Why does everyone talk like allegri isn’t a defensive manager?
I wish Barça could've done this with their coach!

And this is the moment where Tot goes back to being a mid table team
Poch made this small club relevant & made them compete with the big clubs & they had the audacity to sack.
The fact that Emery is still at Arsenal is INFURIATING!!!!

That Scottish guy is clueless. 😂

Does he even watch the Prem because everything he says about every club is ridiculous.

Allegri is just as defensive as Jose.

He says Rashford AND Lingard is better than Martial.

about time levy is listening to my ideas. i was the first to call the sack, hire me up if you want top 4, and a chance to make spurs a title winning side next season

i have the right transfer plan, philosophy, ideas, set up, and formation to take spurs back to top 3 status
Something tells me Jose is up to his antics with this ...
Spurs will soon be playing Sunderland again and I have always enjoyed those matches but they will not like the trip up north just to get beat again.

Yup, good luck finding a good replacement for a manager like Poch! Spurs just played themselves so hard!
The background is making me feel sick!

Damn..I thought he was gonna leave on his terms. As much as I hate Spuds, this is a massive disrespect after all what he has done for them.

Looking forward to seeing him as a pundit & understand how he sees football.

By the way i think he wanted to be sacked!!!
At least Poch will walk away with a multi million pound pay off & right into another job

Lol, Pochettino said it himself he'll never leave the club, so Tottenham decides to fire him..😂😂....
But in all seriousness, he's gonna be successful wherever he goes, and Tottenham have just fired their best manager, period...

''you have to spend money'': unless you're ajax

with such a youth training you'll be making money
Jonathan Doyle
Jonathan Doyle:
This was a shock when I first heard it but if you really think hard about it Levy had no choice. Poch wants out of Spurs he is looking at the vacant Bayern Munich job. Spurs have to act quick to get Jose in case Real madrid get him so really Levy has made the right decision as hard as that may seem. Poch wants to leave and will probably win the Champions league with Bayern. Jose will fit Spurs perfect .
yoo yoo
yoo yoo:
I’d be so upset if I was a spurs fan, I read that poch had a net spend of 200 million in 6 years. I think if he had got more money to spend that Tottenham wouldn’t be in this situation.

Weve got 5 Dembélés running around, so lets not tag nDombele as one as well 😂

Good ebening but I am still here😂
Jose Mourinho has entered group chat: "Spurs"
I love how Spurs have delusions of grandeur now but they sack the one person that made them relevant. Here comes another 20 years of mediocrity.
He's clearly fallen out with the players. I would say the results on the pitch are a result of that.
Robert Francis
Robert Francis:
The problem started when he played harry kane in the champions league final instead of the guy who got them there. Lucas moura. The players since then have not performed

I think that poch has took this spurs team as far as they could go. And that cl final loss knocked him and his teams motivation heavily. He needs to move on now

I think they just knew in their heart Pochettino gave up on the spurs project because of lack of financial backing

Remember Klopp's final season with BVB? And look where he is now. Pochettino will be fine, I just hope Tottenham will be able to recover their form like Dortmund have.

Mukesh Prajapati
Mukesh Prajapati:
Tottenham's greatest blunder ever
Gave him no money to improve squad he over achieved with the funds he had. It's the owners fault look at united they have spent almost a billion in the last 4 years.
There only going to give Jose the money they should have given poch
tshepo legodi
tshepo legodi:
I think it was clear that Pochettino was tired of being there, you could tell he was ready to move on he had taken Spurs as far as they could go. It's time for him to manage a bigger club like Utd, Madrid or Bayern
David Borkwood
David Borkwood:
Keep poch & get rid of the dead wood in January, then go again. Poch the best thing that has happened to this club
