Pundit Makes A Rather Ambitious Claim About Levy’s Managerial Quest| video
By Harry Hotspur -

TalkSPORT’s Simon Jordan was previously a Premier League chairman himself, and so perhaps the now pundit is able to empathize with the Tottenham bosses’ extended search for someone to replace José Mourinho some 69 days ago.

Jordan believes that Levy is affording the task due diligence and seeking to get the best he can for Spurs. The only problem is that this process is taking a very long time. The season starts in 50 days, and the transfer window closes in a further 15 days’ time.

I have said it before but in my opinion, the jig is up with Levy and ENIC. They have created a toxic football brand that no manager or player of any real ability wants to be associated with. All the other clubs both in this country and in Europe know that we have to sell to buy. That means that they have Levy over the proverbial barrel when it comes to selling players before buying, It is a given that this squad needs a complete rebuild and anyone interested in Kane knows that without the money coming in from his sale ENIC and Levy will not spend a penny of their own money. Any manager of note has already determined that this is a club in a period of rapid decline with its present owners. The club is weighed down with debt, the owners have no interest in investing in the football business and no desire to win titles and trophies. The existing players know this, potential signings know this, and prospective managers looking to achieve success know this. I truly believe that we are approaching a point in time where removing Levy or selling up may be the only solution as the cat is well and truly out of the bag regarding our present owner’s nonfootball-related objectives. I cannot see any meaningful way forward for THFC under its present custodial ownership.

Let’s properly define a “dizzying offer” – doubling Lopetegui’s salary would still be half of what we were paying Mourinho! So this move (if true) was still trying to do the job on the cheap. Sorry Simon, Levy is still trying to screw every candidates before they’ve even sat down for the interview!

I think Simon Jordan talks a lot of sense but he seems reluctant to accept that Levy has any culpability for pissing in the well that he wants these guys to drink from. His inability to allow managers to manage is probably top of the reasons that these guys are saying “pass”, perhaps along with the reputation he has for changing the rules halfway through the race, telling bald faced porkies and vetoing transfer ins and outs (despite having another manager who’s supposed to do that task).

“If Daniel’s not worried we should not be worried on his behalf” – Simon we are not worried “for” him we are worried “about” him and there are far too many reasons for that; most of which have appeared frequently on this blog!

By the way, the manager’s team of those declining the job is now getting a pretty decent subs bench (more impressive than those of Poch or Jose’s).

It might be that no self respecting football manager who has a good solid CV wants to join ENIC’S FC. The last serial winner who in my opinion was let down by a clique of players got the sack before a cup final.

THFC are now considered toxic. Leeds United bless em have still an integrity about them. The Hotspur Way gang haven’t.

There seems to be no desired manager or short list of specific managers and this scatter gun approach signifies chaos in the camp.
Its obvious no one can make a decision. If there was in reality a plan to go to our so called DNA then the boss and short list would be clear cut, and due to the scale of business you go out to get one of them.
levy did what ever it costed to get the stadium built and wasted a lot of cash on that, every player has a price, it’s time is he should do the same for the manager as in football there is always a way to buy what you want.

15 days till the window shuts?!!? Yeeeeeah, it’s curtains for ENIC fc. Utter utter shambles.

Czechs and Schick do the job, as expected. Clearing the path for England….Tuesdays match decides the winner of the Euros most probably. Defo the finalists.

Levy is managing down expectations, nobody takes 69 days to appoint a coach/manager. Nobody. The knock on effect is obvious. No player movement-in or out. Effectively back to square one with Mason/King to do more temporary stuff. New motto-“temporary is to do”

We’re obviously not convinced by Nuno otherwise we’d have signed him up by now. No impediment apart from self imposed ones. Not sure what Paratici is making of this if Nuno was his first choice. The longer we go without a manager, the longer Levy can put off player sales and purchases. Not sure what Paratici thinks of that either. Mason would be happy to work with this existing squad of deadwood. Who needs Paratici? Just saying…

Seemingly only one manager has openly expressed his unwavering desire to manage Spurs namely Jurgen Klinsmann?!!

Surely his first choice was Conte? Then Fonseca. The geezer can’t even get his third choice manager in ffs.

Conte was the one…..unfortunately our buffoon chairman didn’t want to invest. Will always be a laughing stock with our owners.

No one is asking you to speak ill of the club. We all support the club. It was your apparent defence of Levy in your earlier post that makes no sense at all. Levy is definitely making the club a laughing stock. Don’t you agree?

Not because the club is down does not make Spurs a laughing stack, but hey we can’t all come here opine the same opinion or should we.

The problem for Levy is that any manager at the top of his game will have also done his due diligence and blocked Levy’s number. Or, in the feint hope he gets through will be told thanks but no thanks.

There isn’t a plus side to managing Spurs and they know it.

And we’re in a delicious predicament given that anyone putting themselves forward should be immediately discounted as delusional for thinking they will get investment in the squad, be allowed to succeed or “win” anything other than a large Levy pay off in 18 months.
