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

Lads the last time Mourinho was in a final was in the Europa league.

Spurs are going to end up like Man U
Claude Makelele
Claude Makelele:
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.
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

This has finished me off, can’t wait to wake up and see levy has agreed a £50 and tube of paprika pringles for Eddie Howe... f### sake
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.
lol Poch aint worried, that dude getting a MASSIVE job. Barca should be calling.
Carlos O
Carlos O:
I think it's a good for him, he'll get payed & now he can look for a new job Manchester Utd need to make their move asap

pastore perplexity
pastore perplexity:
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
Loftus Blake
Loftus Blake:
Literally nothing holding players who want to leave there now.
pastore perplexity
pastore perplexity:
if levy wants my philosophy, formation, set ups, and transfer plan for next season, you might as well hire me up now and ill secure you top 4 this season to compete for both the CL/PL in 2020/21

if i speak... mourinho as my inside assistant would be nice, or vice versa

Danny 906
Danny 906:
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.
