Worse, he almost seems to go out of his way to dig us out.
He was a great footballer but I think he's a bit thick!
He’s definitely thick. Plus very old school about his footballing views.

He’s one of those classic pundits that will get mad about zonal marking and then as soon as man marking gets abused over and over again it’s the individuals fault.

There’s a good reason why he won’t get into coaching as he’s not good enough tactically.

I genuinely worry he will be lined up for us if/when Poch leaves.

Jose's was a serial winner, and it would be just like him to try and prove he can do what Poch has so far failed to do and win us some silverware. He knows he's slipped down the rankings and managers like Poch and Klopp are the best in the world at the moment and it must be eating away at him inside.

It would end horrendously.
If Jose got the hump because Man Utd wouldn't spend enough money for him imagine what he'd think of Levy!

I reckon Levy is smart enough to know that him and Jose just wouldn't get on so I can't see it happening.

In a working relationship I agree, but apparently him and Levy get on quite well.

Not sure who I’d want to replace Pochettino. Maybe Bielsa for the rollercoaster ride.

Talking about Eriksen in the first part.
Hartson doesn't half chat some guff.

Re: Eriksen

"Clubs like Barcelona and Inter Milan will be coming in for him next summer"

Inter Milan? Does John know it's 2019 and not 2009?

"If they sell him now they'll get what, £20M-£30M"

So one of the most consistent creative players in Europe for the last 5 years is worth the same as Sessegnon?

He reminds me of that bloke down the pub who is into football but hasn't really followed it closely in a few years, yet still tries to hold court and act like he has the answer to everything. Some of his arguments aren't too bad but other things he says are just plain lazy for a professional pundit.
