    Poch is now openly stating he would like to return to Paris at some point.

    I think he's taken Spurs as far as they're going to go, it wouldn't be a bad time to leave.

    I think it's now only a mater of time before he leaves. Last summer probably did not help convincing him with Levy not getting any new players. There are some big clubs with lot of money sniffing around (Manchester United, Real Madrid and possibly Bayern). I think even some Spurs players might feel it too (Eriksen, Vertonghen, Alderweireld)

    Doubt PSG is interested right now. They love Tuchel. Last summer was the good timing. Don't think PSG regrets so far. United is a possibility however.

    I’d love him at United but I can’t see him being interested unless he’s willing to build a team again. He’d have the money and backing of spending he never had at Tottenham though which is a plus.

    Totally. Poch wants a step up in terms of spending, that seems pretty clear.
    Now maybe he also thinks about two things :
    1- his image as Spurs coach would be troubled by him leaving for United.
    2- he could have a chance to sign with Bayern or Real next summer, which is two huge opportunities that don't happen every year.

    Some random people on twitter speculating that SAF might come out of retirement to coach for the half season. Now I don’t believe this at all and I don’t expect/want anyone to believe it. I just want to dream.

    If only Manchester United's ownership and upper management didn't also wish this could happen, they might be able to get their act together.

    Still, great entertainment for the rest of us.

    Part of me would love to see this. Part of me also doesn’t want to see this happen because it’d just be a tease and I couldn’t handle him leaving again :laugh:

    United just posted an article on their website confirming OGS as new manager and then deleted it right after.

    Zidane seems the most appropriate person to take over United long0term, Blanc would also be a coup. Who they take on short-term to ride out the season seeems material only insofar as keeping the players they need to keep happy

    Is it just me or does mou and the US mens team seem like a match in heaven. I know they just hired a new coach, but mou in the states would be an awesome spectacle to watch

    Yeah it seems like OGS and Mike Phelan as his assistant.

    It's just you. Mourinho wouldn't touch something so terrible.

    That sounds like an awful match. USMNT needs to play possession, not defend and hope for a draw.

    USMNT? Man, the World hates us more than I thought. Trump would approve though.

    I think Mou might target Portugal, but he'll have to wait.

    It would be awful, I wouldn't even want him coaching the Columbus Crew.
