Wasn't this the manager who took them to the Champions League final, and was touted as going to places like Real Madrid?

Typical Spurs, first sign of a wobble, eject button hit.

Madness.

This clearly goes a lot deeper than is apparent I feel. The guy is absolute class given what he achieved firstly working for Levy, didn’t spend a penny in two windows, reached a CL final and played some fantastic attacking football. If I was Woodward I’d snap him up, no compensation payment and the perfect personality and character to lead United. If only we could get him...

Not an attractive team to watch these days, no away wins since January, 11th place in the calander year table, 20 points off the top this season, 7 points off the bottom, unhappy squad.......

It's been over for a while, saved only by a flukey run to the CL final.

Once the players realised he couldn't get any of them a pay rise, they stopped playing for him.

He simply had to go.

Hilarious listening to the play station genre Spurs fans complaining he never won a trophy whilst overlooking the fact he had zero money to spend yet competed respectfully against Klopp and Pep... idiots

The only fan moan I've heard is that his selections might lean toward changing the team regardless of how they're playing to bring in key players who hadn't had a game for a while.

It was not entirely a surprise, but the timing is a bit strange , was he pushed or did he leave?

Talkshite reckon it is Maureen next for the hotseat

Perhaps it shouldn't but it does feel a bit surprising. Who'd be a PL manager?
Mind you, for the money, who wouldn't..
This is either going to be very good or very bad for us on Saturday. I mean a lot of us felt it was going to be very bad with Poch there, so...

That is a crazy decision. Wonder if Jose is lined up.


I certainly hope not.......

The thing about Spurs is that they have won nothing. If they get the trophy pig Jose, that will change very quickly.

Laughable that some on here think Poch would come to us. 🤣

Don't expect Ironing Board to come on here tonight. He might be a bit too busy sorting out his new contract..

He's had hardly any cash to spend in the last 2 windows from memory. Harsh.

He'll go to a bigger club and do well that's a definite.
