#PochIn #PochOut #ShakeItAllAbout

Do I want Pochettino sacked? No. I do not. My Twitter account has said “Pochettino Out” since the day he was appointed. It was a bit of a joke. But that joke is not funny anymore. Some real accounts are popping up suggesting that the guy be sacked, and they are proving divisive. True to […]

Is there some method, somewhere, to Levy’s madness?

Unless Daniel Levy is cackling away like a madman in his 100% leather-bound office, while putting the finishing touches to Frank de Boer’s managerial contract, it seems obvious that Southampton’s Mauricio Pochettino is about to leave the family-friendly south coast for a turbulent sixteen months in charge of Tottenham. I think it’s fair to say […]

The Tim Sherwood Story

“Are we there yet? Are we there yet?” crowed Tim Sherwood – for days on end – in to the ear of chairman Daniel Levy, swapping the phrase “are we there yet” for “can I have the job”. Like any overworked parent, Daniel finally acquiesced, giving Tim the keys to the kingdom, keys he previously […]

AVB: Three strikes and out?

A lot of faith has been put in Andre Villas-Boas.  Perhaps a little unfortunate to miss out on the Champions League gravy train in May, this season he was given a squad that is probably title-challenging quality but has the lower expectations of finishing in the top four. Twelve games in to the season, it […]

Transitional season ahead as Levy padlocks the purse

Maybe the HP Touchpad fire sale taught Daniel Levy something in the last week: if you have stuff that no one wants then you have to practically give it away.  If Alan Hutton is the 16 gigabyte version (only available in white) – demanding a mere 3 million pounds for his poor application ecosystem – then […]

Hey Luka, let’s take a walk

Hey Luka, let’s take a walk Bit embarrassing for Spurs to see the phrase ‘Levy threatened me’ in the headlines today.  Luka Modric insists that not only has Spurs chairman Daniel Levy reneged on an agreement to consider any bid from a “bigger club”, but he also “threatened” to leave Modric in the stands or […]

Tottenham may be out of Luk-a.

I’m a little surprised that Luka Modric has felt compelled to try and worm his way out of Tottenham.  All evidence suggests that he’s a decent little chap, not hugely motivated by money in a Carlos Tevez-type way and, at a still-relatively young age, has plenty of time to make his mark in world football. […]

Regarding Harry

The backlash against Spurs is increasing amongst the minions.  That’s nothing I didn’t expect.  The charges that they spent their way in to the position they are in so “fourth place is the least they should expect” is a bit like the charge I made when Spurs would routinely lose to top four sides over […]

‘Arry Bloody Redknapp!?

Oh dear. There’s no doubt that Tottenham were a sinking ship under Junande Ramos, a man afflicted by an inability to motivate, organise or coach players effectively.  How he could go from being one of the top managers in Europe with consecutive European trophies to one floundering at the bottom of the Premiership and losing […]
