Jose out

Every Monday morning for months now I've awakened and checked the news to see if the day of jubilee had arrived. It's the first thing I do, even before my coffee. Now that it's here, it's in the midst of this Super League wankery, and I can't even be happy about it. I know others feel the same way, and the more that I think about it, it's Spursy as fuck.
It's like beating Man City to qualify for CL and then watching Chelsea beat Bayern Munich.

.... yeah but, he didn't do it did he? It's all just bollocks rumours.
Yeah, I suppose the truth-value here is akin to something along the lines of "I didn't tell the players to retreat and defend the lead at 1-0" or "Aldeweireld did not return from international duty in time"

So Levy was fine with the shit football, losing mentality, backstabbing players, mopey pressers, players wanting out, but Jose says mean words about super league and Levy's had enough? I have that about right? LEVY YOU CUNT!

But thank God Jose is gone. Maybe King Ledley manages us to League Cup glory the same day Levy is canned? Dreams.

While I have no issue with Ryan Mason, I do wonder why the King wasn't chosen to lead the team until the end of the season ?. I can only guess he might not have all the required badges maybe.

Maybe this gives a lifeline to Dele.

If something good comes of this, may that be it.

Am I the only one who doesn't believe all the shite posted on the Internet? Someone said that Mourinho did a thing so it must be true. I thought here were some sensible grown-ups here. There are no credible reports saying he was sacked because of the Money Pit league, just because you want to believe something doesn't mean it's real.

Alisdair Gold - has said the Super league had nothing to do with it. I think it was pure excitement and happiness that he has gone that anyone was prepared to believe any reason. Rather like Barry Davies famous quote - who cares?

Fucking life is a cunt innit? We should be dancing in the street celebrating the sacking of Mourinho, but that cunt Levy makes sure we can't be happy even for a few minutes with his Super League announcement. It's like being told that you've won the lottery but have to share the jackpot with a million other players so you get two quid.

I think we all came around pretty quickly on this. During the first rash of reports as we were all fondling ourselves excitedly, a few tried to manage a grimace while qualifying it all with an "If true..."

It was plausible at the time. No cunt could have been any more sure it was false than he could have that it was true.

Yeah, to be honest, I simply made up the Kane thing on the first page... just thought it sounded about right and went with it...!!

Every other cunt invents news that suits their agenda, not that I have enough fucks to have developed any kind of agenda....

I was just being a bit of a cunt really... see if anyone would bite...!

Interesting piece in the Athletic


Mourinho: The Inside Story

"It was half-time at the Etihad Stadium on February 13. Tottenham were 1-0 down to Manchester City but had barely been in the game at all. No shots on target, no corners, 35.9 per cent possession.

Jose Mourinho walked in and was unusually positive, telling the players they were doing well and to keep it up. Some of the senior players in the dressing room were shocked that such a passive, negative approach could be right for this club. “You really think this is good?" remarked one. Tottenham did nothing in the second half and lost the game 3-0.

As the reality of Mourinho’s methods became apparent, it did not take long for the Tottenham players to pine for the days of Pochettino. The players found themselves relying on the same attacking moves he had taught them, long after he’d left the club.

Under the Argentinean, the team had a clear philosophy of play which they would work on perfecting every day. Under Mourinho, that went out of the window. His approach was to tailor different tactics to every single opponent, designed to exploit their own distinct weaknesses. Players remarked that as they got closer to every match, the atmosphere was increasingly marked by fear of what might go wrong. Spurs were so fixated on what the opposition might do, they forgot to focus on their own game.

It did not take the Tottenham players to grow bored of Mourinho’s training sessions. They felt weighed down by the defensive focus, the hours spent working on how to defend throw-ins before facing Liverpool, and frustrated by the lack of attention to their own game. For years, Spurs teams of all levels had focused on building up from the back and passing the ball, but for Mourinho that was all forgotten.

