Shitty game but a great end.
Fairly early on in the book this quote jumped out at me.....
"Big European clubs have been looking for and interviewing prospective new coaches. One of them rang me, one that wants to change things and win the lot. They got in touch on several occasions, but it isn’t time to change."
I hope Poch stays for a long time, but this sentence made me realise the day will come when the time is right for him to change.
I'm still early on in the book, but it's a good read and interesting to hear what makes him tick.
"One of them rang me, one that wants to change things and win the lot."
This is ripe for a piss-taking
Great read so far,, approx 80% through it
Who knew how much detail goes on in planning the team on a daily basis and half time team talks etc.. Its unbelievable. Its quite clear from his book that if a player does not have the drive to improve then they don't have a future @ Spurs... hes mentions attitudes a lot..
I know people moan a lot sometimes about selections etc and poor results.. he knows more then any of us whats going on behind the scenes etc,, he knows now its all about that winning mentality we need to get more of. i.e results over the bigger teams. From reading his book, i know how frustrated he wouldve been after the recent utd game
few interesting things i pulled out
him and levy talk a lot....(trips away together as a team)
n'koudou (attitude) and Jansen (training) both needed to do more
he likes kane / wanayama a lot.... (we badly miss wanayama this season)
He bigged up marcus edwards massively and again with him its an attitude thing
I find myself wondering what "mate" tastes like.
Its tea thats made from Holly
I think pochettino has some kind of advertising deal with mate the amount he mentions it in the book
I thought it was hot chocolate
Balague on Talksport shortly to talk about this
Talk about mate ?
I think they should sell mate at the new ground, holly tea can't taste any worse than the tea they used to serve at WHL.
It's not that great to be honest
It tastes a bit like green tea, only a bit more fuller bodied, smokey and bitter. Wasn't keen at first but got hooked quite quickly while travelling round Argentina
Perhaps so, but I don’t think that quote is indicative of that.
It sounds like he bloody loves it doesn't he. The book's a whole lot funnier if you treat 'drinking mate' as a euthanism for snorting cocaine
Definately. Perhaps this was PSG? Sounds likely.
Well, it does combine the short term hit of coffee with the longer term linger of tea, so it's not far off! (although it's not been blamed for anyone killing themselves after illness - I think you mean euphemism).
Just ordered it from amazon (spurs affiliates) as a Christmas present for dad.
I don't normally read biographies, or books by celebrities/sportsmen, but this is something I think I need to make an exception for.
As a youth coach at a local team, and because of the way Spurs are right now, it just sounds like such a great thing to read.
Its not tactics or any of that (I don't even believe the book deals with that much or does it?), but I am a great believer in attitude and positivity, so I shall be adding this to my Christmas list.
I lived in Argy for a few months way back, never had any mate.
No need to feel sorry for me, just read the last word with the right accent.
