Although we are disappointed with results right now it does feel like we are now in a position to invest and rebuild the squad as he wants. If Poch is up for a rebuild then he should stay.It's not like he hasn't been backed. Ndombele, Lo Celso and Sessegnon are top signings and we treid hard for Dybala with Bruno Fernandes in the picture as well. He's been given 3 of his top targets and now he has to get them playing how he wants once they're fit. To even consider walking out before that would be a massive cop out and Levy won't kick him out either IMO.

Let me see if I got this right. When we lost to Leicester, aside from TD, none of the new signings played let alone were on the bench. So we essentially played with almost exactly the same group of players that we had last year, and the year before. The same players that were involved in one of the longest seasons of their careers; World Cup all the way through to the UCL final. All that despite not having signed a single player that season.Absolutely. It's all very well over-achieving with a nice little cache of excuses to fall back on, but when the excuses no longer exist we find out who really has the bottle for the job. I really hope Poch is that man, but to do it he needs to be fully committed and put all thoughts of RM out of his mind. At the very, very least he needs to stop all the cryptic press conference bollox.
I disagree. His spoken English has got very much better over the years, though he obviously comprehends far more in English in the way of questions than he can give back in English to make the subtle points he makes or tries to make. He's a fabulous representative for the club in post-match interviews, and pre-match even more so — bright, friendly, courteous and encouraging.Mauricio should stick to the same script that he used when he was at Southampton... get somebody else to give post-game reports in the englisn languaguage. I personally don't bother with his after-game stuff because of his lack of language skills make him sound very repetitous
and frankly, boring. Also, I think he has been so engaged in the game emotionally that he can't switch off and what maybe what should have been his after-game rant- to- his- players comes out as a sort of disjointed blurted-out bitch to the media.
