Imagine having a manager that gushes about Eric Dier and Ben Davies, actually worships them. Imagine having an chairman that tries to convince fans that signing any player is near impossible when Fat Frank is playing Footie Manager. Imagine being a Spurs fan that's ever backed Levy or Maureen.

Imagine being a Spurs fan and wanting Poch out when he got us to the CL final. A joke club run by jokers, enabled by the weak fan base. £22 million a year for these two fools, only at THFC. #ENICOUT #MAUREENOUT.

Fingers crossed on Joe Hart. This is why you don't give Poch a buck in 512 days. If Daniel and Maureen can get this deal done then it's all worth it. It's why you build a billion pound stadium, you're dreaming about Joe Hart at the club. Get the deal done and I will forget about Daniel being the worst chairman in PL history. And who cares about the football, i'll put up with this two bit irrelevant dinosaur, if we get Joe Hart.

Sell Kyle Walker, sell Moussa Sissoko, keep everyone else. Get Marcus Edwards involved in the first team and put all transfer funds into one basket and bring home The King of WHL. Summer transfer business done.

Lucas Hood

1.) 12 May 2017 20:50:21
Who is the king of WHL?

2.) 12 May 2017 23:31:18
Must be bale madrid would hardly sell bale.

3.) 13 May 2017 09:45:37
And how is bale king of WHL, he left with his best years still ahead of him. What did your king help you achieve then Lucas?

Eds do you know if the Dawson to hull transfer is a goer, or is he going to dig his heels in like he did a couple of seasons ago when he should of gone to QPR? I also think Lovren and Lallana are massively overpriced and overrated and the club will not miss them. However this summer is huge for Daniel Levy and it will prove if he just wants to make money from the club or get top 4 for the club. Rumours that the Ben Davies deal is off and although there are supposedly other options this scenario has a familiar theme about it. Would it really be a surprise if Rose, Dawson, Naughton and Townsend are in the starting 11 next season, and then on August 31st the club announce we tried to buy a new lb or cb but we ran out of time. If anything like this happens and we get stuck with these players for another season this will be mis management on a level the same as when Harry wanted a new striker for two transfer windows and he eventually got given Louis Saha. There will be no excuses this time and all roads will lead to Daniel Levy.

Lucas Hood

{Ed002's Note - Dawson to Hull is certainly possible.}

1.) 07 Jul 2014 08:24:20
rose will go if we get a new lb if daws go we will get a cb it will be a surprise if we sell naughts or townsend, naughton prob won't go as is a squad player townsend won't go and why should he, he is young and upcomimg and has a bright future

2.) Thanks ed 002. Paul1982 its not acceptable to say if we get a new lb or if we get a new cb. These positions are critical and have to be addressed, without fail. Townsend should leave as he thinks he is Gareth Bale, and in the 25 odd games he played last season his contribution as a winger was 0 assists and 1 goal (an over hit cross), those stats are a disgrace for a club vying for top 4. This club needs a change of mentality and selling the worst of a bad bunch (Rose, Dawson, Naughton, Townsends and Kane) this will be a start. If we keep these players we might as well of kept Sherwood and gone with his philosophy and one man crusade of developing average english players just because they played for him at youth level.

3.) 07 Jul 2014 17:31:50
lucas lb is critical and I agree rose needs to go and we need a first class lb, at cb we have verts,chirhes,kaboul so if daws goes which looks likely whoever comes in will be young and cheapish and 3rd or 4th choice cb, naughton is 2nd choice to walker, who is goona come in and be happy to sit on the bench not goona get much better and when naughton was played at rb and not lb he was not 2 bad for a 2nd choice player, townsend is young has lots to learn let poch try and work with him for a season he has already said he needs to muture and perform better, kane is not good enough yet but can improve but again unless we sell ade or solado who is goona come in and hardly play and sit on the bench like naughts, I think we need a lb and left winger/ left forward and replace daws, don't forget levy spent over 100 mill last year and is not renound for being a big spender anyway. what do you thing eds?

