Thread to discuss Mauricio Pochettino and Tottenham Hotspur in the 2019/20 season.
Getting to a CL final and finishing top 4 keeps the wolves from the door plus our stats are hugely skewed by the first 3 months of 2019 the Ole’s at the wheel era.Their form in 2019 is worse than Uniteds. We’re 5th in the 2019 form table. They’re 8th. The media just hasn’t jumped on their back....yet. That result signals that though.
I don’t get the clamour for him. He’s got an amazing squad. He’s done nothing with it. He’s got the second best squad in the league. He finished 3rd in a 2 horse race.He should walk... to Old Trafford.
I think that graphic can be misleading when you inherit a world class striker it saves you a lot of money and I think I'm right in saying he inherited a lot of the players he used in his first few seasons.I think it's worth remembering how little Spurs have spent in comparison to their rivals. The graphic is from October 2018.
Well Pochettino has over a sustained period moved Tottenham forward and improved results for them think it's 3 seasons in a row in the top 4, a league cup final and a champions league final. Utd are not a top 4 club right now to get back to the top we need to be a top 4 club again as by doing that you can attract the better players as you have more to offer and it helps retain your current players.The thing is for me, with the calls for Poch to be united manager.
We don't want to be a club that finishes top 4. We want to win the league, we aren't Spurs.
So if you don't want Ole, Poch has done nothing to prove he's the right man either.
However, Ole's had one window, he's shipped out some rubbish and our squad is unbalanced. Give him a chance ffs. It doesn't matter who is in charge, this club is not winning the league for a while. Give him a chance, he needs to get the players in and out for the style he wants to play. At the moment he's just trying to get the best out of a bad bunch.
Ilike the players he;s brought in, a few more windows like that and we'll be ok.
Did he do that in one window? Or 5 seasons? I’m glad you can now see a trophyless manager deserves time to prove himself.A team that he's built...
4. One more than Ole was allowed.in 2019 they only signed 2 players I think so he's not been able to build on that early success and go to the next level.
Don't get me wrong managers still have a strong say yes or no in terms of ability and final sign off but they're not the ones doing the deals and agreeing the prices so I don't think the financial stats are ones they should be judged by.I would be very surprised if Pochettino didn't have a say on transfers at Spurs. He will have identified the type of player to fit in his system.
No, obviously not, however he has Spurs competing at a high level and it's been done on a shoe string budget in comparison to his rivals. Could he achieve more with better financial resourses? We won't know the answer until he moves on from Spurs.Don't get me wrong managers still have a strong say yes or no in terms of ability and final sign off but they're not the ones doing the deals and agreeing the prices so I don't think the financial stats are ones they should be judged by.
