Got your attention, didn’t it? I’d genuinely love to know if there is any correlation between ‘Poch/Leave’ and ‘Poch/Remain’. Not just along the lines of getting that bloody foreigner out’ or ‘I’m scared of change’, but more of people think a step into the unknown is preferable to riding out a storm. I’m sure there’ll be a lot of shouting, both issues bring great division, and you’ll be making probably correct assumptions as to my motives. Others will wonder what the fuck is going on now. But if you could pop a vote in the poll my curiousity will be well and truly satisfied, ta. Go on, humour me.

I'll be the first to give an explanation for my thinking and await all the negativity that it'll bring. :cautious:

Being an old man I can remember when UK was a very industrious country with factories and other revenue/work availabilities were well known. With markets around the world, and also when THFC won the double and European trophies.
Whereas nowadays things are entirely different on both issues.
ATM I cannot see any resolution to either.
As for myself I would like to think that we could remain in the EU and win trophies. but I think that neither will happen as things are .
So I'm for Brexit and change at WHL.
People of my age tend to believe in our ability and not rely on other nationalities to make us a Great Britain again.

Bring on all the arguments against my thinking but it is what it is.

MY opinion.

I don't think 4 options captures all the nuances, which was part of the wrong in the Brexit referendum in the first place too. Given that, I'll try the method of elimination to arrive at my vote.

I'm an anti-brexit extremist. I think brexit is the stupidest geopolitical act of any Western European country in modern peace time. The easiest, swiftest, most stress free and most cost efficient solution is to cancel the entire shit show. So that helps me in reducing number of alternatives from 4 to 2.

Then comes the issue of Pochettino. It is a bit different. As important as it is for us and the world at large, I don't see it as a full geopolitical catastrophe. As for brexit too, I dearly wish we were never in this situation in the first place, we should never have gotten here. So in that sense, I won't call it my preference that Pochettino goes, because I would prefer for it to not be an issue. However, I've thought for several weeks, long before the topic was subject to daily discussion, that this is Pochettino's last season with Tottenham. So maybe I'm victim of a bit of confirmation bias. I also think that my preference is of little importance. Because if the situation has gone far beyond repair, there is only one solution whether I like it or not, and that is for Pochettino to go. And if that is the case, if he is to go, I'm not one for tinkering around, and I have zero faith in the January window. So if Pochettino is to leave, regardless of whether I want that to happen, what I would like is that he goes sooner rather than later and that the process isn't unnecessarily prolonged. I'm not a fan of artificial life support, and especially not in a world of sports in which every single smug fucker is very, very well off.

So in a roundabout way, I suppose I arrived at how to vote, even if my intentions behind my vote might not be reflected in the alternative I pick.

The most interesting poll I’ve seen on SC. Kudos!

I’m for change, so goodbye Poch and back off Brussels.

Partly it’s change for change’s sake, creative disruption, ‘n all that. But mostly it’s theory-based. Both Europe and Poch are fundamentally flawed, in my opinion, and while I can’t know that what’s coming next will be better, I do believe that neither would be capable of the change that I want to see. So they both have to go.

As like the elections, the remain is split amongst the two different options

Whilst the leave voters want to "get Brexit done" and realise that "Leave means Leave", so goodbye poch
