    THE POCH .- Pochettino favours a very high pressing attacking style of football. He usually favours a 4-2-3-1 formation. While doing so, he instructs his team to build pressure from the back, intimidate and unsettle opponents easily.
    Managerial statistics
    As of 11 May 2014.

    He hasn't signed yet so he may not come at all.

    However if he does then I'm not so sure he's a bad choice. He's young, has great potential, plays the right way and gets the best out of players as he has shown at Southampton this year bringing on Lallana, Rodriguez, Chambers, Lovnen?Shaw and others. I know that most of them were there before but he got more out of them and into the England squad.

    The one thing that has to happen if he comes is if he's given a three year contract as has been said he must be given all that time to bring the team along. We need stability badly.

    The other thing is that this team is not good enough for top 4 whoever the manager is and a lot of players must go and others to come in. I think some of the decisions will be made for us with a number wanting to leave after the WC. I don't think Paulinio, Lloris, Vertognen, Eriksen and Sandro (who's agent says he wants to go to Italy) will start the season so it could be a big building job for the manager whoever he is.

    I said before my choice is Ancellotie but now RM have won the CL then he's not going to be released. So if it's Pinocchio then we have to stand by him and hope he gets the support of the club and supporters and maybe he can do what Rodgers did at L'pool this year when no one gave them a chance and they almost won the title. Everything is possible with the right blend of players and management.

    I think we have put ourselves back 5 or 6 years in the last couple iof seasons with dithering and bad choices by Levy and it will be a difficult task for any manager to get us back to making quarter finals of the CL and top 4 again but I really hope the new guy has the ability and can get us there. The supporters deserve better even if Levy doesn't.

    Cant believe all these comments saying Poch isnt good enough ermmmmm bin dippers did the same with Rodgers look how good they are Toffees was not happy with Martinez cause he relegated Wigan look how hard they were to beat yes we got 4 points of them but should of lost both games. Some fans need to get there head out of there asses we are not a massive club no chance of Ancelloti those who think we had a chance are living in cloud cuckoo land. I cant wait for Poch to be announced do i expect miracles no but i want my team to play with swagger again and become hard to beat Southampton most possesion last season but attack with it no boring AVB shit.

    Opinions seem split all over the net. I'll get behind him and see what happens but I won't hold my breath that he'll win us trophies. lol.

    He didn't get the sack from Espanyol, far from it he went to them when they were doomed for relegation and kept them up with no money to spend.

    He's done a good job at Saints and I think he'll do a good job for us. The biggest problem he'll face is Levy. He want's to do the transfer deals and insists on a director of football and they always interfere that's why we would never get a top manager who's been around and managed big clubs. Levy wants a yes man so I just hope Poch is his own man and doesn't put up with Levy's shit.

    As I've said before he has to get players in as what we have is just not good enough.

    I'm behind our new manager although I'm a little surprised he's been given a 5 year deal. If it doesn't work out it's another big pay out.

    Oh to be a failed manager, Moyes 4 mil, Kenny Dalgleish nearly 2 mil
    from 3 clubs he was fired from and there are many others including at least 3 from Chelsea. It must be the only profession....if you can call it that....that pays for failure with the exception of the Banks of course.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what our new manager can do but I'm not hopefull of the squad we have at the moment.

    Absoletely right Spurs fans do need to be more realistic. The guy's done well with Southampton, seems to have a long term plan and gets on with his players especially the yougsters. Both at Espanyol and Southampton he's brought them through into the first team squad and in Southamtons case some have become internationals as well.
    He's also taken more points off of the top four than us, playing our style of football. I also think he won't take any crap from Levy so all in all I'm quite excited by the appointment as long as he is given TIME.

    I hope and pray he does well, and dare I say it?, I think he will given time, but then I say that with all the managers we have had over the years. However, I hope he performs better in his first season in charge than that manager we had some time ago, forgot his name, a right waste of time. We lost 1-5 away to Man City, 0-4 at home to Birmingham, 1-4 at home to West Ham, 1-4 away to Bolton, 1-5 away to Birmingham, and 1-4 at home to the Arsenal. Ah, the names just come to me, Bill Nicholson in the 1958-59 season. Then there was Keith Burkinshaw in the 1976-77 season, away defeats to W.B.A 2-4, Derby 2-8, West Ham 3-5, Everton 0-4, and Man City 0-5, and we were relegated. Keith then guided us to two FA Cup victories, and a UEFA Cup victory, and we all know what the greatest manager in the history of the club did. It is all about giving a manager time, and I hope Levy and the supporters do get behind Pochettino, but in Levy's case it could be to stab him in the back if it goes pear shaped.
