Levy's; Top of the Pochs!

Levy's; Top of the Pochs!

Why can I now picture Daniel Levy with Tony Blackburn and Diddy David Hamilton?..

So it looks like we have decided that Mauricio Pochettino is the man to take the club forward. Perhaps not the choice of everyone, but for me, it's a selection that has many merits.

Sure he hasn't won anything. Sure his win percentage isn't outstanding, but it compares well with Rodgers and Martinez, who now look very good managers when given the chance to work with better players. Also, has anyone yet said anything but positives about him?

What he does appear to be able to do is make teams and individual players perform better, whilst making them work hard, but also play good football. Add to that a clear willingness to bring through young players and you can see what initially attracted Daniel Levy to him.

You assume he will want to bring in his own staff, which begs the question, as to what the future holds for Freund in particular. Will he remain as the No2 or move on? You feel that Ramsey has a decision over dropping back to development or joining Tim Sherwood at his next job and the same probably applied to Les Ferdinand.

I'm sure we will see Pochettino now take interviews in English, which is believed not to be a problem as he supposedly communicates very well with everyone at Southampton, but with Spurs, putting over his ideas and having the players once again embrace them, will be the key, regardless of anything else...

The man wasn't my first choice, however, I'll be 100% behind him. Few issues being he basically folded the FA cup last year in quarters when they were already safe in the league, his teams aren't that good in defense, and I dont think his big money signings are all theat...Will Pochettino inspire Lloris, eriksen & Vertonghen to stay?? Having said all that, his teams play very pleasing football, and I look forward to seeing it this season. I think he'll bring the best out of Lamela, this is his first Big club imo, and if Levy backs him, gives him the 2-3 years he needs before making a judgement as to how good he is, then I can see him doing well for us.

More relevant on this article

Really not sure about this one at all. Strangely enough it’s mostly the Tottenham Fans who appear to be against Poch. Everyone I’ve spoken to (city fans, Arsenal fans etc) seem to think he will do a decent job. I think that just sums up the trust we have in DL. I can’t for the life in me understand the selection of Pochettino. How did they come to the conclusion that a another young and relatively inexpericned manager will succeed where all other similar predecessors have failed. What is the thought process? I will fully back Pochettino (which is certainly more than our board will) but very much doubt that he is the right bloke to take us forward. I’ll be honest, I think the only reason Poch will be appointed is because he will work within a very strict budget and won’t cause any waves. Exactly what we don’t need. So basically it’s another season of DL beings chairman, manager, scout, coach and of course THFC’s no1 fan!!!

The English thing only effects the media most teams are made up of many different natioanlities who may speak enough English to offer a sound bite to the media but communicating detailed info and tactics probably requires translators anyway. The lad hasn't done badly with the Saints so now he is the answer to our prayers? I don't buy it. Of course as soon as he sorry if he gets the job then he's ours and I will offer him the same support and time frame I did for AVB and Tim Sherwood (which was more then Levy offered either) but I can't help feelling that the better candidate was FdB and he was also someone who demonstrated loyality to the club he was employed by what if Pochettino does well with Spurs over the next eighteen months and United, Monaco or PSG or any other get rich quick club come calling will he bolt on us like he has Southampton?

Well done OX...We've most probably just picked up the best premier league manager available. A very good one IMO to boot.

LOL!...FDB the saviour...Poch the useless!. What a load of tosh. No guarantees either of Poch OR FdB would succeed. Let's cut the crap here, Ajax had a bloody good chance of winning the league regularly. Vert's, Eriksen and Alderweireld all playing during FDbs 4 titles, add to this Klaasen(Arsenal linked) Fischer(Liverpool linked) Daley Blind(Utd linked) Siem de Jong, all current players.

Yes he's done well, but the players at his disposal are part of what should be challenging for the title season on season. I grant he still had to win the titles, but let's move away from meaning this makes him far superior than Poch.

I forgot the amount of times that it was said we had no playing style of late, not being able to see what we were actually trying to do. Poch has a style, one it is said we desire. Attacking football, whilst being only second to City for shots conceded last season. This has the making of a very good balance, great going forward, tight at the back, although still defensive work to be done. High intensity, desire and team work. Improving all areas both on and off the pitch. Crap it is not, worse than FDB...NOBODY can say. As for the titles...Well done Ajax and FDB, means nothing in the prem, for those of you who believe it does...I give you AVB. OH!...Hold on, he had to go according to some, he was playing in a manner totally opposite to Poch...Weird that!.

Good luck to whoever is in charge, if it is to be Pochettino then I believe he can do a good job if given time and if we are all patient. It is a gamble but going by how Southampton have played and set up the gamble might just pay off.

I'm just hoping the fans that didn't want him in the interview stage will accept the decision and get 100% behind him. In my opinion, Poch's biggest challenge will be to sort out the defence in the short term. I wouldn't blame him of he spent the whole transfer budget on a backup GK, one or two centre halves and a left back. That would get my immediate respect if I thought we were capable of keeping a clean sheet in any game. As for the rest of the team, I think Poch will simply do what he does best and get them all playing for each other, play a high pressing, passing game and hopefully get the goals flowing.

