“Don’t tell me that squad isn’t good enough to beat that side yesterday” Conte’s rant will not surprise Levy
By Bruce Grove -

Former Crystal Palace owner, Simon Jordan says Daniel Levy understands who he selected when he made Antonio Conte the newest Tottenham manager.

Because of that, the Italian’s admission that there is a lot of work to do at the club following the 2-1 loss to NS Mura would not surprise the chairman.

The former Chelsea boss inherited a talented, but underperforming set of players at Spurs and was outraged by their performance last night.

After the game, he said “the level at Tottenham is not so high” as reported by Express Sports.

Jordan believes the side he put out against Mura was more than capable of beating the Slovenian side.

But Conte’s post-match comments did not surprise him and he warns Levy to expect more of it.

“If you’re Daniel Levy, you would know what you’ve signed as a manager. If you didn’t then you shouldn’t have taken him on board,” Jordan said on TalkSport.

“Because I don’t assume Antonio Conte was a shrinking violet in the negotiations about what he wanted from Tottenham.

“From how much he gets paid, who he brings with him to what he expects the support mechanism to look like.

“Whatever you say about not being a magician, please don’t tell me that squad isn’t good enough to beat that side yesterday.”

The Boy Hotspur Says

Conte has inherited a very poor Tottenham squad even though we like to think our players are better than they actually are.

He needs all the support he can get from the club to make this team good again and I suspect that will cost some significant money.

Ideally, the flops from yesterday’s match shouldn’t play for us again, but it’s over six months before the summer transfer window reopens.

We can only pray Conte gets good performances from them between now and the end of the season.

Did Jordan even watch the game or watch spurs in the last couple of years. Clearly he hasn’t to come out with a comment like that.

On paper we should beat them. But unfortunately the game isn’t played on paper. Even if it was I’ll still expect spurs to struggle.

The personal isn’t there for squad rotation because half aren’t good enough and the other half don’t care.

Dier has to go. He is playing ok for now. But started the same under Jose. But has so many mistakes in him.

Sanchez again too many mistakes, has to go.

Winks isn’t good enough. Allo a waste of time. Ndombele isn’t interested. Doherty I can’t get my head around why he is playing well for us. But plays well for Ireland.

A serious clear out is needed in January. Just accept the highest bid for these players, or just do what we did with Serge pay them off to get rid. Or cheaper option plant illegal substances on them and terminate their contracts for free. Can’t be any worse than playing them.

If Conte isn’t backed in January don’t bother expecting him to be here for the summer window. Because he will be long gone by then.

I mean he’s right though, half that team are seasoned internationals.

I love Simon Jordan , the Missus and I have have a 20% life like model of Simon on our mantelpiece..when we can’t resolve our differences rather than row we kneel in front of our Spirit Guide Simon and if it comes in my hair I am right and if it comes in her hair she is right….he brings us peace…..What Simon Jordan fails to understand is that significant members of the squad used last night can’t be ars-d , which is the point…

I can say hand on heart that with all the previews I had read or seen on ‘tube fans were forgetting how bad we are.
I saw bloggers predicting 4-0 I must admit I expected a narrow win (2-1) I thought they would score and I recall Harry alluding to that as well but lose 2-1 was not on.
Oh well at least we can look forward to The Tony’s in Jan he will shake the club up for sure.
I recently saw one of the better commentators say “Daniel is backed into a corner now” oh tell us about it.

Levy is an utter failure at football if he was not so close to Lewis he would have been moved years ago.

I had a sinking feeling when I saw Doherty, Sanchez, Alli and Ndombele in the same team.