4.) Good post Lucas! Apart from Daws, who age has caught up with, the others aren't fit to wear the Spurs shirt!
Rose, not bad going forward but defends like a 2 year old on speed
Naughton, looks brilliant, when he is sat in the dressing room
Kane, have promised no more comments ( shame )
Townsend, not sure what foot he likes best but shouldn't bother with either! Should be named, can't cross, won't cross, as he can't and never does! Until his injury, was the only winger in the PL who didn't know where the corner flag was and had no assists to his name!
Daws, a really great servant for us but not top ten standard any more . If you won points for bravery, loyalness and trying your hardest, we would have won the league by September with him in the team . I know Rose, Townsend and Kane are young players with time on their side, and that Mopo gets the best out of youngsters, but they have to have something there to start with!

5.) I don't want to party poop in this view but you're missing something. Each club in the premier league needs to have a certain amount of homegrown players. Granted the players you mentioned aren't the best in the world but Kane for example has bags of potential. If you want to sell all of our English players who do you replace them with? Academy graduates?

6.) Sorry, but Kane has bags of potential?
Yes we do need a certain amount of homegrown players, but do we need to fill the squad with Average players just to fill this quota? As for Naughton not being to bad when played at RB, what games were you watching?

7.) Ben davies is a step in the right direction, homegrown and with potential. Davo let me ask you this question, was it down to chance that Kane scored some pretty decent goals when given the chance by dim tim? Everyone has to start somewhere. It reminds me of what the German manager has said: discouraging english academy players is one reason why the league, and consequently the England national team, is in a mess. Yes Kane isn't a name that excites you but neither was modric or bale. Who had heard of rickie lambert a few years ago?

8.) Got to laugh at the negative comments about TS but he had the best win % of any manager we have had and yet he inherited the squad given by Baldini (God I Hate Baldini). In a few years to come, I reckon TS will do well as a manager!

9.) Paul1982 with cb I would think Kaboul will be leaving as well. If he does not leave they might as well promote Milos Veljkovic. The problem with Rose and Townsend is they are 24 and 23, they have had their chance and shown that their level is fighting relegation or championship not fighting top 4. Davo was right they are not fit to wear the shirt, and you can't flog a dead horse just because it is english. Spursredeemer with regards to homegrown rules, now is the time to give Coulibaly or Coulthrist a chance ahead of Kane. The scouts should be out unearthing the next batch of english potential as the current ones are tried tested and have failed, just a poor generation. Even if all players mentioned did leave we should still be able to hit the quota.

10.) How about falque and cristian ceballos, I wonder whether poch will promote them or send them on another loan, I heard they were quite good, Pritchard and bentaleb showed the most promise last season in my opinion luke

11.) Redeemer, a couple of points! Yep Kane scored a couple of decent goals and guess what, he missed about another 100 easy chances! I am not saying he isn't a good player, but not good enough for a club with top 4 hopes . It was only TS being stubborn, liking headless runaround players and trying to prove a point that he didn't like star players he got into the team anyway . Be honest, could you see any of the top six finishers making an offer for him? As for Modric and Bale, both were good players when they arrived at the lane but took time to settle, just like Soldado and Lamela will show this year! Next you will be saying we should play Obika alongside Kane, because we need our numbers up! I am all for giving our young players a chance, Coulibilly, Pritchard even veljkovic but to carry on flogging the same dead horses, that's foolish!

12.) Blimey davo, is obika still with us, he's worse than soldado. The alternative is to raid the big clubs for their deadwood, like arsenal. Do you think we should do that? It seems to work well for them.

13.) I don't know, and wouldn't want to be a manager! I know we need a bloody good LB, a new CB, and replace Kane or Ade up front! I would let Paulinho go as he slows us down to much as well!

14.) Soldado, lukaku and ade as back up would suit me fine. I would take boateng from bayern munich for CB personally, then hector Moreno in the future as backup if kaboul leaves. I would still like the idea of Rodriguez or Moreno maybe at left back, but knowing levy we will get Davies and lascelles as a centre back. (I know, I hadn't heard of them either. )



18 Jun 2014 01:41:20
Eds, is there any news on departures of Danny Rose, Andros Townsend and Michael Dawson? The news of them leaving cannot come soon enough.

