Now that the dust has settled

Can we finally celebrate the fact that the now Jobless
One has been fired?

I am so happy for Ryan Mason
getting to manage his boyhood club after his tragic forced retirement.

Finally feels like a cloud has been lifted and I can once again look
forward and be optimistic about my Spurs.

Brighton were much better than Chelsea last night. Lost count of the times I’ve seen Brighton play really well this season but not win due to their lack of quality players in certain areas - despite the weak personnel they are well drilled and coached. I do think Potter has the potential to do very well with better resources available to him, he’s young and up & coming. I’d have no problem with us giving him a try - much more so than Marcelino or Howe. I am certain that Nagelsmann and Rodgers will not happen, financially or status wise it’s not achievable for us and Potter is an ideal alternative.

The biggest sign that he would be an excellent choice for us is that he's not one of Levy's first choices.

I wouldn't mind Potter if the top targets reject us. After doing some research I found out he is a Villa not Arsenal fan which was the only sticking point for me.

In some ways I hope we get him as i have doubts about JN and think Brendan will reject us right now anyway. Plus Potter will be cheaper too and money is going to be tight for a while.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Not saying that Potter would be my first choice but Brighton play some great stuff and are a much better team that their Prem postition suggests.

They have dominated many of the games that they have lost/drawn but have really struggled to score which shouldn't be a problem with the strike force he would inherit at Spurs.

Thinking about these managers we are linked to and even going forward with signing players, isn't the fact that Levy is the owner of one of the breakaway clubs and the rest of the 14 club owners/chairmen are reportedly peed off with what Levy and the 5 others have done, going to make negotiations for potential new managers/players difficult? Especially with Levy's reputation already.

I mean trying to get Rodgers or Nuno. He could easily be told where to go over this even if they were attainable. Potter too if that was an option.

Depends how much Levy offers and how much the manager in question wants to come us. They could request to speak to us after speaking to their agent. I'd imagine there are plenty if ways round it...

It doesn't just come down to Levy sure, but some of these managers might even think twice even if they were interested.

Might mean we end up with one of the managers that wouldn't cause much fuss like a Howe or Benitez. I hope not but the scenery for us and the other 5 clubs looks a little different than it did 48 hours ago.

Brighton were much better than Chelsea last night. Lost count of the times I’ve seen Brighton play really well this season but not win due to their lack of quality players in certain areas - despite the weak personnel they are well drilled and coached. I do think Potter has the potential to do very well with better resources available to him, he’s young and up & coming.

I am certain that Nagelsmann and Rodgers will not happen, financially or status wise it’s not achievable for us and Potter is an ideal alternative.

Still not for me. I’m convinced Spurs will have either Nagelsmann or Rodgers by next season. Nobody thought we would get Mourinho due to his high wage demands and we did, so I see no problem in Spurs forking out for a top manager if they want too. It won’t be Potter.

You forget the compo to Jose and it will cost us around £15-17m to get JN. That's at least £30m just there Don. We are not Man City or Chelsea....That £30m will more than likely effect the transfer budget.

Might want to lower your expectations Don just in case...

Any money we get a top manager like a Rodgers or Nagelsmann. Might even be Ten Haag, but no way in a million years will it be Potter.

I remember the same people saying no way are paying for Nagelsmann etc were saying exactly the same thing with Mourinho. “ no way can we afford Mourinho’s wages” etc etc. Spurs won’t be going for some manager that has no real credentials. Potter doesn’t currently have the credentials to manage a club that harbour ambitions to be in the CL. What, because he plays nice football ? Sorry guys, but if Potter is your expectations, then we really have gone backwards

It’s apparently £16m, paid as a wage while he’s on gardening leave, and stops if he takes up a new position.
