Give Pochettino a chance


Before a ball is kicked someone is asking how long you would give a new manager! Unbelievable. The last subject you want to be discussing when you have just appointed a new head coach is how long you give him, regardless of whether you want him to stay or not, subconsciously you are already looking for an exit.

No fan knows what criteria the club have decided to judge against, fans can guess but don't know so judging whether he is a success or not is not as cut and dried as top 4 or not. Tim Sherwood had different criteria from Andre Villas-Boas, we can assume that Mauricio Pochettino has the same remit as AVB.

Build the club so it qualifies for the |Champions League and has a production line of youth talent coming through the Academy and Development Squad. With a new stadium on the horizon Pochettino will be expected to have the club in the Champions League when it is built to maximise sponsor naming rights income.

To achieve that he is going to need a settled squad as we will not have a home ground in the final season it is built, we'll be playing our home dames in rented accommodation. Having spent last summer the club have to back their judgement, back their purchases and not simply make wholesale changes again. Purchases have to be balanced with sales while the squad is reshaped. A midfielder looks likely to leave initially for a left-back and a centre-back for a straight replacement.

Andre Villas-Boas by all accounts made his own position untenable by alienating all and sundry and refuses to do as instructed by the chairman and include the highest earner in the club in the first team squad selection plans.

If some supporters have turned on individual players again after a few weeks of training and a game on an artificial pitch while learning a new system then the manager really hasn't got a chance. The game was a total irrelevance, simply a training exercise on an unsuitable surface, a public relations game in an area where football is big.

We all have players who are not our favourites, Vild Chiriches for me is one but had he been playing and had a absolute mare he still wouldn't have received any criticism, simply not the right time for that, it would be unjustified.

The next game is in Toronto and a reuniting with Jermain Defoe. It will again be a game to see some of the youngsters in action and watch a few of the older ones as they try to build on their confidence. At this time it's extremely tough for strikers as they are relying on a midfield not up to speed to create them chances. Soldado has scored one but I'd like to see another from open play, that will really help him.
