Watch the embargoed section of Conte’s presser, which is unlikely to go down well with Levy
By Harry Hotspur -

This section of the presser was supposed to be about the game at Turf Moor on Sunday. That’s not my opinion or suspicion. That is how the pressers always work, and this was precisely how the THFC media wallah referred to it in the previous section. As you can see, nobody was interested in that, and this was in fact a continuation of the Mura autopsy.

One doesn’t need to read between the lines here, and none of this is likely to go down well with Levy…

“I am ready to do what the club want to do ……. but the situation is very clear”.

As is so often the case with manager speak – so many words but so little said. The degree of ambiguity in the first half of that sentence makes a mockery of the second half.

It was said when Conte joined he would have to get used to Levy being at the training complex.I wonder if he showed his face there today?

Though he took the full squad, he did the same as NES and played our B team apart from Kane and Skipp.. They have to do better… Hopefully Conte gets to overhaul the squad same as Botch was allowed to. One, maybe two summer transfer windows with a good few players coming and going needed. The players have to be fighting for their jobs now.

In the 2nd half it was no B squad was it? When exactly was your mate Pochettino allowed to overhaul his squad? Would that be in the 3 transfer windows when Levy didn’t spend a penny?
“They have to do better” is a bit of an understatement for the worst result in THFC history bar none!
Shambles. All of a sudden the Pochettino years look more rosy don’t they? Granted no cups, but a manager can only do so much from the touchline. You need to lighten up on the guy imo.

This bunch of misfits and wasters aren’t capable of doing better.

Second half we were a man down, 4 first teamers came on. The rest still b team… My mate? Shut up you wally… Obviously I’m not talking about the 516 odd days of no signings, which was after half a decade… I’m talking about Botches first 4 years. He was given time and he bought players in. And many were out the door. Adebayor, Townsend and many more were soon shifted….Botch made 27 signings and 40 odd went out the door.. He told us repeatedly around the time of Sissoko signing that no player came in without his nod. He was berry appy for 5 long years…. Of course they have to do better. How is this an understatement?… No the Botch years wasn’t particularly rosy from my eyes, he infamously preferred working with a small squad which left us short at the end of every season. He overtrained players, this and the small squad racked up injuries. He was throwing cups. Strange decisions. Late ineffective subs. He was a victim of his own downfall by being a patsy… And he said he was leaving anyway if he won the CL… Look at Botches squad when he took over and then 6 years later when he left…… Now let Conte do the same and change all those players (alot are Botches flops) 27 players in and 38 out.. Conte will build a winning team.

I don’t need to lighten up either.. You need to get real and stop praising Botch like he’s Sir Alex. He won nothing and some of you bang on like he’s the messiah. It’s strange, and sad.

Positive or negative extremes are rarely very pertinent, the truth is almost invariably between the two. Clearly Podge was no Alex, but given the quality of football his Spurs achieved for a good few years, and the best finishing league positions for half a century, and appearing in the most elite cup final of our club’s entire history, surely must count for something?

I’d argue that, although no messiah, discounting all the above out of hand because the team were ultimately just short of actually winning the trophies, is such a blunt and binary point of view with seemingly little appreciation of what football has to offer outside of the trophy cabinet; which seems itself a tad sad.

I haven’t discounted anything. Botch is a world class coach.. But top manager he still has it all to prove… And come on some Spurs fans bang on like he’s Sir Alex. I think people are remembering him through the old nostalgia goggles.. Kane often carried us through some turgid football at the beginning and end.. And yeah whoopie we can celebrate getting top four while Leicester win the league.. Football is all about winning and that trophy cabinet.. Even at lower levels, it’s what all clubs strive for. It’s why they step out on the pitch… Botch should have won something, he inherited some great players in Walker Rose Jan Dembele etc He bought in some good players like Son and Toby and Trips and built his team.. Top managers would have been winning something with these players.. Especially because at the time all the big guns were either in decline or full disarray.

If the players that Conte wants aren’t forthcoming in January I think he will walk.

He’s not here to mess around and he’ll keep his reputation in tact and the shortage of top managers worldwide means he can take his pick of plum jobs.

If he really wants to make a name for himself he could do so by sorting out the horrible mess he has inherited and making Tottenham successful. He’ll get far more kudos for that

We need at least four in January, two quality midfielders and two defenders.
