I am generally OK with what he said. It is the honest truth. He is putting pressure on Levy while he has a little bit of leverage. It might turn out to be a brilliant play. Of course it could blow up, but I don't expect that to happen.

What I did find weird was the whole Trippier/Kane/Lloris/Poch halftime at Ajax thingy. He basically flat out said that what Trippier said about Kane was BS. First, it's odd that it would happen, and second, it's odd that he would feel the need to publicly state it. Hopefully it is more nothing.
I reckon Poch knows he could leave and almost any club would want him right now. Imagine what the bloke could do with a budget - buy cups and titles like Pep has done at City. PSG would pay huge for him I reckon.

I'm not sure. Poch has made a name for himself by operating on a budget, developing young players,and instilling an ethic of hard work, A large part of that is due to his personality. I wouldn't assume that would play well with galactico types that are attracted to the riches at clubs like PSG, etc.

Conspiracy theory alert...

I’m starting to develop this awful idea that Woodward/Fergie have been tapping up Poch, telling him that we made a gigantic size balls up in appointing Solksjaer full time and that he should take a sabbatical and we’ll have you in the Utd hot seat by Christmas!!🙊

Man, would they really eat four years of his deal? That is just nuts. You are probably right though. I think they would. But I think Poch will stay. The stadium and the team are his. Nowhere else will he get that. Of course I could be being naive but I'm an optimist.

I cannot see Poch leaving us straight for another english team,I just dont.Except commercial revenue and stadium size,we are a bigger club now.Bold statement I know but on the pitch we are by far the better club ATM,and have been since Moyse pretty much bar one fluke Jose finish we have been above&beyond them..Poor club set up from the top and poor squad laced with toxic over paid divas like pogba and sanchez.Rashford and martial need help which poch could do,but smalling,jones,young,and the like do me a favour currently they are worse than arsenal with mustafi,iwobi,monreal and co.Its a poison chalice from the glazers down to Jones,yes they have money but we are talking 100s of millions to even fight for 3rd&4th in their case.

PSG are the danger if Levy doesn't play ball........and maybe Madrid in 2020. But this is all smoke and mirrors anyway. Poch has made Spurs his club in a Fergie style, lets hope it all works out the same way. Fergie won his first trophy after 5 years didn't he??

Here's another question - how do we keep everyone fit and motivated for three weeks? I'd have let them go on holiday for a week, beast them for a week when they got back then light fun training for 4-5 days?

You never know what you will get when a manager is used to operating on a budget. He does seem to have a knack for developing young talent. However, I think he can also maximize established talent as long as they're willing to listen.

David Moyes actually did really well on a budget with Everton, which is a good reason why he got that Manchester United position. That didn't work out well at all. Not saying Poch is the same as Moyes, but the point is that it could happen. Obviously I hope he stays a bit. It's hard to find managers that stay awhile in this day and age whether they get let go or leave on their own.

What the fuck was this all about?? First I've heard of it.

From BBC Sport

Mauricio Pochettino has avoided a touchline ban for Tottenham's Champions League final against Liverpool.

The Spurs manager has been given a one-match ban linked to the delayed start of the semi-final first leg with Ajax , but his suspension has been deferred for a probation period of one year.

Spurs have also been fined 10,000 euros (£8,758) for the incident.

The club have also been fined 5,000 euros for a pitch invasion in their quarter-final with Manchester City.

Tottenham qualified for their first Champions League final after a stunning second-leg comeback against Ajax in Amsterdam.

Lucas Moura scored a second-half hat-trick as Spurs overturned a three-goal deficit to progress on away goals and set up a meeting with Liverpool in Madrid on 1 June.

Meanwhile, among fines for other clubs, Porto have been fined 42,000 euros for blocking stairways, setting off fireworks and the late kick-off in their Champions League quarter-final second leg with Liverpool.

Porto head coach Sergio Conceicao is also banned for one Uefa competition match for being responsible for a late kick-off.

Pep should be banned for a premature celebration.
I'm not sure why everyone thinks he's so great, he's had unlimited funds at Bayern and no-one to beat, and at City relatively speaking with the huge amount of money he's spent he's struggled especially in the Champions League. I think he's good but no more than that, very arrogant and over-rated. Managers like Poch have achieved relatively more I think. I mean look how much cash has been splashed on players like Mahrez, Sane, Stones, and they can't get in the first team, plus ridiculous wages. If he doesnt at least win the league every year he's failing in my book. Congrats to Wolves and Watford btw.

Humble ish from Pep - well said.

Manchester City will ultimately be judged on how they fare in the Champions League despite their historic treble, says manager Pep Guardiola.

The City boss is aware critics will point to failure in Europe whatever other success he achieves at the club. A 6-0 win over Watford in Saturday's FA Cup final followed Premier League and Carabao Cup triumphs this season. "I said before that I know we will be judged at the end on whether we win the Champions League," said Guardiola.

"I know unless we do that it will not be enough. "This comes with me. I know that. I arrive in Barcelona, we were lucky we won it two times in four years and the people expect I am something special that we have to win the Champions League and it's still true.

"In this club, the points record and the domestic competitions is incredible, but the Champions League we don't win quite often compared to the other ones because the teams are so good, the competition is so demanding but we want to win it."

As a footnote, City's bench on Saturday cost in excess of £200m, the entire Watford team cost £49m.

Very weird bit about Real not allowing us to sleep at their training facility. Poch claims he asked Perez directly if they could sleep at the facilities and Perez said something along the lines of "when you manage Real you can sleep there." Of course Real denied this but it is probably true. First, Poch had to know that making this public would create waves. Seems an odd thing to let slip at such a crucial time. Also, Zidane has to be pissed that Perez is taking directly with Poch and then lying about it. Perhaps a good headbutt is in order.

I feel that once again it is unnecessary comments before a big game. On one hand, I do not care if it takes pressure off the team and we win. On the other, I am never as entirely certain as others that what he says or does or jokes about with the media is in the long-term best interest of the club or the fans, although it is a possibility. I am kind of tuning out at this point as I have turned into Stan.

Anyone remember Fergusson making a fucking twat of himself every time Utd played like cunts. Every time he'd blame the pitch, a referee, the weather the FA, opposition players even fans

Anyone remember Wenger failing to see anything that happened on the pitch that could ever have been construed as potentially negative towards his players? The fucking blindest man on the fucking planet when his players were bullying fuck out of referees and opposition players but saw clear as a bell, in the pissing down snow, from 100 yards away when it was a clear stone wall penalty for his side.

I think some of this is distracting from any attention or speculation on the players. They're being left alone and settled and people ain't talking about spurs tactics, players or anything else about the biggest game of our recent history.

Job done I'd say.