Lucas Hood

{Ed001's Note - not yet, I believe Poch has asked for the chance to assess them for himself. Until replacements arrive, I doubt Rose and Dawson will be allowed to move on. Townsend I am not sure if he will be able to pass a medical this summer.}

1.) I would like to keep 2/3, Dawson is a solid backup defender and Townsend has shown promise, providing he doesn't shoot on sight all the time trying it imitate Bale. Rose I would replace with BAE, I like Benny a lot better! :)

2.) I would like to keep 0/3 and add Naughton to the list . While we are at it, let's get rid of Benny as well, like Rose, a total liability! If he was worth keeping, Arry would have bid for him!!

3.) I wouldn't keep those 3, I would also chuck in Naughton BAE but I would also put Lennon and Kane on that list aswell

Get out of my club Maureen and take your old rusty bus with you. Owned by Fat Frank and Mason Mount again for the second time in less than three months, utterly pathetic. When Jurgen Kloop plays his under 11s in the FA Cup Maureen plays his strongest team against Middlesbrough twice. Wednesday night was hideous but today was pitiful. A genuine has been of the game who was finished years ago. #MAUREENOUT #LEVYOUT #ENICOUT.

1.) 22 Feb 2020 15:03:48
Agreed it's about time fans protested against this awful board and get them out of the club, how many big clubs would have sat back and done nothing knowing they had no strikers at the club in January, also think Jose isn't taking the job seriously as he seems to be laughing and messing about in the press conferences, I've given up on this sad pathetic football club as its the same crap year in year out.

{Ed047's Note - given up on Maureen too then raver?

2.) 22 Feb 2020 15:37:08
Starting to think he's a has been, and is getting out done tactically by up and coming managers.

{Ed047's Note - to be honest mate I think he’s been on the slide since that run in with the Chelsea doctor Eva.

He’s just getting found wanting all the time, that’s even appreciating Kane and Son are missing.

3.) 22 Feb 2020 16:46:27
The not so special ones away record against the Big Six since January 2015:

P19 W2 D6 L11 F16 A34.

{Ed047's Note - totally agree YC, problem now is how long you stick with him.

4.) 22 Feb 2020 18:13:47
Surely Mourinho should be given a Summer transfer window, a pre-season with the players and at least a kinder injury list than the one he's had! It's been horrendous with our number 1 keeper out for months, N'dombele and Lo Celso in, out, in, out, Kane out for 5 months and now Son out for what went from 2 to 12 weeks. It's been ridiculous!
Ask yourselves where we would be in the league without these injuries and where we would be now if we'd let Poch carry on? 👍.

{Ed047's Note - I think fans from other clubs will be more than happy if you give him a bumper new 5 year contract if I’m honest

5.) 22 Feb 2020 19:01:52
Agreed mate he should be given a summer plus he's had no chance to get rid of the deadwood like dier, Ali, etc also agree with the injuries and we would be in the top 4 if we were not suffering with the loss of our 3 best players.

6.) 22 Feb 2020 19:05:20
With the greatest respect Ed047, I couldn't care less what fans from other clubs think or what would make them happy 👍.

{Ed047's Note - Don’t mind in the least, Arsenal.

9.) 22 Feb 2020 20:52:48
Thanks Ed047, that answer brought a big smile to my face 😁.

{Ed047's Note - ahh you think I’m not a fan of Mourinho because I support Arsenal. That brings a big smile to mine.

10.) 22 Feb 2020 21:44:31
I never said you weren’t a fan of Mourinho Ed047 and I didn’t imply it 👍
But do you want the best for Spurs in your comments as a Goon, I think not 😉.

{Ed047's Note - I may be a goon but I’m not really into saying stuff for the sake of it.

I honestly think employing Mourinho is a big mistake, you entered a great period under Pochettino, top 4 finishes a final of the UCL and a stunning new stadium which is without doubt one of the best in the world.

