Daniel Levy: Finally We See A Pattern...

After wild swings hither and thither, it looks very much like Daniel Levy has settled on a 'type'. Ignore Tim Sherwood, Mauricio Pochettino is the successor to AVB...

gizmooo - I think it's a fair assumption that Sherwood was intended as a stop gap, he was the best qualified from within the club and was appointed as caretaker. The only reason there was a contract was because he (quite rightly) insisted upon it. Probably knowing that it would be the end of his employment at Spurs in any form at the end of the season and he would at least get some kind of severance pay.

The original fee was £8m slocey, the rest was made up with add-on clauses including scoring a wonder-lob against against the gooners, and dumping a large bucket of icy water over Harry trying to tell his media mates how he personally won the match....in his pants (not Harry). Those 3 moments make it great value for money in my eyes.

Ramos, AVB, Pochettino, you know who he's been trying to find all this time? The next Arsene Wenger. The funniest part is that he tries to like the gourmet choices, but always keeps coming back to home cooking. Lately, he's been trying to mix the two: foreign, but with PL experience. After Poch, he will give up and hire Pulis.

So let's get this straight. Tim Sherwood doesn't count, as it was only an interim solution? The same Tim Sherwood who was given a contract to the end of 2014/15? In that case, should AVB not count as he wasn't there very long (must have been an interim). Same with Santini. It would appear that anyone who becomes Spurs manager under Levy is merely an interim

I also love this "direction" rubbish. Clubs tend to go for the best manager they can get at any given time. No club decides they just want "English" managers, or "defensive" managers, or "shouty" managers or "continental" managers. West Ham went from Zola to Allardyce, West Brom went from Steve Clarke to Pepe Mel, Everton went from Moyes to Martinez, you go for the best manager available at the time.

If kicking a ball into a skip from a balcony isn't worth a £17m fee then I don't know what is

Graham and be ignored really, new owners new direction. Santini walked out after a couple of months, Jol was reported to have been having cheeky meetings with Ajax and then Newcastle with his satisfaction at getting 5th (despite the outlay) and the one win in ten with some utterly baffling team selections (all of this is generally ignored by Jol-ists). Ramos was a good idea, he won a cup, turned things around but then imploding quite amazingly and to be honest I don't think anyone saw that coming. Redknapp was the emergency season saver who did very well, but blew third twice including making big eyes at the FA. AVB was a decent idea, worked well then again imploded, just not quite Ramosesque. And I'm still convinced he actually quit. Sherwood was an interim with no viable alternative. So only Jol, Ramos and Redknapp have been fired, the first making all the wrong noises and having an awful start to the season, the second imploding and the third taking his eyes off the ball big time. Not really headline grabbing is it.

Of course, if you don't take out Tim Sherwood, it does just look like he hasn't got a clue and lurches from one extreme to the other. When Spurs are 7th at Christmas and Poch gets the boot, I reckon it will be Frank Lampard coming in as player-manager for the rest of the season. Lampard will be replaced for the start of the following season by a 12 year old Spaniard.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
