    That Chelsea team of Jose’s was phenomenal. Only conceding 15 goals in a whole Premier League Season will never be beaten.

    It was Tugay and they only lost one game to City away a penalty by Anelka.

    Celtic have just announced Postecoglu as their manager. This will be very interesting as his style of play is very much the Pep brand, which takes a considerable amount of time to bed into a team. However, once you get it right it’s beautiful to watch. Postecoglu has been successful pretty much everywhere over the last 10 years but this will be his sternest test. I do hope Celtic give him more than one season to prove himself as it will be well worth it if it pays off.

    “but this will be his sternest test.” The SPL where the only competition is Rangers?

    yes, but if you don’t finish top you very quickly get turfed out. To date he’s only really proven himself in Aus and Japan, where he’s won everything on offer, so Scotland will be a step up

    Everton appointing Rafa is a risk the fans don’t want him because of his Liverpool connections and because he called Everton a small Club when he was Liverpool Manager and despite his managerial ability he was never accepted by a large slice of the Chelsea fan base for similar reasons.

    Also according to reports this is being driven by Farhad Moshiri and a number of the Everton Board are against it.

    I understand the temptation though.

    It won’t be pretty watching Everton, that’s for sure. Newcastle were well and truly dreadful to watch under him. I’d be very underwhelmed as an Everton fan.

    Ye I don’t get it Ed. Bruce gets lots stick abd he’s finished higher then Rafa in both seasons. Newcastle actually started pmeting much better when Bruce when to 3 at the back and two upfront

    I think Rafa is to old school abd like jose , his tactics are outdated.

    It’s the perfect appointment for him as lives in Liverpool but it is going to cause issues for both sets of supporters. Everton fans certainly won’t be happy

    I think Rafa offers a feeling of safety and experience which can obviously be attractive attributes to a club. Tactically, he’s one of the best. As a man manager, he’s not. And therein lies the problem. For me it’s not so much that managers like Rafa or JosΓ© are outdated tactically. But they are outdated culturally, in terms of players now being more expressive on the pitch, being more powerful and influential in the dressing room, wanting to be loved and playing where they want to be played. That’s primarily what both these managers are struggling with which leads to frustrations on both sides.

    No appointment yet of Rafa? I wonder if Everton might be testing the water and wanting to see the reaction from the media, social media and match going Everton fans before finalising anything?

    Gattuso is now the target but he just left fiorentina after 21 days over disagreements over transfers and transfer budget!

    It’s getting more than embarrassing for Spurs and the managerial situation at Spurs won’t convince Kane he should stay although I can’t think anyone will agree to pay the stupid money Levy will want for him and Spurs will probably get stuck with a very disenchanted player.

    Reading between the lines the latest managerial casualty at Spurs seems to be down to Paratici reacting to Guttoso’s sudden availability and thinking him a stronger candidate than Fonsecca

    Levy and Guttoso is hardly a match made in heaven though given how explosive Gattuso can be if he doesn’t get his own way

    What a shambles Spurs are making of this but well done Levy on finding probably the only manager in the world more disruptive and explosive than Mourinho and the main target to replace Mourinho (Conte).

    I think Spurs, or Levy are having a mid life crisis.

    Looks like somebody in the media or ‘sources’ playing silly beggars attaching Gattuso. No wonder some Spurs fans out there are irate (rightly so). Levy to me just wants a gap filler as ‘KPI’s’ are met on a shoe string budget.
