    Ed , I’m good , you do get your fair share along with Chelsea but you don’t have the press trying to sell your best players on a daily basis,the same press who are doing their best to get Poch a new job at Utd, Barca, RM etc now that is like a red rag to a bull for me.
    I am convinced Poch is playing a game, he’s not eloquent, but he not daft, I believe he is calling Levy out for his lack of investment after all it’s not his ,the players or the fans fault that our new ground is coming in roughly double what was originally stated, that is all down to a certain Mr Levy.

    But TBA, every single club has their players linked elsewhere. If you’re experiencing it more than usual with Spurs, it’s because your players and manager are performing well. Ironically, the Poch talk will probably calm down now after these quotes. I wish Mourinho did a good enough job for us so that he was being linked with other clubs. I’d much rather that than underperforming.

    What grinds my gears is this natural assumption by many that ALL players and ALL managers ALL want to play for YooUtd casue they’re supposedly the best thing since slice bread. Had it for years and it does twist my nipples for sure.

    Don’t understand it, they’re just some commercial enterprise speciallizing in selling noodles in South Korea based in London with a football team somewhere norff of Watforjd… “we’re the red devils”… ooOOOooOOooo so scary!

    No wonder Banjo has them #1 on his list of teams he loves to watch fail… 🙂

    Ed, pretty sure Mourinho was linked to PSG and Madrid whilst Utd manager. His agent even came out and released a press statement saying that he wasn’t interested in the other roles and would see his contract out at Utd.

    De Gea – linked to Madrid
    Young – Galatasaray
    Lindleof – Everton
    Rojo – Wolves
    Bailly – Arsenal
    Shaw – Newcastle
    Hererra – Barca, Bilboa, Arsenal
    Pogba – Barca, Juventus
    Martial – Arsenal, Juventus
    Sanchez – PSG
    Rashford – Madrid
    Mata – Arsenal, Barca
    Pereira – Arsenal
    etc, etc

    Happens at all clubs.

    And from the BBC today:

    Manchester United will not settle for a top-four finish this season and are “looking to win trophies”, says interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. So players might prefer to join clubs with ambitions to win things? Just a thought.

    Come on Alfie… do you genuinely think a manager says in public what he says in private? Any manager for that matter, not just Poncho. They’re just soundbites cyber chum!

    Wrong system the draw should be seeded noone is going to watch a Barnet vs Newport final, it will be a finincial disaster for one reason, sponsorship and other attractions will blow out the window. You have 2 of the top 4 clubs in the country facing each other and we still have 32 teams left, once again another badly managed competition.

    Totally disagree Moos, start rigging the system for the big dogs and that would be the final nail in the coffin for me. To be honest, if my team weren’t involved, I’m far more likely to watch Barnet vs Newport in the final than I am for example Liverpool vs Arsenal…. that’s the whole glory of the cup right there!

    Isn’t Poch just saying something controversial to deflect attention from his underperforming players? Something Mourinho often did and was lauded for. Judging by this forum it’s worked!

    Something Mourinho was lauded for?! Oh someone please direct me to the thread where everyone praised Mourinho 😊

    But Chucky, Spurs fans are exactly the same talking about players and managers from smaller clubs too. Spurs fans are quite happy talking about how they’ll get Howe in if Poch goes. How do you think Bournemouth fans feel about that. Don’t pretend you’re not part of the same food chain as us. We’re all part of it. As Alfie pointed out, we always have players linked elsewhere too.

    But the thing is Steady Eddy, I’m a football fan and we’re all hypocrites. Don’t give a monkeys about Bournemouth… it’s all about knocking those cockwomble teams above off their noddle sponsored perch! You should know that by now!

    As for Maureen, the majority of us thought he was a complete prat and perfect for YooUtd. Not going to say we praised him, but I reckon the majority of us were sad to see him leave! We loved what he was doing at YooUtd!! 🙂

    Ed, Mourinho had the media and fans praising his deflection techniques especially in his Chelsea days. They play bad, he makes the story about him not his players. Same as what Poch has done now.

    In a time long before Man Utd, Mourinho was, unbelievably I know, liked and respected by some. And he did ok by all accounts.

    Interestingly Poch said he couldn’t sleep after Chelsea knocked Spurs out of the League Cup which is inconsistent with his I don’t care aboutbthe Cups which fits perfectly into threeps theory.
