Daniel Levy is in love
By Don Scully
A Pundit says Scott Parker would love the Tottenham job, and Levy adores him. Love over a stale biscuit and a cup of tea… or maybe something more substantial.
I can just imagine that they are sitting opposite each other with a twinkle in both sets of eyes, and suddenly they go misty over each other and hands start to extend to the other… true love.
Scott Parker has suffered relegation both times he has managed Fulham in the Premier League, but Marcus Bent has told Football FanCast, that Parker would love to be offered the Tottenham Hotspur job. Then I would say, join the queue of failures.
As we all know, Daniel Levy is still on the hunt for a patsy, sorry, the next manager and the likes of Parker and Graham Potter have been linked with the job. Even though both have never finished in the top half of the Premier League as manager, which I would have thought would be ideal for Levy. Less money to pay in wages and probably easy to manipulate.
Levy is supposed to have said that he “thinks the world” of failure, sorry, Parker. However, he needs to get this next manager right, and Bent has claimed the Parker would love the job but that he may not be ready for it. You think! I thought that that partnership would be ideal; two failures together.
Marcus Bent says, “I’m not sure if Scott Parker is ready for it, but who am I to say? He’s done really well at Fulham, and I think he’d jump at the chance. I haven’t spoken to him about it, but I think he would jump at the chance. There’s something going on at the club, and it has been for years because it’s not stable. There’s going to be quite a few players going this summer, and they’re talking about if Kane will stay? It just depends on if they’re going to bring in the right players and manager.”
We do know that Levy loves inexperienced managers, just think of Sherwood, Mason, Pochettino, and now Parker, we also know that Levy hasn’t got a clue in and how to pick the right manager to manage his teams. Which will probably make Mason or Parker the ideal person for the job.
The bigger question is, how many times can fans be placated with failure after failure and no trophies? Well, apart from one and that manager quickly got sacked.
Maybe the problem is a lot closer to home, and Levy could find that failure by looking in his own mirror…, but then again, he probably has tried that, by putting the likes of Pochettino and Mourinho in front of his mirror while he stands on the side, and points… failure, out you go!
