Poch Apoplectic, But Publicly Gracious

Poch Apoplectic, But Publicly Gracious

Make no mistake, Pochettino was left raging after the Danny Rose ‘bombshell’.

The culture that the gaffer has sought to engender at Spurs is one of camaraderie, esprit de corps. All for for one and none for disappearing off down to The Current Bun to bemoan only earning twice in a week that which an ordinary man takes home annually.

“He apologised to the club and to the chairman, the management, his team-mates and the fans. That I think was good. I was a player and sometimes, after seven months that you don’t play, you’re a little bit frustrated for different reasons.  For me it’s not a big issue. 

[The disruption] was more outside the club. The players were really calm and we were very calm. Sometimes you understand the frustrations for some players. In the end it was his opinion and then he understood that he maybe needed to apologise to us. I think that is very good for him and the club.

I forgive that and now it’s for me to move on. He needs to be focused on being fit as soon as possible and trying to help the team.”

Danny Rose is now on a very short leash. They all are.

Not because Poch is a company man towing the company line, but because he genuinely wants to build something decent, something honourable at Tottenham. Dissent is anathema to that.

Rose’s idiocy has not set anyone back but Rose.

The kid is a dumb-dumb and Poch is beyond furious that anyone at the club believes his vision has been compromised.

Poch has played this down, but only a fool would mistake this entire scenario as a mere slap on the wrist exercise.

We’re left with question marks over the relationships between our playing staff and the management.

There are a number of guns against Levy’s head at any one time. None are ever held by the Danny Roses of this world.

    Ok, his opening credit is scoring with an overhead kick, looks 10 times better than Wimmer & I’ve got a semi…

    Agreed. Looks like Wimmer is ‘orf.
    Apparently the Colombian is right footed, primarily a CB who can play RCB or LCB and is comfortable at RB too. Most versatile I must say. With Tripps and Wanyama out, we can have Verts, Tobes n Davyboy (I refuse to call him Sanchez) when playing 3 at the back, freeing up Dier to partner Moose (with Winks as cover coz Moose can’t play twice in a week). Dier drops back when we revert to 4 at the back.
    Problem solved.
    We’re supposedly in for a midfielder (presumably Barkley) AND a forward too. I wonder who that might be. Hmm…

    • BabaSpurs🎱 August 12, 2017 at 8:43 am

      But £35mio for an untested import is pretty baffling though. Oh well, in Poch I trust.

      Beware the Ides of March.
      (Soothsayer, Act 1 Scene 2)

      Men at some time are masters of their fates.
      The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars
      But in ourselves, that we are underlings.
      (Cassius, Act 1 Scene 2)

      • David Dillenberg August 12, 2017 at 12:39 am

        The Caesar play is more focused on the character of Marcus Brutus who has to face the dilemma of choosing between loyalty to his dear friend Caesar and his patriotism for his country Rome.
        Perhaps the most famous Brutus quotation is that “Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more”.

      When viewing giphy image/video double click normally will copy.
      Once copied you should be able to double click when in TBH message box to paste. Or when viewing giphy
      image click the forward arrow to send as email and copy that link . Then paste a required . Hope this helps .

      • AntSpurs August 12, 2017 at 12:43 am

    I see Palace signed (loan) impressive young RB from the Mancs (Timothy Fonsu Mensa). Rose could have had his move north (closer to his Mum!) and we could have had TFM and Shaw covering both FB positions. A dream I know but would it have been that impossible to do something positive?

            This guy is one of the highest rated young defenders in world football. Last i heard he was off to Barcelona. The last season he was the first Ajax defender since Vertongen to score more then 5 goals in a season. There was an article the other day where Ajax fans say he is miles better then any defender they ever had, including Toby and Jan

            • marsinho August 11, 2017 at 9:42 pm

      • marsinho August 11, 2017 at 9:15 pm

    I’ve been hanging in the closet for three days now. Already, something doesn’t smell right. I’m never going to make it to the January window unless we move the closet outside in winter. Rapid freezing might arrest the smell, or it might just attract coyotes. I’m assuming we haven’t signed anyone yet. I’m not missing anything. I have us down to lose 1-0 to the Geordies in the first game in the Ronglish league. The wifi isn’t strong in the closet, but the smell is. Pessimism or closet mortis? I say mothballs. If we sign someone I may have to come out of the closet, which may be a shock for the wife.

  • Willie! August 11, 2017 at 8:00 pm

    Rose was right. Right to say it, and right in what was said. I fully believe that multiple teammates hold the same view, and told him so too. Might not have been a “applause in the dressing room’ thing, but I guarantee you half the squad think the same.

