    Match Threads Manchester United vs Spurs - Match Thread

    Not just Jose. You look at Ole’s stats over the last 22 games and they are considerably worse than any post Fergie manager and the results that cost them their jobs. I think a large part of their transformation from the weekend performance to midweek was combination of raising their game to...

    Match Threads Manchester United vs Spurs - Match Thread

    Looking at the raw data, I suspect it’s a case of lose and get sacked for Ole, and he’s probably told his players that. So the question is will they find another gear to actually play us, or will our mini revival roll on? We need to win, I think, given last year’s result in the corresponding...

    Club Statement - Pochettino leaves

    Personally, as great a manager as he is, I don’t think they’d even approach him. Right now the atmosphere there is toxic. The stadium was half empty last night, fans walking out with fifteen to go... out cheered by a team that had no fans there... the Arse board need stability and cohesion and...

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    (That’s the kind of post you miss the lighthearted chuckle in the voice that you’d get in normal conversation. Poch was awesome, I loved having him as our manager, like with Jol, he did so much to help give us our self-respect back and turn us into the team I want us to be... it’s not a dig at...

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    Why not? I could happily watch them not win away from home for 9 months.

    Manager watch: Jose Mourinho

    Looks like Levy played a blinder in terms of ambition and timing, with Arse binning Emery this morning. It’s the first time I’ve actiely disliked the manager of my team, which is weird to say the least, but with two wins on the board back to back (man I’d started to forget what it felt like...

    Player Watch: Serge Aurier

    I think it’s interesting that everyone in here is posting so negatively about that header/challenge at 0-0. For alternative perspective anyone watching on Swedish tv heard the commentators rhapsodise over the brilliant defending that challenge represented because it couldn’t be deemed a foul as...

    Player Watch: Hugo Lloris

    I think, and this is purely personal with zero grounding in fact, just gut feel... the problem doesn’t lie with Hugo, he hasn’t become poor overnight. I think it’s no surprise that when we had a settled defense of Walker, Vertonghen, Alderwiereld and Rose in front of him we were the meanest...

    Player Watch: Hugo Lloris

    Just reading this... I’m no more positive about him playing before Feb... lines like ‘some people may never regain full mobility...’ even from a simple dislocation, and from a complex one it involves surgery? I am not a doctor. I have zero clue. But it reads like a pretty serious problem for a...

    Player Watch: Hugo Lloris

    I got knocked off my bike by a bunch of deaf kids... didn’t hear me, were walking backwards to sign to each other. My arm did exactly this. That was 7 years ago. I still don’t have full mobility and my strength is probably 30% reduced on what it was, and it was my dominant elbow I broke. Was...

    The Mauricio Pochettino thread

    Levy’s face at the end... not angry. He looked like he was on the verge of tears. That leaves me wondering if he’s just done,

    The Mauricio Pochettino thread

    7 goals... utter collapse. I’m not one to hound a manager out, but this just feels like the last days of Joll all over again. Something is broken and this is a multimillion business, it can’t be allowed to stay broken.

    This is the funniest thing I’ve read on the Internet in months.

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - 31st July 2019

    I’m so very sorry to read this so soon after your last post, Mr Pink. It feels like there’s nowhere near enough time that has passed between then and now for you. Losing a parent is probably the toughest club many of us belong to. For me, nearly five years on, it can still feel incredibly raw...
