Spurs’ Target Has £19M Release Clause [opinion]

By Harry Hotspur -

According to a Turkish source relayed by Korean JoonAng Daily, Tottenham’s current manager, Antonio Conte, has green-lit the transfer for Kim Min-jae. Before we waste your time further, providing an assessment of a player that we have not really seen play, or waffle on about what a game-changer this player will be, let’s re-examine matters.

For one, no Spurs manager green lights anything. The greatest moment of authority, any head coach under Daniel Levy experiences is when they go into the staff canteen and choose what they want to eat and drink.

For two, if Conte is the gaffer when it comes to transfers, why is Paratici’s name suddenly out of the frame?

My suspicion is that this rumour is reheated rubbish, like some uninspiring TV dinner. The quality of many (but not all) Turkish football transfer outlets is frequently poor.

I hope I’m wrong, as the kid looks decent enough, but that whole ‘green light’ nonsense, plus the low strength source business casts a wholly unconvincing shadow…

So KMJ is a possibility via a Turkish source reported in Korea relayed via a British blog. Sounds like a done deal! [opinion]

It does niggle me the tosh that comes out.
The recruitment process was on the amazon documentary.
The exception is change the word ‘club’ to Levy.
The only time a manager or coach my use a player by name is to help articulate the type of player they may want when they put in their requests.

For example I’m certain Poch never requested N’Koudoo, he had nothing to do with him and never played him. Basically Levy controls all this based on the price of the player and his desire to make money on him in any future sell-on. Sure the manager might request a certain type of player, but in actual fact gets the cheapest option in that category that Levy, based on information from his DoF, can scramble around and find.
Another example from the past would be Rednapp wanting Tevez to bolster our attack when we were in with a chance of competing for the title, he got Saha on loan. I believe we also got Nielson on loan in that window. Levy as usual showing zero ambition and bean counting.
People who think our managers of the past had any control over our signings are naive. The most they can request is the type of player they need, so Poch wanted an AM to replace Eriksen – a Bruno Fernandez type player. He got Lo NoShow on a loan deal with unfortunately the option to buy. He certainly never asked for this player by name. Levy combining with the DoF would find somebody and the final say would come down to Levy and he would negotiate the deal. Anybody who thinks somehow Poch found this player and then negotiated the loan to buy deal is living on a different planet.

Yep the type of player list goes to the person in recruitment, then the list of deals that could be done goes to levy.

And he expects any turds to be buffed up for a big profit on an eventual sale.we’ve signed so many players “you need to Google” it’s untrue. Is it any wonder that we don’t win anything?

I thought the way Comolli and Levy attempted to replace Keane and Berbatov with Bent and Pavluchenko was utterly laughable from a football perspective. Levy is just a clown when it comes to football, the trouble is that he takes everyone else for clowns too. He’s just an arrogant plonker…
