Crunch time in Spurs-Poch saga

Daily Echo: Mauricio Pochettino Mauricio Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino’s future as Saints boss is expected to become clearer this week, with Spurs set to accelerate their search for a new manager.

Tottenham sacked their previous coach, Tim Sherwood, within 48 hours of the season ending, but a replacement is still to be appointed at White Hart Lane, writes GORDON SIMPSON.

Pochettino, pictured, is the odds-on favourite for the job, but the north London club have so far held fire on making a final decision over who they wish to install.

It is understood the delay had partly been down to Spurs remaining intrigued by the situation of Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid.

There were strong suggestions he would be dismissed had his side lost Saturday’s Champions League final to city rivals and newly-crowned La Liga winners Atletico Madrid.

However, Real’s dramatic extra-time triumph in Lisbon will almost certainly have assured that Ancelotti’s job at the Bernabéu remains safe.

With that situation settled, the indications are that Spurs will now attempt to move forward with the process of appointing Sherwood’s successor.

Pochettino is the firm favourite, but is not the only person to have been considered.

The other names seriously linked with Tottenham have been Ajax’s Frank de Boer, although it is said Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has gone increasingly cold on him, and former Liverpool and Chelsea boss Rafa Benítez, currently at Napoli.

Behind the scenes, Saints have for some weeks been well aware of the possibility of losing their manager to their Premier League rivals.

For their part, they are understood to have offered the 42-year-old, whose current contract is due to expire in a year’s time, a lucrative new deal to keep him at the club.

There still remains hope that he will sign that and stay at St Mary’s, but the longer Pochettino has put it off the greater the sense of unease has become, with the feeling being that the Argentine is waiting to see what develops at Tottenham before committing himself.

Saints midfielder James Ward-Prowse has admitted Pochettino’s departure would be an enormous loss.

“It would be a major blow to lose him – all the players love him,” he said.

The 19-year-old added: “None of us want to see him go. He is a fantastic manager and he has done really well.”

Saints winger Omar Rowe, 19, has signed a one-year contract extension with the club.

All the indications so far are that Mauricio will stay with Saints. He is planning for next season. So many of our players have urged him to stay. Nicola Cortese said in a recent BBC television interview that the old Saints five year plan ended in 2012, when Saints achieved promotion to the Premier League. A new plan then commenced. Southampton FC is still progressing that plan, to which Mauricio is obviously still committed.

Mauricio Pochettino, unlike former Saints manager Hoddle, has no previous history with Tottenham Hotspur. He is, no doubt, well aware of Daniel Levy's tendency to sack Tottenham managers.

The only indications that Mauricio will become the next Tottenham manager are all coming from the media's daily bull manure.

Mauricio Pochettino is Saints manager and he will still be Saints manager next season.

Onward and upward the Southampton Way. Tottenham's way is to sack managers!!!

Rejected by Van Gaal, de Boer, Ancelotti, Benitez...... so they go for their
5th choice, a manager that has caused a split within the Spurs board.

The writting is on the wall Poch. if you fail to improve things at Spurs (and I think their have reached their full potential) you will be fired with your reputation in tatters, if, by some chance, you achieve some sort of success you'll be poached by a big club.
This is a sideways move, wait until a real big club comes calling and then you can leave with our best wishes....... going to Spurs will leave a sour taste in most Saints fans mouths.

Do well and in 3 to 5 years time you could be offered a really big job, not be be pushed through Levy's revolving door.
Your job is safe hear; you are popular with players and fans alike; your influence in the overall running of the club will be much more here than you will ever get at Spurs; and you will have a better chance of a Champions League place than Spurs if you keep the current squad and build on it.

I agree with costa gaz, spurs have reached their full potential, they do not have a great youth setup like ours and their chairman is a trigger happy power hungry egotistic moron. Our youth setup is fantastic, we have state of the art training facilities and just a couple of english players! A move to spurs would be a disaster for poch, under pressure from day one, expected to win every game, get into the champions league and probably to win it aswell.
A few signings for the saints, we all have opinions of who and what position, and we have a strong squad. I really think (hope) Gaston will come good this season, he will take the attacking left side and make it his own, until j-rod comes back after christmas! but i think j-rod will try and be the central striker and eventually take over from SRL. Sam G will learn so much from playing with Rickie, and i feel he will be moulded into the SRL type of player, as in the complete striker.
Plus we have so many youth players coming through, i would like to see Reed get a few more games this season, maybe from the bench and def in the early cup games.
But back to the main topic, Poch deep down knows that staying and bringing through the young players and building on what he has got already is the right thing to do.

