Crypty old pal... I smiled when I saw this... because I also want what it used to represent...
But even if you stick a solitaire diamond ring into the top of a straming plie of shit... the smell doesn't change...
Levy doesn't care about Poch or Poch's legacy... if anything he could fuck him even harder than he did before just to show how much he is the saviour we all need and not Sir Pochetinhio of Tottenham...
Look, I want to dream about it being fucking brilliant again... because it was just that... the best memories I have ever had as a Spurs supporter...
But it's not the same, it's a different era. An era of mega cash, mega deals, mega wages, mega players... and while on paper we are a mega club... we don't behave like one.
Poch would be mad to tarnish his reputation going back to the bitch that wrung him out and fucked his fat uncle just because he asked for a little sugar...
I will say it right fucking now... IF it happens, Levy will eventually fuck him, just like he has fucked everyone else in pursuit if his own interestes...
Put all this in a PowerPoint and you could interview for Paratici’s job…If anything, the last three managers have proven what Levy should have known before he sacked Pochettino. The squad was cooked so it's not as if the results directly leading to Pochettino's sacking were as a result of him losing the players or the ability to manage.
I desperately want Pochettino back but ironically it must be on the understanding that Levy invests in youth. And not youth as in "cheap" but kids who are very good, can slot right in and grow under Pochettino, even if they cost a bit more. I don't think massive investment in proven players already the wrong side of 25 is the way forward now. It's rebuild time and with the right support, and ongoing support Pochettino is the guy. Players like Sessengon, Bissouma, Spence, Udogie, Emerson, Porro, Skipp, Romero, Bentancur and Kulusevski for a very good core of young talent with upside. Sessegnon for example I can see absolutely thriving under Pochettino.
If we can convince Kane to stay and put games into these younger players then I can see it working. Even Richarlison could do well in that environment. Personally I would be happy to move Son, Hjojberg, Dier, Davies, Moura, Perisic, Lloris and Sanchez on and replace them with young, hungry and talented kids who Pochettino will put his faith in. We then cop a year of up and down results without expectation and hope that we have enough of these younger guys evolving into truly elite players to build a core. And then we top up with similar every season according to need.
Poch is probably the only realistic manager we could appoint that doesn't see Son and Kane hand in transfer requests in the summer.
Pretty fucked that in 2023 he gets to start the rebuild he spoke about in mid 2019. In the meantime we've gone through 3 full time managers, signed a heap of players like Hojberg, Richarlison, Bissouma, Emerson Royal, Perisic etc. for the different managers setups. So Poch joins probably with the squad more disjointed than when he left. Needs to be a 5-year contract.
With a new director of football who can actually spot new talent and not just going back to the well with his Juve scout reports. Go to the Bundesliga, La Liga and Ligue 1 and sign players 18-24 years of age who are trustable to play now but upside to be great, but also looking outside the big 4 leagues for young talent who have upside to be our next world-class level players.
Even in the Poch days I wouldn't say we've nailed the above. Sure we signed Son and Dele. But the rest were either at the club already (Lloris, Eriksen, Dembele, Vertonghen) alongside failures (Soldado, Capoue, etc) or were relatively proven in the league and bargains (Toby, Wanyama)
And as good as it was getting those 2 it included a dodgy as fuck deal to help Juventus not pay Boca extra money on Bentancur. Can't believe he is still in a job. Bring back the black box!Well called out.
The Paratici thing is a myth. Outside of the two guns he brought from Juventus, what is his contribution? The guy hired Nuno FFS.
The crowd was singing his name tonight. That will be enough to nudge Conte out the door and sends a massive message to Daniel Levy who desperately needs to win the supporter base back.
I'd be prepared to bet money that Pochettino will be Spurs manager before the end of the week.
Agreed. The reality is that just about every “proven” manager these days has only proven they can win trophies when they have better players than almost everyone else. Which is exactly what Poch did at PSG.So winning the French league is nothing?
He’s a top manager. The best we have had in decades.
If it's between a French league title, a Scottish & Japanese league title (Postecoglou),a Ukranian league title (De Zerbi) & the Championship (Silva)... I'm not sure that arguement stacks up.Because, as a manager, he hasn't won anything of note anywhere. (I rate all French cups as mickey mouse cups)

And lets not pretend the high profile option in Enrique is remotely a good idea. The bloke had Iniesta, Pique & Busquets. We have Hojberg, Dier & Bissouma. He won't be able to get the football he likes to play with our group.