    Make no mistake, Poch is calm because he’s off to an actual top club in the near term. He’s proven his worth beyond any doubt, and any top club looking for a new manager has him high on the list. If we come 6th or something this season, none of those potential suitors will fault him, they can see as any sentient being can see, that our dumbass incompetent chairman is the hobbling the team and in turn the manager’s ability to achieve. And that hobbling is what Rose rightly points to, transfers to build a world class squad and wages to retain world class players.

    If we are lucky, Poch will stick around through the first season in the new NFL gladiator arena/concert venue/soccerball stadium before he’s off. Probably depends on how long Mourinho stays at United. Poch won’t go to Barca, but you better believe he’d consider Real, Bayern, United, and possibly Chelsea, Juve, Atletico. If the bald clown keeps it up, he might even jump at the chance to go to Roma, Milan, or Dortmund.

  • Ufluckinplic August 11, 2017 at 7:53 pm

    Playing devils advocate didn’t dele or Dier say a few months ago that Rose was Poch’s favourite. Maybe Poch asked him to air this view? As for this transfer window it is the same as every previous one. We are in for Barkley and Siggy and probably a few others, but this is where Danny Boy gets a stiffy with his brinkmanship. He’ll try and get opposing teams to get so desperate to sell they will accept his price. Problem with that is with the new tv money many clubs don’t seem desperate. Everton could sign Siggy and not budge on the price for Barkley, this then leaves Levy staring into the abyss and instead of paying up and giving Poch the player he wants although at the end of the window he can’t handle being out thought so goes and Googles some useless crap in France. Expect a rollercoaster at the end of August as usual.

    Rose has fallen into that category of senior player, who thinks he’s the “dog’s bollocks”. This entitles to say what he wants, look for the final big pay day and take his foot of the gas. We’ve had them with Adebayor and BAE for example.

    When Poch arrived at WHL we had serious issues with senior players and it has been the youth at this club that drove us forward. Rose will be 28 next summer, in my opinion his best days will be behind him. If some mug punter wants to hand over £50m for him then get shot of him.

    He never denied he said what was printed in the Sun. He said those things. He meant those things.

    He can’t be allowed to leave this summer and he can’t be rewarded with a new contract, that simply sends out the wrong message.

    • caveman August 11, 2017 at 6:53 pm

      100% right ANW. He’s toast and no mistake. Poch doesn’t do impudence of any kind. Fuck him, he has to play until next summer and then ditch him. No forgiveness for a cardinal sin like he has committed. He’s a traitor and nothing else. Little numb skull twat.

              If he only plays 50% of the games his salary is really more like £120k a week. Why did he sign that contract less than a year ago if it was a piss take? I accept your point about parity and there are a core group of players who’s wages will be reviewed. Just don’t think Rose is one of them.

    • MiT August 11, 2017 at 6:56 pm

      I agree with the article sentiment that Rose was just foolish, and did not think things through.

      He has managed to draw all eyes onto any negative aspects now and later, including his age and his penchant for injury. He effectively has placed himself under a magnifying glass, which in most likelihood going to burn him.

      I honestly do not disagree with much of what he had to say, as they were things Levy needed to hear. The method of delivery to Levy, however, was absolutely awful.

      I think he does his penance and moves on, but he has made his own forward progress a tricky business.

      • Alwaysnextweek August 11, 2017 at 7:07 pm

        He busts a gut. He will get into England squad and there will be lots of suitors. This will be good for Spurs too.
        The alternative is he plays the spoiled brat and we could have another wage thief on our hands. He won’t go running to the press about being under valued he is then.

        • MiT August 11, 2017 at 7:21 pm

          When he finally retakes the pitch, he will be a 27 year old man coming off of a 7 month knee ligament injury. There are now already articles being written advising Man U that he is damaged goods.

          Any injury this coming season dooms him. Every poor play will be magnified and remembered over any of his strong play. Rose could make one glaring mistake against multiple phenomenal plays in a match, and the mistake will be the one highlighted. He has made it quite difficult on himself.

          Meanwhile, it sounds like the other lads will carry on dancing… for now, at least.

          • Alwaysnextweek August 11, 2017 at 7:26 pm

            He is injury prone. 85 appearances in 3 years(which would be a possible 150 I guess). So you are correct another injury will have the rich boys asking awkward questions.

            The more you think about this the more stupid he has been.

    • Nick August 11, 2017 at 7:39 pm

    You alright Harry, I also agree with that. Need a lie down now.