The clear out is nearly done with Guly released plus 4 or 5 others on Free transfers - Fox on a free is OK but I hope that we have a large % sell on fee for Tom Leggett & Isaac Nehemie to Aston Villa and Andy Robinson to Bolton. Would be embarrassing if they made it and moved for a big fee.
Only really Osvaldo to deal with but could be used as a player plus cash deal for a top player that we do want.

From what has been said in the past surely the board would not give permission and let MP walk away just like that
If he does go something must have gone seriously wrong for MP to commit what could be career suicide.

That is not the way to negotiate contracts. Please rest assured that Saints and Mauricio are in negotiation. An announcement will be made at the appropriate time.

I think all we fans would be happy to hear good news within 48 hours about Mauricio staying with Saints beyond next season, but contracts usually involve lawyers, whose timescales are often quite slow.

We must be patient, even though the lack of information coming from the club is deafening and even though all this not knowing what might be happening is so very frustrating.

There is, however, one good sign. Mauricio has not signed for Tottenham. He is also still under contract with Saints, so I doubt that Saints have even given Spurs permission to talk to him.

I still reckon Mauricio will stay with Southampton FC.

He is wIthout doubt our BIGGEST ASSET. If we lose him, we can kiss goodbye to breaking into the European places next year.

If Adam and Luke had come out and CATEGORICALLY stated that they were staying, i'd feel more positive about our chances of keeping hold of Poch. And MAYBE if Poch pledges his immediate future to us, it COULD sway Adam and Luke a bit!!! These two soap operas effect one another!!!

He'll be looking for proof that we aren't going to be a club that CAN'T hold on to its talent. If he saw proof of that he'd be more inclined to stay.

You are correct in a normal world, but this is football.
The likely events will be that Levy will speak to Mauricio's agent first and if he shows interest then Spurs will then need to ask Saints for permission to speak with him because there is still a year left on his contract. This may already have happened.
Saints will then have to make a decision because it means that Mauricio is not happy with the contract extension Saints have offered.
If they say No, Mauricio will have to do negotiations through his agent to the point where he will resign and sign about the same time.
If they say Yes, they are accepting the probability that he will go.
Either way it is Mauricio's decision.
What Saints can not now do, is to do nothing by letting his contract run out because this will mean that he will leave at the end of it or before. This is the worse case scenario because it would totally destabilize the club and some players will demand to go.
Therefore if Saints cannot make him an offer that he will accept then, in the best interests of the club, it would best to replace him asap.
Hopefully he will see sense and agree to stay and then the situation does not arise, but whatever it does now need to be put to bed soon.
So come on Mauricio it is make your mind up time.

I hope you are right and you seem to be an optimist as I am but with the silence deafening it is also very painful also it would be surprising to all the Supporters that MoPo would abandon a 5 year plan that he agreed with Cortese only 18 months ago, if he did leave he'd have to restart which could take 2 years and that would not suit the very impatient Levy

As far as I understand it, the contract has the equivalent of a 2 million pound buyout clause, but Pochettino can't talk to Spurs (or any other team) without Saints' permission, so, if he wants to go, he will either have to pay it himself or get a non-football related person/company to pay it for him.

Yes, like persisting with Du Prado on the subs bench, using an interpreter with the media when he can speak good English and conceding penalties to Michael Owen.

Yes, like persisting with Du Prado on the subs bench, using an interpreter with the media when he can speak good English and conceding penalties to Michael Owen. Actually, apologies for the flippancy, he is a good manager but I reckon Saints could do even better, as they did when they got rid of Adkins.
Then, who do you suggest?

