New Manager In 48hrs

Image for New Manager In 48hrs

Good morning.

I am reliably informed from UK based source that Andres Villas Boas is to be unveiled on Monday. And Jan Vertonghen by Wednesday.  If it doesn’t happen, then I must remind passengers that refunds can only be issued upon production of a valid receipt. 

As per yesterday’s piece the Italian press cited were pretty ‘robust’ in their claim, not suggesting rather reporting that the deal for the ex Chelsea boss was a done deal.

What I find ‘amusing’ for want of better word …is that’s the disgruntled pro Arry mob who are talking in such unforgiving terms about Villas Boas before he’s even installed. The irony.  

All I want from any new manager is for the team, its coaching and its tactics to be the focus. Not the ‘personality’ in charge. THFC are on the cusp of something here and I don’t mean the usual ‘fingers crossed’ business. I mean the NPD and the endless thorny issue of it’s funding. 

My contempt for Arry was mistaken by some as a personal hate campaign, again ironically by people who speak about him as if he were a relative. My issue was always with the damage being done to THFC. Was I alone in this? If I was I did some job convincing Levy & Co to sack him. Derren Brown you’re toast, son.

Imagine WHL with one of those church funds signs stuck on the outside it. You know, one of those big arrow things showing how close the money raised to the target is. 

Right, now whatever figure you think we’re at… minus £30m. Because that’s why knuckle head was fired. 

You can harp on about finishing fourth as long as you like. Nobody with half a brain cares. This is serious now and the pretty sexy resources we have need managing. 

If the next man in does his best and doesn’t do anything glaringly stupid he’ll have my support. I think that’s reasonable, no?

I expect some common sense, some enterprise and some consistency. I don’t expect to see him looking brain damaged, chimping out of a car window waving a mobile phone like a banana.

I don’t expect him to make me cringe everytime he opens his mouth, I don’t expect him to tell me that a tournament that has probably surpassed the World Cup for many football fans is ‘overrated.’

    as long as he conducts himself with a little bit of class and dignity, can tactically change a game, have a plan b and develop the youth – we will be fine.

    I believe that was levy criteria and i cant think of one other manager available that ticks all those boxes

    well done levy

  • CyprusYid says:

    Its all about when Levy comes back to the UK! Then, the announcement of the new Coach will be made! Welcome to WHL Mr. AVB!

  • Spurs in Qatar says:

    Just say I am very sorry and get Martin back

  • Peter4Spurs says:

    I would like Kim Kardashian as our next manager, because even if we are loosing then at least we would have something HOT to look at and take our minds off the game …. hey just think, 35000 people all playing with their own balls rather than the ball on the pitch!!! (even Modric would stay just to share the bath after the game) … LOL!!! :)

    • Alicat says:

      Is that to say that Modric has been having to share a bath with Arry up to this point!!! No wonder he wants out so badly. Oh god damn the image that conjures…creeping flesh is a horror movie!

    • Sandra Redknapp says:

      Does that include the women in the stands? I’ve still not found my balls.

  • ricewireless says:

    Genuinely worried its obvious the crouching coach hidden tiger is coming to the lane but there are some hideous stories around his thought processes at the chelscum. I hope there wrong & as previously documented he was given a script but not the chance. I loved arry for a while & supported when others mocked but the 5-2 against the arse was the turning point. That after the January window looked like it had been put in during the riots. The talent left out there isn’t much Moyes? Martinez? please let it work….happy fathers day to one & all my new slippers are smashing

    • Whitehart lad says:

      I’m sorry but you can’t listen to Chavski fans, short sighted comes to mind on their behalf, of course they didn’t like him they don’t want to believe that the problem actually lies within the team he was trying to replace with younger players!!!! Why pay a £13m buy out and only give him 6-9 months!!!!!! They want over night success completely the wrong way to approach installing a new manager.

      • Merlin says:

        When Brendan Rodgers was asked whether he was interested in the Chelsea job after the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas, he confirmed that he wasn’t, adding: ‘I am trying to build my career and not destroy it’.
