Harry Redknapp, September 2013: "For me, it's the best squad in the Premier League now. They've brought some outstanding players in and it's a real strong squad there now. It's amazing. The competition they have everywhere makes them so strong."

Harry Redknapp, May 2014: "The real culprits of Tottenham's failings last season are not Tim, Les Ferdinand and Chris Ramsey. It is whoever decided to spend or recommend spending £111million on a load of bang average players. There's only one outcome - Tim gets the elbow just a few months after taking on the job after Andre Villas-Boas was, no surprise, sacked."

Amazing how Redknapp's assessment of a squad changes from when the foe (Andre Villas-Boas) is in charge rather than the friend (Sherwood), isn't it?

That article makes no sense

1st paragraph:

Quote:
Tottenham Hotspur will make one final check to see whether Carlo Ancelotti is interested in becoming their new manager before making their move for Southampton’s Mauricio Pochettino next week.
So Ancelotti is first choice.

4th paragraph:

Quote:
Pochettino has been Tottenham’s first choice since the club decided not to take up the 12-month option on Tim Sherwood’s contract.
Pochettino is first choice. Make your mind up ffs.

There's a fine line between expectation and delusion. Levy is far back on the baseline of delusion its laughable.

He'd likely be a good appointment for them and I'm sure they'll be looking to raid Southampton if true.

Spurs is a much more appealing proposition. A world class manager in Pochettino, a proven forward thinking chairman in Levy, and of course an illustrious history of winning things. Llallana would jump at that.

Money talks and he knows the manager so it's not out of the realms of possibility however you'd still hope and expect if a straight choice between us and them then he'd join us.

Poor old Frank De Boer practically begs Spurs to hire him and still can't get employed. Oh well, he'll just have to win another Eredivisie title waiting for Levy to sack Pochettino.

Let's see how he copes with the difference in expectation

Hes gone from a relatively small club with mid table ambitions to a a club where the expectation from the fans & London Press will be totally ridiculous

A 5 year deal? and Tottenham's 10th manager since 2001............

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said: "He has a proven ability to develop each player as an individual, whilst building great team spirit and a winning mentality."
Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger said: "We will be looking for a manager that shares our values, our principles and our philosophy; a manager who can continue to grow the first team."

He'll be sacked by Christmas. Harry got them to 4th and Levy still sacked him. Why any manager would want to go there and made a scapegoat I'll never know?

My thoughts on Pochettino/Spurs coming up in a few tweets (sorry for hi-jacking timeline, I'll keep it brief!)

Excellent appointment in my opinion: ticks many boxes for Spurs. Proved himself capable of improving individual players = key for THFC (1/5)

As well as being more than happy to promote academy kids to the first team AND improving them at the same time (very impressive) (2/5)

"Gets" the culture of English football, yet at the same time possesses the cultural understanding of successfully dealing with... (3/5)

...players from a variety of footballing backgrounds (and cultures). This point not to be underestimated given the diverse Spurs squad (4/5)

Tactically clever, impressive on the training ground, reads/"feels" the game well, experience as a def helps rectify Spurs def problems(5/5)

Tor-Kristian Karlsen ‏@karlsentk
And after 5-6 months with Pochettino in charge, one can finally pass judgement on last summer's signings... (1/2)

And I think one will find that Lamela, Eriksen, Paulinho etc are capable of playing football after all... (2/2)

Payoff on a 5 year contract is always helpful if that happens!

It's quite enticing actually if you go in knowing you are going to be paid a 5 year contract for a one year job.

Easy money i suppose but their reputations take a massive knock. Spurs have unrealistic expectations of being a top club but actually winning nothing. The club needs a long term plan and Pochettino could be the one to do that but AVB was supposed to be a long term plan and look how that ended.

Pochettino is a quality manager but I think Levy will wield the axe before the project gets off the ground.

Rodger's first season at Liverpool was really hit and miss but he was given time but if he' have been the spurs manager he'd have been sacked within the first year.

Spurs seem to have a new project every 24 months and long may that continue.

Apparently Spurs have get outs if he doesn't make top 4. Delusional thinking at White Hart Lane. Small time club acting like they are a perennial top 4 club. Arsenal just have to a avoid a transfer window disaster and they'll still finish ahead of Spurs with or without more transfers.

Interesting from Tor-Kristian Karlsen. Although my impression was that a lot of the problem for the players he listed was attitude as much as ability.

Not to mention the fact that Eriksen did okay.

Their squad still looks shapeless (like ours did a couple of seasons ago) and I think it will be a significant challenge to get them organised and united in a single season. It'll be interesting to see how Pochettino does, at Saints it looked like a lot of that hard work had been done by his predecessor who was getting them to play well just before he was sacked (not saying Pochettino didn't improve them or do a good job).

a spurs mates of mine is gutted - he wanted de boer

i laughed and said it doesn't mate who you get - 6 months down the line, there will be a fallout with Levy and you'll be looking for another manager.

Now it's just going to be a summer full of southampton players being linked with spurs.


feel for southampton fans - best football they've had in years, one really decent season and the manager has gone and the squad looks like it'll be ripped apart.

sad in a way for football...as soon as a half decent sized club, peforms half decently, they get ripped up.

Pochettino could be a smart move a la Rodgers but he needs to be backed and given time which as we know isn't one of Levy's strong points & for all the money they've spent the squad to me still looks pretty short on players in certain areas i.e. CB and up top.

Whoever Spurs got in, the problem is not really the manager but the bloke who has given him the job. 10 managers in 13 years suggests that Levy is either extremely trigger happy or just shit at selecting managers. One poor year for Pochettino and he could be gone despite his potential.

Most Spurs fans I know wanted Levy gone before they chose their new manager. But I guess that'll never happen what with him banging Joe Lewis' daughter.
