Please let it happen. He would probably get them into the top 4 behind Chelsea. Then the fireworks would happen.

I’m told the new manager will be allowed to bring in a couple of older players he’s worked with, most likely Zlatan and Matic. 

 

I guess you could call them the Justified Ancients Of Mou Mou.

The whole situation is hilarious.  It was a catch 22 really.  They’re fucked whatever they do because most of their best players over the good period they’ve had over 3/4 years have turned to shit.  Some are getting old and are leaving, they’ve got the elephant in the room that is Kane and Alli has completely lost whatever he had.

 

Going into this season Pochettino was fucked from the off and I think he knew it.  Kane seemingly has to play every game when fit.  It means the team can’t press and it’s all downhill from there.  They’ve got their new stadium and they seem to think that’s going to attract players.  Money and success is what attracts players and they don’t offer either.  They’ve let that squad stagnate despite hitting gold with 4/5 players.  They didn’t win anything and it’s hard to rebuild from that.  It’s going to cost them Man Utd levels of spending to turn it around and I just don’t see it happening.  It’s great because I fucking hate them and their knobhead fans.

 

The talk of Mourinho is probably the funniest thing about it all.  It’s shows he’s getting desperate.  None of the big clubs have shown any interest because he’s toxic, his football is shite and his tactics are outdated.  He’s past it and everyone knows it.  He doesn’t stand a chance with money any more so god knows how bad he will do without it.  It’s a recipe for some absolute comedy moments I think so I hope to god it happens.

Mourinho to Spurs will be like adding water to acid. Apart from Porto, where he made his name, he's only ever had an open spending policy to buy his immobile groks. Levy, meanwhile, is famously tight as a duck's arse. So who's going to prevail in that war, if it happens? One thing is almost certain - he won't get to the third year before it all goes to shit for them. It could be popcorn time quite soon.

Mourinho is an absolutely terrible fit for that club in pretty much every possible way.

It seems really unrealistic. He's basically briefing the press right now that he's interested but I'm not sure why. Maybe he knows something we don't about their budget and they can spend, but if not, him and Levy seem like the worst fit imaginable.

I think the Spurs squad is pretty well set up for Mourinho's style of play.  A target man and some pacy wide forwards, a couple of old centre backs, athletes in midfield (and the magisterial Harry Winks).  They are a way off us and Man City but should be up there with Chelsea and Leicester rather than languishing with Everton.

They do need a bit of an overhaul though and the Levy and funding issue would seem to be an embarrassing argument in the press waiting to happen.

You would have thought Spurs had someone lined up though, because the timing is rather weird.

They've actually been poor since the start of last season, and the CL run papered over the cracks. For a long time, it looked as though they could compete very well considering the didn't pay top wages, and you hardly ever heard of their players being linked to other clubs. That's all changed over the past 18 months and was very apparent over the summer. I think Pochettino has been pushing for the sack and a hefty pay-off rather than choosing to walk. That's the way it's done nowadays.

 

Only one man for the job.

We destroyed them didn't we. Just think back to that moment when they were singing "Oh .... when ..... the ..... Spurs..... go......" slowly at the absolute pinnacle of their existence as a football club and Salah slotted it right through their hearts. 

 

Form is very temporary, The Top Table is Reserved, For The Very Best.

Now fuck off back to no-ones arsed land with Everton and the rest.

Former Manchester United and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is in talks to replace Mauricio Pochettino as Tottenham manager.

Pochettino, 47, was sacked as Spurs boss on Tuesday after five years in charge of the north London club.

The Argentine led Spurs to the Champions League final last season, where they lost to Liverpool.

Portuguese Mourinho has been out of work since being sacked by United in December 2018.

No deal has yet been reached between Mourinho and Spurs.

The ex-Chelsea, Porto, Real Madrid and Inter Milan manager has turned down a number of job opportunities, including in China, Spain and Portugal, since leaving Old Trafford.

There have been reports of a falling out between Pochettino and chairman Daniel Levy, but the decision was taken purely because of the poor results over a number of months, starting last February.

Bournemouth's Eddie Howe, RB Leipzig's Julian Nagelsmann and free agent Massimiliano Allegri, who left Juventus at the end of last season, have all been linked with the job.

However, Mourinho is keen to take the helm at White Hart Lane, and if talks between the club and his representatives are successfully concluded, an announcement could be made as soon as Wednesday morning UK time.

Some officials at the club are increasing confident Mourinho could be unveiled at a press conference on Thursday if negotiations go well.

Agree that the squad fits him, but the overall club doesn't.

Can't see Leevy and Mourinho working long term. Unless Mourinho can convince Alderweireld, Vertonghen and Eriksen to sign new deals that a lot of money just to replace them

Years of under investment caught up with poch, only so much over achieving most managers can do.

    • What? What the fuck is this clown talking about in the Guardian comments section on Ronay’s Silva dissection? They love to give themselves more relevance than they have,  
       
    • It's great news that we have two players fit and raring to go. 
    • A bullish Xherdan Shaqiri has said that he is ready for more game time after his star showing against Everton in the Reds 5-2 victory on Wednesday evening.

      The Swiss star was a surprise selection in the starting lineup especially when you take into account that he had not started a league game since the end of January and his last start in all competitions came on that memorable night on the 7th of May against Barcelona.

      Before Wednesday night, Shaqiri played a grand total of 25 minutes in all competitions with his longest run-out coming in the Community Shield against Man City.

      A long running battle with a calf injury has been the main reason for his lack of regular first-team action during this campaign, but after scoring his first goal in nearly a year and displaying his sublime skill, Shaq has made it known to all concerned including his manager that he is well and truly back.

      The Echo reported the popular utility player as saying:

      “ I’m ready, I think the coach saw that too in training,"

      "I trained very well and today he gave me the chance and I think I played very well.

      “ At the end of the day it’s important to win games with my team, we won it as a team, and obviously when I can contribute it’s always good. 

      “Let’s hope for more games!"
        Shaqiri said despite the lack of minutes, rust was never a issue and he felt at home on the pitch.  

      “ You know me and how I play, so it’s nothing new!

      “I’m an instinctive footballer, so I like to play good football if I feel good. I felt good so I tried some things and it went well.

      “ I was very happy to score after a long time. It was a good feeling."

      While the injury was undoubtedly a frustrating time for the 28 year-old, he counted his blessings that it was not something more serious like a ligament injury.

      “ I’ve been injured [but] thank God I don’t have knee problems or something. I had some muscle problems so I just needed a few weeks to recover well.

      “The calf is very dangerous to get another injury and I had this so obviously it was not nice but I stayed positive and tried to come back. 

      “I worked very hard in the gym and with the fitness coaches to come back and be ready when the coach needs me. I’m feeling good."

      Shaqiri was a player that Jürgen Klopp turned to around this time last season and he certainly did not let his manager down turning in some special performances against Man United and Arsenal in particular.

      He is well aware of the jam packed fixture list during this month and says it is great to be option for his manager again.

      "Everybody knows that it’s a busy period now with a lot of games coming up, [so] I’m very happy to be back. I’m feeling fresh, feeling good, and I think you saw that.

      “We know each other very well, we train every day together, the team stays like last season even when the coach makes some changes - five changes, I think.

      “He changed the formation a little bit so it was not simple but we managed that very well today against a good side.

      . [It’s] a derby obviously so we wanted to keep the city red, so it was a very important win.
