Pochettino joining West Ham…the chances!

West Ham supporters are already suggesting and hoping that Spurs loss could be the Irons gain by replacing Manuel Pellegrini with Mauricio Pochettino.

From where I’m sitting  the chances look slim to almost non existent. The West Ham board appear to content in backing their manager for now and seem in no hurry to replace him but the additional question is whether West Ham would ever interest Pochettinio.

He is already being tipped as a possible replacements for Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid when the day comes for the celebrated French coach to move aside. Real Madrid have tried to sign him on two occasions in recent years only to be denied permission to talk to him by Spurs.

Pochettino’s wife Karina and his two boys Sebastiano and Maurizio are said to settled in London and might be reluctant to move should he have a chance to manager another London club.

Spurs arch rivals Arsenal would be the most obvious choice in London with Unai Emery struggling but the Hammers could be a back up choice if his family wanted to stay in London.

Never say never but it’s not a bet I’d want to have!

  1. I rate him as one of the best managers in world football today. Any club he goes to will be looking upwards.

    I mean just look at what he managed to do at a two bit, under-spending club like Tottenham.

    I see a continuing fall from grace for them, no matter who is in charge. at least until they start pumping consistently huge amounts of cash again.

  2. I think pochettino would be a good fit for the irons. Tottenham’s loss would be westham gain.he plays a good style of football that I think would suit us. Coyi

  3. Westham should go after pochettino he would make a good westham manager.he plays the kind of football that I think we should play well with wing backs like masuaku and Frederick’s. All that is left to say is coyi.

  4. He’s just right. It would be a great fit. Same footballing philosophy. Levy has blundered. We should go for him – strike while the iron’s hot 😉

  5. He will go to Man u. Not us. A total backwards step

  6. Surely if we get battered by spurs and if as we are to believe that Roberto is still going to be in goal then wouldn’t that signal the end of the dinosaur pellegrinisauras himself!!
    Hopefully pochettino would want some revenge on spurs but knowing us we would get another temp like moyes in!!

  7. Terrible sighning ; we haven’t gone forward at all . In fact we are stuck in the same sticky mud as far back to the late 70’s . We haven’t had a decent manager since Johnny Lyle or maybe even Redknapp . Time for a change Again ; well yes . West Ham should have been a massive club by now if you think back to the 60’s and it’s highly frustrating that we are still trailing behind the rest .
    Let’s give Pelligrini , Bilic , Moyes , ect ect ect more time ,,, ffs . Enough is enough .
    We are the club that never fullfills expectations and all the Fans & Supporters are getting really ****ed off .
    Pelligrini out is the only answer but who to replace him is a big question .
    Maybe an ex player ?? . Can’t do any worse than Man Utd .
    Benitez ? , yes … Pochettino? , yes . Howe , but he is dedicated to his club .
    Make Noble as Manager and see where it goes is my opinion . Too many has beens on a big paycheck doing nothing . The fans and heart & soul of the club is suffering and has suffered too much . Time to be radical . We have been far too relaxed and knee jerking .
    I would give my support to any vote that promotes Noble . Or , any person of West Ham upbringing that has the nuts to take it on . Forget all these non-English managers that don’t even speak English properly . “ in this moment “ ffs .

  8. We have two hopes of getting pochettino…………..No hope and Bob Hope!😏

  9. Well those comments really set the tone for Saturdays game. Don’t forget it is the 11 players on the pitch that haven’t performed you can’t blame the manager for everything, he was music to our ears when he was appointed!! . Let’s just give the team huge support on Saturday and see what we can do to demoralise the Spuds. COYI ⚒️⚒️⚒️⚒️
