Well hopefully they'll struggle to find a manager with a spine now.. as surely any manager worth their salt should want nothing to do with this ridiculous situation?

Been coming for a few weeks. When he's getting bored, he starts publicly blaming players and that's been happening for a while.

Textbook modern bonkers football tactic sponsored by the European Super League to sack a manager just days before a cup final.

I wonder if JM objected to the ESP and Tottenham decided to sack him now rather than wait 7 days and allow him to lose the EFL Cup Final before his departure?

I have a theory about managers like Wenger & Mourinho I’ve often bored by dad (GranthamMariner) with.

When Wenger came over in 1996 he was 10 years ahead of his time.

When Mourinho came over in 2004 he was 10 years ahead of his time.

Neither changed or developed. Wenger’s last big Arsenal success was the UCL Final in 2006. Mourinho’s last big success was winning the EPL in 2015. They both became dinosaurs after that.

Sir Alex Ferguson reinvented himself over and over again to keep delivering success. Wenger & Mourinho weren’t able to do that.

Your theory omits that later era Wenger was significantly financially hindered by the new ground, and the arrival of Chelsea and Man City in particular splashing the cash.

Chelsea’s finances (and then Man City too) didn’t stop Ferguson delivering PL titles in 06/07, 07/08, 08/09, 10/11 & 12/13.

Ferguson was clever in that he didn’t necessarily have to reinvent himself. He brought in the right coaches such as McClaren (who was a very good coach) and the Doigian, Carlos Queiroz (who was a tactical genius).

Sorry but wrong. Fergie played 4-4-2 until around 2003. His latter success was done with variations of 4-3-3. He changed his style and method as football changed. It wasn’t just down to having a different assistant.

I've often said the same thing about managers Golly. They seem to have a certain shelf life after which they never reach the heights of their beginnings.

Fergy was an exception which makes him stand out head and shoulders above the rest.

PS I hope that this doesn't apply to Hurst just yet at least!!!

92 Mill he's received in compensation for being sacked.  Ridiculous that you get paid for failure.

Levy needs to get on the blower to Ollie asap.

United had the cash to compete with the Chelsea & City billionaire owners. Arsenal didn't due to their 'self sustaining' model. In the final years of Wenger's reign the club did start to spend more (due to new commercial deals) but with very mixed results. Hence, you see were the club are now. Wenger seems to get the blame for the current state of the club in the media but it was him who warned against overspending and the same media that ridiculed him for it.

You might be right. I can’t remember the exact timelines.
😀

Ferguson transitioned from his beloved 442 when Queiroz was apponted as coach in 2002. Ferguson overruled Queiroz and went for broke against Real Madrid in the 4-3 ‘Brazilian Ronaldo hat-trick match’, with Solskjær and RVN up front in a 442.

Queiroz took the Real job, got sacked, Ferguson took him back and United became a pragmatic monster using the 433 variants you mention.

How can it be classed as a ‘super league’ when only 3 countries have teams represented.

What they should do is get every European country to enter their league champions and have a midweek competition. Maybe add 2/3/4 placed teams in the more developed leagues and call this competition, wait for it, ‘the champions league’


In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.

He is paid up to £20million in compensation for failing. This is an obscene amount of money paid to him by one of the new super league clubs.

It is disgusting that this sort of money is handed over when he achieved nothing. Overpaid, overrated, and a has been. Why do these clubs bring in foreign managers and not use British talent? These clubs are where they are now because it is British managers that took them by the scruff of the neck and put them onto the road to wealth.

These old British managers were paid nowhere near the likes of Mourinho and stayed with the clubs for years not months. I think Bill Nicholson would turn in his grave the way Spurs are in this present age.

It’s been clear for a while now, probably since the inception of the premier league that winning actual trophies doesn’t necessarily mean success.

Look how teams have celebrated by finishing 4th or just staying up. Jose has actually achieved things at Spurs and a win ratio plenty would die for.

No coincidence that the last two clubs he ‘failed’ at both have CEOs/owners that think they’re the big shot, that they can buy and sell and know what’s best. Spurs will spend more money getting rid of Jose than if they’d just given him the cash to buy the centre half he so desperately wanted and needed.

I suspect Jose will be made the scapegoat for Levy’s arrogance once more, the fact Levy/Spurs believe they’re part of the big six is laughable and gives you a view of how Levy views the club. One league cup and one non appearance in a champions league final...

People can talk about the sum of money for getting sacked being grossly inflated but football is to blame, they created that and if that’s his contract then so be it. You can see some truth in the story that he refused to train and whatever people’s opinions are of Jose, he is still one of the most successful managers in the game. He also improved Spurs’ best two players...I’m sure Levy will take the credit for that too.

I like PH but when Jose is brought in by Stockwood and Pettit I won’t be disappointed...

Apparently it's all OK. Real Madrid's chairman said it will "help football at all levels."

"Football is the only global sport in the world with more than four billion fans and our responsibility as big clubs is to respond to their desires,"


Through the door there came familiar laughter,

Feel a bit bad for him loosing his job as I didn't mind him when I saw him on Amazon prime when he done that show on spurs. Having said that I didnt like some of his actions in the past when he use to manage Real Madrid eg pocking one of Barcelona's staff in the eye .


Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it's much more serious than that.
