Mauricio Pochettino seems pretty unhappy in general right now.
Tottenham picked up just two points from their final four games of the season to allow Arsenal to overtake them into second place, and the Spurs boss was particularly furious with his players after they capitulated in the 5-1 defeat to Newcastle on the final day of the season.
That result must partly be attributed to the absence of two of their key men, Mousa Dembele and Dele Alli, both of whom were banned for violent conduct.

Alli served a three-game ban, now completed, for punching West Brom's Claudio Yacob, while Dembele still has four matches to miss next season for eye-gouging Chelsea's Diego Costa.
And according to The Times, Pochettino is furious with the Tottenham board for simply accepting the bans, rather than contesting them.

Had the board chosen to contest the FA's decisions, in reality, it is unlikely that either would have been overturned, but they will never know what could have been had they had at least one of two of their most important players available.
Dembele has been the Lilywhites' unsung hero this season, and without him, the midfield lacked composure and solidity. Without Alli, they also struggled to create.
Lack of support
He has perceived a lack of support from chairman Daniel Levy over the issue. Spurs have not won a game since the pair's suspensions.
In other areas, it looks like the Argentine manager is being backed by the board. He has just been handed a lucrative extension on his current contract, which will now keep him at the club until 2021.
He is also reportedly being given £60million to spend on boosting his squad this summer, with Marseille striker Michy Batshuayi a likely target.
But Levy rarely enjoys an entirely smooth relationship with his managers, and it is likely Pochettino will ask for more support if a similar situation arises in the future.
Undoubtedly, Pochettino must also blame the players themselves, who have been slammed by fans for letting the team down. What is particularly frustrating is that neither incident came on the ball and Tottenham must ensure they do not let their frustration get the better of them if they are to improve next season.
Should Tottenham have contested Dembele and Alli's bans? Have your say in the comments.
