“He’ll be off then” “Nothing would shock me” These fans have heard it all before…

By Harry Hotspur -

We are given to believe that Antonio Conte was made fully aware of what the club can and can’t do when it comes to money and transfers. This may well prove to be true, but hat would have been prior to the Italian witnessing at first hand just how lamentable the Tottenham squad was. Surely, Conte didn’t believe that NS Mura would pull a Zagreb and beat his valiant boys in Europe’s third tier of football?

If Levy’s strategy is to ask a third manager to try and polish unmentionable items, opposed to spend some actual money, the odds of this latest episode at THFC is unlikely to end well.

Alasdair Gold is a rare font of inside information and disinformation; and we can all recall the time when he announced how immensely calm Hotspur Way was, just hours before Mauricio Pochettino was sacked. Then, of course, there was the time we were reassured that Mourinho’s replacement was en route and would be unveiled in 7 to 10 days, which turned out to be a period in excess of 70 days. So maybe, we ought to take comfort in the fact that the source in this instance is not always correct.

Call me cynical, but this looks like the start of Levy shifting focus on transfer activity from winter to summer.
Cue the drip fed narrative via Alasdair Gold about the challenging financial impact of Covid, being a “sustainable” business model, yada yada yada…

I thought Levy bought 2 seasons for his cover of Paratici and Conte, but it seems they may be off then altogether in 1 season 😂😂 Enic/ Levy are unraveling quicker than I thought, Conte lost the plot when he believed Levy&Co promises and words now they got him where they wanted him. he has to plan carefully his next steps of saving his career before it is tainted he needs to take the initiative and put the Baldy egomaniac and his crew in the spotlight and give them a bloody noise and show the world the true face of these parasites I mean Mr Conte fight while you dying don’t be like Mourinho or Pochettino to be used and discarded make sure Baldy egomaniac never survives after he discards you.

Quick buck for the Italian. Gone within 6/8 months.

Klinsmann on speed dial…..the club he loved is gone though.

Just watched the latest Spurs training video. As an FA coach, I would say that the standard of the one touch practice sessions has improved greatly over 4 weeks. Conte clearly sees it as a key component of his training regime.

Much as I think Alasdair Gold is a complete numpty who writes fiction most of the time, no doubt generated by some half wit in our PR department, I cannot believe that he didn’t do his homework on Levy and the club’s playing strength. I believe that the reason that he didn’t come before NES signed was that he didn’t get the assurances that he asked for from Levy. I cannot believe that he wasn’t promised proper funding for transfers when he signed on the dotted line. It is not as if it is a secret that Levy is the tightest man in football with a proven track record of sacking managers rather than backing them. I think the reason that he signed for only eighteen months was to insure himself in case our beloved chairman did not fulfil his promises. The problem for Levy is that he can attract unemployed managers who are at the end of their careers as they look for a large payoff after their inevitable failure but no younger, unproven but potentially good manager like Potter or Nagelsmann want to work for him. The job at Spurs is that oft used phrase on this site as a poisoned chalice. One thing is for sure is that Conte will walk if he’s not backed. Perhaps Levy will be able to use Omicron as an excuse not to loosen the purse strings yet again!

The thing we need to remember here is that Levy has lied to people before, or given ‘assurances’ that he was on then same page as the management. I believe he also did it with Kane when he signed up for SIX years.

Daniel cannot be trusted when dealing with football people, his track record speaks for itself. He see these people as dispensible pawns in his business ‘model’, not people that should be treated with respect in a sporting sense. He will argue that he pays them enough to take it on the chin I suspect. He’s a schmuck…

Absolutely agree that Levy is completely untrustworthy but he is running out of options. If Conte walks which is quite possible as he is not afraid of confrontation, where does Levy go from there? No young and up and coming coach wants to work for him as Levy will destroy their reputation. This was evidenced as to the length of time it took Levy to find a successor to Mourinho. I don’t think Levy likes being booed but even he must know that the jig is up. He has made a lot of money for Enic but his reputation as a competent football administrator is down the drain.

Well yeah, totally agree.

He is one of these owners that wants the Super League, he wants to push things towards the NFL model, possibly eventually with some kind of draught system etc for players. I don’t believe he has any respect for the traditional structure of the game, in fact I don’t think even likes football…

Both he and Lewis have no interest in either football or most pertinently Spurs apart from making money out of the club.

Conte has answered reporters on why he didn’t join in the summer, and he said it wasn’t about the money. He had only just left Inter two weeks before and his emotions were too raw. Right after winning the title with Inter too so it makes sense. The man should have still been celebrating with his old club and players.. The two year contract with an option to extend is no issue either. This is the way managers contracts are going now because they are paid loads and the vast majority are sacked before they see it through. It makes sense for us and him.

Plus Paratici being investigated,,,, OMG this could turn out to be hilarious. And by hilarious I mean we would have achieved new depths of mockery.

Yup, the Itchy Parrot is one of 6 suspects in the criminal investigation called operation Prisma which began last May and is looking into – amongst other things – the falsification of documents such as the ‘issuance of invoices for non-existent transactions’.

This could take ‘Spursy’ to a new level.

Will Paratici even be allowed to work in the industry he’s been investigated in while it’s ongoing? So we have a DOF who won’t be able to do anything and the biggest signing he made for us is also under investigation?

You couldn’t make this sh*t show up, he goes then Conte follows… unbelievable.