You’ve had a fabulous squad which after the final loss, stopped doing itself justice.

You, or should I say Levy decided a change was needed and for me with pretty much everything else in place you opted for Mourinho.

A huge mistake, he longer has what it takes, lost in the past like Wenger was.

So I don’t have any agenda as a goon, just feel you’ve done yourself zero favours with Mourinho, but like I said, thankfully he’s not my clubs manager.

11.) 22 Feb 2020 22:20:18
Thanks Ed047 for your response. I didn’t want Mourinho, check October messages. But a Goons opinion on here, do me a favour 😂.

{Ed047's Note - I’d love to do you a favour but sadly you’re a spud so I can’t. You’re stuck with him. 🤷‍♂️

Anyway good luck with the manager you didn’t want, you’re sure going to need it.

Harry Kane starting against Newport with the PL fixtures we got coming up and Juventus. It's a disgrace, why risk him in a game like this, it's crazy. You would think the penny would of dropped against Millwall last year, but no he doesn't learn. Real Madrid bound ha ha, another clueless AVB.

Lucas Hood

{Ed002's Note - He is a soccerball player like all of the others - if Spurs are going to start to see games as a "risk" to their players they will drop away pretty quickly. With rain due in North London on Wednesday perhaps he could sit the game out to remove the risk of him catching a cold?}

1.) 27 Jan 2018 18:34:48
No doubt Lucas poch will be in all the Sunday papers bragging about how special he is, he'll be lucky to manage real Sociedad nevermind Madrid for the man who wins nothing.

2.) 27 Jan 2018 19:11:06
In the PL and CL whatever happens happens. We got Manchester United on Wednesday then Anfield an NLD followed by Juve all in 17 days. If Harry were to pick up a knock against Newport and miss a few weeks that would be tragic. Use Llorente in the early rounds and give the £400,000,000 man the day off.

3.) 27 Jan 2018 19:42:43
Gotta agree Lucas, we complain when Poch plays our top players against the minows then complain when he rests players against the minnows.

give it a break lads. banana missed, just.



11 Nov 2014 14:04:46
There is an article where even the players are having doubts about Levy. "Levy needs to convince a group of players the way in which he runs the club is not the biggest problem facing Spurs". And "there is confusion over who exactly is controlling the transfer strategy and wheather Mopo wants players he has been given to work with. Those who feel they are not part of his long term plans are concerned they will be denied moves away from Spurs by Levys inflated asking prices". Like its been said the club is rotten from the top. This mans time is well and truly up.

Lucas Hood

1.) 11 Nov 2014 18:56:12
spot on.



22 Sep 2014 03:05:23
Finally the tone on hear has become poisonous, its good to read. The coffee is being smelt at last. I've said it before all roads lead to Levy. A mass of average players, Franco Baldini earning millions a year. A stadium that still hasn't got the go ahead after 7years. Excuse after excuse every transfer window. This man has had a free pass for to long from some fans but even the Levy backers must realise he personally is the reason behind our rapid decline, and he is the rotten apple at Spurs. ENICs time is up and the least they could do is find a buyer whose name starts with sheikh.

Lucas Hood

1.) 22 Sep 2014 16:38:57
Come back when you understand the ffpr, which I doubt you ever will.

2.) 22 Sep 2014 19:29:29
Spurski the most deluded off them all. Why are you so defensive of Levy, is he your dad or your brother. Apart from a healthy balance sheet what is there to defend?

3.) Spurski, you keep prattling on about the ffp rules! The way I understand it is this roughly, it's about your income, ( sponsorship, tickets etc etc ) compared to your cost! What I also understand is ENIC IS OWNED BY Lewis, 71% and Levy 29% . Lewis is also the main investor in the TAVISTOCK group, which owns hundreds of companies of various sizes, including residential property company's, energy companies, resorts, restaurants, financial services etc etc . Now if Lewis really wanted to invest in Spurs, he could use any of these companies as separate sponsors . Over two hundred companies, half a million sponsorship from each, equals 100 million sponsorship each year, equals top quality players, keeping inside your FFP RULES!

