I didn’t think Poch can get too much of the blame at the moment, with the stadium uncertainty and am sure he wanted new signing, ok for whatever the reasons for not getting any, he’s the best manager we have had for ages, no disrespect to Jol and some others, I think we will have another good season and hopefully something to show for it come May

just hope that if things don't go to plan Levy remembers this, and stands by Poch
Not even Levy is that stupid. He knows Poch is the man. He just needs to back the man when stadium in. Stadium sponsor will pay for the players he wants

What do you make of Jenas' claim that Poch would jump at the chance of being ManU manager? I wonder whether it's true, because I don't think he wants to go back to being head coach. Too much has been read into what Poch meant by bravery.

Pretty sure he'd be tempted by it.
So lets hope we have a good season

They'd have to dispense with their DoF, because I don't think that's something he'd want.
To get Poch off us, someone who apart from klopp and maybe Pepe is most likely to recreate another Ferguson style era united...

Unfortunately think they'd bend ovee backwards and offer whatever he wants

He should have backed him this summer. Then it might not be such a difficult season.

I personally am not worried about man utd, or any other English team. His heart also belongs to Paris and Barcelona....

Whatever happens this season, whether we finish 3rd, 5th, 7th or 11th, Poch will be just fine. When you look at how much even teams outside of the top 8 have strengthened compared to us he has the perfect excuse for us not making CL or winning anything again. The difficulty will be getting a new top-class manager in if he does leave - whoever the club approach will obviously be mindful that, whatever the club say, this summer Levy did not honour his promise to Poch and the players who signed new contracts to strengthen the squad. If Rose and Toby leave, as looks likely, it'll be the opposite.

But anyway he's not going anywhere for now so let's hope the players who stay really are 100% all-in on his plan for the season.

I don't think Poch is the kind of person making excuses. If we fail, he'll be man enough to carry the can himself.

So, were you trying to say that he might manage Red Star FC one day?
Espanyol is in Barcelona, his family home is in Barcelona... He is unlikely to take Espanyol. Paris he played for PSG and clearly stated he loves.
