gave up a second goal, and he attributed this to the rivalry with Arsenal in North London. Perhaps I’m out of step, but I don’t give a damn. At this football team, I want to succeed and win.
