    Chuky. every country in the world throughout history has been in the wrong, much of it being highlighted to day, in News, so I am not one for throwing stones at glass windows.

    Nil, we’ll never know but I think Levy had already decided Mourinho had to go it would have made that decision much more difficult for Levy had Jose somehow steered to a League Cup win.

    It was a very strange decision to sack a Manager in the same week if a Cup Final.

    Nine, at that point of time in 2004, there was a Revolution. We ourselves were just stupidly in a bad place throwing our chances away.

    The point is mate. I had huge admiration for Jose.

    That’s the Angle I was coming from.

    πŸ™‚ It’s all good bar Reds not winning the ‘Coca Cola Cup’ since 1995 or 2012 πŸ™‚

    Congrats to the City fans on another trophy. Didn’t watch the game unfortunately so can’t comment on the Laporte bookings. I struggle to have any sympathy for Spurs, though, after sacking a manager a week before a final. From what I read, Spurs weren’t exactly playing free-flowing attacking football, the absence of which was supposedly the main factor in removing one of the game’s most decorated managers.

    It just shows the depth of the City squad that they can bring in a Β£60mil CB, who would start for any other PL team, when their first choice CB is out. Just incredible depth in that squad. They’re so far ahead of everyone else in the league.

    GI Blues, I fully agree, it was embarrassingly one-sided, I have no problem with that, you were excellent, I don’t think young Ryan made the right choices of subs, he could have brought the whole bench on and you still would have won, now if Ledley King was playing …………
    From a Spurs view , we need 5 top quality players to compete at the top table and with Levy there it’s not going to happen.
    As for Reguillon he could have got a 2nd yellow , maybe not as clear as Laporte’s

    First time for a while I familiarized myself with the Spurs Team.

    You’re right Shines: Investment into players needed. There are and have been young players coming through which is a testament to the ethos of the club, but to compete, you need to be bringing in ready-made quality, also filling key playing positions.

    Rodgers would be a perfect fit. Unfortunately, I can’t see him leaving Leicester at this moment in time. They themselves have money and more likely to be kinder to him with the purse-strings than Levy. He ultimately is the problem and needs to go.

    Ed, I would love to hear from Levy why in the week of a Cup Final he decided to sack Mourinho and appoint a 29 year old who had only managed at Academy level.

    Accepting that Mourinho and Spurs were the wrong fit and a change was needed that was just ridiculous timing and and confirmed why so many Spurs fans get so frustrated with Levy.

    Appointing a new Manager won’t solve Spurs problems when Levy is their biggest problem imo.

    Well done city
    My view was Laporte should have been off and so should regulion
    It’s rough watching most teams play city as mostly who ever they play look so bad we have so many times so won’t give the spuds lads much grief especially with a rookie caretaker manager
    They really need a lot of work tho
    As do we … comes down to owners
    If you have a good owner like Chelsea or city then you can compete if not then you can’t and are milked dry in the process !

    Hopefully SL fallout means a few of them go but won’t hold my breath

    That’s it Nine. I wouldn’t mind if Mason’s team had come out all guns blazing in an attempt to take the game to City. The fact they were as defensive and cautious as ever makes it all the more baffling that they let him go ahead of a final.

    Steve, I’ve no interest in giving the Spurs lads grief. They suffer enough watching their side πŸ˜„. Levy, on the other hand, deserves all the stick he gets.

    Steve, how much longer does Arteta have? They must be losing patience with him now, surely.

    No idea Ed
    With the owners I think he is safe because they have no ambition to win things just for cash
    With fans he losing them game by game
    He clearly has the potential and maybe with w better run board would do better but some of his decisions are bizarre. Then who replaces him?
    Could go either way but I fully expect him to be manager next season regardless

    Arsenal have a free run at Allegri now that Bayern seemingly want Nagelsmann. He’s a born winner who will make Arsenal a solid team. People will say his sides don’t play entertaining football but I’m not sure that’s a luxury Arsenal can be striving for from their current position.

    I’d be do everything possible to get Allegri unless the likes of Rodgers could be persuaded. I still think Arsenal missed a trick by not bringing in Ancelotti. Clubs must surely have now learnt from the appointments of Arteta and Lampard that you simply can’t afford to take a risk on a rookie manager at this level in the hope that they are the next big thing.

    This is indeed the problem as I’ve discussed on the other thread. The fact that Rodgers is such a big favourite to take over at Spurs just demonstrates the lack of managerial options at the moment. Don’t get me wrong, he has some very good attributes. But I think he’s also been found wanting in other areas. The fact that both Man Utd & Spurs have both turned to Mourinho in recent years and that Arsenal thought targeting Pep’s second in command would be worth a punt, shows how desperate the situation is.

    No I agree Mikus. Rodgers has his flaws but Arsenal aren’t the pull they once were so I think they’d be doing very well if they could persuade Rodgers to give up what he has at Leicester to come there.

    He’s proven to develop young players; Sterling back in 2014 prime example. City then came in for him.

    He’s done really well for example with Youri Tielemans, and Harvey Barnes. These players have more belief and confidence in themselves.

    He’d be a perfect fit since Poch, but with that all, Rodgers would need to be backed by Levy.

    Shiney, as promised, I watched the full match on City TV. OK. two fouls by Laporte , if he had been sent off though so should your LB who committed a lot more fouls throughout the game. I guess the Ref even things up a bit and did not want a sending off in his Final. Interesting what Clattenburg said, which i agreed with, if Laporte did get the first yellow, no way would he have done the second challenge. a view expressed bya few as well. As with all these things, win some/loose some but I doubt Spurs would have threatned us any more, we would have taken Gungdoghan off and brought on Rodri and closed shop but still capable of scoring All, subjective Shiney Spurs had players on the pitch that should have done better though
