    Sure banjo, because if poch wanted to go to United he would say so in a pre match press conference for a PSG game πŸ˜€

    If he didn’t want to go he would have said its nonsense 100% though, he didn’t do that he instead referred to his contract which is 100% what he should do while under contract

    I really can’t understand all this fuss about Pochettino he was sacked by Spurs 2 years ago having won nothing in the 5 years that he was there failing every time to get Spurs over the line to win a trophy when Spurs got themselves in a position to do so and he flunked a one horse title race in France.

    Pochettino is not going to go back to Spurs again if he’s got an sense after Levy cut him adrift without any new player purchases and Spurs have a far more successful Manager in Conte now anyway despite Conte’s history of throwing his toys out of the pram if he doesn’t get his own way.

    As they said on Talksport yesterday Pochettino is not yet an elite Manager due to his lack of success but he’s probably the best United are going to get/the best available and he’s likely to be an improvement on Ole if United do manage to get him..

    Nepolean, I don’t know why you and Puppyov are suggesting I’m against the idea. I’ve already given my blessing, pages and ages ago, and have no problem with him experimenting with some new ideas up Norff before he comes home.

    That’s pretty much it Nine. Let’s see what happens. Will be cautiously optimistic if he comes in but I won’t lose any sleep if he doesn’t. I just hope for his sake he gets it to fulfil his dream

    “Nepolean, I don’t know why you and Puppy are suggesting I’m against the idea.”

    Probably because you’ve been behaving like a love struck teenager who has just been dumped by their first girlfriend Banjo.πŸ˜‚

    Valverde seems to be a potential for interim. Maybe he might actually be a decent choice, as he didnt seem to be a good match for Barca at the time. Perhaps the PL might suit him better (and not having a horrible, toxic fanbase etc).

    Of course, it must be horrible to hear that Woodward is going to stick around, in order to F up Utd for a few more years to come, as he walks off into the sunset.

    Definitely sounds like you don’t like him. In that paragraph above, in the same sentence you say that Pochettino fails to get them over the line but Spurs as a team gets them to the brink of winning. So failure is an individual failure whereas winning is a team win. Harsh!

    Ole being sacked is not good news for Chelsea as any managerial change whether temporary or permanent or good or bad tends to galvanize teams for a while. Plus Chelsea have quite a few injuries so anything can happen Sunday.

    What do you mean PSG rejected the “approach”? I thought somebody’s mate Dave heard it from his taxi driver while coming back from the pub having spend all night drinking with the taxi drives mate who happens to be a milkman (unconfirmed reports this all happened at the Duck & Dog in Epping!) that Poncho, a man with absolutely no connections to YopoUtd “dreams” of managing them, was so depserate to go there it was all sign, sealed and delviered?

    A lot of talk about Poch not winning anything but is winning the only thing that counts now? Should the likes of Pellegrini and di Matteo be considered because they have won something?

    To me the style is more important, the philosophy, the end goal. When Klopp took over LFC we were still a bit of a mess but you could see what he was trying to do and given time he did it. As a rival supporter I wanted Ole to keep his job because after the 3 years or whatever he was there I still had no idea what kind of style Utd wanted to play.

    Poch has a style, he had his Spurs team working together towards it. He may have been a little too short in quality within the squad to take it to the next step by winning something but he did well with what he had and played some very good football.

    Things aren’t going too well at PSG but that is a team with too many individuals working for themselves. I don’t think Klopp or Pep would do much better with that lot of primadonnas. Individual brilliance will always win you matches but rarely win you trophies (unless prime Maradone!).

    I worry as a rival fan that Poch could impose his style successfully at Utd and with the better quality than he had at Spurs actually win things. Utd needs a lot of work to make them play as a team again but they have quality there already. Although they don’t have the primadonna issue as bad as PSG I think only one of Ronaldo, Fernandes or Pogba can play at once or there’s too much for the others to carry.

    Nothing to do with not liking Pochettino Foxy I actually do quite like him but there’s been a ridiculous overreaction to the chances of Pochettino managing United from some areas on here and those are the facts and like it or not all Managers are judged on what their teams achieve if that wasn’t the case Ole would still be in a job.

    As I suggested yesterday Pochettino is the best option for United if they can get him although I don’t think United fans are 100% convinced that he’s the perfect United appointment which is probably reflected in the Ed’s comment to my post “That’s pretty much it Nine. Let’s see what happens. Will be cautiously optimistic if he comes in but I won’t lose any sleep if he doesn’t. I just hope for his sake he gets it to fulfil his dream.”

    I agree with threeps comment above “I worry as a rival fan that Poch could impose his style successfully at Utd and with the better quality than he had at Spurs actually win things.” And I think with the kind of backing Poch would get from United in the transfer market which he didn’t get at Spurs there would be every chance of United winning trophies again.

    “Reported on talksport that PSG rejected approach from United within last 24 hours.”

    Lucky reports in the media today suggest that this faltered because Zidane didn’t want to join PSG mid season?

    Who knows?

    But if Poch to United is going to happen it looks more likely that it will be in the Summer now when United would also have the back up of ten Hag etc if the move for Poch falters.

    Surprised Poncho doesn’t just resign, what with it being his dream job and ultimate fantasy and everything… πŸ™‚

    Same goes for Kane Chucky. Clearly wanted to get out of Spurs. Why didn’t he just resign? Free Kane and Poch! Let them fulfil their dreams.

    You’re doing an awful job of pretending this Poch stuff doesn’t bother you Chucky 🀣

    Banjo, PSG have rejected it, not poch, he has been asked about this repeatedly the last few days but not once put the rumours to bed by saying “I don’t want to become the United manager”

    My original thought that it could happen mid-season was based on the reports Zidane would be willing to join PSG, if that’s not the case united and poch will have to wait but you are deluding yourself up you think poch doesn’t want it imo.

    Poncho, a man with absolutely no connections to YooUtd β€œdreams” of managing them, was so depserate to go there it was all sign, sealed and delviered?

    https://www.itv.com/news/update/2016-05-13/meeting-ex-man-united-boss-a-dream-pochettino/

    From the article:

    For me, it was a dream come true. (Meeting Ferguson)

    When I was young, when I started my career as a manager, he was always my inspiration, my reference and when you can share two hours with a person who, for me, was the greatest manager in the world, the history of football, only you can enjoy.

    It was difficult because I wanted to stop time but it was impossible. It was fantastic.

    I mean there’s “no connection to Man Utd” and there’s that!
