Started off as a love in and ended up a roast.
Yeah it drifts off a bit at the end.. It's nice to see that opposing fans are starting to give credit where credits due with regards to Spurs, even if it is two steps forward and a cheeky step back.

It's like the winds of change are finally coming..

This video popped up on my YouTube recommended to watch - and I really enjoyed it. Fantastic short look at Pochettino, where he's come from in terms of his playing and footballing background, brief history on Argentinian football and even some criticism of his methods.

A fabulous watch.

Made me realise just how special he is.

Ginola, Berbatov (prior to his wankishness) and Rafa just three players that epitomised Spurs for me in my lifetime. Yes we have had better players King, Modric, Bale and Kane. Ali, Toby are getting to that level too now. But them first 3 are just Spursy.

this. i dont know why though. he wasnt the best, couldnt play 90 minutes, but I FUCKING LOVE HIM. hes my favourite spurs player by far and i dont even know why. the only reason i could think of was, at that point, modric bale were borderline stars, not even top notch yet ( yes, modric at that point was good, but no where near how good he is now ), but vdv was the first signing that i truly felt he was out of our league. he made me believe that we, spurs, can sign top players from madrid as well ( as much as they are unwanted, they could have pick someone else ). this signing was the signing that truly mark the turn around of our club. could never forget that final d day

I'm the same, don't pareticularly know why he was ballsy and arrogant and had the skills to back it up I guess. It's a totally different game now and have to say I enjoy the high energy pressing we have now. We're more reliant on team work and a coherent game plan that relying on just 1 or 2 individuals, and that's all down to Poch.

He is very intelligent. All this psychology stuff he learnt from experience without the benefit of a formal tertiary education.

“We’ve fit in fantastically since day one in England. It’s true that it’s only four years but we maybe could be here for 20 years."

He's talking about being in England not being at Spurs.

#thfc Pochettino was asked to reflect on his 4 years in England. He said: "I am fat. I think the new lifestyle in England changed me."

Two things I thought were interesting from the facebook video. Where he never enters the changing rooms and allows that as the space for players to do, say what they want.

And the most important goal being the Villa one where, if I understood him correctly, he believes is the one that turned everything around. I think he said if Kane didn't score that goal he might not still be here as it was a must win and we were doing badly at the time.
