Tottenham Hotspur earned what will be seen as a decent point away to Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League on Tuesday night, but in reality they were lucky to come away with it as the home side dominated the game and had a number of chances to get the crucial goal.
It never did come, but Spurs offered little in reply as they faded badly in the second half, and this point was passionately made by Graeme Souness in the TV3 studio as he claimed the Spurs players were being overworked.
Souness was having none of Tommy Martin's attempts to suggest that it was only October, as the former Liverpool midfielder clearly didn't like what he had heard about Pochettino's training methods at the London club.
He was pretty heated there.
But does he have a point? Much is made about how hard Poch works his players, and while it no doubt put them in a great position to win the league last season, did it eventually cost them?
They certainly didn't look up to it in Leverkusen, a leggy performance after being tested away to West Brom last weekend. While Pochettino is certainly not going to change his methods because of what Souness has said on TV3, it's an interesting argument nonetheless.