We haven't won anything for a while. We haven't qualified for the CL in a while. We haven't played very good football in a while. We haven't been very good tactically for a while. It's not like he has a lot to live up to. We Spurs fans struggle and suffer because we tend to keep looking at what has been instead of what is to come. Let's get behind Pochettino and hope the players and board do the same. He has clear ideas as to how he wants his teams to play and he seems to have sound tactical ideas and principles. He likes to get the ball down, press high and play fast attacking football on the floor. That's a good enough start for me. Having said that, this is a choice which Levy must be judged on. He's been in the last chance saloon since it opened. He has no more lives left.

Muttley of that there is no doubt but a quick glance at the poll to the right would suggest his honeymoon period is going to be pretty short and that a couple of early bad results could bring huge negative pressure to bare. I have stated all along that FdB is my preference but more importantly who ever gets the job has to be left to do the job for at least three years and let the club rise or fall on the appoitment of the decision makers.

The only thing I can think of as to why so many see FDB as the better option has to be his titles won at Ajax. Poch plays the same type of football as FDB only quicker, he too integrates the youth and develops them well, he also plays with the whole team having roles to perform at all times as opposed to a few flair players.

If we want to go down the FDB has won this and that as a player, I give you Mourinho. Argument ending. Therefore, it can only be based on his titles, which really is a bit strange when in a weaker Dutch league with arguably the best players and evidently has no bearing on the Premier League. As stated AVB won cups and title, where's he at?. Could it really just come down to something as simple as many have heard of the name de Boer, and Pochettino is a new name on the block?. Ever heard of Neil Lennon?...He's won cups and titles...want him?. I rest my case.

Guys, I don't think the general negativity aimed at Pochettino is necessarily, or mainly about the man himself and/or his potential to succeed or not with Spurs. It's because he doesn't offer any more hope for us than say, AVB did. (This is my feeling anyway). If he can manage to deal with the now blinding spotlight that will be on him and the increased pressure of being at Spurs and, the much higher expectations for success, then yes, he's the man. If he gets off to a bad start, he will be on a hiding to nothing and this is my main worry. It's not even about the style of football, it's more about coping with the increasing pressure associated with Spurs. He's not a step up and, with his lack of experience, he may just manage a few sideways steps at best. If it is to be you Pochettino, then I wish you the very best of luck. It's not your fault, that your not someone else... ;-) Up the Spurs!

Slurms - my 1st choice was Mancini and I still argue that letting AVB go was a mistake. What I like about Poch is that he is very similar to AVB in that he is organised and have a football philosophy that he likes to impose on his squad. I'm hoping the subtle difference is that whilst AVB's team went back to their "zones" and turned sideways or backwards, Poch's team will be more free flowing whilst keeping the defensive strength. I can't really comment on FdB, except for the player that I massively admired along with his brother. I read Wikipedia and any other source on him but haven't seen first hand what he could do with Spurs. His record at Ajax is great but I'm not sure whether they changed the whole setup or success 5 years years ago or whether it was down to him.

Cider spurs. Cider we could justify any number of managers using your terms of reference, but when we're going in blind and buying into potential, as opposed to the more experienced at a higher level guy, IMO it's easy to understand why people are underwhelmed by Pochettino and more seduced by FDB.

Cider both managers are young and are at the early stages of their respective careers, FdB was clearly the favouite from a early stage for the club hence the approach when AVB was sacked or left, when the season ended it became clear that there were only two managers in the running for the position and naturally people compared both of them. The style of play arguement is fine but that is largely dictated by the players available (look at Pulis!). Poch will have to change up his style of play because it is clear over the closing months of the seaosn that the other managers have figured out his southampton style. Possibly far away hills are greener for FdB but the list of accomplishments looks impressive stacked up beside Poch's. that being said Harry Rednapp's CV would still look very weak compared to FdB's and he did alright for us. Maybe Poch can be the new Harry rednapp.

MAN ON he took over from a manager who was loved at Saints. In the spot light he managed to calmly oversee a change in language, playing conditions and a relegation battle. He took that team under more pressure than most clubs in the league and bring Southampton out into a position they NEVER thought possible playing football they would not have seen in a age... Let him be judged by each match not this hoodoo noose hanging over the man's head before he walks through the door ffs!

Cider - I see FDB as someone who improved Ajax, who were faltering. I do not see Poch as someone who improved Southampton at all. From my investigations (I could be wrong) he did not improve Espanyol either. I also see FDB as someone who is used to being top. Being 5th at Spurs should hurt his pride. My fear is that Poch is not used to finishing 6th for Southampton nor Espanyol, and a 6th place finish may give satisfaction for him, if not achieving targets. FDB is more experienced - if not massively experienced himself. The AVB argument doesn't mean much to me, because one full season of football management does not make a manager. The tough part is maintaining success as players leave, age, get injured, lose form, systems and formations change throughout time. AVB had no proof of that. FDB has won consecutive titles where previous managers of Ajax did not touch him. My reason for not wanting Poch is not much to do with the above. It is gut feeling combined with wanting a different sort of manager. He reminds me too much of AVB, and I would prefer a more seasoned man this time round. FDB ain't that, but he fills me with more confidence, that's all. That said, FDB may have no interest to come here, and Poch would be mad not to. Desire to be here is important too.

