Won't be long before the Spurs fans are up in arms if they do hire him.  It would also be a strange choice after what seemed to be a deliberate decision to not go for it in the transfer market over the last few seasons when Pochettino clearly wanted them to do so.  Perhaps Mourinho will be prepared to work on a budget 😏

So it is apparently what's going down..

Sorry if this has been posted but any on here think Karanka might join Jose at spurs as his assistant? AK hardly flooded with work it seems so might see it as a good opportunity.

Spurs might finally win something though, so maybe it's a tradeoff they are willing to make.

Win what though?  His clubs tend to spend huge sums of money to win a few domestic titles and cups.  If Spurs could win the Premier League then I'm sure they'd be delighted with that but he got nowhere near it at Manchester United and I can't believe that they've made this change to try and win a League Cup.   As his behaviour seems to limit his time at any club to about 3 years then he's got to get things moving very quickly.

Well if his spells at Chelsea & Man Utd are any guide, it will be a couple of years of success and trophies, followed by an acrimonious split amid lots of tabloid headlines and Twitter spats.

 

Sad really IMO and it shows how miserably short-term Daniel Levy's thinking is.

He didn't want to give Poch money to spend after years of building a squad that reached the Champions League final..and zero spending in the last 2 transfer windows...

 

Yet he's appointed a manager renowned for spending HUGE amounts of money...and never sticking around for more than 2-3 seasons.

 

Spurs fans had better enjoy the ride while it lasts...cause it won't be long and will likely have a bumpy ending.

'Going in a different direction' could just mean 'going down the cheaper route'.

Well, as the saying goes: you get what you pay for (or not, in this case). 🤔

    • We will win if Woody has realized we need to push up 15 yards and shut down the opposition midfield. The team works in unity. Now in the last two games we only played the second half so the team should be fresh enough.  I don’t see any reason why heads should drop because, they came out in the second halves with intent, which indicates belief and commitment and neither score line was embarrassing. I am expecting they will bounce back and up the anti. 
    • No I've been told the same but the wages wouldn't be a huge issue. From what I've been told the percentage isn't enormous and the amount wouldn't be a huge issue for the club. Again I can't say more than that. (other than it shouldn't cost the club more than 10k per week apparently) 
    • Giving up on a young player after one costly mistake sounds like horrible player management.
    • Middlesbrough v Birmingham Tuesday, 19:45 - The Riverside Stadium   "Well, at least I had the Christmas period off......"   The Form Middlesbrough last six: LLDDWW Two consecutive defeats on the telebox within the last week sounds ominous, but if we had got started quicker in both games the results could have been oh so different as Boro seemed to grow into both games. A brilliant December results-wise, which saw us pull away from relegation and had the more optimistic of us dreaming of sneaking into the playoffs. As Woodgate struggles through a very congested January while trying to keep players fresh, results are starting to suffer due to rotation (Rudy F'ing Gestede as a lone striker?!?). Hopefully this is just a blip against better teams and not the MotM curse rearing it's ugly head.   Birmingham last six: DWWLLD Brum have started to pick up a bit of form - and a couple of red cards - in their last 6 games, with goals aplenty being both scored and conceded, but only 2 losses registered. Former Tony Mowbray signing Lukas Jutkiewicz leads the line for Brum, having scored 9 goals so far this season. Pep Clotet's side currently sit in 18th, 1 point and one place below Boro, having scored 34 and conceded 45 so far this term.   The Line-Up It's a shame that this game was moved forward, as Woodgate alluded to in his post match interview it doesn't leave much time for anything but recuperation, and a bit more rest would be nice.... however, Birmingham do have a day less, so every cloud!  Hopefully we will see Fletch start up front again after his cameo against Fulham, and maybe Wing on for Clayton. You also have to wonder how long Coulson and Spence can go without a rest, but who would you replace them with at the minute?       Woody-Vision *Will be updated after the pre-match press conference*   The View From The Other Side *To be updated when I find it*
