Would like one of LVG, De Boer, benitez, or ancelotti - I know im probably dreaming about two of them but they have all won things.
1. Could be explained by a few things. Like the fact that the Southampton squad has almost 0 depth, but sure, that is a negative.A few more for the 'con' section:
Zero wins gained when losing a game - shows a lack of ability to change the course of a game when things aren't going well.
Southampton managed to score less goals than goal-shy Spurs this season.
Not a big enough name to persuade players to stay or join.
Never managed a team with expectations of success.
Won't establish a rapport with the fans if speaking via a translator.
Pochettino looks like Sam from the Lord of the Rings films, he is obviously the better choise.Torn between who I would prefer from Pochettino and Benitez. Head says Benitez obviously but part of me thinks we would possibly miss a trick by not going with Pochettino. I don't think it's too big a risk as there's no way he would be terrible, he's proven himself in the league.
As I see it, Benitez is likely to do a very solid job without doing anything majorly inspiring. I doubt we would be spectacular but he would undoubtedly get us challenging for the top 4 imo and we'd play organized and effective football. His style isn't boring, but we wouldn't be the most exciting team in the league either.
Pochettino could be better or worse, and it's hard to know which he would be.
