To use a famous quote "i come in peace! "-not a red but i thought i'd share something which has been nagging at me and finally dawned on me after watching the spuds v. el cid, it might just be me but do any of you think pochettino has a touch of the 'fergies' about him (not looks or diplomacy obviously! ), but the brand of football he plays?

the way he gets the players engaged for the club, the way he deals with players who throw a strop (danny rose springs to mind), how he's able to get that extra 10% or more from players who don't always show signs of being better class, attracting players to a club that don't pay top whack and works with the youth to bring them through, just like fergie did.

he also works within a budget and doesn't spit the dummy, just cracks on, i know you've got mourinho, but honestly, wouldn't you rather have gone to the scouse sludge and at least given it a go, like 2 boxers in the final round, that's what fergie did as i remember, if he lost, fair enough, but at least the fans went home with pride.

i know jose is a pragmatist, but for me, pochettino really does remind me of the way fergie used to go about his business, keep trying till the last whistle, players come and go, but great managers come along maybe once or twice in a generation.

i think pochettino is just that, and he'd suit your club and style of football you fans want and demand, so for me, i'd nab him before someone else does, and if levy demanded pogba or lukaku, or both, i'd snap his hand off, no i'm not mad, but seriously, pochettino would be worth every penny, how long will mourinho stay?

4 years is the average, and as i'm sure you've read, he says united won't be his last club, while previously stating he want to stay at united for years and years, yet teasing psg in an interview with a french paper, maybe its a way of getting the contract he wants, but i'd say this, there is no way any club can afford to keep buying players who cost 75 million + each season, and wanting more than 1 in that price band (unless you go to work on a camel).

so a manager who promotes youth, sees a player who plays okay, but can be turned into an international (trippier springs to mind), amongst others, i'd say is worth way more long term than a mourinho type of manager, so there you go; maybe you think i'm talking tosh, and that's cool, but honestly, pochettino i think is your next fergie, right then, back in my box!

I'm not quite sure why you think we can't keep up with this level of spending, the financial results of the club are published regularly and the club is constantly one of the richest in the world.

Poch is a good managed. Fergy had great success with Aberdeen before coming down to Man Utd. Poch has done very well at Tottenham, for me he is running out of time to win something with this squad though. Maybe this year will be his year? (Now where have we heard that before 🤔)

Really rate Poch, wanted him after Moyes, definitely after LVG but I think Jose is here for a while yet.

Poch has his teams play tight but with bags of energy and no fear. Major criticism I have is our players look scared to commit going forward and we are too defensive for our stature and quality.

I think he will be our next manager.

I 2nd that. I think poch will be manager after Mourinho.

If he fails to win anything again this season with the players at his disposal the team will lose some of its best players. He has to start winning silverware. Personally i hope spurs do win something. I like him and i like the way he has spurs playing but I also think he will be barcelona or Madrids next manager if he does get spurs winning.

i hope pochettino becomes our next manager when mourinho calls it a day. The likes of TFM, tuanzebe, lingard, rashford and martial would definitely excel under his management.