Hang on a minute here. No body has got the job, therefore we are entitled to debate the pros and cons of anyone who potentially could get the job. Once they have the job the debate will switch to how they are doing the job but to say that we can't critique a manager because he is the current media favourite is a bit rich. The reality is that we are trying to polish the turd that is potential (for both poochie and frankie) and sell it as the magic bullet for success.

MAN ON!...On that basis Neil Lennon hould be placed in the same bracket as FDB?. Champs league experience, won titles and cups. Albeit not in the prem same as FDB. I'll ask, why is FDB considered the preferred candidate?, how many games has FDB managed in the Prem?, is he not considered potential?, he's more experienced at winning in his homeland, who's to say he won't bomb when moving abroad?, could it not be argued Poch is more experienced having managed in two different leagues already?.

both would come here with no guarantees and varying elements when considering experience. Both IMO only come with potential, I see them as equals, both bringing experiences in different ways. Nobody as of yet has been able to tell me why FDB is considered "the one" as opposed to Poch. All they keep pointing to is his titles with Ajax. Believing that means he is a winner. On that basis, let's pick any manager who has won titles or cups, again Neil Lennon. Of course not, but why?. It's the exact theroy many are using to display their wanting of FDB. Does not compute.

Neil Lennon took over at celtic when they were playing turgid football, he had a tiny budget with which to operate and had to rely on dveloping youth to fill out his squad. He completely changed the style of football Celtic play and made them far more competive in the Champions League then they had been in quite a number of years. Yes its a weak league but that only means they have waker players too. In the end he did as manager of Celtic what our last number of managers at Spurs couldn't do. He beat the teams in the league that his club should be beating! FdB has done this also, Pochettino so far has not!

AS muttley said above, the first thing he (or any new manager) needs to do is sort our pantomime of a defence out. It doesn’t matter how good Poch may be at bringing the best out of players, the majority of players we have on our books in defence are just not bloody up to it. Although Walker gets caught out of position sooooooo much with a bit of coaching he can be good. If Jan pulls his head out of his arse he is a bloody fine defender. The rest can all go IMO. If we don’t sign a decent LB and a decent CB then Poch (or whoever) doesn’t have a chance

I hear we have made an official bid for Loic Remy for the sum of £15m. This just compounds the fact that Daniel Levy is an utter Bufoon. We could have signed him FOUR years ago for half the price. The man has not a sodding clue.

I agree Slurms... Cider, Mourinho is one of a few top managers that proves to be the exception to the rule, when it comes to lacking any experience as a player. I have also used him as an example, in the same way, when bigging up AVB but, it's Jose's personality and sheer hard will to succeed that has got him where he is, as much as his tactical knowledge. He is a one-off..... Maybe Poch will be the next one-off. ;-)

Cider - I perfectly accept that FDB may be an "AVB", which is a guy that picks up the best team in the country and does what he should - win the title. Give Poch Moutinho, Hulk, Falcao, and perhaps he would do better too. But my gut is telling me that Poch is near his limit, and FDB no where near his yet. Put it this way, I would much prefer Poch to AVB. And Poch has 1.5 years of EPL experience, and could pull one or two of his stars with him. So not a bad choice in isolation. In the greater scheme of things, he is not what I want. But if he joins, I will obviously want him to show me that I am worrying for nothing!

Fdb has the job and the Poch rumours are only there to frighten Ajax into accepting the settlement offered by Levy.

Slurms of course winning should be a consideration, my argement however is that winning in a foreign league does not immediately mean a manager will win here. I just get the feeling to many are writing Poch off far to soon, all because FDB has won titles in Holland. IMO this should not be, nor you or I on anybody else for that matter can guarantee FDb would be better than Poch, or vice versa. I just believe Poch is being dis credited for doing nothing more than improving teams, developing youth, playing attractive football and wanting to manage our club. Yeah but FDb won titles...So what...So did AVB. Many hated the brand of football. One other thing I'd like to mention, FDBs brand of football is not too dis-similar to that of AVB. Slow in the build up. Great!.

I feel sorry for Southampton. They have had terrible chairman and debt in the past. They grind their way back by playing nice football, and developing young talent, yet their talent gets picked off and largely wasted (Oxlade-C - in particular & Walcott - plus just 5m for Bale....), and soon Lallana, Shaw etc...togo), and in the long run, I can see them getting the wrong manager in and go down again....

Always my no. 1 choice.He will surprise the Spurs sceptics by proving to be the best manager this club has had for 30 years.So let's welcome him and be patient.We need stability and growth now.No more flash Harry's,thank heavens.
