Blanc Plans to be Tested?

Recently, the name of Laurent Blanc received very dignified acknowledgements as a possible successor to Sir Alex Ferguson.

Blanc, who also enjoyed a spell as a player at Old Trafford, was seen as somebody who made a remarkable impression during his spell at United whilst also showing, since, the credentials to inherit the managerial crown from Sir Alex.

But, if that is to be the case, somebody could be about to throw a spanner in the proverbial works.

Down in North London, having sacked Harry Redknapp, Spurs are on the lookout for a new boss and, the way this article is heading, it doesn`t take a genius to work out that Laurent Blanc is one of the candidates penciled in as a candidate to follow in the footsteps of Harry Redknapp with Daniel Levy keen to speak to the current French international team boss.

How does it throw a spanner in the works? If Blanc really wants to be the United manager at some point and succeed Fergie then I don't think it will matter who he manages at the time he'll take it. After all the only issue with getting another manager is paying the compensation, it's not like players whereby the contract prevents them from talking to other clubs full stop.

TheFamousNo7, I am Spurs season ticket holder and come in peace, If I may I do find your remark "I don't think it will matter who he manages at the time he'll take it" with regard to him succeeding Old Red Nose in the future. I would like to give you an example, should Blanc take the Spurs job and make a success of it, but at the same time, heaven forbid!!!, Manure's fortunes continue on the downward curve. Would he wish to leave to come to a lesser club just because he was an ex Manure player. I realise this situation has a lot of if's and but's to it but it is possible. Anyway is Roy Keane or Steve Bruce not going to replace Red Nose, I thought that was the long term plan!

Ox Yid im talking in the sense of if Blanc himself really wants to do as a personal preference, not necessarily anything to do with clubs getting better or worse. Obviously if Tottenham begin to do better than ourselves then no, he might not want to leave but whilst Fergie is at the helm then I really can't see us going on a downward spiral and will remain, at least while he is here and also depending on who succeeds him, at the top of English football and challenging year in and out. Yourselves however I can see going through a transition period of getting a new manager in and if it is Blanc then getting the players he wants to form the squad (your squad depth doesnt seem to be what it was) he wants whilst trying to keep hold of key players and fend off interest all whilst trying to get fourth let alone a title challenge.
TheFamousNo7
TheFamousNo7, Thank-you for reply. I have a personal feeling the Spurs manager's job is down to two, Blanc or AVB. With regard to the transition period thing no doubt you are right, when a new manager comes in he likes to bring his own people in both backroom staff and new players. So unless the new manager hits the ground running, As they say, Spurs may do well to finish in the top 5 next season. On your final point fending off interest for key players, I think the Modric/Chelsea thing at the beginning of last season shows the clubs stand on players demanding a move. I like to think Spurs and Chairman Levy have learnt their lesson on players contracts, All key players at Spurs, Modric, Bale, VdV, Walker, etc. are all long contracts and they do not need to sell to improve the squad.
Ox Yid
Ox Yid, out of curiosity would you happily see Modric and Bale, two key players sold for 80-90 mil if it meant the 80-90 could be reinvested in the team? You could potentially be swapping 2 world class players for more. I mean you've already seen how Newcastle for example have benefitted from something similar.
