Much Fine-Tuning Still To Be Done On Any Conte To Spurs Deal

By Harry Hotspur -

Looking around social media- the home of instant reaction for better or worse – this tweet from Tom McDermott makes a decent case for being a sane approach to matters. If Daniel Levy does have an agreement in principle, then assembling a coaching staff could well be just problematic enough to delay matters. More people – more problems.

Does Ledley King have a future under Conte? I believe King’s appointment was a political one, which may have some basis in reality, given the downward trajectory of our backline last season.

The mooted sale of Harry Kane and the words “similar standard”, and “English striker” are frankly chilling. I can’t even begin to draw up a list of whom that individual might be. We’ve spent the last how many seasons looking (unsuccessfully) for even a modest backup.

I am absolutely inclined to believe that “Levy jumped quickly” – perhaps similar to a man making a grab for a life jacket on a sinking ship?

There is no similar standard to Kane…Haaland, Lewendoski and Mbappe are either similar, same or better… There is nobody else at that level and Robert is getting on now.

I’ve been constantly checking for a respectable journalist to confirm. I believe this would be about as bigger change as we can hope for( short of selling up 🤞🏻). Just the change in system makes sense, I get last year we were trying to play to our strengths( too much else was comprised ) but we were: weak at centre back, the best out n out full back at the club was Rose(🤦🏻‍♂️) and we have not had a decent double pivot for years. Not saying it’s as simple as throwing an extra man in defence and mid but when you consider we also only really have wingbacks I’m just shocked it wasn’t given more of a go.

What aggravates me the most in all of this…for as much as Conte could be a good choice….Jose was better and Poch deserved better…yet under the back drop of financial ruin and global pandemics, Levy feels he can now back a new guy to the level the previous 2 should have got?

Lets say Kane goes – Only player I can think of that we stand a chance on would be Dybala…untested in PL and very not likely to want to play outside the CL. Plus £100m will not buy the players we need to challenge, will buy us the top 4 maybe (who knows without Kane). If Poch had been given £100m in that infamous “buy no-one” year, we could have won the league or the CL. Even if he had been given Holberg we could have done something. Had Jose been given £100m to sort the team out, I very much doubt he would have taken 18months of changing the defensive unit to realise we dont have a defence, it was clear from the start.

I know we shouldnt moan about the past and just be happy if we mover forward, but every thing about this, from the manager, his wage and his warchest stinks of Levy having his back to the wall – not a plan and a structure for long term success.

I agree, but let’s hope it still happens because the alternative is much worse.

I really hope we get Conte. There is a risk that there’ll be chants of ‘Chelsea Reject, Chelsea Reject” from some other teams (because of Mourinho and then Conte)… but the potential benefits of getting one of the best manager in the world right now, is worth it.

Levy going for Conte might have been a desperate lunge from a deeply unpopular guy… but Conte is a nailed on top class ‘winning’ manager. His tactics could be considered more progressive than many think, and his football though not as free flowing as Poch’s will be quite watchable.

If (big IF) Levy backs Conte in terms of bringing in the players he wants ( Skriniar? Lukaku, Belotti? possibly Sabitzer and Andersen too)… then we’ll have a very interesting season.

Curious what existing Tottenham players Conte will want to ditch, and which ones he can turn around. He has managed to shine some pretty dull t*rds in his time and unleash the diamonds underneath.

Was Mourinho not a ‘top class, nailed on winning manager’? And look what he did!

You misread the tweet it says “striker of a similar standard if the English striker leaves” nothing to do with the possible new strikers nationality. It is a moot point regardless as Kane is the best in the world, looking at Lewandowski, messi etc as being a similar standard

If Levy can get a similar standard to Kane – he will perform a miracle. English or not. 1) Kane is the best in teh world (no equals), 2) anyone even in the same catagory would not come to a non-CL team. 3) anyone in the catagory will not want to be paid what Kane is paid or less. 4) Said players simply want to win stuff. Best we can hope for is a striker that has potential to be as good.

Not trying to go full moneyball but if we can get 2 or 3 to share the load( which we’ve been told not poss with Kane at the club). It could be for the better, it’s what all other clubs do after all 🤦🏻‍♂️, successful ones anyway.

It’s all just hot air until we see the photos. I have no faith in our chairman’s ability to get this done properly.
