Spurs - Champions Cup of Europe Winners 2011
I was sure Van Gaal was included in a poll somewhere but I couldn't find it. I remember at the time it seemed people were crying out for LvG to take the job. I thought he was a dick then, and he's a dick now. I'd rather be 6th playing the football we are, with the boys we have on the pitch, than have to watch Van Gaal's superstars put in mediocre after mediocre performance. Sometimes, not always, but sometimes it's not just about results. With him at the helm they are becoming as detestable as Liverpool.Remember at the time De Boer was nearly everyone's first choice, in fairness most people rated Poch, I would have been happy with either as per below quote but definatly glad Poch was choosen. In the early days to my shame I was also quite open to Van Gaal but so glad we dodged that bullet, great record but a total dick. Got to give Levy credit this time, he made the right decision.
''FDB is probably most people's first choice, would take Pochettino as well. Really not sure about Benitez but if we can't get either FDB or Poch would take''
