What success did you have at Spurs
I fell out with the board after they agreed to sell Bale to Manchester City in the January transfer window on the last day. I had no time to sign a replacement and I decided that I would not be the manager of a selling club.
I went to City in the second season and managed to win the League and the league cup. I was out of the Champions League in the first knockout phase after being hammered by Bayern Munich who gave a German masterclass.
Favourite players to work with and are you planning on bringing any to the Toon?
I'm really excited about working with Ben Arfa and Obertran, they have phenominal pace and are really talented. They have had 2 years to adapt to English football and I think they will develop in this lower league similarily to how Colo did in the 2010 campaign.
I have some young stars such as Tamas Kadar, Haris Vuckic and Gabriel Obertran who I expect to flourish against whatwe can describe as "lower class opposition".
I also would like to thnk that Tim Krul can retain the number 1 shirt fro Holland despite being in the second tier,