4.) 22 Sep 2014 21:09:06
Thats it Davo and ffpr won't stand up anyway. What can they do, make you have a 21 man CL squad and maybe a fine, so what. They won't ban anyone because the TV companies and sponsers won't allow it. It was a stupid rule made up by Platini to stop english clubs dominating. there's no chance one of Englands or Europes heavyweights will ever get banned from CL because of Ffpr.

5.) 22 Sep 2014 21:55:04
Davo, clubs are no longer allowed to do that ,Platini said something about it a few months ago. He used Man City and Etihad as an example.

Yes we were rubbish yesterday but its going to happen with a new manager and style, for me it was always going to be a transitional season.

I can't be bothered to defend Levy anymore on here, for me he has done a lot for spurs. Some of you whinge and moan all the time, yes its a banter page but it's tedious to hear anti Levy, Kane blah blah blah all the time.

6.) 23 Sep 2014 00:55:32
Don't worry spurski there is some fans who do actually understand the reality of the world. Spend, spend, spend is the answer for some of these fans but they neglect to remember that it doesn't work that way. We spent 100mill and these people were still moaning. Southampton spent next to no money and look at them so far this year. Man u spent the most in Europe this year and look at them. The reality of it is we need to stand by our side and support our team instead of pointing fingers at everyone. These people say we need stability but then are the same people who called for AVB'S head when things weren't going so well. The word fickle comes to mind!

7.) 1985, that's a crock of s***e! Southampton spent at least 50 million this year! As for us spending our 100 million, I don't think that's what's being moaned about . It's about Levy and his money wasting, his continual management changing, his total disregard of the fans, his failure to give the manager the backing he needs, to get the players the MANAGER WANTS, NOT THE PLAYERS THAT LEVY AND BALDINI WANTS . We were near the position that we only needed one or two players to make the CL consistently, so Levy then sells our best . We have never replaced Modric, will never ever replace Bale . These two players would have give us more seasons if we were playing CL, but thanks to lack of investment and our chairman pissing off every other chairman, we lost them! Levy has two things on his mind, a new stadium, a finish in the top six consistently equals a very good sales price equals lots of profit for him and Joe!

8.) 23 Sep 2014 13:50:23
Davo How do you know who picks the players, obviously Levy has a say in it though. You really don't know what goes on. Shall we get Alan Sugar back?

9.) I'd like to believe that if the manager of the day wants a player then Baldini and Levy would try to make a deal. I'd also like to believe that if Baldini and/or Levy suggests a player and the manager of the day says no, then they would drop the idea.

One of the problems of the manager of the day syndrome is that we never have a plan for more than 9-18 months without a change of person responsible for the implementation and the end result is what we now have to deal with.

10.) 23 Sep 2014 18:12:30
50mill in a record transfer year doesn't sound like a lot considering how much they received and the players they lost is it really, so wind your neck in mate.

AVB was signed as a coach not a manager so he was always going to have to work with what he was given, hence the signing of Baldini. This is all real simple stuff Davo.

These players you mentioned wanted to leave and Levy did a fantastic job getting good money for them. On top of that Modric was forced to stay on a season longer than he wanted did he not?

The constant sacking of managers you mention was also what the fans wanted so how was he wrong doing this? You yourself asked for AVB and Sherwood to get sacked so are you saying you are also wrong? Well I agree with you for once because you consistently are.

I also cannot understand how q business man like you claim to be doesn't understand that first and foremost profit needs to be made, or does your business just lose money constantly? If so that says a lot about your ability in your role!

