Koeman can shut the f**k up. Hypocrite. Poch never uttered a word about Schneiderlin and has remained classy throughout, but Koeman has been increasingly vocal about both Schneiderlin and Townsend. Getting on my nerves. Can the window end already?

Poch is funny, playing with Danny Rose

“The manager texted me at 10 past nine and said ‘can you come to my office?’ I was thinking ‘what have I done?’

“I went to his office and he sat me down and said ‘I’ve got something to tell you – we’ve accepted a bid, we’re selling you’. I said ‘no you’re not’.

“He said ‘yes it’s true’ and one of the other coaches walked in and said ‘have you told him he’s got to go?’

“But then after that he told me he was at the Milton Keynes game the night before, against Man United, and he heard a rumour that I might have a chance of being selected [for England]. Later on that night the England manager called me and he verified it.

Abit more from the interview which i think is quite important and has looked true from his PL games so far.

“He’s made me better defensively, tactically and he encourages the full-backs to get forward as much as possible,” said Rose. “Since we’ve been back, over the eight weeks or so, I reckon I’ve got a lot better defensively and tactically.

“Concentration’s one thing we’ve looked at. Sometimes I lapsed in concentration last season and I might have relied on my pace to get me out of trouble. But the manager’s made me a lot better tactically, and whenever we do lose the ball he wants it back as soon as possible, and it’s good.

“I thought I started last season well under AVB [Andre Villas-Boas] and then I got injured and I never really managed to get match-fit properly.

“Even this season, our nutritionist said that I’ve lost a bit of weight since last season and I didn’t really realise - but I can feel it when I’m out there playing. I feel strong going into 70 or 80 minutes, whereas last season I was tiring.”

Haha that's awesome
Classic haha. He obviously likes Rose, saw him joking around with him last night as well.
I'm glad he's got rose playing well,so far I'm over the moon with Poch,picking the right teams,saying the right things,and the football has been brilliant,only early new doors but the signs are great
+2
Saw this. lol. Pretty funny.
People seem to still think its a matter of time until Davies comes into the team, however, with the mistakes cut out, Rose is a superior player offensively and defensively in my opinion.
Sigs or Ade for Fantasy F captain?
Aguerro

Dier
Group C
-Tottenham
-Besistas
-Partizan
-Asteras
Not that strong of a group, we should qualify. Looking forward to Besiktas. Away game against them would be crucial.

We'll be marching to Warsaw! COYS!
If we don't walk that group I'll be worried
+1
you should be able to get through that group

watch out for besiktas their pitch is crap :P but they will come at you quick and fast
Yeah I think besiktas were unlucky the other night,but they don't shoot or cross
Besiktas are awful, I watched both games. Arsenal just played badly both times.
well our squad is still having to gel but don't take them lightly paddy BA is no push over it looks a lot better after leaving Chelsea
+1
They trounced Chelsea in preseason too, definitely don't take them lightly

http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11095/9445393/europa-league-harry-kane-earns-mauricio-pochettino-praise-after-tottenhams-win

-Poch really does value youth progression, and I like how he is playing all the right players at the right times as well. Dier has been forced to step up due to injury to Walker, and Naughton suspension. But at the same time Poch has still rotated the defenders well, getting everyone fit and working them into the system.

Will be interesting to see who plays against Liverpool.


http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11095/9445124/premier-league-tottenham-midfielder-lewis-holtby-wants-regular-first-team-football

-Holtby would obviously be frustrated by lack of first team football. But despite Poch's limited use of Holtby I have never had a moment of "where are you not playing holtby?!". I haven't had any qualms with the teams Poch has picked and so I cannot disagree with this article really. Silver lining is Holtby admits his first choice would obviously to be playing for Spurs.

I just can't see him starting in our squad unfortunately.

http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11095/9445035/transfer-news-tottenham-want-danny-welbeck-on-loan-but-end-alex-song-interest

-I never had any faith in getting Song, but I hated the idea we were after Welbeck. However after learning that it would only be a loan deal and Poch isn't interested in signing him permanently at all. Then it might not be a bad idea.

+2
I swear every time I buy Welbeck in FM he scores a shedload of goals. Obviously not necessarily the best recommendation but still true ;)
Looking at Poch's reign so far:

Games played: 9

Games won: 8

Games drawn: 1

Goals scored: 26 (3 goals per game)

Goals conceded: 9 (under 1 goal per game)

Looking good Poch, looking good (JUST DON'T SELL HOLTBY!!!)
+3
Yeah he's started well,the players are learning and I think when you have a manager who focusing so much on a philosophy then the players buy into that
Well, AVB had a philosophy and that didn't work out too well. They key difference is that Poch has a philosophy that makes sense.
+3
AVB is just a s**t man manager (as it stands) and he is actually very defensive. HIs teams have been made to look a lot better thanks Hulk, Falcao, Mata and Bale. Take out these players and I don't think he would've done as well. Poch is well regarded as a manager who looks after the players buy also has a philosophy and understands that philosophy in detail, plus is willing to adapt.

