“Tottenham spell will end in tears” One Tabloid Is Quick To Write Off Conte Appointment

By Harry Hotspur -

Whilst many fans are making merry at Tottenham appointing yet another blue-chip coach, there is an undercurrent of doubt attached to Daniel Levy’s latest managerial acquisition.

The Sun cites two years of turmoil at London rivals Chelsea, which whilst successful in terms of securing silverware, also ended in litigation with the Blues where Conte and his staff being paid off to the tune of £9million to walk away from the Bridge, not to mention a further £85,000 for Antonio himself for ‘wrongful dismissal’.

The article is a wall-to-wall account of angst, anger, and recriminations, charting across virtually every managerial post the Italian has ever held.

So what does the future hold for Daniel Levy? Will he loosen the leash and let Conte construct a squad that he deems worthy of his expertise.

I take a view that those Tottenham fans who didn’t care for José Mourinho will soon struggle to get behind an even more temperamental gaffer. What larks.

A torrid romance always ends in tears but its hellish fun along the way and so make the most of it while you can. Conte will certainly have the crowd on their feet so come along for the ride.

We’re getting a world class manager at his prime, we’ve never experienced that before. Mourinho had been sacked from his last 2 jobs and his star was on the wane. Surely Levy has chosen Conte for a reason, surely Levy knows Conte won’t stand for bullshine and will walk the minute he’s not backed properly. Has the penny finally dropped?
Has Levy been backed into a corner and been humiliated by the chanting on Saturday? Just maybe this is a turning point. What I’m hoping is with Conte and Paratici onboard Levy is finally going to relinquish control of the footballing side of things. Levy is a pain in the backside but he’s not stupid enough to go against Conte surely? He knows the fanbase will worship the ground Conte stands on and nobody will take Levy’s side in any dispute. I do believe he has backed himself into a corner, all we need to do now is close the lid on Levy’s box and get on with winning things. Like a naughty little child Levy should be seen and not heard. I want to listen to and read about the things our 2 Italians are saying, I don’t want to hear anything from Levy ever again.

I’m fairly sceptical about how this is actually going to work. However there is no doubt about his abilities if he’s allowed to get on with the job his way and as you say, won Serie A last season. He’s current, his star hasn’t faded and it isn’t yet to shine either.

I still can’t get my head around how this will work longer term, but then again an 18 month contract is telling…

Well, most managerial stints end on a low…few carry on and on and retire from a club like Fergie, all smiles

Not if they are the kind of Tottenham fans who were being interviewed about the last bloke before the ManU game last Saturday is anything to go by.

Same players that caused mourinho trouble will do the same to Conte if he doesn’t get rid of them. Dele is one winks is another. Thank God bale has left as he was another. I predict 4 to 6 months of heaven top 4 than things will start falling apart. Conte just like mourinho doesn’t take B S from players OR management ( levy)

Bale scored 11 goals at about 1 per 90 minute we could all do with a problem like that

Exactly, we miss his goals already.

We have definitely missed Bale, this idea that he was consistently useless is just fantasy. Moura, Dele, Stevie B, I’d take Bale over all three of them…

This would be the Bale who has picked up yet another long term injury and scored most of his goals against weak opposition. Can’t imagine Conte being interested in an injury prone has been. If we’re going to progress we need to get in some relatively younger players of quality who are going to contribute consistently, particularly in the tough games and not just when Leicester have switched to playing rush goalie.

I seem to recall him winning the game at Leicester that got us into Europe, also the so called “weaker” teams are usually the ones we historically struggle to pick up 3 points against. He won the game v Brighton too thinking back. Like Eastie says I’d take him over several of our misfits any day.

You can argue about the salary we paid to Bale which incidentally was on a par with that paid to Mourinho but he scored more league goals than Dele, Moura, Vini, Lamela, Bergy combined. If he’s a has been what does it make those clowns?
