Unsurprisingly, with nothing else to write about at Christmas time, the journos have been speculating about what will happen to Mauricio Pochettino, as if he didn't have a say in it himself.  One line of thinking is that Manchester United will move for not only the manager, but also John McDermott to take over their Academy and they will bring Paul Mitchell back from RB Leipzig to re-unite him with Mauricio at Old Trafford as Head of Recruitment.  With Kieran McKenna already there as first team coach, it is nice to see that as well as not being able to function without signing some of our top players over the years, they now can't manage without our management staff.  An alternative view touted later in the day was that Real Madrid are willing to offer Spurs Gareth Bale in exchange for Pochettino.  With neither club doing as well as Spurs at the moment, although possessing greater financial resources, you could only think that Pochettino might think he can turn these regressive oil tankers of clubs around.  One thought that hasn't struck the light bulbs in the writer's heads is that he might stay at Tottenham where the project continues to develop.