Is it groundhog day? Good question Elsass. If it isn't, it soon will be, and if it is, then yesterday it can't have been, although tomorrow might be today's groundhog day, in which case, today could well be yesterday's groundhog day. But then, if that's the case, tomorrow would surely be both today's groundhog day AND yesterday's groundhog day, and I'm not sure today AND tomorrow can both at the same time be yesterday's groundhog day. Maybe Confucious could shed some light on the matter because I'm now more confused than Alicesdad. And, as I was just as confused yesterday, today must be my groundhog day ...... I think!

I hope that helps.

Thought for today (and maybe other days as well)

After the jury had found the defendant guilty of murdering his parents, the judge turned to the man and asked if there were any extenuating circumstances that might allow him to show clemency in his sentencing. The man raised his head, stretched out his arms, hands palms up, looked up to heaven then looked at the judge and said, "Your honour, I am but a poor orphan and with that as my background I cannot be held fully responsible for what I have done. I deserve mercy."

Good attempt at counter-espionage there Saint D, but I’m afraid we’ve been rumbled and the enemy know he is a good young manager on a sharp upward curve. I don’t see anyone out there that I would want in charge of us more than Mauricio.

Assuming all the rumours are true, can you take over as manager and almost every position in the team and on the bench? It looks like our future might depend on loyalty.

Malcombe, ta for the thumbs up. I reciprocated.

You're right that I am confident about Mauricio remaining with Saints.

I note your caution about the potential for contracts being broken, but Mauricio himself has already said he has one more year left on his current contract. I think you and I are right in being optimistic.

Assuming all the rumours are true, can you take over as manager and almost every position in the team and on the bench? It looks like our future might depend on loyalty.
If we assume that all the rumours are true, almost every one of our players will have to turn up for at least 2 different teams; some will have to play in various different leagues as well.
But we'll probably be able to run a small African country with the money we'll get.

I thought he had already got back in two weeks' time. I blame the Bermuda-Guly triangle.

Meanwhile, I think we need to take our minds off things and I've been thinking back. Can anyone help. I can name the 12 players who were in the team at Wembley '76. Those 12 must have played most of our matches that year but which other players played in the 76 cup run and/or during that season in the league?

For example, who was our reserve keeper?

The only two players I can think of from that time are strikers Pat Earles and Austin Hayes.

No comment .
Just had a look at THE LIVERPOOL ECHO . They are worse than ours , they seem to be after every player around. With Clyne i think the total they will buy from us is FOUR.Interesting though a lot of their supporters reckon our players are not worthy of wearing ther clubs shirt. I expect every DE in ENGLAND are batting with the same bat hoping to strike lucky with a headline.
Think i'll have a cup of tea and a tea cake and wait for our club statement.

Sorry to be negative but I can't help thinking that if Poch wa going to sign a new contract, he would have done so already. Not only that but if he wanted to stay, both Poch and the club would have stopped all the speculation a long time ago! Why is poch now 1/3 on to be next Tottenham manager on Sky Bet? That's significant in itself.

They might be interested because he's extremely good at other things.
Yes, like persisting with Du Prado on the subs bench, using an interpreter with the media when he can speak good English and conceding penalties to Michael Owen. Actually, apologies for the flippancy, he is a good manager but I reckon Saints could do even better, as they did when they got rid of Adkins.
Good attempt at counter-espionage there Saint D, but I’m afraid we’ve been rumbled and the enemy know he is a good young manager on a sharp upward curve. I don’t see anyone out there that I would want in charge of us more than Mauricio.
To me it's simple. This management team and squad of players have pushed on from our previous position. We need to strengthen with a striker, CB and keeper to challenge Artur and push on again, if they run out of steam then so be it but I've seen no signs of that yet.

It's all well and good some saying if they leave we will push on without them but my experience is that has never been the case. The squad of the early mid eighties and early nineties was weaker after the departures and reflected in league position. I fact I'd say that every single time we've been on the verge of something it's been a lack of ambition that has seen us slide away.

Turning the clock back rarely works.

