    Pochettino holds crisis talks with Levy as players brace for managerial change

    Good post, not least because you've considered what we do know about Daniel Levy and his initial understanding with Pochettino. Remember how not long after he was appointed so many rival fans and pundits were saying 'he has two years to...', when it was nothing of the sort? That irritated the...

    Next Spurs Manager (Now with groundbreaking 'Change vote' functionality)

    It wasn't bombastic Jim White who was doing the analysing or the considering—as if—rather it was Johnson. Calm, considered, freshly minted comment and free of the kind of cliches that derive from the far-more-common badly constructed questions and resulting bland replies.

    Time running out for Mauricio Pochettino

    If Wanyama has his wits about him he could well get another club in January who'd be happy to play him. I imagine that any fee for him won't be too demanding, given the terms on which Dembele, Janssen, Trippier, Onomah and Edwards departed for other clubs more likely to give them regular, some...

    Time running out for Mauricio Pochettino

    I think that Daniel Levy and Mauricio Pochettino cannot just 'wish away' the kind of player-attitude voiced by Danny Rose. However, they'll have discussed it, will learn from it for the longer-term and will just have to pay such players until the contract ends. On the plus side, and on that side...

    You're lucky. We can't easily get hold of loose tea anymore. It's all teabags.

    Time running out for Mauricio Pochettino

    I've never been to a press conference he's spoken at. So how long do they last? Do you ever get bored attending them? Are there things he mentions at them that just never get reported?

    Glen Johnson played with him at Stoke, sharing a dressing room and like all such players they were involved in regular training with each other. Johnson was very specific in his criticisms, measured in his assessment and gave several examples of why Berahino so antagonised other players in the...

    Hahaha. Now here is a classic quote; a collector's item.

    The Telegraph is particularly weak on reporting about Tottenham. For other media and then the usual social media bunnies to have so keenly fallen in behind their claim just makes it all the more amusing.

    They were relatively minor signings IIRC in the months of Harry Redknapp's court case, his subsequent acquittal, his interest expressed in the England manager job vacancy after Fabio Capello's departure —with the supposedly well-informed, knowledgeable football media saying Harry was his obvious...

    Next Spurs Manager (Now with groundbreaking 'Change vote' functionality)

    Schneirdelin, when considering leaving Southampton, wouldn't entertain any interest from Tottenham. He or his agent let it be known that for him it would be a choice between two European Champions League club regulars, Arsenal and Manchester United. He went to United, got relatively few games...

    Poch: In or Out? - You CAN change your vote

    Luckily Daniel Levy does just seem to get on with his job rather than perform for the media. Which is why on the rare occasion he does issue a statement or speak publicly it is of significance. It's bad enough Poch having to do press conferences before every match, and then almost always being...

    Poch: In or Out? - You CAN change your vote

    A transfer of Wanyama to Bruges FC, IIRC, had been set up this summer but late in the process he turned it down. He said afterwards that he wanted 'to fight for my place' in the Spurs side.

    Nice play for England from Harry Winks last night. He's deserved all the praise he's had since the match.
