    Poch's presser: Every word of his rants about Son 'dive', Michael Oliver & more

    Also, Michael Oliver was the ref in the Chelsea 1st leg in the League Cup where right at the end he gave a free kick against Eric Lamela when the Chelsea defender tried to obstruct him and fell over. Lamela was through on goal.
    He blew whistle even though they had VR working and it should have been 2-0 to Spurs.

    Since Poch is currently opting to use the diamond formation a lot I wonder if he has had discussions like this with the players

    Oh I dunno.
    Saves me buying a paper as back page would be all I ever read. Big writing. Lots of pictures.

    Poch has been making it count and we've come through some tricky matches, and very nervy periods.

    Its totally obvious what the manager has done with regards to getting the best out of our players in his time here, and improving them, and I read a lot of stuff about how he's worked miracles with what he's got etc.

    While thats a compliment to Poch, its a travesty to the players, and in my opinion its far more of a case of people constantly belittling and underestimating our squad and listening to the neuaseating media tripe all through summer and first half of the season about our rubbish squad.
    Poch isnt Jesus....its quite simply Davies, Dier, Sissoko, Trippier, Aurier, Foyth, Sanchez etc are not as shit people say they are.

    Even Llorente has stepped up, beyond my wildest expectations for one. Amazing what game time can do eh.....thats not a Poch miracle, simply forced into it and only goes to show what he wasted for a year and a half to be frank.

    I said it two years ago, and I said it again this season. This is the second best squad in the country, and now the pundits and some of our own are finally cottoning on...37 injuries, no signings, Dembele sold yet somehow the "Spurs have no depth" mantra has been laid to rest.
    Even a few questions asked about Liverpools depth....hold on...what? Didnt they show us how its done in the summer?

    Remember this?
    Remember people telling me Fabregas and Barkley were better options than Winks too.
    Look at our season, and the players who have dug deep and got us there.

    Relatively fully fit all season and with a home, Poch delivers the PL title. Had we stayed at WHL one more season, we'd have already won it. The summer will need a bit of re shuffling, but anyone writing off this squad (again) is fairly clueless to be honest.

    Cruyff really was a different mind. Some people are just so far beyond the regular football man.

    Cruyff, Bielsa, Sacchi...

    I love that the video is 4 minutes 33 seconds long as well.

    It's the minor details

    So I saw an article this morning about United prepared to pay the fee required to get Pochettino, and it did make me wonder why managers tend to be a lot cheaper than players.

    The Express claim £34m as the fee (and I know the article is going to be bollocks), but if we take that at face value, that seems extremely cheap for someone so integral to our club, considering that your top players are going for £100m+ in todays markets.

    they are just trying to equate what he is supposed to earn if he stays his entire contract. Subtract time used up of it and then go "Well. That's all United has to pay. Spurs can't say no".

    Yes we can. Offering to pay up someones existing contract doesn't make it law that we have to agree. We could ask for a compensation fee of whichever amount we deem appropriate. We could for instance say pay up Poch's and his coaching staff's contracts and give us 50 mill on top or fuck off. I know not likely in the real world but the power is in our hands.

    Never could understand the whole manager thing....
    Gets fired = gets paid a shit ton of money.
    Resigns = gets no money, but gets to take up a new job wherever he wants with immediate effect, with the victim club getting some compensation in the process, but never enough money to compensate for the trouble it causes.
    I’d like to see a club being given more protection on this, Currently if a manager has, let’s say 2 years remaining on his contract with his current club but then decides he wants to manage “FC whoever the fuck they are” he can simply resign and take up his new position, with some tribunal deciding on compensation for the agreeved club...bollocks to that I say.
    If a manager resigns he should not be allowed to manage another club until his contract would have expired with his current club PERIOD!!......Unless the two clubs can agree on compensation, ie; if ”Manager” had two years left on his contract but Barcelona wanted him and ”Manager” wanted to go to Barca, then, and only then, if the two clubs agreed a “transfer fee” would “manager” be allowed to start working with Barca.....

    You can't just resign and start working for another club. Resigning doesn't nullify a contract, you would be in breach of contract as would your new employers if they have knowledge of said contract.

    Ole seems to be doing pretty good so far, I don't know why United fans are still dying to get Poch
