Pochettino Enters Sack Race!

So it’s happened. Older fans will recognise the title of this blog as a nod to a brilliant Ugly Inside front page after Alan Ball left for Man City, and much like that situation it is difficult as a Saints fan to understand why this has happened.

As plenty have pointed out, why should we be surprised that a man who entered St. Mary’s in an underhand fashion should leave it in exactly the same way.

My problem is never with people showing ambition, but presumably Pochettino’s performances at Saints have given his own self confidence a boost. Can he meet the unrealistic expectations of Spurs fans and chairman? 5th place won’t be good enough and right now they don’t have the squad to get any higher. Who will he bring in? When given big money at Saints he signed Dani Osvaldo.

All will be revealed soon enough, but he might want to take a look at the immediate futures of the likes of Ball and Glenn Hoddle after they left Saints. The grass isn’t always greener.

They've given us a 5 year contract, which will be a lovely payout just in time for Christmas...

  1. I am not to fussed with Pochetinno leaving it’s who may follow him that is more worrying…but why they would make a sideways move. It’s important now to make a strong appointment to give players, staff and fans the belief we are still moving forward.
    On a sort of connected note Chris, do you know how I can block the words Steve and McClaren from my Newsnow feed!
