    Next Spurs Manager Poll ...

    With Liverpool's win tonight over Utd they could pass Leicester for a top four finish by winning their remaining three games and Leicester dropping points against us or Chelsea. Would missing out and losing the FA Cup final be enough to convince Rodgers he'd taken the club as far as he could and be tempted by Levy to take over at Spurs ??

    Okay, let's give this one more go. Nagelsmann now removed because it's 99% certain he's off to Bayern Munich. If you want someone other than the choices listed then please select the 'Other' option and add a post naming your selection. Cheers and my sincere apologies for the mess with the other thread I originally posted on this subject, I had to remove it because I tried to just take Nagelsmann out as a choice and I completely cocked the whole thing up. (Yeah I know....what a plonker Rodney ! ). Anyway, let's have your updated choices and comments please. I'm going for Bielsa because I just love the way he has Leeds playing.

    Is Kane staying

    I keep seeing him in Levy's office and saying "Look, I think I have been a good servant to the club and have always repaid your faith in me by regularly scoring goals. I am naturally hungry for success which means trophies and titles. I just don't see Tottenham being in a position to challenge for such honours over the next 3-5 years. I would therefore respectfully ask that I be put on the transfer list and that you give serious consideration to all incoming offers (regardless of where from) in order that we come to a mutually agreeable decision about my future." If I were Daniel I would genuinely struggle to try to keep the lad at Spurs if I knew his heart just wasn't in staying any more.

    Is Kane staying

    I hate to say this my friend but after watching last night's game against Arsenal, if I was Abromovich or Tuchel then I would be paying whatever Daniel asked for Mr. Kane. With him in the squad they would be a match for anyone.

    Mind games or are we looking at Conte as our new manager ? https://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2021/05/13/tottenham-linked-antonio-conte-has-just-cancelled-a-press-conference-in-italy/ He'd be an "interesting" choice. I

    Don't Laugh At Arsenal

    Sadly my friend if this happened then Arsenal would have a new owner similar to Abromovich. Daniel Ek is a fanatical gooner, and I mean fanatical. He apparently has their games showing even if they conflict with business meetings. The guy would be hell bent on making Arsenal a major force in football and be willing to back up his dreams with hard cash. Such a pity Levy's dreams are all connected to bricks and mortar instead of fans and football.

    Don't Laugh At Arsenal

    Anybody notice Kieran Turney perform the remarkable trick of tackling himself against Aston Villa yesterday ? VAR said no foul apparently so he got away with it. Lucky lad The message from AFTV (My favourite YouTube comedy channel) to the Arsenal fans is "Trust The Process". Yeah right....Ozil sits at home counting his money whilst Aubameyang signs a megabucks contract and then disappears on the pitch. Some process. Villa absolutely dominated them yesterday and could have had four or five. Arteta is out of his depth, rather like OGS. I fancy both of them to be gone soon. Happy Days !!

    Totally agree mate and that may just be the reason he won't be considered...Levy couldn't handle such a response from his manager.

    Only if they beat Aberdeen and go unbeaten all season. Don't want anybody with just a 99% success record.

    Very much a 'hans on' management style I've heard.

    Nah...he sold his last 12% in June 2007 mate..... In February 2001, after speculation and confirmation on 11 December 2000, Sugar sold his majority stake at Tottenham to leisure group ENIC, selling 27% of the club for £22 million. In June 2007, Sugar sold his 12% remaining shares to ENIC for £25 million, ending his 16-year association with the club.

    Okay, so Eddie Howe to Celtic and Hansi Flick being wooed by Barcelona as Koeman's replacement. Brendan Rodgers not budging from Leicester just leaves us with Potter, Parker or Martinez as the three front runners. Personally I wouldn't want any of those but times are obviously hard and the club is not the attraction it used to be. Maybe some complete outsider we never thought of will appear but I have a sneaky suspicion Scott Parker is Spurs bound. He's Levy's choice but for all the wrong reasons. Daniel will pull his strings and Scott will toe the line. It's going to be a rough ride gentlemen.

    PSG Latest News ...

    PSG just beat Montpellier 6-5 on penalties after drawing 2-2 in the French Cup semi final. Hardly a convincing win and Poch was squirming in his seat...but they make it to the final.

    Looks like it's not all wine and roses across the channel either...and the PSG hierarchy and supporters are a lot less forgiving than the ones at White Hart Lane Monaco condemned Mauricio Pochettino to his second defeat as Paris St-Germain head coach with a shock win at Parc des Princes in Ligue 1. The hosts had just one shot on target as Monaco cantered to all three points. https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/56149514

    FAN REP ON BOARD

    I'll have a word with my wife Bren. If we can get her on the board Levy would agree with anything she demanded just to stop her going on and on about it

    Would No Europe Be A Good Thing Next Season ?

    I just think we need a clean page to start writing on and give the new manager as little room for excuses as possible. No Europe next season would mean no mid week travel, no increased injury risk to players and the opportunity to concentrate solely on domestic success. No more "The mid week travelling really took it out of some of the players and we looked tired today" during press interviews. As I said before we are not going to attract better quality players because we have qualified for this new ECL competition. Let's forget Europe for a whole season and begin this rebuild on firm foundations so that when we do return next season it's hopefully in the CL.
  18. Would there be any advantages to not qualifying for Europe next season ?. For one thing the new manager could concentrate solely on the Premier League and domestic trophies without having to worry about flying to previously unheard of clubs mid week and risking injury to players. It would perhaps give us the breathing space needed to clear the decks regarding unwanted players as we would not need such a large squad and could invest more in quality rather than quantity. It may seem a bad thing but to be honest I would rather finish 8th and have a 'year off' from Europe than qualify for this new ECL competition that is basically a third rate CL. Let's bring a manager in who has just the squad and the domestic competitions to worry about for his first season. Priority being that we secure a place in Europe 22/23 with hopefully a top four finish next year. We are not going to attract any better players even if we do finish 7th, so why not settle for 8th and use the time to reform and rebuild ??

    Good news on transfer funds?

    I know I'm sounding like the old man of the mountains here but having the money available is one thing, spending it wisely is another. Let's hope we get a manager in who brings in the right people and gets rid of the wrong ones currently residing at the club.

    Pep sets off the entire Liverpool fanbase

    But sadly not ours....
  25. What are your thoughts on this matter ? Was it unnecessary or worthwhile ? Were they genuine Glazer protesters or not ? Some are suggesting it was all a ploy so that they could not be the team who would have handed City the title if they had lost to Liverpool yesterday afternoon. Surely not Anyway the latest news is that following the protest the FA have decided to give Manchester United a penalty. Apparently Bruno Fernandes will be taking it.
