Spurs cannot afford another reckless splurge if they cash in on Kane

  Spurs cannot afford another reckless splurge if they cash in on Kane At 27, Kane is in the prime of his career and time is running out to end it with the honours his talent deserves. And make no mistake his talent will carry a huge fee - possible a world record one.The England captain has joined the likes of Dimitar Berbatov, Luka Modric and Gareth Bale in growing disillusioned with life in north London - telling the club he wants to leave this summer in a bid to add some trophies to his sparkling CV.

Spurs were simply too good for United after the break and the contest was effectively over once Kane directed in a superb header for his first goal at Old Trafford after 50 minutes and Moura swiftly swept home Christian Eriksen's perfect pass for the second. The outstanding Moura raced clear to add the third six minutes from time to make it nine points from nine for Spurs . Three-time Lion Matt Dawson says head coach Warren Gatland has once again got his selection right for this summer's South Africa tour.

Spurs may still be a country mile behind runaway leaders Manchester City but after a run of four league games without a win , this result did at least get their domestic campaign back on track and pushed them back to within touching distance of the top four. It moved them above Arsenal, until Sunday afternoon at least. Stoke went one worse than conceding their usual four against Spurs by letting in five as Eriksen finished past Butland. Eriksen coolly lofted the ball into the net to round off a truly five-star display for Spurs against the abysmal Potters.

Daniel Levy is risking further fury from the Tottenham Hotspur faithful as his search for their next manager appears to be drawing to a close…

What’s the word?

According to The Times’ chief sports correspondent Matt Lawton, Spurs are in advanced talks with Paulo Fonseca over their vacant role and is now thought to be the first-choice candidate to become the head coach.

The 48-year-old is believed to be the chosen option of incoming sporting director Fabio Paratici, who is set to be announced in the coming days after his departure from Juventus, where he won 19 trophies in 11 years.

Pritchard expected the 45-year-old coach , who spent the previous two seasons as Nick Nurse’s top assistant in Toronto, to make an impact with his new-age approach and his creativity. When the hiring was announced in October, Pritchard acknowledged he was betting big on a young coach . Pritchard said he challenged some current players to become more vocal leaders and that he might add another veteran to help hold the bench more accountable. The Pacers have now fired two coaches in less than 12 months. Pritchard let go of Nate McMillan in August after a third consecutive first-round playoff exit

The Auditor-General finds Australia's biosecurity systems are not protecting the nation's assets as well as they should be.

"It is shocking more isn't being done to protect Australia's agriculture industry from biosecurity risks ," Ms Collins said.

Fonseca recently departed AS Roma after they hired Jose Mourinho as his successor in May.

Worse than Gross

Spurs have certainly struggled in their pursuit to find their next permanent manager.

The North London outfit were initially linked to Julain Naglesmann, who opted to join Bayern Munich from RB Leipzig and then to Brendan Rodgers, who would prefer to stay at FA Cup winners Leicester City.

They also held talks with ex-manager Mauricio Pochettino over a sensational return, whilst Antonio Conte was on the verge of becoming their next boss before a move collapsed at the 11th hour over numerous concerns from both parties.

This appointment is a monumental one as Levy and the club’s hierarchy have come under intense pressure from supporters in recent months, all kickstarted by their botched plans to form a European Super League.

Sterling 'not interested in moving to Spurs as part of Kane deal'

  Sterling 'not interested in moving to Spurs as part of Kane deal' Pep Guardiola's have stepped up their interest in the Spurs forward and are ready to launch a £100million bid, which is set to be rejected by chairman Daniel Levy. There have been suggestions that City could include several players as part of a deal for the England captain, including Sterling. But ESPN report that the 26-year-old is not open to being part of any transfer swap.Sterling has been a key member of Guardiola's squad since joining the club in 2015. The forward has won nine trophies in five years including three Premier League titles.

"It was somewhat shocking how much control big banks had over their own bailout [and] the overwhelming deference show by Treasury officials to the banks." Much has been made about Barofsky's criticism of Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, who told CBS News he is "deeply offended" by how he's portrayed in Barofsky's book Bailout: An Inside Account of How Washington Abandoned Main Street While Rescuing Wall Street . "TARP was an abysmal failure on those very important goals the reason why they got that money to give to the banks in the first place," Barofsky says.

Since that fell through, many have protested against the chairman, as well as the ENIC Group, and this has merely been the culmination of underperformance, underachievement, and a lack of ambition on their part.

It seems that plenty of these fans are against the idea of Fonseca, which means there’s a serious risk of further apathy around the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium next season. Things could quickly turn sour if they do not get off to a good start, especially if Harry Kane seals his desired exit.

On social media, the Lilywhites faithful have been reacting to the news that the Portuguese looks set to become their next manager and it’s led to some calls suggesting that this would be an even worse appointment than Christian Gross in 1997.

Perhaps there are some similarities to be had with then, to now, as Fonseca has never managed in the Premier League yet has won titles and silverware in countries like Ukraine and Portugal.

Spurs could wave goodbye to Kane if Levy hires "stubborn" 62 y/o flop with "no plan B" - opinion

  Spurs could wave goodbye to Kane if Levy hires Tottenham might as well wave goodbye to Harry Kane if Daniel Levy thinks about appointing ex-Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri as Jose Mourinho's successor.Their quest to find a new manager has taken longer than expected, with it currently set to move into a second month, and in that time, Daniel Levy and co have been dealt plenty of setbacks.

“The abysmal record of hiring people of color in high ranking levels of NFL management is a reminder of the dark periods of civil rights history,” the statement added. “In 100 years of professional football, the NFL has moved from Fritz Pollard as its first African-American Head Coach in 1921 to four Head Coaches of color in 2020. Players of color make up 70.1 percent of the league’s players, Graves says, but minority coaches only fill a third of the league’s assistant coaching staff and far less of its upper management.

But Toronto won the Bargnani-Novak-Camby Bad Contract Tornado fiasco by scoring New York’s unprotected 2016 first-round pick. And when Toronto acquired Antonio Davis from New York for future Grantland Network star Jalen Rose and a 2006 first-rounder, that inadvertently became a tragic Knicks moment when they took Renaldo Balkman over Rajon Rondo. By the way, I always take it personally when San Antonio overpays someone. The Spurs are supposed to be the smartest team!

Gross had won two Swiss league titles prior to his arrival but was a bizarre choice from Alan Sugar as he looked to follow Spurs’ arch-rivals Arsenal and Chelsea with foreign appointments.

One Tottenham supporter said the potential arrival of Fonseca was “worse” than when Gross was hired, claiming that the club was a “joke,” whilst “embarrassing” and “cheap” were other phrases used to describe the news.

The 48-year-old has just left Roma having failed to guide them past fifth place in the Italian top-flight, they were also well-beaten by Manchester United in the Europa League, and he won just 52% of games in charge – the same as Mourinho at Spurs.

On the above evidence, Levy is about to open a can of worms in North London, with a manager that has recently been described as “abysmal.”
