Re: English Football 2020-21 - now with 100% additional Yorkshire

I will never support Gattuso. He is a PoS that should not be let anywhere near the club.

The way things are spiraling out of control we will probably be winding up the club by the start of the season.

Re: English Football 2020-21 - now with 100% additional Yorkshire

Gattuso is an outspoken sexist and a racist. He was a great little shithouser of a player, but he comes across as a garbage human, and it's not like his managerial record is exactly stellar.

I just don't see how this is smart if we actually want to try to challenge for anything and keep our better players. Perhaps we don't.

This is the first time I’ve ever heard Gatusso being accused of sexism/racism…

He's made problematic comments on more than one occasion.

I didn't think Spurs could make such a bad appointment. He has all the worst traits of Mourinho without any of the positives.

Absolutely amazing the Spurs. How pathetic is son resigning?? He could go anywhere. Levy is a huge turd.

Re: English Football 2020-21 - now with 100% additional Yorkshire

IDk what's wrong with Eddie Howe for Spurs. He's available, has a track record developing young players, plays good football, would be cheap and is fairly low risk - if it doesn't work out, he will not likely leave a smouldering wreck.

Gattuso would obviously be a terrible hire - if they went for him, I'd almost be surprised if he lasted the summer.

I think Spurs are dodging a bullet, but if you're already on your 4th choice in mid June...that's bad? I love to lol at Spurs, but a club of that size should *never* be on their fourth choice for a new manager. That is a huge organizational failure.

Re: English Football 2020-21 - now with 100% additional Yorkshire

To be fair, it was Spurs who pulled the plug on Conte, Fonseca and Gattuso. Plus Poche would have come if PSG had been open to letting him go.

My first pick would probably be Potter, but he has a 5 year contract so that's not an easy deal to do and comes with few guarantees.

I don't disagree this should have been handled better, but the reality is there were very few candidates who fit the job description at the start of the process, and that remains the case.

It's not an easy deal to do *cheaply*, chuck BHA the right $$$ and it becomes rather straight forward

Re: English Football 2020-21 - now with 100% additional Yorkshire

Okay, so we pay Brighton 10m and hand him a 15m contract. He has a so-so season and Poche becomes available...

I think this is why we are looking to do a fairly cheap deal - we want the option of cutting bait when Poche (or someone else who is an excellent fit rather than just an ok fit) becomes available.

If you want to play the LevyGOAT waiting game and not go out and get a good manager right now then hope someone else becomes available then just give it Mason until the end of the season

True, but then we can probably get an actual manager like Howe *relatively* cheaply.

Mason did okay, but also made some really bad decisions (e.g., Winks>Ndombele in the LC final).

Gattuso would've been a mental appointment. Loved him when he played for us but he's never struck me as managerial material, despite the jobs he's had.

For years now Tim Sherwood has been waiting. Learning. Growing stronger.

Your move, Mr. Levy.

Surprised so many people shy away to call Gattuso the absolute GOAT appointment.

The pressers alone would have been worth it.

I think Levy lost the plot for not hiring managers such as Potter / Howe as he seemingly just chases exotic options instead.

Why is that to be fair? They were the ones who opened up negotiations with all of them.
