Spurs just playing the long game for Poch, surely. No other top manager available and Poch on a short contract isn't he? The rumours were that he wanted to return but PSG blocked it.
No club the size of Spurs will tolerate “a few years in the wilderness”. Assuming we’re talking about a more remote wilderness than their usual habitat anyway!NES has done well wherever he has been, but still a lot of question marks. But looking at it, that was how Pochettino was when Spurs handed him the chance. Then they did a clear out and built a new young team with the likes of Eriksen, Lamela, Kane, etc.
I think that is what they are going for here with NES, a changing of the guard and a rebuild. Will be a few years in the wilderness whilst the team matures and grows is the downside.
Like watching a game from last season. Some nice moves, very few chances, abysmal finishing. Unlucky to hit the post, lucky they hit the post and shot straight at Leno.
He is one of the very few managers who appears really well behaved. I hope he will do well at your club, because he is a good coach too.
I think it helps to follow Mourinho these days too. By comparison to Mourinho's last weeks at a Club, you can only look good.
Haha, bit unfair to judge on a friendly, but Spurs had the few clear cut chances if Dele wasn't awful in front of goal they could of been 3-0 up by the end of the game, the one that hit the post was awful gotta be scoring them.
By wilderness I mean not top four, I think the top four is already locked in before the season even commences. Id love to be proven wrong but I just dont see the chasing pack of Hammers, Leicester, Everton, Arsenal, Spurs closing the gap.No club the size of Spurs will tolerate “a few years in the wilderness”. Assuming we’re talking about a more remote wilderness than their usual habitat anyway!
Didn’t Poch improve them very quickly anyway?
Surely there was someone in the championship or one of the other leagues in Europe that was worth taking a chance on rather than him. He’s a known quantity in the PL. Surely they can’t be surprised as to what they’re getting now.Nuno is a solid but boring manager. He will make them solid but you wonder why they sacked Mou and just got another manager in his ilk.
Then again, some of the names mentioned were even worse.
No idea, but they really were all the place in getting a new manager. From that mess they have got a somehwat decent manager.Surely there was someone in the championship or one of the other leagues in Europe that was worth taking a chance on rather than him.
