Hard to argue with most of that, the stadium is brilliant and Pochettino clearly is a very good manager.  They haven't won anything because however good they've been, Man City and Liverpool have better managers and have spent more money.

Agreed that Pep and Klopp have an edge on Poch, but Mourinho is miles behind all 3, so if they think they've taken a step forward with this appointment I suspect the next year or so will be a real shock to the system.

Up to the point Mourinho returned to Chelsea and won the Premier league again I think he was going pretty well and not many of us would have thought Spurs appointing him was a bad decision. But that last season at Chelsea and his time at Man Utd, I think, has shown that his methods have passed their sell by date.

Spurs are going to have to get used to a far more pragmatic ( dull ) style of football.
I think Poch is an excellent manager but really fucked the Champs!eague Final.
If he still out of a job by January and our league position has not changed ...........

Despite their league form and Champions League final there had been a lot of negativity surrounding Spurs in the past eighteen months. It was probably time for a change of manager. It will almost certainly be time for another change of manager in two or three years, but that is probably the case in football in general these days.

Iím not a fan of Mourinhoís style of football

but in his time Man Utd which is considered to be a failure he still won more trophies in 2/3 years than Spurs have won in the last 20/30 years

I think thatís what they want
they see Mourinho as a short cut to trophy success
it might only be short term but you can see why they have gone for him

Probably cobblers but Nuno 2/1 favourite to be next Arsenal manager.

"Everton boss Marco Silva's Goodison Park fate has been sealed, with David Moyes set to return as manager. (Mirror)"

That would be extremely funny.

That would be extremely funny.

Even funnier would be Mark Hughes who is also in the running apparently.

Poch may not have to move house after all.  Just guessing.

Hopefully Nuno will be lined up to replace Emery.

Everton gave Howard Kendall three cracks at the job so giving Moyes a second go probably shouldn't come as a surprise. Last week on the radio a West Ham fan wanted Moyes back at the London Stadium and said they should never have let him go.