Let's stick with this proven group. We bought Osvaldo for a lot of money and he didn't work out. We bought Dixon and Speedie for a lot of money to replace Shearer and they didn't work out. Man U bought Fellanni, who I rate, but he hasn't worked out there. There is an element of lottery when you buy whereas we know what we have in Luke, Adam, Nat, Calum, Morgan, Jack, Dejan and Jay. If other teams think they are good enough for top 4/6 then let's keep them as that's most of team! Add in Rickie, Victor, Steve and Artur and you're building a great squad that needs rounding off with a couple more from the academy and a careful buy or two.

Add in Rickie, Victor, Steve and Artur and you're building a great squad that needs rounding off with a couple more from the academy and a careful buy or two. Seedhouse the Unrepentant

I think Mauricio Pochettino needs a new "project" and the Spurs job fits his needs.
If in his first season MP gets Spurs to plays fantastic football and wins the respect of the fans and pundits..........but finishes in 5th place......... will he stay for another season or will he start another project if Real Madrid, Barcelona or a national team comes calling for his services. I would have liked to seen MP given another season at Southampton just to prove his loyalty and to see how far the Saints team could go. Thats success for you.

The vibes do not feel good to me. Some reasonably reliable sources on twitter are suggesting that negotiations for MP to make the switch to Spurs are in full swing.

If so, one word....

I am clinging on to the fact that Poch has said nothing, Saints board has said nothing and THFC have said nothing.... but I am afraid that the parasites known as football agents control football these days, which means Poch will be Spurs manager before the weekend.
Agents control their clients, the clubs and the press... if you are lucky enough to be able to afford an agent, then they are great people who provide an invaluable service, if you are a mere fan who loves his/her club then they are ***ts who will one day be responsible for ruining our love of the beautiful game.

Is it groundhog day? Good question Elsass. If it isn't, it soon will be, and if it is, then yesterday it can't have been, although tomorrow might be today's groundhog day, in which case, today could well be yesterday's groundhog day. But then, if that's the case, tomorrow would surely be both today's groundhog day AND yesterday's groundhog day, and I'm not sure today AND tomorrow can both at the same time be yesterday's groundhog day. Maybe Confucious could shed some light on the matter because I'm now more confused than Alicesdad. And, as I was just as confused yesterday, today must be my groundhog day ...... I think!

I hope that helps.
It will all become clear yesterday.
Ha! That wasn't the case tomorrow, though, was it?
We should know by last Thursday.
Know what?
If tomorrow was yesterday,today,woul




d be the day after tomorrow.
I think that's the day when MP is planning to return from his Caribbean holidays.
I thought he had already got back in two weeks' time. I blame the Bermuda-Guly triangle.

Meanwhile, I think we need to take our minds off things and I've been thinking back. Can anyone help. I can name the 12 players who were in the team at Wembley '76. Those 12 must have played most of our matches that year but which other players played in the 76 cup run and/or during that season in the league?

For example, who was our reserve keeper?

The only two players I can think of from that time are strikers Pat Earles and Austin Hayes.
Reserve keeper might have been Peter wells...but not sure
He joined in '76. I imagine it was just ahead of the 76-77 season to replace Turner who, I think, played his last Saints game at Wembley.

I bet the media coverage of his transfer was nothing like the constant speculation we're seeing this close season. How footy's changed!

You don't seem to have the spirit of your log in title!!! great pity.
The clubs you mention were in the position of building, just like ours is today. They ,imo, will not grow much more but we have the opportunity too grow and possibly overtake these clubs in standing. POOCHY is no fool and i think he will want to finish what he has started. I think our club, players and certainly us fans all want this to happen and i think it will.
I am afraid it looks as if I was right in my prediction......and yes I am a life long fan 40 years this year...so I have experienced the 'ups and down's and frankly realise that this is an 'up' and unlikely to be sustainable....not based on emotion, but just the facts....but having said that I have purchased my season ticket for next season and will continue to support Saints home and away ..whatever....sad day...but we have been here before.....Ball, Souness, Hoddle, Redknapp...to name the others who sought to succour ambition elsewhere....

you are dreaming. Pochettino is history thanks to Katarina Liebbherr. She is turning out to be the club s worst nightmare a woman who doesnt understand football and just wants to asset strip.
It gets worse. News is she wants Malcom McClaren to be the next saints manager. Why am I not surprised. Not only is he useless but a yes man , wont make demands and will deliver nothing.
