Pochettino is especially touched by the memory of Emery, who at 47 is a year older then the Tottenham boss, recommending he replace him at Valencia when the latter left for Spartak Moscow in 2012.Pochettino declined the offer, preferring to remain at the less prestigious La Liga outfit Espanyol, and insists that their roles at the head of such big rivals will not affect their friendship.“The opposite I think,” said Pochettino “Of course we are in different clubs and it is a derby we are going to play.“In the moment we are going to compete, we are going to try to find the way to beat each other but before and after the game (we are) always very good friends.”Pochettino, who has garnered much praise for the style his young team play although they are yet to win any silverware in his four years in charge, says he is still moved by Emery’s generous gesture.“I called Unai who was in Spartak Moscow and said, ‘Thank you very much for recommending me’. I chose to stay at Espanyol at the time,” said the Argentinian. “I am loyal.”“You need to ask him (why he recommended me), I didn’t ask why. You need to say thank you and be grateful when a colleague — and after someone who became a very good friend (does that).“It’s not usual that a manager recommends another manager when he leaves the club.”Pocchetino will have his work cut out on Sunday. Tottenham have not won away at Arsenal since 2010 and that 3-2 win remains Spurs’ only win at the Gunners in their last 25 meetings.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino says his friendship with Arsenal counterpart Unai Emery will still be as strong post the North London derby © AFP / Glyn KIRKLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 1 – Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is not going to let the north London derby clash on Sunday affect his friendship with Arsenal boss Unai Emery.The two old friends will meet for the first time in the Premier League with third-placed Spurs three points better off than the Gunners.
Do you think U.S. obligations to Iraq, and to the many Iraqis who have actively collaborated with us, are no greater than our obligations, if any, to the residents of the Congo or Darfur? Would a humanitarian disaster have to threaten to be a strategic disaster for the United States before an Obama administration would intervene militarily? In his second Inaugural address, the president said: “The survival of liberty in our land increasingly depends on the success of liberty in other lands.” You have said: “In today’s globalized world, the security of the American people is inextricably linked to the security of all people.” Well. Given that the goals of liberty and security can both generate foreign policy overreaching, and given the similarity between your formulation and Bush’s, should people who are dismayed by Bush’s universalizing imperative be wary of yours? Does not yours require interventions in Darfur – where you say “rolling genocide” is occurring – the Congo and similar situations? You stress the importance of people taking “responsibility” for their actions. But in a Financial Times column regarding the subprime mortgage turmoil, you said lenders, by “lowering their lending standards,” were guilty of “pushing,” “hoodwinking” and “driving” low-income buyers into mortgages “they could not possibly afford.” The “victims,” you wrote, “are the millions of borrowers who followed the rules, whose only crime was in taking out mortgages that lenders told them they could afford.” You propose a fund to help these millions of borrowers, partially paid for by penalties on lenders who committed fraud or behaved “irresponsibly.” Puzzles abound. How did lenders “push” these people? Are these “victims” absolved of personal responsibility simply because they were “told” they could afford the mortgages? Could you define – and defend punishing – lending that is “irresponsible” but not fraudulent? The foreclosure rate for so-called “jumbo” mortgages – those of more than $400,000 – is approximately the same as the rate for subprime mortgages. Are borrowers who seek and receive such large mortgages also blameless “victims” of being told and driven to do something reckless? In 1978, in a case regarding racial preferences in admissions to a California medical school, the Supreme Court ruled, in an opinion written by Justice Lewis Powell, that race can be considered a “plus” factor for minority applicants. But Powell’s biographer, John Jeffries of the University of Virginia law school, writes that when the justices met in conference to deliberate about the case, and Thurgood Marshall said such preferences would be needed for another century, Powell was “speechless.” In 2003, the court affirmed the constitutionality of racial preferences in admissions to the University of Michigan law school. Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, writing for the majority, said such preferences would be unnecessary in 25 years. How long do you think they will be necessary? By what criteria do you measure necessity? Why are they necessary now, two generations after the civil rights laws of the 1960s? More questions to come, 17 answers from now.

You’re all set! Is it audacious to hope for more clarity from Barack Obama than he has so far supplied? Herewith 17 questions for him: You advocate leaving in Iraq “some” U.S. forces for three missions – fighting al-Qaida, training Iraqi security forces and protecting U.S. forces conducting those two missions. Some experts believe that even 60,000 U.S, troops would be insufficient for those functions – even if the Iraqis were not, as they will be for the foreseeable future, dependent on U.S. logistics, transport, fire support, air support, armor and medivac capabilities. What is your estimate of the numbers required by your policy? How, and in consultation with whom, did you arrive at your estimate? As to fighting terrorists but not insurgents – how would soldiers and Marines tell the difference? If, while searching for terrorists, they make contact with insurgents, would your rules of engagement call for a full force response? You say all “combat brigades” should be out of Iraq “by the end of next year.” Even if al-Qaida is still dangerous? Who, after the end of next year, will protect U.S. noncombat forces that you say “will continue to protect U.S. diplomats and facilities” and to “train and equip” Iraqi forces? In an Associated Press interview you argued that preventing genocide in Iraq is not a sound reason for keeping troops there: “By that argument you would have 300,000 troops in the Congo right now where millions have been slaughtered as a consequence of ethnic strife, which we haven’t done. We would be deploying unilaterally and occupying the Sudan, which we haven’t done.”
