Talk of Mauricio Pochettino potentially returning to Tottenham is continuing to gather momentum. The Paris Saint-Germain boss is being eyed by Daniel Levy, despite only being in charge for six months at the Parc des Princes. And comments previously made by the Argentine suggest a Hollywood comeback isn’t entirely out of the question.

After all this hype, it can only end up being Allardyce.

He's on my shortlist!

Here are the men I want in charge of the club going forward:

1) Roy Hodgson
2) Tony Pulis
3) Fat Sam
4) AVB (once again)
5) Tim Sherwood (once again)
6) Juande Ramos (once again)
7) Alan Pardew
8) Sol Campbell
9) Willian (as player/manager)
10) Jose Mourinho (once again- however this time I know it would work out; I think it's been long enough for him to make a triumphant return to the club his soul never left).

So yeah- whilst I'm praying for Roy, Allardyce would suit us just fine! Honestly, there is not one name from the above list that anyone could even question (at least in terms of getting us to where we want to be), so as long as it's a name from that shortlist then- IMVHO- we'd be set for decades...

Anyway- I suppose that now we just have to sit and wait...

I think Poch coming back would eventually end in tears. What is he going to do any different that would be any different from his first stint?

Having the full backing of Levy to buy and sell players in successive transfer windows would be something positive.

Whoa...hold on. Were Poch's initial targets financially realistic in those successive windows we didn't sign anyone. I genuinely don't know.


Think we were informed via ITK, that Poch was indeed offered alternatives but refused to budge on his first choices.

Every manager we hire will eventually end in tears regardless because they'll end up leaving or getting sacked either way.

We don’t really know with any certainty what went on behind the scenes with his targets and alternative targets etc. Most of that is just speculation. But what we do know for a fact, is that the record inactivity in three successive transfer windows hurt Poch’s ability to move on deadwood and bring in fresh blood. Kind of all ended with a fed up, disenchanted Poch, with half the squad looking much the same. That was not exactly a showing of good faith and support from the club towards Poch was it. So if he comes back, he’s going to need more support from the board. Levy just needs to take a step back from most footballing decisions.

Oh make no mistake. No signings in those windows was inexcusable.

Always have to keep a squad fresh, but our failure to act when it was clear one or two could've made a difference, was nothing short of idiotic imo.

Whoever was to blame, it baffled me beyond belief.
