Spurs To Target Sparky?!?!

Spurs To Target Sparky?!?!

Tottenham Hotspur have been increasingly linked with Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes in the last couple of days, but it doesn't look like he's interested in going to White Hart Lane.

Tottenham manager Martin Jol is walking the thinnest of thin tightropes at the moment and it seems inevitable that he will be replaced sooner or later (probably sooner?!?!) and when he does the tabloids have sounded Hughes out as a possible man to replace him, but why would he? Rovers may be out of the UEFA Cup but we are in a far healthier position in the Premier League and really have built up something special under him over the past three-years so why get rid of that to go to Spurs?!?! However, despite this tabloid talk is seems that Sparky has already ruled out a move to White Hart Lane.

Hughes told the Mirror: "I'm at a club where I've got great backing.

"It has taken me three years to put things in place, you don't walk away from that lightly
."

We know that Sparky will one day be tempted away from Ewood Park but this will almost certainly to for a post with Manchester United, or maybe Chelsea, but then again he would have other options including Everton, Barcelona and Bayern Munich as he has always maintained that he would like to manage clubs that he played for, and Spurs fall way outside of that category.

Sparky WON'T leave Rovers for Spurs!!!
I'm not going to get into this “we're a bigger club than you” crap and all the slagging off that goes with it, but WHY would he want to leave Rovers to go to Spurs, the only thing they can offer him at the moment that Rovers can't is UEFA Cup football.

We could offer him alot more than what he currently has not got at Rovers BUT I agree, he wont come.(PS I would like him here, as would the majority of Spurs fans)

We're going to get in a slanging match now(as you said you didn't want, but here goes......), 36,000 screaming fans sell out week in week out, sold out away allocation every match, £40M+ to spend every year, a good squad with some world class players and most importantly more money that what he's on now.

Oh dear scott the yid.. let e put this into perspective for you... would yu prefer to work for a boss you can trust, one that leaves all team matters to you and work with players that give everything for you.... OR.... work for a boss that goes behind your back, one that is difficult to trust and one where the players sulk everytime they are dropped. Witness the different reactions to being dropped of McCarthy and Berbatov....

And what your saying he'll get is a lot more fans who are complete;y arrogant... a good squad with some world class players..... I think given the chance Rovers would have 3 of Spurs players in their team. (Just for reference I'm talking Keane, King and Zokora). We dont need Berabtov we've got Cruz.

i guess there would be pro's and cons, if hughes believed he could cope with the pressure Jol has had to and believed he could work in a sporting director/coach system then the grass would be greener, greater financial power,an already in place young squad with huge potential, sell out crowds with the imminent move to a bigger stadium which too will sell out, a higher wage etc. However its down to how he feels from his quotes he has stated that it has taken him 3 years to get blackburn where he wants them why give that up now, very true, however has he taken blackburn as far as he can? how does he feel about a new challenge? these are all questions we cannot answer and do not know, i personally think he will stay at blackburn as the way our chairman has handled the whole situation has been disgraceful and would put of many a good manager. Personally hughes isnt my choice he is a good manager but not a tottenham style manager i still along with 36'000 yids at WHL have faith in Jol and would prefer to keep him anyway!