11.) As a business man, spending £50 million isn't the same as spending next to nothing, if so I need to speak to my bank manager! You are right, first and foremost business's do need to make money, that's where we get the first problem here, is this really classed as a business? Haven't got proof of this, but if you spoke to most premier league owners, would they class having a team as a business, not sure most of them do it to make money . If that was the case they would invest it elsewhere . That brings us to another point, in business you have to keep up with the competitors or 1 - you tick along mid table with no ambition, waiting to be brought out to get the profit ( us under Lewis and Levy ) or 2 - you drop into the lower areas of your business sector and struggle against the stronger opposition around you .
Levy and co want it both ways, they want the glory, but not the cost . They know that week in week out, our fans will turn up whatever dross is served to them . They know they have a huge waiting list for season ticket holders, so that even if 50% of the holders didn't renew, they could replace them straight away .
As for Modric and bale wanting out, they have both said they left for champions league football! They knew they wouldn't get it at Spurs with the minimal investment that we had, so yes off they went . If we hadn't sold Bale and used that money, how much do you think we would have spent that season?
You then state AVB was a coach not a manager, so Baldini was brought in to oversee transfers . Fair enough, but he was brought in by Levy, wasted £75 million of that money, so who do we blame? Add to that, who employed Hoddle, Ramos, Santini, Pleat, Sherwood, AVB, then paid a fortune to get rid of them . Nine managers in 13 years, that's pretty good for business! You also state that we wanted him to sack Sherwood and AVB . If AVB had been backed, he would still be there . As for Sherwood who even wanted him? A typical tight arse move! Who has overseen the seven year failure to get a new ground, and it's still not started! Who spent millions trying to get us into the Olympic park and couldn't even manage that . We hear it all the time, what a wonderful business man Levy is, maybe, maybe not!

12.) 23 Sep 2014 20:31:02
Yellow-card, your spot on there about the planning but as spurs85 says the sackings was what the fans wanted and most were neceasary and obvious. The only sacking I disagreed with was Martin Jol.

There is a long term plan in place though and that is the development squad and this was a big factor in getting the training centre built. Its one of the best in world sport let alone world football.

Levy and Lewis will also deliver us (even if Lewis sells) an amazing stadium and all this under ffpr's!

Would be nice to have the top top players but we can't afford their wages for starters so players like Eriksen, Vertonghen, Lamela and Lloris isn't that bad.

13.) 23 Sep 2014 21:05:23
Next to nothing compared to how much they received is what I was obviously saying. Also in a year when the epl spent a record amount on transfer fee's. Both combined shows teams do not need to spend big to be a success. They lost very good players but are still doing very well compared to us losing one player and going backwards after spending 100mill on players. As I write this they are beating them across the road.

Do you honestly belive that? You honestly think MOST chairman are not in it for the money? Tell me then how many of the 20 epl teams made a loss last year? Yes keep up with your competitors but within your resources not beyond them otherwise your just being plain stupid with your finances, which is always bad for business.

Yes they did both claim they wanted to leave for champions league football but c'mon surely you are not that naive? The money and the chance to play for a club like Madrid is so obviously the real reason. Don't believe everything you hear and read. Look at the facts and make your own mind up. If we had gotten cl football they would've still left. United had cl football but Ronaldo still left did he not?

Do you think I care how much we would've spent if we hadn't sold Bale seeing as my point is you do not need to spend money to get success?

If AVB had been backed he'd still be here? Are you telling me that 100mill in one season was not enough of a backing? How much should we have spent in you opinion? The only people who didn't back him were the fans, as soon as we wasn't playing well the fans got on his back demanding better. Demanding instant success instead of having patience and letting him build something special in the future. We are not a top four side but have the expectations of such and most fans cannot accept that.

Levy has made some mistakes granted but every human being has but with you he cannot do anything right he is the poison in our club in your opinion and that blinds you in every aspect of your arguments and causes you to have tunnel vision. Be careful what you wish for, better the devil you know is a very true statement in this case. Who knows what we could end up with if he was to leave!

14.) A Chairman that reverses his decisions based on "what the fans want" - that's a little scary. He is responsible for making decisions and running a business that happens to be a football club.

There in is the conundrum ENIC is running a successful business which has not translated into much success for the football club over the last 13 years.

If they get close to the rumored one billion for the business they have been incredibly successful business men, again, of that there is no question.

