So now we can guess why Portsmouth failed to push the case against the Tiny Totts over the behaviour of the Tott supporters who used racist abuse against Sol Campbell. It looks like Portsmouth were in negotiation with Tottingham over the manager’s job, and sending a file to the police would not have helped the whole process along.
Of course I can’t prove that at all, it is just speculation, but still…
What of ‘Arry. Up to the moment when he refused to take up Sol’s case I thought he was ok, average sort of manager. Suddenly walked out of West Ham on a whim, if I recall, was utterly useless at Southampton after he left Portsmouth very suddenly, was sacked by Southampton and went back to Portsmouth where he did his one great trick of pulling them out of relegation.
One interesting bit is that Comolli has gone along with Marcos Alvarez and Gus Poyet.
It is also interesting to remember how Ramos was taken from Sevilla, and how Jol was turfed out, only to become manager of a team at the top of the German League.
What this looks like is a club run by the players – never a clever idea. they have been criticising the manager, and his methods, style and approach.
So he lasted a year, which is about right for Tiny Totts.
A Warlock speaking on behalf of CURSE OF ARSENAL said, “We can’t really do much more at the moment. Since the Curse was put on the club they’ve lost the matches, had 3 players sent off in 2 games and lost their manager and 3 backroom staff. Not bad going. There might be a rebound today, but we’ll obviously be in for the long term, and relegation is certainly our aim.”
