“This is a sackable offence” Pundit slammed after kneejerk comment
By Bruce Grove -

It is safe to say that Jamie O’Hara is not what you would call a tier-one pundit but he certainly has his supporters on social media.

The former Tottenham player was speaking on Sky Sports and like most pundits went for the jugular after yet another bad performance from Jose Mourinho’s side.

The 34-year-old is certainly opinionated and judging by some of the responses to his comments, his strong views are widely shared.

Football Daily posted up a tweet with a video of O’Hara spouting his pearls of wisdom and some fans were not slow in agreeing with the former Billericay Town midfielder.

There were some that found it within themselves to attack O’Hara for his comments but that was always to be expected, the club’s fanbase is split right now between those that blame Mourinho and those that place the blame elsewhere.

Here are a few responses to what O’Hara had to say.

Kneejerk reaction it is not. Aside from a half dozen or so games, the football under Mourinho has been abject. Levy for whatever reason decided not to back Poch, the most successful coach we had witnessed during Levy’s tenure. That decision must currently be haunting him. If the grounds were full, Mourinho would have been hounded out long before last nights shameful capitulation

Blimey, that’s not saying much.

This is how much money levy net spent on players these last 5 years https://www.transferleague.co.uk/premier-league-last-five-seasons/transfer-league-tables/premier-league-table-last-five-seasons only 3 teams spent less than us. I think with the players we have we are actually over achieving.

So long as Levy remains in charge of the football side of things nothing will ever change. We can talk about clear-outs and rebuilds but what we need is a recruitment strategy lead by people who know what they are doing and who will not have to deal with Levy’s micro-managing. Levy needs to stop trying to rinse every last penny for players who either don’t want to be at Spurs or are surplus to requirements. He likes to pretend Spurs are an elite club but then peppers the squad with Stambouli’s NJie’s and N’Koudu’s. There is no contingency planning. When an Eriksen is in his pomp we should always be looking out for his successor, gradually blooding them into the team so that they are oven ready when the inevitable happens. Instead we get 18 months of will he won’t he, everybody know what the eventual will be but when it does happen we are left swinging in the breeze bringing in players at the last minute who take a season to get their act together. We are not going to make CL football now and it is inevitable Son and Kane will go which should generate significant fees but I wouldn’t trust Levy one iota to spend the money wisely.

I agree completely. I have been saying the same thing over many posts. The sheer incompetence of Levy in all footballing matters is quite staggering, particularly in his approach to the transfer market. It is a given that if we sell Kane and Son that he will make a complete horlicks in buying new players, but one wonders if all the money will go on player recruitment rather than on paying off some the enormous debt. We should console ourselves with the fact that Kane and Son will probably be with us next season because he will overprice them.

To add to the despair we would have faced Villarreal in the quarters and possibly Arsenal in the semi-finals of the Europa League.

Spurs in a final towards the end of the season, with a chance of glory, covering up the cracks, but the team is falling apart, the Premier League form is dismal. Been there done that.

Poch had to remove his share of deadbeats and Mourinho must do the same or they will remove him.

Winks is more worried about not making the England team for the Euros, I kid you not.

Sissoko as somebody said is a semi-disinterested spectator. He’s a leader in the dressing room, God help us. Remember the look of disbelief on Jose’ face in the Amazon Documentary on hearing this.

Aurier, its all been said before.

Dier, a clumsy oaf.

Fill in the rest yourself.

I have a feeling that Mourinho may be given an opportunity to bring in new players because Levy will want to avoid paying out the termination clause and will also want to save face having appointed Mourinho. We know that players will have to be sold to bring in new players. The money needed means it will have to be star players and just like with Bale I believe Kane and Son may depart and that money may be used to give Mourinho a fund to bring in new players. Either that or Levy will do a deal with Mourinho to go on gardening leave and a new young manager will come in and the brief will be to bring in young players with the potential to increase in value and we will be back to another “project” and groundhog four-year cycle of excuses for not winning anything

If we got 250 mil for Kane, Son, Ali, Sissy, Winky, Aureola & Diar; Levy would probly spend it on 15 players with ‘potential’ for the eventual sell on profits.

Anyone would think O’Hara had achieved something in his career.Unfortunately opinions are like ar*eholes,everybody has one.

This is the big problem with social media that people like O’Hara think they are relevent.

Sure. Sack the wasters who threw Poch under the bus and are throwing Jose there too. In with players who will fight for the shirt and understand the pride in wearing it.

I’m not sure whether you are being sarcastic.The fact is,to completely rebuild is totally impractical particularly in the current situation.Also it is an approach that Levy would never undertake.Sadly with ENIC here nothing will change.

Impractical now – though for all the “difficult times” talk, Villa, West Ham, Newcastle and others still sign players.

Transfers were needed two seasons ago, so this is just another bit to add to the pile of ENIC mismanagement.

They didn’t do it when it was necessary and possible. Now, we can’t overhaul the squad, but if they didn’t neglect it to such an extent, no overhaul would be needed.
