    Yes indeed external circumstances may dictate Levy's hand as I'm sure Mourinho's availability had an impact of Poch departure. For example if Klopp was to leave imminently it will have ramifications for any club considering a new manager.

    Red Bull are second in the league, JN isn’t going till the summer at the earliest.

    I don't know, Bayern had a horrible start to the season and have already caught up, in a month or two they could be well out of sight as expected.

    JN might bring some decent knowledge of players in German league as a bonus

    Sort of understandable why players like Moura play.

    Think they play each other soon?

    you might be right, but I still doubt he would leave mid season, he will want to finish the season just in case

    Isn’t there rumours of ZZ going at Madrid as well?

    he would be stupid to jump.

    We would have to throw a lot of money at him and red bull

    It doesn't matter who we bring in if Levy is going to be involved in all aspects of football transfers or hires a yes man as a DoF.

    We need someone to be somewhat autonomous in the market to support the manager not disable him.

    First time?

    People complain about Spurs at times, but Atletico and Madrid are often absolute dross to watch.

    What would worry me lost if if players are happy being vocal off the pitch in private but havent got the balls to be vocal on it... the lack of on pitch talking and leadership in our team is staggering currently

    Not just ours, very few leaders around anymore. It is why I'm so interested in Knight at Derby, he has a touch of the Roy Keane about him.

    First time, this season, yes
    Used to enjoy their tenacity and organisational prowess. They just looked poor last night.

    This part of that piece is a bit worrying:
    “I think for a long, long, long, long time that we have problems in the team that I cannot resolve”. The Portuguese wanted more of the season's recruitment budget to be allocated to a central defender.

    It suggests that (yet again) those that make transfers at the club are not fulfilling the manager's wishes.

    If true though then at least it does show that Jose was fully aware before the season that our central defensive options were a complete shambles.

    at the time he was quite OTT with his praise of the backing he had in the summer iirc (and the quality of the squad in general) iirc "he couldn't be happier"

    What do you want him to come out with? I wanted Skirinar and Diaz but got in Rodon instead and he is not what i wanted? Surely even with blinkers on can see what he wanted and what he got. If you want to go back he was actually happy that we signed Reguilon and Doherty when he made those comments and were in for the above two mentioned.

    What i want is him to get on with doing his job, finding a solution to the current mess we're in rather than pointing the finger at everyone else.


    Regarding what gets said surely you can see, even with blinkers on, that when you are so enthusiastic about backing and the level of quality you have at the outset that to then complain about such things when it goes wrong is just after timing?

    There was a bit on BBC (I think) about how he'd reinvented them this year, gone 3-4-3/3-5-2 and started banging the goals in. Then after the Chelsea game it sounded like he'd done the usual flat back 9.

    Here's the fluff:

    Strangely seems to have gone for a Burton from the European football pages shortly after full-time.

    I'm not actually concerned about who he got.... It is more that he wanted more of the budget to be spent on that position.
