    This is in Poch's hometown of Murphy. Apparently the Gazza's are a footballing dinasty.

    Ah the cunts at Sky edited the bit out before...


    Shreeves asking about the Utd job again. Looks like Kane and Sonny came up to put a stop to that line of questioning. Sky are a shameful bunch of Utd supporting arse dwellers.

    Going by the Google Translate of this, he's Mauricio's cousin and manages the local not-very-good lower league team.

    It's really not that complicated Sammy. You need to let this one go. John ThomasJohn Thomas has made it clear. He rates Poch extremely highly, therefore he's glad he signed a contract with us. But he also thinks that if he doesn't get the spending money that he keeps dropping very heavy hints he'd like, and offers from uber clubs keep coming in, there's a chance he may choose to walk away from that contact.

    I don't agree with everything JT is saying, for example, I think one of the reasons Poch is not being more assertive with these statements is that he's aware that a major reason we didn't buy in the summer was not Levy, but the fact that Poch himself had used up about 150m in fees and wages on in HG players Sissoko, Aurier, Moura and Llorente - none of whom are world beaters - and there was no room in our squad or wage roster for any more non HG players.

    I also don't agree with anyone that doesn't understand our financial model, and blames Levy for "not putting his hand in his pocket" that's just failing to grasp how we have been, and are run, like a normal business.

    But I also don't understand people denying that Poch ever says anything contradictory, or off message. He frequently complains - in his very charming and humble way - that he's not competing on the same terms as other teams and that he would like to have more money to throw around.

    He's a cute operator. On one hand he says "I'd like to be here for 20 years" then in the same interview says "I must ask Wenger how that worked out for him". He's basically saying what all sides want to hear. The Spurs fans can say "see he loves us" everyone else can say "clearly he realises how badly it ended for Wenger despite his loyalty, turning down big jobs etc".

    I think we've got a great chairman who's dragged this club from laughing stock to one of Europe's top 10 clubs. I think we've got a great coach who's taken us to one of Europe's best footballing teams.

    But it's crazy - for either side of this debate - in this industry to hang your hat on soundbites, especially when what they are saying is very ambiguous or contradictory. Would it surprise me if Poch was here next season? No, not at all. Would it surprise if he wasn't? no, not really. Dis is fooobal.

    Oh come on, there are few things worse than the old "X is responsible for all the bad transfers, Y is responsible for all the good ones" thing.

    To the extent that Poch runs our recruitment policy (which I think gets overstated), he's spent a microscopic amount of money on a pretty decent set of players all told. It's hard to find players good enough to play for Poch's Spurs for anything short of a king's ransom.

    He comes across as less bitter about being sacked than Jamie Redknapp does.

    Which is fucking weird.

    Ah yes, there can't be any other reason that a footballer living in Barcelona could go to watch a Champions League final on his doorstep.

    As usual, Poch being classy and telling a nice story given Solsjær is his opposition manager on Sunday. Got to love how this will be focussed on more than the 20 years/whole career at Spurs comments.

    Would be amazing if the club planned for something like this to happen everytime a journo mentions Man Utd.

    Sissoko could interrupt the next interview by standing in front of camera and delivering a heartfelt rendition of I Will Survive. Then the next time, Ben can pop in and tell us all how to say rude words in Welsh, etc.

    Still don't think they'd take the hint tho!
