I have an Oldham supporting friend who said the best day of his life was when he moved to Mitcham (yes Mitcham!!!).

Wouldn't you just hate to coach this club? Imagine being under the permanent scrutiny of the class of 92!

Wonder how his wife will like that , I was because she couldn’t settle in Burnley is why he left there
People change and Glasgow’s got more to offer than Burnley.

True but Manchester was only just up the road.
True but people’s lives change and not everyone is cut out for moving around for their partner’s job early on, whereas 10 years on with 3 kids and having them kicking around the house jobless it might be different.

His youngest is 2 years old. Perhaps he's thinking of Scotland's superior education system.

Former AFC Wimbledon coach Simon Bassey will take charge of Barnet for the "immediate future" after being appointed as first-team coach.

The Bees have also appointed ex-Dons manager Dave Anderson, 59, as an assistant coach to 45-year-old Bassey.
Former manager Paul Fairclough had been in temporary charge at the Hive after Tim Flowers left the club last month.

Poor move by Celtic to quietly leak the 'advanced talks' story last week (sure it was deliberate). Could backfire, but let's wait and see.

If so, quite right.

Otoh, maybe Howe's people put it out there, in order to put a bit of pressure on other clubs (Palace?) not to hang about and risk missing out?

A lot of people believe it's a done deal and Palace are not announcing it out of respect to Roy.
He could possibly manage Palace and Celtic at the same time and improve them on this season.
Delegate the training sessions. They'll rarely be playing at the same time.

Or if Frank decides he’s taken us as far as he can , I thought he would be the replacement . 2hrs journey from the Bournemouth Poole are
Not sure our budget could take Eddie Howe ... and just how much did he spend on getting Boscombe relegated last season???

It’ll cost the best part of £30m to get shot of him
I'd have thought so, except I read somewhere that rather than pay up the rest of his contract, Spurs can put him on Gardening Leave, meaning they'd have to continue to pay him only until he gets another job on an equal (or higher paying) salary.

And with Mourinho's recent record, he's not going to want to be out of work for too long at the age of 58, otherwise he could soon be written off as a Big Club Manager for good.

Yes, I think that was the situation with Pochetino.

Difficult to see where Mourinho’s next move would be though

That's the problem for him - Poch was able to wait until he got one of the half dozen big jobs which will have appealed to him.

But Mourinho is too young to retire just yet, and too egotistical to just take the money from some crappy club in the Middle East or China etc. Even a National Team job probably wouldn't appeal, unless maybe Portugal? Though even if that became available, with Ronaldo on his way out it might be hard to keep them at their present elevated level?

In any case, I suspect Mourinho probably thought the Spurs job was beneath him, except that after his struggles at Man U, it was probably his best offer. And with his ego he doubtless assumed he could do a decent job for a season or two, and use it as a stepping stone back to a genuinely Big Club.

Mark Cooper departs Forest Green Rovers.
Five defeats in the last six games with one draw, will get you noticed there for the wrong reasons.
Either that or he didn't fancy the Vegan diet.

I personally think Mourinho would be very happy sitting out of work for a while and picking up a Tottenham paycheck. I do however view it as his last big job in England, I can't see any possible other club outside of maybe Wolves...but they're not exactly looking at the moment.

There will be plenty of foreign clubs that would happily take him though, and I suspect that is what will happen.

Levy can't keep faith in him forever though, it looked a bad move at the time and proved to be so. Levy got excited at the prospect and threw logic out of the window IMO.
