    It'll be pegged as the most amazing achievement as it is the best league in world and man city wwre so great even though they have almost 200 fair play charges and suffocate the talent pool. Whilst not succeeding as much as they should in Europe

    And I doubt he will stand for the club or fans *. And he's no shy to call them out on it either. He'd more than likely quit and tell them to * off before he's sacked

    We supposedly offered him a bumper new contract during that period too which was met with silence. So seemed like he was hedging his bets. I actually think he's did quite well for them but I will have very little sympathy for him if it goes Pete Tong. Everybody knows what Levy is like

    Well, I think Mbappe is the best IMHO, although I guess some people might say he's best as a winger; but I do agree that Kane is better than Haaland. We don't exactly know what happened; but FWIW, I think you are right. There's a reason Rodgers left us in February rather than seeing the season out and I have so much respect for Ange for not doing that. I think he'd be a fair bit further along if he had.

    Exactly as I said, Crystal Palace are a tough fixture and Sheffield Utd are essentially a gimme. I'm not saying Villa would definitely have lost if things were still in play; but it's clear it wasn't over if Spurs had beaten City. I'm 100% with Ange and against the Spurs fans on this one.

    Villa are in poor form and Palace are in good form. Palace winning isn't a surprise at all. 5-0 is some score.

    It does make the conduct of Spurs fans look even worse.

    The spurs fans were a disgrace against man city and I'm glad Ange called it out. They've been iffy of late and he has to take some responsibility for that but today shows clearly that 4th was there for the taking and for them to behave the way they did in a game like that was pathetic. Joke of a club.

    If Levy can get out of his own way, because he is truly the EPLs answer to Lawwell to some extent I think.

    Then there is literally zero reason as to why Spurs under Ange and just couple more players in his mould (he's spurs side are crying for a mobile striker in an upgraded version of Kyogo) that comes with a stronger midfield that helps get Maddison more open to assist attacks couldn't go on a strong Europa League run

    They will need to seriously add to the squad. Because they struggled to cope this year with injuries and that was without Europe.

    I don’t even think they need an upgraded version of Kyogo. I don’t want Kyogo to leave so don’t shoot me down for what I’m about to say, but Kyogo would fit in well in any Ange team. That Werner is absolute gash and isn’t fit to lace Kyogo’s boots.
    100% need major additions. I’d say 5 first team players. A winger, a striker, 2 mids and a fullback who can play either side much like Jura did for us.

    Think ange left it a full season before raiding his old clubs last time (Maeda) and I’m sure he’d said he’d done that before too in Australia…. If he wants kyogo £15 mil and he’s there’s. Do us a solid :34:

    Former Celtic boss Ange Posteocoglou admits he missed the fans in Scotland after leaving for Tottenham last summer.

    After leaving Celtic to a Treble in his final season, Postecoglou took his shot at the English Premier League with Spurs - with his all-out attacking style winning many admirers in North London and beyond -despite falling just short of securing Champions League football next season. However, the Australian hasn't forgotten about his time in Scotland - while on punditry duties for ITV gave a glowing report of the national team going into the crucial Euro 2024 clash with Hungary.



    Postecoglou boldly backed Steve Clarke's side to earn the win the final group stage game - and all-but secure a place in the knockout stage for the first time in Scotland's history. The Tottenham boss said: "I have to declare I am on the Scotland bandwagon. I followed them for a couple of years when I was at Celtic, obviously.

    They obviously got blown away that first game. It's always hard that first game of the tournament - it could go either way. The hosts could be nervous but Germany were flying, and that is probably as passive as I have seen the Scottish team in quite a long time. The strength they showed in the second game is their capacity to run, with energy. If they can bring that they can cause any team problems. They have talked about making history, I think they are a good bet for that tomorrow.


    He was then pressed by host Laura Woods on if he missed the Scottish fans following his time at Celtic Park after the scenes of the Tartan Army partying in Germany, the Australian admitted: 'I do. That is part of the reason I am on the bandwagon!

    When the national team plays they are great - and the good thing is that since Steve Clarke has taken over the team represents them really well. It is a credit to them, and the will play a big part tomorrow.
