Mourinho Sacking Has Only Increased Chances Of Kane Leaving Tottenham
By Harry Hotspur -

Whilst many will be whooping and cheering the exit of José Mourinho from Tottenham today, the stark reality is that has only heightened Harry Kane’s focus to reevaluate where he is in terms of his career path.

A source close to the club told The Boy this afternoon that Harry Kane’s respectful tweet towards the Portuguese spoke volumes, saying, “Kane really bought into José and sincerely believes that his trajectory as a player was enhanced by Mou’s time at Spurs. H is properly saddened by what’s happened today, he’s too old for another rebuild”.

There is a lot to assimilate from all of today’s news; from the articulated truck that is the European Super League – to the sacking of Mourinho. But by the same token, all that will count is how Spurs fair post-Mourinho.

Can Spurs keep Kane is now the story and will continue to be the story for the rest of the season. Removing Mourinho has once more left the club a state of flux.

This is patently true and obvious.. And the bookies odds are reflecting this.

Wow. That’s a bad sign. Can’t blame the lad though. He’s been exemplary in every way and I wish him much success even if it’s not with us. It should have been though.

The bookies aren’t always right, but I read somewhere he was 2 to 1 to go now.. Couldn’t blame the lad, but he’ll break my heart, and really wouldn’t want him staying in England… Either Manchesters would be a nightmare.. Or Woolwich.

Personally I don’t feel getting rid of Jose will have any impact on Kane’s future. If he hasn’t dissed out Levy’s priorities by now he never will…

I think it’s pretty obvious that Levy lies and makes predictions about where he ‘expects’ us to end up and then also throws a load of money at the particular individual that he’s trying to hoodwink at the time. In the end people get bored of being spun a yarn…

The minor potential upside from the sacking is that clubs can have a temporary bounce after they have sacked a manager , and strange as it might seem, I feel we have a better chance on Sunday now that Mourinho has gone. Unlike HH with whom I seldom differ on most of his comments about the club, I never believed that Mourinho was the right manager for Spurs. We had the right manager in Poch but he wasn’t backed. My money is on Allegri, particularly since the ESL has been announced and there is no compensation to pay. It appears that Jose has gone for far less money than the £30 mill that was purported. The romantic in me would have preferred it if THFC had refused to join the ESL which is a complete anathema to sport in general. Does this now make it easier for Enic to sell Spurs as any buyer would be able to see that we will be in a better place as a “top six club”. Typical nonsense from the Americans who like a closed shop in their sports. It was exactly the same when the Yanks were allowed to participate in buying UK stockbrokers during Big Bang which spoilt the ethos of the City of London forever. Greed always wins in the end and there is no doubting Lewis and Levy’s greed. They make me sick.

As usual, you have got it wrong. I thought that Poch did a great job for Spurs, please read Andros Townsend’s comments about what a shambles Spurs were in when Poch arrived and how he put it right. I suspect that Poch, after five and a half years of Levy had had enough. If he had been supported, which he requested some time before the CL final, who knows what might have happened. It is not a question of blind loyalty to an ownership that is only interested in enriching themselves. I gave my qualified support to Mourinho as I never felt that he was the right manager for Spurs but I hoped he would be successful. He is a busted flush whose tactics are out of date and he played cr*p football without getting the results. The difference between me and you is that I can see who is responsible for the mess the club is in. I have supported Spurs since 1962 but I freely admit that I loathe Enic and Spurs for the leeches they are. If you wish to continue with your mindless support for an ownership who treats the fans with complete contempt, feel free but don’t try and convince me that Lewis and Levy have any other agenda apart from enriching themselves.

The phrase there use to be a football club over there is nearly 40 years old, the game and financing is totally different though at the same time, I don’t think Levy/enic should get the free ride they get off alot of the fan base. But clubs don’t need fans to operate so they can do as they wish with impunity knowing most fans will always support their club regardless.

Interestingly, many pundits (most of those I’ve seen) are just now piping up:

“Shocking timing”
“His record warranted more time”
“It’s the players’ fault”
“Average players can get excellent managers sacked”
“He never had good enough defenders”

They spent the best part of 17 months lambasting Spurs under Jose for apparently horrid football, helping get him fired, and now they come out with this. F…ing miscreants.

