    Match Threads Brighton & Hove Albion vs Spurs

    Could not agree more. Absolutely loved Harry's reign. Left me with amazing memories. Just seeing him on the show yesterday was great - proper manager. Simply does not get the credit he deserves, too many people deal with him in a "classist" way - as if he is H at the pub offering a few football...

    Pochettino post Liverpool press conference

    A different line of thinking. We will have to agree to disagree. I wish you a pleasant week sir.

    Pochettino post Liverpool press conference

    Agreed on the last point - it’s perhaps the range of fee in the negotiation that will widen in the current environment. Before it was the odd 5 million and Frazier Campbell. Now it seems like 55 to 75 million for Wilfred Zaha

    Pochettino post Liverpool press conference

    Well I was speaking in context of the overall Levy reign and not just this window. But to be fair, even this window the ITK posts were hot with names - but clearly when the selling clubs were playing around trying to get us into a desperate spot and shell out millions more, both Poch and Levy...

    Pochettino post Liverpool press conference

    Posted this on the match thread in response to a suggestion that we spend big and if we dont its a bs excuse. Took me some 20 mins so will post it here too: - your point is spend a 100 million (or two considering the cost of players today) to improve the squad with world class players to...

    Well to summarise: - your point is spend a 100 million (or two considering the cost of players today) to improve the squad with world class players to freshen us up and starting challenging for things; - my point is that is a bullshit naive unrealistic suggestion suitable for Football Manager...

    Fair enough. Who exactly are you going to sign and replace if you were given the choice? Is it depth? What is the weak link in our side. I agree we need more depth. But our first 11? Because of the lack of depth and the quality of our first 11 (being where they were in the summer) we are tired...

    7 out of our 11 starters were in World Cup semi final squads. Mentally, physically and emotionally a rollercoaster. Not exactly a baseless excuse. Vorm, Eriksen, Maura and Winks were the others in the team. Poch and Levy are not going to waste millions on a player unless he can clearly improve...

    Said it before, will say it again. It seems simple - no rest in what has been a hectic summer. No rest - no preseason. A tired squad, a tired performance. The one person who had some time to rest and prepare and that’s Maura. It shows in terms of how sharp he is. We are a tired team.

    Tubes Meets Mauricio Pochettino

    Top stuff - great for us to have a manager like him. Clearly someone who believes in the development of players as people and in terms of their playing ability. He knows that the new stadium and world class training facilities are aspects very few teams have. Its a top playing squad in a time...
