Re: Spurs sack Pochettino

As for Poch, a year ago he was in line for the Man U. job, replacing Jose. Ironic. How the semi-mighty fall from grace so quickly. Pretty much all of the best managers get sacked eventually. Even Klopp left his last two jobs under a cloud. I imagine that Poch and his team will not be unemployed for...

Re: Spurs sack Pochettino

I'm sad to see Poch go but we've not won away since January and clearly the squad are not happy this term, so something had to give, and it is pretty traditional in such circumstances to chop the manager. There are plenty of examples of fine and effective managers being fired not long after major ac...

Re: England v All Blacks

To be fair, Anscombe and Faletau weren't even at the RWC. I'm sure all teams can point to players that would be in their team were it not for injuries picked up prior to the tournament. Personally, I think Wales overtrain and that's why two of those missing did hamstrings, and Liam Williams was an ...
