Santini was a Levy decision, think his mind was on getting a big name manager in. Arnesen was the one that wanted Jol in and convinced him to take the assistant job. Been speculated that Arnesen worked against Santini from the off.

Not sure why people say Levy got lucky with Redknapp. If anything it was the most thought through appointment he's done and exactly what we needed at the time. It was an old school manager that went against everything Levy wanted to build our management towards, but he saw that it was neccessary for the short term

Which gives me a little hope for Jose. 😎

For me, Levy will be judged more on not relieving Poch of his duties now, but of who he appoints as his successor.

And to channel my inner @Spurs_Bear - Eddie 'fucking' Howe won't suffice with me!

I think we all know we need a winner . We need a trophy of some sort .

1. Rafa Benitez he won a Europa league with half a season at Chelsea and the fans hated him. A CL with an average Liverpool side and an fa cup and other finals/semis . He won a Copa Italia at Napoli and the championship at Newcastle also had a great spell at Valencia .

2. Mourinho , enough said he won the Europa and the league cup with utd who were on the “decline”

Neither are long term projects because long term they need lots of funds . But In the short to medium term they know how to win silverware and we need ANY silverware right now we can’t be picky .

Kane deserves more . Poch has taken us to semi finals and finals but we have lost one to many now .

Think you should judge the next man on how he perform and not by his name though. Whoever it is it's a new start everyone should support. If it is Howe then let's see if he can deliver, if it's Mourinho don't hold his past against him.

For those who don't think we can get the upcoming starlet managers mentioned above. Yes their situation at current clubs point towards it. But don't overlook that our manager is one if the world's best paid at 8.5m

If we want to secure PL survival then I don't think there are any safer hands for us than Benitez. Who knows long term success beyond this season

I thought I'd check Ornstein's Q&A on the Athletic yesterday regarding Poch. He's seen as having contacts in the game but hasn't heard anything. Nothing mind-blowing but just something to consider. Only Spurs covering journey are reporting this ahead of the game Saturday. Nobody else has an inkling. Something doesn't sit right with me about this upheaval before playing West Ham, when we know they have a lot of fans in the print media. Just a thought.

Hi David,

Do you believe that Poch has the heart and belief to turn Tottenham around or is it simply a case of ‘who could take over that would do a better job’?



@toby D. No idea Toby, but lots of people I speak to in the game believe he will not be Spurs manager this time next year. Not fact, just a feeling in the game. Please don't blow this out of proportion - lots of people have been saying the same. Sorry I don't have the specifics you're asking.

But it was Poch who vetoed moves in the 'Summer of Sweet Fuck All '18' right?

Emphasis of it being Levy's fault now is simplifying the situation and affording Poch far too much slack.
Not in any way, shape or form. Sorry F26 but for me, the buck stops with Daniel the Ewok.

Poch is suffering the effects of that decision right now. Pretty much everything is going against him and majority on SC wants him gone. Where's the slack there? He's not getting any slack at all, not from the media and certainly not from most of us.

Levy has got his licks to come to him and by jimminy he's going to get them, let's not pretend he didn't have a massive part to play in all this.

He got lucky with Redknapp because he was never meant to be anything more than someone who saved us from the mess Ramos left. If you'd have told Levy he was going to get revenue from a Champions League quarter final 2 years later after a midfield duo of Huddlestone and Palacios and ****s like Pavyuchenko had guided the team there the previous season even the little bald **** would have to admit that wasn't on his agenda.

No-one is blameless. Levy gets a lot right but he's not infallible. Look at the season that we needed a push to keep the league title momentum going and we got Nelson and Saha.
They were relatively minor signings IIRC in the months of Harry Redknapp's court case, his subsequent acquittal, his interest expressed in the England manager job vacancy after Fabio Capello's departure —with the supposedly well-informed, knowledgeable football media saying Harry was his obvious replacement and agreeing among themselves he was a dead cert to be appointed. The series of bad results in the Premier League that followed caused Spurs to fall out of the top places, and Harry lost his job at Spurs while also not getting the one with England. While I read plenty of gripes, then and since, about Saha and Nelson, they were not why Spurs fell short that season.

Luis Enrique, who was one of the favourites to replace Unai Emery if Arsenal sack him, has just been reappointed as the Spanish national manager 5 months after stepping down.

Mourinho's now the favourite to be the next manager of both us and them.

If he's the one Levy wants to replace Poch, now is probably the time to make the move.

All the reports out their seem just to copying the telegraphs. Hopefully it’s just click bait for these websites.
The Telegraph is particularly weak on reporting about Tottenham. For other media and then the usual social media bunnies to have so keenly fallen in behind their claim just makes it all the more amusing.

Because of Poch's historical managerial failures. Look at the big picture mate. How many times did Southampton qualify for the Champions League? I'll tell you. None. He's a serial nearly man. If we want a stick to beat him, at least do the job properly.
Hahaha. Now here is a classic quote; a collector's item.

Now why on earth would we not just part ways now so a new man can use this season to settle in given its a write off practically anyway.
In an ideal world a new manager would come in and do OK and use the time to assess his squad so that we could hit the ground running next year.

However, it doesn't always work like that. Coming in mid-season, especially during a disastrous run, means the new manager has a very difficult job to do. They need to completely transform the team but with very little time to do much more than basic game-by-game preparation. Therefore it's quite likely that things won't get much better under a new manager straight away and if the players aren't able to adapt to the new regime without a proper preseason etc. then you can end up with a situation where the new manager has already lost the benefit of the doubt/trust from both the players and the fans by the time the summer even comes around. In some ways it's better for a new manager to come in, have a full summer of preparation and a clean slate of a season, rather than having to come in and crowbar something together to get through the last few months and hope it works out.

Both clubs don’t want sack manager yet?

I think maybe they mean he got lucky as Redknapp cleared up the mess created by appointing Ramos and Commoli. Redknapp was brought in to stop the rot, but ended up doing far better than I suspect Levy envisaged.
