Mauricio Pochettino

Totti

Take their best players... Stop wasting cash on the wrong players..... Why not?

Think what you like of him; he's a vast upgrade on The Hobbit.

I don't know if Utd have the hungry squad he inherited at both here and Southampton, that's all I wonder.

Poch inherited Vertonghen, Kane, Lloris, Dembele, Rose, Walker etc. Who are all some of the best players in their position in the league over the last decade.

Poch is definitely a better coach than Solskjaer. But so are Van Gaal and Moyes.

I think you gotta attribute some of that hunger to Poch, tbf....

The likes of Jan, Dembele & Hugo were in a slump post AVB/Timmy and we had our own troublesome deadwood to to get rid of.


Moyes: IMO he shrank in the face of the scale of the club... Also fucked around by Rio & some of the old guard.
 
I think your wrong I think just like Jose did he would win things with that squad right now. Ole is useless. But the youth team is producing good prospects that Poch would polish. Pogaba gets binned but the reality is he could get them competing any decent coach could.

Well since Mou left Yanited, they also have improved their squad quite a lot actually.

They brought in Maguire, Fernandes and AWB. All of them are nailed on starters.
During the same time they have let go Lukaku (who was not in Ole's plans) and Herrera.
Now during last window they also added Cavani, Telles and van de Beek.

I'd say that squad of now has much more quality that Mou had at his disposal during his time.

But despite that I do not believe that Poch would get them silverware.

When Poch arrived Rose, Walker and Dembele where playing awful, fans where talking about selling them, Kane was doing ok but he would under any manager. The squad was a total mess, there seems to be some strange view that he inherited a great squad, it was good in parts and terrible in others.

United have Martial, Shaw, AWB, Maguire, Van Beek, Fernandes, Greenwood, Rashford players who performed brilliantly at their former clubs or in the case of Greenwood and Rashford are good talents. They have on paper at least as strong a team as Poch inherited with us. The issue with United is that the board always undermines their own manager such as backing the players first ie Pogba with Mourinho. If Poch is given clear control and proper backing he will do well I feel.

The premier league is far stronger than 5-6 years ago, you can’t simply be good and win things, you have to be either outstanding as Liverpool last season or good and be very lucky.

City however would be a better choice for Poch as he would get the players he wants and a better board in general. There are two clubs in the prem where players go and decline, United and Woolwich and in both cases they have terrible culture that stems from the top and leaves the manager with his pants down.

Lol

What was Kane when Poch arrived?

You thought Kane and Son will become what they are now? Don't be silly.

You named 5 players in Poch's 6 years. Pathetic.

Cannot believe someone is saying Poch was weak link. And he's Spurs fan lol.

He maybe isn't the guy who led us to trophies, but he gave us good 6 years and he deserves credit foe what he did.
He gave us two good years and destroyed Soldado’s career

I really detest Spurs fans who act as if Poch (and Jol & Redknapp whilst we're at it) were failures.

Completely divorced from reality.

Exactly each one of those you mentioned took us to a higher level taking us away from a lower mid table team to a ‘top 6’ team consistently. We would not been in a good position with a great stadium and team without them.

Now I'm a big fat dynamo!
there is some logic here. Athletic Bilbao can only sign Basque players which means they have to rely heavily on their youth set-up and getting the very best out of the group of players they've got. That's exactly what Poch is good at. He'd be perfect for them.
The question is if he wants a project like that. It seemed towards the end that he was moving more and more away from that aspect of his game and wanted more ready made stars.

One positive for the Bilbao job for him is that there is little expectation so it is very unlikely that it will hurt his stock at all unless it goes terrible and there is no reason that it should.

While the upside of a job like United is obviously way higher it also comes with some risk that may be out of Poch's hands. He could do well but with the current squad and Woodward above still not get the results the fans expect and it could look like a black mark on his resume.

The issue is Bilbao can't keep hold of their best players, even with those release clause. That Basque descent only policy would backfire big time when they need to replace outgoing players. Even with the money they can't always replace the quality.

Hipster job if you need to find a definition for one.
