But there's a massive difference between managing a club of Spurs magnitude and managing a big club. Spurs do not play with the same pressure and expectation of the bigger clubs but they have failed to advance in major tournaments or make a serious dent on the league. At the end of the day, Spurs have made very little progress under Pochettino and for me that's the key in all of this.
And he has the 4th or 5th best squad in the country which means if he finishes around that position this season then he has essentially taken Spurs no further than their resources and squad would ask for. Which is hardly an achievement.
It's the same way we are a squad who are probably the 4th best in the league behind the current money men in City, Chelsea and United so Wenger finishing 2nd, 3rd and 3rd in the last three seasons would indicate that he's pretty much ever so slightly over achieving given we don't actually have the resources to challenge the bigger clubs.
I just don't get the logic in what makes Pochettino so great yet. He'd be a massive gamble and his teams have the same mentality issues that our team does. They're unable to cope with pressure. The only benefit to him is his organisation. Other than that he's just the flavour of the month because of his high pressing style which seems to be so popular atm.
And some of the stinkers he's signed over the last few seasons too.. including the not particularly cheap Frenchman and Dutchman (who cost nearly £50m combined) who have looked way out of their depth this summer.
I'd need someone to put together a more convincing argument than is being thrown about currently for me to be convinced he's the right choice for a big club.
