French journo on talksport right now stating that Conte is being contacted by PSG. However their first choice is Poch.
PSG made contact with Poch/ agent in November.

Not saying Poch will leave, just that PSG are interested. now talking in detail about Conte taking over at PSG.

edit: Conte more likely to take over
Really Madrid is the worry..he gets offered that job, he's off.. hopefully they just go with a short term manager to facilitate the clear out..Ancellotti returning & GutI might get the job for a season if that's the case.. personally I think we should be covering our bases & looking for a manager in case...

Can't see him being offered the madrid job. It's the presidential elections next year they will want a big name that can have immediate impact.

getting done tactically by Allegri has probably worked in our favour in terms of scaring some of those clubs off, especially PSG who are just trying to buy the CL. Euro Man City Resort

Losing Pochettino could really open up the flood gates and unleash a massive shitstorm coming our way. I'm not sure how the core of our squad would react but I can't see it ending well.

Levy is a smart man I hope do hope he realizes that this current project starts and ends with Pochettino.

They are going to have a big rebuild over next 2 years..to much noise that they want Poch for my liking.. I hope they go a shorterm manager however Poch leaving in summer can't be ignored..

So Rose and Davies aren't good enough for us?
Is Rose staying? Given his injury record I can't see anyone paying a huge fee for him.. Davies has done far better than I expected however his lack of pace in getting back when attacks break dowe is noticeable... I'd rather we turned him into a cb & bring someone that suits our style in..RB is a mess positionally Trippier is just not at that top level..makes far to many mistakes for his age imo

I don't think he was done tactically, but they had two chances all game and took them both. We had chances to kill the game in 1st half, and didn't, which was down to poor finishing not Poch's tactical failings

I hope he's telling you that in person! I wish I could be as confident myself - someone offers to quadruple his salary, he's gone, imho.
He hasn't won anything as a manager yet so I'm not quite sure why clubs would be willing to shell out so much money for him, also he's said many times he wants to stay at Tottenham and build something, we shouldn't be worrying about this.

I agree it wasn't anything tactical bar the highline for second goal..I don't think that came from manager. .just instinct & is where experience kicks in..OK we conceded no need to push on..close shop for 10 mins they were the ones needing to score..players on pitch reacted to their goal & went let's go win this instead of we are not conceding again.. that is down to experience

Things were tough up until a certain period in his courtship with our Daniel. Now they are married, and still in love :rolleyes:

He is being backed more than any other manager, with a good-sized pot. And he does not have to sell first. He is likely to extend at some point. I wouldn’t worry about discussions about, ‘what happens if he goes’ at this pointo_O

I would sincerely hope this is not how Levy or anyone else at the club is thinking. Pochettino has done a brilliant job up till now, but I refuse to believe he's the only manager breathing that would be able to. the whole house doesn't suddenly come tumbling down if he were to decide to move on.

That's some great news right there. Aside from anything else, (Poch being so chuffing brilliant for us) wouldn't want anyone else in charge when the new stadium opens. Imagine someone else swanning in and taking all the benefits after all this time. Unthinkable.

I don't actually think its this, knowing how important Poch is to the project, I think Levy would match any offer. I think its more the chance to manage and win thinks with a truly huge club who haven't performed as well as they might over the last few seasons

im not sure, when Allegri bought on Asamoah I thought it was a bit odd playing him on the left. But it worked a charm. It cut Son out completely and gave Trip all sorts of problems in that short spell.

we didn't counter or reshape and lost it there imo
