    Happy Fathers day

    Ha ha well my two lads have just turned 4… yes they bicker and fight all the time, then best friends again afterwards. Just like me and the wife ha! They’re a bit young to follow a full match, but I’ve fully indoctrinated them about Spurs so they can name most of our players… great parenting! Yep Bale was awesome the other day, but I also think Davies and Rodon have been very solid too. Defo get behind Wales today.

    Happy Fathers day

    Well said! My dad is coming round for Sunday lunch at ours and after I’ll be taking my twins to a bike track and play area in Skipton. Timings are all designed to ensure I can be back at home watching Wales play Italy with a beer in hand! Happy Father’s Day all!

    Is Kane Staying ?

    Some good points here, but on the occasions when he has got the ball he’s been strangely terrible at the Euros! Simple things he does perfectly for Spurs aren’t working at all - poor first touches, simple passes going astray, weak shots or miss-hits. He also just looks slow and jaded. I’m a huge fan of Kane, absolutely love him, but he’s having a shocker so far! I fully back him to come good though. Plus if he’s had some of the easier chances that others have squandered, he’d have scored for sure.

    Is Kane Staying ?

    He doesn’t look worth much more than that based on the Eng vs Sco game tonight. Had a bit of a stinker! Still, can surely only get better though.

    Who Will Be The Next Manager ?

    They haven’t announced anything. They don’t need to. It wasn’t true.

    Please can people stop believing all the nonsense click bait media bollocks about every manager. Just because someone reports something in social media doesn’t mean it’s true!

    Exactly. Media speculation and made up nonsense. People are being spoken to. Enquiries and interviews will take place. A formal job offer will be made to someone. When an offer is accepted it’ll be announced.

    FFS I’m going to have to ask my mate who works at Spurs again to tell us what’s happening. I mean he knew sod all last time, but that’s as much as anyone seems to know at Spurs.

    England get win

    Kane seemed to be ok at making space for others and I guess he always occupies defenders, but he really wasn’t great. I’m sure he’d say he didn’t get much service though. If Kane plays shit at the Euros or (heaven forbid) gets injured then he might not get sold after all… or would it just lower his price tag?

    Who Will Be The Next Manager ?

    Has it been announced? Where? Not who most (all?) of us would have wanted when this search began. I expect the players too (especially Kane and Son) will be underwhelmed. Let’s hope he comes in and does an amazing job, although I’m not hopeful - too many unknowns. I’ll get behind him and the team though. The worst part is the shitty negative PR around it. Appointing the guy who was sacked for Mourinho is just utterly embarrassing. Levy has overseen a disastrous period and this is the lowest I’ve felt about Spurs for years. Might not come into this forum much until after the Euros as I’m just fed up with many aspects of my club.

    He surely won’t be staying if Paulo Fonseca comes in.

    I agree. Although it has to be said (as much as we dislike them), the chop & change approach does work at Chelsea....regular managerial changes and regular trophies. They do spend huge money of course, that we don’t/won’t have.

    Champions League Final 2021 May 29th 20:00

    I dislike both clubs, wish both could have lost really. Did a forum post making this same point on the main BBC match thread and it’s somehow the highest rated comment!

    Yeah whoever we sign getting it done pre-Euros is a big win.

    Who Will Be The Next Manager ?

    Yeah it was a let down to be honest! Useless. I could make up a sensational story about ‘Spurs staff don’t have a clue what’s going on’ but we know that already from watching the players!

    Who Will Be The Next Manager ?

    Right then. I can’t tell you exactly what he replied as it will explain his role and give up his identity! But he said: “unfortunately Daniel doesn’t disclose this information with me in [my role]. So not much use! Note the first name terms on Daniel!

    I have a mate who works at Spurs and Ive texted him to ask what’s happening with the Kane and Poch rumours. I’ll advise shortly if I hear owt interesting!

    FFS Pirlo is now available after being sacked by Juve. WE NEED A NEW VOTING FORM ASAP! List of options: Poch, Conte, Mason, Pirlo, Martinez, Ten Haag, Zidane, Rangnick, Allegri, Inzaghi, Rodgers, Nuno, Scotty Parker, Potter, Southgate, Klinsmann, Hodgson, Jenas, Hoddle, Redknapp, Jol, Gross, Venables, Gascoigne, Nayim, Mabbutt Who have I forgotten?

    Who Will Be The Next Manager ?

    I hear you sir. Poch did take us to the final of the Carabao cup in 2015 (or 2014? I forget!) and I think there was an FA Cup semi too. But yes, we definitely did prioritise league and Euro performance over domestic cups, which almost worked out. As Mihai has just said, you can definitely see us needing sustained CL income now to recover from the crap years of Jose and the pandemic. Some stability would also be good, help wash away the negativity surrounding the club. However, I’d like to think that we’re just a few shrewd signings off being competitive in all comps next season. With better defenders and/or better tactics (ie. Poch style aggression, pressing and higher % possession rather than Jose park the bus) we’d have surely claimed 10-12 more points in the league and so been fighting for 2nd this season. Cant quite recall who Poch had in the squad when he left, but I’d say that Reguillon, Hojbjerg, NDombele, LoCelso and Bergwijn (now they are all fully integrated at Spurs and the Prem League) are upgrades on what we had before. Add in Skipp, Rodon and maybe Sess/Foyth (plus Bale?) plus a few of the youth and surely the squad is stronger now than what Poch had before? I can certainly see him getting us playing well, with a good spirit and much better energy! Plus there will hopefully be some signings to come in key positions (CB, RB, AM) and we’ll ship out some stale deadwood. It’s all irrelevant anyway though as the news about Scotty Parker’s return to Spurs can only be hours away now! :-)

    Yes a huge drop off in the last year but the squad should have been refreshed way before that. Of all the candidates we’ve been linked with or who might be available, who do you want?
  23. BlockFeet

    Who Will Be The Next Manager ?

    After all of this - you just know we’ll end up with Scotty Parker.
