Nagelsmann’s Imminent Appointment At Spurs Suddenly Looks Highly Unlikely
By Harry Hotspur -

Matt Law of The Telegraph might be interested in this statement from RB Leipzig’s sporting director Markus Krosche. The rather sensational exclusive Law ran recently suggested that Julian Nagelsmann could walk out on RB Leipzig mid-season in order to rescue ailing Spurs – which will have struck many as far-fetched at best. Speaking to BILD (as quoted here by RB Live), Krosche, when asked about Nagelsmann’s links to London, said: 

“When you do a good job, you arouse desire. But Julian feels comfortable because he has everything he needs here. The team is developing great. That’s why I see no reason for him to switch – especially since he has a valid contract with us.”

Perhaps Markus Krosche isn’t in the loop and only Matt Law and Nagelsmann himself fully understand just how close Spurs are to shipping the 33-year-old into North London.

I take a view this type of speculation is not just unhelpful, but disrespectful to both Leipzig and Mourinho. Elsewhere, today we have seen national newspapers adding to the white noise surrounding Mourinho, The Express being one and The Independent have yet another poison pen job from Miguel Delaney, which despite its many hundreds and hundreds of words, affords not one paragraph to the state of the Spurs squad, and all those in it that ought to have been shunted on long ago.

When you have veterans like Eric Dier swerving responsibility for his own repeatedly unsatisfactory actions, after 7 unremarkable seasons at the club, you really do know you’re in trouble.

He was never coming to Spurs. Just made up nonsense from the media and Spurs fan Mourinho haters. It’s all they ha e to cling onto in the hope he’s leaving sometime soon.

newsflash … He ain’t going anywhere anytime soon

Ya know what, this really p!sses me off! We have literally one of the most successful managers in the history of football. The guy has won the league in 4 different countries, 3 of which are in arguably the top 5 leagues in the world. If after 5 seasons we’ve won nothing then fine, have a dig, but until then I’m happy to wait and see. Very happy actually.

For the cost of sacking Jose and bringing in Nagelsmann you could buy a half decent centre back…….. Hey Dan, I’ve got an idea

Jose is the big market. They’ll keep writing their crap until the end. He’s the gift that keeps on giving which they exploit to the max….but he ain’t going nowhere this season. There’s a cup for him yet, 1 at least.

Nagelsmann was always nonsense. How much would it cost to fire Jose, buy the German out of RBL – and then still be left with the same tired squad where half the players ought to be replaced and with which no one is likely to do any wonders?

If we’re shopping there, buy Sabitzer. Energetic, good on the ball and has got a goal in him. Heard they would take 30M – or 35M, if we include Sanchez in the deal.

I have underpants older than Nagelsmann. When he wins something in the Bundesliga or Europe then I will sit up and take notice. So far all he has done is come 2nd or 3rd in a 3 horse race that is the German league.

It’s never gonna happen. Will cost way too much money to ship out Mourinho and bring in the German. And if we did, we’d have no money for the squad improvements that are so desperately needed.

Pity that. I bet he was really chomping at the bit to turn Sissoko, Davies, Sanchez, Dier, Winks, Doh!!!!erty, Bergwijn and even Ndombele in to Europe’s elite.

Even so, money talks and RB Leipzig are selling his best defender, having sold Werner this season. Selling your best players, season in-season out, is not a successful model to win trophies consistently. If any chairman offers him enough money and incentive then he’ll go. At the moment, Spurs have neither.

Rodgers would be a better bet, not universally popular, but the jobs he did at Swansea, Liverpool, Celtic and now Leicester, he has to be taken seriously, has a lot of youth in his teams and mostly the football is easy. on the eye, as well as keeping it tight at the back. Hopefully Jose can inspire us to a strong finish, but we do need a clear out (again) Lloris, Aurier, Doherty, Sanchez (Dier i am 50/50 on – squad player though) Sissoko, Winks, Berg and Lamela, can all be sold on. bring Skipp back for Winks and Sees can fight Reglion for LB.Japhet and Rodon, I would like to see play together. and bring in some quality with the money generated.

Totally agree. Rodgers is all about making players better and his football is watchable, unlike Jose who needs top players to win (same with Pep) by more pragmatic means. A clear out of that magnitude though can’t happen in one window, even if all fans want it to. Sell some, loan some, throw some on bonfires. If we were to sell 8 and give the 2 loanees back we would need at least 6-7 replacements. We all know what went on the last time we tried that.

On a different note we can’t play the uefa game the same day as arsenal as both home so as arsenal fa Cup holders or something they get to keep their game as it is we have to switch game round and play home game first against dynamo. Who do we play three days later arsenal. Hope this is true they have to go to Greece then play us would give us a slight advantage

I got an unnecessary NHS letter today worded for maximum psychological blackmail and guilt saying I’m “eligible” to get the vax i’ve already declined…..complete with a full colour “covid” booklet at the tax payers expense. Worms.

Your All for that then? People’s freedom of movement and rights taken for a medical matter, a vax that doesn’t even stop you getting or spreading it.

This country is finished.
Don’t worry all you terrified fascists it won’t long before all the “refuseniks” will be denyed food and basic healthcare so we will all be dead.
That’ll delight you no doubt.

I’ve no problem if someone wants it. It’s the people who don’t being made into pariahs that’s the issue. Plus they’re holding our lives hostage unless we get vaxed. None of us can live like this. It’s wrong. They’ve had some medical bod today on saying he’s telling people he’s vaxed to follow the rules still, it’s a joke. Stay strong fella.

If someone like you infects me, I have the tools to deal with it. I see the vac as a M16. Me will shoot it down. I won’t need to go into hospital to do so, leaving our wonderful NHS free to deal with other things. Covid. “Say hello to my little friend”

“someone like me”??I can’t believe you are talking like that. How dangerous is this?? Talk about division. Your being minipulated mate. They WANT this. The vax DOES NOT stop the you getting it or spreading it. They’ve stated that clearly. Our “wonderfull NHS ” has been turned into a cult. The hospitals are empty mate ffs wake up. No more busy than any other year only now they ain’t treating any other complaint cos of lockdown. If I’m sick, I have the courtesy to not go out. Asymptomatic spread is a proven lie they are STILL pushing to terrify people.

Yes. The North Mid is over run every year. They’ve had problems with A and E there for years. It’s not covid. I’m not being argumentative I’m just worried about people being torn apart by these liers. We can’t look at each other as potential infectors. It’s just not like that. It’s a plan of division like everything.

Ok. I’m a monster. An Irresponsible infector. go on the UK GOV website and it will tell you Covid 19 was declared not a HCID(a highly contagious Infecteous disease) since March 2020.

Theyre unlikely to get it. That’s what it means. It’s not highly infectious. Friends brother who’s immune system is non existent through bad Diabeties was hospitalized and got positive test for covid. He was fine. We will prevail!
