Friday night brought a very intriguing revelation indeed from Steven Gerrard.
The 35-year-old spent his whole career at Liverpool up until this year, when he swapped Anfield for Los Angeles. But it could have been very different.
Gerrard says he could never play against the Reds - and that a move to Spurs wouldn't provide enough of a buzz for the Kop icon.
But the initial Tottenham interest is telling. If the north London side really wanted the former Liverpool captain, would he have been a regular starter or a squad player? How would he have fit in at White Hart Lane considering Pochettino's dedication towards youth and high-pressing play?
Obviously, we'll now never know - but Spurs fans have got to talking on Twitter, anyway. Naturally - it's not every day a Liverpool legend is linked with a move to Tottenham.
Here's what they said on social media in response to Gerrard's claims, with there being a mixture of views...
If Pochettino tried to sign Gerrard he's an absolute tool. Why oh why did we not go for someone with a proven track record #COYS— Don_ THFC (@Dnannery) September 11, 2015
