a mate who was once CFO of Spurs told me that it was their DoF that was the real prize and that Emery was just OK doing a fair job with what he was given. His success as a cup manager/Europa League tended to hide Seville’s slight under-performance in the league/awful away record. Having said d that trophies are what it is all about and he knows how to win cups.
He’s ideal for West Ham who need to win at home to put bums on distant seats and if he wins them a cup he’d be revered for life. If he did the same with us we’d be initially ecstatic but calling for his head after our 4th consecutive 7th place finish.
It will be interesting to see if the PSG experience scars him or inspires him. It is a good appointment for West Ham if that is what they do but I don’t think he is clearly better suited to the PL than Fonseca or Silva, both of whom like to try to play more attacking football.
