    Yeah, and he's obviously a person very conscious of his image, and jumping ship from Leicester to "bigger things" so soon would not look good, never mind the current difference in position in the table.

    Well, I didn't mean that exactly.

    He just seems to be a person who is aware of his "optics" (or certainly more aware than he used to be) and knows he has a certain reputation for the various Brentisms of his earlier years, plus all the tranny-shagging rumours and booting his wife out, and now jumping ship unexpectedly from Celtic mid-season.

    He will want to control and manage that, as part of Brendan Rodgers Version 3.0.

    It's brilliant the way it's impossible to tell if it's serious or not, just goes to show how monumentally fucked they are currently.

    That Champions League Final that Ole beat us in June was a damn good match, no wonder they call him a Legend

    Seems Levy's not going to relax the purse strings. In those circs.they prolly thought Pochettino had taken the current squad as far as he can. Whether or not a change of manager can refresh the squad enough to justify this decision, time will tell.

    Pochettino to Old Toilet next?

    If Bayern have any sense, they should go for Pochettino right now. He would be an ideal fit for them.