I agree yellow-card it isn't ideal but if the fans are not happy then that brings along with it a bad atmosphere which in turn brings down the morale of the players which has an effect on the way they play so makes it harder for the manager to get results as well as the respect of the players.

Depends how you measure success I suppose. Only 1 team can win the league, only 1 team can win the fa cup, only 1 team can win the league cup, only 1 team can win the europa league and only 1 team can win the champions league. Out of all them competitions the best odds we have is with the league as there's a 1 in 20 chance of winning that competition and sorry to disappoint you, we just are not good enough to win it. If you were to say that a epl team was to win each of those competitions then that still leaves 15 teams in the league without a cup at the end of the season. Simply put we have more chance of failure than success, if that's how you measure success that is. Now another way you could look at it is we still exist as a epl side, we are always (in recent years, since owned by ENIC I must add) at the right end of the table. We are financially stable as a club and we have the ability to attract good quality players to our team. Now I'm not saying I wouldn't love for us to win a cup, I celebrated the league cup victory as much as the next fan but you need to be realistic and accept there is better teams out there who will get the trophies. Fans need to learn to enjoy being a part of this great club instead of thinking they have some divine right to say how it should be run because they attend a few games, buy a shirt for over the top prices or have a season ticket, because this is their decision and nobody is forcing them to spend their hard earned cash in such a way.

If Lewis does decide to sell for the rumoured amount then perhaps that would prove they were only in it for the money, if they turn it down does that then suggest the opposite in your opinion?

16.) Yellow card, that is true . The team we support is a successful business but it has left us as a club with very little going for it . Yes I am blinded by the fact that I want a successful club, but that's never going to happen under Levy and his pals! By this time next week, we could be as low as 12th in the league, not good emough!

17.) It's all based on rumor and speculation of course. But the billion is a number that Lewis has supposedly put out there as his selling price.

Therefore, the business is for sale at a price to be agreed with Lewis opening the negotiations at one billion.

I don't care what it is, a car, a player, a business, a football club . once you name a price it is for sale. Now the challenge is finding a buyer at a price that you can accept close to your asking price.

18.) 23 Sep 2014 23:26:37
Well as I understand it the offer is around 1 billion but Lewis is unwilling to sell at any price but as you rightly say it is all based on rumours and speculation so unless it actually happens none of us can claim to be in the know, apart from the all seeing oracle of course

Yes we could be as low as 12th, correct but seriously who pays any attention to the league at this point of the season? A few years back we were 3rd challenging for the league at Christmas and ended up 5th. What a difference half a season can make.

Excellent Davo, that is one of this sites all time top draw posts. How anyone can argue against what you say, its misguided loyalty. The same ones who say just smile and accept the likes of Rose and Kane, don't dare be critical of them, they wear a Spurs shirt so just go along with it. 1985 we don't need to spend money, stick with what we got, are you for real? Its rock bottom so just start from scratch again, wholesale changes are needed and Poch is probaly realising this, its clearly going to be a transitional year. The players are not good enough but just stick with them anyway, brilliant thinking. Who employed Avb, Sherwood and Baldini? Who sacked Harry? Who gave Harry, Saha on the brink of a title challenge? Levy constantly pokes his nose into team matters and has done for 12 years. Since when does a coach and DoF work in the Uk yet Levy persists with this. THFC is ENICs cash cow so why defend Levy?

20.) Based on the official, legal, club announcements I forget the exact wording but no offer has been made and no discussion is currently active in respect to an acquisition or merger.

21.) 24 Sep 2014 07:19:04
Lucas learn to read before you reply mate as I didn't say we we shouldn't spend money just that spending money is not necessarily going to solve our problems. Do you not see we've tried everything but back the manager? We have spent good money and it hasn't gotten us anywhere.

No matter what we've done in recent years it hasn't worked the only thing we haven't tried is to stick by a manager and let him build something for the future. I'm done now with this as it's like talking to a brick wall. Some of you just want someone to blame for us not actually being good enough to be a top four side. Well we are not, the fact we are there fighting for a place amongst the elite is because we are being run well. But I don't expect you to understand.

