    Hey, Puppy, want to copypaste today’s Mail piece about Poncho staying? It’s actually got quotes in it from the man himself, rather than those speculative pieces you seem to find… πŸ™‚

    Sometimes these things can work in your favour and I think the current Spurs squad may have been in need of a reboot and that’s what it looks like will happen at least in the Summer for sure.

    The size of the compensation either way makes things very tricky for Pochettino to move on but this is football and you can never say never the problem for Spurs if that’s what happens is whose available to replace him?

    I can’t see Gareth Southgate leaving England at this point and his record as a Club Manager is questionable at best, Allegri would be a very good capture but I think there will be lots of competition for him this Summer from a number of big Clubs, Eddie Howe is an obvious and probably a good choice but it would be a big step up for him and he’s very comfortable in his own little bubble down at Bournemouth, Brendan Rodgers would be a good choice it would cost Spurs in terms of compensation but he’s very ambitious and if approached by Spurs I think he might come.

    Despite what you say re Mourinho Chucky I wouldn’t write him out of the equation if Poch was to go he’s available, he’s based in London has won everything there is to win multiple times knows the PL inside out and Levy tried to get him previously. Although I can understand your reluctance.

    However I think Poch is saying the right things today in saying he wants to stay at Spurs and find a way of how to be successful and I think that would be the best outcome for all.

    Chucky, keep up “Mauricio Pochettino has sparked fears among the first team in North London that he wants out of the club, while the Tottenham Hotspur boss has left some uneasy with his tactical calls this season, according to the Daily Mail.”

    Now read my post above.😊

    But what’s a speculative piece written by people who sole purpose is to cause controversy and sell newspapers, and which pieces actually contain quotes?? I tend to “believe” the ones with the quotes in personally, rather than what a desk-jockey wrote down the pub, drinking his expenses and facing a deadline… πŸ™‚

    Anyway, do you really want to keep admitting you read the Mail?? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Chucky, come on mate get real only a blind and deaf man would suggest that everything in the garden is rosy with Poch at Spurs and this is all made up conjecture.

    Poch has cut a disconsolate disgruntled figure for months now with all sorts of strange comments coming from him nobody is making up anything in relation to that it’s been there for all to see in so many of his press conferences.

    My personal view as I’ve already expressed is that that Poch remaining in position is to the benefit of both him and Spurs.

    But any controversy swirling around Poch and Spurs relationship currently is very much all of Poch’s making and no one else’s!!!!

    In respect of the Daily Mail you suggested I should copypaste today’s Mail piece about Poncho staying? It’s actually got quotes in it from the man himself, rather than those speculative pieces you seem to find… πŸ™‚ I merely pointed out to you that the source of the report in my previous post was the Daily Mail.

    Puppy, cyber chum, dude, any articles that feature the phrases “sources say” and “reports suggest”, regardless of what club is involved, are just fish wrappings… quotes from actual real-life persons tend to get taking a little bit more seriously!! The Daily Mail doesn’t have a clue, and I’m willing to bet the biggest bag of Monster Munch you’ve ever seen in your life these “sources” and “reports” you keep alluding too are basically other reports and other sources they’ve found on the interweb anyway… it’s all Chinese Whispers… πŸ™‚

    This is a snippet from today’s press conference with Poch.

    Was there any point after the game where you thought about your future?

    In five and a half years, in every single press conference we’re talking about my future. I hope that we’re still talking, it means I’m going to spend five more years here at least.

    I understand that anything could happen with Poch, as is possible for every football manager, but I am convinced he will be at Spurs for the foreseeable future and if he is that’s good news for me.

    Chucky, with the greatest respect if the Daily Mail doesn’t have a clue why are you quoting it to me?😊

    I know there were no quotes but there are plenty of quotes out there from Poch himself that suggest he’s not been a happy bunny at Spurs for a while and he’s been saying some pretty odd stuff to the media and even Spurs fans agree on that and have questioned his commitment so let’s not pretend it’s all made up paper talk.

    And while footballers are often not the smartest cookie in the cookie jar there’s a very good chance the Spurs players would have picked up on Poch’s moods and utterances to the media and discussed what’s been going on with Poch between themsellves if you don’t want to believe that that’s up to you.

    There’s was lots of speculation about Sarri last season you shouldn’t get all precious about these things and losing 2-7 at home in the CL tends to add to that speculation.

    Putting the 2-7 defeat aside if anyone is guilty of creating the current conjecture it’s Poch himself.

    As I said my personal view is that currently both Spurs and Poch are best with each other and a couple of decent results for Spurs providing Poch doesn’t give out any more strange answers to the media in his press conferences and this will all blow over fairly quickly.

    Frankie says Relax!😊

    TBA, still enough quality at Spurs to get out of their CL Group, make the top 4 and win the FA Cup this season you heard it here first.😊

    I guess it’s a crisis. They were dreadful at Brighton. Simply awful. What is happening there? Stale and a lack of investment by deep pockets Levy must be part of the problem and Poch has probably had a gutful and is now out of ideas. Even Kane looked out of form. I guess the loss to Bayern may have shattered their confidence too and given Brighton some hope.
