Dear, oh dear, we really are officially in a pickle. The Sun believes that this is what the betting looks like for the next permanent Spurs gaffer, but frankly, after 60 days or wherever we are that list may as well contain Ozzy Osbourne and Martina Navratilova.
Whilst it is conceivable that Paulo Fonseca could not yet be a complete dead duck, it is equally ambitious to believe that Tottenham has had many fruitful conversations in their pursuit of the next poor man to approach the gallows’ steps. It’s been two months since José Mourinho currently sends out a very clear message. One using such words and phrases as ‘no go zone’, poisoned chalice’, and ‘Pfffft’.
Daniel Levy can put out as many videos of him looking cordial and calm as he wishes, but the truth of the matter is that elite clubs do not drift like this – especially not with these debt levels.
Shambolic is being kind.
