Wolves should have gone for Eddie Large with Sid Little as assistant coach
I think Syd Little might have got the manager's job by default.

I would be underwhelmed if I was a Wolves fan.

Eight years as Benfica's youth coach
Two years as Sheffield Wednesday's assistant coach
One year as Swansea's assistant coach
One year in charge of Benfica's B side
One year in charge of Benfica's first team

But they blindly believe that Mendes is all about making Wolves greatÖ.they havenít realised that in the last window before Brexit restrictions kicked in he had them pay over the odds for Silva & arguably SemedoÖnow Nuno has gone & you wouldnít be at all surprised to see Patricio, Neves etc go this summer too

Sounds like just the man to take them exactly where we want him to.

I see yet another manager has turned down Spurs.  News of Levy being a tit must be known around the world now 😁

Baggies have appointed the the Barnsley manager as the next man to achieve the much heralded "Double" (promotion followed by instant relegation).

That's not a bad appointment, Ismael did a very good job at Barnsley last season.

So as usual the bitters will have a manager who will in all likelihood get them promoted. Then they will fire him around December 2022 as they languish in the bottom 3 of the PL. Hire some mercenary to keep them up, but still go down. They will then subsequently fire whoever took them down. The following summer repeat the process with the next manager.

Nuno now the leading contender for the Spurs job.

Until he isnít. Iíve never known any manager to be the leading candidate for so many jobs, be on verge of accepting all of them and never getting any of them.

Maybe he's just shit at interviews. So they are initially keen but end up going elsewhere. Some managers are obviously better than others based on track records but then not landing anything - kind of the exact opposite of Paul Lambert.

Hard to know how he would go without Uncle Jorge setting up all his transfers though.

I imagine him in those boardrooms during the interview when we gets asked a question about certain players or positions of need, whipping out his phone and asking Mendes each time who heíd suggest. Then pulling out baby oil because all his players will be covered in that head to toe during games.

Tottenham may also be the problem.

New manager asks about his transfer budget and is told that there isn't one and he has to sell their best player.
