The circus continues; now not Fonseca, but Gattuso (?)

The circus continues; now not Fonseca, but Gattuso (?)

According to the latest reports, we – as a club – have encountered financial issues in our deal to complete the appointment of Paulo Fonseca as our new manager, this is according to the well respected Italian reporter Gianluca Di Marzio. But not just him that has been saying this, Sky Sport Italia are reporting that Tottenham has now begun talks with Gennaro Gattuso as a possible alternative candidate. I am gobsmacked. It is becoming a joke, a laughing stock. “Spursy” is not just a word that can be used for the playing field, but the Tottenham Board as well.

It is like skittles; every time we put some names up, they are quickly knocked down (by Levy). I often hear fans shout, “get behind the board”. Get behind what? Incompetence? They don’t seem to know their Uranus from the mouth of the equator. A total shambles.

So, who is this new name that has been thrown in the mix?  Gattuso left Fiorentina just 23 days after joining as manager (which is a good start), with the decision said to be down to a disagreement over transfer strategies (The Athletic). Oh, he will love Levy then. They will get on like Jekyll and Hyde (remember that well known double act that works in the corner of Levy’s mind!).

As a player, he played for Perugia, Rangers, Salemitana, Milan and Sion. The teams he managed were Sion, Palermo, OFI Crete, Pisa, Milan Primavera, Milan, Napoli and finally Fiorentina… or should that be, finally Spurs? All well-known names (?), experience from those clubs should complement Spurs. Bring on the Championship… I feel a trophy coming up in season 2022/23 (unless we fail that, and it is the playoffs?).

Fonseca, after lengthy talks, was projected to be confirmed as our new manager this week on a three-year deal after talks progressed well last weekend (Guardian).

My thoughts

It all started with rumours that it would be the Brighton manager, Leicester manager, then the Ajax manager, then we moved on the Uncle Tom Cobley and all his mates. Next, we moved backwards to Mauricio Pocettino, which failed, then a Chelski name, Antonio Conte, but Levy didn’t want to be considered a challenging manager for the top four, or at least in the same league as Chelski, United or City… or even a Liverpool (title challengers). So, back to the drawing board and the Twilight zone.

Our managerial search has been nothing short of a PR catastrophe and has the club looking foolish in the eyes of our fans and the footballing world. What a joke! This has been going on for months, and looks like it will continue for a bit longer.

Beam me up, Scotty; I want to return to the real universe of football and not what was created in Levy’s mind.

Be safe,

All the best, Glenn
