Where do we begin? Is our ‘predicament’ down to AVB? Tim Sherwood? Baldini? Levy, 4-4-2 or any of our current squad members who, one way or another, have taken some stick over recent performances.
If we start by looking at the bigger picture I think it’s fair to say, given what the club is going through, we’re not fairing too badly. Of course, as fans of Tottenham we strive for the best but sadly, and I really does hurt to say it, at the moment we’re expecting too much. I feel like the club has no direction, objective or long term plan & that for me has to be down to something terribly wrong behind the scenes. The cold, blank look on Daniel Levy’s face, win, lose or draw is deeply concerning. He doesn’t seem to engage with what the club needs on all levels. Yes, ultimately he is a businessman & desires profit as all good businessmen do but from my experiences in life, it’s a darn sight easier to lead a march if your soldiers are on your side.
The never knowing what’s coming next is in my opinion the most disruptive influence you can have in any organisation. One result away from another managerial shake up, one transfer window away from losing our best players & so on. Does he really care about the club? When it’s not working (& for the most part I feel it was working) the quick answer is to throw it away & buy a new one which just leads to instability & rebuilding every 18 bloody months!! While bums are on seats it will never be a problem I’m guessing but for the greater good of the fans, the club & all the staff it’s time Mr Levy took a long hard look at what’s going on & make a decision based on Tottenham from the other side of the fence. The side where the fans stand & together endure the ‘maybe next year’ season upon season. Where despite all the other expenditure in their lives they still find a way to stump up the money week after week to go along & support the boys & for what? Sure, some weeks you leave the ground feeling great as we’ve performed well against decent opposition but it’s all too short term because a week later, a result or some back room news will leave you feeling like you’ve been punched in the gut…..again. Then we get the line about if the board have no long term plan then there wouldn’t be talk of a new stadium & so on but that just leads me to thinking that a new stadium would not be for the greater good of the football club. It would go to service the demand for season tickets & matchday ticket demands……therefore lining the pockets of the ‘business’ even further.
I guess financial stability in this current climate is a good thing for the club but when you sacrifice the glory & desire for it you’ve got to ask yourself one thing. How much more is the every day fan going to tolerate before it all comes crashing down? Do you want a successful business Mr Levy because if you do, sooner rather than later you’re going to have to give us a successful football team to feed it. Time to start becoming a Spurs fan as well as a businessman Daniel……….please. COYS
