Roberto Martinez?

But, why?

Martinez by his own admission has the philosophy that he would rather win a game 5-4 than 1-0. He made us insanely good going forward, but his neglect at the back is what caused problems (and led to his sacking). 

Being 2-1 to West Ham with 10 minutes to go and losing 3-2 because he wanted to score more sums him up, and was the game that made me realise he wasn't going to take us anywhere.

This isn’t happening. Don’t know why anyone ever trusts sky.

With ten men xD. Felt like the whole last two years he was in charge at Everton were us just watching that exact game over and over again.

Maybe he's improved since he left, it has been about 5 years and as far as I've seen he's done better with Belgium than I expected, so I'm not going to make myself look silly by guaranteeing that he'd be a failure at Spurs, because I think it *could* work, but I will say that it *could* also be disastrous for them. A risky appointment if they go with it but then I don't really know who else is available.

His stock will have risen as a result of his success with Belgium. He's found a playing style that's turned a team of individuals in to a team were heavy rotation isn't a concern as everybody can assert the game plan effectively.

I'm not sure this would be a good move for Spurs at all, tbh.

I always thought Roberto Martinez was a pretty funny manager at Everton. He was ambitious, yes, but he also naive as fuck. Seemed like every time Everton took a step forward, he'd make sure to make sure they also took a step backwards. I thought he essentially undid a lot of the good work that Moyes had done in making Everton a solid and difficult to beat side all in the name of playing attacking football.

That he's done pretty decently as the Belgium manager doesn't really surprise me all that much, tbh. Belgium's absolutely loaded with quality players, I think most managers would do pretty decently with them tbh.

Conte now the bookmakers favourite to take over at Tottenham.

Think Conte will either return to Juventus or take a break.

Reckon it's all bollocks.

Just lazy journalism. Hot topic right now and after PSG not winning the league.

Nope, club journos saying this is true... there’s a chance here.

You’re only going back if you get guarantees Kane will stay and you’re getting money to sign 4-5 players otherwise, he might as well be looking at jobs elsewhere.

The man who can't win the french league with PSG is definitely the right person to get spurs back into the UCL

What was the state of play when he took over in January? I remember that PSG weren't top but if they were miles behind it can hardly be used against him. Also Tuchel was sacked for having PSG in that position and he's not done badly at Chelsea so far has he

2 points behind in 3rd place.

I think he's had a new manager bounce at Chelsea (a bit like Di Matteo), but has been found out lately. Chelsea league form has been poor last 3 games. Also, lost an FA Cup final to Leicester...don't think he's done a great job, not terrible either

They've definitely had some poor results recently and even if they win the CL we all know how Chelsea operate and the time to judge him will be next season

You’re talking to a nonsensical Arsenal supporter, anyone with a brain knows that you don’t judge a manager on half a seasons work. Especially when that involved a Champions League semi final and still being in the title race on the final day.

He should at least get to the interview stage, request Levy get down and lick his shoes, and then tell them to fuck off.

If he wants out of PSG already, as seems to be insinuated, there is also a club in Madrid that would probably be interested.

Heard that maybe Conte might be taking over at Madrid? Or maybe if Poch goes to Spurs, Conte will take over at PSG.

If Poch is willing to come back, I think Spurs should be doing whatever it takes to get him back & back him properly this time

I’d be very surprised if he goes back. Isn’t Kane one of the few players who wanted him out? Hardly gonna agree to stay if they bring Poch back in, and if you’re Poch, that said without Kane is a problem.

Pochettino is massively overrated and not winning the league with PSG is always going to be seen as a big failure but I think PSG will at least give him another season. If not, then I still don't know why he would rejoin Tottenham. Squad isn't going to be as good as when he was there before, and they won't spend big, and they're not in the Champions' League. If he was leaving PSG, then Juventus, Real Madrid, and possibly Man Utd would be possible destinations for him.

Nah, Danny is right, expecting him to make up a couple of points on Lille, despite having better players in every single position, is unreasonable...
