Mitchell annoyed agents and staff rumour

Paul Mitchell is an ambitious man and there was talk when he arrived that he would be trained to take over from Franco Baldini as Director of Football, Technical Director, Sporting Director, they are all the same post.

If he has been performing part of that role, and it appears as though it has, then he will have been part of our negotiating team.  There is a suggestion that not only has he annoyed Spurs staff this summer but that he has annoyed agents as well. That would suggest that his negotiating skills are not up to par.

There is also the fact that we have Rob Mackenzie who is Head of Player ID at Tottenham and was Head of Technical Recruiting at Leicester City before he was head hunted. It has always seemed a strange set of affairs having the two and one wonders how their job roles overlapped.

The are other suggestions that it has been Mackenzie finding players, he found Wimmer for instance, Pleat found Alli. The anti-Levy crowd have obviously jumped on their bandwagon, but the has not lived up to his hype it would seem.

We will have to wait and see what news comes out. I'd expect Mitchell to take over responsibility, how thus affects N'koudou and Njie we'll have to wait and see.



  1. Any sources? Where is this info coming from that he annoyed people? I smell a load of BS

  2. We had Rob Mackenzie, he's left for Derby.

  3. I thought he would be a loss but if things are as you say then it won't be so bad. As we look to be a club on the rise it looks like a strange decision by him unless he's moving to more senior position.

  4. Why can't people see, it's not about anti levy, it's about the best for spurs. One league cup in 16 years ain't good enough, and don't start with the do a Leeds story. It's rubbish. And if villa can spend nearly as much as us on a striker, surely people can see they are being played?

  6. I don't see this as a dire situation at all. I like the wage structure that the spurs have employed at the club. Might this change in 2 years time once the club finishes the stadium, we shall see.

    I like seeing the players hungry, once they are offered such large salaries, I see a lot of them just mailing it in. No effort. So I must wonder why people are so negative on the Spurs management after what we achieved last year.
