    Trophies aren't the only measure of success.

    I think Poch is one of the best fits for United out there. I just find it highly unlikely he’d join us.

    Spurs have done ok under him, nothing really special, they certainly didn't overachieve.

    lol.

    They've overachieved massively given their budget.

    Every other top 6 club spent more in the most recent summer window that Spurs have in the last decade combined. Hell every single PL squad except Watford, Palace, Newcastle, and Leicester spent more in the summer than Spurs have net in the last decade combined.

    Correct. For the likes of @Pouchkine who don't watch matches there are also stats.

    When you consider that Craig Bellamy was once a second round pick in a draft, it isn't all that ridiculous in the grand scheme.

    You may not want to hear it, but I would say it’s even money he manages PSG at some point.

    You're too young to be so forgetful as to forget your own pick.

    Oh I said it in the past. He was loved there in Paris and he loves the club and the city. But maybe in a few years. Right now PSG probably feels they have a better coach.

    His pedigree, no matter what, is too good for a club like them to overlook.


    They also have the resources to where he could spend whatever he wants to win it all.

    I don't think he's high profile enough for them to consider him over Tuchel.

    To be fair, last year and the year prior Firmino was definately more impactful. This year his form has taken a dip. I still rate him a lot because he is not your typical striker that is poaching goals. He creates space for other. He is one of the reason Mane and Salah can score so many goals. He is also more commited defensively than any other striker I've seen. I still think he is underrated outside of Liverpool because of his poor scoring stats but believe me if he gets injured there is no doubt that it would be more devastating for Liverpool than losing a guy like Mane or Salah. He is the glue to the team offense.

    Right now no, but if they crash out of the CL I think the rumor mill starts up.

    Sure. But it'll take a massive collapse to get rid of Tuchel. His players love him. NAK loves him. Except if they fail against United, this season will be a success.
