Another Day, Another Bruising From A Former Spurs Coach
By Harry Hotspur -

The deal with José Mourinho that many fans either wilfully opted to ignore or were genuinely ignorant to, is that all we got at Tottenham was that same that happens at just about every side he has managed.

The happy-happy arrival, the falling out with those that do not wish to adopt his methods, the swashbuckling-light football, and ultimately the tears and the ignominious exit. So all the jackals that pursued the Portuguese during his short time whilst at Hotspur Way taught us nothing. Nothing at all. Hopefully, some will have been able to have spotted the one difference with us against all those other clubs he’s managed. He didn’t win anything.

Many of us know certain companies are known to a pig to work for, but reputations are built and lost, especially when specific characters are part of the equation. Mourinho has won everywhere he has been so far, EXCEPT at Spurs.

This one, as the phrase goes, is on you, Mr. Levy. A CEO who has overseen virtually no footballing success, in 20 years, then finds himself enduring two months of utter chaos since relieving a coach of his duties speaks volumes.

These quotes from the Daily Mail are damning.

Levy is on a hiding to nothing now with Mourinho (and I’m not defending Levy, merely highlighting he is great at creating these lose/lose situations). IF Mourinho doesn’t win anything at Roma… it kinda shows that Levy knows hows to pick a busted-flush manager, one past his best. IF Mourinho wins something at Roma it shows that Mourinho can win stuff almost everywhere EXCEPT at Tottenham (which highlights just how much Levy backed Mourinho when he needed it).

We have a football loser as CEO and every one at the club takes their lead from him.

Daniel, “I want to win but just not now”, Levy.

I guess it boils down to how cheap we are really being, glimmer of hope: Ten Hag or Conte reneg, if we just want free: Benitez or Galtier and if we are basement for all of those calling for the likes of Parker Alladyce or simply think honours are king regardless of competitiveness…take a closer look a Wilder( he’s honours were probably harder fought than Celtic or Shakhtars) and he can’t even get a job in the championship 😂

It was never going to work our with Jose because he needs major backing and Levy doesn’t back any manager properly. I feel Jose was overly confident in his restorative powers and suites Levy. Levy then assured Jose, both of them were misleading each other…

Backing isn’t just buying players.
I feel Jose accepted it was a multi year thing to get a squad that resembled what he wanted. Though the orginal agreement i believe was changed, whether Feb or March and came to a head when Jose was sacked.
But an account will always look at things through the lens of a spreadsheet.

Mourinho talks sh1te that’s why he is currently starring on Talksh1te. He can hardly say he was misled on the project. Its there for all to see. A club with a couple of worldclass players playing in a shiny new stadium with limited funds for player recruitment which is direly needed.

I feel Jose was over confident and lLevy promised more than he gave. However, neither do I feel Jose was naive about anything regarding Levy. He just probably expected a bit more flexibility here and there. Levy is a lier though, I think that’s pretty obvious.

Levy would’ve done what he always does. Promises the world, delivers nothing.

He tells managers, players and fans what they want to hear. He’s good, because we and they all for for it.

Haha Jose is right about Levy’s so called “project” which in actual fact is to make enic as much money as possible before the fans realise what is happening and riot.

I’ve already posted this elsewhere, but this quote alone is reason enough to steer clear of Klinsmann:

“Spurs fans want to see entertainment. They would rather lose 4-3 than win 1-0, that’s up to Arsenal. We’d rather score goals!”

Smacks of the “Tottenham DNA” last evident in the 5-4 cup loss at Everton. I don’t want to see more of that. I want to see steps – even baby steps – towards recovery.

More worryingly from a supposed model pro, Bayern team captain Lahm wrote in his autobiography that Klinsmann’s tenure with the club was a “failure” and that Klinsmann’s lack of tactical instruction required the players to meet before kickoff to discuss strategy.

There’s going to be an awful lot of diving along the touchline if he takes the job.

Some very short memories around. Klinsmann left after the first year of his contract instead of taking the option of a second year, which was perfectly fair but quite annoying for the supporters. He then returned for one last hurrah / payoff when he was well on his way out. Apparently he saved us from relegation that year, but I think that could have been any half competent striker.

He’s hardly set the world alight with either his managerial success or style of play. To translate, he’s won naff all and his teams lurch from one tactical idea to another quite randomly.

Just because he played well for one season in no way gives him any credit when it comes to being a potential manager.
