Mauricio Pochettino

Started by: fossil (6914)

I am not sure my intrusion on the Man Utd board is welcome, but I am puzzled as to why Pochettino is the popular choice of fans, having seen that a Runners up in the Premier League and a losing final in the Champions league is all he has on his CV after 560 games as a manager.
Giving the preference is for a top name manager and having had Van Gaal and Mourinho, I would have thought that Pochettino's inability to bring the best out of arguably the best front three in Mbappe,Messi and Neymar, in world football, would leave him under qualified in dealing with the power brokers in the United dressing room.
My solution would be the same as Wigan rugby,a complete clear out of the old boys club ,Ferguson who must be a distraction for any manager included, and start afresh with the Ajax guy and any new staff he brings.
And also tell any agents to do one until called, because they are a blight on any club!

Hello ( fossil) I would feel your comment's and remark's are more than welcome ,and WHY NOT? They are your views and should be respected ,i for one will respect your opinion's . I don't know if you have been reading these threads i have been one calling for a change at O/T after reading your views i believe you pose some very interesting points on the possibility of going for pochettino . I also welcome your comments on what WIGAN RL have done too. Having been a Ferguson admirer for many.many years i am now coming round to think that maybe he is interfering a bit too much too. Finally i am with you on these fat cat's agents who are spoiling our beautiful game ,as for the next one i'm undecided thus far .. Tonight's game will be very interesting to watch ....

Whups, not great I don't think, but he had a lot of influential friends. I think they are all still there!

Fossil,
I see Mark Hughes has thrown his hat into the ring. Hughes, Blanc, Bruce, Carrick but Rooney has said he isn’t interested. Spot the link.

Whups,I think not great means just that! So why do you think he was employed at OT then?

broady yes but I would go for a fresh face.
If it was ex MU then I still think Steve Bruce would do ok.
I don’t care really as I am more interested in my local team tonight at Cambridge. Long way to go on a Tuesday evening.

Golden bear,thank you for your comments.I am not as you can tell a United supporter,but not a great admirer of Ferguson either.
I read a book by Michael Crick ,a very eminent journalist and United supporter,called “The many sides of Alex” I think,and it paints a different picture of Ferguson to the popular version.

I was going to ask if you were going tonight? Whilst not blaming him in any way for the current dire situation I think SAF should be kept aside from any decision making. He had his day. It reminds be of when Matt Busby finished, His shadow seemed to hang around OT for a long time.

broady ,it’s a struggle getting to home matches, never mind away butbIncan watch on my computer for a fee.
Incidentally,I am not sure whether the Glazers are all that bothered about success.United is a cash cow to them. Bad times and results and the share price is low,appoint a new big name ,share price up and sell a few more shares at inflated prices seems to be their game.

Just settle down and see how they play tonight. Hope Latics win.

Just seen them line up and I see Lindelof, Fred, Martial and McTominay. Be surprised if they get anything here.

Good win. Pretty lifeless up to the substitutions. They made the difference. Good build up and goal by Sancho.

If they do get Pochettino I sincerely hope EVERYONE learns to spell his name. Write it on a piece of paper somewhere handy.

LG said mourinho would not win title at united and he was correct
LG said ole would not win the title at united he was correct
So following him will state here and now the next manager will get sacked for not winning the title..

The game plan was clearly a defensive one G B .
Thought we were luck at times in the first half.
Could easily been down by a couple of goals .
Villareal clearly tired a little which brought on Bruno and Rashy to exploit this.
Perhaps this will be Carricks plan now but a sterner test awaits v Chelsea so we will see.
Keep the faith.

WHUPS /MR.GRIMSAHW ;; What do the both of you think about this latest piece in today's paper ,concerning UNITED maybe turning to the idea of having an interim boss in one Ernesto Valverde . Surely this will be a stupid thing to do . IN as much they say they cannot get Pocketing until later, well arn't they going to be in the same position next MAY? With regards paying PSG compensation? What alarms me was the report about a question which was """ WHAT CAN UNITED EXPECT ""?? The reply was

alan i think if they fall for it the way they did with ogs the season as i see it is over . we need a fresh look at things with more experienced eyes & it,s only for 6 months . it cant get much worse so why not ? .

The whole affair re ole and the ensuing speculation on the next coach has been handled very poorly G B .
We can only guess who is pulling the strings .
I am a big admirer of dutch football and the legendary Rinus Michels who introduced "Total Football "
So E T H would be my choice and by all accounts is favourable to coming to O T .
Having said that the P L is a different ball game to the eredivisie but i was impressed the way he changed things last evening v Besiktas so he could fit the bill .
Keep the faith .

Cant argue with you regarding Fred G B .
Mind you he has won a dozen caps for Brazil this year so they clearly rate him .
Bit of a dodgy period though when he was banned for a diuretic offence .
Think he is an honest trier but not up to whats required by a long way.
