Spurs get ‘No thanks’ No 4 as Irons look to future

Spurs managerial candidates queue up chance of saying no to the job

In the hope that a few delusional Spuds fans are reading this it’s amusing to report that yet another leading boss has turned them down.

As the Hammers look towards their brightest season for years, life in the Sours side of north London gets grimmer and grimmer.

The days when the Spurs mob took the greatest pleasure in seeing us struggle with the appointment of managers it’s good to report – as George Harrison once sing – that all things must pass.

Having sacked  Mourinho in April Daniel Levy is having a seriously difficult time in finding a replacement – it’s a sight to behold for us Hammers fans.

Sevilla president Jose Castro has revealed that the north Londoners have made what he called a ‘dizzying’ offer to Julen Lopetegui to become their new head coach, but that he has no intention to move as he’s happy where he is.

Spurs have flip-flopped between candidates during a chaotic process, holding talks with Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte, Paulo Fonseca and Gennaro Gattuso,New managing director of football Fabio Paratici is now leading the search for a new manager

In an interview with Spanish radio station Cadena SER, which was published on Sevilla’s official website, Castro said: ‘Julen rang me and told me. He said he’d received offers he’d not listened to in addition to a dizzying one from Tottenham.

‘But he said he doesn’t forget things and that he is very motivated here.

‘We believed and believe in him, giving him a two-year contract extension, and I’m sure he will bring much more to the club.’

  1. Great picture accompanying the article! It could also be one of Spurs fans lining up to return their season tickets?

  2. Just one thing wrong though Hugh . Dont think theyve got that many season ticket holders !

  3. Don’t know why the spuds are still looking for a manager, big Sam is their man….a perfect fit and he may even keep them up!

  4. Neil Warnock is their man. Just the guy to dig them out of trouble. Could recommend Sam Allardyce but he no longer has the proud record of never managing a relegated team. Might like to go for two in a row? Nice caption Hughie.

  5. Do you mean Colin? 😀

  6. Spurs have spent a billion on there new Stadium this is good news for the rest of the Premier league. They are also purchasing buildings in the area and building new blocks, just as Arsenal did under Mr Wenger , however where as Mr Wenger put most of the money on clearing the gunners debts on there stadium Spurs have not been lucky, with this Virus

  7. Breaking News: Alan Irvine Leaves the Hammers on a free to take over at Spurs. His parting gesture to WH fans was he hopes to get them relegated. 😉
