BREAKING NEWS JUST IN

News just in that Tottenham Hotspurs boss Harry Redknapp boss has just been sacked by the Tottenham board for reasons that we do not know yet. It has come to as a surprise to us as Harry has done such a great job with Spurs and has got them qualified for the Champions League.





It has just recentley came out of the Tottenham dressing room that the Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is planning a quick appointment at the helm of his now Champions League side and he does not care about past experiences or history at this level, he just wants to make a quick appointment.




Sky Bets prices for the next Tottenham manager have priced at:

Martin O'Neil 2/1 (Fav)
Roberto Di Matteo 4/1
Chris Hughton 5/1
Gus Poyet 6/1
Paul Lambert 6/1
Jorge Jesus 10/1
Martin Jol 25/1
Jose Mourinho 50/1
Steven Dodds 150/1

Well, it certainley looks like Martin O'Neil is the favourite to land this job and that comes to no surprise to anyone as he was knocking on the Champions League door with Aston before his shock exit.Roberto Di Matteo sacked by West Brom just a few days ago which came as a surprise to I think everyone including Roberto, he will be looking to get back into management as quick as pissible I would imagine,Chris Hughton recently sacked by Newcastle also in with a great shout. Gus Poyet a very strong outsider to land this job, doing brilliantly with Brighton in League one and he is also a former Assistant here at White Hart Lane under the Juande Ramos reign. A very strong contender he is. Also at the same price we have Paul Lambert another dark horse doing brilliantly with Norwich and he may well fancy a Champions League team. Then we have the outsiders Jorge Jesus, Martin Jol, The Special One Jose Mourinho and a relativley unknown person Steven Dodds. Jorge Jesus a double winner with benfica in the 2009/10 season, Martin Jol a former spurs boss currently unemployed following a spell with Ajax, Jose Mourinho I realy cant see the Special One leaving Real Madrid without anything to show for his time there and finally Steven Dodds a unknown former footballer who player for Scottish Premierleague Side Kilmarnock FC, he has had no managerial experience what so ever and is a real outsider to land the job.






This is my first ever attempt at a story so I want HONEST opinions I dont care if they are bad just tell em ways I can improve my stroys

I WANT THE JOB.

Gus Poyet has put himself out there for the Tottenham job he said in a press conference he believes he has what it takes to win the Champions League and indeed the Premierleague with Tottenham. He also said if he doesn't get the job he hopes Brighton fans can understand why he has applied for the job.



LEVY ANNOUNCES NEW MANAGER​

Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy has announced his new manager as Steven Dodds. A massive shock to us and indeed all football fans. I wonder what the Tottenham fans think about the decision of there Chairman. Dodds who has had no past managerial experience at any club never mind a Champions League club has been appointed as manager of Tottenham Hotspurs. He has beaten Martin O'Neil, Di Matteo, Chris Hughton and Martin Jol to the job. No question about it them four managers will be trying to phone Daniel Levy and ask him just why this young man has beaten them to the job. Daniel Levy did say he doesn't care about past experience so I guess that will be his answer.They will be bitterley dissapointed. Not to mention he also beat off competition from Gus Poyet who put himself out there and said he would love to manager Tottenham.



Contract Details


Type - Full Time Contract
Wages - £17,000 p/w
Started - 6/7/2010
Expires - 30/6/2010

New Spurs boss an Arsenal fan!​

It has emerged to us that the new Tottenham manager Steven Dodds is an Arsenal fan. It was revealed to the whole world when he was asked in an interview "Some fans take in a new unknown manager if he is a hardcore fan of who they are managing does this apply to you?" Dodds' reply was

"Well I hate to admit but if that is the case then I am aswell packing my bags and heading for the hills just now as I am a die hard....... Arsenal fan.



Afterwards he had said he was not going to let his love for Arsenal get in the way of his plans for Tottenham he also mentioned he is not going to have a soft spot for Arsenal when the two North London rivals meet in the Premierleague​



Tottenham Hotspur spokesperson Mike Jackson has released the statement that he has the support of all Tottenham fans as long as he sticks to his words and does not back down from Arsenal and indeed any club to that matter.
