    Levy's clever call on stadium naming rights

    Huh? That Levy is just waiting for an NFL franchise to first move to London? It might be a long wait - the NFL will only care about how much money they'd make, not how shiny the stadium is. Perhaps the whole country went 'NFL crazy' last weekend, but I didn't notice - I wasn't even aware the...

    I guess he can get match fit with these internationals.

    Would he bring Dr Eva Carneiro with him? I like her. That would seal the deal.

    Anyone can manage a team that are winning and full of confidence. Any half decent player can look a £70m player in that team. Picking motm is easy - you can make the case for any of them. This was the week MP, with his great ambitions, should have earned his money, when the chips were down This...

    Can't we get a court order then? That if he's not handed in his resignation by the 19th October then the court can issue it?

    Player Watch Player Watch: Eric Dier

    He looked like a player who has been sat on the bench all season, waiting to be sold in january. Dier was out of MP's plans, then suddenly he is thrown back in as the saviour. He was meant to fail, and MP didn't even get that right. I thought he made 1 or 2 early passes forward to Eriksen just...

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

    Sorry, I misread your post and I hadn't voted so the percentages were not clear to me. I tend to back the managers, but asking to do this immediately after our record defeat is a big ask. I've voted now as the players clearly want him out. And as I said before, if over 1/3 want him gone, there...

    It would be impossible to prove - he'd say it was the players. MP has £32m coming his way if/when he is sacked. If he somehow quickly gets a big job, then maybe that amount is significantly reduced. He'd be taking at least a year off, I reckon.

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

    A good fraction of that 60% would vote to support the manager even if we were relegated. They'd back him regardless as they feel that is their duty as loyal fans. They are not rationally weighing up the situation. So if Levy is using these polls to guide him, there probably will never be a...

    Sissoko questions Pochettino's tactics following defeat to Bayern

    I think it fair to say that the tactics MP employs have been totally found out. Every coach in the prem has watched the game 5 times now and while they wont have the quality of player to stick 7 past us, they'll get wins and unlikely draws, unless something changes. But tactics and formations...

    Player Watch Player watch: Jan Vertonghen

    The club surely only would have fined the players if they had had a fight in training. They wouldn't just withdraw a contract offer because of it. Whatever happened, Vertonghen was possibly concussed and as a precaution, he was dropped to the bench for a few games. I don't believe it would have...

    Match Ratings Ratings vs Southampton

    we've looked like we've been playing with 10 men all season. So we looked like we had 9 out there today, and if Southampton had any cutting edge, they would have won easily. But Ndombele worked hard and got little protection from a poor ref. Son and Winks were lively. We defended well or at...

    Pochettino: ‘nothing is broken’

    It was his best press conference for a while. If he stays focused with the players, then I'm sure they'll respond. If he loses intensity because of the other agenda's in his head, then we'll get more of the same.

    Moussa Sissoko: “I’ve learned a lot”

    Maybe it's more that everyone else has come down to his level! A couple of years ago, our game was so much faster and the passing and interchange hard to keep up with as a fan let alone a player. Now each pass in midfield has to be signed for in triplicate. It is fully documented. It suits his...
