Genuinely, not being an insufferable smart ass here, why would somebody have Nagelsmann but not Howe. Who can lay out the differences for me? I know a team under Howe lines up differently than under Nagelsmann, very differently, but is that actually why one is so preferred over the other?
I think because he took Hoffenheim from relegation candidates to the Champions League and so far he's doing well at Leipzig. Howe was good at Bournemouth, failed at Burnley and has gone back to being good at Bournemouth.

It's up to you which you consider the greater achievement, and there's loads of subjectivity, but to me it's a pretty clear difference.

Ah the romance
of the beautiful game.
Can't we bribe our way to one
instead of buying players?

Nice.
I want to win, Jimmy - I wasn't around for all the glory and cup wins that you've seen in your years, and I'm prepared to see Spurs to play the same game as the other successful clubs do to get there. It's easier to stick to a high-minded set of principles when you've had a taste of success in your lifetime: for those of us who started in the dark days of the mid-90s and have never even seen Spurs lift an FA Cup, I for one am perfectly happy to see a Mourinho-style boss come in if he gets us closer to winning the trophies which I haven't been around to celebrate before.

Just a thought, but surely finances for players would be discussed in great depth and understood prior to Levy and Mourinho agreeing anything. I think Mourinho has sufficient ego to want to prove he’s not a spent force, and as such taking on a job with instant playing options like Kane, Son, Alli, Ndombele etc would be a great starting point. Equally, he may want to show he can deliver without being seen to buy his way out.

Not 100% he’s the answer, however I do believe appointing someone with a winning track record like Jose or Allegri would go some way to rallying the senior players more than the appointment of a promising ‘Project Manager’.

Now, whether we are at the point of targeting a big name and backing them to their requirements is a different story. Maybe with a stadium still to pay off (even allowing for the refinance), maybe we are still at the project stage for a little while longer yet. If so, then focus on the academy and development squad recruitment and coaching, alongside a manager more tactically astute and focused on using the younger players, allied with a better development strategy (loans etc) is the way forward.

We have a proper squad to compete. We need to
motivate the players. Someone with pedigree can come in and do that. Mourinho is the man for me. A bit of renewed spirit with the players and some organization would go a long way IMO. I personally don’t think anyone from the PL that is attainable could do that.

One situation to watch is what's going on at Napoli.

Carlo Ancelotti is in charge, in his 2nd season I believe, but things aren't going too well at the moment.

Napoli's form hasn't been great, currently 7th in the league, although likely to qualify for knockout stage of CL. After a recent 0-0 draw vs Genoa, the owner's son came down to the dressing room to demand that the players & manager head straight off to a training retreat to help try and rediscover their form. This led to a heated altercation and the players essentially ignored the request and went home. Ancelotti didn't argue and he and the owner have publicly disagreed with each other in recent weeks after previously having a good relationship.

Italian Ultras are notoriously weird and take football WAY too seriously. As an example of this, Allan, one of their best players, had his house broken into whilst his pregnant wife was home and another player (Zielinski I think) had his car vandalised. The owner has had an offer from the middle east to sell the club so if he does then this probably resolves the situation. If he doesn't then there's every chance that Ancelotti leaves the club, along with most of their best players as it's been perceived that the squad has reached the end of a cycle and needs to be blown up - sounds familiar doesn't it?

My chelsea mate said Ancelotti was brilliant for them. He loved him and the football they played under him and never understood why he left Chelsea.

IMO he'd be an excellent appointment and actually, we could do a lot worse than looking to sign players like Allan, Zielinski, Fabian Ruiz. Equally Ghoulam the left back is very good.

Ancelotti is a winner; I’d 100% have him if Poch does move on.

When that list of managers got voted on with all sorts of names on there, where was Lampard, Pep or Klopp? I mean we're just as likely to bring any of those three in as Wenger, Pleat or De Boer who only lasted four games last time he tried to work in the EPL.

(And with that, Spurslove turned all the lights off, locked all the doors and windows and went and hid in the broom cupboard).

Those three are definitely the most unrealistic on the poll

Fraid he’s at the stage of his career where he’s coasting. There was lots of noise at Bayern that he hardly attended training. One of the Bayern management joked that he knew the city’s top restaurant menus better than the playing squad.

That type of late-era Fergie manager, is almost like an executive chef, who designs a restaurant menu, but then other people do all the cooking. It’s just not the kind of manager we need in my opinion. We need a strong hand who’s going to push players and the club on.

(I realise this post became quite cooking-heavy!)

Real Madrid were very good to watch when he was there as well. Allan would be perfect for us tbh, but he'll be 29 in January, so can't see that happening personally.

What we thinking then. Another shocking display and result against Spammers and that’s Pochettino’s lot?