    Rose has an overvalued sense of worth. He moaned the same at not getting past Benny. He is probably sad he is missing out on bonuses because he’s signed off on the sick for 6 months. Must be tough for him.

  • TheCincinnatiYid August 11, 2017 at 6:28 pm

    I have got to think there is a lot of tension around the club, and more stupid outbursts would not be surprising to me.

    Two years ago, with some modest adjustments, Poch put together a squad that chased but could not catch Leicester, and won no pots. Last year, with some more modest adjustments, he put together a team that chased but could not catch Chelsea, and won no pots.

    This year, with no adjustments he and the lads are expected somewhere way down deep in the hearts of all good Spurs fans to win the league and a pot or two. It is a lot to ask, especially by a stingy, self righteous ass to do all that with no help from him or the board whatsoever.

    We all want them to win–but does management? Like HH quoted a few days ago–they are being asked to ride into the valley of death. . . .etc. Taint right, and the current policy will backfire in a number of surprising ways.

    • McG ⚽⚽ August 11, 2017 at 6:33 pm

      At the mo there are no expectations from the fans, pressure’s off in that respect. I have a feeling we’ll be signing a couple of real decent players, Poch is way too relaxed!

    By creating such a differential in wages between Spurs and the rest smart arse Levy has created a very serious problem at the club.

    If He doesnt solve it the rot will set in pretty rapidly.

    • David Dillenberg August 11, 2017 at 6:11 pm

      Surely all clubs have the same problem?

      • WitTank August 11, 2017 at 6:14 pm

        Im talking about the top 6 or 7. Spurs are way behind. Levy thinks He has been smart but unless He can bridge the pay gap expect several departures in 12 months time regardless of whether the Wembley experience works or not

  • Matt August 11, 2017 at 6:00 pm

    I reckon you’re spot on with every word of this. I may be wrong but if you look at Townsend, Lennon, Bentaleb, I don’t see Rose in Pochs long term plan, or any way back. Top manager and class act but there’s steel in that man and I think Rose has blown it. Maybe not now but I think our boy Rose will be playing up North and it’ll be Pochs choice, not his. Until then Rose can avail himself of the top class medical facilities THFC provide for the poor unepaid, unappreciated lamb.

    • Jim,Newry Spur. August 11, 2017 at 6:06 pm

    Pooch has to state all is forgiven and all is well because we all know all is far from well and all is far from harmonious within the playing squad and between Golam and Pooch. Whenever a player has stepped out of line it is usually the death knell for them at the club and I suspect that Rose will have an extended period injured now and will be farmed out for big bucks to one of our competitors at some point. This club is in a state of freefall and unless Levy brings in some new and quality players before the end of the window I would suggest he builds himself a bullet proof box at Wembley

    Poch looked like a man on guard in his press conference, less of the usual charm and more of the bit between his teeth ready to get on with the job ahead.
    Hopefully Rses idiocy has shaken everyone up into a siege mentality and a determination to show they can be winners this year.I full expect Kane to come out in beast mode on Sunday.

    (on another note: Joey Barton reckons that the Barkley deal is all but done)

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? August 11, 2017 at 5:35 pm

      Didn’t koeman say this morning there’s bin no bids. Everton close to siggy so whether it depends on that. Can’t see levy getting it done if Chelsea are sniffin about.

      • TopOfThePochs August 11, 2017 at 5:40 pm

        Koeman wouldn’t say a deals agreed until it imminent. All the Chelsea talk is to try to nudge up the price. Why would Barkley want to go there, other than money, if he actually wants a career? He’s a young lad still and know Poch is the man to unlock his potential.

        Im sure the Siggy deal is closely linked. They’ll have two figures pretty close together at the point and payment plans hashed out then it’ll be down to a final agreed figure and payments.

        Unlike ourselves Everton want a direct replacement in place rather than leaving themselves exposed.

        • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? August 11, 2017 at 5:45 pm

          Siggy will be at Everton within the week. If levy can’t get Barkley over the line after that then he may as well drive down to the coast and walk into the sea.

    • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? August 11, 2017 at 5:27 pm

      • gloster1861 August 11, 2017 at 5:34 pm

        Just read the last blog. Seems that Rose gave an interview, the Sun either put words in his mouth or invented the context then timed the publication to come out just before our first match of the season.

        It’s almost as if the Sun has an interest in wanting us to start the season badly.😤

        • digiyid August 11, 2017 at 5:37 pm

          we are the biggest threat to spoil their great Pep and Jose season..So what you do is try and unsettle the club you still fail to take seriously..I will be honest and say Levy dealt with it in the most gracious and clever way.
