Question is: Is Tottenham interested in letting Pocchetino go already in
January? That way they can at least get some money for him.
Pocchetino isn’t that great to develop players. Walker was only a decent
player under him but developed into the best in EPL only under Guardiola.
Danny Rose is totally destroyed under him who looks so so promising a few
What are your views on Kane, Alli, Dier, Trippier, Davies, and Winks?
Kane is a good player. Not a world class. He lakes of creativity compared
to top ones like Suarez. He could find a role in top elite club, Juventus,
PSG, Barcelona and Man City.
You should decide what your argument is. First you said that "Pochettino
isn’t that great to develop players," now you're saying that Kane isn't
world class. Those are two different things. Just because a player isn't
considered WC doesn't mean he hasn't been developed well by a coach.
Having a half dozen grown starters in a team that's finished in the top 3
of the most competitive and richest league in the world for 3 consecutive
seasons, and made the knockouts of the UCL for 2 consecutive seasons is a
very impressive feat.
The core of the Spur team, Hugo Lloris, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Kane,
Eriksen. Only Alderweireld was purchased by Pochettino. Others are
inherited from previous managers. So, there is also no proof that he is
good at making good transfers once have budget.
Spurs without Eriksen is like a man without attacking brain.
I have to agree the overall results are good compared to how much he spent
but it does not mean he is good at developing players.
Going to ManU means the bars is much higher, i.e., trophies not only just
qualifying for UCL.

On a side-note, in my opinion Kane is WC (based on numbers alone), and
he's an excellent passer of the ball, which would fall into the
'creative' category in some definitions. Sergio Ramos said earlier this
year that Kane surprises defenders with his technical qualities.
The world class attackers are Suarez, Hazard, Neymar, Messi, Ronaldo and
Mbappe who has so many weapons to break defenses directly and open up
spaces, dribbling, shooting, free kicks, headers. Kane can shoot (some time
can be a possession killer) and header, but no dribbling and his first
touch isn’t that great compared to above which is everything. His short
pass is OK though but lack of imagination.
Kane is for now is more like another Rooney or Owen. Both were considered
WC by English media and people. Although he has potential to develop into
WC, he need seriously improve his dribbling, first touch and decision
making though not just shoot from everywhere.

Others are only promising. No role for them in top elite clubs.
Agreed on most, but Alli might have a few top suitors should he want to leave Spurs.

The power of English media is inflating all those English players.
That cliche is over a decade old and quite outdated. Even the English
have wisened up to the limitations of their players and teams, as
witnessed by the performances of their clubs and country in
international/continental competitions over the last decade or so.
One OK World Cup and is really lucky. Played only one good game against
Sweden. Lucky to win the penalty against Colombia. Lucky to be drawn in an
easy good. Have to watch and see what the future hold. The only noticed
improvement is hiring a sports
psychologist which really paid off and finally found a decent goalkeeper.
The playing style is still too much defensive with focus on set piece to
One data point of inflation is Luck Shaw’s salary is 10m UK pounds per year
which is more than anyone in Juventus except Ronaldo.
