    Except they did go down that path. Which begs the question, why didn't these same principles come into effect when they decided to borrow £600 million+ to fund a new stadium, which may or may not see a return on their investment?

    No one cares about the new stadium except for you and Daniel Levy. It will not impact the decision-making process when Poch decides whether or not he needs to leave the club in order to further his ambitions. While we're on the subject of stadiums, Old Trafford is one the most famous sporting venues in the world. The Bernabeu isn't half-bad either, not to mention the infinitely more appealing climate and culture of which Poch is accustomed to.

    1. The only thing I'm wishing for is Ole to succeed. Poch is a distant second along with Zidane, Allegri, Jardim and whole host of other perfectly adequate applicants.

    2. How can you be so sure he won't leave?

    3. What the hell is a straw-clutcher?

    The new stadium allows Spurs to pay higher wages due to generating more revenue. See Kane's new 200 000 a week deal, id imagine they will offer Eriksen the same. Whether he accepts or not is another thing entirely.

    If Poch doesn’t move, I can guarantee now, you will simply say *United weren’t interested*.

    Poch is probably starting to worry about Ole doing well now..

    Poch will not be joining Utd in the summer, then we will be hearing the usual, we didn't want him anyway, from the fans who are sure he will crawl over glass to come to Utd.

    Its what fans do, from Utd to Barnet.

    Nothing is guaranteed.

    Look at Arsenal for example.

    Realistically, there is more chance of Poch joining Real Madrid than United.

    Nah. Clearly there's interest, but I'm not entirely sold he'll leave Spurs or if he does it'll be for United.

    I'm not sold he definitely wants United. I'm also not totally convinced he's the ideal fit for a top club with vast riches because the pressures are different to what hes faced at Espanyol, Southampton and Tottenham. He's an excellent manager but I don't know if he's the right man for United.

    Some recent comments from Poch make me feel he's gunning for the Real Madrid job, especially comments from today about how much he watches La Liga.

    Yeah, just like the comment that he was watching the Liverpool City game must mean he wants to manage one of those teams.

    Why? He purposely posted he was a neutral, if he had said *united were my boyhood club and jizzed as the goal went in*. Then id say he clearly wants the job.

    I mean that would be a fairly stupid comment for him to make at this point.

    Why do Untied fans ignore everything he says about being happy and pick up on him answering a weighted question given to him? He may want the job but saying he watched a Europeon Cup Final is hardly proof of such.

    Yeah I really do, most people on here can have a well argued debate, as has been seen with a good amount of posters. It’s the same when it comes to Pochs ability when he’s winning he’s the real deal, when he loses he’s a choker, it’s such knee jerk BS.

    But strip it back, I haven’t been able to see what question he was asked to give this answer. I’d say most neutral fan in the world, nevermind Europe, were cheering on that game, probably the best finial I have seen live.

    TBF, I wouldn't be surprised if some don't even want him. Could just be trying to wind Glaston up.

    You do realise you are on a United supporters forum right? Kindly reject your request to strip back muppetry over the possibility of Poch joining United.

    Exactly, The difference in matchday revenue between Arsenal and Spurs is £50 million and if you add £15 million extra for naming rights deal than that's £65 million per year. How much of that is going to be interest payment? I'm assuming it's half of that at least.

    I think Eriksen has gotten as far as he could with Spurs, time to make the jump to Spain. He would fit like a glove at Barca

    Sometimes its what they dont say and since Jose got fired and all these rumours started swirling around Poch hasnt said a word about his commitment to Spurs. I believe he wants the job

    :lol: Mate, there have been several different direct quotes about how he'd like to stay for a long time. For example (3 days ago):

    "I hope, or I wish to be here 20 years, and decide to leave or to finish my career here. I am so focused here, and want to help the club to achieve what the club want to be in history.It would be fantastic. I am so happy to be here. I am so happy to work in that pressure. Why not?"

    I stand corrected, I didnt see that quote. Having said that I am still of the opinion that he will probably end up at OT . I guess we'll see what happens this summer

    I'll be honest, I don't see any reason for him coming other than the fact we think he'd want the job. Certainly nothing he's said.

    Are you satisfied with what he has said on the issue since Mourinho went? Has he convinced you he will be there next season? For me he’s very clever and said nothing that would convince me if I was a Spurs fan.

    If we assume that Pochettino wants to stay at Spurs for the foreseeable future, I still don't see why he should publicly distance himself from a potential future employer. This was true about Real Madrid in the summer and just as true now. If he publicly rules himself out of managing the club then that's something that will be brought up if he at some point in the future wants to manage that club. It really doesn't benefit him at all to do so. I don't expect him to rule himself out publicly from any job, and if he started doing it now, then if he is linked with another job later then he would have to do it again, and again.
