Looking forward to seeing how Alderweireld and Vertonghen fare.

Will good defenders cover Roberto's tactical shortcomings or will he drag the defense down to his level?

Hoping he teaches them things to take back to Spurs

[At a Spurs training session]

Pochettino: What are you doing?

Alderweireld: Roberto told me to... [interrupted with a loud SLAP!].

Pochettino: Don't listen to anything Roberto tells you. Ever.

[End scene]

Apparently, Ralf Rangnick was one of the finalists for this job but Martinez beat him out.

Rangnick must sit around all day wondering what he has to do to get a job ahead of Martinez since this is the second time this has happened to him. I guess tactical nous doesn't count for much on the market.

Edit: I feel bad for Ralf because he kind of seems destined to be under-appreciated forever. He might not have gotten us in with Lukaku and Deulofeu, but I think he would have been a much better manager for us overall and he would have finally received some well-deserved appreciation outside of Germany.

He's probably not helped that you can't read his name in anything other than a Scooby Doo voice.

That would be completely perfect if his name was Ralf Rangrick.
