I know I always have a good relationship with you but my feeling is not the best feeling.
The Wembley pitch took another battering in Sunday's Eagles-Jaguars NFL match as the ground staff attempt to improve its condition ahead of Monday night's clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City.
"These are important. I don't know what's happened in the past but it's true that the strong teams are making a lot of points, they are not dropping points easily". "We deserved more in that game".
Pochettino, who has in the past been linked with the Real Madrid job even though he is yet to win silverware, said his depressed mood dated back to events in the summer.
"That's why it is so important to take those points".
Taking over relegation-threatened Espanyol on the other side of town in January 2009, Pochettino's first game in charge was a daunting Copa del Rey quarter-final against Guardiola's Barca.
"That's why maybe the games against the contenders are becoming so important".
"We saw it at West Ham last week - we saw it at Cardiff a couple of weeks ago and they've paid for that inability to do that in Europe, which looks like a Champions League exit now. What I think is Mr Levy is not an easy guy to negotiate with".
"When they [players] are fit, you have full focus on what you have to do", he said.

Southampton is then next at home - the same points [are up for grabs, as against Spurs].
The central midfielder was named as Tottenham's best first-year academy scholar by the Guardian this month, and is highly-regarded in north London.
Pep Guardiola believes the games between the top sides will determine who wins this season's Premier League title. Pochettino's five-year contract signed in the summer was a firm commitment as Spurs prepared to move into the newly refurbished White Hart Lane, but the delayed opening until the new year coupled with a lack of investment in the summer transfer window has not helped raise the manager's spirits. "That is going to happen in your stadium".
Spurs owner Joe Lewis - who spends most of his time on his €130m yacht in the Bahamas - could invest a chance of his €4billion fortune into Tottenham to either finance the stadium project or player investment and change the club's image overnight, but he has never shown an inclination to get involved in the club during his 17 years as its reclusive owner.
Mauricio Pochettino says he is enduring his "worst feeling" as Tottenham boss this season, despite guiding them to their best Premier League start.
Former Ireland worldwide Gary Breen joined Off the Ball on Saturday to cast his eye over this weekend's Premier League action.
