The approving of names to be added is beyond a joke. Last year, betting on top scorer, couldn't get starting forwards added to the market. Then, with about 7 games to go, they added a couple who had a shot at winning it.

Here for next Spurs boss we have.....

Chris Kamara
George Graham - sacked by Spurs 20 years ago, never managed since, 76 years old.
David Pleat - Managed the club in the 1980s, then had almost a season as caretaker in premier league,  even that is 17 years ago
Franz Beckenbauer - not managed since 1996.
Tim Sherwood
Gazza

I dont know why Potter gets a kicking on here.  How do you know how he would proform at a higher level? it smacks of snobbishness, lack of imagination.  Have you seen his team play?  imagine how he would transform Le Celso(baller), Alli and Son.   He relies on a 4th rate irishman, a 3rd rate frenchman and the talented but fragile Welbeck to get goals.  A punt no doubt but I thought spurs had a rep for playing good football?  the english bias I guess

Just had a long chat with a pal of mine who is a big Saints fan.

He is not someone I would call a massive guesser, by the way.

Anyway, following conversations he has had with various friends on the South coast, they believe that Spurs will end up with Hasenhuttl as manager and Ings as Arry's replacement.

Now I agree that we have raided Southampton at various times in the past, but I really hope he is wrong on both counts.

Martinez is still my best worse option, as we stand today.

Now my backs have been way higher than lays since.

I tried to add him yesterday. How the fk did you get people added? I was on live chat and the guy said no problem he would pass on the request. Was hoping he would go in and I'd have backed him . Didn't have any info about it but was concerned that he was the most likely unlisted one to get it.

Truly incredible that they could add some of the comedy names and not have Fonseca. They actually had him in the Everton market.

There is nothing to this story imo. They have to be seen to be searching while they wait for PSG to find someone new and release Poch. PSG will accommodate Poch because he's a former player who is not working out and wants to leave and if they can get Zidane they will be better off than with Poch and it will work out better for everyone.

Think about Levy's position because that's what he will be thinking about. This guy does nothing to deflect pressure from fans away from him. It will only make it worse for him. Levy is no idiot and this guy makes no sense for anyone.
