Poor Ian Bolton on SSN. Asking Poch relentlessly about his ‘meeting’ with Zidane and Beckham. Poch explained that it was a coincidence and they spoke to them for 2 minutes. Bolton was asking ‘is this a case of 2+2 is 4’? And ‘do you often go out with Perez just the 2 of you’ all smarmy even though Poch said earlier that there were 3 of them. Also, ‘did you leave via the kitchen door’ to which Poch said no and at that point his face, for a second, looked like ‘shut the fuck up Bolton’

Nice try Sky.
You think that will put them off the scent? I don't. Horrible fuckers.

My God!

Let’s break this down:
Zidane - no connection with United, Fired/resigned last year from Real.
If giving transfer of experience to Poch, then it would probably be a bit negative and actually talking him out of the job.

Becham:
No real connection to Zidane, not representing any of the two clubs and is all about US Soccer these days,

So Whats the 2+2
Beckham and zidane both ex Madrid so it was obviously a secret meeting where poch asked them both how nice a club Madrid is and what the pay is like.

You want to tap up a manager and so what do you do you meet in a public place for all and sundry to see very secretive and clandestine.
Will sky ever give up on their agenda and narrative ? I don't think they will myself.

The Sun sensationalising Poch going out to dinner because we are doing well and it’s the best way to derail us. The headline is obviously misleading as the piece actually says it’s unknown if they dined together so it’s probably just a coincidence with any luck. I’m sure he will he asked about it in his next press conference.

Well if you post it in here all you're doing is encouraging the clicks.

Although you're right, it makes fuck all difference in reality.
Its not like they'll be poring over the analytics at the Sun and concluding: 'These stories about Poch are pointless lads, we're not getting a single click via Spurs Community'

Maybe Poch said he had been approached by a team from Madrid and wanted to know who they are. Oh yes the team we took apart last season in two CL games who have since sold their top player, sacked a manager and struggling for CL qualification. No thanks he said

Poch and Perez have gone to dinner or afternoon tea with Fergie a bunch of times. And yet they are both still here.
So now he's going to Madrid, not Manure? Can't keep up.
Ole's managing his way into a permanent move from Molde.

The more logical question for me in this situation would be: What the f*ck Zidan was doing in England with Beckham? Maybe he was testing the water with transfer to MU?

Porch saying the Leicester game is a cup final. Hope that doesn’t mean he’s having to focus the players’ minds because they haven’t been at it in training this week. It’s the kind of thing he says when he feels he has to motivate the players.

Really, OGS doing such a good job so far is just brilliant for us really, as it removes any potential risk we may have faced of Poch leaving us.

Also, I know OGS has done a brilliant job so far, but I'm still not convinced. They may end the season really strongly, but I refuse to believe this guy is a genius like United fans are making him out to be.

Can you believe United fans are saying OGS is a better manager than Poch and using the fact he won trophies at Molde as proof. It's hilarious what a few wins will do. They were all desperate for Poch and said he'd jump at the chance to leave us for them, now...they think Poch is a fraud and OGS is the messiah.

Twats. It will end in tears, but not until some point next season IMO. They'll be back in for Poch in 2020 I'm certain of it.

Shhhh. Let’s pretend OGS is the best and that Poch is a bit of a fraud for a few months.

I think people over think the game. At the end of the day it's about putting a ball in a net. These players have been doing it from kindergarten (whatever fuck that age is). Ferguson was hardly on the training pitch, neither was mourinho. Bobby robson was lucky to remember their names. But they created teams. Motivated. Right pieces right place. Pochetino himself said it isn't about formation it's about roles. When you go forward i drop back etc... think pep refered to formations as nothing more than telephone numbers.

Ole? Could he do it? No. I don't think so. It's when they have a dip, arguments in the changing room etc... could he sort it out? Tbh dunno.

But i am bugged that redknapp still gets slated for the "run about a bit". Pav didn't speak english, first game as a sub. He scored.
