    You would have seen the Gutter press jump all over that and fans voting with their feet and not going to watch spurs. It would have sent a jaw dropping message to the players and their expectations for the season also.

    what @Bishop said. Conte was available but we wanted to do business on a shoestring. this is Levy all day every day.

    Have said this multiple times. If you want to act like a big club, with a big stadium attracting concerts and other sporting events, with the highest ticket prices in the league, you can't then behave like a bottom half PL team when it comes to spending and splashing. You can't have it both ways.

    Funny it takes for the 'Levy Out' chants to ring around for him to realise it.

    If you think that negotiations weren't going on before the Utd game and it was only the few Levy out chants that changed things you are very naive.

    If you think Levy out chants didn't add to the haste then you are naive. At the end of the day you don't know brick, as any of us do.

    The club operate the way we do and the rest of it is pure speculation and opinion.

    You don't agree everything in 24 hours and have a new manager in place unless all the groundwork has been done.

    We would have known what his demands were during the summer. I wouldnt be surprised, not that I know, that patarici stormed out of the man United game and made the call.

    Looks more and more that Nuno was a more interim than anyone imagined. Whether Levy got played by Paratici and Conte or Conte played both of them we'll never know.

    The conspiracy theorist in my would like to think this was all part of or DOF's plan.

    The Athletic are not always right. But yes I agree it is a possibility for sure.

    The stress on Daniel's heart during today's match will have shortened his life a bit

    I'm sure he had hair when he first turned up at spurs.

    Or that someone as smart as Levy gives even a fraction of a fudge what a few halfwits on the terraces think.

    I think the truth is in the middle of the muddle of it all.

    I can’t understand why Nuno didn’t play 3 at the back, because the squad looks instantly deep and well suited to it. Not to say we can’t improve, but it looks like what it has been built for.

    I think Nuno was an appointment because as other people have said, we needed a manager to start the season. I don’t think fans, media, players would have accepted losing Jose before a cup final and not having a manager when pre season started, no matter how understandable it was that certain candidates we wanted couldn’t come. So we had to do something. It was a swing with Nuno and a swing for him, why not see if we can get a credible 5th with our squad and enhance his reputation with better players after Wolves rather than go to Palace? But when it wasn’t working, strike for Conte. The squad just seems made for him. I’m not surprised we decided that we made the move. Nuno needed results that were 7.5 out of 10 at least to keep the job, given the circumstances in which he got it. He didn’t do a bad job, but he needed to be doing very obviously and unarguably a good one on a results basis. That he wasn’t did for him, but that was the bargain he made.

    Levy's confession...

    "Since opening the stadium in April 2019, we've spent almost 400 million pounds on players. Player spending is no guarantee of success, and our focus must be on improved recruitment, coaching, fitness and a competitive mindset," Levy said.

    https://www.channelnewsasia.com/spo...ust-recruit-better-says-chairman-levy-2333321

    Stops short of accepting blame for his and Hitchen's work, the three transfer window embargo, Nuno who is not attack minded and the inability to offload deadwood players.


    That said, imagine if Man U got Paratici and Conte.... The only way is up now, I suppose.