“He has sucked the culture out of the club," said one dressing-room source, “and destroyed what Spurs have stood for for years."

The players were also struck by the lack of intensity in their training programme. Working under Pochettino was extremely hard, and the players would complain about the number of double sessions, and the lack of days off, as Pochettino and his staff got the team fit enough to play his aggressive, pressing football. But that same group of players then felt the opposite was true under Mourinho — that they were not being worked hard enough. They felt as if almost every session was either recovery from one match or tactical preparation for the next one, which made it especially difficult for the players who were not in the team to find any rhythm.

When they got what they felt was a harder week of training before the FA Cup visit to Wycombe Wanderers in January, the players were even relieved to have been worked hard. They would even joke among themselves that training at this intensity could prolong their careers.

Sacramento was meant to provide an update to Mourinho’s methods and a link to the players at Spurs. But in reality, he proved just as unpopular as Mourinho. Multiple sources report that the players struggled to connect with him, saying he lacked the emotional intelligence to deal with a squad of established Premier League stars. Rival coaches also picked up on Sacramento’s lack of experience, especially in comparison to Faria, with one even remarking to The Athletic how little authority he seemed to have on the touchline, barking tactical instructions to uninterested players.

The players felt, as the season wore on, that whatever went wrong they would be blamed for it, and that Mourinho was happy to throw them under the bus. Ahead of the line-up being announced for the game against Manchester United recently, one club source remarked, “I wonder which lambs will be sent out to slaughter this week."

“Four or five players absolutely hate him, four or five like him, four or five just aren’t arsed," said another club source earlier this month. “He just splits the camp, because of what he says and how he says it."

Tottenham knew how much damage Mourinho was doing through his comments. Staff had been left embarrassed by how he would talk to the squad. Players such as Doherty had found their confidence shattered by the way the manager would criticise them. And while the club had told Mourinho to stop hammering the players after games, it did not always make a difference.

By this point, Mourinho had few allies left at Tottenham. Not only had he fallen out with the players but, according to multiple sources, many colleagues had been put off by his negative mood and demeanour. More than one source drew a contrast between the approach of Pochettino, who tried to create an inclusive environment and Mourinho, who essentially retreated into his bunker in the final months.

As results turned against him, Mourinho found almost no one was left on his side. “You always know what you’re going to get with Mourinho," said one former colleague. “But it is still very unpleasant when you do get it."

Maybe we could refer to him as "the void" from now on.....?

A space, a gap, a cunt that is no more.

Castles said on the podcast: “My information is that the first of those approaches came from Celtic Football Club who are in need of significant managerial change.

“They are in need of a change of fortune to get themselves back on top of the heap in Scotland after Steven Gerrard guided Rangers to the Scottish title by a significant margin.

“My understanding is that his (Mourinho's) response to that approach from Celtic is that he is not ready to coach now. There have been other offers," the journalist concluded.

Castles apparently said on his latest podcast that his contractual situation means that if he takes another job soon, and his salary is less than what he earnt with us, we're contractually obliged to make up the difference and top up that salary so it equals what we were paying him for one year after sacking him.

So really elite-level negotiating from Levy there.

There's a secretly recorded voice clip going round with Jamie Redknap saying he was sacked when he was, because winning a cup and finishing in the top 4 would have massively increased his severance package. He fo onto call the club fudking clowns or some shot like that.

Yes but you've forgotten that Levy was praying at the Mourinho altar at the time, as Mourinho = a guarantee of success, by which I mean failing catestrophically in the Europa League, the Premier league and The FA cup.....

Levy has such a sharp football brain, we're lucky to have him. he went three transfer windows without signing a player because as we can all see we didn't need anyone. Sacked the most progressive manager we've had in ages who had a fantastic relationship with the fans and delivered the most expensive fans ticket prices in Europe.

Just fucking leave Levy, the buck stops with you, you schmuck

Roma have signed the Finished One, but, his type of football will probably work better in Serie A - who cares?
