“Not the man for the job, we well go down if he is the next manager,” reckons Spurs fan

Sky Sports is now reporting that Ange Postecoglou is the new preferred candidate to replace Antonio Conte as Tottenham manager. Initial target Arne Slot eventually rejected a move to the North London Premier League side, with the highly rated Dutchman instead signing a new improved deal with the Eredivisie champions, Feyenoord.

And the news has not been well received by Spurs fans who don’t want Ange to get the job and they are now totally disillusioned by Daniel Levy and this Board of Directors. According to Sky Sports, Celtic manager, Ange Postecoglou, has been named as the preferred candidate, though nothing will be discussed or decided until after Celtic have played in this weekend’s Scottish Cup Final against Inverness Caledonian Thistle where the Australian coach has a tremendous opportunity to complete a Treble.

Tottenham fans certainly don’t seem to be too excited about the prospect of Ange Postecoglou becoming their new manager, to say the least, as we can see from dropping into the comments section on Caught Offside.

“Not the man for the job, we well go down if he is the next manager,” reckons Spurs fan James Bone.

“What a load of rubbish, Levy is starting to get desperate, Nagelsmann already turned Levy down along with Kompany who Levy also wanted. Levy’s been waiting to see who might show an interest in coming before saying they are the prefered candidate, he can’t afford to be ridiculed any further, he has his back firmly against the wall as it is,” stated Anthony Borg.

“Utter rubbish that Levy is considering the fans in this process. We have known since January that Conté was either going or would be pushed and yet it appears Levy and his idiots have not made ANY plans to mitigate the situation we are in from January onwards. Since then they have been going around like headless chickens being rejected left right and centre cos Levy is a busted flush. GET Levy and ENIC out,” said Simon Dweck.

“As others have pointed out, Levy hasn’t got a clue who the next manager will be, let alone have a preferred candidate. He has made the manager’s job a poisoned chalice, no one wants to take it and ruin their reputation. He is the one solely responsible for this situation. Levy out, ENIC out,” stated Cliff Chapman.

“Any second rate manager would be able to win the Scottish premiership and cup final if they were at Celtic, or (the)Rangers for that matter, as they are the only teams in Scotland who win anything anyway. This is obviously just what Spurs need, a manager with no Premiership experience, or anything like the complexities of the Premiership. Levy is hopeless,” Angry Man fumed.

“Frankly, a complete shambles and it has Levy’s fingerprints all over it and he is getting increasingly desperate. Rejected by all the top candidates and then capped off by Poch, who was never approached, getting the Chelsea job. Sheer and utter incompetence.

“Postecoglou has no experience in any of the top 5 European leagues, which will dovetail in very nicely with our new Aussie Director of Football, who also has no experience in Europe’s top leagues and whose background is in Australian Rugby League!

A potential Postecoglou hire has ‘bust’ written all over it. Nuno Mark 2, but this time with no back-up plan! Nothing will change until we drive these profiteering parasites out of our club. Levy the highest paid CEO in the Premier League, it beggars belief! ENIC out!” said Matt.

“Levy is clutching at straws. A second rate manager for a second rate and skinflint chairman. This is going to end in tears, sackings and chaos as all Levy’s recent decisions have. I could do a good job managing Celtic in a SPL 2 horse race. The prem though is a different prospect though…… But hay! Who the hell would want to work with our chairman and board,” Bruce Tolhurst stated.

“I entirely agree with the comments made above about Levy and his so called Board of Directors. They haven’t got a clue about football. They should leave it to the manager and Director of Football if they can find some decent candidates. I rather fancy Luis Enrique for the manager although he has no premier league experience, but he has won plenty of trophies and was very successful with Barcelona and the Spanish World Cup team apart from last December in Dubai. I think Postegoglou will stay with Celtic,” concludes Jeff.
