I kind of wish Barcelona would show interest in him because then I think some would get a glimpse of it.

I'm 99% convinced he'd turn down any offer by them because of his history with Espanyol.
Is the main rivalry in Barcelona not with Real? I always got the impression that it was a local rivalry but they almost join forces in a Catalan hatred of Real Madrid and everything they stand for.

I think actually that Barca would be a worryingly good match for Potch... He could do the same as he has here but on drugs

Sadly It has become a rare trait in the Footballing world...
FTFY. And yes it is sad.

Sadder that people don't recognize it when they see it too. Thus far, apparently, Levy does and we are benefiting. Long may it continue.

hope this doesn't turn into another harry situation where it distracts our league form, get him a new contract!
I don't see Poch being a douchebag like Harry was, though. He seems extremely principled and hard working. This guy will get the job done without getting distracted, IMO. Then we'll see!

Think of Espanyol as Man City before the arabs. Barcelona have a more intense rivalry with RM, but for the Espanyol fans, the rival is Barcelona.

Pochottino is no mug, as it stands he hasn't achieved anything but he knows that he can with Spurs and when he does he will have the pick of any club he wants.
He might stay with us if we are good enough but either way he knows his best option is to stay with us at this time and for a while yet.
Everything else is bunkum.

As a setup I think we're more organised than UTD. Normally if a player was getting linked with them I would get worried but since the media have been talking up Kane and Poch to them I haven't felt worried at all. It all just feels very different now, we don't need to worry about the likes of UTD anymore.

The funny ones Arse talking about Kane and Poch going to a big club and I chuckle to myself they have completely forgot, Sagna, Clichy, Nasri, Fabregas and RVP all left to go to a Big Club.

Sagna, clichy and nasri went to a rich club, not a big club.

Plus man utd still have almighty pulling power, they're the biggest club in the country and one of the biggest clubs in the world, but saying that I still don't think Kane would go there. Poch on the other hand, after a few years with us he might be interested if they came calling, but I could be wrong.

He will do what he done at Chelsea and turn them into a laughing stock, they will become Jose United. All the media attention will be on United, City and Chelsea this summer and next season, we will stay under the radar hopfully and go about our bussiness.