It's early days, but I think he was a great appointment!
+1
Miss
Expected a miss,lol
lol.
Steady first half performance. Great save from Romero although I don't think he's a very good goalie in the grand scheme of things. Sandro reading the game well, Dembele pushing for a place against Liverpool. Davies not creating much space for Lennon although maybe Poch has told him not push up the pitch much.
Chiriches making the runs, but giving away the ball too much. Kaboul commanding the back line. Townsend not impressing.

Basically what I expected.
+3
Well said. Paulie looking decent also. Moose/Beast/Lil Paul still quite rusty, yet this is very promising.
Paulinho played much better second half, but passing range is very limited. Moose and Sandro played very well tonight, the former especially is not rusty at all. The last 30 minutes Dembele looked like he got tired, but apart from that he was excellent.
Yeah I thought Dembele and Sandro controlled that game very well.
Is this a game to see who is going to be sold?


I miss holtby
Possibly, if your a Holtby fan i'd be worried. .
Your not a Holtby fan Kalopsia?
:'(
I like Holtby but he lacks that bit quality, I haven't seen him do anything that's made me go wow. I'm not say he's crap but he's just decent, after tonight's performance, players like Dembele and Sandro looked really good. I can't see him getting a look in now. .
Dembele and Sandro are completely different players. Holtby should occupy the no10 spot and be rotating with two other wing-forwards. He hasn't been given a chance yet to prove himself in that system due to Eriksen shining.

His quality comes in his tenacity, his ability to thread an inch-perfect ball between the lines and his recently-shown goal-scoring ability. Given time, he could be one of the best performers in our squad.

The Europa is his chance to shine in his main spot and then potentially start some of the premier league games as part of that rotating trio. When that happens, I guarantee he will be genuinely challenging Eriksen for a first team spot.

And did none of his perfect through-balls to Defoe last season make you go wow? Nor his stamina? I'm not sure you're giving the guy credit.
+2
I'm not doubting his qualities, I think he has a huge amount of potential but I just don't think he's going to get that chance. We'll have to wait and see, I just have a feeling he'll go. .
I'm with Paddy on this. We haven't seen the best of Lewis just yet.

Under AVB, much like Siggy, he was too eager to impress. They both probably felt as if they needed an assist and a goal in order to start more often. Add to that being shipped off by Sherwood to a Fulham battling relegation.

A more relaxed and less insecure Holtby will do wonders in that #10 role.

It doesn't help that he's usually only played with the "B Team" in secondary competitions, or as an impact sub when we're either trailing or shutting up shop. He simply needs a run of games. Besides, having already sold Siggy, who would compete with Eriksen for that spot?
@Kalopsia Sure, but then who fills in Lamela's position? Lennon? Townsend? Holtby provides us with a lot of options that one wouldn't typical get with a single player.

EDIT: Meant to be below Kalopsia's. Stupid forum code.
Lamela would fit into that number 10 role easily
If he provides us with so many options why doesn't he play then? That's sort of the point I'm trying to make, no Eriksen or Lamela in the squad today and still he doesn't get a look in. There's obviously some facet of his game that managers don't like, this could be the 3rd spurs coach that hasn't promoted him. It just reads transfer all over, Poch said he'd like to get the squad numbers down and I think Holtby could be one to go.

I agree with what you've both said, I see the potential there. If he's keen to sit on the bench then great! But even he's said he wants to be playing. .
+1
We don't have anyone even remotely close to what Holtby offers as an impact sub. But it seems that he wants to be playing regularly, and I'm incredibly saddened by what's happening. He isn't a player who can start over Eriksen, Lamela or Chadli for us as yet. I hope things somehow magically work out and he still remains.
@Kalopsia

Who knows? Maybe because he's already submitted a transfer request. AVB didn't play him much, then Dimmy ships him off to a shitty Fulham side that sacked the manager who signed him for someone he previously didn't get along with. Who wouldn't get disillusioned? 5 different managers in 1 1/2 years (including Fulham) doesn't exactly spell out "You have a future here."

So he didn't start today. It's only been 4 games in all competitions. Even Bobby hasn't started in the EPL. Doesn't mean he's not in Poch's plans, does it?

Kid's frustrated, and rightly so. If he gets sold without a replacement, we'll regret it come mid-season.
I guess we'll know more in the coming days.
f*****g Townsend, at times he just slips back to his old habits.
