The brief wait is over as Mauricio Pochettino is confirmed as Tottenham’s new manager on a five year deal but will he break the trend of recent bosses and actually see that contract out? Daniel Levy’s lack of patience was highlighted at great length by Sky Sports News last night and there are now widespread calls for the new boss to be given time.

“A long-term contract doesn’t mean anything at Tottenham, that’s for sure,” said former player Jamie Redknapp.

“If they don’t finish in the top four this year there is going to be an awful lot of pressure on him. That’s been the way that they’ve run the club in the last few years; I don’t believe it’s the right way to go about it.

“But if they give him five years, he’s a young manager who did a good job at Southampton bringing young players through. I must admit that he was given a good base by Nigel Adkins – Southampton have a really good youth system there – and they’ll be hoping they can do that at Tottenham.”

Time is surely key but if Spurs finish sixth or even worse at the end of the next campaign, can Levy actually exercise patience for once?

  1. The Club and especially Daniel Levy have to back Mo Po in the transfer market and not only that they need to get their business done early, not leaving it to the last minute like they always do then wonder why the team haven’t gelled in time for the start of the new season..

    • Totally agree, I think we need 4 new players, LB CB LM CF. Kolarov and Remy would solve 2 of those positions. We need to get rid of a few players aswell, Dawson Lennon Soldado Capoue can all go, i think Livermore will go aswell but i would give him a go next year and loan bentalab out.

  2. If names were to be given to teams according to what is on their respective logos then:
    Arsenal would rightly be gunners,
    Hull city would be tigers,
    Swansea would be Swans,
    Wolverhampton would be wolves
    and Tottenham would be COCKS.

    Lol.

    • Took you all day to write that!! I suppose your gunner win the league next year as well are u? Your team is nothing special and hasnt been for years now.The gap and points between us for the last four seasons prove that!!! Fuck off……go suck on wengers werthers original.. coys
