It just annoys me that he wasn't backed so we don't know how good he is, if Levy backs Jose then I would be furious if I were a Spurs fan. I've already seen rumours of Matic, Bale and Bruno Fernandes though not sure how realistic they are without first selling Kane.

No one can consider Pochettino's time there as anything but a success. He did more for the club on the pitch (and subsequently off it via CL revenue) than anyone in the 30 years before him.

He'll likely be the Bayern Munich Manager next and that period will define if he is good or great in the "Has he won anything" eyes.

As a Spurs fan you are always furious with Levy. I can only think of one transfer window where a manager was truly backed otherwise it has always been dollar in and dollar out. No pound sign on this key board.

I'd said on here a couple of times over the years we'd have Poch for 5 years through the stadium transition. He'll then leave for a Super Club. We had him for just over 5.

I tend to get it every 3 years but my desire to play seems to have diminished according to Steam. 2013 has 679 hours, 2016 has 65 hours and 2019 2 hours. It's not looking good for 2022.

It's like me with shoes and handbags....except I don't think I've ever been 'clean' for more than 4 days.

Been watching the press conferences, and all I keep thing is why is that odious man at our beloved club. There seems to be some optimism amongst fans that he will win us something, so we live in hope.

Yeah i think the prem has been way more entertaining these last few seasons, where top 4 is no longer nailed in, everything is more unpredictable and anyone has the right to go for it, a la Leicester.

That optimism will be gone by September. It's a reminder of how fickle and forgetful the football fan is.

We did pick up the victory today and scored some nice goals. The negative substitutions by the manager almost allowed West Ham back in the game.

I couldn't believe Arsenal got the point against the Saints. I was really looking forward to their AFTV crew frothing at their inept display.

Just watching City-Chelsea. Mahrez is wasted at City and should be at a club where he is the main man. Such a terrific footballer!

He can be terrific but also can go missing in big games as does Sterling. I'm not sure both of them in the side at the same time is a great idea.
