Well I’m glad it’s all over. I’d agree about the football he had Wolves playing as well.

He’ll live and die by the squad movement though. If Levy truly has stepped back from footballing and transfer decisions then he might have a chance of getting players he actually wants and getting rid of some of the deadwood.

We’ve had success before when we’ve appointed managers who haven’t always been the first choice so hopefully we’ll do that again.

Interesting to see how many of the new signings are A) Portuguese and B) Jorge Mendes clients.

I have a feeling this Mendes fella may become a issue

I do recall being very happily wrong when thinking that the Argentinian from La Liga must have been third choice behind van Gaal and De Boer.

The song sounds great. But I think I shall take a solemn vow to always refer to him using his full name.

Perhaps Gregorian plainchant style: "Nuuuno Esssspiritooo Saaantos...."

OK, I'm happy, I am not going to prejudge Nuno. I did the last bloke, but I knew he was a cunt, he always had been and always would be. Nuno is the opposite in cuntishness to Mouronho, he's a decent bloke so that's good. Lets' see how he does working for the arch cunt of cunts and if that cunt takes a step back from the football decisions and lets the experts get on with it. Will Levy give him the time needed to rebuild the prolapsed tradesman's entrance of our team, buggered to fucking bits by JM, will he spend the money needed, will he get rid of the dross regardless of the financial hit he might have to take, will he let players go who don't want to stay because it has been proved time and time again that forcing unhappy players to stay makes them play like one legged little girls? I doubt it, but I will be hopeful.

He is, as of now... not a cunt...!
He would become an instant legend if he walked out for training on the first day wearing a t-shirt with "Not a Cunt" over the front 🤣

If you think this might be true....then I'm afraid I think you are deluded, weve had DoF before - they are Scapegoats for Levy's control freakery.

I wish this apparently good bloke and decent manager all the luck and success in the world during his time at Spurs, there is no alternative but to back him for the sake of our club. The only bloke I have never nor ever will is Mourinho. Sherwood is even on the 'backed' list.

Let's hope he can work with what he has (minus Kane & Bale I would imagine) plus a few reinforcements - I would pick Conor Coady from Wolves as a number 1 pick with Dunk from Brighton, both captain material as well. I expect to see counter attack style football from Nuno, but sorting our 'headless chicken' defence mentality is a priority.

Welcome and Good luck Nuno.

I'm pretty deluded at the best of times :)

Aside from probably Arnesen, the DoF's we've had have been a bit shit but I get a different vibe from this appointment, even with the spectre of Jorge Mendes circling around everyone.

In Paratici, you've got someone who spent over a decade at a bigger club establishing a pretty solid reputation. Is he really going to risk that, and all of the ball ache that comes with it, to go to a smaller club and be told what to do by a deranged pipsqueak ?

I guess, ultimately, time will tell, and I think Nuno's first couple of team selections will give us a pretty good indicator of who is really pulling the strings as well, but I just think this time .. maybe ?

Obviously we'll be here this time next season when Nuno has been sacked for knocking Levy out when he tried to tell him to pick Dier in goal .. or something like that :D

Well at least we know Gillette won't be sponsoring us while he's here anyway...

Think he'll be good for us tbh...Hopefully he'll bring a positive freshness to the squad, cos holy fuck we need it. Regardless of who comes and goes I really hope he is allowed to have the final say on transfers and be given the trust he needs to do his thing....

Welcome Nuno.
COYS!

We had that transfer 'genius' from Southampton for a couple of seasons before Levy sacked him and someone else that was supposed to be really good and he got the boot as well, because every time they recommended someone, if Levy didn't agree or they were too much money, they never stood a chance.

Word is that he’s only been allowed to bring half his coaching staff with him.

Sounds like dear leader demanded Mason and King be used in some capacity

Worried about this from a penny-pinching standpoint, guardedly optimistic from a five-year-plan, great leap forward standpoint.

Yeah I think having a plan of succession, of sorts, is a pretty good idea but this one seems to have come from Levy's fevered imagination.

It won't be based on any kind of talent or ability, it'll be based entirely on Levy thinking "Well they played for this club, the fans like them and it won't cost me as much to promote them when I sack second Jose".

I suspect the idea is for Mason to be the manager and Ledley to be his assistant, but I'd personally want it the other way around.

Oldest looking 47 year-old in history. At least Levy won't have him pulling his hair out.😏

Don't know if this is readable on The Athletic but it's a pretty good article about the situation and how the squad seem encouraged by Nuno's appointment.

Interestingly, it also says this ..

The players in general were barely consulted during the head coach search, and mostly knew as much or as little as the public. Harry Kane would normally have a dialogue with chairman Daniel Levy over this sort of issue, but he’s been busy at the Euros and relations between the two are pretty much broken at this point after Kane let it be known publicly that he wants to leave this summer.

There goes his gentleman's agreement then...he's stuck here for the duration.

I'm short $1 to read it, but I do hope most of the squad will get behind Nuno - it's a mental game and maybe Nuno can tap into something positive. But then I look at Dier, Sissoko, Sanchez, Doherty, Aurier, Winksy, Dele, Lamela and think he'd have to be the holy ghost incarnate.
