I think the guy is the best Manager we've had in a good long while. He has a clear vision on how he wants his team to play & has the ability to get the players doing it, which is why I'm somewhat peed off that Levy doesn't give him the backing he deserves.

He deserves to have his targets in by now, so we can start the season in a positive manner.

Can we please stop with myth about Levy not backing Poch.

All clubs need to do this but it's got little to do with Danny Rose.
Listening to that Sun Journo who wrote the Rose story on radio : He had the bollocks to state that some of the players would be supporting Rose without quoting any credible sources! Some of these wanna be journos should give it away. Even Simon Peach who is an obvious mouth piece for United putting out Jose's stated intentions /wants for a L/B has a bit of a tap up and then scuttles for cover and suggests that he used to cover Spurs so he must be impartial to a degree, they are all full of s*** . Sorry bit of a rant but there its out!

You don't even question whether it's Levy's fault? You just assume and assert that he's not prepared to back the manager?

Spurs are not the sort of club that can just click their fingers and get whoever they want. Not even Barcelona can do that, as we can see.

We know Poch wants Barkley, but we don't know that he thinks he's worth £50m, so we don't know that Levy is simply refusing to back him by not paying up.

You also assume Pochettino is lying when he says they are working hard to sign players. Is it that you are so desperate for us to sign players that your judgement and fair-mindedness just goes straight out the window, or do you know a lot more than I do (which you may well do, to be fair!)

He said that Rose is away from the rest of the squad. Rather than catch him out it shows that Rose isn't running round high fiving everyone for talking to the Sun. Also, it's business as usual, this hasn't changed our focus on Sunday.
To be fair I don't think this is in MP's hands, so there is no point in him having a meeting with Rose to thrash things out.
Whether Rose is sold to Utd, is forgiven, or has his contract shredded is a decision for Levy.

Good to see Poch come out and say this, however it's a shame he didn't inform us he's "berry, berry happy". I need my drug.

Why?

I shouldn't think it works like that.

If you believed the ITKs, then when Adebayor, Kaboul and co were in a furious row about something or another,
MP just passed it up to Levy. It did not end well for them.

I think Dougal could well be right - MP is genuinely totally focused on the next game. As he should be.
MP hasn't the time or the interest to deal with all the politics.

He passed it to Levy with his opinions about the players, and how valuable to the squad they are. You can be fairly sure if that. I think they're quite a grown-up bunch of people running our club now.

Don't understand the logic of KWP in a back four but not in the 3CB system? Surely that would be even better for him (and us) in both senses.

Don't understand the logic of playing Sissoko. Ever.
it is called not buying anyone quickly. How we are this close to season and this short of options is unfathomable.

Yeah, but i do think that it would be very naive to think there aren't quite a few of our players in the same page as rose without the inclination to go to the press.

I'm already convinced Toby is one of them. We get him to sign up then it would be hugely encouraging.
