  1. Next Manager?

    Do you really think it's as simple as them "not wanting to play Conte's football" what they just turned up one day and randomely decided they didn't like him anymore? We are a successful team, we don't win trophy's because we have submissive choir boys who unconditionally pander to wills of the manager. It's upto the gaffer to manage the characters correctly. That's what Fergie mastered, it's easy to say he booted the ego's that took him on, but that wasn't always the case. He kicked Beckham and Stam out because they were replacable, when Rooney took him on he was "punished" with a record breaking new deal, Keane may have been booted out in his twilight, but do you think he didn't do as bad if not worse than that interview in his prime? Managing big characters comes with the job in successful clubs and if managers can't get to grips with that it will prove their downfall at some point.
  2. 22. Willian

    During Mourinho's second season after he came back when players turned back on his, Willian was the only player drugging is forward. This season he was also one of our best players. Keeping him on the bench is on Conte. Lots of commentators were surprised to see him on the bench despite the fact that he create some this like 2 goals and score 3 himself. We pissed a league title with him on the bench mostly and even our best form last season came with the 352 alas him not playing. He's been a good player for us overall but i doubt we'd miss him that much. Why not? They can keep taking our assests once then are on the decline, if only Fergie out Woodward in happened a few years prior, we'd have had somewhere to send Kaloudanelka.
  3. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    I think super sub is his best role for this world cup. If Southgate's going down the high intensity route he did in the first half he'd be tanked by half time every game, and thats just thinking the game in isolation and not the quick turnover.
  4. If it was a back four i'd agree, but with the wingback role the offense game must be factored in more, else we'd just get pinned into a back 5 vs any half decent side and get soundly beaten anyway. Betrand has a decent cross but his overall link up play lacks to much for wingback, although he could have been an option for LCB. Southgate is actually winning me over big time, for the first time in my lifetime there seems to be a genuine identity and direction with the national team.
  5. Lesser of the evils. Rose has spectacularly declined and other options like Bertrand and Shaw are too limited offensively for wing back.
  6. It's happening again, first blow and England just collapse mentally.
  7. General World Cup Thread

    Im very nervous with the keeper situation, im a fan of Pickford but i feel a massive mistake from him is inevitable.
  8. General World Cup Thread

    You think? Aside from Spain vs Portugal it's been crap.
  9. 27. Andreas Christensen

    If anyone in our squad needs a strong world cup it's him. He lost the plot after his error against Barcelona.
  10. Next Manager?

    Remember in the past when Marcelo Bielsa was a name some people wouldn't have said no to when it came to discussing our next manager? He's heading to Leeds. Good to know our 2015 title defense isn't the biggest fall from grace anymore.
  11. Next Manager?

    No he won't.

    And furthermore, even if the best happens with Conte ie gets everyone he wants, sorts his differences out and is so happy he signs a new deal, we'd be one meh window (which will happen at some point) away from him kicking up shit and acting like he's got Sunderland's squad all over again. Im not even sure it would even be worth having 16/17 Conte back if the deal with the devil is he reverts to 17/18 Conte again before long, firstly because with Pep and City bang in their prime even having 16/17 Conte back likely still won't be enough for the title and i can't face last seasons Conte again, if last year was his only year i'd consider him on the level of Scolari, if not worse.
  13. Next Manager?

    It's one thing to be concerned and show it in a constructive manner (like your doing), it's another when the club starts getting slagged off in ways i'd expect to see on Spurs forums.
  14. Next Manager?

    If Sarri happens, Pedro must stay. He is tailor made for the type of footy Sarri plays.
