Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says he hopes to emulate what Arsene Wenger did at Arsenal and stay at the club for 20 years, but would like to ask the Frenchman whether it was worth it.

Poch, if you stay as long as Wenger did, and deliver what he achieved, we won't hound you out the way that lot down the road did.

Guaranteed.

LOL not happening. Eventually, the ambitions of Pochettino and the attitude of Levy will clash too hard and he will move to a country with more sunshine.
Could you please explain what attitude Levy has? As far as I can see, Levy backs Poch, it appears to be Poch that is reluctant to spend on the wrong player. (Rightly so.)

I gave you a winner rating as I wouldn't do it.
But there are already "fans" who think we can do better than him.
They're mad, of course, but they exist now.

He is 100% suited to our club and could stay as long as he wants. I for one am not confused about who has taken us from consistent perennial UCL nearly team, to title aspirations within such a short space of time

No one saying in the future it isn't possible for them to fall out, Sugar and Venables did. However, these two are working just fine together and respect each other even if we cant match the finances of some of the others.

Bottom line:- He has to ask himself is spurs the club for the long-term? We need to show him lots of love, and make sure he stays.
Man Utd, RM ...theyre not exactly long-term where the legacy is his, are they?

If poch DOES stay though... we need to commit to stick by him without the moaning like arsenal ungrateful gits did to wenger.
criticism yes, fairly made. but no hounding.

Yes everything comes to an end... even bill nic, but if poch is the 2nd coming then it'll go along way to making me forget the 1970s

Did you miss the 27 years that they had one manager that built possibly the biggest legacy of any football manager of any club ever,?

not at all. But Alex Ferguson is a part of Manure history. If they get back to winning ways, he'll be soon forgotten to an extent. Its the nature of life , and football. In the same way if poch is successful, i can put the nightmare of george graham to the sword.

Christian Gross was a worse nightmare...

Graham and Gross were never as bad as Ramos and Boas in their second seasons.

I believe Man United genuinely want another 20 year dynasty and they totally believe Poch is the man for that.
They thought Moyes was after 9 steady years at Everton. Fuck knows what they were doing with LVG and Maureen, they're both totally short termist. Now they're back long for that "forever man"

I liked Poch comments but feel it's just him saying "I might stay here for another 20 years, I might not"
As in nothing is decided

He's just refreshingly honest. When he says something like 'I may or may not be here for 20 years', he's right. A lot can happen in football in a short time. He might have a bust up with Levy. He might finish below mid-table and get the boot. He might get bored. He might never win a trophy with us, but love the club and stay 20 years.... As Spurs fans, understandably, we've been bitten too many times. But Poch is the real deal and has integrity. IMO he is staying with us and has no desire to go anywhere anytime soon. It's all paper talk.

A big part of Ferguson's success was due to his intimidating character and foul temper. The FA, officials, players and other managers were all intimidated by him.Add to that the media continually blowing smoke up his arse for 20 years plus their spending power and it's a recipe for success.

He also knew how to manage a football team.
They played great football for decades and won a ridiculous amount of trophies.

Seriously?

Isn't there literally a statue of him at Old Trafford, meaning it's unlikely he'll ever be forgotten?
