Here’s a mental thought: if Poch did go, and Levy wanted someone he couldn’t get until next summer (eg a Nagelsmann or Rodgers), is there any chance we end up with ‘Arry in a caretaker role??? 2019’s David Pleat?!?

I mean our chairman did go out and get over £100m of incomings the summer 2017 and nearly £150m of incomings this summer pending the Lo Celso deal.
I'm not sure what worth there is in quoting this summers signings when our problems are pretty widely thought to have started before that but what interests me more is why you've left out the summer of zero, you know, the summer we made footballing history by signing absolutely nobody, an act of negligence bordering on the staggering.

It was pretty widely condemned at the time and those chickens are coming home to roost, the effect of that fuck-up should not be underestimated.

That failure to sign anyone-and whoever was responsible for it- cannot be underestimated in its role in creating a stale and jaded squad. It was laughably arrogant

1 source ( a club insider ????? according to the Daily Fail ) and all other media outlets jumping on the back of it
Does seem like the same 'story' going round in circles with no new information attached, or new sources, to the later info.

The mail running with identical story as well. To me it all seems complete bollocks! It makes no sense what’s so ever to sack Potch after the West Ham game if we lose given we have just had a two week break which would have been the time to do it if they were going to sack him! Not after the game directly after the two week break
Just playing devil's advocate here, but does it really make that much sense to bring someone new in while the bulk of your senior squad aren't even there? Wouldn't a new manager have less time to meet and work with the bulk of the first team during the int'l break than on a normal week?

Feels a little ‘no smoke without fire’ but makes no sense at all why we’d be losing Poch this week and not immediately after Sheff U, if it has to happen.

I think I’m on board with the Jose idea. Could be brilliant, could be a disaster, wont be average.

It makes a shit load of sense to me. I expect there are severance packages to be negotiated and renegotiated, as well as new terms and conditions to be established with the new manager and their group of staff. We’re not exactly decisive, comparatively speaking, in the transfer market, buying or selling so if it’s true that Poch is going it’s hardly surprising it didn’t happen earlier

New article with a whole load of nothingness really
Matt Law & John Percy seems to be waging a two man crusade with this. Until others join in with their own stories and not just rehashing this one then I’d still treat it with trepidation.

Edit: I see others have mentioned the times and mail running with it too. Sounds like it’s leaked out from the players if they’ve been messaging each other expecting something to happen.

Timing is irrelevant.

We've seen Levy take ages to get deals over the line and a 30m severance package to release a manager is not different.

Whether it's Adebayor missing all of pre season or sacking Poch on the eve of a Spammers game it makes no odds to him.

Let's see the next manager to get 4 top four finishes in a row and get us into champions league final on a next to nothing net so spend.

Let's see everyone's saviour, serial winner Jose do that. Never going happen, it's only downhill from now if we go down the road of getting read of the manager rather than backing him and getting ready of the players who clearly would prefer to be anywhere else than at spurs.
Fair point but with Poch continuing we aren't getting closer to repeating any of that anytime soon

There are a number of factors preventing Levy from sacking Poch. Firstly the level of compensation, then the fear he goes to Man U and finally the lack of available and suitable replacements.

How about the ones Pochettino apparently wanted that we didn't go for? Lallana, Schneiderlin, Berahino. Is it the chairmans fault we went for Aurier over Ricardo or Grealish over Maddison? I mean our chairman did go out and get over £100m of incomings the summer 2017 and nearly £150m of incomings this summer pending the Lo Celso deal.
No-one is blameless. Levy gets a lot right but he's not infallible. Look at the season that we needed a push to keep the league title momentum going and we got Nelson and Saha.

All the reports out their seem just to copying the telegraphs. Hopefully it’s just click bait for these websites.

We’ll find out if the players want him out this weekend then I suspect. If they put no effort in on the back of these stories then you can assume he has lost them. If they fight to win then he obviously hasn’t.
