    Alderweireld and Wanyama he worked with at Southampton, so no real judgement needed there. Out of Son Moura and Tripps I'd only call Son a real success.

    Also he turned down players like Tielemans.

    Not if we get him and back him in the manner he demands (I'm still not sure the first of those will happen and I certainly can't see the second of them happening).

    I think all (well most) of us on here could see the (lack of) ambition when we eventually stumbled onto him in our manager search in the summer.

    Trips was decent nothing special, maybe I'm being unfair as it was a downgrade on Walker.

    Depends on how you define success? If you define it as integrated and added something to the team, add Aurier, Llorente and Sissoko to that list too. After all they helped us get to the Champs league final and finish 4th.

    I do accept he was not as good at scouting players as Redknapp.

    Yup, you're right, he joined Southampton when Poch was already with us.

    What about a football club making profits and wasting money paying tax to the government?

    he was a downgrade on walker, but the much maligned walker is still starting for city and England.

    and we got trips for something like 3m which is unbelievable value

    No, but if you had a business where your share had gone up in value massively since you purchased it and it now needed a liquidity injection to move forward further and you then diluted your ownership to allow that liquidity to be injected you would.

    I don’t consider taxes a waste of money.

    If the club are demanding that the manager achieves CL qualification then they have to provide a commensurate transfer and wage budget to enable that. The players that Pochettino wanted weren't going for ridiculous fees, nor were they demanding absolutely outrageous money. Unfortunately our chairman thought his goose would keep on golden eggs even when being given chicken feed, once he started laying ordinary eggs he was jettisoned despite perhaps being the man who ensured the new stadium didn't actually bankrupt us (imagine the state of our finances now had we not had those four CL campaigns in a row).

    We didn't back Harry long before that. The season after we first qualified for the CL Harry was desperate for a striker. You remember the whole black and yellow saga and the interests in Forlan, Milito etc?

    Instead we didn't back him and went into our first CL season, the holy grail if you will with flipping Crouch and Defoe.

    If we had been able to back him we would have likely qualified for the CL two seasons in a row and built better long term foundations.

    Was that the year Redknapp decided he wanted the England job and we blew a 14 point lead to the arse?

    I know I sadly remember. VDV was making the best of a bad situation because our strikers couldn't be relied on to score. We needed and wanted a good No9 for VDV to play off. Crouch was million miles from that and Harry clearly never rated Pav.
