If Poch signs with us in next few weeks he will get £15m a season for 3 1/2 years at the least. He won't give two craps about the spurs compo. It's about getting back in for top level managers.
He won’t lose out financially, that’s the whole point.Because he didn't want to leave, to get him out of his position, they had to pay out the remainder of his contract. I dont see how if he didn't want to leave, why he should lose out financially for getting a new job. Like if Chris hughton got the Watford job, should he pay back his Brighton pay out?
That being said, you might be right having something in the contract, but if you've basically rescinded it, how can they enforce that at all? POch would have had to have signed some competition clause upon leaving, which would be fecking retarded of him if he did.
Smalling would improve Arsenal massively. They have literally been chasing him for 10 years now.
That's not saying much to be fair. Playing in a slower, less competitive league has made him look a world beater. He'd just be their next Sokratis or Mustafi. Wouldn't be long before the Arsenal faithful turned on him. Good luck to him.Smalling would greatly improve Arsenals defence
He’s played in this league before.That's not saying much to be fair. Playing in a slower, less competitive league has made him look a world beater. He'd just be their next Sokratis or Mustafi. Wouldn't be long before the Arsenal faithful turned on him. Good luck to him.
Sure, let’s continue to ignore what the Spurs squad are saying and continue to blindly worship Pochettino. Think about what you’re saying!Eric Dier hinted spending too long under the charge of Mauricio Pochettino had left Tottenham's players feeling trapped.
What a prick. That's down to Levy for fecks sake, i'm pretty sure Poch would have no issues with Dier leaving and replacing him with a capable CM.
