    27 , Sorry for the delay but I was unable to post and have had to change my user name etc .I’m doing good, still on crutches and non weight bearing at least until I see my consultant on the 28th.
    I don’t see Poch going, even though he’s been far from happy this season, he’s stuck with 3 in their last year of contract plus others who he wanted out Rose, Wanyama etc,add to that only one of the 3 summer signings is fit enough to play. He may have trouble getting replacements in January so for that reason only we won’t be in either European competitions next season.

    Let’s face it, what top club would bring in a manager who only has one seasons of experience of management, and that wasn’t in the top league??….Pagan”

    One who had lost their best player and the best player in the PL who couldn’t buy anyone for two transfer windows which might have put off the most obvious managrial choices which led them to turn to a very intelligent former player and Club legend whose heart was totally in the Club and with his Assistant knew the inside outs of the Academy and the Academies best up and coming young players and managed two of the most promising young players for a season too maybe!

    Totally different circumstances Pagan but you know that just as well as I do!?

    999, to be honest I was thinking of Pep when I wrote it, one season with Barca B and then straight into the big time…..Pagan

    Chelsea are completely excused for bringing in Lampard. He’s the exception because of the rather strange state of events. It’s any other top club that is taking a huge and potentially unnecessary risk.

    There is a lad from Sunderland who lives across the hall from me. He told me they sacked their manager even though they are something like 6th. So I had a little lightbulb moment and just asked him “would you take Gerrard?” and he had to think about it.

    That right there underlines my point about how Liverpool fans need to consider the mans credentials as a manager and not a legendary player.

    (EDIT : sry i forgot what thread this was in)

    SPURS SHOULDN’T SACK POCH. POCH DOESN’T WANT TO GO (APPARENTLY). There, what a recovery.

    Pagan… 999…. ✌️ dont want to point out the obvious but… ✌️? Lampard is by far not the first manager we’ve appointed who had little to no prior experience. I’d argue we’ve a pretty good track record in it being successful with it. The legend of Sir Bob the Italian and Gullit and Vialli with their cups spring to mind!

    Here’s why.
    Glen Hoddle
    Ruud Gullit
    When the ball hits the net like a Fukken rocket It’s vialli…
    Anndre Villa Boas
    Avram Grant
    Bobby Di matteo
    Frank Lampard.

    Could throw in Englands number 2, Steve Holland?

    Where’s banjo, awfully quite good sir. I have said for years Chelsea needed to ditch the likes of Willian and Hazard and player power inn the dressing room. It looks as though Lampard has gone and done the job with. big brush and just continued what Sarri and Conte started with the horrendous likes of Costa and other great players but who were pains to the clubs backside.

    My question to thee Banjo, would you be happy with the sale of Dire, Aurier, Eriksen et all if it meant you could sustain a league and UEFA cup team for the next few years? Would you even consider the sale of Kane?

    Just how far would spurs fans go to back poch?

    Didn’t Steve Holland manage Chelsea for 1 game on a Caretaker basis 442??

    I think we have to discriminate between the two different eras of Chelsea the Bates era and the Abramovich era.

    The Abramovich era for obvious reasons has seen much more high profile appointments and whether Lampard would have been appointed without the transfer ban is open to conjecture but given all the circumstances he was probably the right appointment at that time.

    The appointment of Hoddle at time was a great appointment imo and he started the first Chelsea rejuvenation under Bates.

    Hoddle left Chelsea to manage England. Gullit’s appointment followed by Vialli’s was designed to take that on and they did.

    Villas Boas was meant to be Jose without the baggage and he came to us having won the treble at Porto he was the wrong appointment for all sorts of reasons.

    Grant was appointed Caretaker Manager and then inexplicably we gave him a 3 year contract he gave his all but was never the right man imo, he got us to a CL Final but was then sacked.

    Di Matteo a Chelsea playing legend was appointed Caretaker Manager and went on to win the FA Cup and CL he deserved his chance but the job was too big for him.

    As I said in my original post it’s all about the circumstances.

    ……Pep was a risky appointment at the time but he was steeped in Barca having come up through La Masia it worked and the rest is history but plenty of times it doesn’t and Chelsea appointing Lampard was a risk hopefully it comes off.

    My initial post was written about Pep, and yes I did think about putting a bit about Frank and hoping he could do similar things, however I decided to intentionally miss that out in order to get a bit of debate going, which it seems to have done.

    For me, with Chelsea having the transfer ban, Jody and Frank were the best options, and personally I’d like to see the two windows ban upheld so the youngsters get a whole season to prove themselves and others may get a chance to stake a claim in the domestic cup Competitions should we keep progressing.

    I just hope when the ban is lifted we buy sparingly and specifically to cover the positions we are weak in and don’t just blanket buy and shove the kids back into the token appearance mode just to try and keep them happy…..Pagan

    I would be stunned if Chelsea were to go into the market with an idea of replacing Mount or Abraham. Even Tomori is getting a lot of praise. I honestly haven’t taken as much notice of him but by the sounds of it, people want to see how he develops in the first team.

    Jose Mourinho turned down Lyon’s approach to become their new manager because the former Manchester United and Chelsea boss has already found another club, according to the Ligue 1 side’s president Jean-Michel Aulas. (Goal) ????

    So, I reckon all us Spud-ites are expecting some movement in January, a notourioulsy difficult month to do business in, but I think we’re going to see some attempts at least!! (I’ll say it before the puppy does!)

    A good window, and second half of the season, for me, would be for at least seeing Wee Ryan and Lo Cecil get a run of games to see what they can do, and recall Wee Jack from Leeds, as he’s doing nobody any favors getting splinters in his bum from sitting on the bench.

    Now, that’s probably as good as it will realistically get!! 🙂

    As for outs, I’d like to see Wee Erik, Danny-boy, and Toby gone. We all know they’ll be going, and none of them are pulling up tress on the pitch, don’t care what any of them say in the “fish-wrappings”. Performances speak for themselves and all three of them have obviously forgotten we all have TV’s!!

    Not going to guess what we could get, would like to think a minumum of 40 million bottle tops for the lot, in today’s crazy market.

    As for ins, another AM, a LB and CB to replace them all, apples for apples so to speak. In an ideal world, I’d have Chillwell and Maddison from Foxy Ladies, and perhaps Ake from Bournemouth, but I’d doubt we’d get much change from 200 mill for that lot, even if we could get the clubs to sell.

    Maybe this Frenandes chap from Portugal for the AM role, but after that, I’m open for suggestions… 🙂

    The lad at Leeds can’t get into the Leeds team Chucky be even tougher to get in the Spurs team particularly if the rumours are true that he wasn’t a Poch signing.

    The bigger transfers you mention would struggle to get done in January imo and I can’t see anyway that Leicester will sell both Chillwell and Maddison in the Summer window let alone in a January window. And have Spurs got circa £200m to spend because the contract rebels will bring in peanuts by comparison.

    Nothing wrong with a wishing and hoping though. I’m hoping for Chillwell myself once the ban is lifted.?

    Problem for Spurs, is what is the perception going to be of the club from Maddison and Chilwell’s point of view if they offload their big players? Buying these two players now is far too late, this should have been done a season ago. They’ll just be seen as a selling club. And to turn the tables somewhat, why aren’t Leicester trying to sign bigger players to try and hold on to what they have and build up? – particularly when many of the other big clubs are in transition. Why are they effectively waiting for bids to come in for 2 of their senior players?
