A lot of sources seem to suggest the most likely time Poch leaves is in the summer.

Now why on earth would we not just part ways now so a new man can use this season to settle in given its a write off practically anyway.

We're either behind him and he's committed to the long term or we make the change now.
Its almost as though the sources are mere speculation.

I would be very interested to see this poll run again with the limp-wristed cop-out options such as "Sissoko" and "keep Poch" removed tbh.

Is that possible once a poll has closed?

What is going on Today?
If Poch goes there are a few tickets going on ticket site.
The same problems with the squad will still be there, regardless who they bring in. Levy fucked up the season he done nothing, even though Poch by the sounds of it wanted to stick with what he had, rather than accepting downgrades on targets.


I cant see how Levy lets him go, to be fair. It would be a knee jerk reaction.
A knee-jerk reaction would be sacking him after we got knocked out of two domestic cup competitions in the space of a week, 9 months ago.

At this point Poch has more than had the "chance to turn things around" which people are now demanding he gets, blissfully ignorant to the fact we've been in that phase for the best part of a year now.

Based on his Bournemouth side being distinctly average, and any success they have is down to massive shithousery. Its like when Moyes had 10 years of "stability" at Everton, with one good season where they got 4th. Everyone misinterpreted that as he'd be good at a big club. And when he got his opportunity at Man Utd he was out of his depth. Man Utd are still reeling from that season.

At the moment, Pochettino is overseeing a mediocre, probably mid table season. You ain't improving that with someone like Howe.

If you're going to have to hire a new manager, after half a decade of a manager who has established us as a Champions League side, then you need to go larger. All in for Jose imo.
Think you're being harsh on Howe. He took Bournemouth from League two to the Prem and doesn't appear to have huge funding behind him. His team play good football and are now a steady Prem side. Not sure what more he could at Bournemouth.

Whether he is the right manager for a bigger club I have no idea. Some managers are right for one level but not another. Same as I believe Pep is very good at working with top level players but is probably not right for lower clubs.

But essentially it is possible to say Howe isn't right for a top club without writing off what he has done at Bournemouth.

Why don't you make one yourself, instead of being a passive-aggressive little fanny as per?

I preferred the original post you deleted where you called me a **** for asking if a poll could be extended, but there we are.

And, two reasons:

1) It would be stupid to do that if it was possible to extend an existing poll, as per my query
2) It would be poor forum etiquette to start a duplicate thread before finding out whether it was possible to extend an existing poll, as per my query

You whimpering bell shaft.

One thing is for sure, whoever gets the job next will tell us everything we need to know about Daniel Dinklage. Mourinho will show some ambition, Howe will show its all about another 'project' and winning things isn't a priority and Hughton as caretaker will show that we haven't got a fucking clue. Anyone but a proven winner and I don't see how anyone defending Levy can, at the same time, complain about not winning things, we just have to accept we're not about that because it'd be obvious the owners aren't either.

Just for a change get someone in with gravitas, someone who's won things and lets see how it pans out.
Yep.

Having said all that I’ve still got a tenner on Howe.

Had to update as "****" could be seen as member abuse, rather than a playful little jibe as intended. I can't be getting banned just as shit is about to hit the fan. All of the nonsense options were added at the request of other posters, I was merely a conduit for the will of Spurs Community.

But, no - I can't extend or update the poll. I tried to, I failed.

I know, I've followed the thread since the start - I wasn't holding you personally responsible for people being wet lettuces and voting for the incumbent to be his own replacement...

Totally agree. Show some ambition and get Jose or similar in now, and give them a decent budget. Then when he leaves (hopefully picking up the odd pot along the way) you can start again with a Howe or Nagelsmann type. The last thing anyone needs at Spurs right now is a 'new 5 year plan' IMO.

Surely because any manager (at least a good one with his own ideas) would look at Levy and realise he's getting fuck all in January so might as well wait for the summer?

And then get fuck all before deadline day anyway.

If anyone can, Levy can.
In fairness to Baldilocks, his history of appointing managers is pretty strong. There are only one or two instances where you could say we downgraded.

- Hoddle
- Santini
- Jol - a downgrade on Santini at the time, on paper, but surpassed expectations
- Ramos - an upgrade on paper
- Redknapp
- AVB - see Ramos
- Sherwood - a downgrade
- Pochettino

You would hope that, wherever we go from here, we would look to appoint someone who is a clear upgrade to Pochettino on paper, such as Ancelotti, Mourinho or Allegri.

Nagelsmann and Howe are great managers and in reality could do a great job here, but they're also more potential than finished product, which I'm not certain is what we need right now. We could essentially be stepping back to 2014 with that kind of appointment, in theory.

I very much doubt Howe will replace Pochettino. If that link (Levy considering him) in fact did ever exist beyond a catchy newspaper piece, I thinks it’s dated information and not reflecting current state.

I think Levy and Mourinho would work surprisingly well together for a time, as they are both experienced sly silver foxes who know how to perform their act. Both of them know what they’d get in the other person, and I think that would be liberating. No projects, no false promises, no posturing. Just two seasoned operators in a weird tandem.
