Situation Still Vacant....6 Weeks Later

Mourniho was sacked on the 19th April and Spurs have still not appointed a new manager over 6 weeks later.

When the club sacked Jose, just 6 days before the final and within a handful of games before the end of the season, it appeared that the sudden nature of his sacking meant that the club had a plan in place. That was wishful thinking.

Now the fans are being seduced with the idea of Poch’s return, but this saga is dragging on and on. I mean how can Real Madrid sign Ancellotti within days and we’re still procrastinating over Poch? If the club is serious about signing him (as is being reported) and Poch is keen to return (as is being reported) then what’s the problem? Poch should resign and Spurs should pay PSG compensation. Simple.

Can it be that Spurs are using the Poch situation to drive season ticket sales and that Poch is leveraging the situation to get more control at PSG?

This has all the hallmarks of more corporate mismanagement by our club. I fear we’re going to end up with a manager that is not suitable, but will be chosen purely because all other candidates have either turned us down or Spurs are just not willing to pay what is necessary to sign them. Money talks in football. Contracts mean very little. Penny pinching means even less.

Hopefully I will be proven wrong, but it just seems like Levy is making the same mistakes all over again…..trying to drive the hardest deal or spend the minimum amount of money.

Far better to use the time researching the far reaches of Europe for your conference campaign...

Some ITK from SC who was tipped off about Conte weeks ago is claiming he is in the money.

I see Mongspurs has put up another shatarticle lol

This affects the recruitment of new players/ selling existing players and overall pre-season preparation

It's the 2nd of June. A week or two extra is not gonna hurt. The window opens in at the end of the month and some of our players will be involved in playing internationals. A little more patience is needed. I get the frustration though!

Window opens June 9th. I get your point but giving more time to Levy and Hitchen doesn’t fill me with confidence. Two of the most unqualified football men for a silverware focussed squad and management rebuild.

I was just about to respond to this after the first paragraph and then I saw this...

"Can it be that Spurs are using the Poch situation to drive season ticket sales and that Poch is leveraging the situation to get more control at PSG?"

Which is exactly what I was going to write. I wonder whether this was the entire communication between Levy and Poch. I think it's perfectly feasible that a deal has been struck between the pair to help each other out. Construct a 'flirting' lie between Spurs and Poch to raise season ticket renewals for Spurs and in turn make PSG dance to Poch's tune as a "please don't go" response. In other words, "sack Leonardo or I'm off".

I think, assuming Poch stays at PSG, we'll know more about Levy's intentions when we get an idea of the person he actually selects. If we end up getting Conte then you could argue that the courting of Poch was genuine as he's willing to fork out for a big name manager in Conte. The desire is there. If he goes for Ten Hag or lower on the financial risk scale, then I think it's fair to say that Poch and Conte weren't ever a consideration as Levy wouldn't have sanctioned it on a financial level. They both require a similar outlay - they'll both want assurances big money will be spent. ETH will not.

The more this drags on, the more I'm thinking ETH will be our man. That, for me, confirms that the Poch / Conte stories were nothing but a shameless push for ST renewals and should be the final straw for fans that have had enough with being pawns in Levy's game. How much longer are we going to put up with this?

I'm done if it's not Poch or Conte.

Leeds fan in peace:
I'd love to know what kind of regard (or lack of) Spurs fans hold for Daniel Levy because as an outsider he just seems like a bloke with little regard for the fans and, considering he's a mega-successful businessman, he has an astonishing lack of nous when it comes to appointing (and sacking) managers. As an outsider, I'm admittedly not well versed in the ins and outs of what goes on behind the scenes at Spurs but who told Levy it was a great idea to sack Pochettino, seemingly one of your most loved managers and with a decent track record there. And then bring in Mourinho, a man notorious for getting two good seasons (max) out of his teams before losing the dressing room, and who cost the club an estimated £30m (as stated above). Then trying to get Pochettino back again. With respect, to most non-Spurs fans this guy is a joke – or is there something the outside world is missing?

If you scour the internet, you will still find plenty of Levyista`s and ENIC apologists out there, wallowing in the last 20 years of abject failure. In their delusional eyes, ENIC are doling a fantastic job, and to them, success is Levy taking a rival chairman to the cleaners over a transfer, not silverware.

As another poster mentioned the other day, some of our fans have been following Levy like sheep for so long now, that they now have some kind of weird ENIC Stockholm Syndrome, whereby they agree with everything their abusers (Lewis, Levy and ENIC) do, and refuse to accept any kind of criticism directed their way.

I genuinely fell sorry for these people, they are probably still throwing their money Levy`s way and can`t wait for another trophyless season.

Nobody was moaning about Levy, when Spurs were top four regulars.

I personally think he has done an enormous amount for the club. When you think of some of the Chairman Spurs and other clubs have had, then he has be be thanked a lot. As a Leeds fan, you should be an expert in having dodgy chairmen.

Yes you're 100% right about our dodgy chairmen, which is why this subject is so close to the bone. The last two much-respected chairmen we had were Manny Cussins in the 60s/70s and Leslie Silver in the 80s/90s and it is no coincidence that they presided over the two most successful periods in Leeds' history. As with the aforementioned pair, the current chairman Andrea Radrizzani has always listened to the fans, invested wisely, and had a plan for the future. That's proven to me that a chairman plays a vital part in the success of a club. I'd love to see Spurs break the dominance of Chelsea and Arsenal on a long-term basis but I don't think Daniel Levy has a long-term plan. At least, not one that's working.
