Glenn Hoddle linked with Spurs: Despite being appointed as the Wolves boss on Wednesday, Hoddle - who is not unknown for making controversial statements - has claimed he is in talks with a group of millionaire businessmen who want to buy Tottenham Hotspur and place him in charge. Unsurprisingly, the Tottenham chairman is not too pleased about this.

Apparently Birmingham's owner may sell his current stake and target Spurs himself. Not sure if this is separate from the effort Hoddle is touting.

From billsaysthis's link:

"I'm fed up with the travelling. I'd like to have one more challenge at another club nearer to London. "It's possible I might try to do a deal with Tottenham or West Ham next season if either club becomes available."
Nice to see where his loyalties lie. What happened to when football chairmen were actually fans of the club they owned?

SF, good thing Wolves gave him the reins then, isn't it?

Hoddle was a good player from what i've heard... But he doesn't seem to know how to manage very well. If he fucks up at Wolves, he should probably manage some 1st Division team after that...regardless that he managed the English national team.

Hoddle is losing it? Hoddle ever had it? The man isn't right in the head.

I think questions were raised about Hoddle's commitment to the Wolves job when he only signed a contract for six months. The very reason West Brom rejected him, in fact.
