The way that Tottenham has jumped from one PR disaster to another over the last couple of years should have numbed the fans to whatever debacle the club undertakes next but it seems there is no limit to the capacity of Daniel Levy and the board to denigrate our once respected club.
I could go through a long list of “cock-ups” that Levy and his cohorts have subjected us to and it is a long list but what is the point, we all know what has transpired and we all know that there is no imminent light at the end of the tunnel.
Spurs had an opportunity to start fresh after the sacking of Jose Mourinho, they could have made a positive appointment that could have gotten the fan base excited once again and look forward to the new season with a sunny disposition.
But no chance, not with these clowns in charge.
Paulo Fonseca was not an inspiring choice, well, not in my opinion anyway, however, I was prepared to give the man a go, I understood his Roma record was one of transition and that he did well in Ukraine, it could have worked out with the Portuguese.
But that was too easy for Spurs and Levy, why appoint a youngish manager with a vision when you can throw him to the gutter and instead go after a person like Gennaro Gattuso, a volatile poor manager that does his agents bidding.
Even if Levy was justified in having second thoughts about hiring Fonseca, the way in which the club has gone about changing their minds is utterly disgraceful, it is disrespectful, it is amateurish and it is downright sickening.
If it was Jurgen Klopp or Pep Guardiola that was going to be hired instead then maybe you could have had a semblance of understanding at their cack-handed way of handling the situation, even if it would still have left a bad taste in the mouth, but Gatusso, give me a break.
Tottenham is now a joke of a club, it is pathetic and that rests at the feet of Daniel Levy.
I am not one of those that hates the man and believes he is responsible for everything that has gone wrong but this current state of affairs is on him and him alone.
Gattuso could be a success, I doubt it very much, time will tell but this episode will live long in the memory and this could now be the beginning of the end of Levy’s tenure at the club and right now, that is the only silver lining I can think of it.