But sure, Ryan Mason on an interim basis is just the ticket to tell Kane and our other two good players that we’re serious this time around.

The timing might be strange the outcome I think probably not and I can’t see how he would have survived at the end of the season. Jose was a vanity project from a star struck Levy to get a bounce out of an under invested squad.
That hasn’t happened. On current form taken from the Liverpool home match we would be 18th in the league and the football has been appalling. The players recruited under his watch have impaired not improved the squad.
I think it’s been a miserable 17 months for all parties and I think Jose himself might be pleased it’s come to an end.

I think that’s part of a wider picture about those who he played and those who he didn’t. If you are getting results you can justify excluding players if you are not people will ask questions. Excluding Bale how many of the players recruited in the three windows he had are any good? One I suggest

A player of the level of Gareth Bale and you don’t or can’t use him in your team, only Mourinho would have this incredibly strange kind of mentality.

Maybe because nowadays you can’t have a 31-year-old luxury player who doesn’t really track back and often chooses to get substituted for no apparent reason? He did the business against Burnley and Palace, which is nice, but ludicrously little at the wage he gets from the club.

To some extent, it baffles me that Bale STILL gets a free pass after what we’ve seen. It’s now April and we got about three good performances out of him.

“But he hasn’t played.” He has played enough in the cups and sometimes in the league, and did little to show he warrants a place on the team.

It will be telling what happens with Bale from now on. Will Mason play him and show Jose was the one at fault, as ever? I doubt it, but from today, I will hope to be pleasantly surprised by the new direction.

I don’t doubt he’s glad to be gone from this shambles. I am bothered about two things:

1) Pundit and media dishonesty – they hounded him out and now say he deserved more time. Unsurprising, yet horrible.

2) Why bring Jose in if we’re going to saddle him with Sanchez, Dier et al., and not back him properly, i.e. give him at least two/three windows like Klopp got at Pool? And will we back the next guy or will he be another waste of everyone’s time?

When we were making pots of money at the old stadium he never really backed Pochettino. When the stadium catastrophe came into play there was no money at all, hence the two ‘brave’ windows of no signings. Jose knew the score perhaps he thought the squad was as good as Levy

I think people are surprised at the timing not the outcome. All the issues that characterised his last days at Chelsea and United were evident here. For a coach with no equals, slight paraphrase he failed to improve the performance of the playing personnel, indeed many seemed to have backwards.
Watching the last three away games Villa Newcastle and Everton has been painful. They looked like a side that hadn’t been coached and only got out of jail down in all those games due to Harry.
Levy clearly has no shame. In any post either in business or football he would have gone years ago. I doubt very much whether he back the new manager he never backed the other dozen or so.

I think he improved the team for a time last season. The pinnacle came in the first two or three months this season (beating Utd, City, Arsenal, Soton), but we got done twice by Pool and we never really recovered from afterwards.

The only two ways forward were either signing new players that would fit Jose’s mould, or firing him and starting again with the same people and a different manager. And we will arrive at the same crossroads again, no matter who comes in.

Less than two years ago we went to Goodison and beat Everton 6-2 playing football that even the great Danny Blanchflower would approve of. Last Friday we went back there played 7 defenders a back five plus two holding midfielders and stank the place out. We have seriously regressed, it’s not all Jose’s fault but he is not blameless nor is he a victim

Fine. I suppose we will soon see to what extent our regression was Jose’s doing or the squad deteriorating in and of itself.

The players failed at the end of Poch’s time and during most of Jose’s reign – so I hope people will see that there’s no making a silk purse out of Dier when he gives away goals under the next guy.

Ryan Mason wasn’t even a good player. Interim coach? What credentials does the lad have? Might as well get Tim nice but dim Sherwood back… When Botch was gone they had Maureen walking through the front door the same day.. Now Maureens gone we got Mason.. One step forward, five steps backwards.. Ryan Mason may be able to persuade kane we’re now serious, only if he has become an expert hypnotist.