22.) 1985, Spurski, we all want what's best for our club but we all look at it from different angles . We are all going to blame someone, for different reasons . The fact that the Eds give us this page helps us to vent it here and not at the Lane, is bloody ideal but these different views prove one thing, we all want what's best for our club .

23.) 24 Sep 2014 17:48:05
Very true Davo, 1 thing is for sure it's been a very interesting debate. Let's hope whatever happens it's for the best of the club we all love.

Very disappointing transfer window, if only we had a chairman as ambitious as the Hull chairman. We now rely on Ade and an injury to him, and that will be it. Trying to get Welbeck shows the level of Levys ambitions. The beast being sold and Townsend staying is scandalous.

Eriksen is the biggest scaredy-cat anyone has ever seen on a football pitch. Bottles tackles 9/ 10 in his favour, if 2% of his corners beat the first man i'd be shocked. His free kicks are woeful and doesn't score any. Far to timid to take and score a penalty. Only does ok against the little teams. He should never of worn the shirt again after the Man City 2nd leg, that through ball to Aguero shows what he is all about. His performances this season are a disgrace and he was a big part of why Poch was sacked. For such an average player he is well above his station and the sooner he leaves the better. I hope he goes to Real just for the laugh, they will chew him up and spit him out after his first three corners.

What total and utter nonsense. Take out Eriksen, Alli and Toby and that is Liability FC. 1. Maybe and not ready until next season. 2. Pep? Klopp? Where did you get £100 mil from? 3. Other than Harry who is better than GB or Luka? 4. Manchester United in form, Chelsea get going, top four is up in the air now. 5. Why are we favourites, a drained out depleted mismanaged squad. 6. Irrelevant, not got the squad down to chairman and manager. 7. Again why are we favourites to beat a good Dortmund team who at worst are equal with us minus Harry. 8. The one thing certain fans had to cling onto, is it even true anymore and who cares anyway? In all seriousness though we have got the highest paid boardroom in the Prem and that is something to be very proud of.

Isn't Aulas the one who said in 25 years of football Daniel Levy was the biggest drain he's ever had to deal with? The transfer policy at THFC is let the 19 other Prem clubs and about 12 from the Championship do their business first, then we'll take the cheapest of what's left. Daniel Levy the man that earns 6,000,000 a year at Spurs while Toby A earns less than half that, amazing.

Can Levy work his magic and find another hidden diamond teenage winger in the French third division? As fans all we can ask is that the club give four yachts a positive balance sheet each year and that we have the highest paid chairman in the Prem for the fifteenth year running. Get them two boxes ticked and the rest doesn't matter, Poundland Fc have justified their existence.

It was Talk sport but they had a journalist on earlier and his ITK was the club will not spend more than £45,000,000 on one player and his wages will have to be a maximum of £70,000 a week. Star players will not be arriving and only squad players are being looked at as with those numbers you cannot improve the first eleven. Take from that what you will, but would you bet against it? Probably just end up being Barkley on transfer deadline day.

Yeah a Jose masterclass, very very good. One of football's great pleasures is Man Utd getting battered especially when the mandem are dishing it up.

That's exactly what you get when you combine Maureen and Levy. A club run from top to bottom by inept muppets. #MAUREENOUT #ENICOUT.

Yeah defo. For me he should of been sacked straight after the first time Fat Frank violated him. Not even capable of managing in the Portuguese fourth division. Ideally ENIC sell to a proper owner before the summer and they bring back Poch and back him. #ENICOUT #MAUREENOUT #BRINGBACKPOCH.

You got him hook line and sinker with that. Maureen is the best show in world football at the moment. The downfall of a once average bully boy manager who thinks he is special but had to spend billions to win his Carling Cups while boring everyone to death. When you look at the Spurs dugout you think a little old lady has wandered away from the local old peoples home put on a £200 Tottenham puffa jacket and is somehow sat in the managers seat. Parking his pathetic bus with his pathetic tactics at home to Norwich. He has always been a footballing coward and is the true definition of a joke manager. #MAUREENOUT #ENICOUT.
