    Yesterday's man and as bad a fit for us as it is possible to imagine

    A poor record in club management and England didn't play very good football last summer. He's done well to bring through kids but performances in qualification tell you nothing. He needs to prove himself in a proper job before he could be considered.

    Sean Dyche could be an option
    Not sexy or trendy but gets the best out of husband players

    I remember when Ramos was here, various posters wouldn't shut up about how Poyet was in line to succeed him.

    If that happened, I'd probably be thinking something along the lines of '...what's going on here? What's this guy, who was one of the best players in world doing here...?'

    Dyche is far from old school
    He just gets the best out of his players

    Marcelo Gallardo? Would he be interested? Highly rated, similar age to Poch, been at River Plate a good while. Might not have English though....

    He plays absolutely dreadful football.

    After they played us last year every poster on here was saying they hope he gets relegated due to how painful his sides are to watch!

    I should've added that he is a clam and would kill Skipp and Parrott's development

    Mourinho Benitez or Simeone. If none of them want it then Rodgers Martinez or Howe

    Julian Nagelsmann is the one I like for the future.

    I just had to go back and re-read the opening post. I thought that I'd got it wrong and it was asking to name a manager that you've heard of.

    Call yourselves Spurs fans ?

    To even make suggestions of a Poch replacement?

    This is treason, a betrayal!

    Shame on all of you. Shame!!!

    This is a surrender thread ( I can call this thread what I like )

    And you're all traitors! :mad:

    If it doesn’t say that, it should.

    Kevin Keegan!

    Ottawa, actually.
    Poch. Poch is good enough for the mighty Spurs. Always has been, and likely will always be.;)

    Otherwise...

    Nearly unattainable:
    If he leaves, Simeone is definitely good enough, but almost unattainable (he earns more than double what Poch does). Conte is damn good, but prising him out of Italy again may be difficult.

    Unlikely:
    Mourinho is definitely good enough, with a massive trophy cabinet, but he comes with a style the fans won't like. Benitez likewise.

    Possible:
    Nagelsmann is an interesting one, but he's on a fast-track to Bayern and may not want a detour to Spurs given that he's managing what is essentially an identical project in Leipzig. Brendan Rodgers is also an interesting shout - he's really not a bad coach, and by far the best of the British bunch.

    Promising punts:
    Erik ten Hag at Ajax - bloke took them to the CL semi, after a promising spell revolutionizing FC Utrecht in the Eredivisie. Another interesting punt would be Marcelo Gallardo, at River Plate - he's only 43, but he's already the most successful coach in their history, having only managed them for five years and won tons of honours in that time. He's turned them around from the situation they were in when he arrived, and was touted as the next Barca manager last year.

    Would be risky:
    Ancelotti - he's a good coach, but he might be outdated at this point. Pellegrini likewise.

    Don't touch with a fudging bargepole -

    Eddie Howe, Gareth Southgate, etcetera. Eddie Howe has spent a brick-ton of money at Bournemouth, only to consistently stall in lower mid-table, with a decent offense held back by a routinely terrible defense. He's a decent coach (the English Bobby Martinez, more or less), but the step straight up to Spurs is too much. I'd prefer he proves himself at Everton or somewhere similar first. As for Southgate, he seems roughly in his element internationally, but utterly failed at club level.

    I don't want to see Poch go, however our current record speaks for itself and I just feel that the moment either of the Man UTD or Real Madrid posts become available he will go. He seems to be making all the right noises in the press now, but I honestly think that Poch wanted the UTD job last year and was only kept away from it by Ole's appointment. As other's have said, I see no harm in talking about something that feels inevitable, even if that feeling is because the tossers on SSN have drummed it into us.

    So, I'll run through the list:

    Ten Hag - Took Ajax almost all the way in the Champions League playing a wonderful brand of football. However, the last coach that came from the Eredivise with such a furore was de Boer and he lasted all of 10 minutes at Palace. The guy knows Europe and good football but there will be a risk as to whether or not his ideas will translate to the Premier League. I think he'd be interested as would we be in him, but there are question marks.

    Nagelsmann - Looks great on paper, but very inexperienced and has only worked in Germany. On top of that, he's literally just taken over at RB Leipzig. I can't see us going for him nor him walking out on a contract so early on.

    Mourinho - Boring defensive football, a three year cycle that will end in him walking away with us in a worse place than when he took over. That's the expected outcome at least. With that however, we will likely get some level of defensive stability, some experienced professional's bought to bolster the mindset of the younger player's and likely some silverware. Mourinho honestly feels like the odds on favourite because of his familiarity with the league, Europe and experience managing top clubs. With that said, Poch wasn't the favourite last time round.

    Howe - I honestly like the football he has Bournemouth playing, but I've always felt that they do not defend well. Now that could be down to personel, but we have seen many teams of lesser standing come in and defend better than them. Howe also has no experience in European competitions which could cost us going forward. On the plus side, he knows the league and would likely not argue with Levy's penny pinching. Actually that last point is a bad one, we need someone who will push Levy to spend when it is required.

    Southgate - Please GHod no. He's a nice chap but he has fudge all experience at managing a club. There are few positives here if any, but one major problem is this; he won't leave the national team until after this summer's tournament which will mean next to no time to prep for the coming season. We will experience a slow start that he will struggle to pull us out of and be fired by Christmas when we are sitting in the bottom half of the table.

    Allegri - Probably the dark horse on this list and my preference. He's more experienced than all the others here bar Mourinho although that experience is only in Italy and the Champions League. He has however got one of the most successful CV's out there and has worked with some of the most talented players in football. Football wise, it might be a bit of a culture shock for our fans. Things will likely be a lot different to how they are now, not as defensive as Mourinho but I would expect a more conservative brand of football.

    Aside from these names, I cannot think of any others. Simeone is unlikely to leave Atletico anytime soon. Pperhaps he could be tempted by a change of scenery, but I think Atletico and him are too good a match for either to want to part company. Espirito Santo could be a worthy mention because of how well Wolves did against top 6 opposition last year whilst Farke is FOTM with the football he has Norwich playing. Tuchel stylistically is someone I like, but I cannot see him parting company with a club where he is guaranteed trophies and unlimited funds just yet.
