A nice spot from Talking THFC on Twitter, it like your mate is showing off and trying to impress you so you just ignore him and pretend not to notice.

In January 2011, both Tottenham and Chelsea had £3-million bids accepted for Everton midfielder Steven Pienaar. He chose Tottenham and signed a 4-year deal but never really made the grade. He suffered injuries and when he did play he had minimal impact on the game. The Everton system suited him and he didn't adapt to the demands of our system.

Pienaar was always a bit part player and returned to Everton on transfer deadline day in January 2012 on a six-month loan deal. David Moyes bought him back for $4.5-million in July of that year. Now 34 he has signed a one-year contract with Sunderland after being released by Everton at the end of last season. The former South African International rejoins former boss David Moyes, now the new manager at Sunderland. He knows his boss very well and could be a good short-term signing for them.

Christian Benteke is finally going to get his move to Crystal Palace after they increased their bid to £27-million plus add-ons. The 25-year-old Belgian striker should be a good signing for Palace with someone like former Tottenham winger Andros Townsend supplying crosses. His aerial ability is shown by the fact that only one player has scored more headed goals in the Premier League, 29-year-old Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud.

Pochettino Consults Ferguson On Spurs Champions League Challenge

Pochettino consults Ferguson on Spurs Champions League challenge

One took a floundering club and turned them into a lasting world force, the other is undertaking the same task with encouraging initial results.

Sir Alex Ferguson was a better manager than many realised, despite all his trophies. he not only changed the culture at a club, he not only developed a winning mentality, but he built several sides and even won the Premier League title with what many considered to be an ordinary side. David Moyes couldn't handle it and Louis van Gaal is having to rebuild a side, we'll see next season how successful that is or whether he has gone by the wayside also.

Mauricio Pochettino has arrived at Tottenham like with a club in a similar position, one in a position consistently lower than it should be. Ferguson knew for United to be successful the club had to be run as a successful business, fortunately for Pochettino that was already in place at Spurs. All the club was waiting for was a manager with that something extra, that special touch.

It isn't enough to build a side for now, to have sustained success you have to build a conveyor belt of talent for the future. Relying on always spending money to build is fraught with danger. There are far too many players out there with talent, who simply don't have the burning desire to be the best they can be. There are far too many that almost go through the motions, our own Mousa Dembele is a prime example. He always had talent, but he was never the player he could become, now a change of mentality and he has just been rated as the best box-to-box midfielder in Europe by one organisation.

If you are building something long-term at a club then why not consult someone who has been there and done it. Mauricio Pochettino, his assistant Jesus Perez and Sir Alex Ferguson had lunch together at Scott’s Restaurant in London’s Mayfair on Tuesday.

With years of experience at the top and years of UEFA Champions League experience, it makes sense for Pochettino and Perez tap into that knowledge ahead of their first Champions League campaign. Pochettino had to learn how to handle the UEFA Europa League and the Premier League, the Champions League is a different matter. To pick the brains of Sir Alx to assist preparing for that and for building something that lasts makes perfect sense.
