    Whoever replaces poch (and I do think he will be gone by next season) will have to be able to take them to that next level. The wrong guy in charge and it could be back to midtable for them again.

    Doesn’t matter...you can’t stand still. It’s not even losing...it’s the alarming rate we have done it for the last year...relegation form in all reality plus all the in game **** that we see every week that does not change...so tbh someone’s getting a finger pointed at them and personally I dont do fanboy stuff...if Poch is done..he can go...if he’s waiting for a statue he will be waiting a long time.


    Anyway no one is saying Poch out but it’ll happen eventually...that’s life.

    This definitely had the desired result :bandit:

    Thought we were lucky tbf. I couldn’t see what was wrong with the second Spurs goal so will need to see that again but we’ll take it. Typical it was our right back who scored from a similar situation just after that though! And what a goal by Maddison. Thought we played ok, can do better. Lots of poor control and stray passes that lose us control of the game. Spurs play some good stuff but didn’t have enough final ball and had the stuffing knocked out of them by the 2-0 to 1-1 phase of the game

    Poch is the reason Spurs are now seen as a top 4 club. He's the reason they reached a CL Final. Difficult to see how they can replace him really, but equally difficult to see how much further he can take them.

    So that's Tottenham ****ed then. Shame.

    Mentality and I’m afraid for me mentality comes from a manager down to the players. I’ve seen it time and time again from the teams managed by certain managers...it’s not a coincidence

    I’m not saying Poch out, I’m just saying, you know.

    That's what spending £1 billion and benching Sterling the #bottler will get you

    I don’t understand this thinking about Poch is the only reason. As a fan who watches 99% of the games I can’t but help mention many of our **** ups in game are due to him too plus his over emotional analysis creates an atmosphere contrary to ruthless winning machine mentality..he wants to be everyone’s Dad. You might not feel that but I do having followed him manage my club for 6 years now.

    You might not believe me but with a “better” manager...we might have won something with this bunch.


    Not saying Poch out...but you know what I mean.

    I put down a 4-0 win for City in our prediction league and it was gone after 18 minutes, because it wasn't high enough! <laugh> ****ing hell.

    Disappointed tbh.

    I was expecting a much angrier response than this, especially as you have Saints at WHL next week, giving you every chance of laughing at me.

    True. I’m not sure Rodgers has much more ability than Puel but the players play for him and that is the difference. If things have become strained between Poch and the squad or he’s just not getting the best from the group any more, maybe he needs a new challenge and you need a fresh perspective.
    Surprised more isn’t being made about the decisions that went against you to be fair

    It’s because from a fans perspective we know that spending our time complaining about refs decisions is just making excuses and papering over the cracks internally.

    Or at least that’s why I’m not too focused on the refs...they make **** ups for both teams.

    **** him, and **** me for putting him in my FF team when I know how error-prone he is.
