I awoke early and took the dog out into England’s green and pleasant land, 400 acres of somebody else’s countryside to choose from, but today we opted to head up to the orchard as this now home to dozens of sheep. The dog and the sheep appear to enjoy the stand-off on either side of the gate.
Returning home and Spurs news has gone from an endless back and forth of speculation about managers we’ve all heard of, to a photo of some guy in a Zorro outfit.
Then we have those fans who believe that a Director of Football at Spurs means something.
Which stance reminds me so much of this sketch.
Fonseca is a man that would, should he sign for Tottenham, be on his 12th appointment as a coach. To date, his biggest successes have been in Ukraine Ukraine, where his side Shakhtar Donetsk swept the board under his guidance, winning the Ukrainian Premier League: 2016–17, 2017–18, 2018–19; the Ukrainian Super Cup: 2017 and the Ukrainian Cup: 2016–17, 2017–18, 2018–19.
To me, Fonseca does not look like the man to get a tune out of our existing stars, nor does he look like a man to keep Harry Kane at Tottenham.
If Conte’s polite refusal has told us much, then it was nothing that we didn’t already know. Under ENIC, Spurs are simply looking to harvest top four and broadcasting monies. Forever.
