Video: Candidate For Spurs Job In London Today For Talks With Levy And THFC Board
By Harry Hotspur -

My understanding from a source close to the club is that Antonio Conte is in London today and will be having talks with Daniel Levy and the Tottenham board.

It is suggested that this meeting will constitute some 180-degree turn from the club, which was previously snubbed by the 52-year-old.

Levy is looking to improve his offer to the former Juventus boss and do what is required to recover this season, which has produced in the main a series of unenterprising football and underwhelming results.

Conte is in a great position to negotiate after having knocked the bald midget back before.For him it has to be all or nothing,who will blink first.

Does anybody else wonder how Conte has allegedly been able to jump on a plane at a moment’s notice,when the rest of us mere mortals have to jump through hoops to comply with UK covid travel regulations
.
Much the same as Biden going to the green conference in Glasgow with an 85 car motorcade in tow.You couldn’t make it up.Oh the irony.

So the “make you proud” line becomes a modern day “ticket to the dreams” and we’re back on the merry go round.

It’s hard right now to ignore everyone frothing at the mouth over the prospect of Conte coming in. I always go with the mantra that nothing is happening until you see them holding up the shirt so any talk of Conte, Fonseca or anyone else has to be just that. Talk.

The bigger question right now is what exactly has changed with Conte discussions between the summer and now? We’re led to believe he walked away when he was told he wouldn’t have any say, or even a decent budget for transfers. Did the recent boxing and NFL events suddenly wipe out the alleged Covid pandemic losses that Levy claimed would hold us back in the transfer market for the forseeable?
Let’s face it, the world and it’s dog knows this squad has it’s fair share of deadwood and players still knackered from the 500+ day transfer moratorium. We all know how much previous Levy has for scuppering deals for top talent with last minute discount demands (Eden Hazard a recently disclosed addition to the lengthy list).
So did Levy happen to find some spare money in a suit jacket he hasn’t worn for a while and rang Conte’s agent straight away with a promise of the cash plus clearing the dross?
Or are we to believe that Conte suddenly thinks he can pull off a Mighty Ducks type turnaround story? The Miracle near the Marshes would make a great story to tell the grandkids.

If Levy has finally conceded to provide real funds, why didn’t he just do that in the summer when the plaster was falling off the walls around him?

Maybe the sound of 60 thousand voices chanting Levy Out in unison on Saturday was all that was required after all.
Whoever comes in, we’ll know soon enough if they’ve been given proper support, or merely another promise of jam tomorrow.

If there is any truth in this rumour,and I remain to be convinced,then perhaps the funds available will be from the sale of Harry Kane in January.However those funds will be somewhat depleted now after Levy’s shenanagins in the summer and Harry’s loss of form.

Alternatively Levy may have leveraged more debt against THFC,because I doubt ENIC will be putting any money up.

Your guess is as good as mine, but leveraging more debt sounds plausible.

Whatever is happening, Levy must surely be in self preservation mode right now.

As far as I know we are nowhere near getting a stadium sponser.It is most likely more leveraged debt in the name of THFC or as I suggested above,the sale of Kane.

A mess……..Levy didn’t want him (2 year contract), Nuno didn’t really want the job….but after 70 odd days they both agreed…..10 games is it…..if we don’t get Conte (I like him because its easy to spell), then expect another long shot as Potter won’t leave, Rodgers won’t leave…

Pressure really mounting on Levy now….

Can he afford to be rejected by Conte again so soon?

If he does appoint him he knows for sure he will be called out if he doesn’t support him!

Both good news for the fans as Enic’s head is really on the chopping block now!

I must admit, I’m quite enjoying watching ENIC’s dirty washing being aired in public!

It’s about time our greedy owners are in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons.

If the rumours of Conte coming to negotiate with Levy for a second time are true then I pray conte is astute and makes some stonewall conditions in his contract.

When conte decided to tell levy where to go last time it was reportedly due to the club not meeting his expectations on ambition. This can only be attributed to a request to clear out the deadwood and invest heavily in new talent. Levy wanted him to work with the existing group and develop the youth players.

Conte is a grade A manager. At the top of his game and comparable with the best managers in the game today. Noway will a manager of such calibre take on such a difficult challenge as requested by levy. Why the hell would he?

This negotiation (if true) will be a hallmark moment. Is Levy is about to concede and U-turn on his offer to Conte and accept that a full refurb with a big budget is needed? I have my doubts. Whatever happens, Conte should be attending this meeting with a good lawyer and making some solid conditions that don’t allow levy to squirm his way out as usual.

Of course another possibility is Conte is using this whole circus as a way to gain leverage to negotiate a great deal for a himself with Newcastle.. We shall see

Conte will not agree to a deal if he is not convinced that Levy and ENIC will stump up the necessary investment into the squad going forward. I would assume based on the reported failed attempts last summer to reach a deal he would not bother stepping on a plane to London without reassurances. So where will the money come from for investments into the squad? I would imagine that Kane may now well be on his way in January and that money will be part of the investment into the squad. Plus finally offloading the deadwood that has been hanging around for far too long. Conte is the only game in town that may keep the wrath of the fanbase away from ENIC and Levy. They know that the current form is nosediving towards relegation and that the toxic atmosphere at the stadium is untenable to manage. If Conte is flying in then I suspect Nuno is being shown the back door at the same time and that Mason will be in charge for the European Conference game on Thursday and the Everton match at the weekend with the international break being the time when Conte arrives. What remains however is the fact that Levy and Paratici are having to eat huge amounts of humble pie and have shown that their decision-making is fundamentally flawed as they opted for Nuno even though every man and his dog knew this was the wrong choice. If they fail once again to convince Conte to join it will make both their positions unsustainable in my opinion. It also demonstrates that at the moment the mood of the supporters still holds enormous sway in decision making with ENIC and Uncle Joe who I suspect has been on the hot phone to Levy after the debacle at the weekend. The club is in freefall and everyone can see that both in and out of the club. That is not a good look for ENIC or its funding partners and possible sponsors.

Uncle Joe isn’t interested. I’d be surprised if he even knows whos in our team

He is interested if he perceives that the actions of the club are damaging its value in the eyes of its financial partners and possible sponsors.

Levy would never eat humble pie he just doesn’t have that sense of shame in him.He is never wrong.I’d love to be a fly on the wall listening to him squirm in an attempt to convince Conte that he didn’t really mean to take the piss the last time they spoke.

Turning down Spurs again makes him seem even more powerful and in demand than ever. That’s why he’s doing the meeting. He has no intentions of managing Spurs

Yep. They simply won’t give him the cash to do anything. Unless Levy lies to him and he ends up like Jose. Seems like More bolox to stop a mass cancellation of ST’s

Think/Hope that maybe Daniel is seeing the light, with Fabio in place we should have some footballing ideas . Investing in bricks and mortar is great but maybe investing in the team is next. Daniel has done well to get us to where we are but his plan no longer fits. Fabio and Conte have worked together before so maybe this will work.

Maybe behind the scenes Levy & Lewis have had a change of heart & decided to give Conte control of all transfers within a budget… none of this you have to work with what your given…. I.e. if conte wants to sell someone Levy doesn’t say no… reckon Mourinho will enjoy his breakfast today…🤣

Well unless Levy offers to give him a minimum of £200 million to toy with he will not accept.
